Betting on NBA futures

Betting on NBA futures has become a big part of the overall handle for the sport. Odds to win the NBA championship are one of the most popular wagers, taking action well before the season until the closing game of the NBA Finals.

NBA futures betting is a unique market due to the extended period that these bets unfold. Whatever odds the futures bet is placed at will be the odds that the bet is paid out at, regardless of how much those odds adjust after the fact.
