The NBA Season is less than a week away. We are another year into the Warriors reign as the best team in the league but this year at least feels different. A number of teams in the West and a few in the East have made legitimate improvements. The 2017 Rookie Class looks stacked and primed to make real impacts. Also, the 2018 NBA Draft will the last with the draft lottery we are familiar with; this can lead to a lot of trades b& last minute tanking. But we also learned during this NBA Offseason is that many teams are still trying to win, despite the Warriors being on a different level. All these factors play into our NBA Over Unders, which doubles as a league preview.

The NBA Outsiders make their Over/Under picks for the NBA Western Conference. Pete Kennedy, John-Lucas Duffy, Frank Villani, and Justin Babb are back to predict and preview the “stacked” West. So many stars moved West this year including Jimmy Butler, Paul George, Carmelo Anthony, Paul Milsap and other West stars moved inside the West like Chris Paul.
But with all these stars and stacked teams, that leaves the West 10-plus teams who expect to make the playoffs. On the bottom, the West has a number of teams with true young talent. Though, these youngins may not be expected to win, they are expected to impress and that leads to intrigue across the entire conference.
Only 8 teams get to make the playoffs and many teams improved. On the other hand, many teams still want high draft picks but have more talent than years prior. The moral of the story is the West is crazy talented and there is a ton to discuss. That is why you have the NBA Outsiders.
Below are our 4 NBA Outsiders picks for the Vegas NBA Over Unders – Western Conference. You can see our picks and two locks here, but if you want the reasoning, you’re going to have to listen.
