There are many different types of basketball betting. The most commonly used are:


  • Line Betting or Moneyline is when you have to decide on who will win the game, and it must not end in a draw.
  • Point Spread Betting is when a handicap is imposed on one of the teams, which are often the favourites, to make both of them equal in terms of sports betting.
  • Over or Under Betting is when a punter must bet on whether a match will finish above or below an already set of points. But the total of points can also vary depending on the game.
