Comments Off on What Bets Can You Place in NFL Games?
The National Football League (NFL) holds an annual regular season from every conference, where teams play to win and bring the legacy to their state. The regular season ends with the playoffs, and after the playoffs,  then comes to the Super Bowl.
If you live in the USA, you’ll know how huge of an event the Super Bowl is. Many people stand by and watch the game to witness the next big winner. 

As such, it has become an important event for sports fans. What’s more, you can be part of the historical events of the Super Bowl aside from watching them live.

You can try sports betting and place wagers on your favorite teams.

If you’ve been meaning to participate but don’t know how, here’s a list of different types of bets you can place.

Moneyline Betting 

Moneyline is a straightforward bet where you only need to put stakes on the team that you think will win the game. It’s the simplest type where you can also receive a considerable payout. 

When betting, take a look at the NFL odds to help you predict who will win an NFL match. Sportsbooks present the odds and show the list of teams who will likely win the game. By checking the odds, you’ll know who can win and bring home huge amounts of money.

Over/Under (Total) Betting 

The Over/Under betting is also known as the totals. The sportsbook displays a number that serves as the predicted combined score of the two playing teams. You’ll wager whether the final total score is above their set number or below that. This bet has its betting line where it says over/under or total so that no one would get confused.

However, if there are chances that the final score ends up being the same as the predicted total score, then the totals will be considered a push. A push means the bet is unsuccessful, and the bettors will be refunded.

Prop Betting 

On the other hand, prop betting is the type of NFL wager where one doesn’t need to stake on the final winners or the like. You’ll have to wager on the events or the occurrences within the game which don’t have any direct connections to the outcome. 

This means you’re only betting on what’s happening during the game. Prop betting is profitable and fun that people consider a popular side wager that bettors take aside from their primary bets. 

A few examples would be betting on someone who will score first, the total passing yard, or even betting for the coin toss. The prop is usually distinguished as a game prop, player prop, or team prop. These types of prop bets will also vary from what the sportsbook offers.

Spread Betting

In an attempt to even out the odds, sportsbooks have another betting line called point spread or spread. The sportsbook classifies two teams as favorite and underdog to make you understand easier in an NFL game. 

The favorite is the team that is regarded as someone with higher possibilities of winning. Meanwhile, the underdog is considered as someone with low chances of winning.

In spread betting, if you place a bet on the favorite team, you must know they are given a point they need to cover as they win the game. In other words, they’ll need to win by certain points for you to win your bet.

On the other hand, if you bet on the underdog team, they’ll only need to win over the favorites outright or lose by only a few points.

Futures Betting 

Another exciting bet that you can participate in is Futures betting. As its name suggests, you’re betting on the event that will take place soon in the future. It could be the NFL playoffs or the Super Bowl. Bettors that participate in this type of wager usually place their stakes early in the season since sportsbooks also accept futures bets as early as the first week.

Since the futures don’t take place until the season ends, many unforeseen events can occur. Thus, the future betting risk can also be relatively high. So, you can get a considerable amount of payout if you win. 

Parlay Betting 

If you want to heighten your betting experience with the NFL, you can try to parlay betting. This type of betting requires you to place wagers on multiple bets. These bets will be considered as a leg of your betting ticket.

The only way you can payout is if you win every leg. If one of your bets loses, you lose your entire parlay bet, but you can bring home a bigger payout if you win.

Final Thoughts

After you get the concept of betting in the NFL Moneyline, you’ll better understand the other types of NFL bets.

It takes time to learn what bet works well for you, so you don’t have to hurry.

Take your time in mastering what you know, and sooner you’ll get to win huge payouts!
