The NFL is dense with strategy, statistics and tactical pauses, which make it a fertile space for gambling. Plenty of NFL betting sites are more than happy to help you take advantage of that, but just how do you assess which one is right for you?
It's easy to fall into the habit of betting on the same few markets in sports betting, but American football has a diverse range of opportunities to suit different gambling approaches. It pays to know what's available, and what suits your knowledge and skills.
As well as knowing what to bet on, choosing an NFL betting site is about finding the tools to empower your strategy. This means gaining a clear view of the markets, keeping control of your spending, and knowing you're getting the right odds.
There's a wealth of stats in the NFL, and although you can find many online before a match starts, the best NFL betting sites will display the stats in accessible ways and even track them in-play. Key statistics to look out for in the money line are match histories, head-to-head stats and points per game (scored and conceded).
Yards per game (YPG) are also useful in working out how consistent a team is. Offensive YPG shows how manyyards a team advances against an opponent; defensive shows the distance conceded.
Other stats that can affect a game, and inform bets on the totals and player markets, include interceptions (cutting out passes) and pass success rate. It's all vital ammunition in assessing the likelihood of scoring or conceding. Players who prefer to get a feel for a game, and enjoy in-play betting, should also look out for sites that stream matches live.
