NBA Coach of the Year


The NBA Coach of the Year is the annual award given to the coach who displayed the best leadership and drive through the regular NBA season (winning also helps!). The award was introduced in the 1962-63 season, and named after Red Auerbach, the head coach of the Boston Celtics who won nine NBA championships from 1956 to 1966.

Much like other NBA awards and honors, the NBA Coach of the Year award is chosen by a panel of sports writers and journalists from North America, who follow the same format as other awards in the league. Each panelist have three votes, first, second and third place coaches. For each first place vote, a coach will receive five points, for each second place vote, a coach receives 3 points and for a third place vote, a coach receives one point.

These points are tallied and the coach with the most points will win the NBA Coach of the Year award. There have been 40 different coaches to win the award in the almost 60 year running of the award. There is a three-way tie for most wins with three titles between Don Nelson (with the Milwaukee Bucks in 1983 and 1985, and the Golden State Warriors 1992), Pat Riley (with the LA Lakers in 1990, New York Knicks in 1993, and the Miami Heat in 1997) and Greg Popovich (San Antonio Spurs in 2003, 2012 and 2014).

The 2020-2021 NBA Coach of the Year award recipient was Tom Thibodeau from the New York Knicks, which was his second award.


When it comes to betting on the NBA Coach of the Year award, it doesn’t get much more simple. These wagers are called futures wagers, and essentially are what they sound like – bets you place on events that will happen in the future. These futures wagers have inflated odds as it can be more challenging to predict an outright winner of an event that has 82 regular season games between your bet and your outcome.

However, while these bets carry an abundance of risk, they also carry an abundance of reward. You can win some big money betting on an NBA Coach of the Year award recipient, or any awards market for that matter.

If you’re over on the sportsbook and looking at the basketball odds section, you’ll find the NBA Coach of the Year award odds. This page will have a list of NBA odds, with each of the coaches and their odds of winning the award in the upcoming season. You will have to decide which one you believe is most likely to win without knowing what happens in the future.

The key to placing a successful wager is understanding that there are always injuries, struggles and issues that teams face throughout the season, you will need to make a sound decision when placing your NBA Coach of the Year bets this NBA season. Usually you will see the previous year’s recipient at the top of the odds list, among other favorites who lead dynasty teams to the playoffs year after year.

If you’re ready to start placing your NBA Coach of the Year wagers, you can head over to our sportsbook and start betting now. The earlier you get your NBA futures wagers in, the better the odds will be!

Rolling If Bets (RIF) allow you to use the balance (amount) from existing wagers to make a new wager. As long as existing wagers have not been graded, the amount wagered can still be used to make new wagers. However, if your original wager loses, the Rolling If Bet is then cancelled. There are two options for ties (pushes); you can specify if you want the Rolling If Bet to continue in case of a tie or simply cancel the RIF.

Rolling If Bets are:
  • only allowed on straight bets, Parlays and Teasers.
  • not available with Free Plays or Futures and Props
  • only available if you have pre existing, non graded wagers
  • you can only use the funds from the amount of the pre existing wager
How to Place a Rolling If Bet:
  • Choose any straight, parlay or teaser and Place it on the Bet Slip
  • Click on the Rolling If Bet button next to the wager detail
  • In the RIF dropdown, choose a wager that you want to use for RIF
  • Click on "If Win Only" or "If Win or Push" (explained above)
