We’re going to keep this one short. It’s Friday, after all.

On to the weekend, with hopefully less snow, storms, floods, and, therefore, much more fun.

C’mon, Spring!

It is eternal, correct?

Sorry. Drifted there.

Let’s get back to the NBA playoff possibilities for the Eastern Conference.

I’ve been over how I think the Western Conference is going to go, so let’s move to the East.

The betting odds I’m about to use are courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook, one of our favorite betting sites out there.

2023 NBA Eastern Conference Winner

Milwaukee Bucks +125

Boston Celtics +165

Philadelphia 76ers +480

Cleveland Cavaliers +1600

Miami Heat +4200

New York Knicks +4200

As you can see, it’s clearly down to two teams … unless you believe the Sixers, led by possible MVP Joel Embiid, are going to remain healthy and finally pull it all together.


It’s gonna be Boston vs. Milwaukee.

The Celtics are on a mission to finally win their first championship since 2008.

That’s 15 years if my math is correct and rarely it is.

But I do know that the Celts got that close (well, 4-2 series) last season before losing to Steph Curry’s lights-out Warriors in the NBA Finals.

Moving ahead, the Celtics are desperately trying to gain home-court advantage against the East-leading Bucks. Securing that would be huge. Those teams’ home crowds get insane, both, so if it comes down to a Game 7 …

And Boston’s schedule is slightly favorable to Milwaukee’s. The Celtics finish the season with three home games which they’ll win.

Most important, Boston owns the tie-breaker (2-1) over Milwaukee, so, if the two teams tie, it’s TD Garden and a Finals score for Boston.

In closing, Boston has had Milwaukee’s number over the past several games.

This here explains plenty.

The two J’s (Tatum and Brown) are going to win the East. Sorry, Gianis.

Now, can they beat the Nuggets or Kings?

And if it’s somehow LeBron and the Lakers against the Celtics then all bets are off … except that it will be the highest-rated NBA Finals of all time.

Book all of this. Don’t mark it. Or save it. Just believe me. Heh.
