Basketball Betting Made Simple
Basketball is a game of skill and relies on a great amount of strategy, which must be utilized in order to win. The challenge is to gather, and analyze, as much information as you can about a game. Weigh the probabilities of each team winning and, subsequently compare your opinion to the oddsmakers. Make the right judgment and you win. To keep sports wagering simple and fun, we are only going to cover single strategies.
When betting basketball, there are two ways to place a straight wager within that same game. You can either bet the line, also known as the side, or on how many points will be scored, also known as the total. The Straight wager is betting in its most basic form, which allows you to bet upon a winner, at given odds. The Point Spread can bet on one of two selections that have been equated through the allocation of suitable points. In order that the bettor wins, if choosing the favorite, the favored team must win by more than the Point Spread. On the flip side, if a bet has been placed on the underdog, that team has to lose by less than the spread for the bettor to win.
To make matters interesting, Half Points in the spread can cause a lot of Winners to turn into losers, especially with the clock running out and the losing team committing one foul after another in hopes the shooter will miss an easy basket. Many do. Other times, they rarely miss a shot from the free throw line. Teams that should have won by only 3 or 4 suddenly have 12 point victories at the game ending buzzer. The Half Point meant nothing, unless you took the winning team minus 12 and a half. LOSER!
Road teams on extended trips are especially vulnerable when favored, even if by a small amount. The Home Team usually finds a way to beat the spread and, if not in the playoff chase, can raise a few eyebrows. The truth is, the Road Favorite will usually rest its key players and give the bench a workout. That is why so many road favorites lose against the points.
The loser pays more to the sportsbook site, than he can hope to win. This is called the juice. When looking for a sport wagering site online, you should look for small juice outlay. A line movement in any direction indicates which team is getting more bets from the public. Sport betting sites will move the line in either direction, to try and entice a bettor to go the other way, in order to even out the amount wagered on both sides. This is how the sportbook makes its money... on the juice.
Do not let line movements influence your selections. However, you may not want to place sport wagers with a site that does not move its line. You will probably learn you are dealing with a management team that is also gambling. This can indicate poor money management by the sportbook. When it comes time to collect, no Winner wants excuses.
