One of the sports that generate more movement, besides football, is basketball, with the NBA. There are a lot of matches every night during the regular season and that offers a good margin of alternative markets and individual performance markets. We’ll give you some tips for the upcoming weeks below:

NBA: How to bet on the alternative markets

The more traditional markets, as moneyline, handicaps and points’ lines, are good options. But here we will bring alternative markets of each game and individual ones, alongside with some tips, of what can be exploited on these first couple of weeks of the regular season.


The bookmaker 1XBet offers several options for team’s alternative markets, as rebounds, assists, 2 or 3-pts shots, which generally isn’t offered by most of the other bookmakers.


The rebounds are the balls that are picked up after a shot or shot attempt. We can choose between individual or teams’ rebounds or even total rebounds in the game, with this option being the total rebounds picked up by the two teams.

• Main teams on this aspect:

Milwaukee Bucks: The Bucks have an average of 51.9 rebounds per match, being a team with a lot of physical strength and a lot of power on the inside.

They should be one of the leaders on this aspect until the end of the competition.

• Main players on this aspect:

Andre Drummond (Detroit Pistons): I believe this will be the leader until the end of the competition in terms of the rebounds, having a ridiculous average of 18.6 rebounds per game. He is the main center of the Pistons and he plays on average 35 minutes per game.

Kevin Love (Cleveland Cavaliers): Love has an average of 14.4 rebounds per game. These days he is playing for a weakened team, being one of the main pieces of the attack and defence.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee Bucks): He is the MVP of the last regular season and he should be one of the main contenders again this season.

He has a good average in terms of points, rebounds and assists and in terms of rebounds, he is the 3rd in the league, with 14.3 rebounds per match.


Assists are the passes made before made baskets.

If it was in football, it would be made by that player that passed towards the goal.

• Main teams on this aspect:

New Orleans Pelicans: This is a team that was rebuilt this season. They’ve signed players with more mobility, having good penetration potential and having good players from the outside.

So far, they are the leaders on this aspect, with 28 assists, and they should stay near the top until the end.
Phoenix Suns: The Suns are a great surprise during these first couple of weeks. They’ve been showing they are also a team with a lot of mobility and one of the most effective ones offensively.

They also have good penetration plays and they appear on the 2nd place of the rankings, with 27.7 assists per game.

• Main players on this aspect:

LeBron James (Los Angeles Lakers): LeBron is one of the best players in history and he has a vast technical repertoire. This season, the Lakers tried to get some good centers such as Anthony Davis or Dwight Howard, and they also have some good 3-pts shooters.

James already gave some interviews saying that he will have a lot of assists this season, and so far, he is the league leader, with an average of 11.1 per game.

Malcolm Brogdon (Indiana Pacers): The Pacers aren’t a team that is doing well this season. Brogdon is one of the players with more influence on the team’s plays. He averages 9.9 assists per game.

Luka Doncic (Dallas Mavericks): The Mavericks looked to build a good team for the season. The main piece is Doncic, that was the best rookie last year.

He has a good points’ average, and he is the more active player of the Mavs. They’ve signed Porzingis and he also shares the responsibility on the inside. Doncic is one of the best passers in the league and he has an average of 9.1 assists per game.


Bet365 also offers good markets for individual lines. The 3-pointers made are a big option of individual market, especially for teams with good mobility and great shooters.

• Main teams on this aspect:

Houston Rockets: This is surely the team we should keep an eye on.

The Rockets setup their game around James Harden, one of the best shooters from the 3-pts line.

They’ve also signed Westbrook, that also has a good repertoire. He is the leader in terms of 3-pts attempts, with 47.8 attempts per match and 15.8 made.

Milwaukee Bucks: The Bucks appear as one of the best options, because they have Antetokounmpo.

Although the center isn’t one of the best on this aspect, he has a lot of power on the inside and when he penetrates, he drags a lot of marking and a lot of times he gives the ball to free teammates on the perimeter. The Bucks have on average 15.8 3-pts shots made per game.

• Main players on this category:

James Harden (Houston Rockets): Although he isn’t the first name on the list, he is always a great option, due to the many attempts he has per game. There are matches where he reaches almost 20 attempts and scores on average four 3-pts shots per game.

Karl-Anthony Towns (Minnesota Timberwolves): He is a player with a lot of resources. He is strong, good on the inside, but he is the league leader in terms of outside shots, having an average of 4.2 successful 3-pts shots per game.

Damian Lillard (Portland Trailblazers): Lillard is the main player of the Blazers, having a lot of resources and a lot of technique for penetrations and therefore, a lot of times he gains space for outside shots. He has an average of 3.9 made 3-pointers per game.

Remaining markets:

Double-double: When a player is able to reach double digits (at least 10) in 2 aspects between points, assists and rebounds. This is an aspect where we have to keep an eye out for high-scoring centers and with a high average of rebounds per game.

Triple-double: When the player is able to reach double digits on the 3 aspects stated above. This is good for players that have a lot of impact on the plays and with strength to go for rebounds, such as LeBron James, Luka Doncic, etc.

Blocks: The Blocks in basketball are those moves that block the shot of the opponent.

Turnovers: These are the losses of ball possession for the team. Some examples: bad passes, crossing the line when they have the ball, staying more than 3 seconds inside the paint when having the ball. Missed shot attempts don’t count as turnovers.

On this aspect it is better to look for players that have a lot of the ball during the game, with the best option being the shooters just like Curry, Harden, Kemba Walker, etc.
