It's not always a good idea to increase the size
of your bet if you feel particularly strong about a teams chance
of winning, however there are some very good times to make a big bet.
The NBA Playoffs provides
plenty of opportunities to make big bets, one of my favourite bet large situations is on a
team that is playing at home after losing their first 2 games of the series on the road, in
this situation you are virtually guaranteed that the home team will
put up the effort of their life. The key here is that we are betting with the edge
and all the numbers are on our side
Another good spot to make a large bet
is in the NBA Finals, we bet on the home team, besides the customary home
court advantage, we get the added edge of having an Eastern team playing a Western team and vice versa,
home teams playing opposition from other time zones have an
even greater edge at home in these matchups.
During the regular season you should pick your spots
carefully to increase your bet size, key on situations where your
team has a decided advantage over their opponent, for example, Indiana(average team) is playing at home against
San Antonio(above average team), Indiana is well rested, San
Antonio played a tough game on the road the previous night, the line on the game
is a pickem or even. A lot of people would bet San Antonio in this game, the reason is that they know
San Antonio is the better team and the line is a straight up
pickem, so it is very tempting, but the right play to make in this situation is to take
Indiana, they have the advantage, go with the flow and capitalize on the other gamblers falling
asleep at the wheel.
If you're looking at placing a futures bet on a team, always bet them
after they lose a game, never bet them while they are on a winning
streak, if you use a place like Betfair or Mansion, you can buy them high and sell them low, turning a quick
buck in the process, NBA Basketball gets a lot of action.
can take advantage of good futures odds in the playoffs, if the team you like starts a series on the road and lose
their first 2 road games in the series(which is often the case), that
is the time to make your futures bet, realistically, if your
team is decent they will win their next 2 games at home and tie up the series, at that point anything can happen,
and your team will have a bit of momentum going as well.
making bets on the futures market, remember to be patient and never panic.
