NFL Betting Tips – NFL Week 3 Betting Review

NFL Betting Tips – NFL Week 3 Betting Review

NFL Betting Tips – NFL Week 3 Betting Review The New York Giants kicked off last weekend’s NFL action with a home win and ATS cover, earning their first victory of the season against the Washington Redskins. Overall the betting stats were pretty even this past weekend, with home teams going 7-9 against the spread and favorites going 8-8 ATS.

Home underdogs were also split with Tennessee losing outright against the Colts but covering the spread in their two-point defeat as a three-point home underdog. The only other home dog this past weekend saw Detroit get lit up by the Denver Broncos in a straight up and ATS loss.

Over players went 8-6 on Sunday, but cashed in on both the Thursday night and Monday night football games for a 10-6 overall record.

There were a few teams that impressed us this week and through the first three weeks overall. The Atlanta Falcons have been on our radar ever since we saw their up-tempo offense in the preseason, and they have opened the year with three consecutive wins. Even more impressive is the fact that all three of those victories came in the underdog role, including their most recent – an 11-point win at Dallas as a small road dog. They will be favored for the first time this season on Sunday when they host Houston as a 6.5-point favorite.

Arizona is another team that is off to a fast start, not only winning each of their first three games but winning big. All three of the Cardinals victories have come by double-digits, and while we were skeptical of how their defense would fare this season after losing their defensive coordinator, it was clear after two early pick-sixes that this team is going to be feared as long as QB Carson Palmer can stay healthy.

The online sportsbooks listed Seattle as a monster 16-point favorite at home this past Sunday against Chicago despite Seattle losing each of their first two games. The linesmaker was vindicated in that decision as the Bears were shut out 26-0. Seattle has enjoyed one of the best home field advantages in the entire league in the last few years, and it looks like that will continue this year as well. Seattle is a big 9.5-point favorite at home this Monday night against a winless Lions team.

Things are starting to take shape in the AFC North, but not as many expected at the beginning of the season. Pittsburgh finally got RB Le’Veon Bell back from suspension, but then lost QB Big Ben for at least four weeks and possibly more with a nasty leg injury.

Meanwhile, the Cincinnati Bengals are 3-0 and alone at the top of the AFC North Division after winning in Baltimore this past Sunday, sending the Ravens to a 0-3 start. The Bengals are a 4-point home favorite against Kansas City, while winless Baltimore is a 2.5-point favorite at Pittsburgh, where Mike Vick will get the starting nod behind center.

We’ll be back to review key information and NFL betting trends in the coming weeks.

NFL Football Betting Tutorial

NFL Football Betting Tutorial

NFL Football Betting Tutorial Betting on NFL Football is the most popular sport in terms of wagering, and has been for many years. While Las Vegas continues to see their numbers go up every year, most people bet on NFL games through online sports betting sites which offer live betting options as well as the biggest sportsbook signup bonuses that the Las Vegas sportsbooks don’t offer.

There are two main types of NFL wagers – that being against the pointspread and the over/under. Betting on NFL games against the pointspread means that the team chosen doesn’t necessarily need to win the game, but win or lose by a certain amount of points to stay within the given number.

For example, if the New England Patriots are a 3-point favorite against the Green Bay Packers, then New England would have to win the game by more than 3 points in order to cover the pointspread. Likewise, Green Bay would either need to win the game outright or lose by less than three points to cover the spread. If the Patriots won the game by exactly three points, then the game would be considered a “push” and all bets made on either side would be returned.

Over/Under wagers consist of the combined points scored in a game. If the combined score is more than the posted total, then the “Over” is declared the winner. If the combined score is less than the posted total, then the “Under” is the winning bet. Just like pointspread wagers, if the score falls exactly on the number, then it is declared a “push.”

In both of these types of wagers, there is typically a 10% juice which is where the sportsbooks make their money. To make a $100 profit on an NFL bet, you would need to wager $110. If you win that bet, you get your initial $110 back plus the $100 profit. If you lose your bet, then you would be down the entire $110.

A sportsbook sets the line trying to attract equal action on both sides. If they take $1,100 on each team, then they make $100 regardless of who wins. Because this line is set to attract equal action, it is not necessarily what the linesmaker believes will be the winning point margin.

There are other types of NFL bets, including moneyline wagers (picking a team to win the game outright), teasers (picking two or more teams to cover a more favorable pointspread), parlays (picking two or more teams to cover the spread and all games must win for a higher payout), and futures (picking a team to win the Super Bowl early in the season or even before the season starts).

The NFL regular season kicks off Thursday, September 10th when the New England Patriots host the Pittsburgh Steelers. And for those looking to bet on NFL games earlier, the NFL Preseason is already underway. We’ll check in throughout the season with some NFL Football betting tips to help your bottom line this year!
