What In-Play Markets are Available?

Basketball games can change over the course of a minute and a few quick scores and turn overs can have a huge impact on the betting markets. A number of different in-play markets are available – the most popular are listed below:

To win the match

This is the basic market on who will win the game and this market turns in-play as soon as the game begins. This is the easiest way to place a bet and you can keep checking the market to see how it fluctuates depending on who is winning the game at that time.

Handicap betting

The handicap betting market is a way for bookmakers to keep a game level, even if it’s a very one-sided affair. If a team has a ten point lead in a game, it can still be interesting because of the handicap line. If one team is +15 points in the handicap but only 10 points up in the game they still need 5 more to secure the handicap win. Although the game has a wide margin, from a betting perspective it is close, which is the aim of any handicap.

To win the quarter

If you want to place a bet on a small part of a basketball game then you can back a team to win the quarter. This can be momentum based and odds will often reflect this more so than the overall match winner however the two markets are usually quite well aligned price wise.

Race to 20/40 points

In this market you are betting on which team will reach 20 or 40 points first, depending on the market you choose. You’ll see the odds swing back and forth with momentum in the match but the favourite to win usually starts this market at the favourite to make the points totals first.

Winning margin

Here you are betting on what team will win the game, and by how many points. To start with the game you’ll have many different brackets available to bet on but as the game comes to an end and the options are are limited as it becomes more clear which way the match might go.

Will there be overtime?

This is a unique market and one to get involved with towards the end of the game. If the game you are watching looks close and you are struggling to split the teams then you can place a bet on whether or not there will be overtime in the game. You’ll get longer odds on this the earlier into the game it is.
