Strategies to Consider for Basketball Playoff Bets


While it’s never easy to find a profitable NBA betting strategy that will always suit you, following some expert tips just might be the best step for you to eventually create your tactics.


     1. Be a neutral NBA bettor


Everyone has their own biases and favourite NBA teams, but that doesn’t mean you should immediately bet on them even if the odds aren’t in their favor.


Don’t let your emotions get in the way of a better judgment or risk making a mistake. It’s important to take note that successful bettors think clearly and make decisions based on solid and accurate information.


     2. Pay attention to details


Before placing a bet, take into consideration the players included in the lineup or a team’s records. You have to carefully assess both the favourites and the underdogs to make a good decision.


You also need to do regular research and be up to date with any injuries or suspensions to key players is important. After all, if you don’t, you could be overlooking something that just might end up costing you big time.


You should focus on offensive and defensive effectiveness, efficiency on turnovers, rebounding success, and three-point shooting abilities. 


     3. Observe, but don’t solely rely on the trends


Home and away court games are one trend you can check. Looking at research done by, they found out some fascinating findings in regards to home teams. 


For a seven-game series, the best time to bet on favourites in NBA playoff games is during matches 1, 5, and 7, especially when they are playing at home, and in closeout situations. It gives them an early lead at game 1 then a close game at match 5 until the deciding moment in game 7.

Though basketball betting trends are informative and are sometimes worth analyzing, what happened in the past doesn’t necessarily mean that the same thing could happen or influence today or the future. Although there are cases where some teams dominate the league, that won’t always be the case.


So it’s a good thing to compare past data against current observations to counter-check if the trends apply to each game or NBA championship season.



     4. Look for value bets


Bookies are good at analyzing and defining their betting odds. However, there are times they provide weak lines especially when there are a lot of scheduled matches. 


You can bet more than once, especially on games leading to the NBA finals. But only bet on games that offer value. It’s either a sure-win bet or the winning probabilities and betting lines for the bets are high.
