How to place a basketball bet

NBA Basketball Wagering - Point spread

Making a bet at a sportsbook is an easy process and ticket writers are more than willing to assist you. For the convenience of both the house and player, the best way to make a wager is to use the numbers assigned to each team by the official Nevada Sports Schedule. For the purposes of this discussion and for a point of reference, let's assume you wish to place a bet on the following game, appearing on the tote board as followed;

17 New York

18 LA Lakers -6

Here's How:

1. The team's assigned number is the number to the left of each team. In our above example, New York is #17 and the Lakers are #18.

2. This game will be referred to as game "17/18" with New York being team #17 and the Lakers being team #18.

3. The number to the right of the team is the odds/pointspread for that team, with the number always being listed beside the favorite. In our above example, the Lakers are a -6 point favorite over the New York Knicks.

4. The home team is always listed on the bottom unless a neutral site is noted. In our above example, the Lakers are the home team.

5. If a player decides to bet on Los Angeles they would go to the window and declare "I would like $11 to win $10 on team #18, Lakers less the six".

6. If a player decides to bet on New York they can go to the window and declare "I would like $11 to win $10 on team #17, Knicks plus six"..

7. If LA wins by 7 or more, all those who bet on the Lakers would win $10.00 for every $11.00 they bet, thus collecting $21.00 for every $11.00 wagered.

8. If LA wins by 5 or less, or if New York wins, all those who bet on New York would win $10.00 for every $11.00 they bet, thus collecting $21.00 for every $11.00 wagered.

9. If the game is settled with the Lakers winning by 6 points exactly, the game is a "push" and all bets are returned.
