NBA Basketball Betting Guide
The NBA is a professional basketball league in the USA and is growing in popularity in the UK with ever increasing exposure on Sky Sports and ESPN.
The NBA season runs from November through to June. Consisting of 30 teams. The NBA is divided in to two conferences, the Eastern and Western Conference, each of which consists of three divisions. Each division is made up of five teams, who play 82 games each in the regular season to determine the winner of each division. The other four teams with the best record for the season make up the teams who progress to the end of season play-offs, whereby the winner of each Conference meets in the NBA Championship.
Some of the biggest names in the NBA include the LA Lakers, Cleveland Cavaliers, Boston Celtics, San Antonio Spurs and Orlando Magic, all of which prove popular in the antepost betting for which team will be crowned NBA Champions at the end of the season.
NBA betting on a game by game basis, like other American sports largely concentrates on handicaps and point spreads. Every Basketball game is end to end and scoring is regular, making it an exciting spectacle to watch. Many of the game can be high scoring and go to the wire, hence, plenty of excitement. However, like most sports betting unless you fully understand the sport, its teams and the rules, caution should be exercised.
