The most popular bets made in basketball are on the total points scored in a game. This is called the total or the over/under as you will see listed in each game preview. The other information you will see is the Money Line and the spread for the game. Money Line bets are called the same in College Basketball, NFL, and other professional sports because it means who will win the game straight up with no handicap added to even out the odds.

The betting line also called the point spread for NBA games adds in the handicap equation.
Betting on a team at +1.5 points or -1.5 points means that the team will have to cover the spread by at least 1.5 points to be considered a winning bet. It’s called the point spread because you are wagering on the difference between the final score also known as the spread. This is different than a puck line in the NHL or run line in Major League Baseball and hockey respectively because in basketball we are using a ball and not a hockey puck.

The total points scored in a basketball game by both teams determines the total and if it is over that number then an over bet would win and if it is under then the under bet would win. If it is right on the number, then the wager would be considered a push.

This number is one you can bet on greater than or less than the predicted total points scored in the basketball match when you add both teams total points. Here at Sports Information Traders, we analyze and breakdown every single NBA game of the regular season and playoffs. Our NBA analysts provide detailed news articles with predictions expert opinion, picks, betting tips, betting lines, and computer-generated prediction out for today’s NBA game.

Types Of Bets You Can Make On The NBA

Like other major sports there are a lot of different bets you can make on an NBA Game and more if you like to bet on teasers, propositions, and parlays. Below is an overview for Money Line bets, Spread Bets, Parlays, Live Bets, Proposition Bets, and Futures.

NBA Money Line Betting

NBA Money Line Betting is the easiest way to bet on an NBA game. A money line bet on
basketball is who will win the game team A or team B. If the game ends in a tie then the money line bet would be a loser. There is no chance to push only to win or lose with a money line wager.

NBA Betting Against The Spread

Betting basketball against the spread is called wagering on the “MoneyLine”. While baseball & hockey use specific terms such as the puckline and the runline Basketball and Football use just the “MoneyLine”. The favored team is always going to be minus points and the underdog will be plus points. While the odds change in basketball depending on what teams are being bet on and if any injuries happen before the game starts. Spread betting in basketball is similar to football but NHL betting is more closely associated with MLB betting.

NBA Parlay Betting

Parlay bets are a way to take a higher risk and make more money if you win multiple bets. With each extra bet you have a higher payout but it’s a zero-sum game where if you lose one bet then you lose all of the wagers so the risk is higher. You can parlay multiple games for basketball and if you correctly pick who will win multiple games then your bet will be counted as a win. Sportsbooks like DraftKings have a race to 10 points in the 1st quarter, race to 20 points in the 2nd quarter, points by each player, steals per game, and other intriguing wagers that make the game even more fun to watch.

NBA Live Betting Tips

Live betting is exactly what it sounds like. You can place a wager on the game as it is happening in real time. Odds fluctuate based on what has happened in the game so far. NBA Live betting is a way to make a lot of extra money if you are an experienced sports bettor. Due to this most sportsbooks online limit the amount of action you can place during the game as sharps tend to cover a much higher percentage of live bets compared to straight up wagers. The typical wagers you can place are money line, totals, and prop bets such as final score, how many points scored in a half, total blocks, and total steals by different players.

NBA Player Prop Bets & Team Proposition Picks

As mentioned above an individual NBA Player Prop bet is considered side action in sports
betting slang. This is a wager on an event happening or not happening based on a team or players performance in a basketball game. The amount of points, steals, baskets scored in a period, and other fun props make the game interesting to watch.

Team proposition picks are bets you can make based on a team’s performance. Total points in a game by a single team is a twist on the over/under bets that you typically see and can be advantageous to a sharp bettor if you know that one team is likely to score a lot of points but don’t believe the total points will go above the total. Some of the favorite NBA prop picks our clients like to bet on when available are the first team to score 10 points in a quarter, total season wins, division winners, and over/under betting picks.

NBA Futures Betting Picks

Speaking of total season wins. This is one way to make a lot of money and gives you the ability to hedge your bets to guarantee a profit. NBA Futures Betting, as the name implies is a basketball bet on a future outcome for the NBA season. These picks we give out to our clientele here at Sports Information Traders ranges from division winner, conference champion, NBA Championship, and we even cover individual player futures such as who will win the MVP of the league. As the dates get closer to expiration the payouts are lower. The one drawback of NBA futures is that it ties up your funds until the expiration of the event.

NBA Totals Betting Predictions

NBA Over/Under betting predictions from our analysts tell you what the final score of the game is predicted to be. With our computer software that generates these picks in each article above you can see how many goals each team is predicted to score in the game. The total of those two teams sets the over/under that you can bet on and we help you pick what way to go whether it’s over or under. For example if you pick over 221.5 points that means there needs to be 222 points scored between the two teams for you to be a winner.
