Series Prices in Basketball Playoffs Betting

November 30, 2010 NBA Basketball

Basketball playoffs betting odds always give you the ability to bet on a series.

This is where you bet on a team to win a particular series in NBA betting.  What things do you need to keep in mind as you make a series bet?

Basketball playoffs betting will show a series price before each of the best-of-seven game series get underway. This type of wager is great because it gives you action throughout the entire series in addition to offering you hedging opportunities if the team you bet on leads at any point during the series.  For example, if your team wins the first game of the series, you could hedge by taking the other team at updated odds for the series and lock in a profit.  It becomes even more attractive if your team takes a 2-0 lead or a 3-1 series lead since you really get a high price on the other team since they are trailing in the series.

A lot of people forget about the series price in basketball playoffs betting. You need to take a look at each series price because there may be some great bets available to you. The favorites are likely to be overpriced on the series bet but that doesn’t mean they won’t win.  Cleveland or the Lakers might be highly priced but they still may win.  What you may want to consider is some of the other series prices.  You can definitely consider the underdogs in a series.  If you like an underdog you can really do well.  For example, let’s say that you like Utah and they are +150 against Denver in their series.  If the Jazz would jump out to a 1-0 or 2-0 lead in the series you could then take the Nuggets at plus money and guarantee yourself a profit. Even if the series starts 1-1 you can probably still do that.  Oftentimes in a series you will see the road team get the split so if you took them in the series you can now hedge with the other side if you so choose.

Series prices are great to consider in NBA betting so don’t forget about them as the games continue. They can offer you a lot of different opportunities to make money from taking the underdog in a series to hedging once the series begins.  Series bets are just one of the great opportunities available to you in the NBA playoffs.
