While you have to remain aware that there is always risk involved, and never bet more than you can afford to lose, if you follow National Basketball Association games closely, increasing your team, player, and coach knowledge, identifying advantages becomes easier to do.
Quarter Line Bets
The NBA offers two ways to get down on a side or a total before the second half even begins. There are First-Half wagers on almost all the major sports, but Basketball Quarter stakes allow you to make the most of your knowledge of a team by identifying its edge much earlier on.
Tips to keep in mind with these bets include whether or not a squad is coming off a long rest. While they may start out slowly, giving their opponents, or the Underdog, a potential edge, this situation may change suddenly.
Also consider taking this wager when one or more players newly added to the team get inserted into a starting lineup. The best time for this? When starting players get thrust into the lineup just after the trade deadline and so have not been able to form any kind of connection with their new teammates.
There are Team Totals on all games in the NBA just like there are for all other big sports. This is you staking on how many points the squad will score. You don’t need to worry about the opponents in this bet at all.
A good idea for these wagers is to review team statistics regarding how they have fared against the opposing squad in the past or against a team with a similar player lineup. So, if you are thinking about taking a Team Total stake against a squad with an incredible centre, look at how they have fared against teams with high-quality centres in the past.
Team to Get to 20 Points First
This bet is quite unique in that it is only really available for NBA games. It is as simple as it sounds too, and you just need to guess who will get to the 20-point mark first.
Review the strategy tip for Quarter Line wagers when you are considering this stake. It is also a good idea to look at each squad’s splits against that particular opponent.
NBA games offer the broadest menu of stake options in this category, including Assists, Players’ Points, Rebounds, Assists & Points & Rebounds, and more.
Whichever Prop you end up choosing, remember that you are only betting at Ladbrokes Australia on whether or not the player will tally Under or Over the wagering number giving on the final statistics sheet.
One of the first places you should go when you’re wagering Player Props is a review of each athlete’s statistics against the given opponent. Don’t just look at the away team’s players but find out about their splits on the road when they’ve faced the opponents before to see if they favour, or don’t, playing in that particular arena.
