There are several ways to bet on basketball in Las Vegas casinos. Here are a few common options:
- Moneyline: This is a straight-up bet on which team will win the game. The odds will be listed as a positive or negative number, with the favorite having a negative number (e.g. -150) and the underdog having a positive number (e.g. +120). To place a moneyline bet, you simply choose which team you think will win and place your wager.
- Point spread: In this type of bet, the favorite will be listed with a negative number (e.g. -7.5) and the underdog with a positive number (e.g. +7.5). To win a point spread bet, the favorite must win by more than the listed point spread, while the underdog must either win the game outright or lose by less than the point spread.
- Over/under: This type of bet is based on the total number of points scored in the game by both teams combined. The sportsbook will set a number, and you can bet on whether the final score will be over or under that number.
- Parlays: A parlay is a single bet that combines multiple bets into one. For example, you could bet on the moneyline for one game, the point spread for another game, and the over/under for a third game, and combine all three into a single parlay bet. Parlays often have higher payouts than individual bets, but they are also harder to win because all of your selections must be correct.
As for strategies, one common approach is to do thorough research on the teams and players involved in the games you want to bet on. This can include looking at statistics, analyzing recent performance, and taking into account any injuries or other factors that could impact the outcome. It’s also a good idea to shop around for the best lines and odds, as different sportsbooks may have slightly different numbers. Finally, it’s important to remember to manage your bankroll responsibly and never bet more than you can afford to lose.
