Popular NBA bets for Celtics games

There are a huge number of options available when it comes to betting on basketball. However, there are a few standard wagers that every Celtics bettor should know.

  • Celtics moneyline: Bet on the team you think will win. There is no winning margin involved, and the betting odds will sway depending on how heavily the presumed victor is favored. These bets include extra time as well.
  • Celtics point spread: Choose a team based on the handicap provided by the sportsbook. For instance, a -4.5 Celtics bet means a winning bet cashes if they win by five or more points.
  • Celtics total: This is simply betting on the combined points scored by the end of the game. It’s also known as an over/under bet.

Celtics props and futures bets

Sportsbooks will often include futures bets. These are bets that you can place many months in advance to predict an outcome such as MVP, NBA Finals results, etc.

Most sportsbooks will also offer prop bets. A prop bet is like a bet within a bet. There are many game props and player props available. They can range from predicting how many points a player will score to predicting by how many points a team will win. Here are some examples:

Prop BetsPossible Odds
Winning MarginCeltics 1-5 - +500
Celtics 6-10 - +450
Celtics 11-15 - +1300
Which half will have the most points scored?1st half - -110
2nd half - -115
Jayson Tatum 20.5 Total PointsOver - -130
Under - +130
Jalen Brown Double-DoubleYes - -110
No - +110
NBA Finals ChampionGolden State Warriors - +450
Phoenix Suns - +450
Brooklyn Nets - +550
Conference WinnerMilwaukee Bucks - +275
Brooklyn Nets - +280
Philadelphia 76ers - +325

Celtics live betting odds

Another neat thing about online sports betting is that you have the option to bet live. Many sportsbooks allow users to place a bet while the game is in action.

If you sense a momentum shift, you can place a bet while the odds are in your favor. These types of odds will change by the second, so you’ll want to be quick with your trigger finger.

For example, the odds for the Celtics to win might have been +100 before the game started. But if they fell behind 8-0 early, the odds could shift. With the team down 8-0, the live odds could be something like +250. If you still feel the Celtics will win, this is an excellent time to place your bet and bet the inflated Celtics odds. You can make the same type of bet on the total.

Celtics Vegas odds

Las Vegas odds used to be the gold standard for sports betting. However, these days, many more options are available with the emergence of online sportsbooks.

In Vegas, the different sportsbooks tend not to stray too far from one another. But in the online world, there can be a dramatic difference between sportsbooks, depending on the different partnerships they have with odds-making companies.

For example, the Vegas odds currently have the Celtics at +4000 to win the NBA Championship. However, DraftKings has them at +2500, and FanDuel has them at +3000.

As you can see, there can be quite a bit of disparity. It benefits you to look around at different sportsbooks to find the best value.
