99% of Punters Backing Warriors to Break NBA Wins Record
The Chicago Bulls record of 72 NBA wins in a season is one of the greatest achievements in professional sports history. However, it’s about to get bettered if William Hill punters are to be believed.
A mammoth 99% of the William Hill book favours the Golden State Warriors, led by MVP Steph Curry and Australian Boomer Andrew Bogut, to rewrite history (again).
The 72-10 record produced during Michael Jordan’s reign in Chicago in the mid-nineties was thought to be untouchable, but at 22-0 to start a season, punters clearly believe it’s time.
“We actually opened the market at $8, but have been forced to slash them to $2.90 already,” said William Hill spokesperson Tim Ashworth
“They’ve also been backed off the map at $4.50 to not lose a game until the New Year, which would be another stunning achievement."
LeBron James’s Cleveland Cavaliers are the $4.00 favourites to stop the streak on Boxing Day, alongside the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday.
