Basketball Betting Basics

Basketball online betting Pointspread and total.
On a pointspread wager, the team wagered must win by the pointspread. On an over/under wager, the total points of the contest by both teams, overtime included, must fall over or under the side selected.

Example
The posted line is the L.A. Lakers -10 at Portland Trailblazers +10 and the over/under total is 189.
The odds are $1.10 to win $1.00 (-110) unless otherwise indicated.

For the player who wagers on the Lakers -10, the team must win by more than 10 points for this to be a winning wager. For the player who wagers on Portland +10, the team must either win the game, or lose by less than 10 points for this to be a winning wager. If the outcome falls on the number, either way, the bet is declared a “Push”, and the original stake is refunded.

For the player who wagers on the total points of this contest by both teams to be “Over” 189, the combined final score of both teams must exceed 189. For the player who wagers on the total points of this contest by both teams to be “Under” 189, the combined final score of both teams must be less than 189. If the outcome falls on the number, the bet is declared a “Push”, and the original stake is refunded.
