We here at VSiN are thinking about you, you are in our prayers, you have our deepest sympathies ... if you are holding an Oklahoma City Thunder Over 22.5 wins ticket. OKC notched its 20th win before the calendar flipped to April. With 25 games left, the Thunder needed to go a modest (punches calculator) 3-22 to get you to the window. Barring a miracle, that ticket is worth hanging on to only for the bad-beat story that goes with it.
It has been that kind of NBA season — rest, injuries and downright nonsense on a night-to-night basis. As a fan, it has been a crummy product. As bettors, we saw this coming. In December, I wrote about how this season was just to get the NBA back on its schedule, and with the condensed season and short turnaround, we should expect some mayhem. Most of the elite teams coming into the season, especially those that were in the bubble the longest, stayed under their season win totals. As unpredictable as it was most nights this year, we should have seen this coming from a big-picture standpoint. That being said, we are in for what looks like a heck of a postseason.
