Vegas Over/Under: 28.5

Fromal’s Record Projection: 26-56 The Bet: Avoid but lean under
The Phoenix Suns are oozing with possible, making this a terrifying bet. Even in the event that you’re able to reasonably expect the team to finish with no more than 28 wins (and you can), you don’t want to get caught by means of a breakout from Marquese Chriss, Dragan Bender, Josh Jackson, Devin Booker or even T.J. Warren.
Individually, it’s tough to expect massive strides from any 1 player.
That’s even true of Booker, with quite a ways to go on the defensive end before he can have the value of a top-50 contributor, however many points he may have the ability to score in one farcical game. And yes, when you’re fouling to make extra possessions and pump up the score during a contest in which the perimeter wasn’t particularly close, it qualifies as farcical. Fun and undeniably impressive, much like Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point outburst, but farcical.
Together, but the Suns’ capacity to exceed expectations is frightful. Marginal improvement throughout the board could make our win projection laughably low, irrespective of how hard it may be to compete in the Western Convention.
Over just is not the safe bet. The smart play stays expecting just a few added wins upon last season’s mark (24-58) since the young guys get their feet wet and the group probably explores the transaction market for Eric Bledsoe.
