3. Watch the Public Opinion

While the public is not always the answer – a great view at betting on the postseason is to watch what the public opinion of the game is. The public influences the line greatly. Watch this, and know that odds makers are using it to influence the betting line.

4. Look for home underdogs

Games are typically close in the postseason. While this is not ALWAYS true, a lot of times you will see very competitive games. If you see a team at home, and they are an underdog, at least give them a look. These are games that require you to take a closer look at, and maybe give it a shot.

5. Momentum can be fickle

While you may believe in momentum when discussing postseason basketball, fine. But, keep in mind, momentum can switch sides awfully quick. Just because a team played really well in the previous game, missing a few shots, or turning the ball over a couple times can really change the momentum.

There you have it. The NBA Postseason is not only exciting, but provides a great chance to win some serious money. We hope you take some of our thoughts, and put them to good use. Best of luck betting on the NBA playoffs, and enjoy the action on the hardwood!
