HOW TO READ BASKETBALL ODDS?

Basketball betting odds are similar to practically every other sport. Here are some key things to know:

  • Moneylines: bets on the outcome of the game

  • Point spreads: bets on the margin of victory in a game

  • Over/unders: bets on the total points scored by the two teams combined

  • Player props: bets on specific events regarding individual players in a game

  • Parlays: multiple bets comprising one larger bet

BASKETBALL MONEYLINE

How does the moneyline work in basketball? A moneyline bet in a wager on the result of a game -- moneylines are adjusted for the given favorite/underdog. Here is a moneyline basketball example:

  • The Cleveland Cavaliers are favorites to beat the Indiana Pacers at home

  • The Cavaliers are -170 favorites and the Pacers are +160 underdogs

  • The Cavaliers win --- a $170 wager on the Cavaliers will return $100

BASKETBALL POINT SPREAD

A basketball spread is the betting handicap between two teams or the projected score difference. If an NBA team is roughly 5.5 points better than another, they would have a -5.5 NBA point spread against the other on a neutral court. The underdog would have a +5.5 spread.

Basketball picks against the spread are some of the most common basketball bets. Here is an NBA ATS betting (against the spread) betting example:

  • The Philadelphia 76ers are -6.5 point home favorites against the Phoenix Suns

  • The 76ers must win by 7 or more points to cover the spread. The Suns can lose by up to 6 points and still cover the spread

  • Winning/losing a game does not impact the outcome of a spread

CBB ATS spread bets are also highly popular.

BASKETBALL OVER/UNDER

Over/unders are one of the fastest-emerging basketball betting trends, with betters loving to ride the “over” and root for points. What is an over/under bet? They are bets on the combined scores of two teams -- the winner of the game has no bearing on the over/under bet. Here’s an example:

  • The Denver Nuggets are one of the highest-scoring teams in the NBA, especially at home. They are hosting the Washington Wizards one night

  • The over/under is set at o/u 226.5

  • The Nuggets win the game 120-105, good for a total of 225. In this instance, the under bet would hit

LIVE BASKETBALL BETTING

Basketball live betting is an exciting way to stay involved in the action even after a game has started. Lines are subject to change throughout a contest, depending on who is winning, potential injuries, and more. Here is a college basketball live betting example:

  • The Iowa women’s basketball team opens as -10 favorites against LSU

  • LSU storms to a 12-point lead by the end of the first quarter

  • The line moves to Iowa +2.5, meaning they are now underdogs to win the game

  • Iowa mount a rally but still lose by a single point

  • A live bet on Iowa after the first quarter (at +2.5) would hit, However, a -10 spread bet on them before the game would not

BASKETBALL PLAYER PROPS

Player props (similar to prop bets) are bets based on individual players meeting certain criteria. NBA player props may be based on a player’s total points, rebounds, assists, three-pointers made, and more. Here’s an example of an NBA prop bet:

  • Denver Nuggets PG Jamal Murray has an over/under of 2.5 made three-pointers

  • For the over player prop to hit, Murray must make three-pointers

  • Even if the Denver Nuggets lose the game, the Murray prop will hit as long he make three+ 3-pointers

BASKETBALL PARLAYS

Basketball parlays are multiple wagers in one larger bet. They can either occur across multiple games or in a single contest (called a same-game parlay). Here’s an example:

  • The Cleveland Cavaliers are -5.5 home favorites against the Indiana Pacers

  • The same day, the Philadelphia 76ers are -9.5 home favorites against the Washington Wizards

  • A bettor places a parlay on the Cavaliers spread and 76ers spread

  • For the parlay to hit, the Cavaliers must win by 6 and the 76ers by 10

BASKETBALL SAME-GAME PARLAY

Same-game parlays require multiple bets in the same game to all hit. Those bets can be the moneyline, certain player props, and more. For example, in a college basketball same-game parlay, a bettor can wager on player props for players on both teams -- the outcome of the game does not matter (unless a moneyline is included).

Here’s an example of an NBA same-game parlay:

  • The Cleveland Cavaliers are -5.5 home favorites against the Indiana Pacers

  • Cavaliers star G Donovan Mitchell has a points o/u of 29.5

  • Cavaliers C Jarrett Allen has a rebounds o/u of 11.5

  • A bettor places a SGP on the Cavs spread, Mitchell points over, and Allen rebounds over

  • For the bet to hit, the Cavs must win, Mitchell must score 30 or more points, and Allen must grab 12 or more rebounds
