A minimum of one sportsbook is anticipating huge issues for the New York Knicks subsequent season, or they’re making an attempt to guard towards it.
The SuperBook at Westgate Las Vegas listed the Knicks at 16:1 odds to win the 2020 NBA championship once they opened the percentages on Saturday, based on ESPN’s David Purdum. They’ve the fourth-best odds within the Japanese Convention for 2020, behind Milwaukee, Boston and Philly.
Why would a crew that went 17-65 this season have such good odds of successful all of it? The sportsbook factored in the opportunity of Kevin Durant and perhaps one other star signing with the crew. The Knicks even have the chance so as to add a high participant through the draft, the place they are going to have robust odds within the lottery.
The Knicks reportedly are concentrating on each Durant and Kyrie Irving in free company. It’s clever of sportsbooks to protect towards that in case the crew’s hopes do come true.
If the Knicks had been to get that far, it might mark an unbelievable turnaround. The crew final made the NBA Finals in 1999.
