NBA Prop Bets

What Is An NBA Prop Bet?

We all have our favorite teams and players in the NBA, and we all want to see them succeed. What if I told you, that you could actually bet on how a specific team or player will do in a particular NBA game? Yup, that’s NBA Prop Betting in a nutshell. You are basically wagering on a bet that’s not necessarily directly tied to the outcome of the game. Let me explain:

For example – you have the LA Lakers playing the Toronto Raptors. There are multiple ways on how to approach that game on the prop markets. FanDuel offers markets such as “Away Team Total Points” where you can bet on the Lakers to score Over or Under 110.5 total points in that game, regardless if they win or lose that has no impact on your bet.

NBA Player Prop Bets

An NBA player prop bet could be a bet on something specific that will happen during the game, such as which player will score the most points or how many rebounds a certain player will have. Prop bets are often more specific and can be more exciting than traditional bets on the outcome of the game, as they allow bettors to wager on a wide range of possibilities.

Some popular types of NBA player props include bets on individual player statistics, bets on player matchups, such as which player will score more points head-to-head in a given game. In addition, there are often prop bets available on player awards and honors before the season begins, such as who will win the MVP award or which player will be named to the All-Star team.

Popular Types of NBA Player Props

My favorite NBA Player Prop Bet is betting on how many points a particular player will score on a given night. In order to land these type of bets a thorough analysis is obviously required, but luck also plays a significant part as a single bounce of the basketball can determine whether or not your bet has won.

Then there are also rebounding prop bets, these are always fun to do, particularly when your favorite player is going up against someone they’ve done well in the past. Pace of play also impacts rebounding, if you have a couple of top 10 ranked teams in terms of pace play each other, it is normal to expect more shots to go up which more often than not results in more rebounds to be had.

If you feel like a player has superior passing skills, as opposed to his shooting, then NBA Assists Prop betting is for you. These type of bets are usually reserved (but not exclusive) for the very best of point guards we have in the NBA. Betting on a player to get double-digit assists can be particularly rewarding, especially if he has been on a poor stretch of games coming into a particular game. Sometimes you can get odds up to +450 on a starting point-guard, for a bet that seemingly lands often in today’s fast paced NBA.

NBA Team Prop Bets

Similarly to Player Prop Bets, an NBA team prop bet is a type of wager on a specific event or action that will occur during an NBA game involving one or both teams. These bets can be based on a wide range of possible events or actions. You can choose between betting on a team's performance in a specific quarter or half of the game, or bets on a team's overall statistical performance.
Here are some examples:

  • Will a team score over or under a certain number of points in a game?
  • Will a team make more or fewer three-point shots than a given number?
  • Will a team have a better or worse field goal percentage than a certain percentage?
  • Will a team outscore its opponent in a certain quarter or half of the game?
  • Will a team win the game by more or less than a certain number of points?

These are just a few examples of the many different types of team prop bets oddsmakers offer on NBA games these days.
