How To Bet On Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtics are one of the NBA’s fastest-rising teams, and as such, are becoming increasingly popular in the betting sphere. This makes it all the more important that you understand how good they are, because they’re hot betting property. The first thing you need to know? Their rise is legitimate, even though they don’t have a patented superstar. Isaiah Thomas is an All-Star but seldom gets recognized as the normal run-of-the-mill superstar. [+]

The Celtics’ success-by-committe model works. It doesn’t matter which team they’re playing. During regular season play, they are always a threat to win. To wit: They join the Golden State Warriors as the only teams to rank inside the top 10 of pace, offensive efficency and defensive efficiency. That doesn’t mean they’re as good as the Warriors, but it does mean that they’re one of the league’s most balanced teams. And in today’s NBA, balance wins games.

It also wins the most informed bettors money.

Boston Celtics Standings

Never, ever neglect to look at where the Celtics stand in the East. The Eastern Conference is clunky, with a bunch of teams jostling for the same few middling positions. [+]

Shrewd bettors are always on the lookout for contingents that are pulling away from the pack. The Cleveland Cavaliers typically own this discussion, but there are always one or two or three other outfits that meander into the East’s uber-exclusive upper echelon.

Right now, the Celtics are one of those teams. And knowing this, you can understand why they should be the favorites against most of their opponents. No rival team should be deemed to scary on any given night in the regular season, not even the Cavaliers themselves.

But the Celtics, prior to the All-Star break, also vacillated up-and-down the Eastern Conference ladder. See where we’re going with this? Even good teams’ stocks rise and fall regularly. Returning to view the standings guarantees you’ll stay in the know—and knowledge is, in the betting world, the ultimate power!

Celtics Aren’t Going Anywhere

Do yourself a favor and resist the urge to view the Celtics as a one-hit wonder. They are not the 2013-14 Phoenix Suns, nor are they the 2014-15 Milwaukee Bucks. They are for real. And they aren’t going anywhere.

Head coach Brad Stevens is a genius, and team president Danny Ainge is chasing down the right players. The Celtics are built around rangy wings like Avery Bradley, Jae Crowder, Evan Turner and stretchy bigs like Kelly Olynyk and Jared Sullinger. And then they have a pair of specialists at point guard: Thomas for offense, and Marcus Smart for defense.

This is already a scary team, one that’s young enough to grow from within, thus making the Celtics scarier, and one that will appeal to free agents.

Which brings us to our next point: free agency. The Celtics are going to have cap space in each of the next two summers, so they are going to improve the roster. They could land a star or two or just a bunch of high impact players. Ainge still has enough assets to pull off a blockbuster trade or two as well, so they’ll improve through that avenue. And finally, the Celtics own a ton of first-round picks, including the Brooklyn Nets’ in 2016, 2017 (right to swap) and 2018. So they are going to improve from every angle imaginable.

Keep this at the forefront of your mind when placing future bets. Offseason win predictions are probably conservative, so give special consideration to the over. And if you’re looking for fringe conference and championship contenders on which to place money, either before or during the season, the Celtics are solid investments in that area, too.
