All throughout the season, there are some of the most exciting NBA games and tournaments to bet on. Aside from the regular season games, in April you can start looking for winning NBA picks on the playoff games – and then, in July there’s the long-awaited and hotly anticipated NBA finals – which in 2021 saw the Milwaukee Bucks take on the Phoenix Suns – the best of the East and West.
However, every single game in the season offers excitement and fun, with plenty of betting opportunities – some with value NBA odds and some with not so great value odds.
Check out our NBA picks and predictions for today so that you can get hold of the best value betting odds for whatever NBA game you are looking to bet on.
NBA Basketball Schedule
NBA bettors will look every year to see the dates and the rules for the upcoming NBA season. In the last few seasons, things haven’t always been straightforward. Firstly there was the Covid stricken 2019/20 season, that saw the Los Angeles Lakers taking the champions in the fall. Then, in the 2020/21 NBA season, the Phoenix Suns fought for the title against the Milwaukee Bucks – trying to take the title back to the Phoenix Suns Arena – with the final, pivotal game taking place on Thursday 22nd July. Next season who knows? Can the Boston Celtics get another win? What will Atlanta Hawks have to offer?
Each year, each team will play 82 games in the sports betting season (although there were 72 games in the 2020/21 season). Some fans will watch for entertainment purposes, whereas others will watch with the purpose of sports betting in mind. This season, the League is looking to return to normal, – training camps starting in September, with the regular season looking to start on Tuesday, October 19.

Free Moneyline NBA Predictions
Want to place a nice simple wager? A Moneyline bet means you simply pick out the winning team. You can only really get valuable NBA odds if the teams are evenly matched. Underdogs and heavy favourites not so much. Moneyline bets are great for NBA finals because they are the two top teams – both looking for the win. Boston Celtics v LA Lakers could prove a great value Moneyline bet.
Free NBA Picks – Betting Against the Spread
If you want to bet on the favourite team winning, then try spread betting, which events up the field. If one of the NBA playoff games is mismatched then you can bet on how much the team will win by. So, you could bet on the LA Lakers beating the Golden State Warriors by more than 20 points. Simply bet on LA Lakers -20 – meaning they have to beat the Kings by over 20 points to win your bet…. this gives you much better odds and makes it much more worthwhile betting on favourites or underdogs.
