Vegas Over/Under: 28.5
Fromal’s Record Projection: 26-56 The Bet: Prevent but lean under
The Phoenix Suns are oozing with potential, which makes this kind of frightening bet. Even if you’re able to reasonably expect the team to complete with no more than 28 wins (and you can), you do not wish to get captured by means of a breakout out of Marquese Chriss, Dragan Bender, Josh Jackson, Devin Booker or even T.J. Warren.
Individually, it’s hard to expect massive strides from any one player.
That is even true of Booker, who has quite a ways to go about the defensive end before he could have the value of a top-50 contributor, however many things he might be able to score in one farcical game. And yes, when you’re fouling to make additional possessions and pump up the score in a competition in which the perimeter wasn’t especially close, it qualifies as farcical. Interesting and undeniably impressive, much like Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point outburst, but farcical.
Together, but the Suns’ ability to exceed expectations is frightful. Marginal improvement across the board could create our win projection laughably low, regardless of how hard it could be to compete at the Western Conference.
Over just isn’t the bet. The wise play remains expecting only a few added wins upon last year’s mark (24-58) as the young men get their feet wet and the team probably explores the transaction market for Eric Bledsoe.
