Betting on the latest NBA odds throughout the regular season and playoffs is easy at the WynnBET online sportsbook.
From the first tip off in the fall through the last game of the Finals in the summer, NBA odds are put together by our expert trading team. If there’s an NBA game taking place, you can be safe in the knowledge that we’ll have the NBA odds available.
Our traders take into account a number of factors when building NBA markets. This includes injury news, form and past meetings. You can get an edge by using the detailed betting information in articles posted by our writers to the WynnBET Playbook.
Pre-game odds usually go up the day before a game or, at the very latest, on gameday. This is when you can get NBA odds on the spreads, totals, player props, team props and more. Place your pre-game bets and get ready for something even more exciting - live NBA betting.
Live NBA Betting
Placing bets on live NBA action is one of the most exciting ways to enjoy watching professional basketball. After the first tip off, you’ll notice the NBA betting lines start to move and this all depends on the performance of each team.
If a team builds up a big lead then their odds will shorten and the odds will lengthen for the opponent. Still think the trailing team will get the win? Back them at this point and you can often get a far better return than you would have done pre-game.
Live NBA betting is open on every matchup of both the regular season and playoffs. Check the live tab in your state’s app to see the games where live NBA betting is available.
NBA Betting Lines
Heard basketball fans talking about NBA betting lines? What they’re almost certainly referring to is the markets that are available to bet on for any given matchup. Like other North American leagues, the three markets that draw the most attention are the spread, moneyline and totals.
The spread assigns a plus or minus value to each team that depends on whether they are the favorite or underdog. For example, the spread for the favorite Boston Celtics against the underdog Atlanta Hawks could look like this:
In this matchup, the Celtics are five point favorites. If you back them to win, they need to win by six points for your bet to be a successful one. The Hawks, meanwhile, are five point underdogs. If you bet on them, it means they can lose by four points and your bet will still win. Anything more than that and your bet will not win.
The total refers to the combined total number of points scored by the teams and is expressed as an over/under total.
Moneyline is a straight up pick between the two teams where you back the team you think will win.
