The National Basketball Association (NBA) is the premier men’s professional basketball league in the world, comprised of 30 teams (29 in the United States and 1 in Canada).
At bestsportsbooks.ca you will find everything you need in terms of all the necessary information regarding NBA tips, lines, predictions, picks, odds and the very best sportsbooks offer out there.
Here at bestsportsbooks.ca we will provide readers with predictions and tips for all the NBA action throughout the season, with long-term futures selections for the NBA champions, Conference (Eastern and Western) and Divisional titles or who the NBA ‘MVP’ will be. The beauty of futures bets is that they offer the potential for larger payouts, although this is offset by the increased difficulty of picking a winner.
Once again, the Golden State Warriors are strongly favoured to claim the NBA championship by the online sportsbooks, with Boston Celtics, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers and Toronto Raptors seen as being the most likely challengers. It’s difficult to make much of a case against the Warriors, but the Celtics are certainly in with a chance and it wouldn’t be the biggest shock in history were the Raptors to prevail.
We will also provide NBA betting previews and predictions on a game-by-game basis covering all the top action throughout the schedule. Among the NBA betting markets we will cover are the Head-to-Head Money Line, Point Spreads (a.k.a. Handicap), Game Point Totals (Over/ Under) and Teasers (this is a bet where the bettor can adjust the point spreads across two games, but there is a lower return on the bets in the event of a win as a result). Here at bestsportsbooks.ca, our NBA predictions will take into account all the key stats (home court advantage, average points For/Against, shooting percentage For/Against, etc), relevant team news (including any roster additions/subtractions) and any given game’s relevance to the two teams as the season progresses.
Best NBA Sportsbooks
There’s a huge selection of sportsbooks out there to choose from, so it’s no easy task when it comes to deciding where to go for your NBA betting. That’s why we’ve put together the names of some of the best Sportsbooks in terms of NBA betting to help you out.
The most popular NBA betting site for Canadian bettors is bet365, a sportsbook that is well known for its excellent sign-up bonus and great promotions. The bet365 site is very user-friendly and features numerous props, futures and additional betting lines available on the NBA.
Pinnacle has a fully justified reputation as a sportsbook that consistently offers the very best NBA odds (which really does more than makeup for the current lack of a Welcome Bonus over a relatively short period of time). They also provide great customer service and a resource centre where you are sure to enhance your betting knowledge. There’s also fast reliable live NBA betting available and they have an excellent mobile sportsbook with exactly the same features on offer as with their online sportsbook.
William Hill has a long history and is one of the oldest established sportsbooks on the planet. Not only do they provide a great live betting platform to place wagers during games, they also offer lots of betting options on each individual game, which all comes with some very competitive NBA odds. SportingBet is another site with a reputation for providing great bonuses and, aside from offering Money Line and spread options, they also provide a wide array of prop wagers and live betting lines.
888sport also has an enticing sign-up bonus for new customers and it’s a sportsbook that’s known for their fast payouts. BWin is a good option if you’re looking for a great mobile sportsbook, particularly one that also offers competitive NBA odds, props and futures.
NBA live betting can sometimes provide bettors with an opportunity to back the team you want to win a game at considerably more attractive NBA odds than you could pre-game, particularly if you think your chosen team will start a game slowly or their opponents are renowned for coming off the blocks quickly before fading as the game wears on.
Another important factor in NBA live betting is the statistics. For example, it’s always sensible to look at a team’s period splits when live betting. A little research might reveal that a team has developed a trend for scoring heavily in the first quarter with home-court advantage.
Another option with NBA live betting is that it can sometimes enable bettors to hedge pre-game wagers in some instances, such as when your selected team is several points to the good, then backing the opposition at inflated NBA odds.
The NBA broadcasting rights in Canada are currently held by TSN, Sportsnet, NBA TV Canada and RDS. However, other options are available if you want to watch the NBA action unfolding live, thanks to the option of live streaming from various online sportsbooks. A prime example is bet365, who provide their customers with a vast range of sports on live streaming.
Specific requirements to watch a live streaming of a game on the bet365 site can vary, with just a funded account being required for some events or have placed a bet in the previous 24 hours for others. Live streaming at bet365 is also available via their app on your mobile device for added convenience, in addition to the desktop option.
William Hill is another sportsbook that offers live streaming via desktop and mobile devices, with a funded account or has had a bet within the previous 24 hours again being all that’s required for access. There is also live streaming offered at Betway, with the only proviso being that you have a funded account with them.
