I rather obnoxiously proclaimed that the Rockets would only win 35 games last year. I was right and wrong... the Rockets overachieved and won 42 games, but they still missed the playoffs and any "Pythagorean" statistical analysis showed the Rockets should have won about 35-37 games.
This year? This year is different. I have the Rockets winning 52 games (at least). Vegas, however, has them only winning 48.5 as the line... and I put my money where my mouth is. I took the OVER. For realz.
