Midseason Win Total Update
Just about every team in the NBA has played at least half its regular season schedule. The two squads expected to meet in the NBA Finals for a fourth straight season are currently trending UNDER their season win total as the Warriors and Cavaliers need to pick up the pace.
Golden State (67.5) isn't far off as it has won nearly 80% of its games, but it is still a shade shy of the pace of 68 victories.
Cleveland (54.5) has struggled of late, putting them behind the 8-ball for eclipsing its win total in spite of sitting in first place of the Central division.
Chicago (22.5) is currently in the basement of the Central thanks to a 3-20 start, but the Bulls have rebounded by winning 14 of the past 21 games. Thanks to this winning stretch, the Bulls could cash the OVER by the All-Star break.
Orlando (30.5) and Charlotte (42.5) have been two of the biggest disappointments in the Eastern Conference, as the two teams are buried at the bottom of the Southeast division.
Memphis (38.5) and Utah (38.5) were playoff teams last season but have underachieved at the midway point of the season.
