Why NBA matches are best for betting predictions

The basketball matches from NBA allow every bettor to create many different betting strategies. It is mostly because of the huge number of matches every team plays in the league. Besides, basketball is a sport that gives much more betting information than football for example, as the teams score many points, which allows better statistical analysis for the class of every team.

That is why recently I have focused my efforts on basketball and especially on the NBA matches.

My latest betting system, which is connected with NBA matches, involves considering the last six matches of each team. The system is extremely simple, but effective enough.

To use this betting system I record the home and away results of each team. When I make my betting predictions for the matches I write down in an excel sheet the total points scored by the host in their last six home matches. In another excel cell I write down the number of points scored against the host in their last six home matches. Then I do the same for the guests where I take into account only their matches away from home.

When I have the needed betting data, I calculate the difference between the numbers of scored and allowed points, thus getting a positive or a negative number. This number or let’s call it a team factor is the number which shows the team’s strength.

Based on this number I divide the teams into five groups, where the higher number means a stronger team. All that remains to do is to carefully track how the teams in one group are presented against the teams in other groups.
When I get enough betting data about every possible match, I start looking for a good value bet.

The information I collect is mostly related to the exact difference of a victory of either teams, as well as the margin suggested by the bookmaker.

So far the system runs more than successful as it allows with an additional analysis of matches to achieve very good results in my bets on NBA basketball matches.
