NBA Sportsbooks Offer Several Ways To Gamble On The Finals

NBA Finals iconThe NBA Finals are heading into game four, with the Denver Nuggets leading the series (2 -1) over the Miami Heat. 

In game three, Nuggets star Nikola Jokic made history with the first 30-20-10 in the history of the Finals. Heat star Jimmy Butler also had a good night, but it was obvious that his team is struggling to contain Nuggets center Nikola Jokic. 

To make the series even more exciting, many spectators are betting on the competition with game lines, futures, and proposition bets. Game lines for the fourth matchup are already live, and the odds predict that Denver will reign supreme again. Below are the current game lines for game four of the NBA Finals from Bovada’s online sportsbook.

Who Is Favored To Win The NBA Finals (Future Odds)?

After a dominant win in game three of the Finals, the Denver Nuggets hold their odds and are still favored to win the series. The Nuggets have dominated the 2023 NBA post-season with an overall record of 9-1 when playing at home. 

The Miami Heat have taken the long route to the NBA Finals after losing their first play-in game to the Atlanta Hawks; they went on to qualify for the playoffs with a second play-in win over the Chicago Bulls. After their rough start, the Heat knocked out the Bucks, Knicks, and the Celtics en route to the Finals.

Proposition Odds Explained

Proposition odds do not concern the direct outcome of the competition. Professional bettors often use these odds to hedge their other bets on the game. 

Proposition odds, aka props, can include player props, team props, off-field antics, and more. Popular USA online sportsbooks also offer a Prop Builder tool where players can create or select their prop bets. Prop builder tools also offer parlay bets where bettors can win a lot of money betting on multiple odds to hit.
