Handicapping 2020 NBA Gambling Future Lines
The NBA’s restart goes down this week as teams in the playoff hunt prior to the pause will resume play in the bubble in Orlando. With tip-off fast approaching, bettors looking to identify value on the futures board must act fast.
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:
2020 NBA Championship Futures Betting Lines: Los Angeles Lakers +250
Go back pre- The Decision and pre- super teams and an NBA squad with LeBron James and Anthony Davis would be such a dominant force.
In today’s NBA, the Lakers are one of a handful of teams with a legitimate shot at the title this year. Keeping both of those stars healthy will be critical.
2020 NBA Championship Futures Betting Lines: Los Angeles Clippers +300
The Clippers aren’t built to withstand the absence of a key player, so they’ll need Lou Williams back in the fold as soon as possible.
It sounds like that will be the case, but this really highlights the risk that comes with backing such a top-heavy Clippers team whose star player has been the face of load management.
2020 NBA Championship Futures Betting Lines: Milwaukee Bucks +300
It might be a different story if the Bucks played out West, but the team is the clear favorite in the East, and that they have a much smoother path to the Finals makes them a safer bet than the Los Angeles teams. This is a roster that had a 2-0 lead in the East Finals a year ago even with Kawhi on the opposing team.
The play: Milwaukee Bucks +300
2020 NBA Championship Futures Betting Lines: Houston Rockets +1800
It sounds like Russell Westbrook will be healthy by the time the games start counting. He and James Harden will try to do what they couldn’t in Oklahoma City – and what Harden hasn’t been able to do on his own in Houston – and that’s prove Daryl Morey’s system can win the big game.
2020 NBA Championship Futures Betting Lines: Philadelphia 76ers +2000
Upon arriving in Orlando and beginning training camp there the 76ers began testing Ben Simmons out at power forward, and that could be the key to unlocking this roster.
Simmons’s difficulties shooting from distance are well-documented, so stretching the floor out with another shooter will better acclimate Philadelphia to today’s game.
2020 NBA Championship Futures Betting Lines: Toronto Raptors +2000
The Raptors remain the defending champions, and many of the key faces from last year’s title run are still around. The East is certainly the easier path to the Finals than the West, and the Raptors have already shown they can knock off the 76ers and Bucks in the postseason.
The Raptors have found their success the past two years behind head coach Nick Nurse’s ability to pull all the right levers and push all the right buttons with his roster. There could be some big names bowing out of this tournament due to injury or illness and no team is better-built to withstand key absences than the Raptors, who use their bench better than any club.
The play: Raptors +2000
2020 NBA Championship Futures Betting Lines: Dallas Mavericks +4000
The Mavericks are built different than many other clubs and in an era when bigs who can put the ball on the floor while also stretching it out are so highly coveted, Dallas has a pair of those “unicorn” types. Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis each have the ability to take over a game.
2020 NBA Gambling Future Lines: Miami Heat +4000
Arriving in the NBA bubble in Orlando and getting back into a competitive state of mind after a four-month layoff is a tall order, and every GM in the Association would like to have a guy like Jimmy Butler in the locker room to help get players’ heads on straight. Miami’s overachieved all season long and will be a tough opponent once the playoffs begin.
2020 NBA Gambling Future Lines: Utah Jazz +6000
So much more was expected of the Jazz this season. Their roster’s so talented, but it hasn’t really translated into success on the court at a time when the top of the conference is so loaded. Losing their home court advantage in the bubble will hurt Utah more than any other team.
The play: Heat +4000
