Betting on the NBA can be fun but if you are new it can be a bit difficult to understand. If you are going to start betting for the first time for the NBA playoffs and need some help don't worry BetQL is here to explain it all for you. NBA betting lines are made up of three main components the point spread, the NBA odds, and the line. Below we will go into more details about all different types of NBA betting lines:
NBA odds are no different than any other statistical odds, it merely shows how likely the outcome you are betting. There can be different formats of NBA odds for example American odds, Fractional odds, or Decimal odds although these are different formats of NBA odds they all say the same thing.
At the end of the day the NBA odds show how much money you will win if your bet wins. Teams or bets that are more likely to happen will have lower odds, while teams or bets that are not as likely to happen will have higher odds. If you are new to betting the NBA all you have to do is look at the number next to the team you want to bet.
If your team has a positive number such as (+110) that means if you bet $100 and your team wins you will win $110. If the NBA odds show a negative number next to your team like (-200) that means you would need to bet $200 to win $100.
Luckily BetQL is here to help you understand NBA odds and value, because we analyze every game and every bet type to show you which side you should take to maximize your profit. With BetQL you can always ensure that we are balancing the value of the odds to our star ratings. We will rarely give a team that has (-500) odds five stars because there is not much value wagering $500 to only win $100.
Not only is the strategy of betting the odds on favorite every game a very stressful strategy, but you also need to have a large bankroll to even try that. With BetQL our NBA best bets for today look to promote winners while also balancing value, so our tool is not only helpful to advanced bettors but also novice bettors who are looking to get their feet wet with betting and are still trying their best to understand the difference between NBA odds, lines, and spreads.
Betting NBA spreads or ATS (against the spread) for short is the most popular way to bet on NBA games and is also very simple to understand. An NBA spread also known as a point spread is how many points a team can either win or lose by to win a bet.
For example, if the NBA spread is (-2) your team will need to win by at least three points to win the bet. If the team you bet on has a point spread of +4.5 it means the team can lose by four points and you can still cover. The reason NBA spreads exist is to create value on each side so bettors will be enticed to bet on both teams.
When the best team in the league is playing the worst team in the league everyone knows the best team will win, but the real question is by how much. NBA point spreads attempt to bridge that gap and give points to the lesser team, or takes points away from the better team depending on which side you bet.
Betting with point spreads not only makes the game more fair for bettors but it racks up the difficulty. Everyone can pick out a winner but can you pick out a winner when the NBA point spreads are involved. When you start betting the NBA against the spread you start to look at the game with new eyes. No longer do you start to track the teams that win, but you start keeping a closer eye on the teams that can cover the point spread.
Whether you are betting the NBA against the spread or you are checking in on the latest NBA spreads, BetQL has you covered. With BetQL you always know you are looking at the most updated NBA odds, lines, and spreads because if the spread changes at the sportsbook, it will update immediately on BetQL.
Our NBA best bet model works once the odds, lines, and spreads have been released. The second the odds, line, and spreads are created at the sportsbook our best bet model goes to work. The NBA best bet model runs 10,000 simulations of every game to create a score projection which then allows us to tell you who will win the game, cover the spread, and if the game will go over or under the total spread. NBA spreads are bound to change throughout the day, so when the point spreads change, our pick may change as well.
NBA ATS Example:
The San Antonio Spurs are favored to win against the Sacramento Kings and the NBA point spread is set at +/- 5.5 this means that the Spurs are -6 and the Kings are +6. If you placed a bet on the Spurs against the spread it means that the Spurs have to win the game by 6 points or more to win your bet. At the end of the game take the Spurs' final score and subtract 5.5, if the Spurs still win that means you have covered your bet and can cash your ticket. If you bet the Kings that means the Kings can lose the game by 5 points or less because remember this spread was set at +5.5 for the Kings. At the end of the game you can add 5.5 points to the Kings final score and if they have more points than the Spurs that means your bet won!
