NBA Sharp Picks

An NBA "sharp pick" refers to a betting selection made by experienced, professional bettors, often called "sharps"." These individuals have a deep understanding of the game, access to extensive data, and the ability to analyze and interpret trends and statistics. They are known for making well-informed, strategic bets that often go against public opinion or popular sentiment.

When a sharp bettor identifies a potential edge or opportunity in an NBA game's betting lines or odds, they place their bets accordingly. A sharp pick is a result of their analysis and expertise

With a BetQL subscription you can follow along with the sharps and bet right along with them. For every game on the slate we have public and sharp money available. Tail the sharp picks or fade the publc, no matter how you like to bet, BetQL has the data for you

How do NBA Picks Against the Spread Work?

NBA picks against the spread, also known as point spread betting or simply "spread" betting, is a popular form of wagering on basketball games. The purpose of the point spread is to level the playing field between two teams, making the game more interesting and competitive for bettors.

In this betting format, oddsmakers assign a point spread or handicap to the game's favorite, which is expected to win, and the underdog, which is expected to lose. The favorite is denoted by a minus sign (-) and the underdog by a plus sign (+).

For example, if the Boston Celtics are favored by 5.5 points against the New York Knicks, the spread would look like this:

Boston Celtics -5.5 New York Knicks +5.5

If you bet on the Celtics, they must win the game by more than 5.5 points (6 points or more) for your bet to be successful. If the Celtics win by exactly 5 points or fewer, or if the Knicks win the game, your bet on the Celtics would be a loss.

On the other hand, if you bet on the Knicks, they must either win the game outright or lose by 5 points or fewer for your bet to be a winner. If the Knicks lose by exactly 5.5 points, your bet would be a loss.
