B4 M at 200 TC? Which one?

If a job posting states that the salary range for a position is $65,000-$85,000, and you give a range of $65,000-$70,000 for your expected salary.

Also, if they do end up giving you salary between your stated range, can you propose a counter offer of $75,000? Thank you for any responses, I'm somewhat new to salary negotiations and such.
