Phoenix Suns

Vegas Over/Under: 28.5

The Record Projection: 26-56 of fromal The Bet: Prevent but lean under
The Phoenix Suns are oozing with potential, which makes this kind of frightening bet. Even if you’re able to reasonably expect the team to complete with no more than 28 wins (and you can), you don’t wish to get caught by a breakout from Marquese Chriss, Dragan Bender, Josh Jackson, Devin Booker or even T.J. Warren.
Individually, it’s hard to anticipate huge strides from any 1 participant.
That’s even true of Booker, with a long way to go on the defensive end before he could have the worth of a top-50 contributor, however many things he might have the ability to score in one farcical game. And yes, when you’re fouling to make extra possessions and pump up the score in a competition in which the perimeter was not especially close, it qualifies as farcical. Interesting and undeniably impressive, similar to Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point outburst, but farcical.
Collectively, but the Suns‘ capacity to exceed expectations is scary. Marginal improvement throughout the board could create our win projection laughably low, regardless of how tough it could be to compete at the Western Conference.
Over just isn’t the safe bet. The wise play remains anticipating only a few extra wins upon last season’s mark (24-58) since the young guys get their feet wet and the group likely explores the transaction market for Eric Bledsoe.
