Where To Bet NBA Online

Graeme

On this page I’m going to talk about Where to bet the NBA Online as well as give links to specific NBA bets you can make.

Now you might think “Well I can bet the NBA anywhere” and yes you can however there are reasons as to why you should bet at specific online sportsbooks.

For example some sportsbooks offer better odds than others at times so it’s good to have account there. I mean you might not think it’s a big deal, but getting the Raptors +7.5 at one place when they’re +7 elsewhere can be huge – as it can result in a win as opposed to a push.

Some sportsbooks also offer a wide variety of betting options in the NBA and it’s good to have that. NBA can be tough to bet on when it comes to the basics so it’s nice to have a good variety of bets to make.

So let’s break down by country the best places to bet on the NBA:

America: The best online sportsbook for Americans to bet on the NBA is 5Dimes Sportsbook.

First of all just in terms of basic betting – they have a “reduced juice” section. That bet that is -110 at all the other sportsbooks? It might just be -103 at 5Dimes Sportsbook. They also offer the widest variety of betting for NBA that you can imagine. Wnat to bet Nowitzki over/under points and rebounds? Or hell Nowitzki poinds AND rebounds combined? You can do that there. Want to bet on the Mavericks/Nuggets 1st half result, or the Suns point spread after 6 minutes? Or what about what team scores last?

Want to bet futures like Rookie of the Year or the NBA Championship winners? Everything and more is available at 5Dimes Sportsbook, easily the best place to bet NBA Online.

United Kingdom: I pesonally feel Bet365 Sportsbook are the book to go with as their variety of bets plus in-play is excellent.

Everywhere Else: Honestly I’d recommend 5Dimes Sportsbook to all of you too. I mean it’s an American sport so you’re going to find the best NBA betting options at an American sportsbook right? They accept people from everywhere so in this instance I’d go with them. Failing that I’d recommend 888 simply due to having player props – a lot of other sportsbooks such as Bet365 don’t – however 5Dimes Sportsbook is the best overall sportsbook to bet the NBA.

Where To Make Specific NBA Bets:

NBA Games: A nice and general article covering where to bet NBA games. Reasons for these sportsbook include odds, bets available, bonus etc.

NBA Money Line: The simplest of NBA bets – betting on who will actually win a game.

NBA Point Spreads: It’s the most basic form of betting on the NBA which is betting the NBA Point Spreads. In this article I tell you the best places to bet point spreads and why.

NBA Over/Unders:: Looking to bet NBA Game Totals? In this article I tell you the best places to bet NBA Game Totals.

NBA First Quarters:: in this article I look at betting NBA games right from the early stages – first quarters. I look at first quarter lines and what you should look for when betting NBA first quarters.

NBA Second Quarters: One thing you can do in NBA is live betting – so you can watch the first quarter and then during the break make bets on the 2nd quarter. In this article I discuss that bet and the strategy behind it and how to bet NBA 2nd quarters.

NBA First Half: In this article I talk about betting on NBA first halves as sportsbooks will offer point spreads etc just for the first half. This can be very profitable backing on those fast starters etc.

NBA Second Half: How about the second half? You can live bet during NBA games at certain sportsbooks and make bets on the second half. This can be very profitable knowing who bounces back, who sits back etc and I go into detail on that topic.

NBA Futures: I have a few specific articles on NBA futures listed below however if you’re a fan of NBA futures in general, this article covers that for you. It’ll list where to bet NBA futures and also go into the strategy of betting NBA futures and the value behind it.

NBA Player Props: One of my personal favourite bets to make in the NBA is player props. It’s fun to research and it’s fun to watch it play out. This will cover NBA player props, explain what is available, and where to bet them.

NBA Player Points: Details about betting on NBA player points specifically, how it works and where to bet them as well as strategy for betting player points.

NBA Playoffs Betting:

NBA Playoffs Series Winner: The most common bet in NBA playoff betting – you predict which team will win the series. Doesn’t matter how many games it takes or how they do it – as long as they win and progress.

NBA Playoffs Series Game Spread: Despite the playoffs being the best of the best, the NBA still has a lot of lopsided matchups. If you bet the Warriors to win their series for example it may be a $1500 bet to get $100 back. Quite the risk. Much like the point spreads in games, you can bet game spreads over the series for example Warriors -2.5 etc for much better odds and more value. In this article I go into all the detail about that.

NBA Playoffs Total Games Played: This bet allows you to predict how long a series will go. Think it’s going to be a 7 game series but not sure who will win that crucial Game 7? This article goes into detail about that bet.

NBA Playoffs Correct Series Score: Want to bet on a team to sweep? Or for a Gentlemans sweep? Or think home court will rule all and a team will win 4-3? In this article I go into detail about betting the correct series score.

NBA Playoffs Where Will Series Be Decided: Home vs road advantage can be a big factor in the NBA depending on the team. One bet the sportsbooks offer is the ability to predict WHERE a series will end. Can be a good bet to make if you feel a team is much better on their home court and I provide details and analysis of this bet in this article.

NBA Futures Betting:

NBA All Star Weekend: An overview of NBA All Star Weekend, and the best places to bet it in general. I also have specific articles on the NBA All Star Game, the NBA Slam Dunk Contest and the NBA 3 Point Contest and where to bet that.

How to Bet NBA Online:

5Dimes Sportsbook: You need to be logged in to 5Dimes first of all to be able to see all of the betting options and lines available.

Upon login you’ll be at the “Bet The Board” section and Basketball is listed. Now you don’t just select “NBA” – you want to select “NBA” AND “NBA Props” AND “Reduced”.

The reduced section is important as there will be reduced juice on a lot of the games meaning the best odds available – that’s why you want that section so that you can see if the bet you want to make is within there.

Also all NBA futures are listed under the “Futures” section under “Basketball”.

What NBA Bets/Props Are There?

Betting on NBA is betting on the outcome of games, or of events within that game.

However the most popular form of NBA betting is NOT betting who will win a game – it’s who will cover the point spread followed by over/unders, also known as game totals.

Very rarely are two teams evenly matched in the NBA so Vegas comes up with a point spread – essentially a handicap. For example Raptors at home versus the Hawks may be expected to win by 6-10 points so you’ll see a point spread stating Raptors -7. If you bet the Raptors -7 you’re betting that if you take 7 points away from their final score, they’ll still win the game.

You CAN bet on the money lines in NBA which is betting who will win but if you are betting favourites, the odds are never that great and the return of money is not good compared to what you are risking.

There is many more bets to the NBA than just that however for example bets on particular quarters or halves. You can also bet NBA futures such as who will win Regular Season MVP or the NBA Championship.

And there is also player props where you can bet various props on a player ie: amount of total points they will get in a game.

Common NBA Betting Questions:

What does ATS mean?:

Against The Spread. How a team does against the point spread.

For example, a team may have won their last 5 games but only be listed as “2-3 ATS”. What that means is that while they have won all 5 games, they have only covered the point spread in 2 of those 5 games. Not that NBA teams actually focus on the point spread or anything – but it can be good to see who is covering more than usual etc and assist you in making betting decisions.

Where To Watch NBA Online:

The best option is the NBA League Pass. While it costs money it’s a great service and very easy to use and is high quality.

NBA Betting Strategy:

Be careful of those double point spreads. That’s where the game is expected to have a dominant result and you need the team to win by like 13 points. Those are real crap shoots in the NBA.

If betting the “over” look for games where you think it will be a very close game. This means both teams will be pushing hard to get the win and doing their best to score while there’s also the chance of overtime. While it’s luck you’re relying on there, there’s no better feeling than needing 3-4 more points in a game and having it go to overtime.
