Brooklyn Nets Odds
With Steve Nash at the helm and two of the most dynamic basketball players of the past decade—Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving— leading the way, the Brooklyn Nets are poised to make some noise in the NBA for the foreseeable future.
The Nets have reached the playoffs each of the last four seasons but have won just one series victory to show for it. With a pair of dynamic players leading the way in Durant and Irving, and potentially with Ben Simmons at full strength when the new year rolls around, Brooklyn carries favorable odds to win the 2022-23 NBA championship.
Do the Nets have what it takes to get it done? Can they actually defend anyone and still produce record-level offensive output? Now that legal online sports betting is live in New York, you can enjoy all the thrills of betting on the Nets like never before.

- You can make your first deposit and check out the latest lines for Nets games by clicking on the NBA or basketball tab.
Once your account is all set, you’ll be able to manage things at home without issue. However, you’ll need to be within NY state lines to place bets. Sportsbooks verify user location with geolocation software, so bets won’t go through if you’re not where you say you are.
Nets live betting & app download
You don’t have to be done with betting once Nets games get underway. Live betting provides you with even more opportunities to explore as the game plays out. Also known as in game betting, this is a fast-moving style of wagering. It has become an extremely popular option for the high-scoring NBA. Here are some examples of what you’ll see:
- New moneyline odds, spreads and totals for Nets games.
- Various team and player prop betting opportunities.
- Wager on segments of the game like quarters and halves.
Offerings will vary based on what’s happening on the floor. For example, if the Nets were underdogs heading in and got out to a big lead, the live game odds would reflect the new situation at hand. Player props are a top highlight of live betting, and you’ll see many during the game, such as how many points a player will score or which player will hit more threes.
Sportsbook apps are a fantastic way to get in the game with live betting. There are dedicated sections for current offerings as the game moves along. Odds update quickly and payouts happen in an instant, so you’ll be able to stay on top of all of the action without issue. Before too long, you’ll find the app is a perfect companion whenever the Nets take the court.
How do betting lines work in basketball?
Whenever the Nets and other NBA teams are scheduled to play, sportsbooks will unveil odds for the proceedings. You can find all of the upcoming matchups by clicking on the NBA tab or basketball tab. The next slate of games will appear in the betting lobby. You’ll see listings for each game that will look something like this.
- Philadelphia 76ers +4.5 (-110) +165 O 214.5 (-110)
- Brooklyn Nets -4.5 (-110) -200 U 214.5 (-110)
Each contest is listed with the home side on the bottom and the road team on top. You’ll see the odds and lines for the three main bet types — point spreads, moneylines and totals — right next to the two team names. How do you read spread bets and moneylines? In this example, the Nets are 4.5-point favorites on the point spread and favored on the moneyline in a game with a projected total of 214.5 points.
We can tell favorites and underdogs by the direction of the spread and moneyline: negative for favorites and positive for underdogs. A small gap between the two sides indicates a possible tight game, while a larger span points to a potential mismatch. For spreads and totals, you’ll see the number set by the book — 4.5 and 214.5 — and the odds for the bet, which are -110 here.
The odds can also tell you the return to expect on winning bets. Here’s a quick way to figure it out. When odds are negative, the number equals how much you have to risk to get back $100 in profit — i.e., $110 at odds of -110. If the odds are positive, the value equals your profit for a winning $100 wager — i.e., $165 at odds of +165.
How to bet on Nets futures and props
NBA betting action isn’t reserved for game outcomes. There are additional options to consider with two of the most popular bet types being futures and props. As the name implies, a futures bet is on an outcome to be determined at a later date, such as a wager on the Nets to win the division. Props are generally based on single-game events.
When betting on futures, the object is to find the choices you want to wager on at the best available prices. As such, you should take the time to compare odds at different sportsbooks. Here are some of the more popular options you’ll see in the NBA futures market.
- Bet on Nets to win the NBA Finals, conference or division.
- Wager on the over/under for the Nets’ total regular season wins.
- Make the call on whether the Nets will make or miss the playoffs.
A futures bet could have two choices, in which case it’ll resemble a moneyline wager with odds for both selections. There are also multiple-choice futures with odds listed for all clubs in the field, or individual options like wagers on a specific player to win MVP or rookie of the year. Prop bets, meanwhile, tend to look like this:
- How many points plus rebounds for Kevin Durant — over/under 34.5?
- Which player will have more points in the game — James Harden or John Wall?
