The Boston Celtics were first established in 1946 and have been the National Basketball Association’s most successful franchise. They ruled over the NBA with a forty-year long dynasty from the 1950s to 1980s. In their rule, they accumulated 16 championships, 19 conference titles and 13 division titles with an unprecedented eight straight championships from 1959 to 1966. This dynasty ended in the nineties.
The Celtics still continued to be a significant player in the NBA winning another title in 2008 and both fans and gamblers alike devotedly bet on them.

Bet On Boston Celtics Games
To bet on the Boston Celtics, check your sportsbook’s money line. This is the Americanized betting system that lists team odds as either a minus (favorite) or plus (underdog) and you bet either straight up. The minus number like -170 indicates a bet of $170 is needed to win $100 while a plus number like +155 means $155 is won on a bet of $100. Favorites are the more likely winners thus the return is smaller and vice versa with underdogs.
The color of money: the Celtics were pretty much the New York Yankees of the NBA for between 1950 to 1993. In this legendary 43-year span, the Celtics made consistent NBA Finals and won multiple titles. They only missed the playoffs in four seasons and winning 50 and 60 games in the regular season was routine. It would’ve been foolish to bet against the Celtics. Their ever-present green jerseys were synonymous with money at this point.
Back to the future: following the decline of the Celtics dynasty in the early nineties, the franchise underwent a period of drought in the nineties before returning to the playoffs in the 2001-2002 season. They suddenly became NBA Champions again in the 2007-2008 season following blockbuster deals that combined future Hall of Famers’, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and longtime Celtic, Paul Pierce. They returned to the NBA Finals in the 2009-2010 season in a rematch against the Los Angeles Lakers, which they lost in seven games.
Celtics proposition: a proposition bet or “prop” bet are a type of wager made on a very specific outcome of a game or season. In the offseason, you can bet the Celtics to accomplish things such as winning the NBA title, the division or whether they make the playoffs or not. Whatever types of prop bets you get depends on your sportsbook but they are usually more profitable than a straight bet disregarding the fact that they are harder to predict.
