How to bet on NBA legally in Colorado: Sportsbooks, apps and more

The NBA playoffs are just around the corner.

The regular season ends April 10 with the top six teams in each conference earning playoff berths. Seventh- through 10th-place teams will get a shot at winning their way into the postseason through the Play-In Tournament.

The ninth-place team will host the 10th-place team from their respective conference in an elimination game with the loser going home and the winner staying alive. The seventh-place team will host the eighth-place team, also in just one game, with the winner claiming the conference’s No. 7 seed.

The losing squad will then host the winner of the “9-10 matchup” in an elimination game for the conference’s No. 8 seed.

For those looking to bet on the NBA games in the state of New Jersey, there are legal online sportsbooks which allow you to do so.
