The new NBA season is almost here. Fans are counting days and bookmakers can’t wait to open some interesting markets. One of the top online bookmakers
has already started predicting the outcomes.
We have witnessed scoring outbreaks last couple of seasons. NBA teams became really offensive-oriented with more and more teams scoring over 110 points margin. This is the first time the league has experienced such a change.
Well, nothing lasts forever, and according to the recent roster changes, we should expect a whole bunch of changes. One of those is, in fact, scoring. First of all, let’s take a look back at the previous league’s scoring leaders:
It is clear that James Harden and Russell Westbrook have been dominant in this field. Well, now they’re teammates, and ball-sharing will be a key issue of Houston Rockets’ offence. Could these two scoring freaks deliver at the same pace? According to the bookmakers, NO!
One of the top bookies opened a market where it favours none of the NBA players to pass the 33.5 PPG mark. The odds against the world’s craftiest players are set at 1.29 (29/100). But do not count them out yet, as the slogan goes: “NBA - Where Amazing Happens”. We still can expect some great performances from players like LeBron James and Stephen Curry, considering the heavy load these two have to carry offensively.
