Pro Basketball Wagering - Pro Basketball BettingPro basketball wagering has been as ubiquitous as the sport by which it attaches itself. Pro basketball betting is also one of the most popular betting stakes on the internet and enjoys a lot of following in the sports gambling world. Pro basketball wagering is one of the most exciting sports betting games out there and is rarely rivaled by any other sport.
Pro basketball, particularly the United States' National Basketball Association (NBA), enjoys a very rabid following in many countries. In fact, pro basketball is one of the more popular spectator sports in the world. Fans all over the world eagerly await the start of each pro basketball season, with the 2005-06 season commencing last November 1, 2005.
Of course, with the start of the pro basketball season, people are already predicting who will win the championship. The heavy favorite at this point is the San Antonio Spurs, who were also the champions last season. San Antonio's formidable lineup, which is anchored by Tim Duncan and Tony Parker, has been further beefed up with the addition of Nick Van Exel and Michael Finley to their roster without losing a single quality free agent.

Another big favorite to win the championship are the Detroit Pistons. Detroit's amazing defensive play, which is due largely to Defensive Player of the Year Ben Wallace, is complemented well by their propensity to attack the boards, courtesy of Rasheed Wallace. The scoring trio of Tayshaun Prince, Richard Hamilton and Chauncey Billups make the Pistons a formidable team.
Of course, with the start of a new NBA season, the pro basketball betting stations are now also open for business.
Pro basketball wagering base its results, unless otherwise stipulated, on the score after 43 minutes of regulation play or at the completion of the overtime period.

A lot of online casinos and sportbooks provide point spread as well as over/under gambling. Transactions for betting are done either online or over the telephone.
In a point spread wager, the team that a bettor bets on must win by the stipulated point spread. An over/under wager, on the other hand, means the total points of the game by the two teams must fall over or under the side selected. This would include the overtime/s.
Here is an example: The posted line in an online sportsbook is Detroit Pistons -10 at New Jersey Nets +10, with the over/under total pegged at 190
The odds then are $1.10 to win $1.00 (-110).
For any bettors who would like to place their wager on the Pistons -10, the team must win by more than 10 points in order for it to become a winning wager. On the other hand, bettors who place their bets on New Jersey +10, the team must either win the game or lose by less than 10 points for it to become a winning wager. But in the event that the outcome falls on the number either way, the bet is called off - this is more popularly known as a "push", and the original stake is given back to the bettors.

Meanwhile, for players who wager on the total points generated by both teams in a given game, the combined final score of both the teams will be the basis of the betting game. Based on the example given above, an "Over" 190 means the combined score of Detroit and New Jersey must be over 190 and an "Under" means the combine score should be below 190. As it is with the spread, a score where the total falls on the number is declared a "Push", and the original stake is again refunded.
