NBA Championship Betting
Take it to the rack with BetMGM’s enticing basketball betting options!
World sports are back. Basketball fans and online sports betting sites all over the world are waiting in anticipation to see what the conclusion of this 2020 season will bring.
Over the last six seasons, the Toronto Raptors and Cleveland Cavaliers are the only two teams to have broken up the Golden State Warriors’ championship domination. Things have changed up a bit. We are undoubtedly seeing a new force at hand with the Bucks and Lakers neck-and-neck with each other. We’re expecting them to fight it out to the final.
Teams to watch
When trying your hand at basketball betting, it’s always important to keep your eyes on other teams on the table, and the Clippers seem to be the next best thing. They are hot on the heels of the teams vying for the national basketball championship title.
Although this season looks like a two-horse race between the Lakers in the West and Bucks in the East, the play-in tournament could throw us an unpredictable end to the season. There is no home-court advantage for teams to use in their favor which definitely changes things up a bit.
Types of bets
The most common types of betting you’re going to have to choose from in basketball include:
Moneyline bets: Bet on the team you think is going to win the championship, a game, or a division.
Spread bets: Unevenly matched teams are evened out by sportsbook casinos and the stronger team gets a handicap of sorts. They will be given a number, known as a line or spread, and they have to win by more than this number for the bet to be successful. If the underdog wins or loses by less than the amount given, those bets will be successful.
Over/Under: Put money on whether you think the two teams will score more than or less than the total points the sportsbook has predicted.
Props bets: Special bets on certain outcomes within a game/season. For example, if you think you know which team will win the tip-off or you know which player is going to score the last 3-pointer, you can place bets on these outcomes.
Live betting: Take advantage of shifting lines and in-game insight by betting during the game.
Futures: Reckon you know who is going to take the championship? Will the Lakers and Bucks fight it out in the final, or will another team surprise us? Bet on something happening in the future.
