Basketball Betting

Basketball Betting Guidance from Free Betting Online

Basketball betting has undergone many of same changes as other sports like Baseball, American Football, and Ice Hockey, where UK cable sports channels and the increasing diversification of UK bookmakers have led to something of a Renaissance in traditionally North American sports.

Indeed, had you asked any UK punter about basketball ten years ago, they probably would have mentioned the Harlem Globe Trotters or Michael Jordan. Thankfully today, British punters don't have to rely on Bugs Bunny and Scooby Doo cartoons for their basketball expertise! The sport now gains extensive coverage on channels like SKy Sports and increased interest in playing the game in Britain itself with such organisations as the British Basketball league (BBL). All of this has helped turn basketball into a UK major betting market.

The premier events in the basketball betting calendar are the NBA Season and Championship and the FIBA World Championship, but many UK bookmakers also cover the WNBA as well as National Leagues outside America.

Basketball Betting Markets and Tips :

The main markets for basketball bets focus on the NBA Season and the NBA championship, with many book makers offering fixed odds for an outright win as well as game lines, and some handicap betting.

If you're looking to go beyond the NBA, some sportsbooks cover the Woman's event, the WNBA, plus European and International leagues like the French Pro, Itlain Seri and Spanish Leagues. William Hill and Betfair are particularly good for these markets. Our bookmakers of choice for Basketball betting, though, have to be Paddy Power and Stan James, who provide an impressive range of betting options on NBA matches including handicap betting, and match and quarter total points.
