The VTB United League is an international professional men’s basketball league that is focally based in Russia. The VTB United League is the first tier of Russian professional club basketball, also consisting of teams from Belarus, Estonia, Kazakhstan, and Poland. The highest placed Russian team is crowned the ‘Russian National Champions’ aside from being the league champions if they win. 

The league was founded in 2008, with the first season beginning the following year in 2009. There are 12 teams currently competing for the Russian Cup. 

  • Astana (Kazakhstan) 
  • Avtodor (Russia)
  • CSKA Moscow (Russia) 
  • Enisey (Russia)
  • Kalev/Cramo (Estonia)
  • Lokomotiv Kuban (Russia)
  • Nizhny Novgorod (Russia)
  • Parma (Russia)
  • Tsmoki Minsk (Belarus)
  • UNICS (Russia)
  • Zenit (Russia)
  • Zielona Gora (Poland)

The most successful VTB United League team is the CSKA Moscow team based in Moscow, Russia. In the 12 seasons of the league, CSKA Moscow has won 11. The only other team to win a title was Khimki in the 2010-11 season. The two teams have historically been favored to be in the championship game, with UNICS placing second for a few years behind CSKA Moscow’s first. 

While we in North America may not know a great deal about the Russian league, and their stadium capacities can only house between 4,000 and 15,000, that doesn’t mean that we can’t bet on the games. International basketball is a smaller market in the United States, but it definitely provides some extra betting options for those who want to bet on something different or new. 

The VTB United League section of our sportsbook will have a variety of sports betting options – not quite to the capacity or volume you’d find from the NBA or college basketball, but you’ll find everything you need. If you’re new to betting, we can help you learn the basic VTB United betting options before you get started.

How To Bet On VTB United League

Moneyline odds are a great start and the most simple betting option. You simply select which team you believe will win the game outright. It doesn’t get much more simple than that. Either team will have betting odds, where the favorites will be depicted with a negative number and the underdog with a positive number. 

If you want to mix things up, you can choose to bet on point spreads, which are a popular betting option for basketball. Point spreads apply a handicap to the favored team, and this team will need to win the game by more than that amount. This handicap is displayed as a negative number, perhaps -6.5 points. That team will need to win by more than seven points. The underdog will need to lose by less than six points, or win the game outright. 

If you want to bet on totals, it’s another simple betting option for VTB United League. This can be a great option if you aren’t overly familiar with teams and who might win the game. Totals allow you to bet on the total number of points that both teams will score collectively. Our oddsmakers will set the line, and you can decide if you think the total number of points by either side added together will be over or under the set line. 

You may not find the selection of props that you would find on other basketball betting sections of the sportsbook but you may find a few props on bigger, more popular games or during the Finals. Props allow you to bet on instances or outcomes that have nothing to do with the final score or who wins the game. You can bet on things a player may do, things a team may do, or things that could occur in the game. 

If you think you have a good idea who will win the VTB United League, and the Russian Cup far in advance of the championship, you can bet on what is called a futures wager. These wager types allow you to bet on a riskier bet, depending on the team you plan to bet on, for a large payout. There are only 13 teams, so you have a one in thirteen chance of being right, however, we all know that the two teams who are almost consistently in the Finals will be heavily favored, so if you can find value in an underdog, you could find yourself with a huge payout at the end of the year. 

If you are ready to try your hand betting on the VTB United League, head over to the sportsbook and start placing your wagers.

Rolling If Bets (RIF) allow you to use the balance (amount) from existing wagers to make a new wager. As long as existing wagers have not been graded, the amount wagered can still be used to make new wagers. However, if your original wager loses, the Rolling If Bet is then cancelled. There are two options for ties (pushes); you can specify if you want the Rolling If Bet to continue in case of a tie or simply cancel the RIF.

Rolling If Bets are:
  • only allowed on straight bets, Parlays and Teasers.
  • not available with Free Plays or Futures and Props
  • only available if you have pre existing, non graded wagers
  • you can only use the funds from the amount of the pre existing wager
