No team has officially been eliminated from the NBA playoffs, but that doesn’t mean every franchise will be giving its all down the stretch. Nine teams in the league have won less than 40% of their games and are prime candidates for tanking.
Tanking is a dirty word in the NBA, but winning is not the best option for teams out of the playoff race. Knowing franchises are incentivized to lose, how can bettors profit from tanking in the NBA?
Historically, there has been value buying low on the league’s worst teams. Though that isn’t the case late in the season.
