With more than 1200 games played from October to April each year, NBA bettors have a solid number of daily markets to wager on every single day. However, there has been a notable increase in popularity with bets where the outcome is determined at the end of the season and those are called NBA futures.
They can be split into two categories – team-oriented bets and individual player bets. When it comes to the former, you can start betting on these as early as one week into the summer after a season is complete, as some oddsmakers are quick to list their respective prices forDivision winners, Conference winners and most importantly NBA Finals winners.Individual NBA Future Markets include wagering on which player will win the MVP award, who will be the Defensive Player of the Year, Sixth Man, Most Improved and Rookie of theYear.
One of the most enticing factors when betting on NBA futures are larger payouts as bets often range from anything like +250 to +1100 odds. However, it is important to note that they are also one of the harder bets to land, but also one of the most fun to follow during the season.
