Ball So Hard have ruined the betting odds for the National Tournament
Before I get into the official betting odds for the 2019 National Tournament, I have to start with a disclosure that we don’t have these bets available to make anywhere. If you want to offer these to your local bookie, I’m not stopping you.
Odds to win the 2019 Las Vegas National Tournament
Ball So Hard -2500 (Bet $100 to win $4)
The Field +1000 (Bet $100 to win $1,000)
Ball So Hard have made future bets almost impossible to make. They have won the last four national titles, and barring any injuries or a few cases of the Vegas Flu, they are going to win their fifth this weekend.
Typically, you would have to make odds for every team to win it; that doesn’t make any sense in this tournament. Who would have the second-best odds? Teams like the Villains, Rudedogs and Flight Vegas all have good rosters, but none of them are as good as the Vegas Ballers were last year (who lost to Ball So Hard by 16 in the championship game). San Antonio Nation doesn’t have Chris Johnson on their roster, who was their best player last year and was named on the All-Tournament Team. X Over and Private Lessons know Ball So Hard better than anyone but can’t beat their full-strength roster in Tempe. Even if you could pick any of these teams as the second-favorite, the odds would have to be around 50-1.
Just think about how absurd some of the single game lines would be for Ball So Hard. Last year they beat the Rudedogs, a team who made it to Sunday as the six seed, in pool play by 36. Point differential will decide the top four seeds this year, so I’d imagine they’ll try to be as cut-throat as possible in pool play. They play the Boston Ballers, Green Valley Ballers and San Antonio Nation in pool F. I’d have them as -27.5 against Boston, -44.5 against Green Valley and -18.5 against San Antonio. Those are absurd.
Like I said, you cannot bet these on any official source provided by Ultimate Hoops. Given the lack of payout, I’m guessing you wouldn’t want to place any bets anyway.
