It’s an exciting time for Boston sports here in our great city with the upcoming Celtics Bruins playoffs! This weekend begins a round of playoffs that NBA fans rejoice in. Bruins to follow Monday. Experts are projecting that both the Celtics and Bruins players will have top selling jerseys this year. So player popularity has never been higher! So if you’re lucky enough to have playoff tickets, or know someone who does, there are some details around the Garden that you need to know.
The Boston Bruins are celebrating after beating the Washington Capitals 5-2, setting the new NHL record for most points in a single season with 133 this week at TD Garden.
According to Fox Sports, bet makers love the Celtics:
The Celtics should be the betting favorites if you’re going by the advanced stats. Boston is second in defensive efficiency and third in offense. No other team is in the top five in each category.
The main reason Boston has surged the past two years is 3-point shooting. They take 42 3-pointers per game (second behind Golden State), make 16 per game (also second) and rank sixth in 3-point percentage (37.7%).
