The NBA preseason has officially begun and it hasn’t taken long for the hype for the new campaign to build. Los Angeles Lakers fans are already explaining how their team is going to figure out how to compete again, Clippers fans are just glad to see Kawhi Leonard back on the court while New Orleans Pelicans fans are elated with a trimmed down Zion Williamson.
With that being said, the NBA win totals have been updated at BetAnySports and some teams appear to be in a better position compared to others. Let’s take a look at three teams that appear to be offering good value on the board.
Los Angeles Clippers
Regular Season Win Total Odds At BAS: 52.5
The Los Angeles Clippers are coming into this season with one of the most talented rosters in the league. Leonard is getting right back into the swing of things with some preseason action, Paul George should be on the mend and John Wall looks to give the point guard position a boost. The star power is apparent on this team and the only problem is everyone’s health. However, if this is a group that doesn’t get often injured in 2022, they will certainly pass right over that 52.5-win total that is currently set before them.
They were able to win 42 games a year ago with George playing in just 31 of them and Leonard missing the entire year. The addition of Wall, Norman Powell and Robert Covington with those guys coming back is going to fly them up the standings.

Oklahoma City Thunder
Regular Season Win Total Odds At BAS: 25.5
There isn’t any doubt that the Thunder are completely rebuilding their roster. They already have a ridiculous amount of young talent on the roster, but it’s still going to take some time for it all to gel together. Plus, this is one of the best seasons to not perform well as every bad team is looking for Victor Wembanyama in the upcoming NBA Draft.
Injuries are a factor here as the team will be without Chet Holmgren after he got injured very early on in the offseason and will now miss the entire campaign. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander might also miss the start of the season. Couple all of that information with the fact that the Thunder won just 24 games last season and 22 games the year before, and the under here looks that much better. Look for SGA and Lu Dort to have another great season, but that’s likely going to be all for now.
San Antonio Spurs
Regular Season Win Total Odds At BAS: 22.5
The Spurs must also be thinking about the possibility of adding Wembanyama to their roster in the upcoming draft because they have much hope to contend in 2022-23. They practically rid themselves of talent this offseason, trading away star point guard Dejounte Murray in exchange for the veteran Danilo Gallinari and three first-round draft picks. Then they waived Gallinari.
Their roster is now severely depleted and lacking any serious type of star power. Their starting lineup is looking like Keldon Johnson, Doug McDermott, Josh Richardson and Jakob Poeltl. There isn’t any doubt that this roster will remain as one of the worst teams in the league when it comes to talent. It’s going to be hard to go under that 22.5-win total because the number is so low. At the same time, expectations shouldn’t be high at all for this team given the roster they’re fielding.
