- Matt Moore (@HPBasketball) takes a look at his NBA win total bets last year and what lessons he can apply to the 2019-20 season.
There are three things on the NBA calendar I pay the most attention to. Some folks adore the draft; others love the big narratives that emerge. For me, it’s about the fine details.
The MVP race, the playoff picture and the NBA’s win totals are the three things I devote the most time and energy into each season.
Last year, we debuted an ambitious project. I made the case for all 30 teams for their win total on both the over and under and then ranked the top-30 best bets. It was a lot of words and a lot of fun.
We’ll be embarking on that project again as the season gets closer, but as I start to expand on my early impressions I posted last week, I wanted to look back at what went right and wrong for me last year in the analysis, what I’m proud of and what I regret.
Here are my takeaways from reviewing my 2018-19 win total analysis.
