NFL POINT SPREADS EXPLAINED:
The point spread - commonly referred to as “the spread” - is the number assigned by the sportsbooks to represent the point difference between two teams for betting purposes. The goal of the spread is not to project how many points that a certain team is going to win by. Instead, the point spread is meant to create a situation where half the wagers that come in on a game are on one team while the other half are on the other. (This is called “balanced action”).
The team with the negative number is considered the favorite. (Example: -7.5) The team with the positive number is considered the underdog or “dog”. (Example: +7.5)
The team that is the favorite needs to win the game by more than the assigned point spread value in order to cash the ticket. For example, if the Bears are -3.5 against the Packers they need to win by four or more points to beat the point spread. Conversely, a bettor taking the underdog Packers in this example needs Green Bay to either win outright or lose by three or fewer points.
NFL MONEYLINE EXPLAINED:
A moneyline wager in an NFL game is a bet on which team will win the game outright, independent of the point spread.
The favorite in a game has a negative moneyline (example: -180). The underdog has a positive moneyline (example: +150). The odds represent the payouts on a $100 wager. So for a favorite at -180 the bettor would wager $180 to win $100. For an underdog at +150 the bettor would wager $100 to win $150.
Again, moneyline bettors are simply trying to pick which team will win the game. The moneyline is the agreed upon payout of the wager.
NFL TOTALS or OVER/UNDER EXPLAINED:
NFL totals are a bet on the total combined number of points that both teams will score in a given game.
You can bet totals ‘over’ or ‘under’. If you are betting ‘over’ then you are betting that the combined number of points from the teams will exceed the posted total. If the posted total is 45.5 and you bet ‘over’ then you wagering that 46 or more combined points will be scored. If you are betting ‘under’ 45.5 then you are hoping for 45 or fewer combined points to be scored.
All points scored in overtime count towards the totals wager. If the total number of points scored ends up being exactly the same as the posted total (for instance a 24-20 game with a total of 44.0) it is considered a ‘push’ (a tie) and the bet is refunded.
NFL FUTURES EXPLAINED:
NFL futures are wagers on eventual results regarding certain teams. For example, a Super Bowl futures wager is a bet on which team will win the Super Bowl in a particular season. Other types of football futures wagers can involve the number of wins that a team achieves during the season, betting on which team wins their specific division, or betting on which team will win the conference title.
The odds on NFL futures wagers are generally expressed similar to a moneyline. For example, the Raiders could be posted at +1500 to win the Super Bowl. That means that a $100 wager would yield $1,500 if Dallas won the Super Bowl.
NFL is known as one of the sports where a smart bettor who practiced proper money management can make some very solid profits. Once a bettor begins to study and understand NFL odds, (which are also known as point spreads or lines) as well as totals or over unders, one can gain a better understanding of how the sportsbooks set their numbers. The sportsbooks set their odds with public perception in mind. They know the public is going to bet the whats known as public (or popular) teams each week so there are some great situations to get good numbers by going against those teams. It is always best to shop around when looking for the best NFL odds. Many books release different numbers and the spreads always tend to differ at each sports book. If you are truly interested in finding the best NFL odds, it is always good to have funded accounts at least three sportsbooks.
