Basic NBA Betting Strategy

Strategies for betting basketball when it comes to the NBA are numerous, but not always successful.  As we look to find the best NBA betting strategy we need to start by deciding whether or not we want to focus on sides or totals.  Some basketball bettors focus on sides, while others focus on totals.  It is rare to see a good handicapper concentrate on both.  In this instance let's look at a strategy for betting NBA sides.

Betting basketball by focusing on the NBA is a different than football betting because the teams play so many more games and play more than one time in a week.  Factors that can be critical are travel, fatigue, and schedule.
Some teams will play three games in four nights and that is something we need to be aware of.  Some NBA handicappers do nothing other than focus on travel and base their plays against tired teams.  Betting basketball in the NBA is a daily event and that is something we always want to remember.  The NBA season is long for both players and for bettors.

There are many NBA betting strategies that people have tried, but none have really been that successful. The one that has had some success is the one we mentioned earlier, and that involves the schedule.  Let's examine that one more closely.  We want to look for teams in bad travel situations facing teams in a good situation.  We want to play the rested team, particularly at home, that is facing a team coming off a game the previous night, or is on the back end of a long road trip.  You can also play against teams in back to back situations, but this is not quite as simple because some teams are young enough to handle it.  Every team though, is going to have trouble at the end of road trips or facing a 3rd game in four nights.  It is grueling.  You can make an addition to this betting basketball strategy and look at teams coming off a game the previous night and now traveling to play either Utah or Denver at a higher altitude.  The road team not only has to deal with the fatigue factor, they also have to deal with the thin air.  When the Jazz were at their best many years ago, taking them at home against a road weary team was money in the bank.  That is still a pretty good play now, even though Utah is not the power they once were.  Looking at adding Denver to this list is not a bad idea, as the Nuggets have improved in recent years and become tougher at home.

In this discussion about bet on NBA let's remember just one strategy for betting the NBA and focus on schedule and travel.  Keeping it simple and focusing on only one strategy is an excellent way to make money and to keep us from looking at too many things.
