Regular season betting for NBA moneyline wagers can be tricky as teams sometimes rest star players or are in the process of an arduous back-to-back road trip, whilst playoff basketball is more competitive and do-or-die - especially for elimination games.

These include over/under total points , points handicap , winning margin, whether or not there will be overtime, live betting for points and scoring for quarters/halves, and many other ways to bet on NBA action. Some NBA and betting fans may want to opt into a parlay betting strategy to increase potential winnings!

Another popular betting option for a superstar driven league like the NBA is the variety of player props available. As the sport of basketball is 5 on 5 head-to-head team competition, a single player can make all the difference in the outcome of a game. There is a wide variety of player props that an NBA gambler can bet on during an NBA game such as over/under total points, assists, rebounds, 3pts made, and more.

As a competitive league, one of the most popular ways to bet is on the NBA futures and season outrights . This is where a good NBA gambler becomes great in picking the outcome of the NBA Regular Season standings, playoffs, and championship outcomes as well as a series of player props for the lead leader in points, assists, rebounds, and NBA MVP.
