The weekly sports NBA live betting list for February 20 through February w23, 2020 is upon us. Check it out and get ready to promote these wagers to your players.
NBA Basketball Games – Feb. 20 through Feb. 23, 2020
On Sunday, Feb. 17 the best players in the NBA throw down at the 2020 NBA All-Star Game. The following week, the National Basketball Association always takes a few days off. This year, play resumes on Thursday, Feb. 20. That gives online bookies 4-days of NBA games.
4-days of NBA games are plenty. Bookies shouldn’t notice too big of a wagering drop off. Even if they notice a drop-off, they can make up profit lost by promoting live betting. Live betting on NBA games can boost profits in a big way. Because players are most likely to wager on games they can watch, we’ve listed the top televised NBA matchups for the week.
We’ve added marketing messages for each game. You can use the messages as is. If you wish, tweak to your desire.
Per head agents should promote live betting on each of these games. If you’re a Boss Action agent who doesn’t know much about live betting, don’t worry. We provide tips at the end of the list.
