Betting on NFL Games Online

Betting on NFL and turning a profit are not mutually exclusive concepts, but one does not follow the other seamlessly either. You do need to have an NFL betting strategy in place in order to be able to maximize your wins and minimize your losses. The first step is to put aside a sum of money that you can dispose of for gambling – otherwise known as a bankroll – and bet from 2 percent to 5 percent of that money. For example, if your bankroll is $1,000 dollars, your wagers would range from $20 to $50. Novice bettors often make the mistake of upping their bets when they start winning or trying to make up for losses with bigger bets. As the saying goes, a fool and his money are soon parted.

NFL Betting Tips

One way to lose money fast when betting on NFL teams is to pick your favorites with your heart instead of with your brain. Supporting your hometown team can cause you a lot of grief as a fan, but it should not cost you money as a gambler. Remember that NFL betting is based on odds, not on teams. In other words, teams that you think will win (or cover the spread, etc.) rather than teams that you want to win. The reverse of this is bettors who wager on near every game each week. You should find the best plays and bet your 2% if they are small plays or your 5% if you really, really like them – if that means placing only a couple of bets, then that’s the way it goes.

Betting on the NFL the Right Way

Finding the best NFL betting plays means paying attention to the numbers. Casual gamblers often lose more than they win because half-a-point here and there makes no difference to them. Let’s say it’s 20 minutes till game time and you want to bet on the Dallas Cowboys -3, but by the time you are about to place your bet it’s -3.5. The smart bettor will reconsider at that point, but the average guy will bet it at -6 if that’s the number he sees, and he is more than likely to lose. Similarly, parlay wagering may seem very tempting what its big winnings, but you should play them wisely and limit them to no more than two teams at a given time.

NFL Bets: What to Keep in Mind

Another characteristic of the best NFL betting gamblers is that they know how to keep their heads cool during a losing streak. Once again, when the heart rules the mind people get careless and make bad decisions and they lose even more. This applies more to poker than NFL betting, but it’s still true: you have to know when to hold’em and when to fold’em. Likewise, smart bettors do not let themselves get carried away when they are on a roll. That’s why online sportsbooks are preferable to casinos; the latter have free drinks, which can cloud judgment and lead to poor choices.

NFL Betting Throughout the Game

In the past, if you wanted to bet on an NFL game, you had basically one option. You could pick who would win NFL games, whether they would cover, that kind of thing. Indeed, that was all you could find at even the best NFL betting sites.

Those days are long gone. Today, NFL bettors can bet on football games how they would like. So, you could bet on one team to win, of course. But, you could also bet on them to win the first half, or the first quarter, and so forth – that’s just some of the NFL betting action you can find here.

Indeed, there are football bets about deciding which teams are going to score first, who’ll score last, and so forth. Basically, if there’s a football bet you can think of, odds are you can find it at our site. We want to stand out from the rest of the NFL sportsbooks, offering something that none of the other NFL sportsbooks could. When you it comes to the best betting sites, there’s BetNow and there’s everyone else.

Bet on the NFL Team of Your Choice

We make it possible to bet on every game in the National Football League. Here, you’ll find the NFL Vegas odds for every game, no matter what. So, if you want to bet on championship teams like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (this was written when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were the defending champions; that may be different when you read this) you could.

However, you could also bet on the Washington Football Team, the Kansas City Chiefs, the Las Vegas Raiders, the Dallas Cowboys, the Baltimore Ravens, the New Orleans Saints, the Minnesota Vikings, the Seattle Seahawks, the Arizona Cardinals, the New England Patriots, the Chicago Bears, the Pittsburgh Steelers – and everyone else. Regular season, NFL playoffs, Tom Brady, NFL moneyline, you name it – there’s no such thing as a “risk free bet” but you can find all of the NFL lines throughout the NFL regular season (and into the NFL playoffs) right here.

Prop Betting and More

When people think of NFL betting and NFL betting sites, often, they think of the Super Bowl. Yes, there’s nothing like the Super Bowl in terms of online sports betting experiences. That’s the best betting on the NFL opportunity there is for everyone. However, NFL online betting throughout the regular season has plenty of seemingly “prop” bets as well.

For example, NFL Futures. These are a bit different than what you might find at other NFL betting sites, even the so-called best NFL betting sites. With these NFL futures bets, you’re betting on what you think is going to happen well ahead of time. Maybe you think the Kansas City Chiefs, for example, are going to win the AFC West. Perhaps you think it in April, so you bet it then to get the best odds.

Perhaps you have the New Orleans Saints winning the Super Bowl, or the Baltimore Ravens losing the Super Bowl to the Seattle Seahawks, or the Buffalo Bills beating the New England Patriots for the AFC East and then the Buffalo Bills going on to lose the Super Bowl. NFL Futures bets make it so that you can get in the best odds before the NFL season. They’re an entirely different experience than betting NFL lines.

NFL Futures Odds on More Than Just Teams

For many, when they think of what it means to “bet on NFL,” they think it means to bet on the NFL winners and so forth. That’s not how it works exclusively at our NFL site. Here, at our online betting site (unlike many other NFL gambling sites) you’ll be able to bet on players, too.

So, you could bet on one player or another to have a big game, or a big season, or rookie of the year, bet on NFL defensive player of the year, that kind of thing. These aren’t prop bets, exactly, unless you consider futures bets to bet prop bets. This is something you may not be able to find at other online betting sites, even if they call themselves the online sportsbook of the future or something similar.

Live Betting

Sports betting, as most know it, is before the game. Indeed, just about everyone’s NFL betting strategy is to get their bet in before the NFL games begin. This makes sense, NFL odds, after all, are built in for the beginning of the game, etc. The idea is that all sports betting ends when the game starts.

However, that’s just not how it is now with sports betting. Sports betting can continue on into the game. NFL betting sites don’t have to close just because the game has begin. Instead, we’re in a new era of sports betting. Specifically, live sports betting. This means that you can engage in sports betting even after kickoff.

So, with this, sports bettors can bet on what’s going on with one NFL team or another NFL team even after the football games have begun, even if they bet the NFL moneyline before this. The fun doesn’t have to stop when the game starts.
