2012-13 NBA Season Finally Gets Underway

by Renee Israel

Atlanta Hawks To Host Miami Heat

The 2012-13 NBA season has just kicked off so is still too early for the Conference tables to take shape, but in the end every match counts. Though the NBA is a basketball tournament played between American teams it has a global fan following. Online betting sites in the United Kingdom post odds for a number of NBA markets.

Online Betting On NBA Fixtures

Online betting sites offer a number of markets on the NBA games. The odds for the individual fixtures are not posted well in advance and therefore punters have to place their bets fairly close to the match. Odds are posted for match results, scores at half time and even scores at the quarters.

Most online sports books offer a number of prop bets like player performances, double bets and highest scoring quarter. Basketball games are suited to in-play betting and the more popular betting sites like Bet365 online offer this market.

Odds have been posted for Conference winners and outright winner of the 2012-13 NBA season. Though these will be decided only well into 2013, there is steady betting on these markets. With the choices more open at this stage, the odds offered are more favourable and hence it is an opportune time to place a bet on a team that you will back in any event.

Even at this stage Miami Heat is so strong a favourite to win the NBA Eastern Conference that it has far less than even money odds. The odds for this market at Bet365 online are as follows.

2012-13 NBA Eastern Conference Odds

Miami Heat 10/19

Chicago Bulls 15/2

Boston Celtics 17/2

2012-13 NBA Western Conference Odds

The competition is more open in the Western Conference. Bet365 online has posted the following odds for the winners.

Los Angeles Lakers 6/4

Oklahoma City Thunder 2/1

San Antonio Spurs 6/1

Interesting Upcoming NBA Fixtures

On Friday November 9 at 7.30 PM EST, the New York Knicks will host the Dallas Mavericks. These are not the top teams in the larger context of the NBA, but are evenly balanced and therefore should provide an exciting contest. Dallas has played four games so far and has won three of them. New York has won all three games played.

Players interested in following a top team can turn to the match between Miami Heat and Atlanta Hawks at Atlanta also on Friday November 9 at 7.30 PM EST. This is likely to be one-sided in favour of Miami, given the relative strengths of the two teams.

Story Highlights »
  • Miami Heat is the strongest contender for winning the NBA.
  • It will face some challenge from Western Conference teams.
