NBA betting odds are available at the half on games throughout the season.
If you are betting halftimes in NBA odds at sportsbooks you need to be quick. The halftimes only last about 15 minutes so you don’t have much time. You need to be ready.
NBA betting odds at the half are definitely interesting to consider. Sometimes when looking at NBA halftimes at sportsbooks you can look at some trends that could help. Some teams continually struggle in the first half and play well in the second half. That will not be factored into the NBA betting odds and you may be able to pick some good spots for a wager. You do have to remember that the NBA betting odds maker is going to adjust a little bit in the 2nd half based on a team having a big lead, but the adjustment is not as much as you might think. NBA betting oddsmakers still rely mainly on the full line for the game and split that number. They don’t put a lot of stock in what has already happened in the first half.
Since we know that the NBA odds maker really makes the betting line mainly on dividing the opening line in half we are going to see the halftime lines move quite a bit. You might notice more line movement on NBA betting odds at the half than on the full game. That does not mean these plays always win versus the NBA betting odds, but it does mean that you are going to see some line movement on NBA betting odds at the half.
There are a couple of main things to consider with halftime NBA betting odds. First, the score and the situation and second the line movement. You might be able to find some bargains if the favored team in the game is trailing at the half. For example, let’s say the Lakers are favored against the Kings by 12 points but are trailing by one at the half. The halftime NBA betting odds might have Los Angeles at -8. Now instead of laying -12 for the game you are laying -7. You got a five point bargain off the opening NBA betting odds.
Line movement is also important to consider in NBA odds. If the wiseguys are pounding a game at the half you might want to take a look too. Don’t blindly play every game they do, but definitely take a look as you consider halftime NBA odds.
