Basketball is an exciting sport to bet on with four quarters of action, plus overtime, there are numerous ways to place bets on outcomes of basketball games, seasons, championships and more. At Stake's sportsbook, there are many opportunities to bet basketball and parlay in your bet slip such as:
Moneyline: The simplest form of bet - picking the outright winner of a head to head content between two basketball teams. Odds a weighted based on how likely one team would beat the other for a moneyline bet.
Handicap: A more sophisticated betting option in which different odds are based on a handicap of points (i.e. +3.5) to the underdog team. As basketball only involves scores of 2 and 3 points (1 point for free throws) the scoring range is quite intuitive for fans of the sport.
Over/Under: Basketball is a high scoring game, so betting on a total score of a game is a popular betting option for punters. Combining this betting option with winner + over/under is also popular to get better odds for a basketball bettor with a feel of the gameplay.

Overtime: Basketball is a game for winners - no draws or ties. In the event of a tied score in regulation, games go into an overtime period until a winner is declared. This is a simple bet - either overtime happens or it doesn't. Nerves alert: buzzer-beating shots can make or break a bet slip.
