The Best Sportsbooks For Brooklyn Nets Finals Odds

DraftKings NY+425
FanDuel NY+600
BetMGM NY+550

Brooklyn was the top team coming into the season with odds around +200, but that has dipped since. Golden State, Phoenix, Milwaukee, and Philadelphia have emerged around them. DraftKings still has the worst odds available for the Nets at +425, but many other sportsbooks are bumping them to +600 or higher.

Where Can You Bet On The Brooklyn Nets In New York?

Mobile sports betting is now live, and the New York State Gaming Commission has given the green light to seven operators. Some of these sportsbooks have already established themselves at physical retail locations as well. The available sportsbooks take bets on the Brooklyn Nets and some offer a more expansive betting market than others. For example, differences in live in-game betting, player props, futures bets, and so on.

Online Sportsbooks

Below are three of the more popular options for New Yorkers to be excited about. These sportsbook apps are now live.

  • DraftKings NY – New Yorkers may be familiar with the DraftKings brand due to its popularity as a daily fantasy sports (DFS) platform. DraftKings has leveraged that strength to become a major name in online sports betting as well. Users love the DraftKings Sportsbook app as it’s generally considered the gold standard of the industry.
  • Caesars Sportsbook NY – Caesars Sportsbook is backed by Caesars Entertainment, so it brings that first-class reputation to its sports betting apps. Bettors will find a user-friendly app and some of the best odds. Caesars Sportsbook also offers a generous welcome bonus you won’t want to miss.
  • FanDuel Sportsbook NY – Much like DraftKings, FanDuel has gone from a leader in DFS to a top online sportsbook brand since sports betting has become legalized across the US. FanDuel has recently made a push with its endorsement deals and you’ll find promoted bets and odds boosts from sports and media figures like Pat McAfee and Charles Barkley.
  • BetMGM – BetMGM brings with it a stellar reputation and is one of the most trusted names in the sports betting industry. Having been involved in gambling and casinos well before the recent boom, New York bettors can feel very confident in using BetMGM as their sportsbook of choice. Where BetMGM excels over the competition is in their ongoing promotions and bonuses for existing customers.

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. How well each team is (or isn’t) playing, how the teams match up in terms of their strengths and weaknesses, key injuries, and a more recent consideration – players out due to COVID protocols. The latter has been a particular issue for the Brooklyn Nets with Kyrie Irving unable to play all season at home. 

Below are examples of two popular types of wagers you can place on the Brooklyn Nets and what each means.

Brooklyn Nets 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 – means they’re the favorites and the higher the number, the heavier favorites they are. A + next to odds means that team is the underdog. In this example, you would have to bet $230 to win $100.

Brooklyn Nets 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. 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.

Brooklyn Nets Futures Odds

Futures bets are exactly what they sound like. These are wagers you’re placing which the results won’t be known until later in the season. 

Let’s take a look at the Brooklyn Nets’ futures odds for winning the Atlantic Division, Eastern conference, and NBA finals for bettors in NY.

SportsbookBrooklyn Nets to win the Atlantic DivisionBrooklyn Nets to win the Eastern ConferenceBrooklyn Nets to win the NBA Finals

FanDuel has the most favorable odds for New York bettors looking to place a wager on these Brooklyn Nets’ future wagers. After a lengthy losing streak, the Nets are in a vulnerable position to win the Atlantic Division, which is why the odds are larger when compared to winning the Eastern Conference Championship or taking the championship.

If you think the Nets can rebound in the final third of the regular season and take the Atlantic Division, then this is a good time to take them. Going into the All-Star break, FanDuel has the best odds for bettors in terms of the Nets winning the Eastern Conference and the NBA Finals.

Brooklyn Nets 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
    • James Harden 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 threes will be made in a playoff series
