Round 1 Betting

It’s important to not just bet on your favorite team in round 1. You should do your research to identify the teams most likely to win or potential upsets.

It’s an even better value if you can make a future bet that goes all the way to the NBA finals.

When sportsbooks set the lines wrong, you can win big. Especially in Round 1 of the NBA playoffs.
