NBA Playoff Teams' Season Win Totals 2020-21

NBA regular season team win totals 2020-21 continues to be the big discussion on NBA Gambling Podcast. Last episode, hosts Ryan McKee and Zach Broner covered projected win totals for the eight teams with new head coaches. Today’s episode covers the additional 10 playoffs teams from last season that didn’t change coaches: Milwaukee Bucks, LA Lakers, Boston Celtics, Denver Nuggets, Miami Heat, Utah Jazz, Toronto Raptors, Portland Trail Blazers, and Orlando Magic.

NBA Playoff Teams Win Totals 2020-21

At the top of the show, Ryan asks Zach for his take on the John Wall for Russell Westbrook trade. They discuss how that affects the Houston Rockets’ and Washington Wizards’ starting lineups and projected season win totals. After that, the guys rapid-fire through 10 teams’ offseason moves, last seasons’ stats, RPM projections, updated started lineups, draft picks, and biggest player losses. The podcast moves from highest projected win total (Bucks’ 49) through lowest (Magic’s 31.5). Ryan and Zach both gives their OVER or UNDER picks for each teams’ regular season win total. However, their final best bets for each team will be released later this month, right before the season begins.
