The Golden State Warriors have begun the 2015-16 season with an unprecedented 16 straight wins. And the conversations are beginning about whether Steph Curry and Co. have a chance to match or top the single-season wins record of 72, set by the 1995-96 Bulls.
And Las Vegas is beginning to wonder, and incredibly the odds of The Splash Brothers accomplishing the feat once thought to be unbreakable aren't that high.
Bovada currently has the Warriors' odds of winning 73 or more games at 5:1. Still, the odds of them not breaking an all-time record are at 1:8, which is understandable considering no team outside of Jordan's Bulls has even reached 70 wins; the 96-97 Bulls won 69 games, while the 91-92 Bulls and last year's Warriors won 67 games each.

The Warriors also find themselves nearly halfway to another record, that of most consecutive games won. The 1971-72 Lakers won 33 straight games, and the closest team to accomplish that was LeBron James' Miami Heat in 2013 (the Bulls ended that streak). Those odds are much steeper at 10:1, while betting against the Warriors winning 18 straight games beginning now is at 1:25.
A more interesting bet Bovada posted Friday was whether the 16-0 Warriors would lose first, or the 0-16 Philadelphia 76ers will win first. The odds (-175) are on the Sixers winning first (they do play the Lakers and Nuggets at home next week) instead of the Warriors (+125) losing first. Golden State's only realistic potential loss in the coming games is at Toronto on Dec. 5.
So, who ya got?
