Popular NFL futures markets

NFL betting markets are among the most plentiful of any sport in the world – so why limit yourself to simple game day wagers? Here's a detailed breakdown of Sportsbook Review's coverage of NFL futures odds and picks:

Regular Season

Super Bowl

How to use SBR's odds tables

Whether you're a novice bettor looking to learn about NFL odds tables, or a more seasoned player intent on getting the most out of your Sportsbook Review odds experience, we have everything you need right here.

Our NFL odds layout features many of the best sportsbooks in your area, with the most up-to-date odds available for every game and futures market. Looking to gain an instant edge? Seek out any odds listed in blue; that identifies the best value for a particular play.

Each set of game odds includes three important additional features:

  • The Favorite feature (indicated by a star to the left of the team names) lets bettors prioritize specific matchups on their main Odds page; simply click the star, and that game becomes a favorite.
  • The Matchup feature (indicated by the word "Matchup" to the right of the star) is a stathead's delight, transporting interested bettors to a page fully devoted to trends, comparisons and other game details for the game in question. Best of all, the Matchup page includes the best values for spread, total and moneyline plays.
  • The Odds History feature (indicated by parallel wavy lines to the right of the Matchup link) takes bettors through every major odds development since the lines first opened. Players can alternate between a variety of sportsbooks and quickly identify every time the spread or total shifted.

How to read NFL odds

NFL odds might seem like eye charts to the uninitiated – but we can take the stress out of betting on the wildly popular league. Here's how to read NFL odds:

  • For moneylines, there is almost always a favorite (the team expected to win) and an underdog (the team expected to lose). The favorite will carry odds that have a minus sign beside them; let's use -150 as an example. In this situation, you would need to wager $150 to win $100, since the team you're betting on is considered the surer bet. Conversely, let's place +125 odds on the underdog; you would only need to wager $100 to win $125 since that team is a riskier play in the eyes of the oddsmakers.
  • For point spreads and totals, you are far more likely to see the odds at an identical -110. This is the standard for NFL wagers that are considered a "coin flip" by the sportsbooks. Using the above logic, we can see that bettors need to wager $110 to win $100, but in this case, the payout is the same regardless of which side the bettor chooses. As for why the odds aren't truly "even" in this case, the additional 10 cents on either side falls under what we call vig – essentially, the tax that sportsbooks levy for accepting a wager.

We have more on moneylines, spreads and totals in the next section.

How to bet on the NFL

NFL fans will be treated to a whopping 285 regular-season and playoff games this season, culminating with Super Bowl 59 at the Caesars Superdome in New Orleans on Feb. 9, 2025.

Every one of those games will feature hundreds of betting chances between pre-game markets and in-game opportunities. And understanding each of the main bet types is critical to making sure you can responsibly add some betting flavor to your NFL Sundays.

Point Spread Betting

The point spread is a betting innovation sportsbooks use to make a matchup more even.

In this situation, the favored team is given a points handicap bettors must factor in when making their wagers; for example, the San Francisco 49ers are a 5.5-point favorite for Week 1 vs. the New York Jets, which means that anyone betting the 49ers on the spread will need San Francisco to win by more than 5.5 points in order for the bet to cash.

Conversely, if the Niners win by fewer than 5.5 points, or the Jets win outright, all spread bets on New York will cash.

Check out our detailed guide to spread betting for tips and strategies.

Moneyline Betting

While spread betting might seem daunting to some, wagering on the moneyline is as simple as it gets. Here, the bettor chooses which team he or she thinks is going to win. A team victory is a betting victory, no matter the margin of victory.

There are, however, some caveats. Teams that are heavily favored might be tempting to pick, but players should bear in mind that the heftier the favorite, the worse the payout – meaning it will take a much higher bet to secure a decent return than if the matchup were more even.

There's also the matter of line shopping, which refers to the practice of scouring multiple sports betting sites for the best price. Not all moneylines are equal across all sportbooks, so having access to multiple betting apps is a strong strategic play, even for casual bettors.

Our comprehensive guide to moneyline betting answers a lot of additional questions novice players might have about this bet type.

Totals Betting

Totals (or over/under) betting compares favorably with moneylines when it comes to the ease with which bettors can both understand and wager on them.

Each NFL game carries a total that sports betting sites assign based on how many points they think will be scored. You, the player, then decide if the actual number of total points in the game will finish above or below the sportsbook's number.

But that's far from the only application; in fact, the beauty of the totals bet is that it can be applied to dozens of NFL props markets, including team stats like points, touchdowns and field goals, and individual player stats like rushing yards, interceptions and catches.

Prop Betting

They're the games-within-the-games – and they're among the fastest-rising NFL bet types when it comes to overall popularity.

