All we will be missing is the legendary play-by-play announcer Mike Breen on the call to yell out his signature “Bang!” when that first Celtics 3-pointer goes down.
The Boston Celtics are taking a much-needed day off on Friday. However, once their game against the Atlanta Hawks tips off on Saturday night, folks in Massachusetts will be eagerly awaiting the first time a Celtics player splashes a 3-point shot.
In honor of the launch of legal online sports betting in Massachusetts, FanDuel Massachusetts is offering a super boost dedicated to the Celtics hitting at least one 3-point basket.

All you need to do to access this offer is create an account on FanDuel Sportsbook in Massachusetts and click on the “Boosts” tab. There you will find the Super Boost offer. The max you can bet is $100. So this bet cashes the first time a Celtics player drains one from downtown.
It is an excellent deal for someone making their first bet and looking to have some fun watching the Celtics play on the road.
It will take a miracle for this bonus not to cash
Let’s put this bet in perspective. There is almost zero chance it is not going to hit. Usually, you should never say never in the sports betting game. But this is one of the few exceptions.
Here’s some context. The 2022-2023 Boston Celtics average nearly 16 made 3-pointers per game. For this to hit, all you need is for them to hit one. That doesn’t even factor in this current age and style of NBA basketball, where teams are launching 3s like never before.
Let’s go even further. The last time an NBA game was played where a team did not make a single 3-point shot was back on Feb. 5, 2016. The Miami Heat defeated the Charlotte Hornets 98-95 without making a 3. Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh and company went 0-9 from three-point range in a win.
Let that sink in your head for a moment. They actually won the game by three points without making a 3.
From the end of the 2015-2016 season to today, over 13,000 regular season games have been played in the NBA. During that timeframe, there has not been one occurrence where a team finished the game without making at least one 3-pointer. Those are the actual odds we are working with. This is as certain of a bet as you can make.
The Celtics will take on the Atlanta Hawks on the road on Saturday night. Tip-off is at 7:30 p.m. This is the only game this super boost is good for, so you’ll want to take advantage of this golden opportunity.GamblingHelpLineMA.org or call (800)-327-5050 for 24/7 support.’ ‘21+ and present in MA.
