Thinking lakers might follow the raptors/kawhi approach and rest Lebron for the regular season
Thinking under
I'm leaning Under due to it taking time for them to mesh, you don't just assemble a bunch of guys who've never played together and expect instant results, it will take a minute for these guys to get going, also your point about LeBron is a valid one, Toronto rested Kawhi for about 20 games throughout the season which allowed him to be fresh for the playoffs, I could see the Lakers doing the same for LeBron

Schedule hasn't even come out yet. Let's see how many back to backs everyone has, and how often their opponents are in the second of a back to back.

All about the under for Lakers.

Yeah, that's the safe way to go......

I could only consider OVER if we knew AD would stay healthy and we knew Brick would miss a lot of games.

As great as Davis is I don't think he can carry these Lakers to the promised land (or 55 wins).

Will be interesting to see how far he can take this team though who couldn't even qualify for the play-offs last year.

A Laker run will truly point to the greatness of Mr Davis.....

Everyone and their mother is going to load up on 13-Klaws to come out the West and UniBron is going to clip the Clips, probably in 6. I'm sure this post is LBJ-trolling motivated but let's pretend it isn't for a minute; you are probably the only guy here, besides me, who realizes how good AD truly is; he's phenomenal. 13-Klaws is a problem, UniBron is bigger fucking problem.

AD is a super stud and only going to get better. Yes, phenomenal is very appropriate verbage.

That said the Clippers are just going to be better. They were better this year before the additions and adding KL AND George?

PG is another guy that might not get the total amount of respect due, he can flat out ball.......

Adding those guys to a team that was pretty damn decent last season makes for the clear chalk coming out of the West.

If Lakers end up being better I will be forced to give your boy some credit.

Get it out now, they are going to be better.

"When you look at the other L.A. team, the Lakers, their win total moved from 51.5 to 56.5 right after landing Anthony Davis from the New Orleans Pelicans, but have since shifted back down to 51.5 across the market."


This is mainly NJ books.....you never see this type of volatility off-shore or Vegas. Are they moving on a nickle bet?

The Suns were 19-63 last season.

Monty Williams is the new head coach in Phoenix.

That's the fifth head coach there over the past seven seasons.

I can see both Steph and Draymond having a chip on their shoulder. Curry coasted in this last regular season. They have won without Durant before. I wish we knew how many minutes Klay would play per game post All Star break.
I might wait, maybe they get out to a slow start and bet the revised number. Although their lack of depth makes we wary


Possibly the same with Houston

NBA Team Wins - Regular Season Wins - Los Angeles Lakers - Over 51½ Wins -120

If they cant even get 52, they will be like 4 or 5 seed
Hold on, the 5th seed last year had 50 wins and you can't tell me the Lakers weren't at least the 5th best team in the West LY. You can tell me whatever you want, I'm going to believe my eyes over what anyone else says.

I don't know much about betting season win totals anymore but Over 51' seems to me a great bet... basically are they 2 to 3 to 4 to 5 wins better than last year.... Fuck yeah.

I don't care how many wins they end up having but I would blindly put up a 54 (just based on the 2 seeds win total LY) and let the market iron it out.

lol Lakers at 54.5 (FanDuel)
Seriously, educate me here. I don't know why that is laughable. Just a cursory analysis of the team tells you that they have the best 3 that ever lived, the best 4 in the game and a what, a top-three #5? Just that there should get you 50 wins.

cousins in top 3 centers ?
Embid, Jokic, ????,.. Haven't seen much of KAT but yeah, Boogie is Top-3. Why do we forget how good this guy is/was becuase he was coming back from a torn achilles and then tore his Quad. He may start, he may come off the bench, either way, he's gonna be a fucking problem for teams.

What's wrong w/ that? Where would you have put it? That's pretty much exactly where I would have opened it but i admitely don't know much about pricing win totals.

This team isn't any better than the 2017-2018 Pelicans with a good Cousins, Rondo, AD and a good bordering on great pg Holiday.
Add Moritic for 30 games too. That team won 48. 51-52 were it sits now seems a little more realistic. The West is better.

Boogie is not a top 3 center. Embiid, Jokic, Horford, Vucevic, Gasol, Capela, Drummond, KAT, Gobert, that's just off the top of my head

This is coming from the same guy who says Kyrie > AD. Kyrie isn't even close to being a top-10 player; not even close and AD is arguably the Heir to the Throne.
