How to Bet on NFL Games

To bet on NFL games throughout the 2021 season, you must first understand NFL odds and the basic bet types, along with how to use them on sportsbooks. With a selection of our guides with live data at your disposal, find some summaries below of NFL bets you can make this season.

Point spread

Betting against the spread is the natural progression from betting the moneyline, especially if you love an underdog story. Not only will you win money if the team wins, but also if they lose by less than the point spread. This is probably the most popular bet type across the NFL, allowing you to really drill down into offensive and defensive statistics to base your wagers on.

Totals (over/under)

Betting the over/under is a step away from predicting the winner of any matchup. Most commonly based around the total number of points scored in a game, you can bet whether that total will be over or under the point total set by the bookmaker. When betting on totals, it's essential to do your research beforehand, looking at head-to-head matchups for how the teams have fared against each other in recent fixtures.

Moneyline bets

NFL moneyline bets are the bread and butter for all bettors, especially amongst beginners. For maximum value with moneyline bets, it's essential you bet the underdog, especially as the season rolls on, with form, standings, and injuries playing a bigger part in each matchup. However, unless you believe you know something the bookie doesn't, wagering big bucks on the underdog isn't advisable.


NFL futures bets are perfect for bettors wanting a long-term investment with their wagers. The earlier you place futures bets, the more value you'll usually get, unless you pick an under-performing team during the season to succeed. Popular futures bets in the NFL include picking a team to win their division, make the playoffs, or even win the Super Bowl.

Prop bets

While prop bets for the Super Bowl can be as random as the color of Gatorade poured over a coach, regular season proposition bets focus much more on player performance. Essentially, any bet which doesn't directly impact the final scoreline can be seen as a prop bet, including markets like First Touchdown Scorer, Wide Receiver Receiving Yards, or Quarterback Passing Yards. These markets would be presented as over/under prop bets, meaning you would be betting on whether the player would achieve the total set by the sportsbook.


Making parlay bets on the NFL is as easy as selecting multiple moneyline bets across several fixtures. However, you can also mix in a range of markets to broaden your bet slip and get better odds. Check out our schedule for a full list of the games, so you can plot favorable matchups and get yourself a parlay win this season.

Live NFL Betting

Live betting is extremely popular in NFL, mostly due to the many breaks in play that allow for bets on the next drive or play, player performance, or other prop bets. Of course, another major part of live betting in NFL is the cash-out (buy-out) option, allowing you to settle your bet early for what is usually a reduced price. Live betting in NFL is dependant on the line movement throughout any game, which is affected by the time on the clock, scoreline, or momentum of play.
