Bet NBA Online - NBA betting odds

NBA basketball and College basketball are both bet primarily using point spread and totals with a built in vig of 10% - easy for bettors and easy for bookmakers. Baseball, hockey and other sports rely on moneylines, runlines, pucklines, etc. which confuse many bettors (especially novices) and this confusion reduces the total handle on these sports.

College programs for basketball and football are highly competitive, widely televised and popular for wagering For these reasons they allow us to watch future professional superstars develop.

College basketball has college programs that provide almost all the players for the professional leagues, while college baseball and college hockey programs only get the players that aren´t drafted directly out of high school.

Players like Michael Jordan and Peyton Manning had outstanding college careers before their success in the pros. Betting on college games accounts for roughly half of the total wagering on basketball and a little less than that for football.

NBA Basketball Betting and NCAA College Betting.

When you bet a straight play, you have to risk your money in an 11/10 ratio (that extra 10% is called the vigorish, or the "vig" or "juice" in slang). You risk $11 to win $10 or $110 to win $100 or $55 to win 50, etc Ideally from the sports book perspective half the people betting will take one team in a game, half will take the other then the sports book will make its profit from the losing side. Imagine that people betting as a group risked $55,000 to win $50,000 on Team A, and $55,000 to win $50,000 on Team B. It doesn't matter who wins the sports book will pocket $5,000 in profit and use the other $50,000 from the losers to pay off the winners. All of this is important to you, because it means that for smart players, sports betting is the best money making proposition in all of betting.

Basketball Teasers

The teaser is 1 bet consisting of 2 or more propositions bets in which you are allowed to adjust the point spread in your favor. If there is ANY loss in a teaser, the entire teaser results in a loss!! Otherwise, if the teaser contains a push, no action, or tie, the teaser will revert to the next amount of teams, paying the odds of the new teaser. In the case of a two-team teaser, if there is a push, no action,  or tie, the bets will be refunded.

Basketball Moneylines - NBA moneyline betting

The –165 means you must risk $165 to win $100 on the Pistons while the +145 means you get back $145 for each $100 risked should the Pistons win outright. Any –number means that is the risk to win $100 and any +number is the payoff for risking $100. It is that simple. In the event of a tie, all moneyline bets are settled as a Push and monies are refunded. The difference between the two lines typically starts at 20 “cents” in basketball and gets larger as the numbers get higher. For example, if the favorite is –240, the dog may be +200, a difference of 40 “cents”. The higher difference at higher numbers simply serves to keep the percentage of vig for the house roughly the same.

Not every moneyline will present an opportunity, but be sure to compare the moneylines and corresponding spread. Online sports betting is a game of supply and demand. Going against the public trends will lead to you getting better “prices” on all your plays and you will be more profitable in the long run.
