Whether it's betting on the Kentucky Derby, on who will win next year’s Super Bowl, or on whether LeBron James or Kevin Durant 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.
Wagering on tonight's games is just one of the ways to place and win bets. You can make futures bets on any of the major sports championships such as the Super Bowl, World Series, Stanley Cup final, March Madness, College Football Playoff, and the NBA Finals. And 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 for the Sprint Cup, 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 if their win total will be more than or less than 9.5. Think Miguel Cabrera will win the home run crown? You can bet on that prop during the MLB season.
And then there are entertainment odds and political betting lines - you can bet on the Oscars, or the Emmys, or the next Presidential election. In short, if you can imagine it, it's probably out there as something you can bet on. Check out the lists of archived futures at OddsShark.com . . .
