NBA Draft Betting
NBA Draft Prop Bets and Professional Betting teams with high-profile players with similar positions usually tend to want to keep these players as their primary choices for the upcoming draft. However, this is not always so. Players who are chosen first or second in the draft can be traded for high draft picks later in the season if things work out in their favor. Most NBA players, of course, don’t like being traded, especially when there’s a chance to become a top pick. And even then, it would take time for them to earn big paychecks in the league.
Some pro bettors will try their best to keep the player they have selected in the draft but not if that player has a big contract, especially in case the player turns out to be one of the top picks of the draft. It’s very possible that such players will still be on rookie minimum contracts. That’s why betting on NBA Draft Prop Bets isn’t just about the odds. It’s also about knowing that this player may not be around when his new team has its first training camp.
In the last few years, many NBA players have moved on from the league altogether. That’s why these players are not considered draft picks. Some players like Tracy McGrady and Allen Iverson left the league for personal reasons, while others, like Carmelo Anthony and Rashard Lewis, decided to go out of the league. However, there are still players who could still find a team next season. These players are called free agents.
There are still some good chances for NBA draft prop bets and professional bettors to earn good results if they use NBA free agent players. Free agents may be available at the end of the season for trades. That means you can have an excellent chance of making big money by choosing these players. But remember to be realistic in your expectations.
Of course, not all of the best NBA players are available at the end of the season. This is where professional bettors will need to be extra careful. Since free agents are the ones who are often on the move, it would be best if they know how to identify and pick the good ones who are still in the league and those who will likely not be on the move anytime soon. These include veterans like Allen Iverson and Tinsley, as well as youngsters such as Quentin Richardson and Vince Carter.
Once they are identified, these players may be available in trade for top players at the trade deadline. Of course, the odds for successful trading up are also very high. With a little effort and knowledge, you can have a good chance of making good profits from NBA Draft Prop bets and betting on NBA Pro Betting. The same holds true if you choose top players from college programs such as Kentucky, Duke, Indiana, Connecticut, Oklahoma State and Michigan.
