Vegas Over/Under: 67.5

Fromal’s Record Projection: 70-12 The Bet: Prevent lean over
In general, avoid gambling on teams which have to have a season to be able to reward supporters of the over.
Though 67.5 successes may seem a bit low for a talented roster that somehow got better later winning 67 games and making its second title in three Decades, just six squads have emerged successfully from 68 or more regular-season competitions in a single year:
2015-16 Golden State Warriors: 73-9
1995-96 Chicago Bulls: 72-10
1996-97 Chicago Bulls: 69-13
1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers: 69-13
1972-73 Boston Celtics: 68-14
1966-67 Philadelphia 76ers: 68-13
This season’s Golden State Warriors are every bit as talented as the aforementioned squads. After bringing all their crucial pieces and adding Jordan Bell, Nick Young and Omri Casspi to the mix, they may well be the most talented team in NBA history. We are even comfortable projecting them to break past the 70-win threshold yet again.
But this high up on the scale, no allowance for error exists. One or two major injuries would make reaching 68 successes hopeless. One stretch of cold shooting can wreck their chances.
Stay away, no matter how confident you may be in this bunch.
