- Legal sportsbooks have +650 odds for both the New York Knicks and the Charlotte Hornets to make the 2022 NBA postseason, after missing in 2021.
- There are +4000 odds for the Celtics winning the NBA Finals and Luka Doncic winning the regular season MVP award both during the 2022-23 season.
BOSTON – The NBA regular season is set to kick off mid-October with the Celtics hosting the Sixers and there are plenty of future parlay wagers that can be placed before the season officially begins.
Most of these future props offer high payouts on groups of teams making or missing the playoffs, as well as championship and MVP parlays combos.
There are legal NBA betting odds for longshot parlays that involve teams that did not make the playoffs last year punching in a spot for 2022-23.
- Knicks and Hornets to Both Make Playoffs +650
Making the Play-In-Tournament in 2021, the Hornets placed tenth in the East with a record of 43-39 and the Knicks were right behind them at 11th, going 37-45. For +650 odds, these two teams could make the next step in 2022 with the Hornets having a healthy LaMelo Ball and Gordon Hayward.
The New York Knicks traded away Kemba Walker and his $9.1 million owed and signed Jalen Brunson to a four-year contract during the offseason. Brunson averaged 21.6 points, four rebounds, and three assists per game during the 2021 postseason in Dallas.
- Nets, Grizzlies, Mavericks, Bulls, and Lakers to All Make Playoffs +250
Although this wager has five moving pieces to hit, all of these teams are preseason favorites to make to the 2022-23 postseason. Between Zach LaVine’s extension in Chicago and the Nets keeping Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, none of these teams should struggle to find a playoff spot.
With two competing in the East and three in the West, this future parlay prop, that is offered at legal sites with sports betting, has plenty of room for teams to struggle at any point in the season and still end up in the postseason.
While not offering as high of a payout, these types of future wagers hold a lot less risk than betting on one team to win the 2022-23 NBA Finals.
Preseason NBA Finals Odds
- Boston Celtics +600
- Golden State Warriors +600
- Los Angeles Clippers +600
- Brooklyn Nets +700
- Memphis Grizzlies +2500
- Dallas Mavericks +2000
- Chicago Bulls +6000
- Los Angeles Lakers +1800
After a close race in 2021 for the regular season MVP, there are future parlay props that connect championship futures and award futures.
- Celtics Win Finals and Luka Doncic Wins MVP +4000
After Doncic put up MVP numbers in 2021 averaging 28.4 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 8.7 assists per game, the Mavericks point guard is the current favorite to win regular season MVP in 2022.
2022-23 MVP Favorites
- Luka Doncic +400
- Joel Embiid +650
- Giannis Antetokounmpo +700
- Nikola Jokic +900
As the Celtics made it to the NBA Finals in 2021, the team is tied with the Warriors and the Clippers at +600 for the best odds to win the NBA Finals. This future parlay combining the Celtics Championship and Doncic’s MVP odds would result in a much bigger payout than betting on both individually.
Before anything is official, these future NBA parlays are less risky than any that involve Ime Udoka being named COY. There is a scandal surrounding Udoka that could end with a season-long suspension but he was the favorite to win the award at +600 odds before the news broke.
