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.

2023/24 NBA Format 

The 78th Edition of the NBA is all set to kick off the regular season from 24th October 2023. NBA 2023/24 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.

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 In-Season Tournament Work

Basketball fans will have even more competition to enjoy this NBA 2023-24 season with the new In-Season Tournament, or NBA Cup.

The NBA's goals are to create “another competition to win, engage fans in a new way and drive additional interest in the early portion of the regular-season schedule.

The In-Season Tournament will consist of two stages: Group Play and the Knockout Rounds.

The inaugural In-Season Tournament will tip off on Friday, Nov. 3 and culminate with the Championship on Saturday, Dec. 9.  The Semifinals (Thursday, Dec. 7) and Championship will take place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Each conference will be split into three five-team groups.

Each team will play four games against the other teams in its group − two at home and two on the road. In-Season tournament games apart from the Championship will also count as regular-season games.

The winner of each group plus a wild card from each conference (team with the best record that finished second in its group) advance to the quarterfinals.

Beyond winning the NBA Cup, players on teams that reach the quarterfinals and beyond will receive additional financial compensation − $500,000 for each player on the championship team; $200,000 for players on the runner-up team; and so on...

A tournament MVP and all-tournament honors will also be awarded.

How Does The NBA Play-In Tournament Work 

The 2023-24 NBA regular season will be ended on April 14, 2024, and then the Play-in tournament will take place from 16-19 April 2024. The 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.

2024 NBA championship: Odds to win 

The Denver Nuggets celebrated their first ever NBA championship victory in the previous season, defeating the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals but the best betting sites see the Milwaukee Bucks and the Boston Celtics as favorites to win the title.

The Bucks have signed Damian Lillard to form one of the NBA's very best duos alongside two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. As a result of the trade, Jrue Holiday finished to the Boston Celtics,  improving a team that was just one game away from making it to the NBA Finals for a second-consecutive year.

With its core of Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray and Aaron Gordon, the Nuggets will once again be among the title favorites, as well as the Phoenix Suns (who added Bradley Beal) and the Golden State Warriors (who added Chris Paul).

The Los Angeles Clippers, Memphis Grizzlies and Sacramento Kings will also have their say in the Western Conference conversation while the Miami Heat, Philadelphia 76ers and Cleveland Cavaliers should also be viewed as contenders to come out of the East.

  • Milwaukee Bucks 4/1
  • Boston Celtics 5/1
  • Denver Nuggets 11/2
  • Phoenix Suns 15/2
  • Los Angeles Lakers 14/1
  • Golden State Warriors 16/1
  • Los Angeles Clippers 22/1
  • Philadelphia 76ers 30/1
