I am not a gambler. Why? Because I don't like winning money as much as I hate losing money. And well my luck of the irish doesn't exist. But looking at the line for the game tonight makes me think, wow Vegas is really just begging you to bet on the Celtics.
Up 2-0 and undefeated thus far this season against the Lakers they are getting Salmost double digits? I understand favoring the Lakers and thinking that they are going to bounce back at home and avoid going 0 for the series, but what exactly is the logic backing a beat down. They were getting crushed for 40 minutes on Sunday night before the Celtics put it in cruise control and the Lakers fought back. They've killed them on the boards and are obviously the more physical team and in my opinion simply a better team. I just don't get it.
So, if I was a Gambler I think I'd have to take up Vegas' begging offer to take the Celtics. But of course if I bet on the Celtics they would go out and lose by 15.
