When you are betting the first half of an NBA game against the spread it is almost the same exact bet as the moneyline example, but now you have to factor in the 1st half spread. If the first half spread is Celtics -2 / Lakers +2 and you place a bet on the Celtics that means you need the Celtics be ahead by 3 points by halftime. If the Celtics cover the bet and are leading by 3 or more points by the end of the first half you can cash that ticket! NBA first half odds are usually a bit worse than the odds for betting a full game but it’s dependent on the book you bet with.
