On Jan. 11, the Boston Celtics were 2-point underdogs against the Milwaukee Bucks. That's the same day Bill Belichick was fired by the New England Patriots. The NFL playoffs would start two days later and Jim Harbaugh was still at Michigan just three days after winning a national title.

It was a while ago. And for the five months that followed, the Celtics were favored in almost every single basketball game they played.

The Celtics are 1.5-point underdogs at BetMGM for Wednesday's Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the Dallas Mavericks, and that's notable.
