NBA Picks Against the Spread

NBA Over/Under Bets

Examples of NBA Over/Under Betting

Here’s a simple example of Over/Under bets in the NBA:

  • Timberwolves vs. Knicks (O/U 213.5, -110). This means if you bet on the over or under and are correct, you’ll win $100 on a $115 bet. The O/U is the combined points for both teams in the NBA game.

To learn more about how these sports bets work check out our full over/under betting guide.

NBA picks by Basketball Experts

We’ve seen a lot of NBA basketball, and we spend time sifting through the data and betting trends to inform ourselves on our Free NBA Picks of the Day and Week.

What NBA games can I bet on?

In each full NBA season there are 1,230 games (82 games per team). That’s an average of about three games per week per team, and on most days of the week there’s at least one game on the NBA schedule, where some of the best athletes compete above the rim.

Sportsbooks offer betting on basketball in the NBA in many ways:

Here’s a quick rundown on what each of these types of bets are.

Team Futures NBA

For example, you can bet on whether a team will win more or less than X number of games in the season. Or bet on who will win the NBA FInals before the season starts or weeks or months before the playoffs.

Player Futures Bets

Get odds on which player may win the NBA Most Valuable Player Award, Rookie of the Year, and so on. Or pick the NBA player who will win the scoring title for that season. Some sportsbooks will even let you bet on over/under for triple-doubles for an NBA player. A triple-double is when a player gets double digits in points, assists, and rebounds in the same game.

Spread or Moneyline NBA Bets

The simplest form of game action betting: pick a team to win, either by giving or taking points, or via the moneyline. A favorite is indicated by giving points (-5 for example) and as a Minus sign in the Moneyline (for example: the Lakers are -135 against the Knicks, meaning you win $100 for every $135 you bet on the Lakers to win).


With all the scoring in the NBA, over/under betting can be a fun way to enjoy the action. With this type of bet (also called “Totals” bets), you bet on whether the two teams will go over or under a specified point total. Typically the odds are short, as in -110 or -108 per game.

How to Parlay Bet the NBA

Parlay bets can be thrilling because they offer a big payoff and require a series of events to happen to win your NBA bet. For example:

  • NBA team #1 wins by X points AND
  • NBA #2 scores 120 points AND
  • NBA player X has 15 assists AND
  • NBA player Y grabs 12 rebounds AND
  • NBA player Z gets a triple double

In the above example, if you get all legs of the parlay correct, SWOOSH you win big. Not all sportsbooks and jurisdictions allow parlay bets, so check offerings in your area.

Live NBA Betting

With Live Betting, you can bet on almost any type of event in an NBA game while it’s being played. Choose which team will get the next three-point field goal, for example. Live betting is a fun way to enhance your viewing of a basketball game. Check your area and favorite sportsbook to make sure live betting on the NBA is permitted where you are.
