Vegas Over/Under: 28.5
The Record Projection: 26-56 of fromal The Bet: Avoid but lean under
The Phoenix Suns are oozing with potential, making this kind of terrifying bet. Even in the event that you can reasonably expect the group to complete with no more than 28 wins (and you can), you don’t wish to be captured by a breakout out of Marquese Chriss, Dragan Bender, Josh Jackson, Devin Booker or even T.J. Warren.
Individually, it’s tough to anticipate massive strides from any one participant.
That is true of Booker, with quite a ways to go about the defensive end before he can have the worth of a top-50 contributor, however many points he may have the ability to score in one farcical game. And when you’re fouling to make additional possessions and pump up the score during a contest in which the perimeter was not particularly close, it qualifies as farcical. Fun and undeniably striking, similar to Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point outburst, but farcical.
Collectively, however, the Suns’ capacity to exceed expectations is frightful. Marginal improvement across the board could make our win projection laughably low, irrespective of how hard it could be to compete at the Western Conference.
Over just isn’t the bet. The smart play stays expecting just a few extra wins upon last year’s mark (24-58) as the young guys get their feet wet and the group probably explores the transaction market for Eric Bledsoe.
