Explanation of NBA betting terms
Before placing bets on any sport or to something else the one who wants to bet should have the knowledge of the terms used in that sport. Here we are explaining some terms used in NBA betting and those who want to bet on NBA may find it helpful. Money line: this is one of the common used terms in the sports of America which means to win. For example if you have placed bet on some team to win you may say for instance Indiana pacers money line which means the team must have to win for your bet to be correct.
Point spread: there are many terms which refers to the point spread, some calls it point spread, or some calls it the line or the spread but all of these terms means the same. This is one of the most common used bets in which the odds maker predict the favorite team will win by certain number of points. This number of points is then called the point spread, the favorite team is denoted by the minus sign and the other one is by the plus sign. Say for example the favorite is -6.5 and other one is +6.5. If the one is supporting the favorite team then they will only win the bet if the team wins the match and the victory point margin should be greater than the point spread, but if you are supporting the other team you may win if the team wins, tie of match or the favorite team wins but under the margin of point spread means the victory points did not exceeds from the point spread.
Under/ over: under and over is the number of points which the odds masker expects to be the total score of the contest from both sides and with the inclusion of over time. Say for example the under/over is 195 then those who have placed bets on over will win when the total score of the match exceeds 195 for example 196 or more, and those who have placed bets on under will win when the total score is under 195 say 194 or less.
Money line and point spread are also called side bets or betting sides as in these the gambler bet on one side means on one team. Under/ over is some time called betting total in which the gambler gambles on the whole match rather than on one team. Propositions: this is also a type of bet used in NBA or could be on other sports, this not similar to any of the above. In the proposition betting the gambler has to predict certain thing regarding the match for example which team will score point first in the match, how many score the certain player will make? What will be the percentage of score for a certain team? How many score the particular team will score from the field? These all are the examples of the prop bets which the gambler could gamble on the particular match.
