Sounds like very good opportunity for us to make some dough.

I saw it and thought it was a typo. We won more games last year with a fat Al, a hurt Kemba, Cody and MKG as well as carrying one of the NBA's most disfunctional players in "Born Stupid."

If we win under 42 games, this season is an utter failure.

There may be a statistical model that computes likelihood of injury that is informing that WL record. Esp with prior year injuries to Al, Nic, Kemba, MKG and Cody.
Here comes McRoberts, the throw to Walker, it's in the aaaaaiiiiirrrr, YESSSSS! Bobcats win it! My my my, Kemba Walker. Steve Martin - Toronto 12/18/2013

How about we do an over/under as a fundraiser for Hornetsplanet? Everybody who plays will commit to donating $25 to the board if they choose the wrong side.

I personally think 43.5 games is a reasonable number.

Classic Vegas with the public betting on large market teams. Here would be my picks most to least confident:

 

Over Charlotte 32.5 wins:

Under Knicks 31.5 wins

Under Lakers 29.5 wins

Over Portland 26.5 wins

Under Miami 45.5 wins

 

Title: Houston at 20-1 is possibly the 2nd best team. Not my favorite but Spurs, Thunder, Clips, and GS are all at 8-1 or better.

Title: Boston at 100-1. No clear cut second best after The Lebrons. If he goes down a decent-ish team in the East gets a punchers chance. If Ainge finds a GM to take his 17 quarters for a $1 bill I like 100-1. Next would be Charlotte at 300-1.

Craziest lines:

 

Crummy Knicks 31.5 wins (should be closer to 26-29) and are at 200-1 to win the title

Hornets are 32.5 wins but at 300-1

In loaded West Nuggets at 200-1

I don't like to seriously gamble but I can certainly throw down a few bucks on 33 or more wins. Is it legal to bet on line from North Carolina? If so, what's a reputable site for placing a bet?

Curious about this myself.

Why didn't anyone answer these questions? I would have easily thrown down $50. Coulda, shoulda, woulda....

 

Amazing that this was before MKG got injured in preseason. Interestingly, there was much smaller divergence between HP posters and the national media consensus the previous season. This season was a rare case when fans weren't wearing rose-colored glasses but actually had a better understanding of the team's true situation than the national sports punditry.... Lowe picking us to finish last. SMH. (And I like Lowe.)

Wish I could have helped mate. I was semi-curious about taking this up too, but I have no idea how gambling/betting actually works. I reckon that's a good thing, but it would have been nice to get some free cash.

 

32.5 wins was a hilariously low number.

I took the bet.   I got 36 wins though.  Still felt confident about it.  And you're exactly right about the national media working in our favor here. 

 

If the Hornets can eek out a 3-17 record to finish the season, I win 400 dollars.  Thanks front running big market media types!
