To bet on NBA Futures and Outrights, a bettor must determine the market in which to place the wager and then bet on a specific team in that market.
National Basketball Association Futures include Odds to Win the NBA championship (often called NBA Finals), Odds to Win the Eastern/Western Conference championship, and Odds to win a specific division.
A bettor is placing a bet for the backed team to win a specific NBA championship.
Usually, one team is considered the favorite to win and may return a payout of odds less than even money, depending on its favoritism.
Sometimes, however, in a well-balanced or deep championship contending field, all of the entries may return better than even money.
In most cases, the higher the odds, the longer (or more difficult) the chances of that specific team winning the offered championship, however, the odds could also reflect the oddsmakers’ adjustment for exposure to certain teams in the pool that could affect their winning payout.
When placing wagers on futures and outrights, it is important for bettors to shop for the best-offered line at a variety of sportsbooks since these types of bets can frequently vary from shop to shop.
