Here’s a look at Live betting for the NBA, week 2 in February 2020
NBA Basketball Games – Feb. 10 through Feb. 16
Live betting is one of the fastest-growing revenue streams in the online sportsbook industry. Online bookie agents should look to promote live betting on nationally televised NBA games. By doing so, they can ensure profit. Check out this week’s list of NBA games to promote.
Due to this weekend’s NBA All-Star Game, the league won’t play regular-season games on Friday. Keep that in mind. But don’t worry. The All-Star Game takes place on Sunday. Every sports bettor figures to wager on and watch the NBA All-Star Game!
We add some marketing statements that you can use to promote the matchups.

Tips to Promote NBA Live Betting
Either use the statements we list above or variations of those statements to drum up interest before tip-off. Make sure to add a statement like this, “don’t forget to live bet on the ____ versus the____.”
You can provide a secondary marketing push by texting during the game. A few things about texting:
- Use player reports finding your top basketball bettors
- Don’t over-text during the game
- Be ready to start a conversation in case your players text back
- Make texts fun, positive, and exciting
Make sure your players know how much fun it is to live bet NBA games. Your players are likely to watch most, if not all, nationally broadcast NBA games. They’ll definitely wager on and watch the NBA All-Star Game on Feb. 16.
