Ways To Bet NFL Playoffs
There is no shortage of markets offered by sportsbooks when it comes to the NFL. The most traditional ways to wager are for a team to cover the point spread; ‘over’ or ‘under’ a certain amount of total points being scored in a game; or the moneyline, where you bet on a team to win the game without having to cover a spread but with odds attached to the potential outcome.
There will also be pages of props to choose from. Popularized in Super Bowl betting but now a staple on the betting menu for nearly every game in sports, football props include whether the first score of the game will be a touchdown or field goal, or whether there will be a safety, as well as player props like first player to score a touchdown or over/under passing yards for a quarterback.
Of course, you can also participate in “futures” betting, where you wager on a team to win its conference or the Super Bowl.
