With that in mind, let’s take a look at the NFL markets on offer at BetConnect as well as a few things to consider when backing or laying a selection.
The ‘Money Line’ is the bedrock of NFL betting. Simply put, it means betting on a specific team to win a game. Although rare, it is possible for a match to end as a tie if no points are scored during overtime. The Philadelphia Eagles and Cincinnati Bengals played out a 23-23 tie over the weekend, for example.
Also known as handicap betting, spread betting involves giving one team a head start in order to even out the odds. You are betting on a specific team to either win or lose by a certain margin. This is great if you fancy a team to win comfortably. Or maybe you can see the perceived underdog taking a stronger side all the way without necessarily winning.
In this market you are betting on whether you think the combined total of points scored by both teams will be over or under a specific line. Monday’s matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Baltimore Ravens had a line of 51.5, for example. It finished 34-20 in favour of the Chiefs. If you add both scores together, you get a total of 54 points. That means your bet would have won if you backed over 51.5 points and lost if you backed the low side of the line.
First Touchdown Scorer
This market requires little explanation. You are simply betting on which player you think will score the first touchdown of a game.
Anytime Touchdown Scorer
Similarly, the Anytime Touchdown Scorer market involves betting on a player to score a touchdown at any point of a game.
One last thing…
Before placing an NFL bet it is always worth checking the rules around overtime. Most match bet markets do include overtime, but not all, so make sure you know where you stand by checking out our rules around American Football betting.
