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.
