What is NBA Betting?

The NBA (National Basketball Association) is the main professional league for basketball in the US and Canada. The league contains 30 teams split into two conferences (Eastern Conference and Western Conference). The season-ending NBA Finals take place in May/June and are contested between the champions of the Eastern and Western conferences. 

The NBA Finals consist of a best-of-seven series of games. Whoever wins the most games wins the Finals. As well as the NBA Finals, you can bet on the NBA Playoffs and all games included.  

Betting on the NBA Basketball 

Whether you follow the Lakers or just want to find value on total points and rebounds, there’s a betting line for you. New York mobile sportsbook apps run lines on the winner of the game (moneyline), the number of points (totals) and the point spread. Plus, you can bet on small events taking place during the NBA game. 

To find the betting line you want, open the sportsbook lobby and click on ‘Basketball’ in the menu. Alternatively, find your games by sorting the list in date order. You’ll find a list of ‘live’ games for in-play betting, or ‘upcoming’ markets for pregame wagering. You can also bring up futures bets that won’t take place for days or months. 

NBA Moneyline Bets

The moneyline is a straight bet on the winner of the game. In the event of a tie, your stake is normally refunded. One team is assigned favorite and will be odds-on to win. The other team is the underdog and will be odds against. 

For example, the Memphis Grizzlies are playing the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors are hot favorites and are priced at -550. The Warriors are +400. That means you would have to bet $550 on the Warriors in order to win $100 (plus your stake). For the underdog Warriors, you would win $400 for a $100 stake.  

Point Spread

The point spread assigns the favorite a points handicap before the game starts. The underdog receives the same number of points as a nominal “head start”. The win odds are changed to reflect the new starting points. 

In our example, Memphis +10 are -110, while the Warriors are -110 with a -10 handicap. Memphis have suddenly gone odds-on after being assigned a 10-point lead before the game begins. If Memphis managed to ‘cover the spread’ and win by more than 10 points, your spread bet would win. 

Betting Totals (Over/Under) in NBA

The totals bet is a wager on whether the total points in an NBA game will be over or under the mark set by the sportsbook. For example, our game between Memphis and Golden State is priced like this:

Over 223 points: -110
Under 223 points: -110

You must correctly guess whether the total in the game is over or under 223. In addition, you can close out totals bets as the game progresses. 

Futures NBA Bets

Futures wagers are bets on NBA Finals winners, oftentimes before the season has even begun. You may find value on certain teams without knowing which teams are likely to get their seasons off to a good start. 

NBA Prop Betting

Prop bets are wagers on specific outcomes during an NBA game. Oftentimes, they have nothing to do with the final score. 

Basketball is great for props as there are so many individual stats that rack up during the game.

What happens to your NBA bet if the game is postponed?
