2022 NBA Draft Details & FanDuel Bonuses

The NBA season has concluded. But there’s no time to waste in preparation for the 2022-23 campaign.

Where to start? How about 2022 NBA draft on Thursday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn starting at 8 p.m. ET.

That’s where the Orlando Magic will be to make the franchise’s fourth-ever first-overall pick. It’s where the New York Knicks will be to make their selections at No. 11 and No. 42. As it stands, the Brooklyn Nets have no picks, having traded them away or deferring the pick owed to them by the Philadelphia 76ers until 2023.

While online sports betting in New York cannot accept bets on the draft itself, it’s never too early to think about putting money down on next year’s league champion. And with FanDuel Sportsbook NY, new users can sign up and receive up to $1,000 in free bets if their first wager doesn’t win.

The promo says it all: “No Sweat First Bet.”

New users who sign up with FanDuel New York can take advantage of this offer. What’s more: You don’t even need to use a FanDuel promo code NY. Just click the banner above.

After creating an account, place your first real-money wager on any event — perhaps a wager on the Nets to win the 2023 NBA title. If that bet loses, should Brooklyn fall short of the championship, FanDuel will credit your account in the amount you wagered up to $1,000.

Taking a look at 2022 NBA draft odds

It should be emphasized the NY online sportsbooks cannot offer NBA draft betting. As such, bettors in the Empire State will not find these props at any of their preferred New York betting apps.

That said, we can still examine how the draft might play out using draft odds featured at FanDuel Sportsbook in New Jersey.

For example, in the Garden State, FanDuel lists three players as frontrunners to hear their names called with the first overall pick by the Orlando Magic:

  • Jabari Smith: -290
  • Paolo Banchero: +270
  • Chet Holmgren: +420

FanDuel does not have lines for which player the Knicks will select with the No. 11 pick. However, several over/unders can make that picture a little clearer.

Jalen Duren, a center from Memphis, holds an over/under of 10.5 to be drafted. Both AJ Griffin (forward, Duke) and Jeremy Sochan (forward, Baylor) sit at 11.5, and Johnny Davis (guard, Wisconsin) stands at 12.5.

Pundits believe Griffin is the primary target of the Knicks. The 6-foot-6, 222-pound outgoing freshman averaged 10.4 points last season for the Blue Devils to help them reach the Final Four. Seemingly only his injuries have caused Griffin’s stock to slide a bit.

Never too early: 2022-23 NBA betting futures

With the Golden State Warriors fresh off their fourth NBA championship in eight years, it seems only fitting to start looking at NBA betting futures for the 2022-23 season.

Naturally, the Warriors head into next year as the preeminent favorite to lift the Larry O’Brien Trophy. The East, though, is not far behind. And that includes the Brooklyn Nets.

Brooklyn Nets 2022-23 outlook

The Nets have qualified for the NBA playoffs in each of the three years they have been led by Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. However, Brooklyn has only one playoff series victory to its name. Plus, the Nets were just swept in the first round by the eventual Eastern Conference champion Boston Celtics.

That said, Irving played in just 53 games this past season — most on the road due to his vaccination status. Add in nagging injuries to Joe Harris and newly acquired Ben Simmons, as well as many other factors, and the Nets weren’t exactly set up for a championship run this season.

Questions remain about Irving’s return to Brooklyn. Shams Charania of The Athletic reported that the point guard and the Nets were “at an impasse” surrounding his future with the team. Similarly, Kristian Winfield of the New York Daily News indicated that the Nets are “outright unwilling” to sign Irving to a long-term contract. (Interestingly, the Knicks are one of the teams who could emerge as a potential landing spot should Irving leave in free agency.)

New York Knicks 2022-23 outlook

As for the Knicks, FanDuel NY pegs their championship odds at , obviously one of the longer lines in the league.

New York could obviously grab a prospect at No. 11. But reports have surfaced that the Knicks could move up to No. 5 via a deal involving Cam Reddish.

In any case, New York has plenty of young talent. Two years ago, the Knicks enjoyed the franchise’s best regular-season record and first playoff appearance since 2013. This past season, however, New York fell back to earth and missed the postseason entirely.

While Julius Randle and RJ Barrett stand as quality cornerstones for the time being, the Knicks could become a common team that emerges in the free agency and trade market (see above, re: Irving).

Best bet: Warriors to repeat … again

It’s hard to bet against Golden State winning another NBA championship. Even this year, it was difficult to count them out.

With a healthy Steph CurryKlay Thompson and Draymond Green, and with the emergence of Jordan Poole, the Warriors will certainly be the team to beat. Again.
