NBA gambling odds are inherently different from football gambling odds because the two sports are so distinct. NBA odds and football gambling go hand in hand, but one’s ability in analyzing NBA gambling odds does not necessarily correlate to ability to handicap football gambling odds.
Consequently, the first thing a bettor must do when considering combining NBA gambling odds and football gambling odds within a single bet is to ensure that he is comfortable using both.
Although some NBA odds enthusiasts do not even know it is the case, parlays and teasers do allow NBA odds fans to combine odds from the two sports together. Such use of NBA gambling odds can be extremely entertaining, but it nevertheless must be handled intelligently.
If you are significantly better at handicapping NBA odds than football gambling odds, then you may be better off to simply create your parlay of NBA plays rather than including football ones as well.
However, if you do feel comfortable handicapping both football and NBA gambling odds, then such wagers are a perfect opportunity to include both types of bets into a single wager.
Also, when combining NBA gambling odds and football gambling odds in a teaser you should typically look for NBA games that are likely to have a low number of points scored. When fewer points are scored, it means that each point you are given within the teaser is worth much more.
Consequently, only including games with NBA gambling odds involving very low totals will offer you the best value in your teasers. When you are combining your NBA gambling odds with football odds in parlays, the key is to only include wagers from the two sports that you would be willing to make independently.
As long as you would be willing to make each play alone, then that fact illustrates a reasonable level of confidence in your handicapping of the football or NBA gambling odds to include it into a parlay involving two or more plays.
