Basketball season is fast approaching. The National Basketball Association and the Korean Basketball League seasons will start next week. Thus, we recommend you learn different basketball betting options, including basketball team totals betting.
When betting on NBA or KBL team totals, you place an Over/Under wager on a team’s total points. For instance, in the LG Sakers vs. KCC Egis match, the betting odds are:
LG Sakers Team Total:
Over 104.5 (-120)
Under 104.5 (-110)
KCC Egis Team Total:
Over 94 (-110)
Under 94 (-120)
In the match above, you can bet on LG Sakers’ total. The sportsbook had the team as the favorite to win the game. If you think the team’s score will be under 104.5, a $110 wager will earn you $100 if LG Sakers scored 104 or less. On the other hand, you need to bet $120 to make a payout of $100 if the team scores 104 or more points.
Basketball Team Totals Betting
Knowing a team’s average points (112+), we may locate value on team totals bets. Some teams are noted for scoring frequently.
A team’s scoring average might help bettors estimate its total. For example, the Under seems strong if the LG Sakers average 90.5 points each game.
When betting team totals, examine the injury report. For example, the Sakers’ leading scorer being “out” for the KCC Egis game will affect their scoring.
Then there’s the matchup. Some teams beat others. Best offense vs. defense? These are some things to consider when you bet on basketball team totals.
