Boston Celtics Under 44.5 Wins @ +100 / 2.00 Betonline

Boston will have tough competition inside their own division with Toronto, Philadelphia and especially Brooklyn. If you take a look at the regular season lines, you’ll see that these four teams are projected to be in the top 10 this season and that it’ll be hard for one team to dominate the division.

In normal conditions, Boston won’t have great depth on their roster so they’ll be top heavy in their rotation. If we add the risk factor of Covid and the fact that Kemba Walker is currently injured, Boston will only have Tatum and Brown as major offensive weapons, so both will need to perform at All NBA level on a daily basis, something I doubt they’ll be able to do.

Boston lost Hayward in the offseason, but they added Tristan Thompson to give depth to their frontcourt. Even though he was often injured, when he was healthy, Hayward used to give Boston a big boost on the perimeter, alternating with Kemba Walker, Tatum and Brown as the focal point on offense. On the other hand, Thompson will always play at the Center position and we’ll never see Thompson and Theis together on the frontcourt, something that will limit Boston’s versatility on this limited roster.
