What You Need to Know For NBA Betting Lines

The NBA is typically considered one of the most predictable of all major, North American professional sports leagues. In fact, since 1980, the NBA Finals has featured one of the following ten basketball legends: LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O’Neal, Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Isiah Thomas, Magic Johnson, Tim Duncan, Hakeem Olaijuwon and Dwayne Wade. The overwhelming talent and drive of these competitors tend to overwhelm most teams in the league.

The current environment is no different, with the supremacy of LeBron James giving way to the rise of small ball, lead by Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors. A select few teams are able to challenge the dominance of elite squads, let alone win four out of a seven game series. However, this disparity leads to superb opportunities to sniff out upsets, which can result in a great payday for NBA fans who monitor the pulse of the league, discovering superb odds that makes the risk worth it.

While elite teams are still defined by the quality of their superstars, in particular “big three” cornerstone players, the competitive gap has lessened somewhat for the rest of the association. The Eastern Conference is no longer noticeably weaker than the Western Conference, reversing a long trend that started after the Jordan era. This makes wagering on the NBA that much more exciting.

How to Bet On the NBA

For the most part, there are three types of bets that most sportsbooks provide for NBA games, the most popular of which are odds-based money lines. Favorites are given a negative number, such as -500, which shows that you have to bet $500 to win $100. Underdogs are given a positive number, such as +390, indicating that you have to bet $100 to win $390 on your wager.

You can also bet on the spread, which involves the number of points by which a team loses or wins. For example, if the game has a spread of 8 points, you can bet that the winner will win by at least eight or the loser will fall less than eight points short. 

Betting on whether a game will produce a certain number of points is another popular way of getting in on the action. You can wager on whether the two teams will combine to score points over or under a specific number. If an over/under for an NBA game is 220.5 points, a successful over bet for the game would involve a combined score of 221 or more while a winning under bet would result in a game of 220 or fewer points scored.
