American football, both the professional and college variety, is the dominant sport in the United States, with its popularity far exceeding baseball, basketball and ice hockey.
Sports betting on NFL takes the following sections :
- Spread betting / Handicaps
- Point Spread betting – OVER/UNDER
- Proposition bets (Future bets, exotic bets, players stats)
Moneyline – This is the most simplest way of betting. It involves picking a team or an individual player that you think has better chances of winning or performing. After picking one, you simple put a bet on the team/player.
Spread betting – It’s quite similar to moneyline. The only difference is that the team you pick should win with a certain margin. The terms used for spread betting are runline (for MLB) and puck line (for NHL).
Over/under – An Over Under bet is simple. Similar to a point spread, a bookmaker sets a total number of points that they think will be scored in an American football game, with a 50% chance that the game will end with more than that number of points scored and a 50% chance that the game will end with fewer than that many points scored.
Parlays- The parlay in sports betting attracts a lot of gamblers. There are various sorts of parlays available, with the single sport one being the most popular. In the single sport parlay a bettor puts money on anywhere from two to ten (or sometimes even more) games all of which are of the same sport such as NFL football.
