Which Basketball leagues and events do you cover picks for?
The number one league in the world is, of course, the NBA and you can expect NBA picks throughout the season. But we don't stop there, you can also get picks from the NBA G League, a league that is the official minor league to the NBA. In fact pretty much any leagues you would see covered at the betting sites.
Also in the US, we cover the NCAA (College Basketball) league and in Europe, we cover the EuroLeague which is the best of the best European clubs. For each event, the basketball betting picks will cover the three major markets which are similar across all American sports.
- Money Line
- Game Totals
For all three markets, overtime is often included but please check your bookmaker's rules. Money Line is a straight shootout, either a home or away win.
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 picks 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 least 217 points for the over to win.
