NBA Futures Odds: Toronto Raptors 40/1
It feels like the only team that can compete with the Cavaliers in the East will be the Toronto Raptors.
The Raptors sit just 3.0 games back with an outside chance to steal home court advantage down the stretch of the season. Regardless if they do or not, they have had an impressive season and really separated themselves from the rest of the Eastern Conference.
Toronto went through a streak of winning 11 straight to put them within striking distance of the Cavaliers.
At 40/1 this team is certainly worth a look. The Raptors offer bettors many hedging options and to be fair, this team does have the talent to potentially pull off an upset or two in the playoffs.
NBA Futures Odds: Chicago Bulls 50/1
Chicago was picked by some in the preseason to finish either number 1 or 2 in the Eastern Conference.
Now, they have to worry about just making the playoffs. Currently, they are battling a compliment of injuries to many veterans. One of those injuries includes Jimmy Butler.
Chicago offers value here because all they have to do is make the playoffs and they have the veteran leadership to really put together a run. With Butler returning by seasons end, along with Rose, Gasol, and Noah, this team has been there before.
This really gives them an edge on teams and if they can win a round or two, hedging options come into play.
NBA Futures Odds: Miami Heat 75/1
The Heat, like the Bulls, have the veterans to lead this team on a deep run. However, also like the Bulls, they continue to battle many injuries.
Chris Bosh, Dwayne Wade, and Luol Deng lead this team and they’ve really stepped up as of late.
Bettors beware though, this team will be in a battle to the finish to get into a playoff spot. If they can avoid the 7 or 8 seed, they certainly have a chance to pull off an upset in the first round. In fact, they still have a chance at home court in the first round.
Watch out for Miami, especially at these odds.
NBA Futures Odds: Atlanta Hawks 80/1
Last season Atlanta set a franchise record with 60 wins and grabbed the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference. However, after making it to the Eastern Conference Finals, the Hawks were swept by the Cavaliers.
The Hawks were at the center of many trade deadline rumors, but decided to stand pat and make a push at the postseason.
Atlanta has the depth, and length to compete and matchup with teams. With Horford and Millsap down low, along with Teague and Korver outside, this team has the potential to be a serious threat.
NBA Futures Odds: Portland Trail Blazers 750/1
Yes, it’s foolish to think this team will win the Championship. After seeing many key pieces leave this past offseason, which includes LaMarcus Aldridge, the Trail Blazers were set for a rebuilding year.
However, they have flipped the script and gotten back into the race with solid play from Damien Lillard, CJ McCollum, and the bench.
The bench has been the key for Portland as of late. The Trail Blazers have needed more than just the two to step up all season long and finally the bench is producing. If they can stay consistent and keep this going, there is a chance for Portland to not just make the playoffs, but also pull off an upset in a very crowded West.
