Bet NBA with William Hill, America’s #1 sportsbook.
After a thrilling week of the NBA Playoffs, we get a rest tonight with no Conference Finals games on the docket.
But with the final four teams solidified, let’s take a look at updated NBA championship futures as well as notable futures wagers placed on the Bucks, Suns, Clippers and Hawks throughout the season.
The Bucks are the current NBA title favorite at William Hill at +105, followed by the Suns at +150. The Clippers are next at +700, while the Hawks are the biggest longshots at 11/1.
When William Hill Nevada first released its 2020-21 NBA championship futures on Oct. 12, the Clippers had the second-lowest title odds at +500—which only trailed the Lakers at +400. After the Warriors at +700, the Bucks were also close behind at +800. The Suns and Hawks opened at 50/1 and 150/1 respectively.
The Bucks’ highest title odds at any point were 16/1 on June 10, when they were trailing 2-0 to the Nets in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. The Clippers were at 17/1 back on May 28-29, and were at 16/1 on June 12 down 2-0 to the Jazz in the Western Conference Semifinals.
The other two teams possessed much longer odds at certain points of the season. The Suns were at 50/1 when their NBA title futures were released on Oct. 12, Feb. 8-Feb. 15 and Feb. 23-Feb. 24. Meanwhile, the Hawks were displayed at 500/1 from Feb. 28 to Mar. 20.
With some juicy prices available on these teams throughout the year, there are some William Hill bettors who are close to cashing monster tickets on conference and NBA championship futures.
The largest potential payout remaining is one Nevada bettor putting down $5,000 on Hawks to win the title at 100/1 for a possible total winnings of $500,000. Other notable Hawks bets and total potential payouts include $5,000 on Hawks 60/1 (title) for $305,000, $400 on Hawks 200/1 (conference) for $80,400 and $125 on Hawks 500/1 (title) for $62,625.
The biggest futures wager still alive, though, is on the Clippers. Another Nevada bettor put $40,000 on Clippers +325 to win the Western Conference for a total potential payout of $170,000.
