When it comes to betting on NFL football, there are several different types of games you can place a bet on. Over/under betting involves betting on a team’s total points scored over an assigned time. This type of bet is similar to a total in basketball; for example, a team could be favored by three points to win by four. There are also player-based props, which are similar to totals. Such picks include the Vikings Over 3.5 sacks and Carson Wentz Over 230.5 passing yards. In addition, futures are based on a season’s overall results or totals. For instance, the Kansas City Chiefs could win the Super Bowl or Patrick Mahomes could be crowned the MVP of the NFL.
While legalized sports betting is making strides across the U.S., there is still a long way to go before it is available in all 50 states. A great way to stay updated on the latest developments in your state is to follow The Action Network, which tracks all legislation efforts across the nation. You can sign up for their newsletter to receive detailed updates on the latest legislation. In the meantime, you can also check out The Action Network’s sports betting news page for the latest information on the latest legislation.
When betting on NFL games, it’s important to know that there are many ways to hedge your bet. While betting on the point spread can give you a guaranteed profit, betting on players or teams on the moneyline gives you the option to hedge your bets and bet on other teams. If you have a favorite team, the moneyline for that team tends to be smaller than it should be. If you live in Sin City, you might find that the favorite is placed at -200 odds but that drops to -300 when people imagine them winning. Therefore, it’s much easier to win when betting on the underdog.
