The Boston Celtics are attempting to do something that has never been done before in NBA history: Come back from a 3-0 series deficit in the playoffs.
Boston has looked awful, especially in Game 3 of this series, and the team has finally moved to an underdog in a game for the first time in this series.
Entering the series, Boston was a massive favorite at -550 to advance to the NBA Finals. Now? The Celtics sit at +700 to advance to face the Denver Nuggets. That’s an implied probability of 12.5 percent.
Can Boston make history and come back to beat the Heat? It starts on Tuesday night in Game 4 in Miami.

Celtics vs. Heat series odds for Eastern Conference Finals
BOS Celtics vs MIA Heat – Series
Odds updated May 23rd, 2023, at 9:23 am
Whether Celtics fans want to admit it or not, this deficit is pretty much insurmountable.
NBA fans watched the Los Angeles Lakers get swept in the Western Conference Finals on Monday night, and it’s possible that the Celtics are facing a similar result tonight.
Teams that lost as badly as Boston did in Game 3 usually don’t fare well in Game 4.
There are better ways to spend your money than betting on Boston to win this series, as +700 odds simply isn’t good enough of a value for something that has literally never been done before.
If you think Boston can win Game 4, you can bet on the Celtics as slight underdogs tonight.
Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
