Handicapping 2019 NBA Gambling Future Lines
While the Warriors deal with some injuries and some apparent turmoil amongst their players, there may be an opening for a new champion to emerge.
Here’s a look at three favorites, three longshots, and three teams from the middle of the pack, with a recommended play from each category:
2019 NBA Gambling Future Lines: Golden State Warriors -160
There’s a little trouble in Warriors land, which has to have futures bettors taking another look at some teams that may be able to take advantage at a favourable number, given Golden State’s overbearing number.
There’s no question that this is still the team to beat, but the Warriors feel more vulnerable now than they have at any point the past four seasons.
2019 NBA Gambling Future Lines: Toronto Raptors +800
The East still feels wide open with LeBron James moving out West, but the Raptors have emerged as the clear favourite. If they can keep Kawhi Leonard on the court, they’ll have the best player on the floor throughout the Eastern Conference playoffs.
2019 NBA Gambling Future Lines: Boston Celtics +900
The Celtics did so much with a limited roster a year ago that’s it’s got to be concerning watching the team struggle the way it has this year. Even so, Brad Stevens is a tremendous coach, and the talent is certainly there for this team to turn things around come the postseason.
The play: Raptors +800
2019 NBA Gambling Future Lines: Milwaukee Bucks +1500
We’ve been waiting for Giannis to put together that magical season and thrust himself into the MVP conversation, and this looks like it’s going to be the one. He’s surrounded by some solid talent, and has shown he can put this team on his back and carry it to the top of the East.
2019 NBA Gambling Future Lines: Philadelphia 76ers +2000
The addition of Jimmy Butler gives the Sixers the best combo of three stars in the East.
There are definitely still some concerns about roster construction. They don’t have the kind of outside shooting they’ll need to go far in the postseason, though, but that’s something they might be able to address at the trade deadline.
2019 NBA Gambling Future Lines: Los Angeles Lakers +2500
It’s easy to look at the flaws of this team and write them off, but at the same time, LeBron hasn’t missed the Finals in forever. The path will certainly be more difficult this year, but it’s really tough to overlook the best player in basketball.
The play: Bucks +1500
2019 NBA Gambling Future Lines: Denver Nuggets +12000
There isn’t a lot of star power on this roster, and you’re not going to want to buy any of their jerseys, but the Nuggets have assembled a really strong team. They’ve flirted with the top spot in the Western Conference, and could find themselves seeded favourably come playoff time.
2019 NBA Gambling Future Lines: New Orleans Pelicans +12000
The Pelicans have improved this season despite the loss of DeMarcus Cousins. Anthony Davis is establishing himself as a top-five talent in the NBA, and his supporting cast is playing as well as we’ve seen it in his time there.
2019 NBA Gambling Future Lines: Indiana Pacers +12500
The Pacers are a bit of a forgotten team in the wide open East. We’ve already seen them slotted in to a top-2 spot in the Eastern Conference on the back of a strong start.
If they can continue to develop in the right direction and maybe add a piece or two at the trade deadline, and couple that with a favourable path in the Eastern Conference playoffs, and this could be a very dangerous team come playoff time.
The play: Pacers +125
