NFL Betting Odds Basics
When betting on the NFL, almost every bet will come with -110 odds, expressed in American odds format.
Some sites may offer different promotions, such as reduced juice and betting sites may alter their odds based on betting action.
The basis of American odds is that it expresses how much you have to bet to win $100.
- So, if you want to win $100 on your bet with -110 odds, you will need to wager $110 to win $100. It’s that simple.
- If the odds are -105, then you need to bet $105 to win $100.
NFL Point Spreads
NFL point spreads are easily the most popular bet when it comes to wagering on the NFL. They’re designed to create an active betting market between two teams that are not of equal strength. We explore NFL point spreads and offer lots of wagering strategies on the league’s most popular wager.
NFL moneyline bets aren’t as popular as point spreads, but they’re a far simpler bet to calculate and offer much higher returns in many cases. Moneyline betting is just choosing the outright winner. There is no point spread to worry about – just choose the team that you think will win the game outright. There are plenty of profitable NFL moneyline betting strategies.
The total is the number of points scored in the game by both teams. It includes regulation and any overtime period. The oddsmakers will set this number, and bettors will be able to wager on the ‘over’ or ‘under’ of that number. The bet is very basic, but there are a lot of strategies that you can use when betting on NFL totals.
