NFL Betting: 5 Tips to Successful Betting

The NFL has been known to pop up with a few surprises over the years when it comes to betting markets, which makes it a very fun sport to bet on knowing that anything can happen on the pitch. If you are a big NFL fan and you like gambling on the week's fixtures, have a look at the following five tips to consider and see if they will help better your judgement.

1. Past Results

Firstly, it's important you do a bit of research when it comes to the market you are betting on. If you are picking a team to win the match, you'll likely want to have a look at their recent results to see if they are currently in good form, and you may also want to have a look at their opponents to make sure the game is winnable. You may even take your research further here by having a look at past results for the same match, as opponents always struggle against some teams more than they do others.

2. Team News & Injuries

Take advantage of the many news sources online when it comes to the NFL, and have a look at player injuries & suspensions beforehand. Teams could miss out on some of their important players in matches they need them most and it could prove to be a costly mistake if you miss this part of research out.

3. Professional Tipsters

There are hundreds of resources online when it comes to tips and recommended bets on any matches in the NFL, so it's important you have a look at these tips as you'll be able to put your research to the test to see if you have come up with similar reasons why certain picks will win. Having a look at the many tips available will give you even more insight to games and will also provide you with more points to research when it comes to future games.

4. Stick to the Common Markets

A lot of bookmakers offer a variety of markets when it comes to the NFL and many other sports around. You will find markets such as the first player to score a touchdown or first player to make a catch, but in reality, you are going to get more chance of success if you stick to the more common markets, such as over/under total points, and the market lines for the winning team etc. A lot of bookmakers out there offer a variety of markets to try and put you off your game, so it's important you stick to what you know and what you have researched.

5. Compare Odds & Use Free Bets

Whatever market you bet on, always make sure you have a look at the odds comparison websites to ensure you get the best odds with a different bookmaker at all times. Many bookmakers offer “best odds guaranteed” on selected markets and if you are betting on those markets, there's no reason why you shouldn't profit as much as you can from your winning bets. Along with comparing odds, it's imperative you visit sites such as Free Bets to make sure you get all of the no deposit bonuses and the many other promotions bookmakers provide.

If you are a regular NFL punter, you'll definitely want to take advantage of the above tips to better your chances of winning your bets. You could be a person with lots of knowledge when it comes to the NFL, but if you do not do all of the above and research in as much detail as possible, the chances of winning your bets greatly sour.