Prop (or proposition) betting shifts bettors' focus away from game outcomes and squarely on in-game outcomes involving players or teams. And no sport caters to the hard-core prop bettor like the NFL, which offers hundreds of prop markets for every game on the schedule.

The key to successful prop betting lies in specialization. With so many options to choose from on any given Sunday, even more experienced gamblers would be wise to focus on specific types of props where their knowledge is strongest.

It's also critical to be able to quickly identify value – and as mentioned earlier, having access to multiple prop betting sites is an easy way to ensure that you're always getting the best possible odds for a given prop bet.

Parlay Betting

When it comes to NFL bet types with wide-scale appeal, absolutely nothing compares to parlay betting – and that makes it the most divisive wagering category of all.

A parlay combines two or more individual wagers (or "legs") into one bet, offering a larger payout than a standard bet but with a lower chance of success since players need every bet on their ticket to win. Bettors can even combine outcomes from the same matchup onto one card; these "same-game parlays" have exploded in popularity in recent years.

Many traditionalists in the sports betting space believe that parlay betting is too much like playing the lottery, and will discourage players from building NFL parlays altogether. But with parlays making up the largest share of betting handle for nearly every sportsbook during the NFL season, it's clear where the public wants to spend its money.

Our guide to parlay betting provides more info on parlay bet types, how to understand parlay odds, and strategies for parlay wagering.

Futures Betting

The NFL calendar is shorter than just about every other major North American professional sport – and the offseason can feel like eternity to bet-hungry football fans.

Fortunately, the NFL offers a wide array of futures betting opportunities to sate bettors' appetite year-round. Bettors can decide on their choice of Super Bowl winner as far as 12 months in advance, while individual awards markets are available for most of the year.

Futures markets are among the simplest of them all: Choose the player or team you think will win, and if they do, then your ticket is victorious. and as an added bit of strategy, several of the top sports betting sites are now allowing bettors to cash out a futures wager – meaning you can accept a lower payout for settling your wager before the outcome is decided.

Some bettors will use this option to make futures bets that don't necessarily have a good shot at succeeding, but are likely to see shorter odds in time, setting the stage for those players to accept a cash-out for more than their initial wager.

How to choose NFL betting sites

Knowing pigskin is only part of what will make you a successful NFL bettor.

As with making any important purchase in life, the ability to shop around for the best NFL odds is a significant difference maker in this space. And we have several suggestions on how to find the best NFL betting sites available in your area:

  • Make quality of odds a priority. Not only do you want to have access to the sportsbooks that carry the best NFL odds on a regular basis, you want those odds to be clearly displayed so you never have to struggle to see which book has the best price.
  • Take advantage of bonus offers. Making sure you're dialed in to the best sportsbook promos is a low-risk way to ensure you're opening your NFL betting journey from the best possible starting point. Pay particular attention to offers being made just before the start of the NFL season, when sports betting sites are most actively looking for new customers.
  • Put stock in a sportsbook's reputation. The sportsbook selection process can be stressful and intimidating – even more so if it feels like the site in question isn't doing its best to protect its customers. Our responsible gaming guide takes readers through every major sportsbooks' approach to responsible gaming, so you'll know who you can trust most.
  • Lean on trustworthy reviews – like ours! If you just aren't sure whether a sportsbook is right for you, let the experts help. Sportsbook Review has thoroughly tested dozens of marquee NFL betting sites to find the best of the bunch – so whether you're looking for the top parlay betting sites, or a review of a major player like DraftKings, we have you covered.

FAQs

Sportsbooks are expecting a Super Bowl rematch based on the most recent NFL odds. The defending-champion Kansas City Chiefs and NFC-champion San Francisco 49ers are the co-favorites at the majority of marquee sports betting sites, ranging from +550 to +650.

An over/under, or totals bet, requires bettors to wager on whether an NFL game will finish with more or fewer total points than the number set by the sportsbook. If, for example, the Buffalo Bills-Miami Dolphins game carries a total of 45.5, bettors who select the over will need the teams to combine for 46 or more points to cash a winning ticket.

While there are several NFL bet types that beginner players should have no trouble making, the moneyline bet is widely considered to be the simplest of all. Bettors pick which team they think is going to win – and if that team emerges victorious, so does the player.

A team carrying a +7 designation in point spread betting is a seven-point underdog. Anyone betting on the +7 line is a winner if that team loses by less than seven points; a loss by eight or more points means a defeated bet, while a seven-point setback is a "push", meaning the bettor receives his or her original stake back.

You will find odds on each week’s NFL games on this page, from Week 1 NFL lines to NFL playoff odds and Super Bowl betting options. Odds for all markets will update frequently throughout the season, so check back here often.
