NBA Playoffs Betting Guide

If you want to know all about NBA Playoff Betting, you’re in the right place.
We’ll start out with the basics of sports betting.
If you already know about the basics, you skip to our NBA playoffs betting tips and strategies.
If you’re new to the world of NBA betting though, stick around because we’ll give you a quick walkthrough on it.
When it comes to betting on the NBA playoffs and sports betting in general, you need to know about two things:

  • What are betting Odds and how odds work during the NBA playoffs.
  • The different types of bets in the NBA playoffs

What are betting odds and how odds work during the NBA Playoffs

Odds tell you two things ahead of the playoffs.

1. The probability of an event
2. How much you can win if you bet on an outcome.
This is what betting odds look like in the US:

Lakers vs Rockets Moneyline odds

These odds are also called moneylines or vegas odds.
Moneylines and vegas odds during the NBA playoffs will also look like this.

The team with + (plus) odds here are the underdogs.
That would make the Rockets the underdogs for this playoffs faceoff because they have odds of +138.

If you bet $100 on the Rockets you’ll win $138 and get your $100 back for a total payout of $248.

The team with the minus (-) odds are the favorites.
The Lakers have odds of -167 for this hypothetical game in the NBA playoffs.

That mean’s in order to win $100 you’ll have to bet $167 on the Lakers.

You don’t have to bet in units of $100 and we used those numbers just to show you how betting odds work during the NBA playoffs.
You don’t worry about doing the math, when you open your bet slip, enter the amount you want to bet and we’ll run the numbers for you.
If you’re happy, you can click to confirm and place that bet.

Public Betting in the NBA Playoffs

Have you heard about betting with or against the public?
The public betting option is the team that is considered to be the favorite to win the game.
In this case, the people have spoken and the Lakers are favorites to beat the Rockets.

That opinion will be based on form.
If the Lakers have a superior regular-season record, it’s obvious that they seem more likely to win.

If you run with public pick during the NBA playoffs , you have higher probability of winning your bet.
The public betting option will have lower odds though.

Betting on the underdog gets you a better payout.
That's why many bettors often talk about betting against the public during the NBA playoffs.
Backing the underdog may get you better odds  but it can often be a risky bet during the playoffs.
