Boston Celtics Betting History

The Boston Celtics, who are usually a very consistent team, had a horrible 2013/14 season finishing 25-57 and failing to qualify for the playoffs for the first time since 2007. They finished 4th in their Division (Atlantic) and 12th in their Conference (Eastern).

Betting on them during this season would have been a mistake seeing as they were only able to beat the spread in 47.56% of their games. The Boston Celtics's usually strong defense was absent this season, letting in lots of points from opponents, so betting on the under option in Over/Under would not have resulted in as much winning action as previous seasons. However they still delivered under results more often than over, 52.4% versus 47.6%

2014/2015 Boston Celtics Schedule

The Boston Celtics regular season schedule begins on October 29 and ends on April 15. Boston begins a lengthy, six-game trek on January 19 in Los Angeles which will end on January 28 in Minnesota. With travel days included, this trip will likely last about 12 days. The NBA has scattered Boston's home and away games so much that the team will never play more than three consecutive games at home, this could do well for ticket sales considering fans won't be inundated with games in a row.

Boston Celtics History

The Boston Celtics are the most successful team in the NBA having won an amazing seventeen NBA Championships. The Celtics completely dominated the NBA in the late 1950s and 60s winning eight NBA Championships in a row from 1959 to 1966 and a total of eleven in thirteen years. The Celtics added another two NBA Championships in the 1970s but struggled towards the end of the decade. The franchise selected Larry Bird in the 1978 Draft Pick and he led them to another highly successful period in the 1980s. The decade was dominated by an intense rivalry with the Los Angeles and the sides met in the NBA Finals on three occasions. Bird led the Celtics to three more NBA Championships in 1981, 1984 and 1986. The Celtics struggled after the retirement of Bird and didn't become regular playoff qualifiers again until the early 2000s. The Celtics returned to their former glory when it combined NBA All-Stars Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett on their roster. 'The Big 3' was able to lead the Celtics to the 2008 NBA Championships and a number of deep playoff runs in recent seasons.

Boston Celtics Star Player: Chris Johnson

After going undrafted in the 2012 NBA draft, Johnson joined the Philadelphia 76ers for the 2012 NBA Summer League. In September 2012, he signed with the Los Angeles Clippers. In November 2013, he was re-acquired by the Rio Grande Valley Vipers. On January 17, 2014, he signed a 10-day contract with the Boston Celtics. On January 21, 2014, he made his Celtics debut, recording 11 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 steal in a 86-93 loss to the Miami Heat. On February 7, 2014, he signed a multi-year deal with the Celtics. The 24 year-old small forward was the NBA D-League champion in 2013, and the All-Star in 2014. The Celtics will be hoping the rising talent can pull them out of their recent funk.

Boston Celtics Star From the Past: Larry Bird

Larry Bird was selected with the sixth overall pick of the 1978 NBA draft by the Boston Celtics. In an amazing fourteen year career at the Celtics, Bird won every accolade in the game and is considered one of the greatest players in NBA history. Bird led the Celtics to thirteen straight playoff appearances, five Eastern Conference Titles and three NBA Championships. He was named an NBA All-Star on twelve occasions, was the 1980 NBA Rookie of the Year and a three time winner of the NBA MVP award. Bird was forced to retire due to persistent back problems in 1992 but has gone on to have great success as a head coach and NBA franchise executive. He is a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame, was named in the NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time Team and is the only person in history to be named Player of the Year, Coach of the Year and Executive of the Year in the NBA.

Boston Celtics Head Coach: Brad Stevens

Brad Stevens took over the head coaching job at the Boston Celtics in 2013 after Doc Rivers was fired. He was previously the head coach at Butler University in Indianapolis from 2007-13 and an assistant before that from 2001-2007. In his first year at Butler, Stevens led the team to 30 wins, becoming the third-youngest head coach in NCAA Division I history to have a 30-win season. In 2010, his third year as head coach, Stevens broke the NCAA record for most wins in a coach's first three years, exceeding the previous record by eight. In his first season with the Celtics, the team finished with a shaky record of 25-57, but based on his performance in college football he will only improve in 2014/15.
