How To Bet on Basketball Odds
Regardless if you’re a new bettor checking out mobile sports betting from the BetMGM Sportsbook app or a longtime fan browsing online sports betting opportunities from your computer, there are a variety of ways to bet on basketball, including live betting and parlays.
Live sports betting: With live sports betting, you can place live bets on basketball odds.
From the opening tip through the final buzzer of a Phoenix Suns vs. Cleveland Cavaliers game, and thousands of other games throughout the year, live basketball betting is available.
Moneyline: On the moneyline, you bet on a certain team to win the game.
If, for example, Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers are -150 moneyline favorites to beat the Milwaukee Bucks, you could profit $33.33 on a $50 bet with a Sixers’ win.
Spread: With a spread bet, you bet on one team winning (or losing) by a certain margin.
If, for example, Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors are 3.5-point favorites over Jamal Murray and the Nuggets, the Warriors must win by at least four points to cover the spread and cash spread bets. The Nuggets must lose by fewer than three points (or win) to cover their spread.
Over/under (totals): With an over/under total, you bet on the total points scored by both teams.
If, for example, the total for a New York Knicks vs. Memphis Grizzlies game is 225.5, you can bet they’ll combine for fewer (i.e., under) or more (i.e., over) points than 225.5.
Over/under total odds are also available for quarters and halves in the NBA, college basketball, WNBA, and other events.
Halftime Lines: At the halftime horn, check out the sportsbook for halftime odds. You can bet on a second-half spread, player prop, or over/under totals.
Futures and outrights: Another popular market where you bet on the championship winner, conference winners, division winners, MVPs, and more.
Parlays are a unique way to add more excitement to each three-pointer, fast break, and final-minute heroics.
By combining multiple bets into one wager, your potential payout increases, as does the entertainment throughout one night, entire day, or weekend of basketball betting.
Here’s an example:
- Kansas moneyline: -200 (vs. Iowa State)
- Knicks moneyline: -140 (vs. Detroit Pistons)
- 76ers moneyline: -225 (vs. San Antonio Spurs)
With a $10 stake, the potential payout is $27.14 if all three teams win.
You can also take advantage of sportsbook promos for parlays, including Same Game Parlay Insurance and a Parlay Boost Token. Check your account daily for updated promos!
