Sportsbook.com NBA Basketball Betting Odds – Boston Celtics Odds To Win NBA Title – 4/1
Over/under regular season wins Odds: 57.5 (-115)
One for all and all for one in Beantown. .
Key players added – Rasheed Wallace, Marquis Daniels
Key players lost – None
There are some minor problems to deal with –– is Kevin Garnett’s knee fully healed, how long will it take Rasheed Wallace to learn the defensive rotations, will Rajon Rondo’s obsession on obtaining a max contract extension affect his play on the court, will the roster’s overall age be a concern after 8 exhibitions, 82 regular season games and who knows how many playoff games?
But this team has enough depth to survive just about anything short of a rogue wave hitting Boston Harbor. Their second unit of Wallace, Marquis Daniels, Eddie House, Glenn Davis and (fill in the blank) is as good as 8 or 10 starting fives in the league.
The presence of Wallace and Daniels will allow Doc Rivers to prevent Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Garnett from playing huge minutes.
Wallace figures to be especially valuable when Kendrick Perkins gets into foul trouble, which occurs about three times a week.
And try to figure out a way to double-team Garnett with Wallace, Allen, House and Piece all spotted up at the 3-point line.
Surprising stat: The Celts got off to a 27-2 start last season.
Strengths: Inside, outside, all around. They have talent, experience and a veteran coach who the players trust.
Weaknesses: No pure PG if Rondo goes down, though Daniels and House can get the job done against opponents who don’t pressure the ball.
Playoffs? Looks like another deep run. With the top seed in East, Celts would have to play either Magic or Cavs, but not both.
