NBA 1st Quarter & 1st Half Betting Report

If you’re the type who hits the sack early, NBA first-quarter and first-half betting will definitely suit your lifestyle and quench your thirst for NBA betting action. With an increase in popularity for NBA betting, these two bet types are becoming incredibly common, and finding information to help you handicap teams in these spots is available across the internet.

How NBA 1st Quarter & 1st Half Betting Works

There’s not much to it, really. Instead of placing a bet on the spread or total for a full game, you’re doing so for either the first quarter or first half. Obviously, the numbers will be lower with first-half spreads and totals being close to half of the full-game numbers, while first-quarter spreads and totals are, you guessed it, close to a quarter of the full-game numbers.

Why Make Quarter & Half Bets Instead of Full-Game?

Just like in full-game betting, certain teams excel in these spots and different trends develop that are worth tailing if you catch them at the right time. The Memphis Grizzlies, for example, were a big money-maker during the 2018-19 season, covering the first-half spread more than any other team.

How These Tables Work:

For the ATS tables, you’ll see each team’s overall record, home/away records and record in their last 10 games so you can see who’s hot and who’s not. In brackets next to the record is each team’s point differential. For the OVER/UNDER tables, we use the same criteria, but in brackets next to the record is the average combined score.

Many factors should be considered when placing a bet and this data can be a great starting spot for handicapping NBA games. Good luck!
