What is the NBA?
The NBA is an American sports league which encompasses all the professional Basketball league in the USA, NBA is a hugely popular league in America and runs for 9 months of the year. Basketball is a fast-paced game and in the NBA teams often average over 100 points a game that's more than 2 points a minute. The NBA league in America consists of two conferences the Eastern and Western conference, then under the conferences are several divisions which the teams play in. Teams will play each other within each division, each conference and then cross-conference. The divisions are made up of areas of USA for each Basketball team to play in. There are 6 divisions in total and even some Canadian teams play in these. The 6 NBA divisions are the Atlantic division, Central Division, Southeast Division, Northwest Division, Pacific Division and the Southwest Division. The champions of each division are guaranteed a playoff place, then anybody else with enough points to be in the top 8 of each conference makes the playoffs of the NBA. The playoffs are the organised by conference culminating in conference championship games which are made up of a series of 7 games. The winners of these series of games then face each other in the playoff finals, one team from each conference plays in a series of 7 playoff games with the first to 4 claiming the title. In recent years Stephen Currey's Golden State Warriors and Lebron James ClevelandCavalierss have dominated the play offs. The total amount of time take to play the season is around 9 months, all the players are professional and mostly come from the American College Basketball system.
What Basketball Tips Do we Pick
Here at SBAT we love our Basketball and especially the NBA, we try and pick the very best tips for each NBA game to ensure you get the very best tips and predictions when placing a bet. With Basketball markets such as money line, over/under total points bets, player performance (player props), half bets and even quarter bets are all very popular. Here at SBAT we try and keep it simple and stick to Moneyline, over/under totals, or handicap bets (often known as the spread) so it is easy for you to bet. We may sometimes really see a player performance bet we like and pick that instead though but only if we really like it. All these markets are available with lots of different bookmakers including the likes of William Hill, Bet365, Betvictor and many more. NBA can be a great sport to bet on especially with the likes of the handicap markets which can often give huge value to the gambler. With NBA often taking place at night it's great to get that insomnia bet in and wake up to a nice winner in the morning.
Different NBA (Basketball) betting markets
As we have said before our betting tips and predictions for NBA often come from lots of different markets and these are often confusing, American sports list some of the markets slightly differently so it's always good to have a quick read before you have a bet. Some bookmakers may list the markets slightly differently as well so it is always worth reading the NBA or Basketball betting rules before betting on them.
- Money Line; this is betting on the to win or win line, NBA does not have draws so this is a 2-way market in which you bet on either team to win, should the game go to overtime the winner is then decided and paid out.
- Spread or Handicap; with this market, the team starts with a + or - and you bet on them to beat this line. This means should your team start with a + they either need to win the game or lose by no more than + amount. Same goes with the - spread the team needs to win by more than the - in order for your bet to win
- Over under total points market; with this you are betting on the total amount of points scored in the game, you can either bet on the points going over a certain line or staying under a certain line.
- Haf markets; you can bet on all the above markets but just in the first half of a match which is made up of 24 minutes
- Quarter markets; you can bet on all the above markets but in a quarter rather than the full game which is made up of 12 minutes
- Player props often are known as player performance; with these bets you are betting on players to achieve certain milestones, this is a very popular modern market is means often you are just betting on one player, bookmakers such as William Hill are very popular for this.
