Where To Bet NFL Online

Graeme

In this article I’m going to talk about where to bet the NFL.

Now obviously practically every sportsbook in existence will offer the ability to bet on the NFL. However that doesn’t mean you can or should just sign up at any old one.

What you want to do is find the BEST online sportsbook to bet the NFL on. Everyone is different but generally want you’re looking for is:

  • A sportsbook that offers a deposit bonus
  • A sportsbook that is trustworthy
  • A sportsbook that offers NFL lines early on
  • A sportsbook that offers up a wide variety of NFL bets

So basd on that criteria, I recommend the following:

Where To Bet NFL Online:

America: Probably the best overall sportsbook for betting on the NFL is 5Dimes Sportsbook. They have the best odds with various reduced juice specials and offer a wide variety of prop bets and special unique bets etc. In saying that their software sucks at times so you might prefer Bovada which is a lot easier to browse and navigate and have their own unique props and so on. Basically if you’re American, have an account at both those books.

United Kingdom: I personally feel that Bet365 Sportsbook do a fantastic job covering the NFL.

Everywhere Else: You want an account at a sportsbook that caters to Americans so in that case, 5Dimes Sportsbook is your best bet. As while all the other sportsbooks do offer odds on American football, the selection isn’t that great at times. In saying that, I personally bet a lot of my NFL action at Bet365 Sportsbook and I’d personally recommend having an account there too.

How to Bet NFL Online:

Here’s how to bet the NFL online at the above mentioned sportsbooks:

5Dimes Sportsbook: After logging in, on the left side it will say “Football”. Put checkboxes beside “NFL”, “NFL Props” and “Reduced”. Then you get to see all the NFL game odds plus props PLUS the reduced juice ones. Or if you want to bet futures, check mark that. Then click “Continue” at the bottom and it will display it all.

Bovada: When in the sports section click “Football” on the left and this will list all football action. You can use the navigation bar at the top to filter by NFL and then for each game to see what is available, click the “BETS >” link to the right of the game listing.

Bet365 Sportsbook: On the left side click “Football”. All the NFL bets available should be filtered by sub-categories such as “Lines”, “Main Props” etc. Note for futures you need to scroll to the bottom under the “Futures” category.

NFL Over/Unders (Game Totals): Always a fun bet – you don’t care who wins, you just care that both teams either put up a lot of points or don’t put up any at all. In this one I analyze NFL over/under betting.

What is NFL Betting? What NFL Bets/Props Are There?

At its core, NFL betting is betting on the outcome of a particular NFL game, or of an event within an NFL game.

You can bet various things in the NFL. From the basics such as who will win a game, to the more advanced such as how many sacks will there be in a game, or what will be the total rushing yards for a specific player.

There are a wide variety of bets available for the NFL with the most popular being the point spread and over/under.

Common NFL Betting Questions:

How does the point spread work in NFL?

It’s rare for 2 teams to be considered equal in the NFL. Sometimes there can be ridiculous mismatches on paper such as the New England Patriots versus well…anyone. So let’s use them as an example.

If the Patriots are playing the Titans and you wanted to bet the Patriots to win, $100 might only get you $13 profit. That’s a big risk and not one a lot of people want to make.

So instead you can utilize point spread bettign where a handicap is set. So the Titans may get 7.5 points – that will be listed as Titans +7.5 and Patriots -7.5.

You’re then choosing to bet on the outcome of the game with those points in there.

So if you bet Patriots -7.5, you’re betting that if you take 7.5pts away from the Patriots final score, they’d still win. So if the Patriots won the game 20-10, you’d take 7.5pts away from the 20. 20-7.5=12.5, so the final score would be Patriots 12.5-10 and thus the bet has won.

Where To Watch NFL Online:

I know it costs money, but the NFL Gamepass is a great option. Depending on the country you’re in there will be other options after clicking that link. For Canada for example it forwards me to DAZN.

NFL Betting Strategy:

Looking at unique prop bets is the best thing to do. These are ones where less manipulation and research is done by Vegas.

I personally like to bet on player props. With fantasy football being so big there are great resources out there and you can use that to your advantage to really clean up – with all of the analysis on individual players it makes it a lot easier to figure out those prop bets involving receptions, rushing yards, sacks etc.

I also like to study the smaller props such as “Shortest Touchdown Scored in the game” or “Team to Score Longest Field” goal. Small ones like that you can find a lot of value as the data put into setting those lines isn’t as much as the main bets.
