The DraftKings Sportsbook offers an extensive menu of bets you can place on the NBA this season, both for upcoming and in-play games, as well as futures offered in pre-season and in-season. Let’s review the markets offered.
All odds provided by DraftKings Sportsbook and all odds are subject to change.
This is where you will find the betting lines for upcoming games. You’ll find the lines for games that day, but also potentially some games the next day, and sometimes even further into the future (Christmas Day games). You will also see tabs for betting on halves, quarters and team totals.
The focal point in the futures tab is usually the odds on each team to win the championship, win their conference, and win their division. But beyond that, you can bet on the final split positions for each team and the exact results as to how each split finishes top to bottom. If you have faith in a team, but don’t think they can actually make the NBA Finals, you can also bet on teams to reach a Conference Finals. You can also bet on an even more extreme end result.
This is where you’ll find over/under win totals, as well as YES/NO options on each team to make the playoffs. You can also bet on alternative team win totals, as well as head-to-head win totals between two different teams. There are also more unique sections showing exact win totals, most regular season wins, most regular season wins during the All-Star break, and longest winning streak of the season.
Pretty standard tab here to vote on all NBA awards. Awards include MVP, Rookie of the Year, Most Improved Player, Coach of the Year, 6th Man, and Defensive Player of the Year. A fairly unique new feature is the ability to bet on which players will be named to the All-NBA First Team.
This section is entirely dedicated to LeBron James, who is on course to become the NBA’s all-time leading scorer. You can bet on when, where and how LeBron will break the record.
This is a single tab offering different betting combinations for each team throughout the season. The 30 teams have a handful of offers, pending popularity. For example, you can bet on Jayson Tatum to average 28+ PPG and the Celtics to win their division at +370.
This section gives bettors the ability to bet over/under the standings for each team in their conference. If you want to get more aggressive, you can place bets on teams to finish in an exact seed.
This tab offers over/under bets on player stat categories, as well as the ability to bet on which player leads certain stat categories. You can also place bets on select head-to-head players throughout the season.
Gambling accessories bring us back to betting on specific games. The opening night matches are already available. You can bet races at 10, 15, 20 points and above in each quarter.
