What does everything think the line for the series will be?

I'm guessing Celtics will be around -650 and Knicks +400. I'd take the Knicks at those odds.

Knicks +280, Dics -450

I'll be taking the Knicks in either scenario.

+280 seems a little low. I think the Knicks have a decent shot at pulling an upset, but I think most people tend to view the Celtics as pretty big favorites in this series.

Ya, idk. Many ppl also see Melo now and prolly over rate us, or are instinctively bullish and think the upset.

Be interesting to see the lines...

The real odds will not be announced by Los Vegas or any bookey.
In 2007-8 Boston went all 7 games vs Atlanta Hawks, but beat Lakers
in 6 games in the FINALS.

The Boston Celtics are the only team that can turn-up or turn-down
the volume of their team performance in a postseason series.
Boston has had the highest ratings of every series since the 2007-8
postseason.
Lastseason first-round series of the "Lakers vs OKC" had a higher rating
than the Boston vs Heat series. Other than that series Boston been
making that paper $$$ entertaining at a high rate the last 3 years in
the postseason.

Those numbers make no sense to me. I don't gamble. Someone explain!

Celts -650 and Knicks +400??

Thegreek.com had it up earlier at +300 for the Knicks, -500 for the Celtics. It means that if you bet 100 on the Knicks, you win 300 (total payout of 400). If you bet 500 on the Celtics, you win 100 (total payout of 600).

I think that's a little too optimistic for the Knicks, I expected them to be closer to +400, and possibly even up to +500.
