NBA Betting Tips 2022/2023: Favourites for the title and odds

The preseason wasn’t a great overview of what the season would look like, especially for Los Angeles Clippers that did a poor job but are one of the favourites to win the championship. The odds for the Clippers to win are around 7.50 depending on the bookmaker.

With Jayson Tatum leading the squad, Boston Celtics are looking amazing this season with many bookmakers recognising and giving them 5.50 odds. Even if they are getting great support, they are experiencing other internal problems like the injuries of Robert Williams and scandals surrounding their head coach.

The defending champions and their golden boy Steph Curry will have the interesting task of leading a few young players including Jonathan Kumings, Ryan Rollins, Moses Moody, Patrick Baldwin JR, and James Wiseman. With the current odds of 6.75, they are definitely one of the favourites.

The runner-ups Milwaukee Bucks, with their Greek giant and his lieutenants Middleton and Holiday, appear among the favourites once more with odds of 6.50. With an established team with not so many young players, they will try to reach the finals again.

For the best betting advice, check out our NBA betting tips at bettingexpert from the expert tipsters in our community.

NBA Betting Stats

If you are serious about your NBA betting, it’s important to understand the biases reflected in NBA betting markets. Examining a large sample size of NBA stats can help you identify betting angles other bettors and NBA tipsters are missing. In this section we will take a look at NBA stats dating back to the 2007 season.

Straight Up Win-Loss NBA Stats

The table below displays the win-loss percentages for NBA teams across a number of situations since the 2007 NBA season. We can see that home teams almost 60% of games in the NBA which is one of the highest home advantages in American sports.

An important factor when betting on the NBA is rest. Do we see any advantage for teams playing with more rest than their opponents? Since the 2007 NBA season we can see that when a team is playing with an advantage in days rests, they win almost 56% of games played. When betting on the NBA, it’s important to account for any significant advantage in rest for one team over another.

Home Teams 59.5% 40.5%
Away Teams 40.5% 59.5%
Favourites 69.1% 30.9%
Underdogs 30.9% 69.1%
Home Favourites 71.0% 29.0%
Home Underdogs 35.1% 64.9%
Away Favourites 64.9% 35.1%
Away Underdogs 29.0% 71.0%
After A Win 53.9% 46.1%
After A Loss 46.0% 54.0%
After 1 Days Rest 51.6% 48.4%
After 2 or 3 Days Rest 52.0% 48.0%
After 4 or More Days Rest 51.0% 49.0%
With More Rest 55.5% 44.5%

NBA Stats Against The Spread

The most popular way to bet on the NBA is to bet against the spread. As we can see from the data below, there has been no clear advantage for teams playing across a range of situations since the 2007 season. While we saw that teams playing with an advantage in rest won almost 56% of games played, that advantage was not mirrored when playing against the market, in which case such teams covered the spread just under 50% of the time.

Home Teams 49.6% 50.4%
Away Teams 50.4% 49.6%
Favourites 50.2% 49.8%
Underdogs 49.8% 50.2%
Home Favourites 49.8% 50.2%
Home Underdogs 49.1% 50.9%
Away Favourites 50.9% 49.1%
Away Underdogs 50.2% 49.8%
After A Win 49.4% 50.6%
After A Loss 50.6% 49.4%
After 1 Days Rest 50.2% 49.8%
After 2 or 3 Days Rest 49.7% 50.3%
After 4 or More Days Rest 49.4% 50.6%
With More Rest 49.6% 50.4%

Over Under NBA Betting Stats

Points totals in the NBA can vary between south of 180 points to north of 240 points depending on the playing styles of the teams involved. Since the 2007 NBA season we can see that there has been a slight advantage for bettors who have bet the Under, particularly in Division and Playoff games, in which almost 52% of games ended going under the total.

