The NFL is one of the most popular sports not just in the US, but all over the world. Betting on the NFL means you can add some excitement to the game, whether you’re betting on your favourite team or player, or placing a future bet on an event like the Super Bowl — betting allows you to add an element of anticipation to your favourite sport. If you’re new to sports betting, getting to know NFL betting odds, how to bet and what to expect from the upcoming season is important. Read on to find out more!
How to bet on the NFL
Knowing how to bet on the NFL is essential before getting started. The NFL season is shorter than a lot of other sports, but don’t worry! There are a huge number of bets to be made each week, and you can even bet before the season kicks off, with NFL futures, which we’ll take a closer look at below. You can place all kinds of bets from Moneyline, to point spread and over/under bets. Bet on the winner, the margin of victory a team will have at the end of a game or bet on the total number of points scored.
If you’re just getting started on NFL betting, or sports betting in general, a moneyline bet is the place to start. You simply bet on the team you think will be victorious. Generally, if you bet on the underdog, the pay-out will be more than if you bet on the favourite. You can have fun with this, bet on your favourite team or the team you think will win.
As previously mentioned, you can bet on NFL futures at any point in the year, and they tend to be bets placed on an event that won’t happen for a while — so you’re essentially predicting something happening in the future. Some of the events that you can bet on with NFL futures include Super Bowl champions, the conference or division winner, as well as team win totals.
One of the reasons these bets are interesting is because you can’t predict what will happen over the course of the season, for example, you could bet on the most valuable player, and they could then become injured. The odds are higher at the start of the season, so if your bet is correct, your pay-out will be substantial.
To help you with your NFL future betting, here are a few predictions of what 2022 may hold.
The Jets Will Soar
An improvement could be on the way for the New York jets this year, with three drafted players all at the top of their games professionally and positionally, and with youth on their side, we could see the Jets take off. The draft has helped the team when it comes to improvements in overall talent, so with this new accumulation of players, the Jets luck might just be in for 2022.
Flying high: The Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles found their feet last season, which makes them a team to watch in 2022. With new additions to their team like Nakobe Dean and Cam Jurgens, who will provide the Eagles with more depth as a centre. Overall, it’s said that the NFC is weaker in 2022 than it has been, giving the Eagles a good chance of winning the NFC East outright.
After winning the Super Bowl, the Los Angeles Rams are still on a high, but that might not last long as the way they’ve built their roster could mean they struggle in the coming season. They have one of the most exciting rosters, packed full of high performing players, but it is said that they will struggle to improve on last year’s team. They have free agents to be resigned or replaced, and the quality of the players in NFC west is also working against them. How will the Rams fair in 2022?
