My opinion is mine which can be debated........however there are facts in regards to the oddsmakers in play which cannot be debated.You truly are insufferable. Celtics are also the odds on favorites according to the oddsmakers.
This isn't some long shot miracle chance here. Stop acting like it is.
I know I know:..you're smarter than all of us tho!!
The line that oddsmakers place on an event have literally zero to do with who they feel will win or who they expect to win. The line is made to create equal action on both sides to ensure a profit on the event.......in short, the line is made by the bettors. If the only bettors were in Boston then Hayward would be a HEAVY favorite based on the odds that the publics opinion created. That is of course by no means a true depiction of what the real chances are of Hayward signing in Boston as these odds would greatly differ if the only bettors were from Utah.
Hey, I'd love to be wrong and have the "But Brad!" crowd be right.......my opinion is that it is a longshot in the 15% range. The opinion of others who create the bookmakers odds have no influence in my opinion.
