Paul George trade to the Rockets would impact betting markets and futures, sportsbook says, the original online sportsbook now celebrating its 30th season, is closely monitoring the rumored trade of Paul George to the Houston Rockets and its potential impact on current and future NBA betting markets.


According to Tim Williams, Director of Public Affairs for, "The prospect of Paul George joining the Rockets could significantly impact several wagering categories involving the Rockets as a team and their individual players. As a star player, George would add considerable value to the Rockets, potentially making them a playoff-contending team in the Western Conference."


This potential shift could lead to significant changes in various types of bets, including futures, team props, and player props. For instance, the line on the Rockets' season win totals for the 2023-24 season would rise with the addition of George. This presents an excellent opportunity for bettors looking to capitalize on adjusted odds before they tighten.


"Player prop bets would also see a lot of action," Williams adds. "George's addition would potentially boost the stats of the Rockets' younger players like Jalen Green and Kevin Porter Jr. by taking pressure off them, thereby making their over/under totals an attractive proposition."


In the realm of team prop bets, the Rockets' performance metrics could see a boost. For example, their season win totals, both overall and at home, would rise if George is acquired by the team. His experience and leadership would also impact team props like 'team to score first' or 'team to lead at halftime,' giving bettors more confidence in the Rockets' ability to start games strong.
