2023 NBA Win Totals Tracker
As we enter the preseason, the NBA win totals market is starting to take shape, with a cluster of elite teams at the top between 50 and 54 wins.
The Suns, Bucks and Clippers are all next at 52.5, followed by the Warriors, Nets and 76ers -- the only teams above 50 wins. They're followed by another crop of breakout hopefuls like the T'Wolves, Mavs and Cavs, among others.
The Lakers dropped one win since their opener, while the T'Wolves are on the verge of adding a win to their total as the juice shifts toward the over. The Spurs bring up the rear at 22.5 wins after trading Dejounte Murray to the Hawks.

Who Has the Highest NBA Win Total for 2023?
1. Celtics: 53.5
The defending Eastern Conference champions will have an easier road to 56 wins if Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving leave the conference.
2. Clippers: 52.5
Paul George did all he could on his own last season and L.A. is expected to get Kawhi Leonard back. The Clippers won 42 games last season to qualify for the NBA play-in round.
3. Suns: 52.5
The Suns won eight more games than any other team last year with 64 victories. They were hoping to acquire Kevin Durant, which would boost this win total even more, but that now seems unlikely.
4. Bucks: 52.5
Even in what felt like a bit of an off year, the Bucks won 51 games, tied for second most in the Eastern Conference behind the Heat. They're an NBA title favorite once again, the second betting choice among Eastern Conference teams behind the Celtics.
5. Warriors: 51.5
The defending NBA champs won 53 games in the 2021-2022 regular season but rolled through the playoffs, losing just six total games en route to a fourth championship in seven years.
