Before you win on basketball betting, you need to learn how to analyze matches. In a live competition (live), this is easier to do, because you can visually evaluate the game, athletes and other parameters of what is happening on the court.
If during the game it is not possible to make a bet, then carry out the analysis based on:
- the current physical form of basketball players;
- command staff; data on past matches;
- motivation of athletes;
- the importance of the tournament.
In the analytical analysis of the game to place a bet on the total, consider its pace. This is not so much the speed of the players’ maneuvers as the dynamics of live balls thrown into the basket. If the athletes make a lot of unnecessary movements without result, then the teams will have only 150 points (75 for each).
Tips for new bettors
In order for a beginner to understand what to bet on in basketball and win, it is necessary to correctly assess the situation, control emotions and reasonably distribute your bank. At the start, you can ask experienced betters for advice, but you should not hope that one of them will fully reveal their secret of success.
How to bet on quarters
Any basketball game consists of four quarters. The list of bets is similar, as well as for the whole match. It is rational to bet on basketball by quarters if you are sure that some event will take place in a certain quarter.
You can place bets on the total in basketball taking into account the statistics, the pace of the game, the physical form of the players. Much of the success comes from the importance of the match.For example, in a top game, you can count on a higher number of goals scored than usual.
Live basketball betting is a unique chance to get increased odds. If at the beginning of the game the bookmaker offers odds of 1.5-1.7 for the victory of one of the teams, then in a real game these numbers often grow many times over.
Block shots in basketball mean blocked shots, when a forward (center or heavy) defensively can block an opponent’s shot. When betting on them, consider the ability of the front line to protect the basket from attacks. If it includes strong defenders who can be calculated statistically or visually in a real game. The second option, according to experienced bettors, is more reliable.
