NBA season win totals market report

Over under win totals for each NBA team are shown below.

Atlanta Hawks:

Pairing Dejounte Murray with Trae Young in a star-studded backcourt could help the Hawks shore up their defense. They took a major step backward with a 43-39 record last season and are only projected for a few more wins after making a major move.

Boston Celtics:

Some books have taken down Boston’s projected win total with news breaking that Ime Udoka could be suspended for the entire season. The first-year coach was at the heart of the Celtics’ incredible turnaround last year, and he might be sidelined, with Rob Williams (knee) also set to miss significant time.

Brooklyn Nets:

Despite all the distractions from Kyrie Irving and James Harden and injuries to Kevin Durant, the Nets won 44 games last season. They may have Durant, Irving, and Ben Simmons active all year, giving them a great shot to win 50-plus games if they stay focused.

Charlotte Hornets:

The Hornets had the same projected win total last season and went comfortably over with a 43-39 record. They haven’t made many changes this offseason, while the rest of the East seemed to get stronger.

Chicago Bulls:

Lonzo Ball (knee) might not be ready for the start of the season, and the Bulls were basically a .500 team (24-23) without their point guard last year. They went 22-13 with Ball active but went 23-26 after the calendar turned to 2022 with Ball and Alex Caruso (wrist) hurt.

Cleveland Cavaliers:

Arguably the most surprising team in the NBA last season, the Cavs aren’t sneaking up on anybody now with Donovan Mitchell added to a talented young roster. Their projection was only 28.5 wins last year, and they finished 44-38.

Dallas Mavericks:

Luka Doncic (+450) is the MVP favorite once again, as he enters another season with a veritable co-star now that Jalen Brunson is gone. The Mavs won 29 of their 52 games at home last season.

Denver Nuggets:

Jamal Murray (ACL) should be ready for his first game action in 18 months when the Nuggets open on Oct. 19. With key role players like Bruce Brown and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope ready to assist two-time reigning MVP Nikola Jokic, some books are projecting Denver for 51.5 wins.

Detroit Pistons:

Cade Cunningham started to catch fire in the second half of the season, and now he’ll be working with sharpshooter Bojan Bogdanovic after the Pistons swung a deal for the former Jazz forward.

Golden State Warriors:

The defending champs came roaring out of the gates with a 27-7 record last season and wound up winning 53 games. Some books have their projection close to that same total, as Donte DiVincenzo and second-year wings Moses Moody and Jonathan Kuminga will fill the void following the departures of Gary Payton II and Otto Porter.

Houston Rockets:

The Rockets are expected to be one of the worst teams in the NBA again after they dealt Christian Wood to Dallas for the 26th overall pick last June.

Indiana Pacers:

While they were more exciting after swinging a deal for Tyrese Haliburton and Buddy Hield, the Pacers went 6-20 following the trade and won 25 games while finishing with one of the highest defensive ratings in basketball.

Los Angeles Clippers:

Kawhi Leonard (ACL) will likely ease his way back into the lineup, but the Clippers have incredible depth on the wing with Norman Powell, and Robert Covington added to the fold. They’re among the championship favorites and have a lofty projected win total.

Los Angeles Lakers:

The Lakers came into last season as title favorites with a projection of 52.5 wins and floundered their way to a 33-49 record while missing the playoffs. They can bounce back if LeBron James and Anthony Davis stay healthy this year.

Memphis Grizzlies:

The Grizzlies rolled to the second-best record (56-26) in the West last season despite missing Ja Morant for 25 games and Dillon Brooks for 50 games. They lost some of their unparalleled depth, and Jaren Jackson Jr. (foot) should miss the first month or two.

Miami Heat:

After earning the top seed in the East with a 53-29 record last season, the Heat didn’t make any major moves this offseason. Tyler Herro could serve as a midseason trade chip if Pat Riley sees an opening to land another star.

Milwaukee Bucks:

The Bucks came out of the gates slowly but still went 24-13 before New Years and finished with 51 wins. They have a 69.8% winning percentage (88-38) when Jrue Holiday plays.

Minnesota Timberwolves:

Expectations are high for the Wolves after they mortgaged their future to pair Rudy Gobert with Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards. They should improve on last year’s poor road record (20-21) with Gobert there to anchor the defense.

New Orleans Pelicans:

The Pelicans went 13-13 after acquiring C.J. McCollum last season and managed to make the play-in tournament with a 36-46 record. Zion Williamson is reportedly in great shape and ready to try to bring New Orleans over the .500 mark.

