Against The Spread Betting in the NBA

Against the Spread betting or also known as the abbreviation ATS is the NBA equivalent to the Run Line in the MLB or the Puck Line in the NHL where it involves a handicapped line.

Rules can differ from sportsbook to sportsbook especially when it comes to games being played internationally so please make sure you check your sportsbook to see whether or not overtime points are included.

The favorite in the game will be given a deficit to makeup whilst the underdogs will be given a lead to defend and depending on the line there could be 2 or 3 possible outcomes.

For example, let's say the one line is Boston Celtics -5.50, if wagering on that line then the Celtics would have to win by at least 6 points for the wager to be successful.

The other side of that line could be, for example, Milwaukee Bucks +5.50 because they are the underdogs they are given a headstart so as long as they don't lose by 6+ points then that bet would be successful.

The other option which may come up from time to time is when a line is a whole number, for example, Boston Celtics -5 & Milwaukee Bucks +5 which would mean if the Celtics won by 5 then neither would be successful and the bet would be a Push.

This market is most used when you think the money line odds are a bit on the short side and you think the team can cover the handicap because you will get better odds for this market than the money line because of the greater risk.
