When you start betting on NBA games, you might have tried handicaps and money lines. You can take your NBA betting to the next level via advanced NBA bets, which are half and quarter, multiple, teasers, prop bets, and futures.
You can use the advanced NBA betting types to spice things up. Include the advanced betting types into your betting portfolio to get more winning opportunities when you bet on basketball.
Advanced NBA Bets
The first advanced betting type is Half and Quarter. It allows the player to bet on the quarter or half results instead of the whole game. Basketball betting platforms will offer different money lines, handicaps, and totals for the quarter or halftime results.
According to a basketball forum, a team that wins the game doesn’t win all the quarters. Also, the winning team might trail a lot at halftime. So sportsbooks come up with quarter and halftime wagers to allow players to analyze the state of the game.
Sportsbooks can also offer Multiples. Some sportsbooks call them accumulators or parlays. Also, you need to combine two or more selections in one or more matches. If one of the wagers is unsuccessful, you will not get any winnings—the odds of winning become more extensive with every consecutive wager. At the same time, the odds of winning decrease.
A teaser is a variety of accumulators. However, it comes with fixed odds. Players could adjust the odds by reducing points from the favorite or adding to the underdog. Also, you need to pick everything correctly to win.
Futures allow you to bet on the team that you think will win the conference or NBA title even before the start of the season. We suggest wagering before the beginning of the season because the odds will be adjusted throughout the year. However, the odds you wagered will remain unchanged.
