NBA Scores

The NBA tips off with the preseason in early October and while bettors don’t invest much action into the preseason, the NBA Scoreboard always shows the outcomes with betting odds. The regular season begins in the middle of October and finishes in early April. The NBA Playoffs follow and conclude with the championship in June or what’s known as the NBA Finals. All of your NBA bets can be followed on the VegasInsider.com NBA Scoreboard and they’re simple to follow once you figure out the format for the Scores. The NBA Scores start with the Matchup, which has a designated home and away team.

All Games are listed in order of Rotation that are set by the sportsbooks. The Rotation numbers are assigned to each team and it identifies the bet that is being placed at an online sportsbook or in a casino. Those numbers eliminate any confusion between the bettor and the sportsbook. Along with rotation numbers, games are also listed by time and the VegasInsider.com NBA Scores show the Game Time in Eastern Standard Time Zone (ET).

Next to the rotations are the Teams that are playing, followed by the Betting Odds. The NBA Scores uses a consensus line that is created by multiple sportsbooks in the United States. The Betting Odds display which team is the favorite in the matchup and that can be determined with a minus (-) sign followed by a number.

The NBA Scores section features Betting Trends for each matchup and this shows you how much money is being wagered on each team. It’s a great tool if you want to ride or against the betting public. Other great resources on the Scoreboard are the Line Movements and Preview for each matchup. Knowing how a sportsbook adjusts to the action is great plus the Preview offers a quick synopsis of each team’s locker room. If you are in a state where sports betting is legal, please check out our online sportsbook directory to find the best and most secure places to make bets on today's NBA games.

NBA Results & Records

The team that’s favored in each matchup is determined by the sportsbooks and their oddsmakers. The team with the better record isn’t always listed as the favorite but that’s known to be a very good starting point. The NBA Scoreboard shows records for all teams in their matchups and they’re divided into two categories.

(Overall Record)
(Away or Home Record)

The Win-Loss is broken up by overall record and either the away or home record, depending on who is the host or the visitor.

The NBA Results on the Scoreboard help bettors determine whether they won or lost their wagers on the point-spread. The winning team is designated with a ‘red check’ and the ATS section determines the betting outcome. ATS or Against the Spread is a common term in the sports betting industry and those results are key for bettors. Along with showing the winner, the ATS Results section listed the word “Cover” next to the team that won against the spread. Since the point-spread is in play, the winning team with the red check may not also receive the Cover result.

For Total bettors, it’s clear-cut and those wagers are identified as Over or Under. Plus, the NBA Results show the combined points scored so you don’t have to do the math in your head.

NBA Livescores

Placing wagers on the professional teams in the NBA is one thing but following all four quarters of the action in the Livescores is even better. The VegasInsider.com NBA scoreboard shows real-time results as the games get underway. You’ll see how much time is left in each quarter. If a game is tied at the end of regulation, the overtime follows and that’s updated in the Livescores as well.

You won’t win or lose your wager until you see Final Score posted and that’s when you keep your eyes peeled for the Red Check and ATS results for each matchup. If you’re unsure of how you won or last, the Livescores populates a Recap link and that insight can help your sports betting techniques improve in the long run.
