NBA (National Basketball Association) Over Under Bet

Basketball over under bets center around National Basketball Association (NBA) games. The NBA is widely considered as the best basketball league in the world. It currently has 30 teams - 29 in the United States and 1 in Canada.

The NBA was founded as the Basketball Association of America (BAA) in New York City on June 6, 1946. The league adopted the name National Basketball Association on August 3, 1949, after merging with its rival National Basketball League (NBL).

NBA teams are divided into two conferences - Eastern and Western. Each conference is subdivided in to three divisions – Atlantic, Central and Southeast under the Eastern Conference; Northwest, Pacific and Southwest under the Western Conference.

The NBA season begin in late September with each team opening their training camps. After training camp, a series of preseason exhibition games are held. Preseason matches are also held in non-NBA cities, both in the United States and other parts of the globe. The NBA regular season tips off in the last week of October.

Each NBA team plays a total of 82 games (41 each home and away) during the regular season. The NBA is the only league that regularly schedules games on Christmas Day. This tradition was started in 1947 but was only televised in 1983. Christmas Day NBA games usually feature marquee matchups.

The league pauses for its annual All-Star festivities in February.

NBA Playoffs begin in late April, with eight teams in each conference competing for the playoffs. The three division winners, along with the team with the next best record from the conference are given the top four seeds. The next four teams in terms of record are given the lower four seeds.

The playoffs follow a tournament format. Each team plays an opponent in a best-of-seven series, with the first team to win four games advancing into the next round, while the other team is eliminated from the playoffs.

The conference champions then face each other for the NBA Finals, usually held in June. The winner is crowned as the World Champion and awarded the Larry O'Brien Trophy.

An NBA over under bet looks like:

Golden State Warriors Over 226 -110
Cleveland Cavaliers Under 226 -110

In the example above, betting $110 on "Over 226" points wins you $100 if the game's total score reaches 227 or higher. Meanwhile, betting $110 on "Under 226" points wins you $100 if the game's total score is 225 or lower.

If in case the games ends with a total of 226 points, the bookmaker will declare it a push (tie), and all bets are returned. The winner of the game is irrelevant to the outcome of the over under bet. All that matters is the score.
