Predicting these events so far in advance is difficult, so learning how to read odds like these can give you some of the most lucrative payouts in sports betting.
Instead of placing a basic wager of $110 to win $100 on a team or individual, in most cases you're going to bring back a higher return and are always plenty of long shots that surprise each season. Another name for Futures Odds is Odds to Win and it's very simple to understand. You just need to select the team or individual to win the event before it starts and your payout for the bet will depend on the odds given at the time of the wager. To figure out your Win Amount, take the odds and multiply by the amount wagered.
WHAT IS A FUTURES ODDS WAGER?
Sportsbooks call these odds a futures bet because you place a wager on an outcome that won’t be decided in the near future like a single game would be. Instead, you bet on future events. Often, that means betting on the overall winner of a league, but this isn’t always the case.
An example of this common type of futures betting would be placing a wager at the start of the MLB season on who will win the World Series. However, you might also place a futures bet on an individual award, like betting that Aaron Rogers will win the NFL’s MVP award.Futures betting allows players to win money from the outcome of entire leagues, tournaments, or major events ahead of time. The added advantage is that futures bet may offer more favorable odds than standard money line bets.
HOW DO FUTURES ODDS WORK?
Futures betting differs from other sports betting in that odds can be offered months or even years in advance of the bet paying off. For instance, in soccer, bettors can wager on the winner of the World Cup up to four years before the actual tournament.
Sportsbooks take advantage of expert analysis and multiple gigabytes of data to attempt to see into the future and predict the winners of these events. They set their odds accordingly. For example, you won’t get a big payout for predicting that Kevin Durant will take home yet another MVP award. You’ll get a more substantial payout for a longshot outcome, like a rookie breaking through to win the award instead.
That said, futures bets will typically offer better odds for specific picks than money line wagers placed later in the season. This is because you’re making your selection from a broader field. A pre-season NBA futures bet for the Championship means picking one team out of 30 to win. With a money line bet on the outcome of the Finals, you’re picking one of two teams.