New York Knicks:

The Knicks gave Jalen Brunson a handsome four-year deal and extended R.J. Barrett but missed out on a potential trade for Donovan Mitchell. Their preseason projection is similar to last year’s when they wound up finishing 37-45.

Oklahoma City Thunder:

The Thunder might continue fielding an uncompetitive team in order to get higher draft picks going forward. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (MCL) will likely miss a good chunk of time early in the season.

Orlando Magic:

No. 1 overall pick Paolo Banchero will get all the touches he can handle on this rebuilding team. Wendell Carter Jr. and Mo Wagner are also promising big men to pair with young PG Cole Anthony.

Philadelphia 76ers:

The Sixers overcame the Ben Simmons distraction to win 51 games last season, and they could be much better this year if James Harden enters the season in good shape. They added P.J. Tucker and De’Anthony Melton and are a good value at +500 to post the best record in the East.

Phoenix Suns:

While other books are projecting the Suns to win 53.5 games after they’ve gone 102-33 in two years with Chris Paul, DraftKings is holding fast at a lower projection. There are reasons for concern after their rough Game 7 home loss to Dallas, the tense Deandre Ayton contract negotiations, and the Robert Sarver saga.

Portland Trail Blazers:

Damian Lillard (abdomen) only played 29 games last year, and the Blazers went 27-55. He’s expected to be healthy this year along with center Jusuf Nurkic and exciting young guard Anfernee Simons.

Sacramento Kings:

De’Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis will look to form more chemistry throughout a full season after they produced some exciting lines without earning many wins at the tail end of a lost season.

San Antonio Spurs:

The Spurs have the lowest projection in the NBA after trading Dejounte Murray, who led the team in points, assists, and steals last season.

Toronto Raptors:

Masai Ujiri and his staff continued to unearth new talent, and the Raptors hardly missed a beat without Kyle Lowry as they went 48-34 last season.

Utah Jazz:

The Jazz won a league-high 52 games in the shortened 2020-21 season, then went 49-33 before getting bounced from the playoffs last year. They blew it up this offseason and will rebuild under first-year head coach Will Hardy.

Washington Wizards:

Bradley Beal decided to stick it out with Washington, and he has a couple of talented forwards to work with in Kyle Kuzma and Kristaps Porzingis. The Wizards are expected to pretty much match their 35-win total from last season.

Here is a look at what NBA win totals looked like on September 28, just a few weeks before the start of the 2022 regular season.

How to bet NBA Futures

Futures bets are propositions, usually on how a team might fair during the season or postseason. Odds are set very early during the offseason on most sportsbooks, including the favorites to win the NBA Finals.

As of August 2021, the Brooklyn Nets were the favorites to win it all at +220. That means a bet of $100 would win you $220 (for a total payout of $320) if Kevin Durant and company were to bring it home.

Odds are also available on Division Winners, Conference Winners, and all of the individual Postseason Awards such as MVP, Sixth Man of the Year, and more.

When a team or player is considered likely to win an award or a division, they will be listed with negative odds. So, for example, the Milwaukee Bucks were -5000 to take the Central Division heading into last season. It would have taken a bet of $5000 to win $100 because Milwaukee was such an overwhelming favorite to win a division that features the likes of the Indiana Pacers, Chicago Bulls, Cleveland Cavaliers and Detroit Pistons.

The most important thing about futures bets is to not overreact. There is so much hype surrounding professional sports, especially after such a tumultuous offseason, that it’s important to slow down and consider the tangible impact of each player added.

Yes, the Lakers improved on paper. But with so many contenders in the field, consider the level of risk compared to the reward, as +380 odds are not that great when choosing one team out of a field of 30.

These odds are set in order to inspire action. The lines move based on how much action they get and are often an indication of where the public is leaning.

Where do I find NBA win totals in a sportsbook?

In order to find win totals on an online sportsbook, simply click the NBA tab and look for a subset labeled “Team Wins” or “Regular Season Win Totals.”

All 30 NBA teams should be listed with a proposition listed between two numbers. For example, the Atlanta Hawks proposed win total was 35.5 last year. So 36 wins was the over and 35 wins was the under. You would have been a winner if you bet the over on the Hawks last season as Atlanta went 41-31 in the abbreviated season.

If a book lists a team on an exact number and they hit that number, it’s a “Push” and your bet is returned.
