American Football, or NFL (National Football League) as it is better known, is the number one sport in America and is becoming increasingly more popular in the UK.

There are now regular NFL games taking place at Wembley Stadium in London every season and with extensive live coverage on Sky Sports (5 live games every week!), NFL fans have got plenty to get stuck into! American football even gets some terrestrial TV coverage with the BBC now showing highlights every Tuesday night and also covering the Super Bowl live.

Due to the extreme physical nature of American football, it has a relatively short season starting in early September and culminating with the spectacle of the Super Bowl in early February. The 2015/16 American Football season is the 96th in the history of NFL and the defending Super Bowl XLIX champions are the New England Patriots.

NFL betting is high-octane and not for the faint-hearted. It provides many twists and turns and very often goes down to the final few plays of the game giving you a whole lot of thrills and spills with your NFL bets.  Making NFL predictions is very difficult due to the very unpredictable nature of the game – it can be a crazy sport to bet on – all it takes is one interception or dropped ball to turn a game on it’s head!

Once you try American football online betting you will realise just how intense and how much fun it can be, especially with the Points Spread betting where the underdog gets a handicap start by a given number of points, so the favourite has to win by more points than this to “cover the spread”.

The Points Spread markets are very popular especially in games involving a heavy favourite on the Moneyline (straight win) market, as it effectively makes the NFL betting odds fairly even with both sides of the spread usually available at around the 10/11 (1.91) mark.

With 7 points for a Touchdown (6 points plus the extra point conversion kick), and 3 points for a Field Goal, these are the most common winning margins so bear that in mind when looking at spread betting. That’s why you will often see a big difference between the NFL odds on -6.5 points and -7.5 points for example.

There is a huge variety of other markets available too such as First / Last / Anytime Touchdown Scorer, Total Points Over/Under, Total Touchdowns, Quarter betting and many more. Several bookmakers also provide excellent NFL betting promotions such as offer “Acca Insurance” where you get your stake back on accumulators if one team lets you down.

For beginners to NFL it’s well worth taking the time to familiarise yourself with the NFL rules, (it’s pretty simple really) then try your hand  with a few NFL free bets to get the feel for it.
