In what is sure to be the strangest NBA season since the last NBA season, prognosticators expect your Suns to make significant progress during the 2020-21 campaign.

It’s to be expected. The Phoenix team that provided the single biggest story of the last season by tearing through the Orlando bubble with an 8-0 mark replaced some of those guys with even better guys. You do the math.

Oddsmakers at betonline.ag are tagging a win total of 37.5 wins for the Suns. Today the plan is to kickoff the new season on December 22nd and run a slate of 72 games. If the Suns are able to achieve a 37-35 mark, it would be their first winning record since Jeff Hornacek’s squad shattered expectations in 2014. Full list of odds from betonline.ag:

Because there is much to be determined in regard to the rosters for Brooklyn and Houston, the brains have broken down the odds thusly:

Rockets Win Total with Harden and Westbrook

Over/Under 42½

Rockets Win Total with just Westbrook

Over/Under 36½

Rockets Win Total without Harden and Westbrook

Over/Under 34½

Nets Win Total with Harden

Over/Under 45½

Nets Win Total without Harden

Over/Under 43½

Words from the suit at BetOnline:

“It was tricky this year to calculate Win Totals with the shortened season and I will admit some may be a touch off. We are really curious to see how some of these get bet, especially a team like the Charlotte Hornets after the draft and the acquisition of Gordon Hayward. We are not opening the Nets or Rockets Wins just yet as we’re still waiting on the Harden rumors, which would have a major impact of probably 6 wins for the Rockets. Here are the tentative win totals for those teams in a multitude of situations.”


Not happy with a 37-35 record, or 38-34?

Then look over at Vegas! Bovada has released its own win predictions, and they have the Suns slightly higher at 38.5 wins — good for 7th in the West.

Last year, Bovada had the Suns at 29.5 wins in 82 games and they exceeded the prediction by 5 wins... despite playing only 73!

With 72 games on the docket this season, predicting wins is not as easy as years past. So let’s just go with seeding. Where will the Suns finish in the West this year?
