How to be successful in NFL Gaming.

There is more money bet on the NFL than just about any sport. This makes it extremely difficult to be successful as a sports game player. The reason the NFL is one of the hardest sports to bet on successfully is because the betting lines are very accurate. The more popular a sport, the more money there is in the betting pools. This results in finer lines.

There are ways to win playing the NFL, like player prop bets where the lines are not as accurate. Knowledge is power so use all available assets, such as SportCenter.com to help find betting value. Whether, historical betting systems, in-game mismatches and market movement, all play their roles.

What is the NFL Point Spread?

A point spread is a bet on the margin of victory. Say the Rams are -3, that means they're favored by three points and need to win by 4 points or more to win the bet. In that same game, the Chiefs would be +3, meaning they need to lose by 1-2 points or win the game to win the bet.

What is meant by Total bet in an NFL game?

The total is a bet on the total number of points scored in a game. If the total in that Chiefs-Rams game is 38, bettors who take the over would win if the two teams combine to score at least 39 points. Players who bet the under would win if they combine for 37 points or less. If it lands exactly on 38, it's a push and all wagers are refunded.

Explain how moneylines work in NFL gaming?

A moneyline is a bet on the winner of the game. Everything in American moneyline odds is based on winning $100 -- if the Rams are -200, that means you need to risk $200 to win $100. If the Chiefs are +150, you'll win $150 if you risk $100. It is not required that you bet $100, of course -- it scales up and down based on how much you want to wager. You can use an odds converter to calculate moneyline winnings.
