Watch NBA matches online for free

Great news came today from bet365. As of today, they offer the possibility to watch NBA matches live from their platform for live betting. I already managed to watch the two NBA matches – LA Clippers versus Sacramento and Miami versus Orlando.

So, the main question, how can you watch basketball from NBA live in bet365? Note that the service is free, but the bookmaker requires you to have an account with them and to have some cash in it . If these conditions are not met, the section doesn’t load.
So, if you have an account at bet365 and at least some money in it, just go to the section for live betting and select the game you want to watch online. It will be opened a panel, which starts the video and you can watch the desired match. It is important to know that you are not pushed in any way to bet on this match. You can watch as many matches as you want without making a single bet.

The only downside of this offer is that bet365 have left a very small window through which to watch the match. I suppose they have done it in that way with the idea the user to be able to monitor the odds for the match and while you watch basketball online to be tempted to place a bet.

However, everything comes with a price and in this case, it is the small size panel and the running odds around us. However the audio is original which makes the atmosphere exciting enough. Enjoy watching!

The NBA season so far in numbers

The NBA season is on its 20th round and it seems now is the time to make the first analyzes of how the teams are playing this season. Without any doubt, the most impressive thing so far in NBA is Lakers’ extremely poor performance. Whit their players they should be competing for the first place, but with Dwight Howard, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Steve Nash on the list, they are below the 50 percent mark.

One of the most popular betting option for basketball matches is betting on under and over total scored points by both teams. What the statistics show about teams performances with this score line?

Here are all the results of basketball matches, played so far. In the first column are the teams. Then there are two columns with the number of matches completed with under and over. The last two columns are respectively for the percentages of matches completed under and over:

Отбори U O % %
Boston 10 10 50 50
Brooklyn 12 8 60 40
New York 7 12 37 63
Philadelphia 9 12 43 57
Toronto 10 11 48 52
Dallas 9 11 45 55
Houston 8 12 40 60
Memphis 9 8 53 47
New Orleans 10 11 48 52
San Antonio 8 13 38 62
Chicago 14 6 70 30
Cleveland 11 10 52 48
Detroit 12 9 57 43
Indiana 12 9 57 43
Milwaukee 10 8 56 44
Denver 9 12 43 57
Minnesota 9 9 50 50
Portland 10 10 50 50
Oklahoma 10 11 48 52
Utah 10 11 48 52
Atlanta 9 9 50 50
Charlotte 8 11 42 58
Miami 9 10 47 53
Orlando 11 8 58 42
Washington 7 11 39 61
Golden State 7 14 33 67
LA Clippers 9 11 45 55
LA Lakers 9 12 43 57
Phoenix 9 11 45 55
Sacramento 10 11 48 52

What is most remarkable in the table above is the fact that the vast majority of the teams are near to the 50 percent. This is completely normal for NBA under – over betting. Usually from 30 teams in the league 22-25 finish close to 50%.

What make an impression though are three teams that are clearly distinguished from the rest. These are Chicago, Golden State and New York.

Clearly, Chicago for one or another reason is overrated by bookmakers offering bets for NBA matches. That’s why we have such a large percentage of matches that end with an under. The opposite can be said for Golden State, but this could be influenced by the time of the season we are now. Usually, in the beginning of the season the bookmakers give very low rates for under and over betting for total scored points. Probably this is the explanation for the Golden State’s high percentage of over ended matches.

There is an interesting thing that I saw in the last few seasons in NBA. It is that if a team is above 60% in this table after the first 20 matches it finished the season with the same percentage. It will be interesting to see will it happen again this season.

Under-over researching results after 66 games

What is going on with my research about betting on under or over in Basketball? Nothing so special, I would say, and the reason for that is the fact that the ROI has dropped from 17% to just four percents. However, there is good news and this is Gauss method for least square approximation. This is the most profitable method. Yes, with just four percents ROI, but it is a start. May be the way that the data is being collected is wrong, or maybe 4% is not so small profit. We will see.

Here are the results:

Under-over percentages from previous matches give 95.5 ROI
Under-over percentages from previous special matches give 101.3 ROI
Gauss method with data collected from last 10 matches for every team give 104 ROI
Gauss method with data collected from last 10 mutual games give 98.39 ROI
Average score made by teams in last 10 games for every team give 101.29 ROI
Average score made by teams in last 10 mutual games give 89.71 ROI

The last row is really a surprise for me. How is it possible the average for mutual games to be the worst result? Really strange, but a fact.


Should we start betting under on WNBA matches?

I am asking myself this question right now and the reason is simple. If you take a look at the table below you will see that the gap between matches finished over and under has never been so huge like right now. As far as I remember some previous seasons in NBA and WNBA the bookies are trying to hold the percentages 50-50 between unders and overs.

Would it be the same way this year? I do not know, but I will try it.

Here is the table:

Los Angeles
New York
San Antonio

If we speak in general all under finished games are 43.6% and over finished games are, well here the math is easy ?

So, if those numbers above must go to 50-50 percent there is clear profit. I will try it. Crossing fingers.


17% profit so far in my basketball under-over research

I cannot say I am satisfied with the results from this research. I definitely expected more from Gauss less square approximate method. I see that there is profit, but I expected more. Even so, 17% pure profit from 31 matches with betting on under over in basketball is not bad.
Here are the stats.

% L + %i L + G L + Gm L + Avg. L + Avg.m L +
61.3 54.8 41.9 58 45.1 38.7

If we start talking in profit percentage, best results shows my old method of betting, where you betting under or over depends from all previous matches for both teams. The profit there is 17%. However, as I learned from previous NBA regular season this method is going to be less profitable at the end of the season, because bookies start to level under

Result on my research after 18 games in WNBA

Last week my betting study was occupied only with the research in basketball under or over ending. I wrote a few times about it and I will do it now, again. It is time for evaluation after the first 18 matches already played.

I won’t be explaing again which methods I use. You can read more about them here.

There is 16.1% profit in two of the profits. The other four are below the line after those 18 games. However, as we all know we have to wait for the final matches for making analysis.

Here is the table with the result after 18 games in percentages:

% L +
%i L +
G L +
Gm L +
Avg. L +
Avg.m L +

One mark here. All odds here are 1.91


Results from my basketball betting research

It is a bit strange for me but my basketball under over research shows similar results. I use 6 methods for picking matches and all of them give results around 50%. This of course is 100% unsatisfying, but my research will continue.

Here are the results after 9 matches on WNBA:

When I use my old method with all previous matches

Phoenix made profit. Finally!

As I posted earlier I was going to bet on Under for Phoenix with Martinagale. Finally it gave profit and I am satisfied with full pockets. 🙂

Crossing fingers this to continue.


Research about basketball under – over betting

I am starting a quick research on a few different strategies about betting on under or over at basketball games. I will use WNBA because it is only one major championship where matches are on right now. Few words about those different strategies: the first one I have used before in NBA last regular season. I follow the under

Bet under on Phoenix matches in WNBA

I am going to bet under on next five Phoenix games with martingale. I know it is a bit dangerous and I can lose all my bank, but I’ve got some reasons. From the beginning of WNBA Phoenix played 8 matches and all of them are over.

The longest strike of over I know about was New York’s last season with 12 overs in a row.

I think Phoenix will make at least one under in the next few games. So, crossing fingers.
