Las Vegas has officially released its NBA over/under numbers for each team this season, and some of them are laughable.
While many people are surprised that the Lakers are just 13.5 games better
The Boston Celtics have an over/under of 57.5 for their win total.
Vegas has set the Celtics' over/under at 57.5 What are you taking? https://t.co/p2l0eIxYrJ— 98.5 The Sports Hub (@985TheSportsHub) August 6, 2018
How is that even possible?
Yes, there are many other teams that made big moves, but many people are forgetting that the Celtics didn't have to make big moves. They were one win away from the NBA Finals last season and that was without some of their best players. Boston will hopefully have two All-Stars returning to full health in Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward.
Is that not enough for you, NBA?

If it isn't, don't worry. We have more.
The Celtics also have the luxury of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown with another year of experience under their belts as they've proven to be two of the most exciting young players in the game. The cherry on top of it all is the fact that LeBron James is out of their conference.
Putting all of that together, how is that only worth two and a half more wins than this team had a year ago?
Don't question it at all, because there's no good answer. Just hammer the over and enjoy your winnings.
