Eastern Conference Betting for Australians
The NBA Eastern Conference is made up of 15 teams, which are organised into 3 divisions of 5 teams. The 3 division winners, along with the non-division winner with the best record are seeded 1 through 4 for the playoffs in order of their records, with all the remaining non-division winners seeded 5 through 8. This means that there is a possibility that a number 2 or 3 seed could be a non-division winner. In a playoff series, home-court advantage is not decided by seeding but by record, so if the number 4 and number 5 meet in a playoff series in which the number 5 team has a better record, the number 5 team would have home-court advantage.
One of the most popular bets placed on the Eastern Conference is the Moneyline bet, this is a simple win/lose bet in which punters bet on a team to win the game. Handicap betting is particularly helpful to punters when one team is the favourite by a big margin. The bookmaker will offer a handicap to level the playing field, a handicap number is displayed as either a + or a – on the bookmakers site. Because of the adjustment made by the online bookmaker, the actual result will sometimes differ from the handicap for the purposes of betting. Total betting is a bet in which the punter predicts whether or not the combined points scored in a game will be more or less than a set number.
Some of the more advanced bets available are Half and Quarter bets in which the punter can bet on the result after a quarter or halfway through a game. Games consist of 4 periods and 2 halves and bets can be placed on any of these. Often the team that wins the game will not each quarter, this gives punters the opportunity to use their knowledge and experience to make winning bets. Parlay or Accumulator bets allow the punter to place across multiple games. In order to win the punter must predict all selections correctly.
The more games punters select, the more likely it is that they will win. In futures betting the punter has the opportunity to bet on the performance of a team at the beginning of the playoffs. This is a popular bet to make in Eastern Conference betting and offers punters great value as the betting odds will change throughout the playoffs. In proposition basketball betting punters can place bets on a player’s performance, in either a single game or during the entire playoffs. These bets are based on all the aspects of an individual’s performance such as points scored, assists, rebounds and other statistics.
