  • Handicap: In live basketball betting, a handicap bet is where the favourite is given a handicap to overcome while the underdog team is given a head start. This is a great way to level things out between two mismatched sides.

  • Over/Under: Rather than picking a winning team, you can place a live basketball totals bet, where you bet on whether you think over or under a specific number of points will be scored in the match.

  • Winning margin: A winning margin bet in basketball invites you to place a wager on how many points you think a team will win by.

  • Will there be overtime?: As simple as they come, this bet related to the basketball game time and enables you to place a wager on whether you think there will be overtime.

  • Quarters/Half: A great way to add value to your betting slip is to bet on outcomes in each quarter or half. For instance, you can bet on the team you think will win each quarter.

  • Player props: There are a whole host of live player prop bets available to basketball fans, including the number of assists, total three pointers, and number of blocks, among others.

Live Basketball Tips and Strategies

Betting on live basketball doesn’t need to be complicated, but it does help if you develop a betting strategy to help you. Discover our basketball betting guide to help get you started!

We've got a wide range of sports betting tips online , as well as the following strategies that will guide you as you make your live basketball selections this season:

  • Use stats to your advantage: Basketball is a game of stats, with dribbles, assists, dunks, blocks, and fouls all playing a significant role in the overall makeup of a game. Use up-to-date basketball stats to your advantage as you place live bets, particularly if you’re keen to include some player props on your betting slip.

  • Don’t bet on the team you support: Only placing live bets on the team you support or your favourite team will only cloud your judgement, and it’s best avoided. Stick to supporting your team and place live bets on other fixtures during the season.

  • Look at schedules and injuries: Schedules and injuries influence the outcome of basketball matches, so it’s important to consider a team’s schedule before backing them. This is particularly important if a team has recently played many on the road and is looking fatigued. A fun way to keep up to day is by reading sports blogs .

Advantages of Live Basketball Betting

While pre-match basketball bets are still a great option, there are several advantages to placing live bets on the action as it unfolds:

  • You can see in real-time how a team is performing before backing them. This is helpful as basketball is often unpredictable, and you can respond to how a team starts in the first quarter before deciding how to bet.

  • The live basketball betting market is perfect for fans of prop bets, and you can make a whole host of selections based on how you think your favourite players will perform on the court.

  • If you haven’t made it home in time to place your bets and the action has already started, you can easily make a whole host of live bets without worrying about missing the start of the action.
