We are roughly 1/8th through the season and there is a lot of basketball left to be played. There are a lot of stories yet to play out and it is way too early to predict anything. Well, except maybe the Warriors winning another title. That said, there is a good enough sample size out there now that we think we know a little something about this league and we think there are some great value plays still on the board. Let’s take a look at our favorites for November.
The Golden State Warriors are the best team in the NBA and I’m not sure it’s all that close. They won the championship in each of the last two seasons and this could be the third time they do so. They are one of the best teams to ever play together in this league and a win this year could cement their status as the best ever. This team won 58 games last year when it felt like they never really cared. This year’s win total is set at 63.5 wins.
The NBA Division Odds are out and we already covered the Eastern Conference division odds, now we’ll tackle the West. Last year we saw the Rockets and Warriors almost laughably win their divisions. The Warriors had a 16-game advantage over the second place team and the Rockets had 17-game advantage over the next best team. Those two divisions don’t look to change much, but the Northwest is a different story. Only two games separated the first and fifth place team in this division last year and that will likely happen again this year. Let’s take a look.
