Different bets available for NBA
Each bookmaker has a different betting offer, for example see this Premier Bet review to get an idea of one of the leading African operators on the market. The first thing you need to do before getting started is to choose a bookmaker that will offer the maximum specific basketball bets.
Indeed, for the same NBA match, it is possible to bet on:
– the winner
– Results excluding overtime
– Number of points scored by a team or by both teams
– word spread
The above bets are possible on the scale of a full match, but also on the scale of half time or a quarter.
Don’t forget the existence of combination bets too, and wait for the right moment to place a live bet if you see important match action or substitutions that could change the outcome of the match!
To bet on the NBA competition itself, you have the opportunity to place your bets:
– Winner of the NBA Finals
– Winner of each conference
– Winner of each division
– Number of wins in the regular season for a single team.
Our Tips for Betting on the NBA Effectively
Before you start betting on the NBA, here are some tips you can use to maximize your chances. These tips go hand in hand with our previous tips for betting on all sports.
- Follow Your Bets Live
Whenever possible, choose a bookmaker with features to follow live matches, for example an integrated player showing NBA matches and/or summaries in real time. This will allow you, in particular, to cashout in order to limit the possible loss of funds if the outcome of the match is not in your favor.
- Avoid betting on impulse
In basketball, it can be tempting to think of short-term and chain live bets over several quarters of the same game, especially if you place several losing bets and you think the outcome could change a lot. This is not a good strategy, as you can lose even more money with this kind of impulsive betting. Never forget that every bet must be carefully thought out!
