Online NFL Betting
hundreds of websites on the internet promoting their online NFL betting
systems or pushing online sportsbooks or online casinos in order to entice
NFL fans into adding a little action to their NFL football Sunday.
As with anything else on the internet, many have their own personal
agendas. Some online sportsbooks are reputable and unfortunately some are not.
Some pay off promptly, while others won't pay at all. I've done my fair
share of working NFL betting lines to accentuate the Sunday afternoon
experience. At times I've been known to place a wager here or there to make the Sunday games
more than just fantasy football fodder. So I decided to setup a
page dedicated to online NFL betting so others might benefit from my own
personal experience on the world wide web.
Contained on this site is a set of constantly updating real-time NFL betting lines from each of my top rated online sportsbooks. I've put a lot of time into researching which sportsbooks pay promptly, offer the best lines, and provide the best customer service. Each sportsbook below has had the esteemed pleasure of absorbing some of my own personal funds from time to time, as I have tried each one. If I didn't have a good experience, the sportsbook would not appear below. If you have any issues with any of the sportbooks below, shoot me an e-mail and I'll get it corrected. The sportsbooks below represent online wagering sites that I have not had a bad experience with or heard of any issues from existing players. If you've had a different experience, contact me and I'll pull them. To begin, simply click on the logo of the sportsbook and setup an account.
Betting Lines for the Novice
The cryptic terminology of online sportsbooks can be difficult to navigate if one fails to understand some simple terms. The following section is intended for those not well acquainted with the fine art of online NFL betting to better acclimate yourself to some of the terms that are loosely thrown around in betting circles.
- A point spread is an adjustment to the final score in a given contest
based on the number of points that oddsmakers or online casinos predict the favored team
will win by. The use of point spreads is intended to equalize the
playing field in each contest in order to encourage the placement of
wagers for both the favored team and the underdog. Points spreads, also
known as "the line" or "the spread", are set by taking a number of
factors into consideration including game day conditions, injuries,
previous head to head matchups or the number of wagers placed on each
side of the line. Points spreads are not set in stone until your wager
is placed and may fluctuate through the end of the contest. Wagers can
be placed for either the
favorite or the underdog. In order to win your wager for the favorite,
this team must win the game and their margin of victory must be greater
than the set point spread. Wagers for the underdog are won, if the
underdog wins, ties, or the favored team wins but fails to exceed the
number of points set by the point spread (also known as "failure to
cover the spread"). In each given line, the favorite is always indicated
by a minus sign in front of the point spread (i.e. -3.5) and the
underdog without it (i.e. 3.5). For example, given a NFL football
contest between the New England Patriots and the Buffalo Bills with the
(-10.5) and a final scored of 24-14 New England. In this case, if you
bet the Patriots, even though they win, because they failed to cover the
spread, you would lose.
ATS stands for "Against the spread"
