Whether you’re looking for point spreads, totals, moneylines, quarter and halftime lines, player and team props, or division, conference and NBA Finals futures, FOX Bet is the place to be for online basketball betting.

NBA betting is available all season long, starting with the preseason and 82-game regular season in October and continuing throughout the postseason all the way to the NBA Finals in June. Advanced statistics and betting trends are always available at your fingertips when using FOX Bet, giving you the analysis you need.

There are dozens of different wagers you can make prior to the start of each game. They include (but are not necessarily limited to):

  • a straight-up winner (the moneyline)
  • a side to win against a point spread
  • over or under the total number of points that will be scored in the game (by both teams or by either team)
  • a side to win against a first-quarter point spread
  • a side to win against a first-half point spread
  • any one of a number of game-related props.

A point spread represents a number set by oddsmakers to provide a numerical advantage or disadvantage based on the margin of victory or defeat for a given team. The team that is considered the “favorite” (noted with a “-” sign preceding the number) would need to win the game by a certain number of points while the team that is considered the “underdog” (noted with a “+” sign preceding the number) is given a margin by which the team can lose the game but still “cover” the point spread.

To use an example, if the line is Warriors (-3) vs. Raptors (+3): a winning against-the-spread wager on the Warriors would require Golden State to win by more than 3 points. The Raptors are the winning wager in this scenario if the team either wins outright or loses the game by 1 or 2 points. If the Warriors win by exactly 3 points, the game is considered a “push” and bettors on both sides of the spread get their wagers refunded.
