Basketball Betting and NBA Betting

The NBA is a great league for basketball betting fans and our sportsbook at SBG Global offers superb NBA betting options. Basketball betting is a bit different than other sports because there are so many games on the board duing the typical 82-game season. Keep in mind that the NBA betting season has different parts.

You have the early part of the season with teams feeling each other out, the meat of the season when teams play the bulk of their games, and the NBA playoffs where NBA basketball betting is somewhat different with each team playing up to seven games against the other. We definitely need to handicap each one of these parts differently.


We have to change our ratings and our feelings about teams as they move from one part of the season to another. Some basketball betting players will wait out the first couple of weeks of the season and let the dust settle before jumping headfirst into the pro basketball betting season.

You don't have to wait to start betting on NBA basketball but be aware that things change throughout the season. Futures betting odds for the NBA may be updated weekly or daily depending on matchups, injuries, and team trends.

You always want to be aware of the different philosophies of teams, and coaches as you look at basketball betting. Sometimes basketball betting gamblers look only at the results, not necessarily the strength of schedule and other intangibles that can be important. Don't make that mistake.

Look beyond just the final score and consider other factors like travel, injuries, scheduling, revenge, etc. as you look at the basketball betting lines. Take a look at the matchups as you examine the basketball betting line each day.

If you take into consideration more than just the final score you can win money at basketball betting this season.

Basketball Betting Over/Under Wagers to take and avoid

NBA Betting AdviceAs any self-respecting basketball betting fan knows, Las Vegas released the over/under for all NBA teams with their projected win totals for the 2016-17 season.

The Pressure is Building for the Suns

Phoenix Suns basketball betting pressureBasketball betting season is always entertaining, but the playoffs are arguably the most entertaining part. Getting into the playoffs is always special and signifies that a team is on the right track. Missing the playoffs is never a good sign, especially when you’re missing out several years consecutively. That’s why there’s so much pressure on first year head coach Earl Watson to be able to bring the Phoenix Suns to the playoffs for the first time since the 2009 – 2010 season. 

The Best of the NBA Regular Season Schedule

2106 NBA Regular Season Schedule There are few things in life that provide the kind of thrill basketball betting does. The NBA has some of the highest paid athletes in the world and for good reason; they provide some of the best entertainment available. The NBA is quite capable of providing sound entertainment around the year, but even then some games are always more exciting than others. Watching budding rivalries or two superstar teams go at it is considerably more exciting than watching one team annihilate another.  Recently the NBA schedule was released giving betting sportsbooks the opportunity to throw together betting lines for this year’s most anticipated games. Let’s take a look at the 5 basketball games gambling enthusiasts won’t want to miss. 

The Chicago Bulls’ Valentine does not get a single Rose

Could Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler get along in the backcourt?Chicago Bulls’ basketball betting fans were mostly concerned about one thing. Could Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler get along in the backcourt? Rose being traded to the New York Knicks rendered that question moot, but it also opens the door for 14th overall pick in the first round of the NBA draft Denzel Valentine to become in 2016-17 what Rose was to the Bulls in 2008-09. Sure, Rose was the 1st overall pick in that year’s draft, but as they say, beggars can’t be choosers.

The Milwaukee Bucks meet their Maker

Milwaukee Bucks  newsFans who pulled the trigger on betting on basketball on the Milwaukee Bucks at SBG Global sportsbook last season ended up like deer caught in the headlights. In spite of a promising 2014-15 campaign and group of very young and very skilled players, the Bucks finished 2015-16 with a 33-49 records and failed to qualify to the playoffs. Nevertheless, general manager John Hammond stuck to his gut and unearthed another obscure player in the 2016 NBA draft. In 2013, it was Grecian Giannis Antetokounmpo; this year, it’s Australian/Sudanese Thon Maker. Hammond is pretty much the Brangelina of professional basketball.
