NFL Markets

In Australia, NFL is becoming one of the most popular sports for betting, and with American Football being a relatively intricate game there are plenty of markets to choose from. Each NFL match offers a vast array of betting markets, ranging from predicting the game winner to the point spread and numerous Player Prop Bets, including touchdown scorers. The possibilities for NFL betting are nearly endless. Nonetheless, the primary three methods most people use to bet on an NFL game are the Money line, Point Spread, and Points Totals.

Money Line

In the NFL, money line betting offers the simplest way to place a wager on a game. It's all about picking the team you believe will win the match. While ties are rare in NFL games, they can happen, leading to two types of money line bets. In a 2-way money line, you can only bet on either team X or team Y to win, resulting in a push if there's a tie. On the other hand, in a 3-way money line, where ties are considered, your money line bet on a team would be a loss if the game ends in a tie.

Line Betting or Betting Against The Spread (ATS)

When betting against the spread, you have two options: 

  1. Betting on the favorite to win by a certain number of points 
  2. Betting on the underdog to keep the game closer, either by winning outright or losing by less than the specified number of points.

Total Points or Over/Under Betting

NFL Over/Under betting offers a fantastic option for wagering on a match when you're unsure about picking a side, or you anticipate a close and tense game, or even a high-scoring shootout. 

This type of bet involves predicting the total combined points scored by both teams. The sportsbooks set a line, such as 48.5, and if 49 or more points are scored, the over wins; if it's 48 or fewer points, the under wins. It's a great way to add excitement to the game without necessarily having a preference for one team over the other.

NFL Player Props

NFL Prop Bets allow you to wager on whether certain events will happen or not during a game. The most popular NFL player prop bet is on a player scoring a touchdown, but there are various other performance-based props, such as predicting whether a player will achieve over/under a certain number of passing, rushing, or receiving yards. 

These prop bets add an exciting element of player performance matchups, appealing to fans of NFL fantasy football, which is why they enjoy widespread popularity among bettors.

NFL Team Props

Indeed, NFL Team Props allows you to bet on whether a team will or won't achieve a specific outcome in the game. These team props provide an excellent betting option when you have a stronger inclination towards one side of the game. 

For instance, if you have seen the stats that the Titans allow an average of 14 points in the first half and they are going up against the Eagles who are great offensively in the first half, you may be inclined to bet on Philadelphia to score more than 13.5 points before halftime. 

NFL Multi Bets

With action packed Sunday Night Football (Monday Morning Football in Oz) it is great to string together a few multi bets for each timeslot. Picking multiple winners is tough and should never be the bread and butter of your gambling tactics, but it’s a great way to get some good returns when backing multiple favourites.

NFL Future Betting

There is no bigger event in the world than the Super Bowl, so backing a winner or two at the start of the season can really turn out to be a masterstroke if your team can get there. You will definitely be the life of the party when you are throwing your chicken wings around when your team gets up after backing them from the start of the year. There are also plenty of other NFL future markets that are a little less difficult to back than the SB winner.

Future markets in NFL include:

Specifically, 38 quarterbacks and 16 running backs have emerged as the primary recipients of this prestigious accolade.

Top Division

NFL History

The National Football League (NFL) has a rich and storied history that began in 1920 when it was founded as the American Professional Football Association (APFA). Over the years, the league underwent several changes, rebranding as the NFL in 1922. In its early years, the NFL faced challenges, including competition from rival leagues and financial struggles.

However, in the 1950s, the league experienced a surge in popularity, aided by the advent of televised games. The NFL's prominence continued to grow, culminating in the 1966 merger with the American Football League (AFL), leading to the establishment of the Super Bowl as the championship game. Throughout the decades, the NFL has become an integral part of American culture, captivating millions of fans and producing legendary players and iconic moments. Today, the NFL stands as the most prominent professional football league in the world, celebrated for its unparalleled athleticism and entertainment.
