The NBA playoffs will be a little more interesting for a handful of sports bettors, namely those with title bets riding on contenders such as the 76ers, Nets and Suns.

Those three clubs comprise the eight largest futures bets at BetMGM. Among those, five feature six-figure payouts.

Here are the top NBA title wagers riding at the sportsbook, including the teams, prices and potential profits.

1. Suns +300

Bet: $20,000 to win $60,000

Talk about a solid ticket to have in your pocket.

The Suns, who clocked out of the season with an NBA-best 64-18 record, are the title favorites ahead of the postseason, ranging anywhere from +270 to +380 across 10 sportsbooks (you can check out all the futures odds and prices here).

Phoenix' +275 consensus price is ahead of Milwaukee (+500) and Brooklyn at +650 odds.

2. Nets +240 

Bet: $20,000 to win $48,000

Speaking of the Nets, they're the only other team at the shop with a 20K futures bet riding on them. They draw Cleveland in Tuesday's play-in.

Brooklyn was admittedly horrible for bettors during the regular season, clocking out with the second-worst cover rate in basketball at 32-48-2 (40%) against the spread

3. 76ers +2000

Bet: $19,000 to win $380,000

The 76ers at 20/1 will close a good bet. The best price on the board at the time of writing's +1400, with the consensus title number at +1248 odds.

Philadelphia draws a stingy first-round opponent in Toronto, which took three of four during the regular-season series.

4. Heat +2000 

Bet: $10,000 to win 200,000

Another 20-1 title bet that'll wind up a nice wager is Miami, which has a consensus price of +974 odds.

All the Heat did was finish first in the conference in wins (53) and tie for the East lead in cover rate (56.8%) during the regular season.

5. Bucks +750

Bet: $10,000 to win $75,000

The final five-figure bet is on the reigning champion Bucks, who get a beat-up Chicago team in the opening round.

This wager on Milwaukee was placed at +750, but bettors with the flexibility to shop around can still find a +800 as of Tuesday.

6. Bulls +15000

Bet: $1,000 to win $150,000

7. Cavaliers +15000

Bet: $1,000 to win $150,000

8. Raptors +12500

Bet: $1,000 to win $125,000
