Free Expert NBA Picks Live Here! 

Our expert hoop handicappers have their finger firmly on the NBA’s pulse, delivering freely available basketball tips for all NBA games during the regular season and playoffs. In a perfect world, that’s 2,460 games in a given season that are subject to NBA expert picks and a maximum of 210 games in the playoffs (if every series in every round went the distance). 

Free NBA Picks Against the Spread 

NBA picks ATS are amongst the most sought-after of all the types of gambling picks, especially in major American sport such as the NBA. In a league where the gap in quality, skill and talent between the best and the worst team can be massive, spread betting is vastly more popular than moneyline betting. 

ATS betting levels the playing field and the angles for profit. Whereas straight up bets can diminish profit margins when opponents aren’t at a level: a bet on the favorite pays out little while wagers on underdogs win less frequently and predicting which underdog will actually pull off the upset is no mean trick. 

Free NBA Picks Moneyline 

Although point spread betting ranks high with basketball fans, NBA predictions that serve up straight up moneyline recommendations remain prevalent and popular in their own right. Nothing can be more satisfying than predicting a winner in the NBA today. However, games can be sometimes evenly matched and on a level field, making the choice of a winner a tossup for basketball picks. On the flipside, when games are lopsided and a dangerous floater orchestrates the upset, the rewards can be absolutely fantastic. 

Free Basketball Picks OVER/UNDER 

Betting on totals is a great alternative to spread betting and moneyline bets in a game like basketball that is particularly devised to run up the scoreboard in today’s games. NBA totals are some of the highest on any given bookmakers’ odds boards and regularly crack the 200-point total. Scoring is fundamental to basketball and, by that same token, over/under betting tips are a regular feature with NBA picks and predictions.

When basketball is enjoying its offseason, our experts are still at it, busy compiling previews for the upcoming season, discussing the overarching betting landscape and early NBA consensus picks to spot. For example, going into the 2019-20 NBA season, many dubbed it a two-horse race between the Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Lakers. Tale told, the pair entered the 2019-20 playoffs as the top seed in their respective conference. 

2019-20 NBA Season 

The coronavirus pandemic abruptly halted the 2019-20 NBA season in March. Following nearly four months of hiatus, the National Basketball Association embarked on a restart initiative to resurrect the disrupted term and bring it to a conclusion – both the regular season and playoffs – as fairly as possible and before the 2020-21 NBA season was slated to start. 

The NBA season restarted at the end of July and will wrap up, ideally, if all goes to plan, on September 30th with the NBA Finals. Predictions for which will be made freely available when the finalists are known. 

In total, 22 teams were invited to play out the remainder of the league’s regular season NBA schedule in a “bubble” – an isolated zone at the Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida, near Orlando, created in an abundance of caution due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis. From the 22 teams invited, 16 teams advanced into the NBA Playoffs. 

2019-20 NBA Playoffs 

On August 17th, 2020, the NBA playoffs got underway in the Orlando bubble and our experts have been across all the games from the start with tips and predictions. The NBA Playoffs, however, were briefly stopped on August 26th when the Milwaukee Bucks boycotted their playoff game against the Orlando Magic. Players united in their refusal to take to the floor, in a show of solidarity and support with civil protesters in their home state following the police shooting of Jacob Blake. The NBA responded by postponing three Game 5s of three different playoff series. The 2019-20 NBA playoffs resumed on August 29th. 

The Los Angeles Lakers, along with their city rivals the Los Angeles Clippers, No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, lead a Western Conference cast that includes: the Denver Nuggets (No. 3), Houston Rockets (No. 4), Oklahoma City Thunder (No. 5), Utah Jazz (No. 6), Dallas Mavericks (No.7) and Portland Trail Blazers (No. 8). By the NBA odds, the consensus team to beat in the eyes of many experts and the popular NBA pick is the LeBron James-inspired Lakers. 

In the Eastern Conference, the Milwaukee Bucks and the defending NBA champions Toronto Raptors clinched the top two seeds, respectively. The rest of the field included: the Boston Celtics (No. 3), Indiana Pacers (No. 4), Miami Heat (No. 5), Philadelphia 76ers (No. 6), Brooklyn Nets (No. 7) and Orlando Magic (No. 8).
