With the rosters for the most part locked in and training camp right around the corner, Vegas has unleashed their 2019 NBA Win Totals. For this season we are going to go through every team on this list, one by one, in a season preview. We’ll start with the worst, the Atlanta Hawks (24.5) and finish with the best, the Golden State Warriors (63.5). You can use this page as a landing page where all the links will be posted going forward.
For what feels like the 20th season in a row, the West got much better and the East got worst. The Western Conference playoff picture looks like an absolute bloodbath with the Nuggets, Pelicans, Timberwolves, Spurs and Trailblazers all vying for three playoff spots.

The East took a hit this year in talent, but the Boston Celtics seem like a real contender. They have a 58.5 win total and it’s easy to see why. A healthy Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward, year two of Jayson Tatum and year three of Jaylen Brown is a really great core, but the big reason is that LeBron James now plays in the West. The East is theirs for the taking with only the 76ers at 54.5 and Raptors with Kawhi Leonard at 54.5 to challenge them for supremacy. I feel like they are a bit low on the Bucks at 45.5, but I also don’t think that team is as good as this top-3.
The Wizards (don’t see it) and the Pacers (could surprise) are right there with them and then it’s a steep drop-off. It’s a lock that there will be a team in the West that misses the playoffs with a better record than a team that makes the playoffs in the East. Maybe even two. One interesting team to watch in 2019? The Cavs. Vegas sees them not even making the playoffs, but that seems a bit harsh. Kevin Love could do something as the man.
I’ll start posting individual team previews tomorrow starting with the Atlanta Hawks. Until then here is a complete list of the 2018-2019 NBA Win Totals.
|Golden State Warriors||63.5|
|Los Angeles Clippers||36.5|
