The Celtics didn't add many new faces to their core this offseason, but they didn't need to in the eyes of one Vegas oddsmaker. The Westgate Sportsbook in Las Vegas released their win totals for all 30 NBA teams on Sunday and put the Celtics over/under for next season at 57.5 wins, the second-highest total in the NBA behind the Warriors (62.5 wins).

Here's a look at some of the notable teams in both conferences and how they stack up to the C's in the opening listings.

Warriors: 62.5
Celtics: 57.5
Rockets: 54.5
Sixers: 54.5
Raptors: 54.5
Thunder: 50.5
Lakers: 48.5
Pacers: 47.5
Bucks: 46.5

This is the second-straight year that the Celtics have opened up with the second-highest over/under win total from Westgate. They finished just under last year's mark of 56.5 with 55 wins despite missing Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving for huge chunks of the season.

BSJ Analysis

It's very interesting to see the Westgate list the East with three of the five best teams in the NBA for next year by this metric.
