The Bulgarian NBL will have a variety of betting options – not like you’d see in the NBA or NCAA College Basketball, but you would find a great variety of moneylines, totals and point spreads on these games through the season duration and into the Bulgarian Cup competition.
If you’re new to betting altogether, you may want to learn more about these betting options and how they work. We provide some great betting resources in our sports betting guide, so be sure to read more in depth if you need to.
A great place to start when betting on the Bulgarian NBL is with moneyline odds. These betting options allow you to pick the winner of the game straight up. This is one of the most simple wagrs you can place and are a great starting point if you’re new to sports betting. Each team will have odds associated with how likely they are to win the game, and your payout will be dependent on the odds.
With point spreads, you are betting on the favored team to have a slight handicap before the game even begins. You will see the line set and the oddsmakers will have determined a spread they believe that the favored team will win the game by. This number will be shown as a negative number, maybe -11, let’s say, and that team will have to win by more than 11 points. The underdog will have to lose by less than that many points (covering the spread) or win the game outright.
Totals betting allows you to bet on the total number of points both teams score collectively. This is a fun betting option if you don’t really know the teams or have the slightest clue of who might win. You just have to decide if you think the total number of points for both teams added together will be over or under the set line on the sportsbook.
Props might not be as plentiful in the Bulgarian NBL as they would be in the NBA or NCAAB, but you may be able to find a few great value props if you’re lucky! Props allow you to bet on instances that have nothing to do with the final score or outcome of the game. Just fun, quirky props or you can bet on how many points a player may score.
Futures betting allows you to bet on the winner of the Bulgarian Cup, but you will place this wager earlier in the season. This wager is considered to be riskier than game lines, because you have a 1/10 chance of being right. If you’re correct, you could be in for a huge payout though!
If you think you’re ready to start betting on the Bulgarian NBL, head over to the sportsbook now and start placing your wagers!
