Betting Odds For Space Jam: A New Legacy Now Out

  • Space Jam: A New Legacy will be released on July 16, 2021.
  • The movie pits Lebron James’ Tune Squad against the Goon Squad.
  • Online sportsbooks have already set odds on various occurrences during the game.

LOS ANGELES - Space Jam: A New Legacy is on the way to theaters this summer, and sportsbooks have already set odds for the highly anticipated matchup between the Tune Squad and the Goon Squad.

The matchup has a spread as well as a total points O/U, and there are even some other fun ways to wager on the upcoming movie.

Tune Squad vs. Goon Squad Spread Betting

The movie revolves around Lebron James’ Tune Squad taking on the Goon Squad, and one expects a photo finish.

Given that this is, after all, a movie, the spread that the online sportsbooks have come up with makes a lot of sense.

Tune Squad (2021) Vs Goon Squad Game Spread

  • Goon Squad +1.5 -300
  • Tune Squad (2021) -1.5 +200

The original Space Jam ended with Michael Jordan scoring the game-winning dunk to take the Tune Squad to victory over the Monstars, 78-77.

Expecting a similar method of victory from the Tune Squad this time, the online sportsbooks have cleverly put a Tune Squad -1.5 spread on the matchup.

This means that if there are any last-minute game-winning dunks, the Tune Squad still will not cover the spread.

They say that good teams win, but great teams cover. The original Tune Squad must not have been a great team, but maybe this version will be.

Tune Squad vs. Goon Squad Totals Betting

In the 1996 Space Jam, the Tune Squad and the Monstars combined for 155 points, a relic of an age before the three-pointer really came into its own.

In 1996, offenses weren’t what they were in the modern NBA, with the Chicago Bulls leading the 95-96 scoring table with 105.2 points per game.

In 2021, the Brooklyn Nets are scoring 119 points per game. Assuming the environment of the NBA influences how these movies are made, one could reasonably expect more scoring in Space Jam: A New Legacy.

Tune Squad (2021) Vs Goon Squad Game Over/Under

  • Over 155 Points -500
  • Under 155 Points +300

The online sportsbooks certainly seem to expect this outcome, with the Over being heavily favored.

A related prop bet asks bettors which version of the Tune Squad will score more overall points, with the 2021 edition being -140 favorites.

Hopefully, the new Space Jam can live up to the hype.
