LVH SportsBook Lists Cavs’ Over/Under at 32.5 Wins

We had news earlier this week of the first casino to unveil its over/under wins projections for the 2012-13 NBA season. The predictions for the Cavs? Not too promising.

LVH SportsBook has Cleveland projected for 32.5 wins and a .396 winning percentage, tying for 10th in the Eastern Conference with the Detroit Pistons. Both teams are projected to be 11 games behind the Atlanta Hawks and Brooklyn Nets, who are tied for seventh place in the final two playoff positions.

Rounding out the Central Division, Indiana is projected for 51.5 wins, Chicago for 47.5 wins and Milwaukee is in ninth place with 36.5 wins. The Cavs are tied for the eighth-worst record in the NBA in these projections, placing them right in the middle of the lottery.

The Cavaliers finished with a 19-63 (.232) record in 2010-11 followed by a 21-45 (.318) mark in last year’s lockout-shortened season. Projected out to 82 games, the most recent total would be 26.1 wins. But, the Cavs began last season 16-23 (.410) before injuries took their toll and many D-Leaguers made their way into the starting lineup.

    They are my second fav team until we cash in that pick…Hot Head Hickson was waived by Sac last season. Still hard to believe.

    now, if they can just get over the distraction of their fans hating their ownership, the arena issues, and that the team has been terrible since 2002 yet still allows Petrie to be GM despite his refusal to acknowledge advanced statistical usage.

    i agree, i want them to be good. and, it’s hard to point out many teams that miss the playoffs (and they don’t even need to make the playoffs, just get close) for as many years in a row as it would take for us to get a 2nd round pick only.

    but man, is the deck stacked right now. here’s to Cousins, T-Rob, Evans, Thornton, and lil’ Isiah bucking all odds if only for 1 year.

    Originally I thought 32-50 but I’m leaning towards probably something around 35-47. There will be some severe growing pains but if this team can stay healthy I think this upcoming season could be a nice foundation for a much improved team next year. One more draft and possible a free agent or two and then I can see the p word being mentioned, playoffs.
