NBA futures allow you to bet on outcomes that are determined over the course of the season. For example, which team will win their division, conference, or the NBA Finals, or which player will win a certain award. Futures odds are made available to bet on before the season starts, and can also be wagered on throughout the campaign.
As a result, NBA futures odds can change for a team or player during the season depending on their performances, and you need to consider when is the best time to place your futures bet. Factors such as injuries, form, and trades can have a massive impact on the odds, either over a long period of time, or at short notice.
For instance, the Los Angeles Lakers may have short odds to win the NBA Finals if they are leading their division and conference, although these odds would likely lengthen if key players like LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook all got injured and they failed to win any of their next 10 games as a result.
Popular NBA futures include NBA Finals futures, conference futures, division futures, and awards futures. Many sportsbooks offer odds for each of these markets, and you can check the latest odds for all of them and more with BET.CA.