Conference Games 49.4% 50.6%
Division Games 48.3% 51.7%
Playoff Games 48.3% 51.7%
Non Conference Games 49.2% 50.8%
Non Division Games 49.6% 50.4%
Regular Season Games 49.4% 50.6%

Bet On The NBA

If you intend to bet on NBA games, it’s worthwhile knowing a little about the sport itself. Remember, when you bet on NBA games, be sure to use our free NBA betting tips!

Basketball is the most modern major sport, having only been invented in 1891. Unlike American football, baseball and ice hockey, it didn’t have its origins in another, much older sport. When Canadian Phys Ed teacher James Naismith invented basketball, it was a completely original, unique idea.

Because of this, basketball has always had a young, “hip” edge to it, and the NBA is hipness personified. The team behind the global promotion of the NBA have been doing an excellent job for a long time, because star players from Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson through to Kobe Bryant and LeBron James are as well-known as any celebrity.

NBA teams play 82 regular season games, so even before the excitement of the playoffs and the NBA Finals, there is an abundance of weekly games to bet on, and plenty of bettingexpert’s free NBA betting tips to take full advantage of!

When consistently betting on any sport it is advisable to employ a sports betting strategy. The bettingexpert Academy can help with forming a betting strategy. Bettingexpert’s NBA Betting Guide is detailed and concise, and you will find everything you need to improve your NBA betting by checking it out.

Here are a few pointers from our NBA betting guide:

  • Only Bet When There’s Value – It’s common-sense, yet many forget the most basic rule in sports betting: Don’t waste money on bets that aren’t likely to come off, or don’t earn you anything if they do.
  • Specialise – NBA offers a multitude of betting markets. Find out what market you enjoy the most and have the most success with, and focus your attention on it.
  • Have Several Bookmaker Accounts – Not all bookies will offer the best odds for your bet, having several accounts ensures you get the most bang for your buck.
  • Keep A Record – Maintaining a record of your prior wagers enables you to see where you might have gone wrong, and also allows you to get a clear picture of what markets you excel at.

More specific, NBA related advice includes

Do Your Preseason Research

The more you know about the sport of NBA, the luckier you will become in your NBA betting. Preseason, find out which teams have strengthened their squads and which have lost key players. There is usually a buzz around specific teams long before a ball has been pitched, and this will often be an insight into early success on the field and maybe even throughout the season.

Check Head-to-Head Matchups

One of the best ways of forecasting a result is by examining their previous Head-to-Head matches. By seeing the previous six results between two teams that are scheduled to meet, one can often form a solid opinion as to the outcome of their latest meeting.

Learn To Spot The Upset

Every NBA league team will play a ton of games during the course of a season. For example, during the regular season in the NBA teams will play 82 games. Even teams that win their divisions and progress to the playoffs lose a lot of matches, around 50 on average. Top NBA teams are pretty much favourites every time they play, yet they will still lose one in three of their games, so picking those games and backing the other team to pull off the upset will prove quite good.

Home & Away

One might think that it would always be beneficial for a team to play at their home stadium, but that’s not always the case. A sequence of home defeats can turn the most loyal fan base into a baying mob, and when that happens, the bused team will actually start to play better NBA in away stadiums.

If you would like to know more, visit the bettingexpert Academy and read our basketball betting guide.

Bookmakers For Betting On NBA

It wasn’t always the case, but these days it’s not too hard to find a top online bookmaker who caters in-depth for fans of NBA betting, and comes armed with expert NBA betting tips.
When choosing your online bookmaker try and stick to the well-established names you are familiar with, and be sure that your bookmaker provides these four key elements:

  • Consistently Competitive Odds
  • A Wide Range Of Betting Markets
  • All Major Competitions Covered
  • Extensive In-Play Betting Markets

In-play betting has really caught on in the past few years, and enables you to bet on the action during the course of the game, which only adds to the excitement. Some bookmakers now provide Live-Streaming for many sports including NBA, which will also add to the whole in-play betting experience.

To find the ideal bookmaker for your NBA betting, be sure to read our detailed bookmaker reviews.
