Tuesday afternoon the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook released its win totals odds, with the reigning Western Conference champion Golden State Warriors leading the way. One year after winning an NBA record 73 regular season games, the Warriors revamped their rotation with the additions of Kevin Durant and Zaza Pachulia during free agency. Steve Kerr’s team led Cleveland three games to one in the NBA Finals back in June, only to see LeBron James and company storm back to win the title in seven games.

Speaking of Cleveland, their number of 56.5 wins is second-most with San Antonio receiving the same number. While the triumvirate of James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love will once again lead the way for Cleveland, the Spurs will play a season without Tim Duncan (who retired) for the first time since 1996-97. LaMarcus Aldridge, Kawhi Leonard, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili all return, and the team signed Pau Gasol during the offseason to help account for the loss of Duncan.

A total of four teams have win total odds exceeding 50 wins, the Clippers (53.5 wins) and Celtics (51.5), with reigning Atlantic Division champion Toronto just missing out at 49.5 wins. Boston added former Atlanta forward/center Al Horford to their rotation, and his arrival is viewed by many as one that should help Brad Stevens’ team take the next step and advance in the playoffs after losing in the first round in each of his first two seasons at the helm.

The SuperBook projects the Northwest Division to be the most competitive based upon their win totals, with Utah (47.5 wins), Portland (46.5) and Oklahoma City (45.5) separated by a total of two wins and Minnesota not far off at 41.5 wins.

The leading win totals in each division are as follows:

Atlantic: Boston (51.5 wins)
Central: Cleveland (56.5)
Southeast: Atlanta (43.5)
Southwest: San Antonio (56.5)
Northwest: Utah (47.5)
Pacific: Golden State (66.5)
