Are you ready for some football? Of course, we’re not talking about the European variety, but the good old fashioned American kind. Even if you’re watching the games from across the pond, the reality is that you can make a great deal of money betting on the NFL football games. They attract a lot of attention, and therefore a lot of betting action. But before you just dive in, we have some tips that you can consider as you begin to place your bets.
First and foremost, make sure that you survey your teams very carefully. A lot of people overlook the fact that new players are added each and every year. The team that you thought you knew could have been reshuffled considerably. Some people are so loyal to a certain team, and that’s just fine…for everything other than sports betting. You need to be able to see where you can identify good betting opportunities, but you can’t do that without looking at the teams.
When it comes to the players, looking at the numbers is absolutely important. The worst thing that you can do is just go with what some sports writer thinks, or what the talking heads on TV think about a team or a player. You need to ignore market sentiment completely and go for the numbers. When it comes to spread betting, performance is where the upsets come from, and where you can make a considerable amount of money on the side. We all could use a little extra cash in pocket, right? Absolutely. That’s why these tips matter.
Next, you want to look at the matchups. Is there any historical data that you can look at? We place historical data last because it’s too easy to get swept up into team nostalgia. However, if a coach hasn’t changed in a long time, it’s not a bad idea to see if you can review old games to see what’s going on.
Finally, you still want to make small bets. We know that we always advise this, but people really try to pull out huge bets on one NFL event or another. Instead of chasing the Super Bowl, make sure that you let other games get a little attention too. It could help you avoid a huge money sink, and spread your betting around. That’s never a bad thing.
We have a few teams that we like, such as the Steelers and the Seahawks. But you should have a good time picking out the teams that you like, the teams that you don’t like, and the players that you need to keep an eye on. Remember that teams can always move around, so there’s always a chance to cash in big.
