Sherman said in a text message that he respected the twobettors that played the sharp stuff with him.

A $100,000 bet was taken on the Celtics to win the series. As of Wednesday, it was the biggest wager the book had taken.

Craig Mucklow, head of trading at Caesars, said that the book needs the Celtics to win in the series and in the first game.
