Updated NBA and NHL Futures Prices – VSiN Exclusive News – News

With the world of sports taking a collective pause to stand up against social injustice, bettors are left wondering what to do with their downtime. Ever since the return of major sports in late July, we’ve been inundated with action on a daily basis. For a month straight, it has been a rollercoaster of non-stop sweats starting at noon and going until midnight. Suddenly, we once again find ourselves searching for action. 

One benefit from this pause is the ability to reassess the futures market and look for value. 

When betting futures, one important variable to remember is liquidity. Futures should be handled differently from your daily individual betting. You should be extra selective and make sure not to bet too many futures so that you tie up your bankroll on a bunch of long term plays that will take weeks or months to cash. You would hate to bet so many futures that you leave yourself without enough money to spend when games return. Instead, look at futures as a way to pick your spots and use them as a nice cherry on top to pad your bankroll. 

The other advantage to betting futures is setting yourself up for a hedging opportunity. For example, if you bet the Celtics to win the NBA title, of course you are rooting for Boston to win it all. However, in reality you only need them to make it to the Eastern Conference finals or NBA finals. That way you can start to hedge your bets by betting the opponent in order to guarantee yourself a profit.
