Want to bet on sports events that happen in the distant future.
Sportbook future odds are odds provided on an event, well ahead of that event taking place.
While the final betting line gets posted closer to the event, sportsbook futures give you an idea of what the early odds are.
Mean while, sometimes hot teams fly under the radar, and their value exceeds what the less effective futures had been posted the week prior.
If you want to place a futures bet on a team, the best thing to do is shop around for the best number.
