When looking at these NBA Finals odds, you have a huge selection of teams with plus money odds (unless there is a huge favorite, in that case you will see negative odds), and you can place some money on your favorite team or the team you think has the best chance of winning the NBA Finals that year. Your odds of choosing the correct team are 30/1, so there is some big risk when placing these wagers.
Aside from Futures, you can place plenty of other wagers on the NBA Finals Championship series. As we mentioned, the winner is crowned after a best of five series, so you have five opportunities to bet on a range of moneylines, totals and point spreads, as well as a huge variety of props and specials.
There are huge benefits to having the championship decided in a series, not a one-and-done game like the Super Bowl. You will find so many betting options throughout the championship series as well as betting on futures odds.
With moneyline odds, you are just betting on the winner of a single NBA Finals game itself, point spreads, which give the underdog team a bit of a head start before the game begins – meaning they either have to win or lose by less than the spread amount, and totals which is an over/under on the total score of both teams combined.
Betting on the NBA Finals can be really fun, but can be riskier than most, as it’s the top two teams in the league and the competition will be fierce. The games are usually tight and you won’t find huge underdogs or favorites when betting on these games. The NBA is unique because there are more dynasty teams than any other league – teams are smaller with rosters of superstar talent.
If you think you’re ready to bet on the NBA Finals, you can head over to the sportsbook and start placing your futures wagers at least, and when the NBA Finals roll around, you can place your game wagers.
