What should I know about the NBA before betting?

A gambler that is interested in NBA betting should familiarize themselves with some, several, most or all of the teams in the league.

How many teams a bettor decides to follow, he or she should stick to wagering on those specific teams only.

Fortunately, the NBA is one of the most popular sports leagues in the world and following most, if not all, of the teams can be quite easy.

Following a team can include watching or listening to game broadcasts or streams, monitoring statistics, researching betting trends, reading team news and twitter accounts, and getting information from team and league beat writers and analysts.

The more information a bettor can consume about the NBA, the more likely they are to achieve success when betting on NBA basketball.

While it is easy for naysayers to say that an over-proliferation of information could lead to confusion for a casual bettor, it would seem more likely that a professional bettor can never have too much information at their disposal.

Prospective NBA basketball bettors should also familiarize themselves with game times, scheduling quirks and rivalry information that can have an effect on games just as much as statistics, trends and recent performance.
