NBA Basketball Prop Bets

NBA Basketball Prop Bets

NBA props are a great way to have some fun and place some bets not having to do with the point spread or the total.

Propositions include offerings such as player to score more than another designated player and can range from most rebounds, most assists, etc.

In big games you may see such props as team to score first, team with the most dunks, etc.

We have two thoughts about NBA props:

1. The bookie puts out many sucker bets which look too easy to be true. Either pass on these or flip flop to the other side and take the option that looks like it doesn't have a chance. This isn't rock solid betting advice but there is a general rule in sports betting that goes something like "if it looks too good to be true it probably is!" and let us tell you, we got suckered in for years before we got a sniff of breaking even or winning.

One of our most memorable sucker bets that we got entangled with was a game in which the bookies had Charles Barkely vs. Howard Eisley for points scored. How could Barkley possibly score less than Eisley? We still can't figure that one out but we lost our asses that day. It looked too good to be true and it was!

2. Their beatable. Bookies have very low limits on NBA props. This is because a very astute handicapper can pick them apart and consistently beat them. So with that in mind, fantasy basketball players should have a nice advantage here as many are very familiar with hoops stats, as most NBA props revolve around statistics.

How to Bet

Point Spread - The most basic of basketball wagers.

Moneyline - For those that simply want to bet on a team to win straight up.

Totals - Also known as an over/under. This bet has nothing to do with who which team wins or by how many. You're simply predicting if both teams points scored will exceed or fall short of the posted total.

Parlays - Multi-team wager where all must win in order to get paid. Big risk and big reward.

Teasers - Multi-team bet where you get to move the line a certain amount of points on each game. All teams must cover the teased point spreads to cash.

Pleasers - The opposite of a teaser. You're "giving" points away, making this bet a much tougher proposition to win.

Prop Bets - Wagers not having to do with which team wins the game or by how many. These usually pertain to wagers on individual players points scored, rebounds, assists, steals, etc.

NBA Futures - Bet on your favorite team to win their division, conference or the NBA Finals. A great bet for those looking to risk very little for a potentially large payoff.
