How to Bet On The NFL

The NFL is one of the most popular sporting organizations in the world. This has translated into the league becoming one of the most bet on sporting events in the world. There are two common types of NFL online betting options at your disposal.

Betting against the spread – It’s quite simple to bet on NFL spreads. You have two teams and the favorite is indicated by the negative number in parenthesis. If you bet on the New York Jets (-3.5) against the Buffalo Bills, you are predicting that the Jets will beat the Bills by more than 3 and half points. If that outcome happens, you win your NFL point spread bet.

Moneyline wagers – Moneyline wagers involve picking the winner straight up regardless of the point spread. If you pick the underdog, you will earn odds on your money if you pick the correct winner. If you see wagering lines that look like this:

Pittsburgh Steelers (-140) at Miami Dolphins (+120)

That would indicate that for every $1.40 you bet on the Steelers, you would win $1. If you bet $1 on the Dolphins and Miami wins, you would earn $1.20 for every dollar bet on that team to win straight up.
