Northwest Division - Oklahoma City Thunder

Basketball - NBA - 18 Oct 00:00

Still more than one month till the new NBAseason starts but I already have some bets that I like a lot. I will start with my favorite team Oklahoma City Thunder to win their division. You may think that I bet on OKC because I am a fan but you would be wrong. I am actually pretty pessimistic about them in general but this year I feel they have a very strong team. The big improvement over the last season is the acquisition of Paul George. This guy is the perfect number 2 besides Russel Westbrook in my opinion. He is a top 15 player and he is not only great on offense but also a very good long defender. With him, Robertson and Patterson on the court they can switch a lot and I expect them to become a good defense. Another issue that OKC resolved this summer is their backup point guard. They signed the veteran Raymond Felton with a minimum contract which should help a lot when the reigning MVP Westbrook rests. Last season OKC was one of the worst teams in the league in +/- when their MVP rested and that happened because his backup Christon was one of the worst players in the NBA that got to play over 15 minutes per game. Another new signing Patterson should also be an improvement over the rookie Sabonis who started last season. Apart from the new signings I also expect improvements from young players like Adams, Albrines and Grant. A bright spot for this roster is that there are no very old guys that should regress. This division is composed of other 4 team:T'wolves, Nuggets, Jazz and Trail Blazers. All are pretty strong teams that should reach the 40 wins at least. However despite the fact I really like the talent that Nuggets and T'wolves have we must remember that they did not even reach the playoffs last season. While I believe both these teams will reach it this year after Butler and Millsap acquisitions I still believe OKC has similar talent but way more experience. The other 2 teams the Blazers and the Jazz will most likely finish with a record close to .500 so I am not too concerned about them. Skybet are offering the best odds. No other bookmaker offers 2.62.
