Game Of Jones: Over/Under 35 Wins For The Celtics This Season?
BOSTON (CBS) – It was an Over/Under Tuesday night on The Adam Jones Show’s “Game of Jones,” with Rich Keefe filling in for Jones.
In this latest edition, Keefe predicts the Over/Under on the following topics:
– Touchdowns for Brandon LaFell in 2014: Over/Under 5 TDs
“I’m going to say over. I know that sounds high, but I think he’ll go over five,” said Keefe. “I think he’ll be a red zone target for them.”
– Penalties for Patriots-Dolphins in Week 1: Over/Under 20 penalties
“I’m going to take the over. You can take the over in every one of those games. I still have my fingers crossed that by Week 4, 5 and 6 they kind of pull the reins back a little bit and it’s more about the football we’re used to seeing, but I think early on it’s going to be gross,” said Keefe.
– Jimmy Graham penalties for goalpost dunks in the regular season: Over/Under 2 penalties
“I’m going to take the over on this one too. I know he said he wouldn’t hurt his team, but if they have the game locked up this is the Jimmy Graham trademark. He’ll have over two dunks,” said Keefe.
– Red Sox games Jackie Bradley Jr. plays in the rest of the year: Over/Under 20
“I’ll take the under, because they still have Mookie Betts and other guys moving around,” said Keefe.
– Wins for Celtics this season (25-57 last year): Over/Under 35 wins
“I do not think they improve by 10 games. I like the number 35, because if you just say it on the surface then you’d think with Rajon Rondo for a full season they could be 10 games better, but I think he’s going to be traded and some of the other veteran guys as well. I think it’ll be a similar season to last year. It might not look exactly the same, but maybe 30 games or somewhere in there. So I’ll take the under of 35 wins,” said Keefe.
