2017-2018 NBA Previews – Nets Odds
Looking for 2017 Brooklyn Nets Predictions? We’ve got your back. The Brooklyn Nets finished last year with a 21-61 record, and that wasn’t a surprise to anyone. If anything most people believed that they would have lost more games. Coming into this season, not many people expect them to win many more games then they did last year, but they are a young team and should if nothing else be at least fun to watch.

This year for the Nets is all about figuring out who is going to be the core pieces going forward in their rebuild and what guys they can build their team around.
Expect this team to make mistakes because they are young, but they could get hot on any night and upset teams that many people expected them to beat.
Brooklyn Nets Strengths:
The Brooklyn Nets strengths might be few and far between, but their biggest strength has to start with this teams back court.
The Nets traded for D’Angelo Russell in the off season and I would expect him to be super motivated. Magic Johnson basically said he didn’t have a place with the Lakers and shipped him off.
He is also the new face of the franchise for this team and I would expect him to really try to hold up that end of the bargain.
Last year he played 63 games and finished with 15.6 points, 4.8 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game. I would expect those numbers to increase this year.
But it’s not just Russell who makes up the back court. Jeremy Lin dealt with a lot of injuries last year but when he was healthy he played really well.
In 36 games he put up 14.5 points and 5.1 assists. He cut down on the turnovers and if he can stay healthy I expect a big year out of him.
Youth can be a strength and a weakness for a lot of teams but for the Nets this year, I think it can really turn out to be a huge strength.
There are some players who wouldn’t make a lot of other NBA teams so they have a lot to play for, not just this year, but trying to get new contracts after the season.
I would expect that will make them extra motivated and you will see a lot of hustle out of this team. Fundamentally they might not be the best, but the effort is going to be there night in and night out.
Brooklyn Nets Weaknesses:
For the Nets the Weaknesses start with the talent on this team. Like I said above they have a lot of guys who wouldn’t be on other teams rosters, and in terms of talent this team might have the least of it in all of basketball.
They will probably be the underdogs in most games this year. So if they don’t have the talent they are going to need to find other ways to win the games, like hustle.
The only problem with that though is a lot of times hustle alone isn’t enough to win games. The other big problem for this team is they really don’t have a front court.
They traded away Lopez, the only guy that was really worth anything in the front court. They are going to need to get some sort of production out of the front court to have any type of success in this season.
Brooklyn Nets Betting Prediction: 47-35
Vegas has set the over/under at 28.5 for this team which would be quite the step up from the 21 wins they had last season.
I really do believe they will be right around that 28-30 wins this season just because of how bad the Eastern Conference is.
The talent is a lot less in the Eastern Conference so they should find a way to pull out a couple of more games in the conference.
This team won’t be making the playoffs, but that isn’t the goal for this team. For this team it’s all about improving the young guys, which I think this team will be able to do.
