2023 holds a lot of excitement for basketball fans since it will host major global events. This article highlights the major basketball events that will take place in 2023. Let's get started!
FIBA Basketball World Cup
The co-hosting countries of Japan, the Philippines, and Indonesia will play host to the 19th edition of the FIBA Basketball World Cup from August 25 through September 10. The event will be held for the second time in both the Philippines and Japan.
The tournament will act as a qualifying event for the Summer Olympics in 2024. Along with France, the top two teams from Europe and America, as well as the teams from Africa, Asia, and Oceania, will qualify for the Olympics. The event will be divided into three stages, as it was the previous year (2019).
The FIBA World Cup Qualifiers are a 15-month process in which 80 countries from four zones (Asia and Oceania, Africa, the Americas, and Europe) compete in six windows. This is how the 32 men's national teams qualified. The first window opened in late November, with four more opening in 2022. The remaining spots will be chosen in the sixth and final window, which runs from February 20 to February 28.
In the first round of the competition, the 32 qualifying teams are divided into eight groups (A–H). Each team only plays the other team once. In the second round of the group stage, teams who progress from the first round will participate in four groups (I-L), with each team playing the other three teams in their group once. Finally, the top two teams from groups I through L will progress to the knockout round of the tournament.
NBA All-Star Game
During the NBA All-Star Weekend, players can take a break from the stress of the regular season and hang out with their friends in a fun environment. The 2023 NBA All-Star Game will be held in the Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah. The NBA All-Star weekend on-court events will begin on Friday, February 17, 2023, and will conclude on Sunday, February 19.
As usual, the players on each team will be chosen by a vote that includes fans, players, and people from the media. However, the coaches will decide who will serve as reserves for the game.
Basketball Winning Tips for the 2023 Season
If you're getting ready to wager on the 2023 basketball season, here are some tips to help you earn real money. They are as follows:
Always keep an eye on the NBA schedule
Before you do anything else while betting on NBA odds, you should carefully review the schedule. The NBA schedule is officially released months before the season begins. Because of this, as a bettor, you must be well-prepared and learn about the teams that will compete.
Investigate Line Movement
Before you place any bets, you should first examine the line movement. Assume you realize the line has shifted after betting on the rival side. If this is the case, the change must have come about because betting experts looked at the whole game instead of just going by what most people thought. As a result, it’s critical to verify the line movement before gambling.
Consider Home Underdogs
The underdog is a team that practically everyone roots for. There’s value in betting on the home underdog if you're interested in the point spread. To a larger extent, underdogs who play at home have a chance to win against the spread if the gap between their point total and the spread is not too large. The participants are only concerned with one thing: how the game will end, no matter how swiftly or slowly it begins.
Learn More About the Players
One of the things you should always do before a game is assess the team's condition, particularly the players. The injury reports are one thing you should look at. An injury to a major player may drastically affect the outcome of the game.
The basketball games in 2023 will be very exciting for punters. If you want to win more money in the NBA and FIBA betting markets, it’s best to be well-prepared. Because of the high degree of competition in these areas, preparation is essential. Remember to wager intelligently in order to avoid having more losses than gains.
