In fact, most of the offers you see above can be used on nearly any other sport unless specifically stated in the terms and conditions. Usually, this applies to certain wager types and not specific sports, but it's always a good idea to check just in case.

Celtics NBA Championship Odds

According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Celtics championship odds are -3500 after taking a 3-0 series lead. Regardless of which sportsbook you look at, oddsmakers currently have the Boston Celtics as the betting favorites to win the 2023-2024 NBA Championship. This has been the case since odds were released this summer and Boston has yet to lose the top spot.

Jayson Tatum Finals MVP Odds

Although Jayson Tatum was not in the running for regular season MVP, the playoffs now provide another opportunity for the Celtics lead man. Tatum has slid to the second betting favorite to win Finals MVP behind teammate Jaylen Brown after opening the series as the favorite. Tatum's Finals MVP odds are currently +260 on Caesars Sportsbook MA after opening at -110 ahead of Game 1.

Has Jayson Tatum Ever Won an MVP Award?

No, Boston Celtics all-star Jayson Tatum has not won an MVP award yet in his career. While he has come close in recent years, he has often been outside of the top 3 candidates. 

Jaylen Brown Finals MVP Odds

Jaylen Brown's NBA Finals MVP odds currently sit at -325 on Fanatics Sportsbook which places him as the overwhelming favorite to win the award. Brown's MVP odds have shortened dramatically since the beginning of the series when they opened at +600 or longer. Through the first three games of the NBA Finals, Brown is averaging 24.3 points, 6.0 rebounds, 5.7 assists, 2.0 steals, and 1.3 blocks.
