Should be Heat -8.0 or -8.5


By adding Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis, the Heat's big 3 can play a loosen style of basketball thanks to their great ability to knock down 3's. However, they are a liability on the defensive end and it will take a while for Allen and Lewis to adjust to the Heat's style of play. Meanwhile, The Celtics also got a new player in Jason Terry, who, along with Courtney Lee and Jeff Green will come off the bench, i believe this trio can score and defend and they are highly-underrated. Heat went 2-3 against the spread at home and 3-2 SU after April 1st last season. Losing Allen will hurt a bit, but the Celtics are a veteran team that will adjust their style of play. Having said that, i believe LeBron will try to be unselfish and want to distribute the ball to everyone, especially allen, on purpose and indirectly affect the team as a whole. I see a close game on opening night.


Early Lean: Boston Celtics +8

I dunno about Celtics ML, but I'm taking Boston and the points. I do think Boston has a really good chance at winning straight up because historically, the champs usually lose their home opener. Plus, I really like a motivated Celtics squad.
