When it comes to betting on the Sixth Man of the Year award, it may not be an overly popular betting market, but we certainly offer odds on it and encourage you to take advantage of the option if you feel you know who will win. After all, it is a futures wager, which is one of the most simple wagers you can place, albeit risky.
A futures wager is a wager that you place on an outcome that will occur in the future – so in this case, a wager on who the Sixth Man of the Year award recipient will be, but you will want to place this wager far in advance as the odds will start to lean in favor of the player who is most likely to win the later we get in the season.
You will see a list of bench players who continue to get playing time, with numbers next to their names. These are their odds, and they will reflect how likely that player is to win the award. Usually there are favored players, and their odds will be displayed as a low number in the negative if they are a big favorite, or the low 100’s. An underdog player who is less likely to win, will be displayed in a positive number, likely in the thousands if they are a large underdog.
All you have to do to place your NBA Sixth Man of the Year wager is to choose the player you think will win. If your player ends up being a bust or you lose your confidence in that player, you can always cash out your wager for a reduced return. Some money back is better than nothing!
