How to Bet NFL Football
by Doc's Sports

The NFL has risen to the front of the line in popularity and one of the main reasons for its success is betting. NFL Odds can be found everywhere from newspapers, computers, and on the ticker on ESPN. The reason pro football is so popular is because there are only 32 teams in the league, teams play just one game a week and many games can be found on free television. Playing only once a week makes it much easier to follow a team since NFL is not an everyday event such as baseball and basketball.

This does create problems when trying to handicap NFL football, as the public is very knowledgeable about the sport. At most, there will be just 16 games a week and the NFL requires that all teams disclose their injuries during the week. The lines have gotten so sharp that the general public cannot dig deep enough to uncover angles that can consistently beat the books.

Following are three things to look for in NFL Betting that can help you consistently beat the books:

1) Do not put much stock into last week's performance. Momentum is not that big of an issue as in college football, since everybody in the league in a professional. Look for teams that have been blown out on the road to bounce back and put forth a much better effort at home.

2) Shop around for the best line, especially around the number three. Three points decide a large percentage of NFL games and thus there is a big difference between laying 2 or 3 .

3) Injuries are one of the most overrated statistics in NFL Football. The exception to this is the quarterback position. Teams are loaded with depth and often times a line moves too much based on one player being out. If that happens look to exploit the line by taking the side with the injury.

After you finish this feature be sure to view Doc's /Suicide Pool page. Our NFL Wagering page is also a valuable tool for your NFL research. Doc's NFL Europa resource is a must read for NFL wagering. Keep abreast of all the NFL topics as well as free picks and predictions on Doc's home page - check it out after reading this article.

That being said, hitting 60 percent winners on side selections is outstanding, as few cappers are able to achieve this. Your best option is to bet more money early in the season, when linemakers are still unfamiliar with the strength of each team. Once the season moves into the second half, lines become sharp and you will see your percentage of winners drop. Playing underdogs is usually the best way to achieve this percentage because the public falls in love with favorites and their lines are slanted toward them.

NFL Football is the most bet on sport in the world and often the hardest to handicap. Here at Doc's we focus more on the college game because there are more games to choose from and often less information is made public. Nonetheless, picking your spots and using smart money management are the keys to success in NFL betting.
