This might be the most important feature of the FTNBets NBA Player Prop tool. Seeing past results/statistics from a respective player and the closing betting line for those props is essential to projecting how a player will fare in his upcoming matchup.
For example, if Los Angeles Lakers center Anthony Davis hasn’t attempted a three-point shot in his last five games but for his upcoming matchup vs the Clippers, sportsbooks have his O/U three-pointers made at 1.5, that should raise some red flags. Using this tool will enable you to spot the statistical outliers and assist you in your betting research and handicapping.
“Prop Type” allows an FTNBets user to navigate between all the different player prop offerings for each respective player. For any given NBA game, sportsbooks can offer at least 20 different O/U player prop markets to bet on. In the NBA, points scored, assists, rebounds and three-pointers are typically the most bet on at sportsbooks.
Understanding NBA Player Prop Odds
In order to bet on NBA player prop odds, you first need to understand what the betting odds are and lines mean. The numbers listed beside each player can be overwhelming to comprehend for novice bettors so FTNBets will help you understand these betting lines and how they’re compiled. This will enable you to utilize and take advantage of FTNBets Player Prop tool.
Let’s use the NBA as a case study. Every day during the NBA season, sportsbooks will use recent data to generate a potential statistical outcome for every player. The data that can impact these odds could be recent play, upcoming matchup, injuries, lineup rotations and statistical trends.
With centers, the most common O/U player prop is rebounds. For point guards, it’s assists. For perimeter shooters, it’s three-point props. Oddsmakers have a variety of statistics and data to harvest in an attempt to generate a betting line that’s as close to a 50-50 decision for the bettor. The decision for the bettor is whether the player will go OVER or UNDER the respective statistic.
As you can see, sportsbooks have close to similar rebounding numbers yards lines across the board. Davis’s O/U rebounds is 9.5 and with the FTNBets NBA Player Prop tool, you can determine which sportsbook currently is offering the best odds to bet on.
Let’s say you wanted to take the OVER for this prop and you have a DraftKings sportsbook account along with a FanDuel sportsbook account. When looking at the FTNBets NBA Player Prop tool, you can see that DraftKings is providing -105 odds for the OVER instead of -115 at FanDuel. This enables you to compare odds and get the best possible value for your wager.
Shopping around for betting lines is essential for long-term success and profitability. If you prefer just dive into every O/U NBA player prop for a specific player, make sure to use the FTNBets Prop Shop to speed up the researching process.
What does -110 odds mean in sports betting?
-110 odds is a common betting line for sports betting and is mainly found with game spreads and totals. It’s also used quite frequently for NBA O/U player props.
In order to wager on NBA player props, bettors need to understand what the odds mean beside each betting option. For most O/U props, sportsbooks like to use -110 odds on either side. These are American odds and any number with a minus sign (-) in front of it implies what you’d have to wager in order to win $100 in profit. For -110 odds, a bettor would need to wager $110 to win $100 in profits.
Let’s say you’re considering Anthony Davis O/U rebounds prop at 9.5 yards. Sportsbooks have listed the O/U odds at -110 on each side as oddsmakers have determined this yardage marker is the closest to a 50-50 bet on each side. Sportsbooks list it at -110 instead of +100 because they take a minor fee from each bet wagered, which is also known as “vig”. Don’t be alarmed. This is a very common occurrence by sportsbooks.
If you think Davis will get 10 rebounds or more and you decide to bet $110 on the OVER at -110, you’d get $210 returned to your sportsbook betting account - your $110 original bet is returned along with $100 reward for making the correct pick.
NBA Player Prop Odds
NBA props, or propositions, are the latest craze in sports betting as they are considered a “game within a game” and don’t necessarily impact the final result. Some of the most popular betting props are for individual players and usually are statistical in nature, like how many three-pointers an NBA player will hit or how many assists a point guard will have by the end of the game. Similar to totals, bettors can wager on these props with an OVER or UNDER option.
This is just the tip of the iceberg for NBA player prop odds and we’d recommend to check out the "Prop Shop" with FTNBets to see all the different markets available for key players. Another added bonus of the Prop Shop is it also offers an odds comparison tool to see which sportsbooks are offering better odds for a certain prop. It’s imperative for bettors to shop around and get the best value when betting on the NBA.
