The over under according Vegas for the Raptors win total right now is 27. And after a bit of discussion with my team, we're all in agreement that we pooled in some money to collectively wager on the over for the Raptors. There was a lot that went into this analysis, the fact that the east looks like it's a bit more settled now all for except the Raps and maybe Washington.
But time and time again, the single thing that kept bringing us back is the fact, and am surprised is not getting much play on the HQ, is that it's BC's contract season. We just can't imagine him rebuilding this team (as much as I want to be in the Harrison Barnes Sweepstakes) in a lame duck year. In combo with the TPE, he's got to make some kind of splash. Not only that, he always has.
The only thing I'm worried about is, going into the season without using that TPE and the Raps slide in the first 6 weeks and BC gets fired, we can kiss our collective $5K goodbye, as the I'm sure by then, the Raps would be on an all out rebuild. But.. we're betting against.
Speaking of which, what should we do with BC before the season starts?
