NFL Betting

When it comes to American Football betting, there isn't a league in the world bigger than the National Football League. The American Football league that splits the 32 best teams in America into two conferences, with the American Football Conference and National Football Conference both hosting 16 teams apiece. Which means there are up to 16 games you can bet on across the weekend and there are a lot of NFL betting odds to be consumed.

NFL Betting Markets

NFL betting markets can largely be split up into three different areas, handicaps, player specifics and match specifics. Handicap bets are the type of bets where you give one team an advantage, so for example, if you believe a team will dominate the Super Bowl, you could win with enhanced odds by adding handicaps of -5.5+. Player-specific bets are bets that are related to player-specific events in the match such as passing yards, running yards and touchdowns. You can bet on the wide variety of possibilities for dozens of players in every game. Finally, we have match-specific bets and these are the bets that cover the winner of the game and team-related events such as scoreline and the score during quarters.

Some of the most popular betting markets you can find for the NFL can be found below.

  • Moneyline Winner Bet: Bet on who will win the match or by winning by certain stages of the game.
  • Handicap: Bet on a team to win despite being given a points disadvantage on your bet.
  • Total Points: Bet on how many points will be scored during the game.
  • Parlays: A combination of bets specific to American Football.
  • First Half: Bet on what will happen in the first half of the game.
  • Quarter Bet: Bet on what will happen in each of the four quarters of the game.
  • Touchdown Bets: Bet on the number of touchdowns there will be in a game and who will earn those touchdowns.
  • Player specific: Bets that are based on players receiving, passing and rushing.

Why back NFL betting Handicaps?

When done correctly, Handicap markets can be some of the most profitable markets in the world of sports betting. However, it is also one of the most difficult to win because your team don't just have to win, they have to win comfortably. This means that if even the slightest thing goes wrong, your bet is likely to lose. However, when teams of varying strengths come together, the Handicap levels the playing field and really improves the chances of high payouts.

There are two main benefits to these bets. Firstly, you can select your handicap, there are multiple variants available for players ranging from +1.5 to 10.5+ and even higher! So with this much control, you can place handicap bets of varying amounts for every game during the regular season. The second is that with research, you can find the perfect bet for you, if you know that a team averages 32 points a game and concedes an average of 27, you know that over the course of the season, that team to win +4.5 is a good bet to make.

NFL Betting Odds

If you're a regular, experienced bettor, then you'll be aware of the different betting odds available at Bet UK. These are fractional, decimal and American odds. The worst thing you could possibly do while placing a bet is choose betting odds that you're unfamiliar with but on occasion, with American sports, you will find betting tips that use American odds, something that doesn't make sense. If you're familiar with betting odds in a decimal format and you're looking to place a bet on the Baltimore Ravens Vs the Dallas Cowboys and your betting tip is how many yards the ball will be thrown, find the market in your preferred odds format.

There are also a number of factors that need to be considered when our players look to place NFL bets. Always look at how a team is performing in the regular season, as you'll often find all the information you need to place a calculated bet in the standings. Statistics don't show everything, but they're a solid basis for betting. For outright bets, consider long-form and you can use the pre-season to get an idea of which teams are looking on form for the coming season.
