HomeNBA Betting in New JerseyBrooklyn Nets Odds

A founding member of the American Basketball Association (ABA), the franchise that is the modern-day Brooklyn Nets has a long history going back to the 1960s. Despite always playing second fiddle to the area’s other team, the New York Knicks, the Nets have seen some success as of late, as they look to build on a talented young core in years to come.

Despite failing to punch through to the NBA Finals, the Nets have quietly made the postseason in each of the past five seasons, losing in the first round in four and in the conference semi-finals in 2020-21. In 2022-23, the Nets clinched the 6th spot in the Eastern Conference Playoffs following a 45-37 regular season, before being swept in the first round vs. the Philadelphia 76ers.

While their recent stars Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden have all been traded, the Nets still have some talent that is good enough to keep them in postseason contention. Leading the way is SF Mikal Bridges, who is complemented by a young core that includes Cam Thomas (SG), Cameron Johnson (SF), and veteran Spencer Dinwiddie (PG).

Which bet types can you use for the Brooklyn Nets?

There are many different types of bets you can use for the Brooklyn Nets, with everything from straight bets, team prop bets, player prop bets, and more. Today, we are going to cover a few of the basic bet types you can use for Brooklyn Nets wagering, with real-life examples of each.

  • Money line: A money line wager is simply one on which team will win the game, at the currently posted odds. Teams with negative numbers next to their odds are the game’s favorite, while teams with a positive sign next to their numbers are the game’s underdogs.

Example: Brooklyn Nets (+210) vs. Los Angeles Lakers (-230). In this scenario, the Nets are more than 2/1 underdogs to beat the Los Angeles Lakers. If the Nets were able to pull off an upset, a $100 wager would return $310 ($100 risked + $210 won).

  • Point Spread: Also referred as a “Puck Line” (hockey) and “Run Line” (baseball), the point spread refers to the number of points an oddsmaker expects a team to win or lose by.

Example: Brooklyn Nets (+4.5) vs. New York Knicks (-4.5). In this scenario, the Knicks would have to win the game by at least five points to be an Against the Spread (ATS) winner. If the Nets can manage to lose by less than five, including winning the game outright, they would be the ATS winner.

  • Total: The total, or the “Over/Under”, is how many total points an oddsmaker expects to be scored in a game. The final total is arrived at by combining the score of each team, no matter who is the winner/loser on the money line or who covers the point spread.

Example: Brooklyn Nets vs. Washington Wizards (O/U 212.5). In this scenario, the Nets and Wizards must combine to score more than 212 points for the “Over” bettors to be considered winners. If less than 213 points are scored, in total, in the game, the “Under” bettors would be considered winners.

  • Futures: As the name suggests, a Futures bet is a wager on the expected outcome of a season. In NBA betting, Futures include how many regular season wins a team will accrue, who will win a division or conference, which players will win certain NBA Awards and much more.

Example: Brooklyn Nets to Win the Eastern Conference (+1900). In this scenario, the Nets have 19/1 odds to win the Eastern Conference. If they were able to pull it off, a $100 wager would return $2,000 ($100 risked + $1,900 won.

With the move came a rebranding, as the team played from 1968-1976 in the ABA as the New York Nets.
  • 1974: Led by ABA Most Value Player Julius Irving, the Nets would win their first ABA Championship, as a talented cast that included Mike Gale and Larry Kenon was the best in the league. Two years later, in the final season of the ABA ever, the same team would win their second ABA Championship.
  • 1977: Following a 1976 offseason that saw the ABA merge with the National Basketball Association (NBA), the Nets were brought into the NBA along with the Indiana Pacers, San Antonio Spurs, and Denver Nuggets.

After running through the Pacers, Hornets, and Celtics in the Eastern Conference playoffs, the Nets were swept in four games by the Los Angeles Lakers.