- Which team will hold the lead at halftime — Knicks or Nets?
Beyond the two-sided props, you’ll also see some with multiple selections, such as the high scorer for the game or which player will record the first basket in the contest. You can find available props for each NBA game by clicking on the game listing. This is another good area to shop around, as the prices at sportsbooks can be different for the same prop.
House rules for betting on NBA games
House rules provide you with a heads up on how sportsbooks handle things. There’s a specific set of rules for each sport that covers circumstances that could impact things like bet placement or settlement. There are a lot of similarities across the industry, but there could also be some differences in how various sportsbooks handle things. For the NBA, here are the basics.
- A sportsbook will consider a bet live once the game tips off. In the event of postponement or outright cancellation, wagers will be voided and refunded. For slight delays, the bet may remain in play if the teams will complete the game reasonably soon.
- Sportsbooks will settle all wagers — game outcome, player props, etc. — based on official league data and statistics. Once the result is final, the sportsbook will pay out winning bets in a timely fashion.
- Sportsbooks will not entertain disputes on results you disagree with, such as a bad beat loss or an officiating call that impacts the contest. Once the contest is final, payout is based on the actual result and nothing more.
Most books have a dedicated section for house rules, while others include it in the same section as terms and conditions, help or FAQs. As mentioned, there can be variances here and there between books, so we encourage you to review the rules where you play. It’s better to have a full understanding of what to expect than to receive an unwelcome surprise later on.
Latest Odds on NY Teams
The standard NBA schedule calls for 82 games per team, 41 each at home and away. While putting it together, the schedule makers follow a specific formula.
- Teams play 16 games vs. fellow divisional rivals
- Teams play 36 games vs. other conference foes
- Teams play 30 games vs. clubs from the opposite conference
At a minimum, all teams in the league play one another at least twice — once at home and once away. Since the Nets are loaded with firepower, there are lots of marquee matchups to look forward to as they face off with other star-laden teams. The pieces may finally be in place for the Nets to have an extended run of stellar play.
See the table above for upcoming games on the Nets schedule.
Biggest Nets rivalries
The Nets reside in the NBA’s Atlantic Division. That translates into natural rivalries with the other four teams in the division. The Nets shape up as one of the stronger clubs out of the five, so that sets the stage for some interesting divisional battles with the following squads:
- Boston Celtics
- Philadelphia 76ers
- Toronto Raptors
At the conference level, Brooklyn has the talent to compete for a spot in the NBA Finals. That could set the stage for an ongoing rivalry with the Milwaukee Bucks, the team that knocked the Nets out of the playoffs a season ago.
Nets stats leaders
There should be an interesting battle for team leaders in key statistical categories over the next few years. The Nets have a trio of players who could easily be the top option on many NBA teams. Looking back over the last five seasons, we find a number of names atop the charts on a per-game basis.
|2020-21||K. Irving - 26.9||D. Jordan - 7.5||K. Irving - 6.0|
|2019-20||S. Dinwiddie - 20.6||D. Jordan - 10.0||S. Dinwiddie - 6.8|
|2018-19||D. Russell - 21.1||E. Davis - 8.6||D. Russell - 7.0|
|2017-18||R. Hollis-Jefferson - 13.9||R. Hollis-Jefferson - 6.8||S. Dinwiddie - 6.6|
|2016-17||B. Lopez - 20.5||T. Booker - 8.0||S. Dinwiddie - 3.1|
Nets draft picks
In addition to loading up via free agency and trades, the Nets have also added some first-round draft picks over the past few years. However, many have been shipped out while the team was wheeling and dealing to build a contender. Here’s a look back at the six choices.
|2020||Saddiq Bey (Traded to Pistons)||F||Villanova|
|2019||Nickell Alexander-Walker (Traded to Hawks)||SG||Virginia Tech|
|2019||Mfiondu Kabengele (Traded to Clippers)||SF||Florida State|
|2017||27th pick traded to Lakers, who selected Kyle Kuzma||F||Utah|
Nets coaching staff
Steve Nash was hired as head coach of the Nets in September 2020. He’s the 27th person to hold the title on an overall basis, and the fifth since the Jason Kidd era came to a close in 2014. It’s his first NBA head coaching gig in the wake of a stellar playing career that wrapped up in 2015. Here’s a look at the other members of the coaching staff in Brooklyn.
