If you enjoy gambling on NBA games and who might win the title you would probably bet on teams like the Golden State Warriors, Cleveland Cavaliers, San Antonio Spurs, Boston Celtics or Los Angeles Clippers this year to win. While those five teams have been given the best chances to win the title and have the highest over/under numbers for games won this year, they are not the teams that have been bet on the most.

Here are the over/under benchmarks for regular-season wins for each NBA team for the 2016-17 season, as determined by the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas:
Golden St. 66.5 Minnesota 41.5
Cleveland 56.5 Charlotte 39.5
San Antonio 56.5 Dallas 39.5
LA Clippers 53.5 Milwaukee 39.5
Boston 51.5 Chicago 38.5
Toronto 49.5 New York 38.5
Utah 47.5 Miami 36.5
Portland 46.5 New Orleans 36.5
Detroit 45.5 Orlando 36.5
Okla. City 45.5 Denver 34.5
Atlanta 43.5 Sacramento 32.5
Indiana 43.5 Philadelphia 27.5
Memphis 43.5 Phoenix 26.5
Washington 42.5 LA Lakers 24.5
Houston 41.5 Brooklyn 20.5

As you can see, the New York Knicks are supposed to win around 38 games and frankly, that won’t be enough to get them into the playoffs if the rest of these numbers play out accordingly. Therefore, they couldn’t even compete for an NBA title, but that hasn’t stopped people on places the most bets on them to win at 80-1 odds.
