NBA Schedule 2020/21
The NBA and the NBAPA announced they’ve agreed upon the rules for the upcoming 2020/21 NBA season, following the Covid-19 stricken 2019-20 season that saw the Los Angeles Lakers crowned champions back in October. The 2020/21 NBA season is scheduled to start on December 22nd, meaning a quick turn around, and one that has been met with some criticism by many players across the league. The NBA has released the first half of the 2020/21 schedule, with the second half of the schedule due to being released in the latter half of the first half of the NBA schedule.
Each team will play a 72-game season, which is 10 fewer than a regular year, another fall out from the landscape we currently find ourselves in. Players and staff will be tested daily, starting from the first day of individual workouts on December 1st, and will continue throughout the season.

Free NBA Picks Against The Spread and Expert NBA Predictions for Today’s Games.
The NBA is one of the few major North American sports to acknowledge that their games are wagered on – even partnering with MGM to be the official gaming partner of the league.

Much like hockey, there is no shortage of NBA predictions every single night from October to April and into the postseason.

Do You Have Any Expert NBA Picks Today?
We offer free expert NBA picks on every single day of the NBA season, even Christmas Day. The NBA season is an 82-game grind but our experts analyze every game to help you make the best NBA bets daily. Player matchups, rotations, injuries, travel schedules and referees, and many other factors are considered when finding the best daily NBA betting tips.
Free NBA Predictions Moneyline
The Moneyline simply means you pick a winner of the game. NBA Moneyline bets are most valuable when wagering on two evenly matched teams. If you’ve got a team like Golden State who wins 70+ of their 82 games in a season, it’s not far-fetched for the Lakers’ Moneyline betting odds to be listed at -650 or more. On the flip side, bets against these upper-echelon teams is a great way to maximize profits when they lose.
Free NBA Picks Against the Spread
When you want to bet on an elite team but don’t want to risk $600 or more to win $100, our expert NBA picks against the spread are the way to go. NBA betting against the spread means you’re wagering not only on a team to win, but also to win by a certain amount of points. If we take our earlier example of Golden State being -650 on the Moneyline they will be around -10.5 against the spread. This means they have to win the game by 11 points or more for you to cash your ticket.
NBA picks against the spread are a great way to bet on underdogs too. Let’s say we go against the Golden State Warriors in the above example and we take the points. Our team can lose by 10 points or fewer points and we still win. This is where those ‘meaningless’ half-court shots at the buzzer turn from anguish into elation. They can also cause an upset and win the game outright.
Free NBA Picks Over Under
NBA over/under betting is arguably the most exhilarating of all the North American sports. On any given night in the NBA, you might see an 85-81 contest in one game compared to a 218-205 score in another. NBA totals picks can be legitimately won or lost with one bad – or great – quarter. A lot of bettors enjoy NBA over/under free picks because every single offensive possession counts and it makes the games that much more thrilling to watch.
