NBA Win Totals 2021

Projected NBA Wins For All 30 Teams

Some books were staying away from pro basketball win total over/unders that are popular just prior to the start of each season. With uncertainties regarding COVID-19 and how many total games will be played, DraftKings Sportsbook opted to post team win percentages over total number of games won.

The sportsbooks that did post traditional win totals agreed on at least one thing: the Bucks and Lakers are the teams to beat after productive off-seasons. Milwaukee’s regular season over/under was set at 49 at PointsBet and at 50.5 at FanDuel Sportsbook. The defending champion Lakers were right behind at 48.5 and 46.5 respectively.

2021 NBA over/unders market report

Despite some major books not offering win total markets, opportunity presented itself for the sharp bettor based upon pure common sense.

The Philadelphia 76ers are making savvy pre-season bettors look smart due to their hot start. The Sixers had a win total over/under of 42.5 at FanDuel Sportsbook prior to the start of the season.

Orlando and New York are two other East teams that are outpacing their pre-season total. FD had the Magic at 30.5 victories and the Knicks at 21.4.

In the West, the Suns were a chic pick to exceed expectations and they are living up to the billing. Phoenix had an over/under of 37.5 that is looking good so far.

Remember, the NBA is planning a 72-game season, and that factors into the win total over/unders. It is important to note that COVID-19 could further mess up the 2020-21 NBA season and PointsBet has informed bettors that a minimum of 70 games will need to be played in order for wagers to be official.

How to bet NBA Futures

Futures bets are propositions, usually on how a team might fair during the season or postseason. Odds are set very early during the offseason on most sportsbooks, including the favorites to win the NBA Finals.

As of early December 2020, the LA Lakers were the favorites to win it all at +270. That means a bet of $100 would win you $270 (for a total payout of $370) if LeBron and Co. were to bring it home again.

Odds are also available on Division Winners, Conference Winners, and all of the individual Postseason Awards such as MVP, Sixth Man of the Year, and more.

When a team or player is considered likely to win an award or a division, they will be listed with negative odds. So, for example, the Miami Heat are -310 to take the Southeast Division heading into the season. It would take a bet of $310 to win $100 because Miami is such an overwhelming favorite to win a division that features the likes of the Atlanta Hawks, Orlando Magic, Washington Wizards and Charlotte Hornets.

The most important thing about futures bets is to not overreact. There is so much hype surrounding professional sports, especially after such a tumultuous offseason, that it’s important to slow down and consider the tangible impact of each player added.

Yes, the reigning NBA champion Lakers improved on paper. But with so many contenders in the field, consider the level of risk compared to the reward, as +270 odds are not that great when choosing one team out of a field of 30.

These odds are set in order to inspire action. The lines move based on how much action they get and are often an indication of where the public is leaning.

Where do I find NBA win totals in a sportsbook?

In order to find win totals on an online sportsbook, simply click the NBA tab and look for a subset labeled “Team Wins” or “Regular Season Win Totals.”

All 30 NBA teams should be listed with a proposition listed between two numbers. For example, the Atlanta Hawks proposed win total is 35.5 so that 36 wins is over and 35 wins would be under. If a book lists a team on an exact number and they hit that number, it’s a “Push” and your bet is returned.
