Watching the NBA betting lines as soon as they are released, which comes out the night before or even the morning of a game, this will help you get more value out of your wagers. Betting early can get you favorable odds before Sportsbooks adjust in line with public betting.

Public Betting Explained
Public betting refers to where most of the money and who the bets are backing in a particular matchup. If the team who is favored has the highest number of bets or the most amount of money going towards them, this would be considered the public being on the favorite. Public betting can be very useful for bettors, while sportsbooks will adjust their odds to keep their books balanced and not risk a loss, so staying ahead of the curve could help you net bigger profits from your bets. By keeping up with public betting trends you can identify who the smart money is backing. For example, if the Magic are up against the Bulls and you see most of the bets are backing the Magic to win, but more money is backing the Bulls, it’s very likely the higher value wagers are coming from those more seasoned bettors, then they think the Bulls will win.

Betting Markets Explained
The NBA and basketball in general are games that revolve around both player and team points and stats. The betting markets reflect this. The most common ways to bet on an NBA game are the winner of the match also known as the Money Line, the total points scored in a game also known as Over/Under and betting Against the Spread. There are many other ways in which you can bet on an NBA game including single player performances or even individual team performances. Some of the most popular types of NBA betting and what they mean are listed below. Be sure to check them out and see how they work.

Money Line Betting Explained
NBA Money line betting is the simplest way to bet on a matchup. Betting a team on the money line is simply picking that team to win the game. There are no ties in the NBA, and with an unlimited numbers of Overtime periods that are played until a winner is decided, the money line has two outcomes, Team X or Team Y will win, or from a bettor’s perspective, right or wrong, win or lose. The Money Line is a better option for bettors because the odds won’t be too bad to make it worthwhile, unlike NCAAB Betting, whereby you can get a major conference school vs a small conference school with the money line odds of -10000+, or in some case not even offering odds at all. There is a better chance of a more even match up in the Pro teams, and thus the odds tend to be much closer. There are also ways to get greater odds on a match by picking the upset if you take underdog to win the match against a more favored Opponent.

Against the Spread Betting Explained
Against the Spread betting is by far the most popular way that people bet on the NBA, and is also what Sports Betting Pros excels at picking Sport Game Winners. When betting Against the Spread, you are betting for the favorite to win by more than a spread number set by the sportsbooks, or betting that the underdog keeps the game closer than that of said spread number, by either winning outright or losing by less than the total spread number. One reason NBA against the spread betting is popular is that it evens the playing field and makes either side of the match a betting option. For example, if the Kings are in a matchup against the Lakers, and the Kings are -7 against or 7-point favorites against the spread, this means if you pick the Kings then they will have to covert the spread by 8 or more points, while the Lakers must win or lose by 6 or less to cover the spread. If the match finishes in the middle, i.e. a 7 point Kings win, for example 117-110, then the game will be a push and your stake will be returned. In most cases you will see spread lines end with .5 of a point to avoid the possibility of there being a push.


Over Under Betting Explained
Over/Under betting is a terrific way to wager on a match-up when you are not sure about either team. Over/Under is where you can on the total combined points from both teams. For example, Sportsbooks set the line at 208.5, and if both teams combined score reaches 209 or more points are scored the Over hits, if it’s 208 or fewer, then the Under hits. Over/Under Betting offers a great alternative to betting on one team or the Money Line or Against the Spread betting. Over/Under are typically set anywhere between 180 and 240 points. The exciting thing with Over/Under betting is that every possession and every shot counts. You can win or lose an Over/Under bet on a buzzer beater.


Player Proposition Bets Explained
Player proposition bets or as most people call them Prop Bets, are bets on the propositions of something occurring or not occurring of a specific event which is typically a team, or player stat line. The most common types of Player Props are based around the three categories Points, Assists, and Rebounds, or at times, a line that has an Over/Under total combining of all three. These are great to wager on when you have a potential mismatch on the floor, such as a dominating center vs a team that gives up points in the paint.


Team Proposition Bets
Team prop bets are like Player prop bets in which you are not directly betting on a winning team but of their performances in the matchup. This can be done in numerous ways, but most will revolve around points. For example, total team points, rather than a match points line, or the first team to score 20 points. Being able to wager on one team or the other offers greater flexibility when Team Prop betting. You may like one team more than the other but at the same time may feel the spread is too high, or do not feel confident in the other team scoring enough points for the overs to hit on the match. In these situations, you can zero in on one team to make the most of these Team Prop Bets.
