NBA 2019-20 Eastern Conference Futures: Latest Odds, Trends

Following the NBA’s board of governors approved a 22-team format to resume the season in Orlando, Florida earlier in the month, William Hill re-released its 2019-20 NBA championship, Eastern Conference and Western Conference futures.

After taking a look at the latest NBA championship futures odds and trends last week, let’s shift our focus to the Eastern Conference.

The Bucks are sizable -225 chalk to represent the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals. They had opened as the 6/5 favorite, and currently have the NBA’s best record at 53-12. The Celtics have the second-lowest price at 5/1, followed by the defending champion Raptors at 6/1 and the 76ers at 17/2. 

Milwaukee also leads the way in total dollars wagered for William Hill’s 2019-20 Eastern Conference futures at 39%. That includes one Nevada bettor placing a $14,250 wager on Bucks -190 to take the East, which is the largest Eastern Conference bet taken thus far at William Hill. If Milwaukee were to reach the NBA Finals, that bettor would receive a total payout of $21,750. 

When it comes to total number of tickets, however, there are several bettors looking at other teams besides the favorite.

The Celtics are tops with 21% of the total number of tickets, with the 76ers nearby at 17%. The Bucks rank third in that department at 14%. 

The Wizards are the biggest longshots to be the 2019-20 Eastern Conference champion at 1000/1, yet they’ve still drawn a couple notable wagers. One Nevada bettor placed $200 on Wizards 1250/1 for a potential $250,200 total payout, the largest one thus far for an Eastern Conference future at William Hill. A New Jersey bettor put down $150 on Wizards 1000/1 for a potential $150,150 total payout as well. 

Some other noteworthy Eastern Conference futures bets include $2,000 on Raptors 25/1 for a potential $52,000 total payout and $1,000 on Pacers 50/1 for a potential $51,000 total payout.
