Prop bets are one type of NFL game bet that focuses on star players’ performance during a game. These bets will usually be on how many points each team will score during a game. For example, you can bet on the Vikings to record more than three sacks, or the Philadelphia Eagles to have more passing yards than their opponent. Similarly, you can wager on which team will score the most points in a given game, or which player will record the most rushing yards.
The weather has a major impact on NFL games. A team that practices in nice weather will have a different result in cold, windy, or wet weather. Windy conditions will disrupt a passing game, while wet conditions will favor a run-heavy team. Even though inclement weather doesn’t directly affect the score, it does have a dramatic effect on point totals. Inclement weather usually leads to lower scoring games and quicker games.
In order to place a bet, you need to know how to interpret a sportsbook’s standard betting table. In most cases, the table will have two lines for each team: the Point Spread and Moneyline. Point Spread and Over/Under (Total) bets are also popular. The numbers for each team will be shown as positive or negative (-). The minus sign indicates a favorite team, while the plus sign represents the underdog team.
