With a wild first two weeks of the NFL regular season behind us, now is the perfect time to start studying trends and game lines and get in on NFL online betting. While many new sports bettors may only be familiar with point spread betting, there are dozens of NFL betting options to take advantage of before planting yourself on the couch on NFL Sunday.
Oddsmakers at online sportsbooks offering National Football League betting have developed an uncanny ability to establish point spreads so accurate that knowing who to lay a bet on can be a grueling decision for new sports bettors.
But what if you could move point spreads to your advantage?
With teaser betting, you can.
Teasers, as they are so appropriately named, are varieties of sports bets that enable you to adjust the point spreads on two or more games in exchange for reduced odds.
In a teaser bet, six extra points are added to the point spread favoring the teams of your choice in at least two games. For example, if the Seattle Seahawks are favored by 7.5 points over the Denver Broncos, a teaser bet would change the spread to either Seattle by -1.5 or make Denver +13.5.
Some online sportsbooks also offer sweetheart teasers, which let you adjust the point spread by either 10 or 13 points on either three or four games. Of course, such bets come with dramatically reduced odds, but provide sports bettors with peace of mind, at least until kickoff.
There are also countless opportunities to bet on NFL player and team performances, both in individual games and throughout the season.
Proposition bets, or props bets as they more commonly known, allow you to bet on individual player performance, like how many yards a quarterback will throw for, or the number of times he is sacked, during a game or throughout the season.
Other player props bets enable wagering on who will be named NFL MVP and rookies of the year.
Team props bets enable wagering on subjects like how many total wins a team will earn in the regular season, and whether any team will have a perfect 16-0 season, or dismal winless campaign.
But if you are looking for an NFL betting experience that is immediate and exhilarating, check out NFL live betting. Offered at most major online sportsbooks, NFL live betting, also known as in-play betting lets you make wagers on the fly, using your computer, tablet or smartphone, as you watch the game.
As injuries, swings in momentum, controversial calls and changes in weather impact an NFL game in play, you can seize the moment to pad or change up your betting strategy.
But be careful. While live betting on NFL can be an incredibly exhilarating and profitable experience, the tide can turn quickly in an NFL game, with improbable 4th quarter rallies making and breaking the fortunes of NFL bettors every week.
