    Default Sports Interaction has Raptors at 32.5 Over

    So after a rolling out to a 5 - 1 record what feeling to you have going into this season as an over under 32.5 games.
    The team is looking tight and seems Dwane Casey has these guys dialed in on D. 32.5 seems low so knowing what we know of our own team, I'm thinking of betting the over, and it looks a lot closer to 40 (dare I say more)..

    Thoughts?

    I agree.

    I see the Raptors as third in the Atlantic division behind Boston and Philadelphia and above Brooklyn(No Bench) and NYK (Big Mess) (wouldn't it be great if the two new york teams were actually bottom feeders, I know I would get a kick out of this).

    I see the playoffs standings as:

    1.Miami
    2.Boston
    3.Indiana
    4.Philadelphia
    5.Chicago
    6.Atlanta
    7.Toronto
    8. Milwaukee

    I've been saying since the start of the off-season that we are going to make the playoffs.
    The play in the pre-season, particularly how good Jonas has looked, has me even more confident.

    I still think they'll be lucky to snatch the 8th seed. Preseason doesn't mean crap.

    That being said, I think JV looks far better than I expected so soon. The numbers will be deceiving but once this team is in the playoff battle you'll start hearing lots of talking heads down south talking about how much they really like him and how he does all the "little things" that perhaps the casual fan doesn't notice and that don't necessarily show up in a box score.

    Y'know, the things we'll have been lauding him for 6 months for doing and putting all these "experts" on blast in comments sections of their columns for ignoring while they hype up the box score beasts.
    LET'S GO RAP-TORS!!!!!

    While I would like for us to take that 7th seed, New Jersey may have something to say about us or the Bucks locking up a top 8 guarantee. It is going to be a battle for sure, I expect that the teams in the East in spots 6-10 will be separated by only 4 or 5 games.

    I'm sticking with a 38 win prediction. I hope I'm wrong, but I think we fall just short of the 8th seed.

    Same model I used last year says 44% winning percentage so I will predict 36 wins + or - 2.

    Eighth seed or bust. Seriously, if the Raptors make the playoffs they will be considered a success. If they fail I won't be interested in any rationale for failure such as injuries, inexperience, or "damn, I didn't have any clue that the Bobcats and Wizards would be this good!"

    Go Raptors!

    I would be very cautious attributing any importance to the preseason. Honestly, I can't see how anyone can have much of a feel for this team given all the new bodies and the big role that is going to be played by a 20-year old centre.

    Still, 33 wins seems doable. That's still 16 games below .500, so it's not like it's a Herculean feat.

    we could potentially be anywhere from 4th to 10th imo but the way this squad is playing looks wayyy better than last year and that should turn many of those close games into wins. might be a big homer but the only team i see that is in a different category than us is miami. we're fully capable of beating any other team in the east which was shown last year with a bunch of d-leaguers and no bargnani. this year we have 3 players who should average 15ppg or better which is going to make our offence much better, while on the defensive end were not getting torched by opposing pgs. we are wayyyy under the radar

    As much as i hate those 2 NY teams they wont end up at the bottom. It'll go like this:

    1.Boston
    2.Brooklyn
    3.Toronto
    4.NYC
    5.Philly

    Playoffs, East:
    1.Miami
    2.Chicago
    3.Indiana
    4.Boston
    5.Brooklyn
    6.Atlanta
    7.Toronto
    8.NYC

    This is the most realistic i can see it being

    Our team is actually really weird right now. Cause none of us know how good we actually are. Like last night against milwaukee we kept it close the entire time and it looked like we were barely trying. Kyle lowry just calmly pulls up and puts the nail in coffin from deep. Then we had a game where we lit up the Knicks like time square. Our team is looking like the denver nuggets of the east with a little bit of Okc sprinkled on top. Only time will tell how good we really are or will be
