For most bettors, the NBA playoffs are one of the best times of the year to lay down a wager, but this year, it’s even better with new prop tools, exact matchup odds, MVP futures, and more. As there are now only eight teams left, future odds are starting to dwindle to the select few teams who still have a shot at greatness.
Prop Building Tools
Prop building tools might be new to occasional bettors as sportsbooks have just started offering this tool in recent years. With the prop-building tools offered at Bovada and BetOnline, you can build your props and wager on the rendered odds. To take advantage of this new tool, navigate to the sportsbook and then to the props section.
Once you find the new prop builder tool, you will see options to add players, stats, and more to create a wager. So if you think Kyrie Irvin will record a triple-double against the Bucks, you can add those stats and bet on the odds that are rendered by the prop builder tool.
