Basketball Odds

In our opinion, basketball betting odds is the most difficult because so many games are decided in the final two minutes. A team could be comfortably in the lead and covering the spread but then end up failing to cover because the opponent makes a few prayer 3-pointers in the waning seconds.

Yep, basketball betting can definitely get your blood pressure soaring. But before you swear off basketball betting, there is hope. There are a few things I've learned over the years about basketball betting and I've become pretty successful following these rules.

One advantage basketball betting odds has over football is that one big fluke play rarely changes the outcome of the entire game. You can handicap a game correctly in football only to see an interception or fumble destroy all your hard work.

From our experiences, the key to winning at basketball betting is all about money management. You see, we expect going into the basketball season that my winning percentage is going to be lower than in football and baseball. That tells us that in order for us to be as profitable, we need to be maximizing our wins and minimizing our losses when basketball betting. Here's how we do it.

The reasons we prefer to use this style of NBA gambling rather than the other two sports is the fact that (1) basketball betting games are played seven days a week and (2) offer a point spread rather than a money line as in baseball. Additionally, it is much easier to determine before the season starts in football how many total bets you will make during the year. In basketball betting, it is much more difficult to come up with such an estimate because games are played daily.

Basketball is a team sport in which two teams of five active players each try to score points against one another by propelling a ball through a 10 feet (3 m) high hoop (the goal) under organized rules. Basketball is one of the most popular and widely viewed sports in the world.

Points are scored by shooting the ball through the basket above; the team with more points at the end of the game wins. The ball can be advanced on the court by bouncing it (dribbling) or passing it between teammates. Disruptive physical contact (fouls) is not permitted and there are restrictions on how the ball can be handled (violations).

Through time, basketball has developed to involve common techniques of shooting, passing and dribbling, as well as players' positions, and offensive and defensive structures. Typically, the tallest members of a team will play center, the shortest member usually plays "point guard" while often the best ball handlers are guards. While competitive basketball is carefully regulated, numerous variations of basketball have developed for casual play. In some countries, basketball is also a popular spectator sport.

While competitive basketball is primarily an indoor sport, played on a basketball court, less regulated variations have become exceedingly popular as an outdoor sport among both inner city and rural groups.
