Straight To The Bank – NBA Punting Tips

The NBA season is long, part of the joy is the grind. With the grind comes considerations like effort, stats and priorities. When betting on day-to-day sports like the NBA  so many things need to be taken into consideration.

Data to be considered for making the best bet:

  • Relevant data – point differential and turnovers are one of the best key indicators of how good a particular team is. 
  • Schedule – take advantage of back to backs, breaks in schedule, road trips. I cant stress how easy it is to pick off teams on the 2nd or 3rd nights of back-to-back games. Combine this with a road-trip – like Detroit’s 6 game road-trip West to start the season – and it becomes a bit easier to pick winners.
  • Dont chase value – take your winnings where you can. On a night when San Antonio and the Heat are certainties then multi these 2 and be happy with the win. Just like an NBA team its a long season. Adding a team to a multi that you just aren’t sure about 
  • Have a list of teams you trust (good understanding and feel of) as well as teams which you know to stay away from – makes picking games much easier. 

Key numbers in NBA Betting:

 – Numbers #5 – #8 – 25% of NBA games finish with a winning margin between 5 & 8.