- Assistant coach: Jacque Vaughn
- Assistant coach: David Vanterpool
- Assistant coach: Ryan Forehan-Kelly
- Assistant coach: Royal Ivey
- Assistant coach: Tiago Splitter
- Assistant coach: Brian Keefe
- Assistant coach: Adam Harrington

Past Nets coaches
The Nets have been searching for the right coach to lead the way for some time. Since the tenure of Byron Scott came to an end in 2004, 12 head coaches have been in place. Scott led the team to a pair of NBA Finals, but others haven’t been able to do the same. Since the team moved to Brooklyn in 2012, seven men had the job before Nash. Here’s how they did.

Brief Nets history
In 1967, the American Basketball Association began play as a rival to the NBA. A team known as the New Jersey Americans was one of the charter members. After playing a season under that name, the club was re-christened as the Nets and shipped off to New York. The team, led by Julius Erving, found success in its new home.
The club took down a pair of ABA crowns in 1974 and 1976. The ABA and NBA merged following the last title, and the Nets came along for the ride. Despite its success, the franchise didn’t stick in NY. It was off to NJ once again. Success was minimal until the turn of the century, with all playoff teams being bounced in round one.
The franchise turned a corner from there with Jason Kidd leading the way. The club made it to the NBA Finals two years in a row, losing to the Los Angeles Lakers in 2002 and the San Antonio Spurs in 2003. Since that point, the club hasn’t made it past the conference semifinals. Here’s a look at some of the key accomplishments in franchise history.
- League titles: Two in the ABA, 1974 and 1976
- NBA conference titles: Two, last in 2003
- Division titles: Five, last in 2006
- Regular season points scored: Brook Lopez, 10,444
- Minutes played: Buck Williams, 23,100
- Most rebounds: Buck Williams, 7,576
- Most assists: Jason Kidd, 4,620
- Most steals: Jason Kidd, 950
- Most blocks: Brook Lopez, 972
- Rookies of the year: Two, last for Derrick Coleman in 1991
- All-NBA first-team: Two, last for Jason Kidd in 2004
- NBA All-Rookie first-team: Seven, last for Mason Plumlee in 2014
- ABA MVP: Three, Julius Erving for three straight years, 1974-76
Along with moving around several times during franchise history, the Nets have changed hands quite a bit. Here’s the complete list of majority owners and years at the helm.
- Joe Tsai: 2018 to present
- Mikhail Prokhorov: 2010-17
- Bruce Ratner: 2003-10
- YankeeNets: 1999-2003
- Raymond Chambers and Lewis Katz: 1998-99
- Secaucus Seven: 1978-98
- Roy Boe: 1969-78
- Arthur Brown: 1967-69
At one time, the pop culture icon and mogul owned a very small share of the Nets, but he sold out at a profit to focus on other endeavors. Joseph Tsai, a successful businessman and philanthropist, is the owner of the team. He initially held a 49% minority stake that he acquired in October 2017. He exercised his option to acquire the remaining shares in August 2019.
This is a rather exclusive list. While 13 players who spent at least some time with the Nets have been enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame, the team has raised just six numbers to the rafters. Here are the honored players along with time spent with the Nets and dates their jerseys were retired.
- 3 — Drazen Petrovic, G, 1990-93, Nov. 11, 1993
- 5 — Jason Kidd, G, 2001-08, Oct. 17, 2013
- 23 — John Williamson, G, 1973-80, Dec. 7, 1990
- 25 — Bill Melchionni, G, 1969-76, September 1976
- 32 — Julius Erving, F, 1973-76, April 3, 1987
- 52 — Buck Williams, F, 1981-89, April 11, 1999
Originally founded as the New Jersey Americans in 1967, the team was rebranded as the Nets and moved to New York for the 1968 through 1977 seasons. The club headed back to the Garden State from there and remained in the state until 2012, when the franchise returned to the city and adopted the moniker of Brooklyn Nets.
The official NBA.com site for the Nets can be found here. It’s a solid spot to keep on top of the latest news surrounding the team, and you can also find information on tickets to the games. The club also maintains a presence on all of the major social media platforms. For other coverage, you can check out highly regarded blogs such as Nothin’ But Nets and Nets Daily.
It would certainly set you back a pretty penny. According to the latest NBA franchise valuations from Forbes, the Nets check in with a price tag of $2.5 billion. That places them in seventh place among the league’s 30 teams. The New York Knicks top the charts with a value of $4.6 billion, while the Memphis Grizzlies bring up the rear at $1.3 billion.
