Boston Celtics 2021-22 Season
The Boston Celtics entered the 2021-22 season with hopes of avenging a dissapointing exit from the 2021 postseason losing their first round series 4-1 to the Brooklyn Nets. Most expected the Celtics to be a middle-of-the-pack Eastern Conference team with a new coach at the helm and some new personnel in the roster. The Celtics have lived up to that billing halfway through the season. Boston finds itself on the right side of the playoff tournament cutoff line, but does not enjoy much of a cushion after the All-Star break.
The Celtics are gearing up for the second half of the regular season with hopes of remaining out of the play-in tournament. To do that, Boston will need to continue to find ways to win and knock off a few Eastern Conference opponents currently ahead of them in the standings.
Keeps tabs on the Boston Celtics throughout the year as they battle it out with the Philadelphia 76ers for the Atlantic Division.
Betting on the Boston Celtics
The Boston Celtics are still strongly favored to make the playoffs, but the second half of the season will go a long way in deciding where they end up in the seeding. With everything to play for, the Celtics will be a fun team to bet in the rest of the regular season. Here are some of the popular bet types that you can make on the Celtics if you live in a legal sports betting state.
- Point Spread
- Futures Odds
A moneyline bet requires a bettor to correctly pick the winner of the game. If you pick the winner of the game correctly, you will win the bet. How much you win will be determined by your wager amount and the associated moneyline for the team you bet on. Here's an example using a recent Celtics game against the 76ers.
- Celtics -130 moneyline
- 76ers +107 moneyline
Boston is the team favored to win this game, which is indicated by the minus sign (-) next to their moneyline. Philadelphia is the underdog denoted by the plus sign (+) next to their moneyline. The moneyline number signifies the potential payout for each team. Someone betting on Boston would have to bet $130 to win $100 whereas a bettor would win $107 with a wager of $100 on Philadelphia.
Users can also place a point spread wager on the Boston Celtics. This requires a bettor to correctly select the margin of victory by a particular team, rather than simply who wins. Here's the same Celtics vs. 76ers matchup as an example.
- Celtics -2 (-110)
- 76ers +2 (-110)
Oddsmakers set a margin of victory total known as the spread. In this game, Boston has to win by 3 or more points to beat this spread and Philadelphia either has to win the game outright or lose by 1 point to beat the spread. Point spreads also have an additional element known as juice, or the vig, which is the tax paid to the sportsbook for each bet. The juice is indicated next to the point spread. This number is used to determine a wager payout. For a bet on the Celtics, a bettor would earn a profit of $100 for every $110 risked. Someone betting on Philadelphia would also earn a profit of $100 for every $110 risked.
Betting on over/under totals looks at the cumulative final score between two teams, not the winner or loser of the game. Bettors are required to accurately predict if the teams combine higher or lower than a number set by oddsmakers. Oddsmakers set the over/under total for Celtics vs. 76ers at 209.5 points.
- Over 209.5 points (-110)
- Under 209.5 points (-109)
Again, juice or vig comes into play with over/unders. Betting over 209.5 points means in this case that a bettor would have to wager $110 to earn $100. Betting under 209.5 points would mean a bettors would earn $100 for every $109 risked.
Celtics Prop Bets
For those Boston Celtics fans that have a particular favorite player, prop bets are a great way to bet on them. Oddsmakers will also set lines on player statistics. Bettors then have the opportunity to guess whether those players will go over or under the set line to win money. Some popular prop bets include how many points a player will score, who will score first, how many rebounds a player gets, and many more.
Celtics Future Odds
Futures are bets that focus on long term outcomes, like the Celtics to make the playoffs, win the Atlantic Division, win the Eastern Conference, win the NBA Finals, or even individual awards like Jayson Tatum winning league MVP.
How to Bet on the Boston Celtics
MA lawmakers have yet to come to an agreement on budgeting and the legality of college sports wagering, which is standing in the way of the legalization of sports betting in Massachusetts. Discussions on the fine print of HB 3977 will be ongoing until further notice. MA residents can expect legalized sports betting by late 2022 or early 2023.
Massachusetts residents will soon have the option to travel to Maine to place their bets on the Celtics. Maine sports betting was legalized on April 19, 2022, after Gov. Janet Mills passed LD 585 almost two weeks after the State Senate approved the bill.
