Among the many forms of sports betting are those based on player or team performance. NFL games include prop bets based on player or team performance in the game. In most games, you can place a wager on who will score the most points, total points scored, or how many sacks the opposing team will get. NFL game futures are related to season totals and results. For example, you can place a wager on the Chiefs to win the Super Bowl, or Patrick Mahomes to finish as the MVP of the team.
The pace of play is another important factor to consider. A slow paced game can result in a low over/under number. The over market tends to book too much sports action. If both teams score more than the projected points, “under” may be the right choice. A good example of this is the Ravens-Browns game last year, which had a 50.5 point total. This team is one of the slowest teams in the NFL. Hence, betting on the Under was a winning option.
Another aspect that can affect line movement is player injury. When key players are injured, the odds may change. Injuries or the return of stars can affect game odds. You can monitor injuries and player health through the sports betting injury reports. In addition, you can follow the sportsbook lines to find out which teams are underdogs. Regardless of the type of bet you make, you should always look for an advantage when placing a bet on a certain team.
