#NBA Overs are now 65-44-1 this season for +17.84 units.— Sports Insights (@SportsInsights) November 1, 2018
At this point last season they were just 53-61-2.
That's drastically different from last season when unders had an eight-game lead at this point in the season.
- Klay could’ve broken Kobe’s 81 pt record twice now....he’s the 4th best player on the Warriors.— Bulletin (@BULLETlN) October 30, 2018
- Warriors would’ve scored 200 points if they kept their starters in all 2nd half.
The NBA is even more ruined now than it used to be and I didn’t even think that was possible.
Despite the lopsided run of overs, teams like the Warriors are actually saving bettors by benching their starters, most often at the end of the third quarter.
Imagine how many points would be scored if teams kept the pedal to the metal? The over would hit nearly every time.
One of the biggest reasons for the higher scores is the new adjustment to the shot clock. When a team gets an offensive rebound, the shot clock resets to 14 seconds and not 24. While that doesn't seem like a lot, it has forced teams to put up more shots, which translates to more points.
Lines have been higher to start this year, but it looks like they'll only go up based on these results.
