Pointspread is the Asian Handicap of the basketball world, you are given a handicap each time (ie -3 and +3) meaning the team has to outscore the handicap. If a team is given a handicap of -3 then they have to win by at least 4 points to win the handicap, should they win by 3 then the bet would be pushed (stake refunded).
The Game Totals is as it says on the tin! The basketball betting tips will go with either an under or an over of a set line. That line indicates the total number of points scored in the game (both home and away). So a line of 216.50 would require at last 217 points for the over to win.
