No amount of Eric Lewis can beat the highest total ever, 370 points, with the help of 3 OTs back in 83...

highest i can remember recently (since the nba has changed its style of play) was around 245, give or take. if i remember correctly it was between the warriors and suns, when neither team knew what defense meant

This stuff is crushing my model, since now it predicts that I have to bet 11.34 units on under 

Probably gonna give it a shot anyway for a unit.

The highest O/U was set at 310. 
The game sailed over smoothly, IN regulation time...

Its the biggest line I have seen for years.

As of now, 76% of bets are on the under though... Surprisingly. I do like the over because the Blazers have the best offense efficiency at home, average 111 points per 100 possessions and the 76ers play at a pace of around 103 possessions which means that mathematically, the Blazers should hit around 115. Will the 76ers hit 111 for the over to hit? I personally think that the Blazers will hit close to 130 and the 76ers maybe early 100's. The ATS is a better play because I do think this will be a blowout game and you don't want to have the over for a blowout game. 71% of the public on 76ers ATS right now. My lean is towards the Blazers ATS because the faster a team plays, the better the Blazers play.
