    boston celtics to win eastern conference +350 to win nba finals +1500. felony

    These are ridiculous odds for a team that has the best closer in the conference....were in 2 straight ECF......

    Not to mention they were odds on favorites -110 to win east before the season.

    Have fun dealing with this talent in a 7 game series.

    They were coming into the All Star Break potential winners of 14 of 15 (lose 2 twenty point leads to inferior teams) and could have won warrior game.

    but rather than analyze game to game....we all know they are the best team in the ECF and they will elevate their game come playoff time.

    I mean come on. Bucks couldn't beat them without Kyrie and Hayward. and Middleton had the BEST shooting 7 game series in history of basketball.

    No shot to beat the warriors in finals. East is definitely possible. Although counting on Kyrie to be healthy is a coin flip. They wonít have the best player on the court in any of those 3 potential series in the playoffs. All 3 of those teams made deadline deals as well. I like their odds but definitely would take the field in the east.

    You guys are wacked if you truly think they are better without irving.

    but commentary like that will bring them to the finals.

    Kawhi is only player better than Kyrie. Giannis cant close a game like Kyrie

    But are we truly sold on this raptors team?

    Not true at all. Maybe day to day regular season but in the playoffs they are not better without Irving. That was proven. Irving is the only guy on the Celts that can create his own shot against elite defenders in a playoff series at the end of games. The young guys like Tatum havenít developed that yet

    Bucks are the Celtics of last season. theyre gonna lose in the semi's or ECF if they get that far.

    Celtics are a good play. they dont look as hot as Raptors or Bucks right now.. but theyre gonna pick it up come playoff tine. they got a coaching advantage with Brad Stevens

    I like it. Was thinking about making the same play after Toronto and philly made trades cause I knew the odds were going to get better.

    I actually like them to win the east.. every time they play Philly, Embid can't do shit on Al Horford which is hilarious. when the chips are on the line, Jimmy Butler won't show up (will not even flinch when pointing the finger though)

    +350 is a bad price, the Celtics be close to even money against Toronto if they meet them, you're better off betting Boston to win individual series.

    Here's my thing as a Celtics fan...

    Right now, can Celtics win in Toronto in a playoff series? Right now i dont think so.

    But i hope that changes...

    last year we saw Celtics way better without Irving

    He dominates ball too much and not a formula to win in NBA unless your Jordan and 6-6
