Brooklyn Nets Odds, Futures & Betting Predictions
There can only be one favorite at the start of each NBA betting season, and the Nets rightfully hold that distinction as we kick off 2021-22. With Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving leading the way, no team in the league can match what Brooklyn brings on a nightly basis.
Health will be paramount to their success in May and potentially June, but head coach Steve Nash has an embarrassment of riches to work with as they look to bring home their franchise’s first title. Let’s take a deep dive into their NBA odds and offer up our top NBA picks for the team.
Nets Win-Total Betting
If you’ve read our analysis on tips for betting win totals, you’ll know that teams in the 50s hit the under more often than not. And we’re sticking with that trend here given how injury-prone the Nets’ topline talent is and how much that affected them in last year’s postseason.
Nash will be giving his Big 3 plenty of rest during a regular season that is largely inconsequential to his veteran-laden group. The Nets will likely reach 50 wins, but all the rest they’re bound to get will keep them from topping this total at sportsbooks.
The Bet: We like the Under here at FanDuel.
Nets Division Odds
The Line: -250 at TwinSpires Sportsbook
There’s so much turmoil in Philadelphia, the Celtics are a bit of an unknown, the Knicks have a ceiling lower than Brooklyn’s floor and the Raptors are in a mini-rebuild. All that is to say: The Nets will win the Atlantic Division going away. Of all the NBA futures for division winners, this one is our favorite. No team is going to come close to what the Nets accomplish, even if they do rest some of their stars down the stretch. This is Brooklyn’s division to lose.
The Bet: Grab these odds at TwinSpires Sportsbook while you still can.
Nets Eastern Conference Odds
Brooklyn was a Kevin Durant toe away from advancing to the NBA Finals last postseason, and that was without a healthy James Harden and Kyrie Irving. The East still has its heavy hitters in Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Miami and potentially a few others. But the East is going to go through Brooklyn and, depending on their health, we wouldn’t be surprised to see a motivated Nets team run away with this conference. They’re that talented.
The Bet: Unless you think Giannis can repeat his 2021 playoff performance, the Nets are a smart play here at WynnBET.
Nets NBA Title Odds
Kevin Durant has two rings and two Finals MVPs. Kyrie Irving made one of the most clutch shots in Finals history. James Harden is arguably the greatest pure scorer in NBA history. Even the bench is better this season with additions such as LaMarcus Aldridge, Patty Mills, and Paul Millsap. Everything is in place for the Nets to compete for a championship. It will come down to health, but no team can match what they put on the floor 48 minutes a night. That’s why they are a favorite in NBA title odds at many betting sites.
Best Nets Player Prop Bets
The Line: Patty Mills, Sixth Man of the Year,
Patty Mills has never played in an offense as talented or efficient as what he’ll find in Brooklyn, and the Nets will rely often on their bench to complement their Big 3. We love the microwave scoring that Mills will inject into the Brooklyn second unit, and we think he posts career scoring numbers across the board in his new role.
The Bet: There’s a real chance Mills leads all bench players in scoring, which would put him in the driver’s seat to win this award.
