These NFL betting strategies should help you make profits all season long and into the playoffs.
Dissect the Numbers
NFL teams play just 16 games with six of those match-ups coming against divisional rivals. Due to teams not playing the same football sides, or all of the league’s team during the season, it makes it is often difficult to fully measure just how good a team is.
If you are looking at records and win ratio, you can be fooled when an average team defeats a string of poor NFL sides. An average team defeating a run of weak teams can overinflate just how good it is.
When betting on a win market, you should look at the two teams’ head to head records. In addition, look for opponents they have had in common and study the results they had against those like opponents. This should help you make good bets during the season.
Bet the Totals Market
If you are new to betting or just a novice NFL fan, then betting on the totals market could be one of the best NFL betting strategies in your arsenal.
The totals market deals with the total number of points scored in an NFL game. When betting on the totals market you must decide on the over or under of a set number. For example, the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears are set at an over/under of 46.0. Bettors must decide if the game will finish with over 46.0 points or under 46.0 points.
