How To Bet On Basketball

Basketball — Parlays and Teasers

Two types of bets that are very popular in basketball at America’s Bookie are teasers and parlays. They involve wagering on more than one thing at the same time. When making a PARLAY bet, the customer is betting on more than one event within the context of a single wager, and all the events must win for the player to cash a ticket. These are the standard payouts for basketball parlays: 2 teams +260 (13/5) 3 teams +600 (6/1) 4 teams +1000 (10/1) 5 teams +2000 (20/1) 6 teams +4000 (40/1) 7 teams +7500 (75/1) 8 teams +10000 (100/1) Again,…

Basketball — Betting on Totals

In addition to being able to wager on which team will win a basketball game, or by how much, the sportsbook customer at America’s Bookie can also place a wager on how many total points are scored in a game. This is known as the “total,” or the “over/under,” and it is indeed a very popular part of basketball betting, probably more so in the NBA than it is in college basketball. Totals in the college game have become much more widespread since the emergence of online sportsbooks, as an increasing number of games across the country have those numbers….

Basketball — Why the Line Moves

As you progress in making basketball wagers at America’s Bookie, you are going to find that the pointspreads in basketball are going to move quite a bit more freely than they do in a sport like football. This can occur for any number of different reasons. Of course, one of the most obvious is that of injuries. Oddsmakers must react to injuries and do it quickly. When a player is out of action in basketball, it is 20% of a lineup, and the effect could be quite a bit more than that, depending on how important the player is. For…

Betting Basketball — How the Line is Laid Out

And fundamentally, the idea and procedure of betting on either of them is the same. So what does a basketball line look like? Well, it’s actually kind of simple. Let’s start with the basics. Team A +3-1/2 Team B -3-1/2 In this model the team that is listed on top is the road team, while the bottom team is the home team. The 4-1/2 points that is listed is known as the “pointspread,” and this means that the “favorite,”…
