Latest Cleveland Cavaliers Betting Odds & Information

It seems like longer than three years since the Cleveland Cavaliers were contesting the NBA Finals and even longer since they won the Championship in 2016. However, the once perennial NBA Finals betting favorites are no longer a major force and this is reflected in their NBA Futures odds of +20000 to win the 2022 NBA Championship. The oddsmakers are struggling to see any hope for the Cavs and returns of $200 for every dollar bet on them is a big price.

There is the possibility for some hedging potential and the new wave of NBA betting apps will allow bettors to place a Futures bet and then Cash Out during the season. However, it might take a leap of faith to suggest that those betting on Cleveland will be paid, at least based on the current roster.

These odds are subject to change though, particularly after the NBA Draft has been completed. For all up to date NBA Betting information be sure to check back elsewhere on the site regularly, where our team will not only post the latest odds from the best NBA Sportsbooks but also some analysis and expert predictions for the 2022 NBA season.
