NBA Futures Odds

NBA Futures Betting

An NBA "futures" bet is a wager on an event where the outcome will be determined much later in a given NBA season--beyond just the current day or week. Popular NBA futures center around results like betting on a team to make the playoffs, win their respective division and/or conference, or to win the NBA Finals. Other common NBA futures bets include correctly picking individual players to receive accolades like the NBA Most Valuable Player award and NBA Rookie of the Year. If the selected team or player wins the event on which the wager was placed, the bettor wins their bet.

Understanding NBA Futures Odds and Payouts

Futures odds are associated with bigger payouts since the outcomes are much more difficult to predict than a single game bet. As such a wide range of odds from anything like +250 to +1100 are not uncommon. Due to the inherently difficult nature of futures betting, bettors can expect “plus-money” options at the beginning of a season, even when betting on favorites. Futures are available across the entire season with changing odds based on team performance.

2021-22 NBA Regular Season Win Totals Odds

Every team comes into the start of the regular season with the goal of winning the NBA Championship. In order to do that, though, they must first win enough games to make the playoffs. This is where NBA win totals odds come into play for futures bettors. Oddsmakers set a line for each team on the number of games they are predicted to win. Bettors are given the option to either bet over/under that predicted win total. Team win totals and their associated moneylines are updated throughout the season. Are you ready to make your bet?

2021-22 NBA Playoff Odds

With the expansion of the playoff field in 2021, thanks to the new play-in tournament format, 10 NBA teams from each conference now have the chance to compete for a championship. The addition of the play-in tournament offers bettors more options at selecting which teams will make the playoffs. Take a look at the current NBA playoff odds and pick your favorites to advance to the postseason.

Jump to Eastern Conference Divisions: Atlantic | Central | Southeast

For years, the Eastern Conference was dominated by any team with LeBron James on it. Now, with James in the West, the Eastern Conference is as wide open as ever. From the 2020 Bubble Champion and sixth-seeded Miami Heat, to the 2021 Covid season champion and third-seed Milwaukee Bucks, the East has the potential to be a real merry-go-round. Plus, we can't forget the up-and-coming No. 5 seed Atlanta Hawks that made it to the Eastern Conference Finals last season either. Check out the latest NBA Eastern Conference Futures Odds to help you decide who will be the "Beasts of the East" in 2022.

Jump To: Boston Celtics | Brooklyn Nets | New York Knicks | Philadelphia 76ers | Toronto Raptors

Even with Kyrie Irving expected to miss more than half the season due to COVID-19 safety protocols, the Atlantic Division is still the Brooklyn Nets' to lose. The Philadelphia 76ers stand to be their only real test with the New York Knicks, Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors all seemingly poised to take steps back in 2021-22.

2021-22 NBA Central Division Odds

Jump To: Chicago Bulls | Cleveland Cavaliers | Detroit Pistons | Indiana Pacers | Milwaukee Bucks

The defending champion Milwaukee Bucks looked like a shoe-in to claim another division title, but the Chicago Bulls, and surprisingly, the Cleveland Cavaliers have stepped up to make it a three-team race. Division titles don't mean as much in the NBA for the playoffs as other leagues, but NBA Central Division Odds still give you a chance to make a pick and cash in on an exciting divisional title race.

2021-22 NBA Southeast Division Odds

Jump To: Atlanta Hawks | Charlotte Hornets | Miami Heat | Orlando Magic | Washington Wizards

The Miami Heat are looking to return as the powerhouse of the Southeast this season. The Washington Wizards and Charlotte Hornets have taken a step up in talent, and are looking to compete, while the Atlanta Hawks can't be forgotten after a deep playoff run last year.

The NBA Southeast Division Odds are tighter than ever, so make the right choice here or get left in the dust.

Jump to Western Conference Divisions: Northwest | Pacific | Southwest

The Golden State Warriors ran the West for half a decade before the departure of Kevin Durant and injuries to Klay Thompson saw them fall back down to earth. But their return to contention was inevitable. Add in a Phoenix Suns team that was two wins away from an NBA championship in 2021, and a LeBron James-led Lakers team that can never be counted out, and you've got an intense race to the Western Conference Championship. NBA Western Conference Championship Odds is your place to decide who will be the "Best of the West."

