Best NBA Bets

When Sports Betting Look for Consistent Play

The fact is there are various teams in the NBA that offer consistent play year after year making them the best NBA bets. It’s true that some teams will eventually lose quality players and find themselves, after years of success, floundering. The Boston Celtics were a dynasty for more than a decade and then in the late 1980s and through the entire next decade they were a terrible team. But there were various events and circumstances that brought about that decline. Here are some teams that it seems you can NBA bet on for years to come.

Los Angeles Lakers

Season after season, the Lakers have been one of the most consistent teams in the NBA. They tend to have good team depth, a stable of top-notch players and solid coaching. Ownership is dedicated to ensuring they put a solid team on the floor and they have one of the best fan bases in the league. Finally, because of their consistent play, top players often want to be a part of their team, which means they keep getting fine talent.

Dallas Mavericks

The Dallas Mavericks have put an explosive team on the floor for many years, and they manage to attract solid talent. Their owner is very proactive and wants the team to win. That means he consistently spends the cash to keep his club in the mix. The biggest problem for the Mavs has to do with the fact that in order to get to the finals, they have to usually play the Lakers.

San Antonio Spurs

The Spurs are a club that always seems to have playmakers. They have been champs three times in the past ten years and are one of the most consistent teams in the league. The Spurs seem to always have five guys who average double digits in scoring. Once again, they attract good players and are willing to pay for them.

Boston Celtics

In recent years, the past four, Boston has made a big comeback. They look to continue to perform well. They have a smart general manager and good ownership. Additionally, the team has done well in developing young players and has a strong fan following.

Keys to NBA Betting

There are other fine teams that have played well and every team, even the best, will have a bad season. The teams above have each been winning at least 50 games, if not more, each season for the past four years. Here are some keys to consider when deciding if a club is going to have another good year.

Do they have:

  • Dedicated ownership.
  • Depth.
  • Cash and room to sign quality free agents.
  • Quality head coaching.
  • A core of three premium players.

If a club has all five of these, it is almost assured they will be a winner.

Watch for Changes

Note, if any of the above elements change for the negative, a quality club may have an off year. In sports betting, even though there are teams that seem to always have great seasons, there are times when they stumble. Re-evaluate every team every year to determine the best NBA bets.
