NBA win total projections: Las Vegas sportsbook releases over-unders for every team's number of wins

The past month or so in the NBA world has been all about summer league and free agency. But now that we're nearing the middle of August, it's almost time to start flip the switch from offseason mode and start looking ahead to the new season. Nothing marks that change better than the first time that win total over/unders are released. 

This year it was the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook who had the honor of being the first Vegas sports book to put out their projections. Of course this is a very early look, and things can, and will change before the season gets underway in October. Still, it's an interesting look at where Vegas sees every team now that rosters are pretty much finalized.
