What is a futures bet?

Glad you asked, wise guy. A futures bet is exactly what it says on the tin – an event in the future, quite often it is in the distance. Generally they revolve around the biggest trophies in sports, such as the NFL Super Bowl, NBA Championship, MLB World Series, and NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship.

When can I bet on futures?

The good news is futures are year-round. You can bet on the following Super Bowl almost immediately after the Lombardi Trophy is hoisted in the air. In the offseason and during free agency are popular times to wager on championship winners, with fans excited about potential partnerships.

Incredibly though, you can bet on futures the day before an event. You could bet on the World Series winner the morning of Game 7. Naturally the odds are going to be shorter than Kyler Murray, but the option is still there.

Why should I bet on futures?

While waiting on a futures bet to come off can be annoying, they often have the largest return probability. Before the 2020 NFL regular season began, Tampa Bay were +1500 (Buffalo +2800, Tampa +1500, Green Bay +3100) with FanDuel to win Super Bowl LV.

A $100 bet on the eventual World Champs in the preseason would have led to a $1500 payout.

It takes balls bigger than Tom Brady’s to bet futures but there’s a reason they’re so lucrative. If you use Dimers’ data and analytics based probabilities before picking your next championship winner, you can still win. That's even if your balls aren’t as big, or if you don’t have any to begin with!

Our futures model uses data and analytics to project the most likely winner across the NBA, NFL, MLB and NHL postseasons. We then cross-reference all sportsbooks’ odds to identify the best odds and any edges we may have found, over and above what the books are offering.

You’re welcome.

What is the ‘edge’ is sports betting?

The edge is where the probability of an event occurring is more likely than the sportsbooks’ odds. In other words, our data and analytics suggest a team has a much better chance of winning the title than the sportsbooks think! Taking these bets gives you a better chance of being a successful gambler overall.
