As expected, the Brooklyn Nets advanced from the play-in game beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 115-108. It wasn't a surprise to see the Nets advance but now they will be taking on the Boston Celtics who are the number two seed in the Eastern Conference.

Last year, the Celtics got knocked out by the Nets in the first round but this year oddsmakers and bettors alike have a different feel. Let's take a look at the Boston Celtics vs Brooklyn Nets odds.

Boston Celtics vs Brooklyn Nets Odds

BetOddsBets%Handle%
Celtics to win the Series-13096%98%
Nets to win the Series+1104%2%

It's not surprising to see the Boston Celtics as the favorite here. Their -130 odds imply a 56.52% chance of beating the Nets and advancing to the next round. What is shocking is the percentage of bets and handle are on Boston to get the job done in round one.

96% of the tickets are on the Celtics to win and 98% of the money is on them as well. This isn't some roll-over team they are playing, yes the Nets have massively underachieved this year but they still have two stars in Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

The irony here is when you look at the Celtics NBA Championship odds and the Brooklyn Nets Championship odds, the Nets have a significantly better chance of winning it all. The Nets are +700 which is a 12.5% chance while Boston is +1100 which is just a 8.33% chance of winning it all.

The Celtics and Nets have played four times during the regular season. The Nets just won one of those games and that win came in November, which is a completely different Nets team with James Harden playing. There will be no James Harden for the Nets but will Kyrie Irving be enough to get over the hump? Both the oddsmakers and bettors don't believe so.
