Detailed Info in Real-Time
We know that sports fans and gamblers live in the here and now, which is why our basketball live stream scores are both detailed and up to the minute. We don’t merely provide you with the points on the board, we’ll also provide you with live, real-time stats. You can find out who’s scored, the possession stats and free throw conversion.
In addition to this live and updated information, you can also find the league tables, past results from either team and the head to head record. Basically, if it’s going to have an effect on the scores or your basketball betting lines, you’ll find it in the live score center here at Oddspedia.
Speaking of basketball lines and bets, the live score center also provides live basketball odds for each game. This means that you can see how the basketball bet odds are drifting as the scoreline changes, helping you to keep your finger on the pulse. If in-play basketball lines and bets are your thing, then the basketball live scores at Oddspedia have everything you need.
A Personalized Live Score Experience
850 leagues and tournaments is a lot of basketball, and we’re well aware that very few people have time to sift through such information. At Oddspedia you’ll find a filtered search function that helps you to easily find the games, leagues and teams you want to see.
You can also set alerts for your favorite tournaments and players to fully customize the experience. Looking for the scores that are happening right now? You can click the “Live” button to see the games that are going on anywhere in the world at that given moment in time
The stats that we provide are perhaps more useful to sports betting fans than the real-time basketball live scores themselves. As well as the in-play stats, including possession and shot conversion, we also provide you with league, team and player history. Our stats aren't just there to be used in real-time during the game either. We’ve got information that’s useful both before, during and after the game.
Our player stats help you to find out who’s putting the most points on the board, who has the best free-throw conversion and who has the most blocks. All of this information can be used before, during and after each game to help you better predict the next one.
The bookmakers, tipsters and experts use tools just like ours in order to calculate their basketball odds. By keeping up with basketball using Oddspedia, you can get ahead of the game. This means you can enhance your basketball betting lines and chances of beating the bookies. Our stats use technology that’s up to a professional standard but made available to you the fans.
Basketball Streams and Live Tracker
For the more high profile games, such as those in the NBA and the Euro League, you can keep on top of what’s happening in real-time with our live tracker. This is a tool that tells you exactly what’s happening on the court at every given moment. With our live tracking device, you’ll know exactly who is in possession and what type of play is happening at every given moment. From time outs to free throws - you’ll be in the know.
If you want to go further than tracking the scores, stats and odds in real-time, then you can make use of our basketball streams. If one of the bookmakers that we list has a free basketball stream available, you can easily access it from our live score center. To see if there are any basketball streams available for the game you're tracking, click the “Watch Your Event Live” button.
As well as providing you with basketball streams, scores and live odds, we also give you access to the latest news and headlines. Simply click on the “News” tab and you’ll find all of the up to the minute headlines and news stories that influence the game you’re watching.
Oddspedia has everything from team news, to transfers and the rumor mill. In keeping with the modern game, we’ll also provide you with the latest social media updates from the leagues, teams and players themselves as well.
While we do also have our own in-house news team, we mostly give you the stories from the top news outlets. With a pool of thousands of US-based and global news outlets, the news you’ll find is ranked in relevance to each game. This means that as well as the big-name news outlets, you might find news from a local or fan-based site. For example, if you’re tracking the Denver Nuggets score, you’ll most likely find news ranging from a variety of sources. Included in these could be CBS, Yahoo News and the Denver Stiffs.

Basketball Betting Guide FAQ
How to calculate basketball betting odds?
Basketball odds are calculated much the same as all other sports betting lines in the US. Moneyline, or “American Odds” display the probability in positive or negative numbers. These help you usually calculate how much you stand to win with your wager. Positive numbers show you how much you stand to win with a $100 stake. Negative odds show you how much you need to stake in order to win $100.
How to Choose a Betting Site for Basketball?
You want to find a site that’s basketball focused and has a strong showing in all areas. This means you want a wide range of tournaments covered, a vast selection of betting markets and the best odds. A good welcome package and other bonus offers don’t go a miss. Fortunately, you don’t have to shop around to find this. Here at Oddspedia, we have a bookmaker comparison that covers over 80 US betting sites.
How basketball betting odds work?
Basketball betting odds essentially show a numeric display of the implied probability a bookmaker has given to a particular outcome from happening. Rather than focusing on the probability percentage, the moneyline odds used in America are designed to make it easier to calculate how much you stand to win. With positive odds, you stand to win more, but the probability is low. With negative odds, you stand to win less but the probability is high.
How to predict basketball results?
The answer to this question is simple - get to know the game. Watch it, get to know the players, the leagues and the teams. By using the live scores, stats and news available here at Oddspedia, you’ll find that you naturally become better at predicting basketball results. In knowing your player stats, current form and head to head records, you can better determine the probable outcomes.
Is it possible to make money betting on basketball?
Firstly, there’s a distinction that should be made between ‘making’ money and ‘winning’ money. Can you make money by betting on basketball? No - you make money by working or investing. Can you win money betting on basketball? Most certainly yes, but you can also lose money if you’re not careful. That’s why you want to use Oddspedia as your number one companion to help your basketball wagers become winners!
Are there successful basketball strategies?
There are a number of basketball betting strategies that have been successful. You can find out some of these by joining the basketball community here at Oddspedia. It is worth mentioning though, that some generalized betting strategies that have been successful in the past are no longer feasible.
