Team Outlook and Scouting Report

REGULAR SEASON RECAP

After 162 games, their expected win percentage is 44% based on the money line odds. At 69-93 they are in line with these expectations. If you bet on them to win every game you would be down quite a bit (-1346 units). They are not good against the spread (76-86) for a -2236 loss. Their over-under record is 92-63 with 7 pushes. Their 69-93 record this season failed to meet expectations. Their game-by-game odds projected record was 71.5-90.5. Anyone betting on them to win every game would have lost a lot (-1346) based on a 100 unit risk per game. They were not good against the spread going 76-86 (-2236 loss). They went over 92 times and came in under 63 times.
