The NBA regular season tips off in less than a month. Here are those numbers for all 30 NBA teams as well as last year’s totals and results, a trio of Under NBA picks will be given out.

Introduction
The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook unveiled its 2015-16 Regular Season Team Win Totals on Tuesday here in Las Vegas for all 30 of the league’s teams, and most of the numbers aren’t too surprising, although the New York Knicks (31.5) does seem to be a little high after the Eastern Conference team finished with just 17 wins overall (17-65) last NBA Regular Season and continues to stake its future in Carmelo Anthony.

The highest Total on the Futures Book according to NBA odds comes from the defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors at 60.5, while the lowest Total belongs to the Philadelphia 76ers at 21.5. News of an injury to the Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose also cropped up on Tuesday, after the 26-year-old Point Guard took an elbow to the face during practice. On Wednesday, Rose underwent surgery to repair the left orbital fracture, and new Bulls Head Coach Fred Hoiberg said there was no structural damage and that Rose is expected to be back for Chicago (49.5 Regular Season Team Total Wins, Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook) in the next 2 weeks.

Here are the opening Regular Season Team Win Totals, updated NBA Championship odds as well as last season’s (2014-15) numbers from the SuperBook with NBA team’s final records and whether or not they ended up going Over or Under their posted Totals.

And the Spurs won their 11 straight games heading into the Regular Season finale in New Orleans against the Pelicans, where Antonio Davis and the hosts put an end to the San Antonio win streak with a 108-103 win, and Spurs Season Team Win Total Over bettors saw their bet go down to the 4th Quarter of the final game, losing by ½ (0.5) a game.
