Nets Have Become Popular Pick With Gamblers To Win 19-20 Finals
27th May, 19:35Sports betting organizations have seen a spike in bets for the Brooklyn Nets to win the NBA Finals if the season resumes this summer.
Since the season was suspended, only the Los Angeles Lakers have had more bets placed on them to win the title.
With the season delayed, there's a chance that the Nets could get both Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant back from their respective injuries.
"It's kind of a speculative bet, but nothing compares to this situation," said Dave Mason, the sportsbook brand manager at BetOnline.ag.
When the NBA season was suspended in March, the Nets' odds to win the championship were dismal at 150-1 on BetOnline.ag, 300-1 on DraftKings and 250-1 at the South Point in Vegas.
Brooklyn's odds to win the title have changed considerably to 75-1 (BetOnline.ag) and 60-1 (DraftKings).
Credible reporters have been consistent with their contention that Durant will not return for the 19-20 season under any circumstance.
