NFL Prop Betting Markets: Packers vs. Seahawks

The following are nine examples of NFL betting markets offered in the page broken down by the category of scoring props. These wagers all involve a game score update of some kind, including teams to add points first and during different intervals of the game.

Scoring Prop Wagers

Team to score first
Green Bay Packers +140
Seattle Seahawks -150
Team to score last
Green Bay Packers +115

In the first market — team to score first — the high side of the return on the Packers is +140. This means a $100 wager pays $140. The lower side – and with favorites the lower the less you have to risk to win a value of X or more – a $150 wager returns $100 on the Seahawks being the team to score points first. These points do not have to necessarily come from a touchdown or field goal, a safety also qualifies. Hunting for a better line is taken out of the equation by utilizing the NFL Prop Bets page.

In some cases, a given proposition bet may be unique to one sportsbook. If there is not a consensus best line, the wagering market and its current price will be listed in the proposition bet page. For example, one betting site offers odds on if there will be a score recorded in the opening minute of tonight’s game, which returns +1450 ($100 pays $1,450) on the ‘yes’ and is listed at -4050 ($4,050 pays $100) on the ‘no’.

Similar to scoring props and much like what is required in fantasy football, team performance markets are spread by betting sites and usually offer more variety in pricing than some of the more straight-forward yes and no markets. The current line for the longest touchdown in the game is 44.5 — with the over priced at -115 ($115 wager pays $100) and the under at -105 ($105 wager pays $100). Where applicable, performance markets being traded at more than one online sportsbook have the best line labeled on the page.

Futures Betting markets

In addition to the straight-up markets, the page lists futures markets which have action for the whole season. These markets include the winner of Super Bowl XLIX, winners of each individual conference, MVP, Rookie of Year, and more. Outright markets such as Super Bowl and conference winner are fed in through dynamic widgets which update in real-time as odds are adjusted by online sportsbooks. Red signifies a change in the last 15 seconds, orange in the last 30 seconds, and yellow in the last 45 seconds.

The NFL Prop Bets directory will be updated throughout the 2014-15 NFL season.
