Last year’s Milwaukee Bucks finished 44-38 and were, in my opinion, one of the league’s most disappointing teams. They had the roster to compete in the Eastern Conference, but their defense was horribly schemed and Jason Kidd/Joe Prunti’s offense did not use their weapons to their full potential. Those coaches are gone now and Mike Budenholzer steps in. He’ll bring a modern offense to this team and he should put them well over their total of 45.5 wins.
The NBA Division odds are up and today we’ll start with the Eastern Conference. Last season, these race wasn’t very close in the Atlantic as the Raptors ran away with it. That is not expected to be the case this year as it could be the most competitive division with the 76ers, Raptors and Celtics considered three of the best teams in the East. The Heat won the Southeast last year and they’ll be challenged again this year by the Wizards. While the Cavaliers almost certainly won’t be returning as the Central champions. These divisions look to be much more interesting than last season.
