NFL Football Betting and Super Bowl Odds
Football Betting is the most popular form of sports gambling and when the nfl playoffs and the super bowl come around, the betting gets even more heated. NFL betting trumps all other sports on the betting board. Football gambling comes in many different forms.
The sportsbook accepts NFL gambling wagers for regular season games, halftimes, futures for divisional and conference championships including odds to win the Super Bowl.
NFL gambling on "sides" is the most basic form of football wagering. When betting on sides, you are basically taking a team and laying points with either the favorite or taking points with the underdog.
Sunday sees the Cleveland browns, who haven't been at their greatest to date, hoping to find some form as they pay a visit to the Reliant Stadium in Houston to face the Houston Texans.
Atlanta at Indianapolis. If the Colts had not given the Falcons such a hard time in the past, this game would be a fairly easy one to predict.
Super Bowl odds are usually beaten by the Steelers as they have won more Super Bowl betting championships than any other team in pro football history.
Super Bowl odds handicappers may have to change how they evaluate teams and matchups as the Green Bay Packers are a unique Super Bowl betting champion.
The football betting pointspread is the way that the sportsbook tries to even out the betting action towards both sides. As an example, in the February 2008 Super Bowl, the NFL betting pointspread was New England -12.5 points.
Since New England was undefeated the football betting public was naturally gravitating their way so the pointspread was made rather large to entice an even amount of football bets the Giants way. New England would have had to have won the game by 13 or more points to cover the football betting spread.
The Giants won 17-14 to "cover" the spread. Even if the Giants lost, they would have had to have lost by 13 points or MORE to lose the wager. For those who like to choose sides but don't like pointspread football bets there is the alternative of the money line.
Money line football betting is where you chose the straight up winner by laying or taking odds rather than points. Another highly popular form of football betting would be "totals" also known as "over/unders".
In that aforementioned Super Bowl, the total posted on the board was 54.5, which meant that the combined score would have to exceed that number to go "over". The Giants 17-14 win combined for a total of 31, which went "under" the total.
Types Of NFL Football Bets
A form of football betting that is exploding in popularity is "halves". This is where you can wager on the first or the second half of a game. Many gamblers love half time wagering as they can often get a bargain on the team that they originally wanted in comparison to the regular full game line.
"Futures" football betting is where you can wager on a team's odds to win the Super Bowl, their conference or even their division. You can also wager on the over/under for their total amount of wins for a season!
Proposition football betting, known as "props" is highly popular for the Super Bowl but other big games as well. You can wager on a player's total yards, scores, sacks, and countless other items.
