NFL Preseason Betting Strategies and Tips

Undefined

Unlike other sports where there is very little appetite for betting on exhibition games, NFL preseason betting only continues to grow as football handicappers gear up for the upcoming campaign by studying teams and players in action as early as possible.

Since the NFL is king among all sports, even the preseason schedule attracts huge interest from bettors and fans alike. The fact that there is significant money to be made for football bettors who pay attention to free agency, training camps and holdouts has certainly bolstered its appeal in recent years.

Betting Home Underdogs

Undefined

Home underdog trends tend to vary from year to year in the NFL. But if you look at the big picture over the past 25 years, there have been two constants in the NFL. First of all, home underdogs cover the spread more often than not, and secondly, the public almost always prefers betting road favorites instead.

The public’s fascination with backing road favorites is not too surprising, especially since ‘chalk’ players like to ride the NFL’s most popular teams at what they believe to be low odds.

Why NFL Prop Betting can be Profitable

Undefined

NFL betting is often centered on the point spread and the over/under total, but the proliferation of online sportsbooks – and football fantasy leagues – has made proposition betting a go-to wager for pigskin bettors.

Sandwich Game Theory

Undefined

Over the course of a long and punishing season even the most talented teams in the league have off-games. In a perfect world, every game would have every player playing at 100%, but that just isn’t realistic.

Some games will see a team feeling fresh, confident, energetic, and ready to play at a high level. In other games, the emotional and physical toll of a long season will show on the field or court, making a team look sluggish and unfocused.

Halftime Betting Strategies and Tips

Undefined

Halftime betting is available at the sportsbooks for both football and basketball, and it’s becoming a key staple for NFL bettors looking to stay ahead of the oddsmakers.

Lines on the second half of action are typically available at the end or near the end of the first half, leaving bettors with precious little time to do some rapid-fire handicapping and make a bet. As well, you probably won’t have time to shop around for the sharpest number.

However, you do have one advantage: You’ve seen the teams in question play the first half.

Betting NFL Season Win Totals

Undefined

Spreads, totals, and futures are still all the rage in NFL betting, but season win totals are gaining popularity among National Football League bettors looking to wager on how many victories the New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers, etc. will put up in the season ahead.

NFL Computer Picks: Wild Card Weekend

The Indianapolis Colts blanked the Cincinnati Bengals 27-0 at home back in October, but the OddsShark Computer thinks the score will be closer when they meet again on Sunday in a Wild Card Weekend matchup at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The OddsShark Computer has produced a projected score of Indianapolis 27.0, Cincinnati 26.1 for their game early on Sunday afternoon. That would give the Colts the SU but not the ATS victory - as of Monday night they were listed as 4-point favorites on the betting lines.
