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 – http://pocket-tots.co.uk/2016/03/16/basketball-live-betting-strategy/.
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.
