With the 2021 NBA Playoffs in full swing, we take a look at the series bets as well as Conference analysis. Moreover, the MLB season has been marred with injuries across the landscape. This post will predict using important stats to look at for MLB teams and which teams to avoid overall. 2021 futures bets will hopefully get us through the rest of the season across both sports!
It is important to remember that these are value picks at this point. I bet the Brooklyn Nets to win the title at +600 and again at +245. Currently, there is no NBA Championship bet value on the Brooklyn Nets. This is to say, bet smart and take the value, worst case scenario you hedge when needed.
2021 NBA Playoff Futures Best Bets
Denver Nuggets To Beat The Portland Trail Blazers +130
Jokic or Dame? That’s the tough question, right? Well, look at the overall rosters and I think we can find common ground here. The Denver Nuggets have a much better roster and defense. I would expect this one to go deep because Dame Dolla’ Lillard is that good. But this is too much to overcome after they dominated game 2.
New York Knicks To Beat The Atlanta Hawks +120
Welcome back to the spotlight New York! Huge game two victory and a wild crowd at the famous Madison Square Garden Arena helped bring the Knicks a win. Julius Randle is currently shooting just 29%.
They should have won game 1 and won game 2. This bet is fully expecting the Knicks’ best player to take a step forward and show himself as their best player. New York has resurfaced as a basketball city.
2021 MLB Futures Bets To Target
Fernando Tatis Jr. To Win The NL MVP +600
Value is so important I cannot stress it enough. I bet Ronald Acuna when he was +800. That value was excellent as he sits around +250. Now, Fernando Tatis is showing himself as a true contender for the award. He is very worth a bet at +600 as the award should be just a two-team race.
Padres To Win The National League +350
Call me crazy all you want but the Padres have the Dodgers number. They have a loaded roster and Mookie Betts has really struggled in year two with Los Angeles. Furthermore, Fernando Tatis Jr. is hitting over .300 and is second in the league in steals.
I love the Padres depth in position players and starting pitching. Their bullpen is in the top 10 in ERA. That is a big tell for success during the playoffs. They are very worthy of a bet here.
