Another Las Vegas oddsmaker is not high on the Hawks this season.

Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook lists the Hawks’ win total at 25.5 for the 2017-18 season. Only the Bulls have a lower total at 21.5. The oddsmaker lists the Nets (28.5), Knicks (30.5), Magic (33.5), 76ers (42.5) and Heat (43.5) with higher win totals than the Hawks.

The projected did not sit well with at least one member of the Hawks. Guard Malcolm Delaney tweeted the following:

The Warriors have, by a considerable margin, the highest projected win total of 67.5. The Celtics have the next-highest total at 56.5.
