After an 82-game regular-season marathon that encompasses nearly six full months, the NBA postseason is here. The playoffs consist of quarterfinal, semifinal and final-round series in both the Eastern and Western Conference. The final team standing from each conference meet in the best-of-seven NBA Finals.

Prior to the start of the postseason, New Jersey bettors can place futures wagers on a variety of playoff-related outcomes.

NBA futures bets function like futures bets in other sports. They’re typically based on an end-of-season outcome. Futures bets are usually made available on both the team- and player-level.

Prior to the start of a season, team-level futures could include a wager on the minimum number of wins a team will win in that season or whether a team will win its division or conference.

Player-level futures include whether a player will win the MVP, Rookie of the Year or Sixth Man of the Year awards, for example.  Other player-level futures are based on whether a player will reach certain benchmarks in common statistical categories such as points, three-point shots, rebounds or assists for the season.

Where do I find futures bets in an online sportsbook?

In an online sportsbook, available futures wagers are typically found under their own tab as a subcategory of wagers available for a particular sport. Like the odds for other bet types, futures bets are typically labeled with a number that has a “plus” or “minus” sign next to it.

In the case of futures bets, a “minus” sign would be placed next to a team or player that has a higher probability of reaching the statistical goal. Teams or players with a “plus” sign are considered by oddsmakers to have a lesser chance of reaching that goal. The higher the number next to the plus sign signifies the lower the probability the team or player achieves it.

For example, the Golden State Warriors, defending NBA champions, have had a “minus” sign next to their odds of winning a third consecutive championship since prior to the season. When the playoffs began they were listed as “-210” in terms of their odds of emerging from the upcoming postseason as the top team. That signifies that a bettor would have to wager $210 to win $100 if he or she was putting money on the Warriors winning it all.

It’s also important to note that futures odds for both players and teams can certainly fluctuate throughout the course of a season.

Say a Warriors star such as Stephen Curry or Kevin Durant would have suffered a season-ending injury at some point during the regular season. Golden State’s odds of winning the championship would have naturally decreased dramatically as a result.

In such an instance, bettors may have seen those futures odds go from -210 to +210, for example. That means that a bettor still wishing to place a wager on Golden State to win at that point would have instead won $210 for every $100 bet, instead of having to wager $210 to win $100.
