What is the NBA Consensus?

The NBA consensus is an estimation of where NBA public bettors are placing their money and why certain NBA odds and point spreads fluctuate. These basketball betting numbers come directly from oddsmakers in real time to allow sports bettors to see what the NBA public betting percentages are prior to placing their own NBA bets.

How Impactful Can The NBA Consensus Be On My Betting Decision?

Whether sports bettors decide to use the NBA public consensus to help them in their NBA betting, it can still have a significant impact. If a large portion of bettors make NBA public bets on one team (or one side of the over-under), sportsbooks can adjust the spread or line the other way to offset some of those plays. So, in reality, the NBA consensus is affecting you even if you don’t take it into consideration when placing a basketball bet.

The NBA consensus can tell you plenty. On more heavily NBA public betting, nationally televised games such as Thursdays on TNT and Fridays on ESPN, or games that include high-profile teams such as the Lakers, Warriors or Bucks, the public consensus will tell you where more casual NBA bettors are placing their bets. Sharps – betting experts who consider myriad trends, recent performances and subtleties that could affect a basketball game – make up far more of the NBA public consensus on smaller, less important games.

Simply put, the public NBA consensus gives casual bettors an idea of where the majority of basketball bets are being placed. And it’s incredibly to use with Bookies.com’s public consensus tool.

Should You Bet With or Against the NBA Public Betting?

It can be risky to bet with the NBA public betting, especially on a more popular basketball game, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a slam dunk to bet against them. The real answer lies somewhere in the middle, that it’s one of a few critical factors to understand and consider before placing an NBA bet.

There’s a common phrase uttered in betting: “Fade the betting public.” It’s the belief that, since online betting websites win more than they lose, playing the opposite of what the majority of bettors have placed money on will results in more victories than defeats. That’s not exactly the case. Oddsmakers know that some NBA bettors will fade the public; they take that into account when making and adjusting betting lines. What’s more, sharps who wager significant amounts of money can affect lines and make it seem as though the public – your average Joe who doesn’t know much about betting – is wagering on one side. In that case, fading the NBA public is fading sharps who have the most insight into NBA bets.

So, is it a good idea to bet with the NBA public? Not exactly, for the same reasons listed above. Sportsbooks do win more than they lose, and if casual bettors make up the NBA public consensus, you’re betting with a side that loses more than it wins.

I’ve Taken Note of the NBA Consensus. What Happens Now?

It’s time to decide whether you believe the NBA public betting has a leg up on sportsbooks, or whether oddsmakers have taken into account what they believe the NBA betting public percentage will bet before setting a line. As is the case with everything in gambling, there’s no sure thing – if there was, everyone would use it and everyone would win. And like everything in gambling, it’s part of the equation.

After analyzing the NBA consensus betting tool on, the decision is yours to wager on one side of the NBA point spread, moneyline and/or over-under.
