Spread betting is the most popular way to wager on basketball. The NBA point spread is an equalizer, using the projected final margin between two teams to set a handicap. The point spread favorite is indicated by the minus (-) before the spread and must win by more than that amount of points to win the spread bet. The underdog has a plus (+) before the spread and must either win outright or lose by fewer points than given in order to win the bet.
Check out today’s NBA spreads and compare them across the top sportsbooks in the industry by selecting the spreads button above the odds. You can also learn more about point spread betting by reading our point spread betting guide.
The Over/Under — also known as the total — is a great betting option when you don’t have an opinion on which team will win. Oddsmakers set a projected total number of points scored by both sides and you can wager on whether the final score will go Over or Under that total.
We have all of today’s NBA Over/Under totals available by clicking the totals button above the odds. And if you’re interested in learning more about totals, check out our Over/Under betting guide.
NBA moneylines are the most straightforward basketball bet you can make: Simply pick which team will win. The moneyline favorite will have a minus (-) before the odds while the underdog will be indicated by a plus (+). Figure out how much money you can win with your NBA moneyline bets using our odds calculator.

NBA opening lines
NBA opening lines are the original set of spreads, moneylines, and Over/Under totals posted by sportsbooks. These lines will move and be adjusted over the course of the day. You can find the NBA opening lines on the left-hand column and compare those against the current live NBA odds to see which lines have changed the most since opening.
NBA 2nd-half lines
NBA second-half lines are posted at the halftime break of games and are point spreads, moneylines and Over/Under totals graded solely on the second-half result. Second-half lines are a great way to bet against any anomalies in the first half, such as a big favorite falling behind on the scoreboard or high-scoring teams failing to produce points. Often those surprise results will correct themselves in the second half and open betting value in the NBA second-half odds.
You can switch the odds table above to second-half lines from Odds Settings.
NBA futures are odds on long-term markets, such as odds to win the NBA Championship or which teams will win the Eastern and Western Conference. Futures odds often open before the start of the schedule and bets are accepted until the end of the season, constantly changing during that span based on results, injuries, and betting action.
