Early Sports Betting | 7/5 Opening Lines | Best Bets, Picks & Predictions

If you’ve been wondering what to bet on, here’s some helpful advice. NFL games feature player and team props. A player prop is like a total but includes more information. Examples of player props include Vikings Over 3.5 sacks, Carson Wentz Over 230.5 passing yards, and more. Seasonal futures are also popular, and relate to results and totals over the entire season. A team’s Most Valuable Player pick, for example, may be considered a team prop.

NFL moneylines are calculated around key numbers, such as the number of possessions each team will have in a game. A home field advantage is worth three points, and the odds for an underdog are usually -6 or -7.5. Proposition bet juice ranges from -110 to +100, and the game’s overall score can determine the payout. In addition to point spreads, some sportsbooks offer prop markets. In these cases, you can bet on certain in-game events, such as the total points scored by both teams.

While legalized sports betting is gaining momentum in many states across the US, there’s still a long way to go before it becomes law in most states. If you’re considering placing a bet on a particular game, you can follow its progress with the Action Network. This organization tracks the status of legislation efforts in all states and provides regular updates for users. If you’re living in an unlegal state, check in regularly to see if legislation changes.
