2017 NFL Football Betting

 

Point Spread Betting (Straight Bet)

The team wagered on must win by the point spread given at the time of the wager. For straight wagers, unless otherwise indicated, the odds are $110 to win $100. Games that tie (push) are considered "no action" and money is re-deposited back into your account. Due to changing events, the point spread may fluctuate at any time.

Example: Player wagers $110.00 on Patriots -7 to beat Colts +7 If Patriots wins by more than 7 points the player wins $100.00 so the total payout including the intial wager would be $210.00. If Patriots only wins by 7 points then the game is considered "no action" and all money is returned to the bettor. If the Patriots wins by less than 7 points the wagers is lost.

Totals (Over/Under)

The combined score of both teams for games wagered on, all totals lay $1.10 to win $1.00 unless it is otherwise indicated.

Example: The player lays $220.00 on the OVER in the Patriots/Colts game. The total for the game is 45. If both teams' combined score is more than 45 than the player would win $200.00. If the combined score is equal 45 the game is concidered "no action" and the money is returned. If the combined score is less than 45 then the wager is lost.

Money Line Bets

The team wagered on just has to win the game. The amount you lay or take for each game may vary. The money line that is read to at the time of your bet is the money line you keep regardless of any line movement.

Example: The player wagers on Patriots -160 at Colts +260. If Patriots wins then the player would lay $160.00 to win $100.00. If the player bet on Colts then the player would lay $100.00 to win $260.00.

Halftime Bets

Halftime betting is simply a bet only on the score of the first, or second half of a contest. The line offered will be a pointspread, a moneyline, or a combination of the two, but the bet applies only to the score of the halftime period specified.

Parlays (also known as Multiples or Combos)

This is a bet of 2 or more teams (selections) or propositions in no particular order. All teams wagered on in a parlay must win. If there is a tie, or "no action" among the selections made, the parlay reverts down to the next lowest number for payoff. In the case of a 2-team parlay, it will revert down to a straight bet. No parlay bets will be accepted where individual "selections" are connected. For example, you cannot parlay the over of the first half of a football game with the over of the total game, because the two are 'connected'.

Example

Player wants to make a 5 team parlay:

Patriots -7
New York +3
Seattle -4
Denver -10
San Francisco -8

If all these games win then the player would have won at 20-1 odds. If only 1 team loses then the entire parlay loses.

Parlays are a very exciting way for the sports betting enthusiast to WIN VERY LARGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY WITH VERY LIMITED RISK! Just look at the simple payout chart below to see how much you'll win by betting just $250 on the parlay combinations.
