There are often no additional charges to watch these live streamed NFL games – matches are usually streamed free of charge as long as you have a balance with the bookmaker above zero, with some companies requiring a bet to be placed first.
Having live streams of NFL matches is now a ‘deal maker’ for many people when they are choosing an online bookmaker, and this is because having all of the action available for live viewing gives them a single location to watch the games, find the latest odds and place bets – there is no longer any need to flick endlessly between different windows or browser tabs.
All of the major bookmakers have jumped onto the NFL bandwagon, or should we say ‘juggernaut?’ The good news for sports gaming enthusiasts is that there is a variety of tempting new customer offers to take advantage of.
William Hill are well-known for their generous welcome promotion offering £30 of free bets when customers stake £10, and the live NFL streaming action is available for anyone who has a positive balance. Additionally, the video can be viewed if you have made a bet within the previous 24 hours.
Unibet also have a new customer offer, with up to £40 back after making a first bet, and they have developed their own sports streaming service, UTV, which offers NFL and a wide variety of other sporting events. Live streams can be watched by anyone with a balance above zero, or anybody who has made a bet within the previous 24 hours.
Betfair have up to £100 of free bets on offer to new customers, and along with NFL they have live footage of a variety of sports for anyone with a positive balance – only horse racing and greyhound racing footage require a bet to be made first.
Bet365’s welcome offer provides up to £100 in free bet credits, and anyone who has a positive account balance or who has made a bet within the previous 24 hours can access their live streams.
A mobile app is the best way to experience a bookmaker’s services on a phone or tablet, and when live streaming is included you can watch the NFL play-by-play and keep up with the latest odds and offers without having to flick between different apps.
It is important to remember that the strength of your mobile data or Wifi signal could affect the ‘live’ element of any video, and so you need to bear in mind that the odds that you see could be based on events that haven’t yet reached the ‘live’ stream.
The beginning of the year always has NFL fans thinking about ‘the big one,’ and Superbowl LIII takes place on 13th February. The two teams who will battle it out for the Vince Lombardi Trophy will be decided by the divisional playoffs over the weekend of January 12th and 13th, followed by the AFC and NFC Championship games on 20th January.
January is a hectic month in other areas of the NFL, with the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl taking place on January 19th, the Senior Bowl happening on 26th January, and then the NFL Pro Bowl on January 27th.
The frenzy of draft activity and coaching personnel shuffling takes place in the months following the Superbowl, ready for it all to get underway once again in September as the regular season kicks off. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for the latest announcements about four NFL league matches that will be taking place in London before the end of 2019!
