Celtics Odds: Futures, Win Totals, Pick For 2021-22 NBA Season


October 19, 2021

The Boston Celtics season opener Wednesday provides a clean state.

… Both for the team and the fans that want to try to make money off them.

Boston’s chances to get out of the Eastern Conference are slim, with the reigning NBA champion Milwaukee Bucks and Brooklyn Nets projected to be the teams to beat on that side of the bracket. And even with all their Ben Simmons drama and dysfunction, oddsmakers think the Philadelphia 76ers will have a better season, too.

But you don’t need the Celtics to miraculously help you cash in on a NBA Finals future to stay in the green this season. Here’s the betting outlook for the Celtics this season, with odds from DraftKings Sportsbook, to help you find some more realistic angles to profit from.

NBA Finals Champion
Celtics +4000

Eastern Conference Champion
Celtics +1800

Pick: Celtics win UNDER 46.5 games (-105)
It’s really close, but we’re skeptical that under a new head coach, a cast of role player upgrades around Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart and Robert Williams is enough to get Boston over the 46-win threshold with a moderately difficult schedule. Their resolve will be tested all year, but our intuition says the Under.
