How To Bet On NBA Basketball

When it comes to betting on NBA Basketball there are a huge amount of markets for punters to choose from. By far the most popular league for wagering on is the NBA and in this section you will learn how to bet on NBA Basketball. We look at the most popular markets like NBA Betting lines, NBA Spreads, NBA live betting and NBA Outright markets. So, no matter what your punting preference may be, our guide to betting on NBA Basketball is well worth a read.  

Online Basketball Betting-NBA Money Lines

When it comes to betting on basketball the most popular market with punters is the Money Line. If you are considering placing a wager on the NBA money line market, you will simply be betting on either team to win. The key to turning a profit on money line bets is to consistently find the best odds.

Prices can vary quite a bit from bookie to bookie, so always make sure you find the best price possible. In our experience bet365 and Ladbrokes are usually up there when it comes to quality of NBA line betting odds. So, if you are looking for a betting site for placing basketball line wagers, those two are worth checking out.

Online Basketball Betting: NBA Spreads

Spread betting, or handicap betting, is another very common wager type popular with basketball bettors. NBA spread betting is available with the vast majority of online betting sites in the UK and this is when bookmakers use a handicap system. The size of the handicap is calculated on the perceived difference in ability between the two teams. The heavier the favourite, the bigger the spread that they will have to cover in order for your wager to be a winning one.

For example, if the Golden State Warriors were facing the lowly LA Clippers bookmakers might offer odds on the Warriors -12.5 and the Clippers +12.5. So, if you back the Warriors you need them to win by 13 points or more in order to win your bet. If you back the Clippers, you need to lose by 12 points or less to collect. Some bookmakers offer alternative spreads which allow you to adjust the handicap in either direction for bigger or skinnier odds. If you fancy a team to win handsomely (or lose heavily) the NBA spread line could be an ideal way to boost your bank balance.

Online Basketball Betting: NBA Totals Betting

NBA totals betting is another form of wager that is increasing in popularity with UK basketball punters. Given that basketball is such a high scoring game, it is no surprise that betting on points totals is a favoured bet type. Most NBA matches finish with between 180-220 total points scored by both teams, but this can vary.

Bookmakers make a prediction on how many points will be scored during a match, and you can bet on whether the points total at the end of the game is over or under the bookmaker’s prediction. The key to placing winning NBA point totals bets is to try and uncover teams that are consistently involved in high (or low) scoring matches. If you spot a trend you will improve your chances of pocketing a profit from NBA totals betting.

Online Basketball Betting: NBA Live Betting

No matter what the sport, live betting is one of the best ways for experienced punters to bet. If you think you know your basketball and are good at reading a game, NBA live betting could be just the ticket. Odds are adjusted as the match unfolds, and sometimes the bookies can get it spectacularly wrong. Two of the best UK bookies for NBA live betting are William Hill (who also stream live basketball) and Paddy Power.

NBA live betting gives shrewd punters the chance to get inflated odds in comparison to pre match line betting prices. So, if you know that a team has a reputation for starting slowly and they fall behind early on in a match, you will get much bigger odds if you back them in play than you would have before the game started. If your selected team manages to overturn the deficit and go on to win the match, you will be richly rewarded.

Online Basketball Betting: NBA Outrights

Now that the NBA is in the off season, NBA outrights are what most punters will be betting on. There is a wide range of options for NBA outright betting. You can place outright wagers on divisional winners, Eastern Conference Winner, Western Conference Winner and NBA Championship Winner.

You can place each way outright bets on the NBA Championship winner market and most bookmakers pay 1/2 odds for 1-2 places. So, to get a return your each way selection must reach the final. Another popular NBA Outright market is the NBA Most Valuable Player (MVP) winner. You can check out the latest outright odds for the 2019 NBA Championship below.

NBA Championship Odds 2019

The NBA Championship Final is the showpiece event of the sport and it is the match that every NBA player, coach and supporter wants to feature in. The regular NBA season starts in October and the playoffs begin in late April. The last two teams standing facing each other in the NBA Championship Final in June and the Golden State Warriors are a short price to retain the title after their 4-0 win against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Below are the latest odds for the NBA Championship 2019 with bet365.
