Betting futures is an investment over time. If you are going to jump in and
make the investment then you must realize that you will most likely be waiting
for six months until the season is over. Now most sportsbooks offer ongoing
futures, they offer the same futures that was offered at the start of the
season, all season long, the odds, of course, will change. In the case of the
Las Vegas Golden Knights starting out as 500/1 underdogs, this number quickly
changed. It dropped to 250/1. 125/1 75/1 and eventually came all the way down
to a 7/2 betting odd. Obviously, thatís how this works. A future bet is just
that, usually a bet that you make at the beginning of the season.
Example: The New England Patriots. With Tom Brady at the helm
and Bill Belichick on the sidelines, the Patriots will always be a heavy
favorite to win the Super Bowl. Sure enough, the futures odds are out for the
2018/2019 season and New England leads the pack at 6/1. This is how much
respect they get after all these years and even after a Super Bowl loss to the
Eagles in February of 2018. This is a very obvious bet and probably a good
investment. The Philadelphia Eagles follow the Patriots at 8/1. One would have
to think that this is also a great bet.
Another obvious futures bet would be the Golden State Warriors. They easily won
the 2018 NBA Championship and undressed Cleveland doing it. The Warriors look
to bring close to the entire existing roster, back for the 18/19 season. Of
course they are going to be the heavy favorite and they are, at 6/5 The
Cavaliers on the other hand, look as if they will be losing their star in
LeBron James, to free agency, if this happens it will cripple the teamís
chances of having a good season, let alone winning anything. They are 25/1.
There are other sports that must be handicapped on some level if
the bettor cares at all about having a real chance to win. Such as golf or
NASCAR. You must know the drivers and you must know the golfers. From one
tournament to the next and from one race to the next. What are the chances and
why? Why would you bet them? These circumstances are when it really pays off to
make more than just a wild guess
