Vegas puts over/under on C’s wins at 38.5

The folks at Bovada (formerly BoDog) have put out some new odds for the upcoming season.  Right now they've got the over/under at 38.5.  Here's how they've got the Atlantic division:

  1. New York:  41.5
  2. Boston:  38.5
  3. Philadelphia: 36.5
  4. New Jersey Nets: 21.5
  5. Toronto: 16.5

So these oddsmakers have the Celtics behind the Knicks and barely ahed of Philly.  I'm sorry, but I don't see it that way.  I think the Knicks are overrated.  I don't think they can go 42-24.

I can see the Celtics at 40-26 or 39-27.  That'd be a 50-win season normally, so that fits. 

By the way, the O/U on Miami is 50.5.  OKC is second at 48.5.  Chicaco is third at 47.5

After the jump, the over/unders on Celtics individual averages

  • The Nets got Mehmet Okur for a 2nd round pick..

  • nets also sent a trade exception, which hurts their chances getting dwight and resigning dwill.. flip side thats good news to the other atlantic teams

  • Old, fragile, finesse teams scare nobody!
    Celtics will be 7th seed in EC playoffs.

  • Lex

    stay healthy
    make a couple more moves
    And the current roster plays crazy good
    Then 38 wins
    BUT …
    Won’t stay healthy
    moves won’t make that much of a diff
    and current roster is, well, not gonna play crazy good
    Let’s say 28-33, and 33 is being optimistic

  • You guys are out of your collective effin minds if you think this is a .500 team. In a lot of ways, this year’s team is superior to last year’s. Our bench is deeper, more athletic and mature than last year. Yes, the core is a year older but the defense, rebounding and shooting is better as a whole. JO right now is a better player than Perkins. KG looks good, Ray is still Ray. PP may be slowed down a bit but MD is better than ever. PP should be more effective in reduced minutes with MD, Sasha and hopefully Pietrus on the team. Rondo is better this year. Bass and Wilcox are the Bruise Brothers we always lacked. I’m still not sold on Dooling, but hey, Doc loves him. E’twan appears completely ready to fill productive minutes whenever asked. The bench is rounded out by the DPOY and POY in the Big 10, DPOY in the NBDA and finally a 21 year old who may be the best on-ball defender in the game.
    I see the Cs as a top 3 team in the east.
    41 wins AT LEAST.
