Brooklyn Nets 2021-22 NBA Atlantic Division Futures Odds & Picks

Brooklyn Nets 2021-22 NBA Atlantic Division Futures Odds & Picks

Although their lead isn’t large, the Brooklyn Nets are overwhelming NBA betting favorites to win the Atlantic Division. The second choice belongs to the Philadelphia 76ers. The Toronto Raptors, Boston Celtics, and New York Knicks round out the field. Toronto has shown remarkable betting value. Consider Canada’s tougher pandemic standards that have disrupted the Raptors roster. As was the case in 2020-21, Brooklyn is struggling to maintain board value. In the same way, the Nets are playing through key injuries. New York has been the biggest disappointment after a big leap forward in 2020-21.

Atlantic Division SBG Odds Overview

On the whole, the Nets resemble a fantasy basketball team. Brooklyn’s star power appeals to casual gamblers like no other team. James Harden, Kevin Durant, and Kyrie Irving light up the sportsbook marquee when healthy. Previously the 76ers had similar name brand power led by Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. But last year’s playoff flop turned off squares. And Simmons’s holdout further damages the brand. Last summer, the Knicks were one of the most popular picks on the futures board. New York’s lack of offense and popularity with squares combine to drag down their value.

Overall, the Atlantic Division is comprised of some of the NBA’s biggest brands. Squares flock to each team in the division. Toronto once lacked the board appeal of the other four teams. But their 2019 World Championship altered that perception and branding. Boston, New York, and Philadelphia carry the additional price of being NBA legacy franchises.
