Every year Las Vegas sets the bar on how many wins it projects each team to hit and bettors can then put down money on the over or under. This year, Celtics fans will be pretty happy with what Vegas expects the Celtics to reach:
Celtics have 5th highest over/under win total in NBA at @LVSuperBook with 51.5. Only Warriors, Cavs, Spurs and Clippers ahead of them.— Brian Robb (@CelticsHub) September 20, 2016
Boston is a projected two wins over the Toronto Raptors at 49.5, and the next Eastern conference team? The Detroit Pistons at 45.5. You can find the full list in this ESPN article. But the Celtics odds are only half the exciting news in the projections:
Nets have lowest over/under win total in NBA with 20.5 at @LVSuperBook. Next closest team? Lakers at 24.5. #netspick— Brian Robb (@CelticsHub) September 20, 2016
Now the question is where you should bet. Seeing the Celtics winning 52 or more games seems pretty crazy, but what real C's fan wants to bet on the under?
