Basketball – Betting Strategies!
In our next article, let’s look at basketball betting. This sport leaves few people indifferent.
Well, to begin with, we can definitely say that the line of bets on basketball is practically the same as on the main types of bets on football and hockey.
- There is a match time
- There is a bet on the victory of one and the other team
- In addition, there is a bet on a draw during the regular time of the match, which is extremely rare, but it does happen
- In addition, in this sport, bets are also accepted on the odds of teams
- Total bets
- Betting on individual player results
- Handicaps of players
- Comparison of players, who will score more points or who will make more rebounds, and so on and so forth
There are some differences between these types of bets from football and hockey bets, but they sound the same.
Let’s take a look at the main points of basketball betting:
- The total total in basketball matches can vary from 130 to 255, in any case, I personally saw such a total, maybe, sometimes, I have not seen more, although, for an all-star match. For this reason, there are more variations in totals in basketball games. Different bookmakers sometimes publish different lines, including for totals. In principle, it is possible to catch the total target for such a match.
- When betting on basketball, many serious bookmakers offer handicap purchases, that is, with the main handicap, you can buy several points without a significant increase or decrease in the odds. In football and hockey, however, in tennis, the coefficients change very much.
Types of bets
Bets on basketball in many offices are accepted for the main time of the match, in others with overtime taken into account. In basketball, as you probably know, there is a very small probability of a draw, in principle, this is a plus in betting on basketball. However, to hedge yourself, you can bet on H (+0.5), that is, buy half a handicap point on the team that you think will win, and your odds will not suffer much from this.
My personal favorite is basketball betting on some specific events like the Euroleague, World and European Championships, and my favorite is NBA betting. I would like to note that the rates on the NBA are very different from the rates on other sports, and sometimes even from European basketball. The main difference is the frequent games between the teams, sometimes 5 matches in a row happen in a week. Definitely, it helps the players to navigate the statistics, makes these statistics more accessible in terms of research. Information is power, and with a good percentage of your successful forecasts, you will be able to earn more actively.
Definitely, you and I are not alone in the world who love to bet on the NBA. When many people place bets on one event, the event is carefully calculated by the bookmakers. For this reason, it will be difficult to find underestimated events, however, it will be difficult to find surebets. Although, to be honest, I have played forks on the NBA many times.
From the recommendations for conducting bets: in general, for all the time that I have been in this area, I have come to an unequivocal opinion on betting on Flat’s strategy. In principle, this is exactly how I earned, I earn and I will do it. So, from the recommendations for the NBA – here it is best to make not too big bets, in the amount of 2, maximum 5 percent of the bank. You probably noticed that many players fill out their calendar, as if they are painting a zebra, black is a bad day, white is a good one, and since in our NBA matches are constantly taking place, I would not want to lose my entire bank quickly.
But here are some interesting facts for you when playing NBA bets:
- The summer break and the instability of the teams do not have time to make up for in the preseason, for this reason, in the matches of the beginning of the season in the NBA, teams most often do not break through large totals.
- Many teams are very furious in the transfer market and are heavily updated, this happens especially when buying teams, when organizing new teams, in general, under various circumstances. The most interesting thing is that even very successful and powerful purchases may not justify themselves right away, the team’s players cannot play right away – from here it is impossible to immediately enter the season with full armor.
- When the playoffs start in the NBA, teams, especially those in the middle, devote more time to playing defense, hence there is low implementation and lower results compared to the regular season.
- In addition, when betting on the NBA, it is necessary to take into account, as in all types of team sports: the state of the team, the number of injured, how the team plays at home and away, is there any team motivation (for example, the end of the season), or in live bets
- Naturally, you need to take into account a number of other factors, such as the form of the team, its performance at home and away, players’ injuries, the team’s motivation at the end of an already won match (when you bet on handicap or total).
I don’t know about others, I personally became interested in betting on the NBA for a very long time, but I had a break in this business. For more than 10 years, I even began to watch this game, as I became even more interested in betting on the NBA, in general, I began to understand not only statistics, but also teams, in terms, and so on. A damn interesting sport, though. If you are well versed in the NBA, in players, coaches, you know where to turn for a stat, then you can earn quite good money.
A little later I will write to you in which office it is better to place bets on the NBA.
But, before you start playing, it is better to decide in advance on the office. For betting on the NBA, the odds for the match with the smallest margin are important to you, the handicap is important to you, the purchase of the handicap is important to you, also the handicap on totals. It is quite possible to use several offices, if in one office you are satisfied with the odds before the match, and in another with the odds for live bets, then it is better to have an account both there and there. Choose a bookmaker carefully.
