Get the latest NBA odds and lines for each matchup on the floor tonight, find spreads, moneylines, and totals.

NBA Odds Explained

NBA odds provide bettors with a plethora of options. From standard pregame lines such as NBA spreads, moneylines, and totals to expansive prop markets and futures, the number of NBA betting lines is seemingly never-ending. 

Below, we will detail the most popular NBA betting odds you will typically find. 

Find the Latest NBA Odds

Winners and Whiners is your home for expert NBA predictions. You can find the latest NBA lines here, with up-to-the-minute odds for multiple bet types.  

Find the best available NBA lines by comparing offerings across multiple online sportsbooks. You can also find NBA betting lines on betting apps, with well-marked tabs on the homepage. 

NBA Point Spread Odds

NBA point spreads are among the first you will find for a given matchup. A point spread is a line set by sportsbooks to get equal betting action on each side. 

For example, you might see the following betting line for an NBA game: 

  • Boston Celtics -7.5
  • Indiana Pacers +7.5

In this case, the Celtics (-7.5) represent the favorites, while the Pacers (+7.5) are the underdogs. If you bet on the Celtics at these odds, they would need to win by eight or more points for your bet to win. If you bet on the Pacers, they would either need to win the game or lose by 7 points or fewer for your bet to cash. 

NBA Moneyline Odds

If you don’t want to bother with the spread, you can also wager on NBA moneylines and select the team you think will win the game. 

Moneyline odds are weighted based on the perceived imbalance between the two teams. For instance, you could see an NBA betting line like this:

  • Phoenix Suns ML: -200
  • Memphis Grizzlies ML: +150

A $100 moneyline bet on the favored Suns would return you $50 in profits. A $100 bet on the underdog Grizzlies would return $150 in gains. 

NBA Point Total Odds

Another popular NBA betting line is a bet on how many points the two teams will combine to score. NBA totals don’t involve picking the winners or betting against a spread. Instead, you bet on how many points will be scored in the game by betting “over” or “under” a set line. 

You might see NBA over/under odds set at 217.5. A bet on the over means the two teams must combine for 218 or more. A bet on the under means 217 points or less must be scored for your bet to win. 

NBA Game/Player Prop Odds

As mentioned above, you will find dozens of NBA betting lines for any matchup throughout the season. NBA prop bets allow you to place side wagers on a game that are not necessarily tied to the overall outcome. 

NBA player props are tied to individual performances and milestones. For example, you can bet on over/unders for total points scored, rebounds, assists, and steals. 

NBA game props involve wagers on in-game events. These could include the number of slam dunks, three-pointers, or the first team to score 15+ points. 

Odds for NBA Futures 

NBA futures are an additional way to bet on basketball. Rather than selecting odds on a specific game, these are bets on long-term outcomes. 

Similar to NBA props, these can be tied to team or individual players. Some popular NBA futures include

  • Odds to Win the NBA Finals
  • NBA MVP odds
  • Odds to Win the Eastern/Western Conferences
  • Divisional Odds
  • Rookie of the Year odds
  • Defensive Player of the Year Odds

Because it is more difficult to project full-season outcomes, NBA futures generally have far more favorable odds that might return anywhere from 5-20x your initial wager.
