The Boston Celtics continue to roll. This team has done a complete 180 since the start of the new year, boasting an incredible 29-9 record since Jan. 1.

It's no surprise to see that the Celtics' odds to win the NBA championship on FanDuel Sportsbook are soaring as the regular season nears an end.

Celtics Championship Odds

Boston owned +6500 odds to win the NBA championship in mid-January, ranking in the middle of the pack at No. 15 overall. This blazing stretch of basketball, though, has sent them flying up the board. They now check in tied at No. 6 with only +1100 odds to win the Larry O'Brien tophy.

The Celtics have looked almost uneatable over the past two months. They posted an 8-2 record in February, tying their best winning percentage for that month in franchise history. They've followed that up with a 10-1 record in March, including their most recent 125-97 trouncing of the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night.

Boston's defensive play has been the catalyst to turning its season around. Ime Udoka's squad owns the second-best defensive rating (106.5) in the league, and they've coupled that with the ninth-best offensive rating (113.3), making this a two-headed beast in the east.

As long as the Celtics keep this play up, they could be a nightmare for teams in the playoffs, no matter what seed they finish with.
