How to Place NFL Wagers
NFL betting is very extensive with many betting options available. Spread betting is by far the most popular form of NFL betting, with money line and over/under bets also being placed a good amount. Some other NFL wagers you can place include NFL futures wagers or a plethora of NFL prop bets. Each of the NFL betting options are explained in greater detail below.
NFL Spread Betting
Spread betting is the most popular form of NFL betting because it evens the playing field which allows bets on underdogs to win more often and makes the payouts for bets on favourites more favourable. In the NFL the difference between two teams can be quite dramatic and spread betting allows a bettor to easily wager on either team depending on the spread given.
In NFL spread betting the underdog is given a handicap of a certain number of points. For a spread bet on the underdog to win they must either win the game outright or lose by fewer points than the spread. On the flip side the favourite must win by more points than the spread amount in order for a spread wager on the favourite to payout. Here is an example:
Cleveland Browns +12 (-110)
New England Patriots -12 (-110)
In this example the New England Patriots are significant 12 point favourites. This means that for a spread bet on the Pats to pay out they must win by 13 or more points. Meanwhile, a spread bet on the Browns will pay out if they either win, or lose by 11 or fewer points. If New England wins by exactly 12 points then the result is a push and the bets are refunded.

NFL Money Line Betting
Money line betting is also available for NFL football games and simply involves picking which team will win the game. If the team you choose wins then your wager pays out. The payout will depend on the odds associated with each outcome. A wager on the favourite will obviously pay less than a wager of the same amount on the underdog. Here is a quick example:
Cleveland Browns +525
New England Patriots -650
In this example a wager of $100 on the Browns would win $525 for a total payout of $625 if the Browns managed to pull off the upset. On the other hand to win $100 betting on the Patriots a wager of $650 would have to be risked and a payout of $750 would be returned if they came through and won the game.
NFL Over/Under Betting
Over/under betting is another popular betting choice for NFL bettors. It involves wagering on the total number of points to be scored in the game. The bookmaker will choose a total number of points for a specific game and bettors can then wager on whether more or less points will be scored in the game. Here is the example from the Cleveland vs New England game.
Over 42.5 -110
Under 42.5 -110
If you think 43 or more points will be scored then you place an ‘over’ wager and if you believe 42 or fewer points will be scored then you place an ‘under’ wager. When the over/under total is a whole number the bet will be pushed if the game ends with exactly that amount of points.
NFL Prop Betting
NFL prop bets include any wagers that are not directly affected by the outcome of the game.
Prop betting on the NFL is very popular throughout the season, but it takes on a whole new level during the Super Bowl. Some of the most famous prop bets in recent years include how many times Kim Kardashian would be shown on television, what song will the band play at the end of their half time show and of course the coin toss.
Prop bets are more often placed on player or team statistics. You can find prop bets on pretty much every stat that is kept from an NFL game because fans are so involved and are interested in the details of the game. To learn more check out the NFL prop betting page!
NFL Futures Betting
NFL futures bets include any wagers where the outcome is decided in the future from multiple events. The best example would be wagering on which team will win the Super Bowl at the beginning of the season. Some other NFL futures bets could include which team will win a division or whether or not a team will make playoffs. Futures wagers can be a lot of fun because you can follow the team throughout the season.
