An important thing for every sports bettor is to have knowledge about the events schedules. For NBA there is no exception, that’s why at Online Betting Sports we share with you the latest news, updates and information about the NBA schedule.
Brief Introduction to the NBA Schedule
As the 2021-2022 NBA season wraps up, NBA fans and bettors can’t wait for the 2022-2023 season to start! Before the next season is underway, there is an entire almost 5-month long offseason! After an offseason filled with interesting trades and signings, the following season will begin sometime in October.
The NBA schedule should be released sometime this summer, from early July to early August. There is no specific time frame because Adam Silver and the NBA want to wait until most major trades and signings occur to best schedule games for significant days like Christmas Day, MLK Jr. Day, and others.
NBA odds for sports bettors should be released soon after the release of the schedule so bettors can place their NBA picks! Many different NBA picks can be selected: the 2022/23 NBA Finals champion, conference & division winners, regular-season win totals, and many others!
Understanding the NBA Schedule
Throughout most modern-day NBA history, the NBA season has remained fairly uniform. The season begins in October, continues for the next four-ish months until the All-Star Weekend, then continues for another three-ish months until the playoffs begin in April, which lasts usually two entire months, and the season comes to a conclusion in June
Furthermore, every week within the NBA will consist of several primetime games:
- TNT’s coverage on Tuesdays and Thursdays (during the latter half of the NBA season to avoid conflict with Thursday Night Football)
- ESPN’s coverage on Wednesdays
- NBA TV’s coverage on most Fridays and Mondays
- ABC’s coverage on Saturday/Sunday (in coordination with NFL Sundays)
Furthermore, the NBA is known for its Christmas Day specials shown on ESPN and ABC and its MLK Day specials shown on TNT.
For those interested in NBA odds, for betting purposes, the betting odds to win the 2022/23 NBA Finals have the Warriors/Nets/Celtics tied for first at +500 and the Clippers next at +600. Now, you must be excited about next season!
