Basketball has long been one of the world’s most popular sport, today boasting some of the most iconic teams and sportsmen on the planet.
It’s a thrilling game, that only gets more exciting when there’s money riding on it. Betting on the NBA continues to be one of the most popular sports to bet on thanks to its high scoring nature and stars of the show.
NBA best bets often include the likes of Steph Curry, Lebron James and Kevin Durant as teams battle it through both the season and post-season ahead of NBA Finals.
How to Bet on NBA GamesYou can actually bet on the NBA in a number of different ways and most major bookmakers will offer a number of NBA betting lines and markets to play throughout the season, meaning you can back the likes of the LA Lakers, Cleveland Cavs and Miami Heat however you please.
Naturally, one of the most popular wagers is the match result bet which essentially sees you place a bet on the team you think will win the match. There are plenty more ways to back a winner though. Below you’ll find a list of the more common NBA betting tips and markets in basketball…
Total BettingThis NBA betting pick is a wager on the total number of points scored within a game. It doesn’t matter who wins, all you need to predict is whether the total number will be over or under a set score. Naturally the odds will vary dependent on the score you bet on, so it’s always wise to study the form before making a decision.
Handicap BettingThis wager is a great way to boost odds within the match result market as you are giving a handicap to a team. This means the opposition essentially have a head start making it more likely they will win based on that.
It’s a good NBA bet to take if there’s a clear favourite and you wish to bet on them.
Quarter/Half BettingWith Quarter and Half betting you’re essentially placing a match result bet but on who you think will be leading at various points through the match. A Half Time/Full Time bet is also a similar wager which allows you to predict who will be winning at half time and then full time. These carry much better odds than a match result bet.
