When it comes to sports betting, the over/under line can be the key to your winning bet. If you bet on four teams to cover a 1.5-point spread, you’ll be guaranteed to win two to three times your stake. Over/under bets can be a great way to make money by following the line movement in real time. The over/under line is usually a 1 to 1 risk-reward ratio.
NFL games have several different types of outcomes, including team and player-based bets. You can bet on individual player and team totals with props, much like the over/under markets. A few examples of team and player props include the Vikings Over 3.5 sacks and Carson Wentz Over 230.5 passing yards. The other type of bet is the futures market, which involves predicting the totals or results for a season, such as the Chiefs winning the Super Bowl, or Patrick Mahomes finishing as the NFL MVP.
