Super Bowl betting time is often the busiest time of the year in terms of one-day wagering, and the number of props and lines you can bet on that Sunday will blow you away; it seems like more are being added every year. Betting on the NFL can be a fun and profitable endeavor nowadays, and here are a few tips to get you started.
First, you must understand that the pool to win the Super Bowl is very small, and it takes a lot for teams to come out of nowhere and be an immediate contender, so look towards the teams with veteran experience leading the way. When you are betting Super Bowl futures early on, you aren’t betting on a team to get better, you’re wagering on their chance to win right now, so take that into account.
You also need a star quarterback to win a Super Bowl it seems, so those teams will get the benefit of the doubt at your sportsbooks. Having a solid defense would probably be No.2, but you need an above-average-to-star pivot to survive in the NFL, which is now primarily a passing league.
However, you have to stay on top of the injury reports and week-to-week play to really be successful in the NFL betting game. Things change throughout the season, sometimes from game to game and it is easy to miss out on a key injury that could change either a short-term or long-term wager you made. Track the futures throughout the campaign and jump on the right price for you.
