NBA Playoffs betting is different than regular season NBA betting even though it may not seem like it.
What this means to you when handicapping NBA Playoffs odds is that you can’t do things the same way you did during the regular season. Let’s look at some of the differences between regular season and NBA Playoffs betting.
NBA Playoffs betting begins with either a five or seven-game series. This gives you a chance to bet NBA Playoffs odds before the series even begins. It is always exciting to make a series bet in NBA Playoffs betting. That way you can be in action for all of the series without having to make individual bets in NBA Playoffs betting. If you choose to bet the series in NBA Playoffs odds you may also have chances to hedge your bet as the series progresses. Making a series bet is just one of the many differences from the NBA Playoff season versus the regular season.
Another difference you will notice in NBA Playoffs betting is the must-win game. There are going to be countless occasions when a team simply has to win to survive. Taking the team in a must-win situation doesn’t always work as well as you might think in NBA Playoffs betting. When a team has dominated another team in NBA Playoffs betting it sometimes continues. In recent seasons the NBA Playoffs odds makers has also adjusted to the bounce back factor in NBA Playoffs betting and it is not as easy to take a team off a loss to bounce back in their next game.
The NBA Playoffs see more public bettors starting to wager. Since all of the games are televised you can count on more public bettors in NBA Playoffs betting. This means that teams like the Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers are going to get even more attention in NBA Playoffs betting. You can still wager on these teams but you have to pick and choose your spots more carefully. Sometimes taking these teams on the road is the way to go since they will be laying fewer points than when they are at home.
The NBA Playoffs are simply different than the regular season. You must handicap differently and think differently as you wager during the NBA Playoffs if you want to have success. Keep that in mind and you can have success betting the NBA Playoffs this season.
