NBA Futures Odds 2020 Yes, it’s NFL season. But, that means NBA betting at NJ sports betting apps is just around the corner. We are only about a month away from opening night, and the preseason is just two weeks away.

It’s time to start thinking about making your NBA Finals Futures bets, and taking advantage of the markets.

Let’s look at these markets for the 2019-2020 NBA Season.



NBA Finals Odds 2020

Team NBA Finals Odds
Los Angeles Clippers 7:2

San Antonio Spurs 50:1

Washington Wizards 1000:1
Cleveland Cavaliers 1000:1
Minnesota Timberwolves 1000:1
Memphis Grizzlies 1000:1
Phoenix Suns 1000:1


There truly is seven teams that have a chance to win the NBA Finals right now, and doesn’t even include the Denver Nuggets who may be the deepest team in the NBA. The futures market is held by Los Angeles right now with both the Clippers and Lakers, but the Bucks are right behind them. The second tier of teams are the Sixers and Rockets at 8:1, then the Warriors and Jazz at 12:1. The Bucks at +600 is very interesting right now, along with the Blazers at a 50:1 long shot with plenty of firepower.



NBA Team Win Totals 2019-2020 Season

Team Win Total
Milwaukee Bucks 58
Philadelphia 76ers 55.5
Houston Rockets 54.5
Utah Jazz 54.5
Los Angeles Clippers 54.5
Denver Nuggets 53
Los Angeles Lakers 50
Boston Celtics 49.5
Golden State Warriors 48.5
Indiana Pacers 47.5
San Antonio Spurs 47.5
Portland Trail Blazers 46.5
Toronto Raptors 46
Brooklyn Nets 44.5
Miami Heat 44
Orlando Magic 42.5
Dallas Mavericks 41.5
New Orleans Pelicans 38.5
Sacramento Kings 38.5
Detroit Pistons 38
Atlanta Hawks 36
Minnesota Timberwolves 35.5
Chicago Bulls 33.5
Oklahoma City Thunder 31.5
Phoenix Suns 29.5
New York Knicks 27.5
Memphis Grizzlies 27.5
Washington Wizards 26.5
Cleveland Cavaliers 24.5
Charlotte Hornets 23


There are seven teams with win totals of 50 or more, with three more at just under 50. This year is expected to be full of parity in the NBA, which is something it badly needs. The Chicago Bulls’ number is very low at 33.5, as they have plenty of talent when healthy. The Golden State Warriors number has dropped a ton without Kevin Durant, and Klay Thompson is hurt. They still have Steph Curry and Draymond Green though, and added D’Angelo Russell. That is a team worth betting on, for sure.



NBA MVP ODDS: Giannis Favored To Win

Player MVP Odds
Giannis Antetokounmpo 270
Stephen Curry 500
James Harden 750
LeBron James 850
Anthony Davis 950
Kawhi Leonard 950
Nikola Jokic 1100
Joel Embiid 1600
Paul George 1600
Russell Westbrook 2300
Damian Lillard 2800
Karl-Anthony Towns 5000
Kemba Walker 5000
Kyrie Irving 5000
Luka Doncic 5000
Donovan Mitchell 8000
Andrew Wiggins 10000

DeAaron Fox 10000
DeMar DeRozan 10000
Derrick Rose 10000
Devin Booker 10000
Gordon Hayward 10000
Jayson Tatum 10000
Jimmy Butler 10000
Jrue Holiday 10000
Kristaps Porzingis 10000
Kyle Lowry 10000
LaMarcus Aldridge 10000
Lonzo Ball 10000
Nikola Vucevic 10000
Pascal Siakam 10000
Rudy Gobert 10000
Trae Young 10000
Victor Oladipo 10000
Zach Lavine 10000
Zion Williamson 10000


The MVP race is a very interesting one this year, because James Harden and Russell Westbrook are on the same team. That hurts both of their chances, but also helps Giannis Antetokounmpo in a repeat if he continues to grow. +270 isn’t a ton of value for MVP, but he’s likely the best bet along with a +850 LeBron James or a +1600 Joel Embiid.



Rookie of the Year Futures

Player ROY Odds
Zion Williamson -150
Ja Morant 400
RJ Barrett 450
Darius Garland 1400
Michael Porter Jr. 1400
Coby White 2000
Jarrett Culver 2000
DeAndre Hunter 2000
Rui Hachimura 3000
Nassir Little 3300
Cam Reddish 3300
Romeo Langford 5000
PJ Washington 5000
Ignas Brazdeikis 6000
Sekou Doumbouya 7500
Jaxson Hayes 7500
Bol Bol 7500
Brandon Clarke 7500
Nickeil Alexander-Walker 7500
Goga Bitadze 10000
Kevin Porter Jr. 10000
Tyler Herro 10000
Cameron Johnson 10000
Ty Jerome 10000
Keldon Johnson 15000


Zion Williamson is the heavy favorite here, and rightfully so. With that being said, there is certainly some value in Ja Morant who should play heavy minutes and will have an important role right away. RJ Barrett is in a similar boat and could lead the Knicks in scoring in his rookie season. While there isn’t value in the favorite, two smaller bets on Morant and Barrett are solid.



NBA 6th Man Futures Odds

Player Sixth Man Odds
Lou Williams 170
Spencer Dinwiddie 700
Montrezl Harrell 950
Terrence Ross 950
Eric Gordon 1400
Jerami Grant 1400
Bobby Portis 1700
Derrick Rose 1700
Dennis Schroder 2000
JJ Redick 2000
Kelly Oubre Jr 2000
Bogdan Bogdanovic 2600
Jordan Clarkson 3300
Jabari Parker 5000
Rodney Hood 5000
Serge Ibaka 5000
Seth Curry 5000
Tyus Jones 5000
Emmanuel Mudiay 6500
James Ennis 6500
Justin Holiday 6500
Marcus Smart 6500
Mikal Bridges 6500
Patty Mills 6500
Anfernee Simons 10000
Austin Rivers 10000
Jake Layman 10000
Meyers Leonard 10000
Pat Connaughton 10000
Quinn Cook 10000


Lou Williams is the overwhelming favorite, but Spencer Dinwiddie and Montrezl Harrell are interesting as well. A dark horse for the award could be Derrick Rose, who could end up playing plenty of minutes for the Pistons as he could be a big upgrade offensively. 

The NBA season is a fun ride, and betting on futures just makes it that much more interesting. You can also bet on who wins each conference, defensive player of the year, individual props, NBA leaders and more!
