NBA betting: Boston Celtics vs. Golden State Warriors Picks and odds

On the whole, the Warriors are significantly better than one year ago.  Stephen Curry’s return has been just what the doctor ordered.  Curry missed nearly all of the 2019-20 season.  As a result, Golden State suffered one of the most significant NBA betting collapses in history.  Warriors coach Steve Kerr has lost nearly all key pieces from his dynasty team.  Curry is the only notable figure remaining.  Golden State lacks the supporting cast for Curry that led to championships.  Thus far, the Celtics are keeping themselves above water.  But coach Brad Stevens’ team is not flashing a championship pose.
