NBA team and player props

The table below will let you sort through American odds for many props involving NBA players and teams. In addition to season-long futures, bettors can also look at game-specific props. This includes player production, such as the number of points or rebounds a player may tally, or team props like total points or which team will score the first basket. Use the board below to review props at top legal sportsbooks.

NBA win totals

You can also wager on a team’s total wins over the course of the 82-game NBA regular season. This bet usually does not include wins in the playoffs. A sportsbook will provide a specific number of wins a team may have (for example, 50.5). You can then bet whether that team will have more or fewer wins than that mark.

In another version of this bet, a sportsbook may also offer a bet on whether any team in the league will exceed a certain number of wins (65.5, for instance). The record for most wins in an NBA season is 73 by the 2015-16 Golden State Warriors. Only 17 teams in NBA history have had more than 65 wins in a season.

NBA conference odds

The NBA consists of two conferences with three divisions in each conference. There are 15 teams in each conference and five in each division. You can bet on which team will win each division and each conference. To win an NBA conference bet, you must correctly identify the team to represent its respective conference in the NBA Finals. Here are the odds for each conference.

NBA Eastern Conference odds

It’s down to the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference finals, with the Heat up three games to two in the best-of-seven series.

NBA Western Conference odds

The Denver Nuggets, one of the favorites for much of the season in the Western Conference, advanced to the NBA Finals with a series win over the Los Angeles Lakers. Odds on who will win the Western Conference in 2023-24 will be available at a later date.

To make the playoffs

When betting on whether a team will make the playoffs, you’re looking at a yes-or-no proposition. As the season progresses, many books will begin to offer “no” as the only option. It becomes clearer which teams will or will not make it to the postseason. Many teams will not be available as an option later in the season.

To make the play-in tournament

Betting on who participates in the play-in tournament is more specific than just making the playoffs. Some teams might not be available in a “to make the playoffs” bet with their spot all but assured. They might still be available in a “to participate in the play-in tournament” bet with the seeding undetermined. 

Types of NBA bets

Moneyline: One of the most popular bets in all sports, this is simply a bet on which team will win the game. The final score does not matter for this bet as long as you select the winning side. 

Spread: The point spread is a set number of points the oddsmaker uses to make the game more even to wager on. The favorite will have a negative number (Raptors -3.5, for example). The underdog will have a positive number (Celtics +3.5). If you bet on the favorite, that team must win by at least the number of points. If you bet on the underdog, that team must not lose by more points than it’s given. You would also win the bet if the underdog wins outright.  

Total: Another common bet, this wager allows you to bet on the total number of points in a game. The sportsbook will set the total, and you can select if the combined score will be over or under. If the total is 220.5 and select over, you would win if both teams score 221 combined points or more.

Halftime/full-time: This type of bet combines a wager on which team will be leading the game at halftime and which team will win the game into the same bet. For example, in a game between the Toronto Raptors and Boston Celtics, you could bet on Raptors (halftime)/Celtics (full time), tie (halftime)/Celtics (full time) or any of the other four possible outcomes. There are always six possible outcomes to this bet. 

Team total: This is a bet on a team’s individual score in a given game. Similar to a bet on the game total, you select whether the team’s total points will be over or under the sportsbook’s line.

Player props (points, rebounds, assists, etc.): Player props are bets on an individual player’s stats in a game. In the NBA, this can include total points, rebounds, assists, 3-pointers, and several other options. Sportsbooks provide a total (LeBron James, 24.5 points) and you can wager on it being over or under that amount.

What are the most popular types of NBA bets?

Point spreads, totals, player props, and futures are some of the most popular NBA bets. 

Can I place a same-game parlay on an NBA game?

Yes, many sportsbooks that offer SGPs will feature them for most NBA games. Depending on the sportsbook you choose, you may also see this bet appear as a single-game parlay or one-game parlay.

How do odds work in NBA betting?

The simple way to understand odds is that a positive number indicates an underdog, and a negative number indicates a favorite. The higher the number next to the plus, the bigger the underdog, and vice-versa. A $100 bet on a +250 underdog would win $250 in addition to the return of your original stake. But if you were betting on a -250 favorite, a bet of $250 would win $100 plus original stake.

Where can I bet on the NBA?

You can bet on the NBA in any state where sports betting is legal.

How do NBA futures work?

NBA futures are bets on a future event or outcome. An example of an NBA future would be betting on which team you think will win the NBA Finals. Other futures could include bets such as who will win next season’s NBA MVP.
