Basketball live betting strategy

    As we all know, basketball is an extremely popular sport in the US, where is the strongest basketball league in the world – NBA. Every day, the bookmakers offer more than 100 basketball games, each of which could be played on several dozen ways. One of the biggest specifics of the basketball as a game, however, can be used successfully to build a winning betting strategy. It’s that the basketball is a game of series. If you look closely at the statistics of any league match in NBA you would see that there is a graph showing the curve of the lead during the match. You will also see that often the peaks of the curve are not at the end of the match (most are around the beginning of the third part) which could be used for a simple strategy for live betting on basketball matches.

    Another option for using this specific of the basketball game you could see in this article for basketball live betting –

    Said with few words, the strategy we are talking about aims to put a limit of points in which one of the two teams would lead during the match and if it happens the player must bet against this team on Asian handicap.

    Here’s an example: let’s say we have a match between Golden State and the Los Angeles Lakers and the limit are: 27 points for Golden State and 14 points for Lakers. If one of the two teams reach its limit, then the player must immediately do a reverse bet on the Asian Handicap.

    In this particular match, shortly before the end of the second part, Lakers led by 15 points margin. At this point, the proposal of the bookmaker for a victory for Golden State was +2 (before the game, the victory for Golden State was estimated at -12.5) and the odds was 1.9. At the end, Golden State beat the Lakers with 10 points difference and the bet was successful.

    It is important to say that keeping track of many games at the same time is quite hard. However, we could use computer programming to do the job for us. I particularly use a program I built that tracks permanently the basketball games I am interested in and if any of them become suitable for bet it sends me a signal. So my efforts related to searching matches are limited to only a few minutes per day.

    Betting bonuses on US sports

    American sports like basketball, ice hockey, baseball and American football are extremely loved by the fans of sports betting worldwide. This is understandable, as they offer many different opportunities for betting profit, with one of them is the great betting bonuses the bookmakers offer only for American sports.

    Bet365 for example, offers a special bonus for matches of the championships in the US and Canada. This special Parlay Bonus provides additional profits for all combinations. So if you bet on one of the NFL, NKAAF, CFL, NBA, NKAAB, MLB or NHL and make a successful bet, you will get more profit. The bonus depends on the size of your profit as follows:

    Type Bet Bonus
    Double – 5% bonus
    Triple – 7.5% bonus
    4x – 10% bonus
    5x – 15% bonus
    6x – 20% bonus
    7x – 25% bonus
    8x – 30% bonus
    9x – 35% bonus
    10x – 40% bonus
    11x – 45% bonus
    12x and more – 50% bonus

    The maximum amount of this bonus is 100 000 Euro, which is more than well.

    The use of bonuses in our strategies betting is mandatory if we want to win. It is not uncommon, some of the best players to create their overall strategies exclusively based on bonus opportunities offered by the bookmakers, thus increase their chances of success.

    Here is an example of creating a simple strategy that includes the use of the bonuses for increasing profits.

    Let’s say you manage to keep about 55% success rate when betting on the matches from the National Basketball Association. At odds of 1.9 for your bets after 100 bet you will have a profit of about 4.5 units from your original bank.

    However, if you decide to combine your bets not in singles, but in two games in a single bet, the success rate will drop to about 30 percent. This in itself will bring you a profit of just over 8 units, while adding 5% bonus for each winning bet will bring you more than 13 units of profit. Much better than only 4.5, right?

    If you can successfully apply the bonus offers, offered by the bookies, you would surely earn more. What could be better than that?

    Betting on NBA matches

    Betting on NBA matches gives to all those who love gambling and really want to make money from sports betting many interesting opportunities The reasons for this are these:

    • First of all, the season in NBA is very long. Each of the 30 teams plays 82 games in the regular season for a total of 1230 matches. Often, there are more than ten games a day and we are just talking about the regular season. After it come the playoffs, which give extra opportunities to bet on basketball matches.
    • The great number of matches played by every team in NBA gives us another advantage and that is the ability to easily monitor the series in the performance of the teams and to react promptly. For example, it is often to see a team to get in a series of eight or more consecutive matches played away from home. This helps us evaluate the current form of the team away from home in the first few meetings and make successful bets in the next few games.
    • Extremely rich and easily accessible statistics – NBA as one of the biggest sporting events in the world and this is why we have full access to great number of stats and other resources. There are hundreds of sites like, which offer full statistics on every aspect of the game and allow everyone who wants to study and analyze the upcoming matches. Anyone who is interested in sports betting know very well how important the statistics is and how it allows us to increase the success rate and ensure profit.
    • Better odds – As one of the most interesting sports leagues in the world, NBA is also loved by millions of sports betting fans. Of course this creates a competition between the bookmakers which leads to better odds for the players. The lower margin offered by the bookmakers means better profits for everyone who bet on basketball games. For example, Pinnacle often offers odds of 1.95 for both possible outcomes of the NBA matches while odds of 1.91 are quite regular in bet365.

    So these three advantages which could be used in NBA matches by all who love sports betting are something that really needs to be assessed. Many matches, easily accessible statistics and better odds. There is hardly anything else we might need when we want to make profit from sports betting.
