Teams that made moves in the offseason – even with each other – are favored in the Eastern Conference, the Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics.
In BetUS NBA online betting odds, the Eastern Conference sits at -110 to produce the NBA champion. The Northeast is +450 for the titleist, the Southeast +400, and the Central at 450.
In the Eastern Conference betting picture, there are co-favorites in Boston and Milwaukee at +175. Other teams in single digits on the odds board are the Cleveland Cavaliers and and Philadelphia 76ers at +800.
Of course, the futures odds for the 76ers are subject to swing wildly depending on what happens with malcontent guard James Harden.
That’s a sticky situation if you choose to play Philly on the futures market. Yes, the 76ers have great Joel Embiid and talent around him but Harden is divisive and if he stays it could be problematic and if he leaves what will be the return.
If you are interested in teams making the playoffs, BetUS has odds for all the teams here.
The MVP front offers some tasty Vegas NBA odds with Giannis Antetokounmpo a second choice at +550.
Other Eastern contenders for MVP honors include Embiid (+650) and Jayson Tatum (+800).
