Eye on Basketball Podcast: Eastern Conference over/under odds
Zach Harper and Matt Moore go over the over/under odds for each team in the Eastern Conference, argue about the Celtics, and debate the Knicks' offense.
We're one week away from the start of the 2013-14 NBA regular season, which means it's time to start guessing whether or not the teams will hit their projected win totals. We start with the Eastern Conference in this podcast episode. Matt Moore joins me to go over whether or not each team in the East can beat their Vegas/sportsbook over/under win total and we disagree on over half of the conference.
Are the Philadelphia 76ers going to be historically bad or can they approach their over/under of 17 wins? Are the Boston Celtics going to be decent or will they tank out the majority of the season? Are the Atlanta Hawks the biggest lock to go over their win total? Do the New York Knicks have what it takes to reach 50 wins? Will the Chicago Bulls return to their regular season dominance of 2010-2012 and surpass their over/under?
We discuss all of those odds, plus debate the Celtics' talent, the Knicks' offense, and much more.
