How to bet on the NBA basketball  

You 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.

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.

But there are plenty more ways to back a winner though. Read here our how to bet on NBA guide!

How To Read Our Free NBA Picks  

There are a lot of betting markets available on every game but our tipsters are focusing on the match winner (also called Money Line) or match handicap markets, since other markets such as points spread, total points, etc.. are very tricky.

As a result, you will see the following possible picks:

  • 1 if we predict that the home team wins the match

  • 2 if we predict that the away team wins the match

Furthermore, you could see an amount of points of handicap attached to a team. The handicap points (displayed as either + or – a value, such as +11.5 points) is factored into the final score to determine the game’s outcome for the purpose of the bet.

NBA Betting Strategy   

With an 82-game season and the playoffs, the NBA gives punters a great opportunity to place bets. Anyway, the NBA is a very hard to predict league as there a lot of factors to taking into account for each NBA game such as:

FatigueTeams often play 3-4 games per week - with plenty of contests taking place on back-to-back nights. Well rested teams have a real advantage on teams who play two straight games or are playing their 3rd game in 5 days

Injuries and Team NewsThe absence of major players in the starting lineup is one of the key factors that could influence the odds and the outcome of a game.

MotivationSome teams know very quickly that they will fail to qualify for the play-offs. The more they lose, the greater the chance of getting a good draft number for next season. This is the reason why some team can deliberately lose matches in the 2nd half of the season.

NBA Power RankingsNBA Power Rankings are a large collection of offensive and defensive stats for each NBA team. Eg. Shooting percentage, Rebounds per game, Steals per game, Points scored per game, Points conceded per game, etc..

Home and Away FormMany teams have a strong home court record but they are very poor on the travels.

An algorithm devoleped by our tipsters, plus human experience and betting talent, is the basis to our winning NBA tips. This is why our picks have a winning rate of over 69% throughout the NBA season!

Another good strategy on the NBA play-offs is the NBA Zig-Zag Theory.

2021/22 NBA Format 

The 76th Edition of the NBA is all set to kick off the regular season from 19th October 2021. NBA 2021-22 season will feature a total of 30 teams. The teams are divided in 2 conferences (Eastern Conference and Western Conference) and every team will play a total of 82 matches in the regular season. Last season suffered game cuts due to the Coronavirus and the Olympic Games.

The top 6 teams from both the conference will advance to NBA Playoffs. teams finishing from 7th to 10th in each conference will play the Play-In tournament and fight for the remaining two berths in the play-offs in each NBA Conference.

The Playoffs will be played in the same way as before, a full bracket in the traditional way with 16 teams. All matchups will be under the best-of-seven format. Teams with the best seasonal record will get home advantage and will play game 1, 2 and 5 at home and 7 (if needed). Teams with a worse seasonal record will play game 3,4 and 6 (if needed) at home.

How Does The NBA Play-In Tournament Work 

The Play in tournament will be played between April 12 and 15, 2022, the new format consists of teams ranked 7-10 from the regular season playing against each other to earn a berth in the playoffs. Teams ranked 7 and 8 from each conference will have to play to defend their spot for the playoffs, they will play a round of three games.

The winner of that round mentioned above gets the 7th spot in the playoffs. The loser of that round must play the a game against the winner team of the 9th and 10th matchup of the play in tournament. The last game will be between the loser of the first round (7th-8th team) and the winner of the second round game (9th-10th team), the team that wins that game enters the playoffs as the 8th seeded team.

When is the 2022 NBA All Star break? 

The 2022 NBA All-star Game is scheduled to be played on 20th February 2022. Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland will host the 2022 NBA All-Star Game.

Who won the NBA Title last year? 

Milwaukee Bucks beat Phoenix Suns in last year's NBA Finals to win the first NBA title in 50 years. Giannis Antetokounmpo was awarded the Bill Russel Finals MVP trophy. The Bucks became the fifth team in the NBA history to win the NBA Finals after trailing 2-0 and the first to do it by winning the next four games since Miami against Dallas in 2006.

Kevin Durant and James Harden's Brooklyn Nets, Russell Westbrook and LeBron James' Los Angeles Lakers are heavy favourites to win the 2021/22 NBA title this year.

The 76ers, Suns, Hawks, Heat, Clippers, Nuggets, Mavericks (led by head coach Jason Kidd) and Celtics are other notable contenders punters should keep in mind.

  • Lakers - 3/1
  • Nets - 3/1

  • Suns - 14/1
  • Clippers - 16/1

  • Mavericks - 22/1
  • Hawks - 25/1
  • Celtics - 40/1

Despite making it to the Eastern Conference Finals, the Atlanta Hawks have the 12th best odds to win the title while the Warriors have the 4th-highest odds to win it all despite missing the playoffs this past season.

2022 MVP Award Player Odds 

With 11/2 odds, Mavericks’ guard Luka Doncic has the best odds of winning the MVP award in the 2021-22 NBA season. At 7/1 odds, both Joel Embiid and Kevin Durant have the next best odds for winning this award.

Other potential candidates at the top of the list include "the Greek Freak" Giannis Antetokounmpo, Stephen Curry, James Harden, Trae Young, Kawhi Leonard, Kyrie Irving, Devin Booker, Chris Paul and, of course, LeBron James.

Other NBA Betting Markets

There are a lot of outright betting markets when it comes to betting on the NBA.

For most points per game, Bradley Beal is projected to lead all other players in PPG.  Stephen Curry, Luka Doncic,  Damian Lillard, Joel Embiid, and Zion Williamson are the closest contenders.

As for most assists per game, LA Lakers' Russell Westbrook is expected to lead the league, with James Harden, Luka Doncic, tae Young, Nikola Jokic, Chris Paul and LeBron James the other potential winners.

As for the defensive player of the year, the likes of Ben Simmons, Anthony Davis, Draymond Green, Rudy Gobert, Matisse Thybulle and Bam Adebayo and the favourites while Michael Porter Jr., Jordan Poole, Keldon Johnson, Dejounte Murray, Kevin Porter Jr and OG Anunoby are the smartest options in the Most Improved Player market.

As for the Sixth Man of the Year, the experts are picking Kevin Huerter, Patty Mills, Rudy Gay, Lamarcus Aldridge, Tyler Herro, Jordan Clarkson, and Derrick Rose as the favs.

In the Head Coach of the Year market, the likes of Steve Nash, James Borrego, Ime Udoka, Steve Kerr, Nate McMillan, Wille Green, and Monty Williams are the most popular entries.

Jalen Green, Davion Mitchell, Cade Cunningham, Jalen Suggs and Evan Mobley top the list of the potential winners of the Rookie Of The Year award (the prize that goes to the best player in his first season within the league).
