Vegas Pegs LeBron’s New Team at 48.5 Wins

Will LeBron James lead the Lakers to the playoffs in his first season in Los Angles? According to oddsmakers at the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas, the answer is “yes.”

The SuperBook on Sunday opened betting on NBA season win totals, estimating the Lakers at 48.5 wins. This would put Los Angeles in a tie with Utah for 4th in the Western Conference, behind Golden State (62.5 wins), Houston (54.5) and Oklahoma City (50.5).

The Boston Celtics top the Eastern Conference with 57.5 wins, followed by the Philadelphia 76ers and the Toronto Raptors, each at 54.5 wins.

Los Angeles’ win total would be a 13.5-win improvement over last season. Still, many predict their relative inexperience to hold them back from making the jump into elite status that other LeBron teams have done.

“We’ve seen the impact LeBron has had in his prior free-agency moves, although that involved staying in the Eastern Conference,” SuperBook oddsmaker Jeff Sherman said. “With the more competitive Western Conference, his impact wouldn’t be as drastic as what we’ve seen prior. We figured about 10-12 wins, plus the young players growth to get to the number we set.”
