How the NBA Playoffs work

The 2023 – 2024 NBA regular season will consist of 82 games for each team with the top six teams in each conference earning an automatic playoff berth. Teams that finish in the 7-10 spots in each conference will participate in the Play-In tournament.

The 9th seed in each conference will have a chance to play their way into the playoffs by beating the 8th seed twice in a row. The 8th seed will have to win one of those games to advance. The scenario is the same for the 10th seed and 7th seed in each conference if the 10th seed qualifies.

The NBA will then run best-of-seven series formats for the quarterfinal, semifinal and finals in both the Eastern and Western Conference.

NBA Finals odds

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 capture 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, 3-point shots, rebounds or assists for the season.

You are also able to bet on NBA games every day during the regular season. View NBA odds for every game here.

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.

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