As with any sport, it’s impossible to predict the outcome of an NBA game with certainty. However, there are a few advantages that could help your chances of winning a bet, including:
Whether you bet over or under the sportsbook’s predicted total score depends entirely on you. Either way, you’ll only win the bet if you correctly guess the total score as being more or less than the sportsbook’s figure.
If the total score is exactly the same as the predicted one, you’ll have your bets refunded to you – as neither option wins.
RL stands for Run Line, and refers to the combination of odds and moneyline on an NBA game. This is determined by the spread and is usually displayed as a plus for the underdog and a minus for the favourite.
So, if you bet on the favourite with a +16 Run Line, they need to win the game by more than 16 points for you to win the bet.
