The wager amount is also very high in case of professional gamblers. They also read the sports betting lines before placing wager and here are some tips to help you understand and read them.

1. Each team participating in the sports has a number next to their name and that digit is called spread. Spread is the most popular line of betting. Here you will just not guess the wining or the losing team but you will also have to predict the gap between the wining and the losing team.

2. Money line is another betting strategy where you will find a negative and a positive sign. Positive sign means the amount that you are going to win and negative sign is the money that you need to put as wager. The money line is basically the last digit on the top row.

3. Over under is the bottom row and in this style you will not be predicting the winner or the loser team of the game but you will be placing your wager on the final score of the match. While doing this the first number that you will see is the score that you predicted and then is the amount that you have to begin with as wager.

Is this year Kevin Durant will win the MVP ?

Written by Super User. Posted in NBA odds and scores

The All Star Break is upon us, which means we have come to the middle of the NBA season. There are the regular superstars who got voted in, some young great players who will play for the first time in the all star, and some great players who plays a terrific first half of the season, but got snubbed and will not play in the game. No matter who will play, it's seems the experts are united, and we all know who will be this year MVP, and it's not going to be Lebron James.

At just 25 years old, Kevin Durant is the man to beat in the NBA, and with no titles to show for, he and his team, the Oklahoma Thunder will go as hard as possible to make it a special year not just personally, but team wise, by not just going to the finals, but actually win it this time around.

The versatile Durant, is producing yet another phenomenal season, averaging well over 30 point per game, carrying his team to the best record in the west, without his star point guard, and the best player on the team after Durant in Russell Westbrook. (who should come back sometimes in the next few months.), but that fact hasn't slowed all star Durant, who at one time posted a 12 games winning streak with him scoring over 30 points in each.

Even at mid-season, it is quite clear that Durant will win his first MVP award of the regular season, after Lebron James, arguably the best player in the game, and two time NBA Champion won 4 awards already, and is enjoying yet another great season.

But this year, it clearly shows that Durant has elevated his game to a different level, shooting from anywhere on the court with ease. And when that accompanied with victories, and the best record in the west, and most likely, in the league, that is the safest recipe for another great season, and a first very deserving award. Can they actually go all the way ? why not. When Kevin Durant is on your team, as most sites agree, you always has a good chance of winning.
