NBA Lines

NBA Point Spreads provides you with the most current, competitive point spreads available to help you analyze daily NBA match-ups. NBA point spreads indicate which team is favored and by what number of points. The favorite will be indicated as giving points and the underdog will be receiving points. A bet on the favorite will be indicated by a negative(-) number and means that in order to make the indicated amount of money, your team must cover the spread by that number of points. Similarly, underdogs are represented by a positive number(+) and gain that number of points.

In example: if the Knicks spread is +4.5, it indicates that they are underdogs and that if you bet on them, in order to win the bet, they must lose by no more than four and a half points. Since half-points are impossible to attain in the NBA, this generally is intended to eliminate a tie or “Push”.

NBA Money Lines

NBA moneyline betting allows for you to bet on the outcome of an NBA game with no point spreads involved. It is, plain and simple, picking the winner of any given match-up. Since you are not betting on the point spread, the big difference is how much money you make or how much money you have to put up to make a certain return on your investment. The money line is determined by Las Vegas book makers which will reflect how much you will win per 100 unite you bet.

If the Spurs moneyline is -160 against the Jazz, who are at +170, the Spurs are the favorite. This means that in order to make $100 on a Spurs victory, you must put up $160 and then the Spurs need to win. Conversely, for an underdog bet, a positive number indicates how much you stand to win on a $100 bet. In our example, the Jazz winning would earn you $170 if you placed $100 on them.

NBA Point Totals

A much simpler bet, perhaps, than the point spread or the moneyline bet, in NBA basketball is the totals bet. Any given book will set a point total for a game and you can bet money on whether or not the combined score of both teams will be "over" or "under" the proposed total.  There are also some books that will allow wagering on an individual teams point total.

An example of a totals bet (over under) would be if the Bulls are playing the Hornets and the total is given as 194 and you bet on the under with an actual total of 189, then you would be a winner. Again, any ties on totals bets are pushes.
