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.

Oklahoma City Thunder 2016-17: The Return of Durant?

The Return of Durant Fans of the Oklahoma City Thunder who enjoy betting on basketball at SBG Global sportsbook are hoping that the team’s 2016-17 season will be just like Darkman II and features the Return of Durant. Only in this case it will not be ruthless, sadistic mob boss Robert G. Durant but All Star small forward Kevin Durant. Along with Russell Westbrook, the Thunder has the most dominant duo in the league – though LeBron James and Kyrie Irving might take offense to that (while Kevin Love hides inside a locker so he doesn’t get traded). Steph Curry and Klay Thompson might take offense too, but then they would have lost all touch with reality.

Cavaliers don’t have a Pick, but do they even need it?

Cleveland Cavs The Cleveland Cavaliers do not have pick in the first or second round of the 2016 NBA draft – having traded the former to the Boston Celtics (who in turn traded it to the Phoenix Suns) and the latter also to the Celtics. Which prompts fans of betting on basketball to wonder whether the brand new NBA champions need one. The higher-ups at Cleveland should be more concerned about retaining the services of Finals MVP LeBron James, who is a free agent with a $24 million player option – which grants James the power to decide if he wants to stay for another year or become a completely unrestricted free agent.

Back to the Drawing Board for the Golden State Warriors

Following a devastating loss in game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals to eventual champions the Cleveland Cavaliers, league MVP and Golden State Warriors stalwart Stephen Curry said they will “keep this memory so that it will fuel us as we stay together as a team,” because they will be back on this stage.

Cavaliers Make History Against History-Making Warriors

Cleveland Cavaliers  2016 ChampionsLeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers defied betting on basketball odds and made history last night, winning game 7 of the NBA Finals 93-89 to become the first team to come back from a 1-3 disadvantage – and winning the first major sports trophy for the Forest City in a exactly a gazillion years. And they did all of the above while facing the best regular season team in the history of the NBA. SBG Global sportsbook salutes the 2016 NBA champions. Game 7 of the championship series kept an entire country entranced – even president Barack Obama stopped doing whatever presidents do to watch the final minutes of the postseason.

Despite Consecutive Losses, GS Warriors Game 7 Favorites

GS Warriors game 7 favoritesIn accordance to the prophecy, the Cleveland Cavaliers justified their status as the favorites of people betting on basketball, won game 6 of the NBA Finals 115-101 at home, tied the series 3-3, and forced a game 7 on Sunday, June 19th at the Oracle Arena in Oakland. And to add insult to injury, LeBron James absolutely, totally, completely, utterly pwned Stephen Curry – including a vicious blocked shot with a side of trash talk. The King shot Curry down with extreme prejudice – execution style.
Nevertheless, the odds at SBG Global sportsbook favor the Golden State Warriors to win game 7:
