- Each NBA season brings with it teams that are overvalued and others that are undervalued. Study recent team performances and the early games as the season progresses. Overvalued teams are easy to spot. But it takes a bit of a closer study to really predict teams that are not valued enough in the current season. This will give you an idea of how the season may progress and make it a bit easy on you to bet on basketball games. But refrain from betting on trends alone. Look for each day’s performance also to decide if you must place a bet and if yes, then in what manner. Knowledge of trends is good as it gives you a distinct advantage over those without information on team results in recent seasons.
- Home games offer some betting advantages. Even the team performing the poorest in the season at times ends up winning in front of a home crowd. Again, keeping abreast of trends will give you such winning and losing figures, which you can put to good use when placing your NBA bets.
- NBA is known for its ruthless schedule. Teams often play games every day. Watch out for a team playing their 4th game in 5 straight days against a team, which is playing their 2nd game after a rest of two days. This is an easy win betting strategy.
- It is best to keep emotions in check when wagering on games. Often bettors end up making the less desirable betting decisions when it comes to their favorite teams. Best to keep favorites to the sides when deciding on your NBA wagering plan for the season. It is a long season and emotions are best locked away when placing bets.
- Don’t bet on every game. Always place bets on basketball games when you see any real value to your bets. Look for weak lines as these are safer money bets. Avoid betting on games too early on. Survey their lineup and see if the team is worth a wager. Moneylines are a good option when considering short underdogs.
