NBA Basketball Betting
Our NBA Betting guide makes it easy for Sports bettors to find all the NBA odds and NBA sportsbooks in one convenient location and represented in a easy to understand manner. Going from sportsbook to sportsbook to compare NBA odds can be a time consuming and frustrating process. To make life easier we collate the money line, points spread and total betting odds from various reputable bookies in one place.
Many punters believe that NBA betting presents a better opportunity to profit over the long haul when compared to other sports leagues like football. This has nothing to do with the difficulty in making betting decisions, but more with the length of the season and high volume of games running almost daily between November and April and then throughout the playoffs until June.
Types Of NBA Bets
Fans betting on the NBA will recognise the typical bet types found in other sports.
Moneyline NBA Betting - this is a straight wager on the outcome of the game - namely, who will win, regardless of the point spread or margin of victory. We show those odds on this page for upcoming matches. Example: Denver Nuggets –180 vs. Portland Trail Blazers +150
NBA Point Spread Betting - This is the most common form of betting and it involves betting against the point spread, i.e. the number of points one team is "giving up" to another team. This is also called the "Line" - we show Live Lines on a separate page. The favourite is shown with a minus sign and the underdog with a plus sign. Example: Denver Nuggets –6 vs. Portland Trail Blazers +6. Check out our Live NBA Lines (link here)
NBA Totals Betting - also referred to as Over / Under betting. These lines are
set by the bookmaker in terms of what they think will be the total number of
points scored. You can bet whether you think the total will be over or under
this number. Example: Denver Nuggets vs. Portland - Total 208.5
Other NBA Betting Markets
The Current NBA Championship comprises thirty teams in two conferences (East and West) and six divisions. Most sportsbooks offer odds conference and divisional winners. The most championships have been won by the Boston Celtics at 17 but the LA Lakers are closing in with 16.
Many other NBA betting opportunities exist like the MVP of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, Rookie of the Year, as well as the Bill Russel Finals MVP Award. Other betting markets open up during the transfer window when sportsbooks offer odds on where players will end up and sometimes even some interesting props on picks and the trading of picks.
Needless to say, there are always interesting NBA props to bet on involving the superstars of the League, coach movements and of course trouble makers and bad boys.
