Because you should be able to bet on anything, we bring you NBA lockout odds.

No Dan Gilbert, you cannot bet because you can control the outcome.

Oddsmakers at Bodog think that there likely will be an NBA season, but not until we’re past the New Year’s Day college bowl games. Although they think it’s nearly even the full season is lost. Here are the three prop bets.

Will a 2011-2012 NBA Regular Season game be played before January 1st, 2012?
Yes                  +200
No                   -300

Will the NBA cancel the entire 2011-2012 Regular Season?
Yes                  -150
No                   +110

What percent of the BRI (Basketball Related Income) will the Players receive during the next Collective Bargaining Agreement?
Over/Under                    50.5%

Bet the under on that one.

    Huh? “Yes” to the question of whether the NBA will cancel the season is -150, which means the oddsmakers DON’T think there will be a season.

      He’s right..here’s how the numbers break down into percentages:

      Will a 2011-2012 NBA Regular Season game be played before January 1st, 2012?
      Yes – 33%
      No – 75%

      Will the NBA cancel the entire 2011-2012 Regular Season?
      Yes – 60%
      No – 47.62%

      “..so you’re telling me there’s a chance?”

    “Oddsmakers at Bodog think that there likely will be an NBA season, but not until we’re past the New Year’s Day college bowl games. ”

    1) Not be a game before 1/1/12(-300)

    2) The entire season will be cancelled (-150)

    You are misreading it if you think that means they are saying that games WILL BE played after 1/1/12. The -150 is for the entire season being cancelled. The -300 is for a game being played before 1/1/12.
