Nuggets fans, things are about to get exciting.
With the NBA announcing its official plan of return (read more about that here) alongside legal sports betting introducing itself to Colorado last month, you’ll now be able to legally place bets on the Nuggets throughout their upcoming playoff run.
At FanDuel Sportsbook, Denver is currently listed at +2500 to win the NBA Championship, and +1000 to win the Western Conference, which means you could turn 10 bucks into $250 if the Nuggets take the title, or $100 if they come out of the West.
Want some more good news? Colorado residents can now bet on the Nuggets’ playoff run at even better odds than the market standard.
Here are your options:
Denver Nuggets Odds to Win the Western Conference
- Was: +1000
- Now: +1500
As mentioned, the Nuggets have a 10-1 (+1000) chance of winning the West. That implies a probability of 9.1%.
In other words, if you think your Nuggets have greater than a 6.25% chance of winning the conference, this is a bet you should be making.
Denver Nuggets Odds to Make the Western Conference Finals
- +300 … plus bonuses for each win.
Here’s how this one works.
If you place a $25+ bet on the Nuggets to make the West Finals at +300, you’ll automatically win $3 for each playoff game Denver wins along the way — on top of the chance to triple your money if the Nuggets do find themselves playing for the conference title.
With this option, your potential losses will (hopefully) be cut continuously throughout the playoffs. If Denver, for example, makes it out of the first round and loses the second round in six games, your $25 bet will result in just a $7 loss (as you’d earn $18 back from Denver’s six total wins).
But with just two more wins, that $7 loss would swing into a $99 payout (eight wins + $75 from your future bet)!
Certainly not a bad chance to take.
