How To Maximize NBA Betting ROI Using OddsShopper

Wait For Updated NBA Injury News

NBA injuries dictate a lot in the NBA betting market. Lines move frequently as players get ruled out over the course of the day. Typically, the biggest dump of NBA injury updates happen when the 1:30 p.m. ET and the 5:30 ET injury report updates come out. You can find the team injury report updates from this link.

In the morning, I always review the NBA injury reports to figure out which players are questionable, which players are out and which players are returning from injury. If a player’s under is projecting well on OddsShopper but they have a key teammate listed as questionable, I will hold off on placing the bet until I have more information.

Here’s an example of how injuries can change a player’s expected production. For the season, Dejounte Murray is averaging 22.5 points in 36 minutes per game. Trae Young is a key teammate of Murray’s who missed a handful of games this season.

When playing without Young, Murray averages 24.4 points per 36 minutes. This is because Murray takes on a larger workload and takes more shots when Young isn’t on the court. With this in mind, I wouldn’t bet unders for Murray props in the morning of a day when Young is listed as questionable.

The bet might look good in the morning, but the situation could change if Young is ruled out. Therefore in this situation, I would wait for an injury update on Young before placing an under bet on Murray that projects well.

Give EV Age a Few Minutes to Settle

When you are on the OddsShopper Market-Based EV Bets page, you will see a column that says EV Age. This column tells you how long the recommended bet has been up.

Often, lines can move quickly from the initially posted line, which is why I try to avoid bets with an EV Age of just one or two minutes.

In the past, I would jump on a fresh line only to have it projected as a -EV bet a few minutes later — or have the line move against me only for a better line to become available.
