NBA Futures: Odds to win the 2018 NBA Championship
by Staff

Futures odds are a great way to bet using a very minimal amount of money with the potential of a great return. While these bets surely are risky due to the numerous potential outcomes, they allow one to be in the game for a large part of the season and give the recreational bettor something to pull for.

*These odds were updated on October 6th, 2017.

Bet these odds using your credit card at the web's most trusted online sportsbook: Bovada.

Our Picks:
It's pretty tough to fathom anybody other than Golden State winning the title. Once again, they're STACKED. Injuries can/do happen though, so we'll take a couple shots at some valuable longshots. For starters, we'll take a "pop" (no pun intended) at San Antonio at 12-1. The Spurs have the leagues best coach (Poppovich) and arguably the league's best player (Kawhi Leonard). Lastly, there's something special brewing in Portland, Oregon. The Blazers will surprise this year! At 200-1, they're worth a shot!

How to Bet

Point Spread - The most basic of basketball wagers.

Moneyline - For those that simply want to bet on a team to win straight up.

Totals - Also known as an over/under. This bet has nothing to do with who which team wins or by how many. You're simply predicting if both teams points scored will exceed or fall short of the posted total.

Parlays - Multi-team wager where all must win in order to get paid. Big risk and big reward.

Teasers - Multi-team bet where you get to move the line a certain amount of points on each game. All teams must cover the teased point spreads to cash.

Pleasers - The opposite of a teaser. You're "giving" points away, making this bet a much tougher proposition to win.

Prop Bets - Wagers not having to do with which team wins the game or by how many. These usually pertain to wagers on individual players points scored, rebounds, assists, steals, etc.

NBA Futures - Bet on your favorite team to win their division, conference or the NBA Finals. A great bet for those looking to risk very little for a potentially large payoff.
