NBA Regular Season Win Totals

And with the 2019-20 NBA season set to begin this October, expect everyone the buzz to grow exponentially louder. With the new season coming up, Nitrogen Sports Blog picks three intriguing teams and checks out there regular season NBA win totals 2019.
Milwaukee Bucks (57.5)
The Milwaukee Bucks were the best team in the NBA regular season last year, posting an impressive 60-22 record and losing just eight games at home. Although they failed in their mission to win an NBA title, they remain a loaded team that’s spearheaded by the reigning league MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Bucks are the favorites to win the Eastern Conference with odds of +150.
The path to the NBA Finals is seemingly clearer for the Bucks, with Kawhi Leonard moving back to the Western Conference and Kevin Durant not expected to play for an entire season to recuperate from his injury. Will the Bucks cover their NBA win totals liem this 2019?
Los Angeles Lakers (51.5)
The Lakers are expected to do much better this season compared to last. After a shaky start, things started to improve for the 16-time champions last season. However, an injury to James saw them eventually missing the playoff cut, as they finished with a 37-45 record.
But with James well-rested along with the additions of Anthony Davis, Danny Green, and Dwight Howard, it would be a disappointment if they didn’t finish in the top three in the Western Conference, especially with the Golden State Warriors losing Durant while Klay Thompson is expected to be out for a while. A target of 52-55 wins should be the goal and it is very achievable.
Los Angeles Clippers – 54.5
The Clippers defied the odds last season. Despite trading Tobias Harris and Boban Marjanovic, they still managed to secure the last playoff spot with a 48-34 record. They then took the Golden State Warriors to six games in the first round of the playoffs.
If the Clippers made the Warriors sweat without a legitimate superstar to lead them, imagine that same team with not just one, but two superstars in Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. The Clippers are the clear winners of the offseason. Can they parlay that into a championship?
