Moneyline Betting Odds

NBA moneyline betting is the simplest market to bet on and just involves backing the team in which you think will win.

This is a market we’ll always offer our punters and is perfect for combining with a range of other markets. It’s a market that is found across sport, including in our MLS picks, NHL picks and NFL picks particularly.

Total Points

A market ideal for adding to the moneyline market, total points is a bet that revolves around backing the number of points you think will be scored.

This will generally come in an Over/Under format and is based on the combined number of points of both teams.

Player Points

Betting on the points a player will score is also popular and works, in the same way, to total points in the sense the odds generally come in Over/Under format.

You’ll be able to bet on the number of points any player will score and will often look a little like this…

Kyrie Irving:

  • Over (+23.5) : -100 (or EVS as fractional)
  • Under (+23.5): -162.5 (or 8/11 as fractional)

As well as that there are also a number of other player points markets available, these include:

  • First basket scorer
  • First team basket scorer
  • Player Rebounds
  • Player Assists
  • Points and Assists
  • First Quarter Points

Other Markets & Combinations

On top of that, we’ll also provide you with plenty more NBA betting advice, offering tips on how to bet on NBA games including a range of combination bets for you to enjoy.

We’ll also bring you a further range of markets that includes Quarter and Half betting as well as any specials a bookmaker may be offering.
