Celtics 25-1 odds to win 2013 title

Chuck - Red's Army June 22, 2012 Around the NBA, Celtics News 18 Comments

Here are the odds to win 2013 NBA Championship, according to Bovada: 

Miami Heat                                  11/4

Oklahoma City Thunder          5/1

Chicago Bulls                               6/1

Los Angeles Lakers                   10/1

San Antonio Spurs                     10/1

Dallas Mavericks                        14/1

Los Angeles Clippers                 18/1

Indiana Pacers                           20/1

Boston Celtics                           25/1

Memphis Grizzlies                     25/1

What a joke. The Celtics – the only team to really push the Heat to the brink in the playoffs – are 25-1?

They sit behind Dallas, Clippers, Pacers and Lakers. Really?

Maybe those odds change once KG announces he’s re-signing.

    I’ll take those odds.

    How are the Lakers 10-1 to win it all? Did Bovada not notice all the infighting going on in that organization? And the Mavericks just got swept in the first round with a healthy roster! We went to Game 7 against the champions with 7 players either out or injured.

    I tellya, Celtics get no respect. No respect.

      actually I like it. It just keeps the noise away still we got hounded by rondo trade rumors last season.

  • Xavier

    Wow people just don’t like the Celtics

  • Jordonn

    How does that even make sense ? More importantly how are the Lakers higher than us ? That makes no sense at all.

  • Celticsfanatic

    No surprise. People don’t like the Celtics. No worries even with just a healthy squad, some solid drafting and some restructuring of the bench we could very easily be playing at this time next year. And there’s no doubt in my mind that Danny Ainge has the potential to put together an offseason this year with all things considered (this year’s run, cap space, picks, trading assets) that might even make us favorites.

    The guys who lay these odds aren’t “hating on the C’s” or anything like that, they’re making a estimate on what the C’s have the day the season ends. It’s not personal. The odds will certainly change as the C’s put a roster together, but this would be a good time for any gambling degenerates to lay some money down.

      yeah, that’s probably true. But Dallas still has less than what we have. They haven’t signed Deron Williams yet.

  • Jon

    Okay, this may be a dumb question…but how are these odds even figured out? How are team chemistry, brotherhood, etc quantified? I love stats and I think they do tell a lot about a team/player (maybe not the entire picture, but a lot) but I just don’t understand how these bold predictions have odds and ratios, isn’t it more or less just a guess?

  • RedsLoveChild

    It`s far too early to start forecasting next year.

    That said, putting the Celtics at the same level as MEM or IND seems well within reason.

  • colaroaster

    free agency, the draft, and w/ever other personnel changes.. obviously a lot can happen between now and next years finals. for the degenerate gambler those are good numbers to roll.

  • kricky

    This isn’t really surprising considering that we only have 4 players signed to come back.

    I’m sure we’ll go past the Lakers if we start bringing our guys back. Funny how this is always the critical measuring stick with Celtics fans. LOL

  • GarnettsGrl

    I get so sick of people assuming this or that about any team. Just like they said we were too old washed up among other things, then as usual they had to tuck their tails between their legs and eat crow. Like Matt W said I’ll take my chances!!!!!!!

  • Wil Reyes

    We the underdogs, But if KG resigns, expect to have a better chance than OKC!

  • Eric

    Don’t care what the odds are, Danny will find another way and shot at it next year. Let’s go!

  • Coach AJ

    Let those odds stay so I can bet on em, I think I will put $100 down. lol

  • Marc

    How can the Clippers have better odds than us? What the hell?

    This stupid, how are you going to make these predictions when, draft night has not come yet, trades has not been done yet, free agencie has not been done yet. Nobody even know how the teams are going to look when training camp begins. I guess since the season is over there is not much to talk about.
