What is NBA Proposition?

Betting with NBA propositions is the same with other markets with propositions. In case you don’t know what proposition market does, it’s when you make a proposal and you’ll earn money if your proposal is what happened, hence the name.

You can say the NBA proposition is mostly over/under. There are types of NBA prop, the team and player propositions. For example with a player prop, you can say a player will score a number of rebounds, points, and assists. For the team, you can make a prop of which team will score first. Learn more about them below. Let’s start with player props.

There are many versions of NBA proposition being introduced and you can expect there will be more than two categories in the future, the NBA draft for example.

NBA Player Props

With NBA player prop bets, it mainly focuses on the individual performances of each player. This category of NBA prop relies mostly on over and under. For instance, you can bet on LeBron James’ total number of points. You can bet if either he’ll get over 30 points, for example, or under 30 points.

The oddsmakers are the ones drawing the line where you should bet on, in this case, 30 points. You’ll win if you bet under 30 points and LeBron got 24 points only, and you’ll lose if he made 40 points or so.

This is the main basis of every NBA player prop and you’ll have to do research on each player in order for you to maximize your odds. You can check if they have injuries for example or any issues regarding their health.

It doesn’t have to be points only though. You can bet on the number of rebounds, assists, or turnovers too.

NBA Team Props

Thus, it’s simpler than that of NBA player props. You can also bet whether which of the team will get 10 points first, 20 points, and so on.

You just have to choose which one will achieve the odds line that the oddsmakers give you and if the outcome aligns to your prediction, then you’ll win your wager.
