With James Harden trade, Nets odds to win NBA plummet, except with PointsBet

Author: americangambler | Last Updated: January 15, 2021

When it was announced that James Harden was leaving Houston for Brooklyn, there were plenty of happy people around New York City.

Many fans, including those working in certain dancing establishments, now saw the odds on the Nets drop very quickly, in both the Eastern Conference and in the NBA as a whole. Brooklyn, with Harden and Kevin Durant back together (and maybe Kyrie Irving if he ever plays again), is now the overwhelming favorite to win the Eastern Conference with PointsBet at odds of +110. Milwaukee is now second choice at +350, with the Boston Celtics +650.

The Nets jumped way up in the NBA Championship odds as well, to +300, just behind defending champion Los Angeles Lakers (+275).

But if you are quick, you can get the Nets on PointsBet at their original odds of +600 before the Harden trade. Thanks to a creative promotion, the first 500 bettors will get Brooklyn at those old odds, which could double your winnings if Kevin Durant holds up a third Finals MVP trophy in July.

This promotion is not going to be around for long, so head over to PointsBet now and look for the boost.

While you are there, you can check out all the other bet boosts on offer, for this weekend and beyond. Check out the Josh Allen 300+ yards boost, which is at +105 from -115. If the Bills are going to win this game, Allen is going to be the guy to lead them.

Or maybe you want to back Aaron Rodgers to throw for 3+ touchdowns, at a boost of +130 from original odds of +100.

There are NHL boosts, NCAA boosts, and all kinds of others as well. 

PointsBet does it again! No Juice Spreads return for Divisional Weekend

Last weekend, PointsBet did the unthinkable.

The site gave bettors No Juice Spreads on all six NFL Wildcard games Saturday and Sunday.

Well, it must have been a big hit with gamblers, because PointsBet is back at it this weekend for the four Divisional Round games.

On Saturday, for the Los Angeles Rams at Green Bay Packers NFC battle, and the Baltimore Ravens at Buffalo Bills AFC showdown, PointsBet is offering No Juice Spreadlines on the action. It will be the same Sunday, first for the Cleveland Browns at Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC, then Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Orleans Saints in the NFC.

So what does this mean for bettors? Well, say you want to bet the Packers with odds of -6.5 in the first game of the weekend. Instead of laying -110 ($110 to win $100), you get Green Bay at +100 ($100 to win $100).

Or maybe you like the Ravens at +2.5; that is +100. Kansas City at -10? +100. And you guessed it, Tampa Bay +3 odds? +100.

That could save you some cool hard cash over the span of the weekend.

Just remember, you don’t automatically get that promotion. You have to open each game with the wagers, and look under the Featured Wagers just below the Spread, Total, and Money Line boxes. 

For me, I am going with the Packers, Ravens, Chiefs, and Bucs: two slight underdogs, and two big favorites.

Head over to PointsBet now to get in on the action.
