This means all the stories, past results, current forms, and trends surrounding the players. Having more knowledge enables them to devise their tips and post them on the page. The bettingexpert basketball guide also has valuable information you can use to make your predictions better.

CBA Teams and Format

The CBA consists of 20 teams divided into four groups of five teams. They all play three games against in-group teams and two games against out-of-group teams. This totals 42 rounds during the regular season. The playoffs will include the top 12 teams, which will fiesta advance to the round of 12, quarterfinals, semifinals and lastly, the finals.

This is the newest format that the Chinese League has adopted and will continue to use for the 2023/24 season, starting October 10. The teams were originally divided into two divisions, and while the division still stands on paper, they have decided to add more games this way and make the league even more attractive. It also makes for a lot of opportunities when making CBA predictions.

CBA Predictions and Past Winners

Making prime predictions is much easier when one is familiar with the history of the league. The CBA was established and first played in 1995, with Bayi Rockets becoming their first-ever champions. The Rockets then went on to win six titles in a row.

However, the Guangdong Southern Tigers are the most winningest club in history with 11 titles. They actually made 13 consecutive finals appearances between the 2002 and 2012 seasons. However, after winning three titles in a row, between 2018 and 2020, the Southern Tigers were overturned by the Liaoning Flying Leopards last season.

As far as the favourite CBA picks for the 2023/24 season, the Zhejiang Golden Bulls are massive favourites, along with defending champions Liaoning Flying Leopards and the ever-present Guangdong Southern Tigers.

Here is a list of some past winners which could be very important for your future CBA predictions.

How to Bet on CBA?

Making correct CBA predictions requires a lot of work and dedication. Even though the best and simplest way would be checking our page and following the tips and CBA picks provided by our tipsters, there is still a lot more that goes into it.

Firstly, one needs to know the history of the league. It is best to learn which are the top and most successful CBA teams and cover their background. At the same time, it is also important to know player movements, especially the pickups of foreign players coming from the NBA or Euroleague.

Secondly, one needs to follow the league and all the current results. Knowing which team is hot and which one is out of form is very crucial for making good CBA picks. It can also allow a punter to get a surprise win with higher odds.

Finally, being familiar with the sport, the rules, and the trends is another important aspect. That way, one can easily cover some minor markets that tend to be overlooked. But to really be good at making CBA predictions, you have to keep a betting diary which allows you to keep track of all the past wagers you’ve made.

Why Is CBA So Popular?

While the league has been around since 1995, its popularity has skyrocketed in recent years. In the beginning, it was most popular in surrounding Asian countries, but now it is familiar to fans all over the world. The main reason for that is its attractive play style and rule set.

The CBA has adopted an NBA format of four 12-minute quarters. Resulting in longer games, more points, and interesting finishes. Teams are allowed to have two non-Asan players in their teams. But if they finish bottom five the season prior, they are allowed to add one more.

Interestingly, teams are allowed to play non-Asian players for six quarters only, and only one non-Asian player in the fourth quarter of the game. Nevertheless, this did not prevent players like Stephon Marbury, Brandon Jennings, and Jimmer Fredette from becoming stars in China.

Some of the known players that appear currently in the CBA are former NBA stars like Michael Beasley (Shanghai Dongfang), Eric Bledsoe (Shanghai Dongfang), Jonathon Simmons (Shanxi Zhongyu), and Jeremy Lin (Guangzhou Loong Lions). If you follow how they play, you may be able to be more successful in making CBA predictions.

Expert CBA Picks

To be successful at making good CBA predictions, you need to be dedicated and follow the game and the league. It takes a lot to become an expert tipster and establish a good profile. The way visitors are able to decide whether to follow you or not is based on your performance. Each tipster profile consists of overall profit, form, and yield. If you are good enough, your stats will propel you to becoming a top tipster and even allow you to win some monthly prizes.

But to get there, you need to be sure to make only the correct CBA picks. Be sure to keep a diary, and follow the trends around the league, player movements, current results, and main stories. Also, be mindful of the responsible gambling rules, as you don’t want to be spending more than you are comfortable investing. 

With time, patience, dedication, and a lot of good CBA predictions made, you too can become a successful tipster.
