As the Cavaliers head into training camp, here are some potential wagering options regarding future prices, season-win totals, and a player prop.
Another season of the NBA is about to begin… I can’t believe how much buzz there is surrounding the Cleveland Cavaliers right now! “The Land” is hoping to reassert its relevance in the postseason by assembling a talented group of up-and-coming players, led by the significant acquisition of star Donovan Mitchell over the summer.
If you are interested in placing a wager on the Cavaliers, the following information will provide you with the most up-to-date wagering options regarding win totals, futures, and player props:
The Odds Of Winning The Nba Title Are +3300
At OKBET Sportsbook, Cleveland has a 33/1 chance of winning the Larry O’Brien, which places them as the 13th highest wager on the board. To put that into perspective, they are priced at the same level as the Minnesota Timberwolves, and they are slightly higher than the New Orleans Pelicans.
The following teams are considered to be among the top favorites: Boston (+500), Golden State (+600), Milwaukee (+650), Los Angeles Clippers (+700), Brooklyn (+750), and Phoenix (+800).
*NOTE: There is a steeper drop from those top-tier squads to the next level, which has teams like the Lakers, Heat, and Sixers all at roughly +1400. This is due to the fact that there are fewer teams in the next level.
The ODDS Of Winning The Eastern Conference Are 1 In 1800
At the moment, J.B. Bickerstaff’s group has odds of 18/1 to win the Eastern Conference. This is despite the fact that teams like Boston (+275), Milwaukee (+325), Brooklyn (+350), Philadelphia (+750), and Miami (+850) are all listed ahead of Cleveland in the standings.
*NOTE: Since the Cleveland Cavaliers won their three consecutive titles between 2016 and 2018, the Eastern Conference has been represented in the NBA Finals by four different teams.
The Probability Of Winning The Central Division Is +275
Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks are deserving of their -250 odds status as heavy favorites in this game. The Cleveland Cavaliers are currently in a strong second place, which is followed by the formidable Chicago Bulls (+650), which is then followed by onlookers Detroit (+1500) and Indiana (+25000).
*NOTE: For purposes of illustration, a wager of $100 placed on the Cavaliers would result in a payout of $275. Feel like taking a chance? If you bet that thousand dollars on the Pacers, you could win twenty-five thousand dollars!
Regular-Season Win Total (Over/Under 47.5)
The opening line for the Cavaliers, who finished the previous season with a record of 44-38, was 46.5, but it was quickly moved up a full game by the betting public. In addition to that, at approximately -125, the odds are currently weighted slightly more heavily toward betting on the over. On the other hand, the under has about a 105 point advantage on the vig/juice (the amount a sportsbook charges to take your bet).
CHANCES OF WINNING Donovan Mitchell is the most valuable player in the NBA (his odds are +5000).
The odds for Cleveland’s newest superstar to win the league’s most prestigious individual award hover around 50/1. As a result, he is currently tied for 18th place on the list with Anthony Edwards from the state of Minnesota.
NOTE: The price of Luka Doncic (+400) is the favorite, but Joel Embiid (+500), Giannis Antetokounmpo (+525), and Kevin Durant (+900) are all close behind in terms of their respective odds.
