Mobile sports betting is now live, and the New York State Gaming Commission has given the green light to a number of operators. Some of these sportsbooks have already established themselves at physical retail locations as well.

Retail Sportsbooks

For those who want the excitement of placing a wager on the Brooklyn Nets in person, New York does have retail sports betting options available. Here are two sportsbooks you can visit that also have mobile options available.

  • The Lounge With Caesars Sports at Yellow Brick Road Casino
    • 800 W Genesee Street, Chittenango, NY 13037
    • Considered the largest sportsbook in New York, you’ll find a nearly 9,000-square foot lounge equipped with betting windows, kiosks, a full-service bar, and more than 30 large-screen TVs. If you really want to go all-out for a Brooklyn Nets game, they also offer  VIP “fan caves” that you can reserve.

    • This was the first sportsbook to officially open for New York bettors and while the BetRivers brand isn’t as well known as the above sportsbooks, it has been making a push in its expansion. The app is currently available in New York and it has physical retail locations in Illinois, Pennsylvania, and New York.

How Brooklyn Nets Betting Odds Are Calculated

No matter what sport you’re wagering on, sportsbooks set lines with the goal of trying to get equal action on both sides of the bet. From there, odds change based on the number of bets being placed as well as the amount of money being wagered. 

NBA odds are influenced by several factors similar to other team sports. These factors include how well each team is (or isn’t) playing, how the teams match up in terms of their strengths and weaknesses, and key injuries. Below are examples of popular types of wagers you can place on the Brooklyn Nets and what each means.

Moneyline Odds

For moneyline bets, you’re simply picking who you think will win the game you are betting on. Let’s say the Brooklyn Nets have odds of -230 on the moneyline. The minus sign (-) means they’re the favorites, and the higher the number, the heavier favorites they are. In this example, you would have to bet $230 to win $100. A plus sign (+) next to odds means that the team is the underdog, and the number represents how much a successful bet of $100 would win. For example, if a team is a +200 underdog, then you would win $200 on a bet of $100.

Point Spread Odds

When you’re betting on point spreads, the team you’re wagering on has to cover the number of points in the bet. For example, if you were betting on the Brooklyn Nets and they had a point spread of -11, this means they have to win by more than 11 points for you to win your wager. If the Nets win by exactly 11, it’s considered a “push” and your bet should be returned to you. If they win by less than 11 points or lose the game outright, you would lose whatever amount you bet to the sportsbook.

Futures Odds

Futures bets are exactly what they sound like. These are wagers you’re placing for which the results won’t be known until later in the season. The most prominent NBA futures bet is who will win the NBA Finals. Other futures bets include division and conference winners and individual award winners like the NBA MVP. 

Prop Bets

Prop bets are wagers you can place that aren’t necessarily tied to the outcome of a game. Each sport has its own set of prop bets you can wager on, and the amount and depth of props available vary across sportsbooks. Prop bets can be placed on a game-by-game basis as well as for an entire season.

  • Brooklyn Nets prop bet examples:
    • Kevin Durant over/under X amount of points
    • Kyrie Irving over/under X amount of points, rebounds, and assists
    • Nets over/under X amount of points scored in the second quarter
    • Nets player to win MVP
    • How many 3-pointers will be made in a playoff series
