The 2021 NBA season is now underway, and online sportsbooks are delivering early Christmas presents in the form of future odds, props, and specials.
Current NBA standings are pretty much what you would expect, with the top teams (Nets, Suns, Lakers, Bucks) consisting of teams that made the playoffs last year and teams that currently lead the odds boards. With the season at approximately 25 games in, there is still time for any team to turn things around or drop off.
Online Basketball Futures
Sportsbook future odds typically offer great value for people who like to bet on NBA basketball. A futures bet is betting on things that will likely happen in the future, such as winning the NBA championship, winning the conference, or winning the division.

NBA Props & Specials
When betting on NBA props and specials, those wagers consist of anything that does not directly affect the game’s outcome, such as margin of victory, off-field antics, triple-doubles, and more.
