We are months away from the beginning of the 2021-22 NBA season, but there is already an intriguing prop on WynnBET for the NBA Finals matchup next season.
WynnBET has the odds of the Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets meeting in the NBA Finals set at +320. The Lakers are +375 to win the NBA Finals after acquiring Russell Westbrook prior to last week’s NBA draft, and the Nets are the favorites at +225.
There is also an option to bet on the Lakers and Milwaukee Bucks (+900 to win the title) to meet in the NBA Finals at +325 odds.
It’s very possible that the only thing standing in the way between a star-studded matchup between the Lakers and Nets will be the health of their players, as both teams were knocked out in last season’s playoffs due to injuries to their stars (Anthony Davis for the Lakers, James Harden and Kyrie Irving for the Nets).
The Nets were the favorites to win the NBA Finals until they were knocked out by the Bucks in the playoffs, so it’s no surprise that oddsmakers think a healthy Brooklyn team will contend for a title in the 2021-22 campaign.
NBA free agency will also play a major factor in each team’s fate, but the Lakers and Nets already have star-filled rosters that will only need an influx of role players this offseason.
If you were planning on betting on the Lakers or Nets to win, this prop certainly could be worth it with both teams entering the season as the favorites in their respective conference.
That way, you don’t have to get the winner right, but you can still cash in on the +320 odds if the matchup does come to fruition.
LeBron James’ team has made the Finals in nine of the last 11 seasons, and with a revamped roster it seems like a great bet that James can find his way back this coming season.
