Bovada released a bunch of interesting stat line props for the 2014-2015 season on Thursday. Here’s a look at the best. 

Will score 50 points in one game during the 2014-2015 Regular Season?

Yes +1000 (10/1)

No -2000 (1/20)

Oh, this looks like easy pickings! It’s the Black Mamba! Vino! The Greater Laker! I mean, come on, Bryant dropped 50 super recently, right?

Yeah, it’s been five years since the Mamba put up half-a-hunny. But then again, . So there are points to be made on both sides. 

The case for: He’s going to have as many shots as he wants and Byron Scott will never take him out or tell him to stop shooting; he scored 47 just a year and a half ago; he’s super-pissed about the ESPN criticism. 

The case against: Two severe leg injuries, the defense will be primed on him, he’s 36, and players just don’t score over 50 anymore. Only six guys have done . 

The verdict: It’s 10-to-1 that one of the greatest scorers of all time in a really pissed off state on a bad team with no other great options will hit it. You can talk yourself into this one pretty easily. 

Will get traded during the 2014-2015 Season?

Yes -175 (7/4)

No +125 (5/4)

The case for: The have struck out on big free agents and the trade. That second superstar just isn’t coming. If they’re really going to rebuild, they’re not going to do it with Rondo, and they’re not going to do in a contract year. There have been strong suitors for him for years, including Houston and Sacramento. 

The case against: Danny Ainge will let him go when his body is cold in the ground. Dude just won’t give up the ghost. 

The verdict: Never Trust Ainge. 

Will get traded during the 2014-2015 Season?

Yes EVEN (1/1)

No -140 (5/7)

The case for: Um, well, he’s been disastrously bad and he costs a lot of money. 

The case against: SVG is going to want time to figure out what he has, moving him is difficult. 

The verdict: Nah, let’s stay away from this one, your return on investment isn’t great here. 

Will any Player Average 30 minutes per game or more during the 2014-2015 Regular Season?Yes -200 (1/2)No +150 (3/2)

The case for: Hahahahahahah. 

The case against: “LOL,” as the kids say.

The verdict: I have no idea about this, it’s possible with . I just find it hilarious this is something you can bet on. 

Will the be sold during the 2014-2015 Regular Season?

Yes +400 (4/1)

No -600 (1/6)

Well, this is officially a thing now. There have been rumors for the past year that Mikhail Prokhorov was ready to bail. The fact that there’s an actual line on it seems notable. 

The case for: They according to Grantland, and let’s just say the . 

The case against: Prokhorov has billions and billions and billions of dollars and can take his time, plus the new media deal is going to jack up the price significantly more, likely even beyond projections.

Will play in NBA game in the 2015-2016 Season?

Yes +125 (5/4)

No -175 (4/7)

Well, now I’m just sad.

Let’s move on. 

Will Andrew Wiggin win the 2015 Slam Dunk Contest?

Yes +600 (6/1)

No -1000 (1/6)

The case for: Andrew Wiggins is awesome, can nearly glide from halfcourt, and has name recognition through the roof. 

The case against: There may not be a slam dunk contest since previous versions have nearly killed it. 

The verdict: At +600 I love this one. That’s pretty great return on value. 

Bovada also released a complete list of stats over/unders. Some highlights: 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Points – Over/Under 18

Horford has averaged 18 points per game or more in one season. It was last year’s. When he played in just 29 games. I don’t know what that says. Pass. 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Points –

Over/Under 15½

He’s averaged over 15.5 twice in his career, including last year, in which he played in all 82 games. But the Celtics have a better roster this year, and more depth, and Green could very well be traded and lose the starting spot. I like the under. 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Rebounds –

Over/Under 9

Run screaming to take the over on this. Sullinger is going to play heavy minutes, the Celtics have no bigs, they may trade , and Sullinger is a monster rebounder. Over, over, over. 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Points –

Over/Under 17

Williams has averaged less than 17 points per game when he played over 12 games in a season just once since his sophomore season. It was last year. But the Nets have no depth. But Williams was not good last year. But…

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Points –

Over/Under 22

I like the over. I think this is going to be a monster year for Jefferson. There will be better spacing which will open up things for Big Al. And the will play in more meaningful games which means more overtime and more minutes. 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Assists – Over/Under 4½

Come on the over train… and ride it. Woo-woo! 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Pointsaitland-Niles up in northeast London and progressed through the club’s youth ranks to represent the first team in the Premier League and Europe. “Growing up in London, there’s a lot of peer pressure out there and you can get swayed by the wrong peopl –

Over/Under 15½

The play slow, they have a lot of weapons, and Gasol’s not 31 anymore. I like the under. 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Points –

Over/Under 26½

The Cavs are going to score all the points. Even if James misses time for rest and injury, his scoring total should remain high. It’s not a lock… but it’s close. 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Rebounds – LeBron James

Over/Under 6½

Stay away. James has a league of great rebounders beside him now, and yet, he just tracks down caroms like a heat-seeking missile. 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Points –

Over/Under 20

I mean… he’s sharing shots with LeBron, Kevin Love, , maybe , Anderson Varejao, and Shawn Marion. If Irving’s averaging 20, the Cavs could be in trouble. 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Assists – Kyrie Irving Over/Under 6

Irving has been criticized as a playmaker, but he has great vision and excellent touch on his passes. The over here seems pretty safe. 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Points –

Over/Under 17½

That’s a lot of points. You might consider teasing this and Ellis’ under (19). 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Points –

Over/Under 17½

Lawson has better teammates to spread shots to, but he’s also set to have a monster season with the defense unable to focus on him, if he stays healthy. He’ll have more energy on offense with the defensive help, and a firmer grasp of the offense. 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Points –

Over/Under 13

Again, COME ON THE OVER TRAIN… AND RIDE IT. 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Points –

Over/Under 15

He may not start. He’s not part of the team’s long term plans. Bail on this. 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Points –

Over/Under 23½

COME ON THE… oh, you know. 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Points –

Over/Under 19

Howard looks healthy, motivated, and the should have better spacing this year with and the bigs they picked up. Gotta like this over 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Points –

Over/Under 13

Aw, now I’m just sad again. 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Assists –

Over/Under 10

Too tight. He went over last year, under the three years prior to that. Depends on his health, which is just too inconsistent. will also be in a lot of blowouts this year and won’t need him for the fourth. 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Points – Kobe Bryant

Over/Under 23

I think the under is the play here. I really do. It’s probably a stay-away but they have to mange his minutes to some degree. 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Points – Jabari Parker

Over/Under 18½

I want to pull out the Quad City DJ’s again here, but I’ve also been playing with the on 2k15 all week. I’m a little bit high on Jabari Parker at this point. 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Points –

Over/Under 22½

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Blocks Per Game – Anthony Davis

Over/Under 2.7

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Rebounds – Anthony Davis

THERE WE GO! 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Assists –

Over/Under 6

Tough one here, but I think the over is the play. He’s got worse weapons, but more comfort in the offense. And with more run-and-gun guys, they could play even faster. I lean towards the over but it’s awfully close. 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Points –

Over/Under 23

Cousins has evolved into a Godzilla-type monster, and that team has no one else. Hammer the over. 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Points –

Over/Under 17

Lowry’s in his prime, and I think he takes a bigger chunk of his offense. Another over play. 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Rebounds –

Over/Under 9

Valanciunas is set for a monster season. Could see being traded which would boost his boards as well. 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Points –

Over/Under 16½

Bounceback season plus better coach plus better teammates = [cash register noise]. 

2014-2015 Regular Season – Total Points –

Over/Under 18

Little high for a guy who takes way too many long twos. Play the under here.
