NBA Finals futures are one of the most popular NBA betting markets. These wagers span a lengthy period of time, allowing bettors to wager on the most significant outcomes of the campaign.
NBA Finals futures odds are announced prior to the start of the season, and updated throughout the offseason as players move around with new signings and trades. Once the season begins, NBA Finals futures odds will almost certainly change on a daily basis, as teams win and lose games and more players are injured or traded.
When placing an NBA Finals futures wager, there are numerous things to consider. One thing to keep in mind is the conference in which a team competes, as they must win their conference before competing for the NBA Championship. While the Western Conference has long been considered superior, the Eastern Conference is regarded to have improved its elite team depth in recent years.
Additionally, consider the impact of a potential injury on a futures wager. If the Milwaukee Bucks were heavy favorites to win the Eastern Conference and thus a contender to win the NBA Finals, their odds would almost definitely be affected if their main star Giannis Antetokounmpo was injured. In that case, a futures wager on another strong Eastern Conference team could become valuable.
