There is no sport more popular in the world of wagering than NFL Betting. Bettors can bet on games, individual teams’ performance, futures and props all season long – and even in the off-season – in the National Football League.
The most popular forms of NFL Betting can be divided into three main categories, and any bettor who wants to make money on the NFL should get to know these three areas of betting. They are point spreads, moneylines, and over/under totals.
For decades, the most popular form of NFL Betting has been point spreads. How often have you heard bettors asking questions like, “What’s the spread?” or “How many points are they giving up,” or “Do you think they’ll cover?” These all have to do with points spreads, which essentially means one team is favored to beat another by a certain number of points.
But many bettors also like the NFL Betting moneyline, which is basically a straightforward bet in which the person is picking which team will win the game, regardless of the point differential. The problem with moneyline betting is that sometimes one team is so heavily favored over another that bettors will have to pay $3 or $4 just to make $1 – in other words, the odds are 1-3 or 1-4 or higher.
Many people enjoy playing the over/under, or totals. In fact, there are some whose favorite form of NFL Betting is over/unders.
No matter what, NFL Betting fans cannot go wrong consulting a professional handicapper for their bets, like Scott Matthews of SM Picks.
