The Best NBA Bet
With the 2020-21 NBA season now in its second half, bettors continue to try and find the best NBA bet. Finding it can be tricky, but it’s the pursuit of that best bet that keeps smarter bettors going.
NFL Hall of Fame LB Lawrence Taylor once said that if he ever played the perfect game he would retire the next day. There would be nothing more he could strive for.
If bettors make the best NBA bet, it’s doubtful they will stop betting but what exactly is the best NBA bet?
Every bettor is different. Every betting strategy is different. When it comes to NBA betting, the best NBA bet is the one you feel most comfortable with.
If you simply like to pick winners, you bet on the moneyline. You do it wisely though and look for prime upset opportunities in addition to sure bets on favorites.
If you’re betting this season on teams that will earn you profits more times than not, you might be backing Phoenix or Utah against the spread. The Suns have the NBA’s best record ATS at 25-12 and the Jazz aren’t far behind at 25-13.

Many NBA bettors like wagering on game totals. You don’t necessarily have to be looking for the best teams, just the ones like New Orleans or Sacramento that score a lot of points. Both the Pelicans and Kings have losing overall records, but the total in Pelicans games has gone Over in 28 of 39 games. The Over is 25-13 in Kings games.
On the other end, you might try to wager on Lakers games. Los Angeles is one of the top defensive teams in the league and the Under is 24-14 for the Lakers.
There are also a number of proposition bets and a large array of futures bets you can make on the NBA. The point is that the best bet is one that fits each individual betting style. What works for one might not work for someone else.

Your New Best NBA Bet
For NBA bettors that may not have found that “best bet” yet, you might want to consider this second-half-of-the-season strategy. With the number of back-to-back games that teams will play this season, there are going to be nights where teams rest their stars. That will allow bettors to do something called “middling”.
Here’s how it works. You have already placed a wager on a game. Let’s say it’s the Lakers -5 against Dallas. You get an alert that both Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis will sit out the game for the Mavericks.
The action starts flying in on the Lakers. The books respond by pushing the line all the way up to Lakers -10. In this case, you want to wager on Dallas at +10. Here’s why.
One of the two bets is a winner, but you can actually win on both of them in certain instances. You would win both bets if the Lakers won by 6, 7, 8, or 9.
It takes some work, but “middling” properly could be your new best NBA bet.
