VegasInsider NBA Pick Packages

Our NBA expert handicappers offer Daily, Guaranteed, Weekly, Monthly, 1st Half Season, 2nd Half Season and Postseason pick packages. Each handicapper is sold separately and the number of picks varies for one to another. Some of the experts are very selective, only posting one pick per day which caters to the low volume bettors who manage their bankroll very carefully. There are also a handful of high volume experts who will post double digit picks per day providing value in terms of cost per pick. We require all handicappers to submit a minimum of 50-word analysis with each of their expert picks. Packages may contain any combination of picks including ATS, moneylines and totals. By clicking on an expert above you can view the matchups that are available in their pick package.

How Do NBA Against-the-Spread (ATS) Picks Work?

The point-spread was developed to provide a balance for both teams involved in a contest to entice bettors to potentially back the weaker team and receive points. The two squads in a game are listed with a title, either a favorite or an underdog. The favorite is usually the perceived better team in the game, as backing them means giving up several points. For example, if Los Angeles is listed as a seven-point favorite (-7) over Orlando, backing Los Angeles would mean they need to win by at least eight points to win the bet. Any victory by six points or less by Los Angeles would result in a loss, even though they won the game straight-up and a win for Orlando.If the game falls on seven, a ‘push’ occurs, which is a tie, meaning all tickets are refunded.

How Do NBA Moneyline Picks Work?

There is money-line betting in basketball in case you don’t want to worry about the points. However, the odds or amount you would have to risk is adjusted accordingly for both the favorite and underdog. If you wanted to back Los Angeles (a five-point favorite) but only needed them to win straight-up, you would need to wager $250 to win $100. On the flip side, if you have enough faith in Orlando to beat Los Angeles outright as a five-point ‘dog, you can place $100 to win $180. There is a sliding scale on the money-line/point-spread correlation, with the favorite numbers rising relative to how many points they lay. A three-point favorite to win outright is just -160 (Lay $160 to win $100), while a seven-point favorite is a chalkier bet at -320 (Lay $320 to win $100).

How Do NBA Total (Over/Under) Picks Work?

Another option to bet on basketball instead of taking a side is to bet on the total. Basically, this is a cooperative effort between the two teams to either go ‘Over’ or ‘Under’ the posted total. In basketball, if Los Angeles and Orlando have a game total of 205 ½, a winning ‘Over’ bet would mean the two clubs would combine for 206 points or more. On the flip side, a winning ‘Under’ ticket is 205 points or fewer between the two teams.
