Sportsbooks Set Odds For Possible Kevin Durant Suspension

  • Kevin Durant has -500 odds to not be suspended by the NBA or Brooklyn Nets in April.
  • The Brooklyn Nets are favored to win the 2021 NBA Championship with +225 odds.
  • Durant has not played in an NBA game since February after straining his hamstring.

BROOKLYN – The Brooklyn Nets are easily one of the best teams in the NBA, but they’ve also been engulfed in controversy all season long. Whether it’s Kyrie Irving taking off time or the acquisition of James Harden the Nets have been the center of the NBA universe for most of the season.

The Nets roller coaster of a season has been magnified by the midseason additions of former All-Star’s Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge who are looking to help the franchise win its first-ever NBA Finals.

Despite the outside noise the Nets are the top team in the Eastern Conference and seem poised to make a deep playoff run when healthy.

Bovada has the Nets listed as the betting favorite to win the NBA Finals with +225 odds despite the off-court antics that have plagued the team.

The post would immediately make its way through social media as many people saw firsthand the vulgar language KD direct at Rappaport. Although the league has fined him $50,000, it remains to be seen if Durant will be suspended for his actions.

One positive sign for Durant is that he did apologize to fans for seeing him use such vulgar language in his most recent media session.

However, that apology might not keep him from being suspended for at least one game as the NBA or the Nets could hand out disciplinary action in the coming weeks. Bovada has listed an NBA Special betting prop revolving around whether or not KD will get suspended in April.

Will Kevin Durant Be Suspended by the NBA or The Brooklyn Nets in April 2021?

  • Yes +300
  • No -500

The best bet for this prop is to take the -500 odds that KD is not suspended in April. Although the Nets own the top seed in the Eastern Conference Durant has yet to even play in an NBA game since February after injuring his hamstring. Suspending Durant likely won’t happen since he is injured and the Nets likely don’t want to make this situation more than what it is. The Nets' focus is likely on getting KD as healthy as possible going into the playoffs especially since he missed all of last year with a torn Achilles. With that in mind take the -500 odds that Durant isn’t suspended at all for anything for April.
