HOW DO I BET NBA CHAMPIONSHIP ODDS?

Sportsbooks will post odds for the NBA Finals as early as the summer before the season starts. These odds are constantly adjusted throughout the offseason as players get hurt, suspended or are traded. Once the regular season begins, title odds will change daily as teams win and lose games and as more players get hurt, suspended or traded. Sportsbook will also adjust the NBA odds based on handle and liability to certain teams.

NBA Championship odds will usually look like this:

  • Milwaukee Bucks +250

This means that on a $100 bet, you’ll stand to win $250 if the Bucks win the NBA title. If it’s close to the end of the regular season or even during the playoffs and the NBA has a very dominant team, you might see that a team is has a minus sign (-) ahead of its odds.

  • Golden State Warriors -120

This means that you would need to bet $120 to win $100 on a Warriors championship.