2021-22 NBA Northwest Division Odds

Jump To: Denver Nuggets | Minnesota Timberwolves | Oklahoma City Thunder | Portland Trail Blazers | Utah Jazz

The Utah Jazz will continue to be a tier up from the rest of the Northwest Division until the Denver Nuggets regain some of their health and the Portland Trail Blazers figure out some roster issues. The Oklahoma City Thunder will continue to try to rebuild with a remarkable 38 draft picks from now through 2028 while the Minnesota Timberwolves have a strong young core that they hope will take the next step into contention in short order. NBA Northwest Division Odds may be steep in the Jazz's favor, but maybe you've got a sleeper in mind for 2022?

Pacific Division icon with PHX featured

2021-22 NBA Pacific Division Odds

Jump To: Golden State Warriors | Los Angeles Clippers | Los Angeles Lakers | Phoenix Suns | Sacramento Kings

A weakened Los Angeles Lakers team as well as a Kawhi Leonard and Paul George-less Los Angeles Clippers team has the Pacific Division down to a two-team race. The Golden State Warriors are looking red hot, and Klay Thompson has finally returned to the court after dealing with a series of serious injuries.Despite Golden State’s early momentum, the defending Western Conference Champion Phoenix Suns aren't looking to make last season's success a one-year deal. Pacific Division Futures odds are tight and could arguably be the toughest Division to call in 2022.

Another two-team race, the Southwest looks to be coming down to the Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks.

The current NBA Southwest Futures Odds have the Grizzlies as favorites, but stay tuned to keep track of where oddsmakers see things going as the season progresses.Odds to win 2021-22 NBA Southwest Division:

    NBA MVP Odds Icon 

    NBA MVP Odds

    There is only one player that can claim the NBA’s highest individual honor each regular season: the NBA Most Valuable Player.The MVP award is voted on by a panel of sportswriters and broadcasters within the United States and Canada. While the panel will naturally consider a player’s individual stats such as points, rebounds, assists, and more, they will put those numbers into the context of how a player's team performs over the course of the season to help determine their MVP votes. See how the NBA MVP Odds ebb and flow as the season progresses and choose the player that you think will hoist the trophy this season.

    NBA Rookie of the Year Icon

    NBA Rookie of The Year Odds aka ROY

    The only award that is awarded to a new player 100 percent of the time. Rookies not only compete to make a name for themselves against the 60+ other fresh faced newcomers to the league, but they also compete with one another to be named the top of their draft class. NBA Rookie of The Year Odds tend to favor some of the first few picks in the draft, but history tells us that anyone could walk away with this coveted honor.

    Betting on NBA Futures

    After a long regular season and the grueling NBA Playoffs, only two teams remain to face-off in the NBA Finals. Once the Finals match-up is set, oddsmakers will set what is known as American Odds on the championship series. At this point, these are no longer future odds as the main event is near. For an event this major, the odds have a name: the NBA Finals Odds Series Price, using American Odds. Below is an example of the American Odds set for the 2021 NBA Finals:

    • Bucks logo Milwaukee Bucks -140 (Bet $100; win $40 on the Bucks)
    • Suns logoPhoenix Suns +200 (Bet $100; win $200 on the Suns)

    For additional resources, check out our betting calculators and our guide for betting on basketball. But here are the fast facts on odd types and how to bet on the NBA Finals.

    What are American Odds?

    American Odds are the default odds used by U.S. sportsbooks. The odds are based on winning $100 for a given bet on either the Favorite or the Underdog.  A Favorite will have a minus (-) sign next to the odds and represents the money you need to risk to win $100. An Underdog will have a plus (+) sign in front and represents the money you can win for every $100 risked. So, if you're betting on the Bucks at -140 against the Suns, that means Milwaukee is a slight favorite. You need to risk $140 to win $100 on the Bucks. If they win, you profit $100 and get your original $140 back.

    What are Decimal Odds?

    Beyond the U.S., most of the world uses Decimal Odds, in part because it’s easier to convert them to implied probabilities. Decimal odds represent the amount you win for every $1 wagered. The number represents the total return, not just the profit (this is different from American and fractional odds).

     What are Fractional Odds?

    Fractional Odds are used primarily in Ireland and the United Kingdom. Few bettors use fractional odds for betting sports other than horse racing, because the conversions to understand a return are challenging. To calculate winnings on fractional odds, multiply your bet by the top number (the numerator), then divide the result by the bottom number (the denominator).
