Knicks Odds Rise on Lin Hype
It`s one of the most compelling stories in sports history and it`s having just as big an effect on sportsbooks as on the public.
Jeremy Lin, cast off from the Warriors and Rockets, has become an overnight sensation in New York, where the Knicks have won 9 straight and covered the spread 8 times.
At Bovada, the NBA future odds have soared from 40 to 1 all the way to 18 to 1.
"The action has really picked up on NBA futures with Jeremy Lin making the Knicks the hottest team on the NBA and keep we keep taking money," explains Kevin Bradley.
"A guy like this is great for the game and has drawn a lot of interest from bettors on the Knicks games also. I am having visions of how they public was treating the Giants going into the Super Bowl being the hottest team in the NFL and costing us a mint and right now the Knicks are by far the biggest loser for the book."
