NFL, also known as the “National Football League” is established 1920 and it’s widely known as the most popular sports in the US. There are 32 franchises in the league which means from a betting perspective, that there is A LOT of research to do, if you want to pick out the best odds and be profitable in the long run. It’s not unheard of that a amateur player would actually stay in profit for one season, but when the seasons pass by, it’s most likely a non profit hobby for most of us. It doesn’t have to be like that, and we’re here to tell you how to change everything you thought you knew about NFL betting.
Rookie mistakes – don’t stare at the QB
Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Jared Goff, Tom Brady, Cam Newton etc – the list goes on forever. There are some serious talent behind almost every NFL, which means it’s hard to evaluate them when their starting quarterback is missing. We know, it’s kind of a big deal, but it doesn’t have to be a gamebreaker. You could actually see it as an opportunity to score big odds, if for example Brady, Rodgers or Brees is sitting out a game due to injury. Usually this means that the bookies will increase the odds, because it’s less likely that a team wins without their star QB.
What we would do in these kind of cases, we would first look what kind of a guy is the backup QB, and how is the offensive and defensive lines looking at the moment. You maybe didn’t know, but when the backup QB hits the pitch, the defensive line tends to play a bit harder in order to “protect” the inexperienced QB. At some cases this might lead to very interesting scenarios, where the 2nd QB is actually playing lights out football! Of course, you should be there to gather all the profits from the bets you’ve made, even their starting QB was sidelined and nobody expected them to win! Except you of course.
ALWAYS use the available bonuses
Always. Use. Your. Bonuses. This comes without saying, but you should always claim any available bonuses there is, in order to maximise your winnings. We encourage you to play responsibly and bet only the amounts you’re comfortable with, but when you are gifted a 100 percent bonuses, you should if you manage to find good odds to increase your betsizes on. Of course, only do this once, otherwise you’re just spending your own bankroll on a much higher rate than you’re probably comfortable with. Sportsbook bonuses are a good way to increase chances of winning big amounts of money, and usually it’s completely risk free.
Watch the games
How are you able to bet on the games, if you’re not watching them? Watch post game coverages and see if you can spot something that you could be using on their next match (improved playbook, better WR’s, etc. etc.). Doesn’t sound too bad doesn’t it? Watching football all day, every day!
