LBA (Lega Basket Serie A) Over Under Bet

The Lega Basket Serie A (LBA) (Serie A Basketball League in English) is the top professional men's basketball league in Italy. The league started in 1920 and is presently called Serie A PosteMobile for sponsorship reasons.

In LBA over under betting, you are wagering that the game's number of points would either be over or under a specified total. A LBA over under bet looks like:

Olimpia Milano Over 116 -115
Varese Under 116 -105

In the example above, betting $115 on "over 116 points" wins you $100 if the game's total points is 117 or more. Meanwhile, betting $105 on "under 116 points" wins you $100 if the game's total points is 115 or less.

If in case the game ends with a total of 116 points, the bookmaker will declare it a push (tie), and all bets are retuned.

The winner of the game is irrelevant to the outcome of the LBA over under bet. All that matters is the score.

The LBA, which is played under FIBA rules, is composed of 16 teams, with the lowest-placed team relegated to the Serie A2 (second tier league) and replaced by the winner of the playoffs of that division.

The LBA is run by Lega Basket, which is regulated by the Italian Basketball Federation.

The league follows the usual double round-robin competition format. During the course of a season, which lasts from October to May, each club plays every other club twice, once at home and once away, for a total of 30 games.

Each team receives two points for a win and no points for a loss. Teams are ranked by total points. At the end of the season, the eight best teams in the standings start a playoff, pitting the first place team in the standings versus the 8th place team in the standings, and so on.

There are three playoff rounds. The Quarterfinals are best of five, while the semifinals and finals series are best of seven (in the 2012–13 season, all series were best-of-seven). The winner of the finals round becomes the champion of the LBA.

A total of 99 teams have competed in the LBA since its inception. Seventeen teams have been crowned champions, with Olimpia Milano winning the title a record 27 times, and Virtus Bologna 15 times.

According to FIBA Europe's and Euroleague Basketball's national league coefficients, the LBA was the overall historically top ranked national domestic league in Europe, for the period 1958 to 2007.

Today, the LBA is considered to be one of the top European national basketball leagues. Its clubs have won the most EuroLeague championships (13), the most FIBA Saporta Cups (15), and the most FIBA Korac Cups (10).
