Brooklyn Nets Odds, Betting Guide & Picks for 2019-20
The Brooklyn Nets hit the free-agency jackpot over the summer, landing both Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving on max deals. Durant won’t play this season but Irving will replace D’Angelo Russell and keep the Nets in playoff contention. They should compete for a top-four seed in the East, and if their young players progress, they could contend in the East.
Here are the key odds available and how you should bet them:
Nets Win-Total Betting
The Line: 45.5 with PointsBet
The Nets were a pleasant surprise in 2019, making the leap from 28 to 42 victories. Though Durant is out, they’re still a better team swapping Russell for Irving. DeAndre Jordan could be an X-factor, and they have an excellent bench that should win them some close games.
The Bet: They should just barely get over this win total.
Nets Atlantic Division Odds
The Line: +500 with 888sport
The Nets are certainly talented enough to win the Atlantic, but they still feel a class below the 76ers. It would take an MVP-type season from Irving and for the bench to be one of the league’s best for them to surpass both the 76ers and Celtics.
The Bet: It’s possible, but there are probably better bets out there at those odds.
Nets Eastern Conference Odds
The Line: +1200 with FanDuel
Irving is no stranger to lifting a team in the postseason, and the Nets have experience from last year’s Round 1 matchup with Philadelphia. They should make noise in the playoffs, and their bench and coaching could carry them.
The Bet: Though it’d be an upset if they won the East, these are solid odds for a team this talented and definitely should be strongly considered.
Nets NBA Title Odds
The Line: +2500 with SugarHouse
This bet will look a lot better (and the odds will be much shorter) next season when Kevin Durant is healthy. It’s tough to see the Nets being able to hang with the top guns in the West even if they got there.
The Bet: There is better value on the board at those odds. But in 2021? Check back with us.
Best Nets Player Prop Bets
Dinwiddie had a breakout 2019 campaign in averaging 16.8 points and 5.6 assists in 28.1 minutes. He should have an even larger role this season, and his numbers have improved across the board each of his five NBA seasons. Brooklyn will count on him to do heavy lifting on the second unit.
The Bet: He’s a solid choice for Sixth Man of the Year consideration.
