Whether it's betting on the Kentucky Derby, who will win next year’s Super Bowl, or even whether LeBron James or Kobe Bryant will win NBA MVP honors, the online world is full of odds to make events more interesting and exciting for bettors.
They are known as future odds or futures, much like the stock market where you can speculate on whether a commodity’s value will increase or decrease over time. On top of the bragging rights of picking an NFL longshot in August that goes on to win the Super Bowl in February, there are tempting odds to sample and tempting profits to earn.
And then there are entertainment odds, political betting lines, prop bets, future wagers, and more. You can bet the Oscars too. Same thing for Survivor, American Idol, and Dancing with the Stars on TV.

Wagering on tonight's games is just one of the many ways to place and win bets. You can make future bets on any of major sports championships such as the Super Bowl, World Series, Stanley Cup playoffs, March Madness, BCS Championship in college football, and the NBA playoffs. As soon as one season is over, there are usually future odds posted for next season's championship!
NASCAR, with odds to win the Chase, and golf, with odds on who will win next year’s Masters, also get in on the futures betting act.
You can even lay wagers on which NFL team will win its division, or will their win total be more than or less than 9.5. Think Albert Pujols or Ryan Howard will win the home run crown? You can bet on that prop during the season.
In short, if you can imagine it, it's probably out there as something you can bet on. Check out the list of current future odds we track here at OddsShark.com.
