The National basketball Associat.ion (NBA) alone features 30 teams playing 82 games each in a span of 8 months (from November to June).

Meanwhile, College Basketball features 347 schools in 32 Division I conferences. The season starts November and culminates with the much anticipated Tournament in March, aptly called "March Madness".

With so many games to choose from and handicap, Basketball wagers can be daunting for novice bettors. But if you put in the time and effort to gather and analyze as much information as you can about the teams, you can be a consistent winner!

Basketball wagers use much the same procedure as wagering on American Football - point spreads are used to handicap the favorites and underdogs for any given game.

Money Lines and Over and Under Totals are also popular for Basketball wagering as well. Online sportsbooks usually require 43 minutes of play for wagering to take place at the NBA while at the NCAA, 35 minutes are needed.

Basketball Wagering Tips

Here are 10 easy to follow basketball wagering tips to help you win your basketball wagers:

1. Let The Game Come To You

You often hear this adage from coaches who are trying reel in an out of control player. And you should listen to it too. An NBA season is 10-months long. There are plenty of opportunities to bet.

Use the early part of the season to gauge the tendencies of each team. See how the new players are jelling, look at the system of the new coaches, etc. Make your own bench mark for each team to block out the preseason hype.

And when wagering time comes, look for lines getting steam, especially close to tipoff.

2. Consider Over / Under

Odds makers already have their tried and tested formula for spread and money line wagers. But in basketball, any player is capable of scoring big (or getting shutdown) each night. This makes the Over / Under wager a sharp bettor's best friend.

3. Check Player Availability

Key players (even coaches) may be unavailable for the next game. Injuries, suspensions, off-court issues, even designated rests can affect player availability.

During the first three season of Lebron James' return to Cleveland, the Cavs are 129-43 in games with him and 4-18 in games without him. When Lebron sits, you're almost sure the Cavs are going to lose.

4. Keep An Eye On The Schedule

The NBA releases its schedule weeks before the start of the regular season. Sports pundits are quick to mark marquee matchups like Christmas Day games, the first rematch of the previous Finals' teams, etc.

But value can be found on games that are NOT nationally televised. You can more objectively weigh the odds of each team winning without the media hype or drama from the big teams or star players.

5. Look Back On Back To Backs

The NBA schedule is one of the most brutal in all of sports. Teams travel cross-country and play on back-to-back nights. Sometimes three games on four nights, even four games in five nights. Despite the NBA's efforts to spread out games throughout the season, some teams still get this tough schedule as many as five times a season.

Teams on the tail end of a long and tedious road trip may not perform well, affecting the game's Over / Under and outright result.

6. Study The Trick Of The Trade

Trades and free agent signings are part of professional basketball and professional sport for that matter. Yet, many players still part with their team with animosity. Look for players who have an axe to grind against their former team and are out for a breakout game.

Consider Dwayne Wade's first game against the Miami Heat after he got traded to the Chicago Bulls. He may have scored only 13 points, but his key plays propelled the Bulls for the 98-95 win.

Or Derrick Rose's double-double performance against the Bulls after he was sent to the New York Knicks. Rose's stat for the night – 15 points, 7 rebounds and 11 assists for a 117 – 104 Knicks win.

Even Kevin Durant lit up the Thunder for 40 points and 12 rebounds in his first game against his former team after moving from Oklahoma to Golden State.

7. Look For Meaningful (or Meaningless) Games

Games, especially towards the end of the regular season, can be meaningful to some teams, while meaningless to others. Teams which have locked up their playoff position may opt to rest their star players. Meanwhile, other teams who have yet to secure their post season spots will go all out.

There's good value in rooting for teams who will fight tooth and nail for your hard earned bankroll.

8. Steaks On Streaks

As the long basketball season progresses, some teams will find their groove and win consecutively. The 1971–72 LA Lakers holds the longest winning streak in the NBA at 33 games. Meanwhile, the lowly 2017 Heat surprisingly won 13 straight games after the all-star break (they would go on to win 23 of their next 28 games). Continuing a winning streak certainly adds to player motivation, but try to stay away from overwhelmingly favorite teams, even if they are on a streak. Odds makers usually add a premium to teams on a winning streak.

On the other hand, some rebuilding teams may purposely choose to lose (tank) games in an effort to have better chances at getting a higher lottery pick, which makes picking the money line as easy as picking a cherry.

9. Bet Selectively

There are literally thousands of basketball games out there and you don't have to bet on all of them. Just bet the ones that you think have value – underdog home teams, teams going up against opponents on a long road trip, teams with unavailable players, etc.

10. Discipline Is Key

Successful basketball teams are often disciplined basketball teams. Disciplined in running their offense and disciplined in imposing their defense. As a bettor, you should have a disciplined approach too.

Just by flipping a coin, you will be right 50% of the time. At odds of 1.91, only 52.38% of your bets have to win for you to overcome the bookmaker's profit and break even. You only need a very small edge to become a winner.

Winning 55% of your wagers is definitely achievable and a 60-65% winning percentage is a realistic target. At those levels, you will have an extremely profitable and enjoyable hobby.
