Bet NBA Basketball Online – Golden Rules for Betting Totals During the NBA Finals



Did You Know that Over/Under betting is the second most common type of wagering in basketball after point spread betting? In over/under betting, you’re making a simple, easy-to-understand wager on whether the total score is going to be over or under the set game total for the contest you’re betting on. If the combined final sores of both teams is higher than the set game total odds, then the over wins…if it is lower than the set total, then the under wins.

Don’t Know Much About History?

If you don’t know by now you should know that ding your homework’ on both teams involved is an absolute must! How are both teams trending in recent games? Is one team playing Over or Under their game totals consistently? Are any starters or key reserves injured, thereby likely affecting their respective teams’ final scoring total? Do your homework and find out as much about both teams and their O/U ways involved in any game you’re betting on, not just the NBA Finals.

Home and Away Scoring

Does either or both teams involved in the game you’re betting on average more or fewer points at home or on the road? Does a particular star, like Toronto’s Kyle Lowry pay like a world-beater at home and a wide-eyed rookie on the road? You need to know about each team and their home and away scoring!

Find the Lowest or Highest Total You Can!

Simply put, if you’re betting on an NBA Finals matchup or any other NBA contest for that matter, you simply need to find either the highest or lowest Over/Under Total that you can depending on what wager you’ve decided to make. If you like the Under, then find the highest total that you can. Conversely, if you like the Over, then you should look for the lowest Over/Under Total possible.
