Online sports betting goes live in Massachusetts on Friday, March 10, and Caesars Massachusetts Sportsbook is among the apps ready for launch.
Six Massachusetts sportsbook apps are set to open for your betting action Friday, and Caesars is one of our favorites. Caesars has been a stalwart of the sports betting business for decades, maintaining a palatial presence in Las Vegas since 1966. The company has expanded its sports betting offerings as legal gambling has proliferated across the country, and Massachusetts is its latest stop.
Come Friday, sports bettors in Boston — and throughout the state — will be able to download the Caesars Sportsbook app on their mobile phones, claim what we expect to be a generous sign-up bonus, and begin wagering on their favorite sports.
Caesars Massachusetts Sportsbook Opens in Time for March Madness
Top of mind for sports fans this time of year is March Madness. On Sunday — Selection Sunday — the brackets will be unveiled, and sportsbooks will post lines and open betting on the early matchups. The NCAA Tournament is one of the biggest sports betting events of the year.
Until this year, though, the March Madness betting experience of many sports fans has been limited to competing in bracket pools with their friends and co-workers. Sure, that’s a fun activity, but legal sports betting allows Massachusetts fans to extend the excitement to as many tournament games as they wish.
In past years, if your bracket has been busted during the first few days of the Madness, the fun has come to an end pretty quickly. Now, even if your Final Four teams have been eliminated in the first weekend, you can open your sportsbook app and get some action down on any game of your choice.
Celtics, Bruins Odds at Caesars Massachusetts
Boston is blessed with fantastic pro sports teams, and the Celtics and Bruins are both in excellent positions in their respective leagues. In fact, according to the odds at Caesars Sports, the Celtics are favored to win the NBA Championship this season, and the Bruins are favored to lift the Stanley Cup.
What a year this could be for Boston sports!
Caesars offers the Celtics at +330 odds to return to the NBA Finals and actually win it this time around. For the uninitiated, +330 means that you would win $330 on a $100 bet should the C’s claim the title (a total of $430 would be put into your sportsbook account — $330 in winnings, plus your original $100 stake).
The Bruins see similar odds to win their first NHL championship since 2011. At Caesars, the Bruins are +300 (or 3-to-1 odds) to bring home the Stanley Cup. Again, this means a winning $100 bet on the Bruins would return $300 in profit.
You can, of course, bet the Celtics and Bruins on a per-game basis, too. In the NBA, the most popular way to wager is against the point spread. On Wednesday night, for example, the Celtics were 10-point favorites (-10) against the Portland Trail Blazers, and since Boston came away with the 115-93 win (a 22-point margin), they covered the spread.
Moneyline bets are common in hockey. On Thursday night, the Bruins are -170 at home against the Oilers. This means that to win $100 in profit, you must wager $170. If that’s too much risk for your liking, you could play the Boston puckline ‘laying’ 1.5 goals at +140 odds. This means that the Bruins would have to win by at least two goals for you to cash your ticket, but a $100 bet could result in a $140 profit.
The Celtics and Bruins are both in action again on Sunday, when online sports betting will be up and running in Massachusetts, so check back here at 10 a.m. Friday, sign up for a Caesars Sportsbook account, and get some skin in the game.
We have a pretty good feeling that Caesars will have a fantastic welcome offer for you that you can find right here at Gaming Today.
How About a Red Sox or Patriots Futures Bet with Caesars?
While MLB and the NFL are not in-season, you can still place ‘futures’ bets on these sports.
Neither the Red Sox nor the Patriots are exactly in their heyday, but Boston fans may still want to take a shot backing their home team.
At Caesars Sportsbook, the Red Sox are priced at +7000 (or 70-to-1 odds) to win the 2023 World Series. Yes, a $100 bet on the Sox could earn you a $7,000 payday.
The Patriots are +6000 (or 60-to-1 odds) to win the Super Bowl. That’s another fat price that Bill Belichick believers may want to get a piece of.

Six sportsbooks are expected to go live in the Commonwealth on Friday at 10 a.m.
