With basketball being such a popular sport, you may fancy placing some long term bets on teams for example that make up the Atlantic Division, and if so then today I will be running through each of the teams in that division, but also giving you the odds on them being crowned the champions of that division in 2019.
It is however the Toronto Raptors who appear to be the punters favourite, and with odds of 4/9 you can see why that is certainly a view that is shared by the odds compilers at betting sites such as Coral!
In fact, Coral are one of the best betting sites you can bet at if you fancy betting on any upcoming basketball matches, as they always have dozens of different betting opportunities on each match, and with that in mind I will be quoting their futures betting odds throughout today’s betting news story.
If you feel that the Toronto Raptors are not going to be crowned the Atlantic Division winners next year then it could be the second favourite team that you fancy betting on, and if that is the case you need to look at teams such as the Boston Celtics, for they are the second favourite to do so currently at win odds of 10/3.
Philadelphia 76ers Third Favourites
It can be quite easy to bet with your heart rather than your head when it comes to betting on basketball, however I do know that teams such as the Philadelphia 76ers do have a huge number of fans, many of them who will be hoping that 2019 will be the year that team does head the Atlantic Division.
If that is something that you are hoping too then now would be an ideal time to back them to do so, for their 7/2 odds of doing so at the Coral betting site will get much lower if they do start to win match after match!
Two Other Teams in the Atlantic Division
There are two other teams that are playing in the Atlantic Division, however it is fair to say that their respective chances of being crowned the champions of that division are tiny, and both of them will need a miracle if they are to do so in 2019.
But at the end of the day anything is possible in basketball, and if you feel that you do fancy the chances of teams such as the Brooklyn Nets then the odds of 250/1 are there for the taking, however do not get too carried away with the stake you place on them is my advice!
The final team that is playing in this division are not one that many punters will ever fancy backing to win it nor will they be backing them to win any upcoming individual matches either. That team is of course the New York Knicks and as for the odds you are going to be able to secure on them those odds are 500/1.
