The NBA regular season is roughly three months away and records are already starting to take shape, according to Vegas.
PointsBet, NBC’s official sports betting partner, released an initial odds list for NBA regular season win count and the Boston Celtics have to be pleased. The 2022 NBA runner-ups posted 51 regular season wins last season and are now predicted to win 55.5 games this upcoming season.
PointsBet is yet to release odds for the Brooklyn Nets, Denver Nuggets, Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks and the Utah Jazz. This is likely due to pending trade developments, such as the landing destination of the Nets’ Kevin Durant, that could drastically change a team’s outlook.
