NBA Future Bets To Consider Halfway Through the Season

by Rohan LullaFebruary 16, 2023

The NBA All-Star game is just around the corner this coming weekend, and that means it is halfway through the NBA season. With many trades taking place and a change-up in the Western Conference, let’s look at some potential future bets for the rest of the season.

Phoenix Suns to Win NBA Championship/Western Conference

With the blockbuster trade of Kevin Durant last week, the Suns pose a huge threat now in the West and in the entire league. With a dynamic starting lineup that includes two of the best scorers in the league, Durant and Devin Booker, there is some good value on Suns Western Conference winners at +245 and NBA Champions at +450.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander To Win Most Improved Player

The young guard has been dominating this season by averaging 30.9 points a game and shooting 50.8% from the field. Shai made the All-Star team for the first time in his young career.

DraftKings has him listed at +115 to win Most Improved Player; if he can keep playing at such a high-scoring level, he should be able to take home the award.

Giannis Antetokounmpo To Win MVP

It’s never a bad bet to bank on the Greek Freak to outperform during the second half of the season. Averaging 32.5 points and 12.3 rebounds a night, Giannis and the Bucks are in close first place in the East and are looking to make a bigger leap with the experienced squad they have in Milluwake.

Giannis is the third favorite to win MVP at +700, but these odds have great value for the second half of the season.

Dallas Mavericks Over 45.5 Wins

The Mavericks have added a new offensive weapon Kyrie Irving to pair with their star Luka Doncic. With two elite-level guards who pose a threat anytime on the court, they should be able to win more games and pose a threat in the West. Currently 6th in the West with 31 wins, it should be interesting to see how this dynamic duo can work efficiently to produce solid chemistry in the second half of the season.

The Mavs are listed at -110 to get over 45.5 wins this season.

Minnesota Timberwolves Over 41.5 Wins

It’s been a bit of a letdown this season for the Wolves, who recently traded for big man Rudy Gobert. With Karl Anthony-Towns being out of action since late November and still awaiting his return, the Wolves remain in the NBA playoff hunt with 31 wins and sitting in 8th place. With the trade for veteran Mike Conley being finalized, the second half of the season could see a positive turnaround for the Minnesota squad.

Consider taking Timberwolves over 41.5 wins this season at -115 to make a positive win stretch for the rest of the season.
