Warriors have NBA's ninth-toughest schedule based on Vegas over/unders




 

While rosters are still a month away from being finalized for Steve Kerr and the Warriors, the Vegas oddsmakers are already working hard to project the upcoming NBA season.

Based on NBA over/under win total projections, Yaya Dubin of NBAthlete.com put together a strength of schedule ranking for each of the 30 teams.

The Warriors show up as having the ninth-toughest schedule, although the list is clearly skewed toward western conference teams. Just one eastern conference team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, are above the Dubs'.

Dubin went further and broke down the projections by month, indicating that the schedule does get easier mid-season for Golden State.

While these numbers will undoubtedly change significantly before the NBA regular season opens up on Oct. 22, it is clear the Warriors will have major competition to make the playoffs for an eighth consecutive season.
