The concept here is simple. Either you're picking a team to win more than Las Vegas bookmakers have projected or under the magical total the wizards in the desert have appointed all 30 NBA squads after a monumental off-season. 

There are some really tough numbers out there that will make you make you think twice about which side to take. Then there are numbers ripe for exploitation. We have opinions—often strong ones—about who is winning more or less than their number. We could write a bunch more filler, but instead of wasting your time we'd rather just offer up our selections with the NBA season officially kicking off Tuesday. Choose wisely and announce your locks accordingly.
