Football Betting Explained
How to wager on the NFL? A wide range of bet types are available: moneyline (straight up), point spread or against the spread, totals, parlays, teasers, futures, props, etc. football bettors are spoiled for choice. Literally, there is something for everyone, novice and sharps alike.
If betting types and picks to bet on the NFL can vary, well, the approach to betting on football also varies greatly. Some sports gamblers like to specialize in a particular type of bet while others prefer to run the gamut, placing wagers with different types of bets. Some simply turn to NFL consensus picks only.
As a rule, whatever the choice wager type or approach taken, success and profitability in football betting is enhanced when discipline, consistency and sound betting strategy is followed.
Best NFL Picks Against the Spread
Arguably, NFL picks ATS are the most in-demand of all the types of football wagers. What makes spread betting ideal for American football is its ability to level the playing field, particularly when looking at lopsided matchups. In a nutshell, the emphasis isn’t on picking the winning team but rather betting on the amount of points by which a team wins or loses a game.
In almost every major sporting league around the world the level of talent, skill and quality from team to team differs greatly. The gap between the best and the worst can be vast. However, NFL picks vs. spread are the game’s great leveller, allowing bettors to place a bet on either a favorite or underdog with a measure of confidence and optimism.
NFL Picks Straight Up
The simplest and most straightforward type of bet is the moneyline bet. For the uninitiated sports bettor, it’s a great place to start. Let’s face it, as far as concepts go, there’s nothing simpler than trying to predict the outright winner.
That said, betting moneyline odds is popular with all bettors — and never more so when a cheeky flutter on an underdog pays out handsomely. In fact, it’s not uncommon to find the best NFL picks of the week to feature a straight up bet from time to time.
NFL Betting Over/Under the Total
Over and above bets on straight up and point spread betting, bettors can also bet on scores (totals). Betting game totals (the sum total of a game’s score) or team totals (individual total team score) involves making NFL over under predictions, where a bettor decides to bet OVER or UNDER a total on offer. When a game winner is in doubt, NFL score predictions offer a great wagering alternative for football fans to sink their teeth into.
NFL 2021 Season
In a season like no other due to the global coronavirus pandemic, Tom Brady, at the age of 43, emerged triumphant against the odds to win a record seventh Super Bowl title, leading the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a 31-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in SBLV at Raymond James Stadium Raymond James Stadium on Sunday, February 7, 2021.
The NFL’s experience in the face of an unprecedented pandemic, navigating a path to destination Super Bowl LV without so much of a hiccup, should act as an invaluable blueprint for NFL Teams in the next season should the public health crises continue in some way, shape or form next. Several key changes are expected in 2021 though, including a shortened preseason and an expanded regular season that’ll include 17 NFL games. These changes are subject to new television contracts with major networks being agreed to in the offseason.
