Bet On NBA Northwest Games

There are plenty of betting opportunities for the Northwest Division and it all starts with the money line. This particular bet is straightforward: bet on the team you think will win. The team you are picking will have a price: a minus number indicating they are the favorite or a plus number showing they are the underdog. For example, a -170 favorite means you need to bet $170 to win $100 while a +150 underdog means you win $150 on a $100 bet. There are many more ways to bet other than the money line and they are explained below.

Gods of Thunder: the Oklahoma City Thunder (formerly the Seattle Supersonics) have won the Northwest Division the most since its creation in 2004. Powered by superstars and reliable role players, the Thunder finished with over 50 wins for each season but one between 2009 to 2016. In 2015-2016, the Thunder tied their best division record with an 81.25 winning percent (13-3 record), their best in five years.

Every wolf has its day: opposite the Thunder are the Minnesota Timberwolves. The embattled franchise has never finished higher than the third spot or made the playoffs between the division’s first year to 2016. But things are changing in the Twin Cities as an array of draft picks and excellent young players may finally push the franchise out of the basement and likewise, the Utah Jazz has been rebuilding and looking to return to the playoffs. The franchise has consistently been in the top three of the division for every year but three between 2004 to 2016.

Calling it early: it may sound crazy initially but any division power can fall of their throne at any moment’s notice. Injuries, offseason roster changes or other off-court complications are just some factors that can change the division standings and being keen on any of these can make you a nice coin. Making a prop bet on the division winner before the season starts is one of many potential diamonds in the rough you can hit with the NBA.
