The NFL is not only loved in America, but it is also loved by people all over the world. The global appeal of this sport has significantly increased over the last decade, and along with that, so has the appeal of betting on the NFL.
Many people participate in gambling on NFL when games take place, with Sunday being the most popular day for this as this is when the vast majority of them happen.
While betting is a hobby for nearly all who participate, everyone wants to get better at it and become more profitable. There are ways in which you can do this, both by improving your NFL knowledge and by improving your betting strategies.
Here we take a look at what punters can do if they want to enhance their NFL betting in 2020.
Take Advantage of How Bookmakers Have Changed
This is especially important to those who have been betting with the same bookmaker for a number of years. The NFL betting service has changed dramatically in that time, with many new bookmakers jumping on board and a lot of changes made to bets, offers and betting markets.
If you joined a bookmaker because they were the best many years ago, it is unlikely they are the best anymore. There is great competition between bookmakers and this has caused them all to improve their service.
Websites such as TheBookiesoffers.co.uk will help you decide where the best place to bet is, and show you the kind of service you can expect in 2020. If you haven’t changed your bookmaker in a while, there is a good chance that the best service available will be a lot better than what you are currently receiving.
Record Every Bet You Place
If you only change one thing about your betting in 2020, and you don’t already do this then make sure this is it.
Recording your wagers is vitally important if you want to analyze and improve. You cannot improve your betting if you don’t have facts about what works for you and what doesn’t. The only way to get those facts is to see where you have made money and where you have lost it.
This can help you shape how you bet in the future, and it can also be used to decide the stakes you place. For example, if you see yourself making good money on one particular bet type then you can think about implementing larger stakes when placing those bets.
See something going in the opposite direction, losing you money? Simple, you can cut back your stakes on those betting markets.
Any improvement you make in the future can only be done if you have the right data to show you where you are going right and wrong.
Explore New Betting Markets
The choice of markets on offer has never been as good for players, making it the right time to explore and try out new things.
You should always stick to markets that you are good with and that you understand, but there is no harm in trialling new markets to go alongside those.
There are many different ways in which you can bet on the NFL. Some have been around for many years, while others are still relatively new, and may not have been seen by some punters.
Here are three new types of betting you can look out for during the 2020 season.
Player Prop Betting
The love of fantasy sports has caused bookmakers to bring markets like this into their service. Player prop betting is betting on a player during a game.
For example, a star receiver such as Julio Jones of the Falcons will have markets for his total yards, number of receptions, number of touchdowns and maybe a couple more. You can bet over or under the line on these, over is basically him to have a good game, while under is for him to have a bad game.
The markets on offer change depending on the player position, so running backs will have carries rather than receptions, and they often have two markets for yards, one which is on the ground and one that is total yards.
If you have previously played and enjoyed fantasy sports and you are looking to combine that with betting then it is these markets that will allow you to do that.
In Play Markets
The rise of in play betting continues and this includes betting in play on NFL games. There are many people who love in play betting and the fact that it offers a completely different type of wagering to anything else available.
With in play markets you can watch the game, work out what you think is going to happen and bet accordingly. You are seeing things unfold and trying to work out better than the bookmakers what is going to be next.
You will find a range of in play betting markets available for players to use, some of which are available before a game and some which are specially created to be used in the in play section. These only come live when the game starts, and are fascinating to watch and follow as the game develops.
We’ve all seen special betting markets available for huge games such as the most recent Super Bowl. However, these are becoming bigger and bookmakers are creating them for games throughout the regular season.
These are usually based around the nationally televised games, or games taking place on the same day but are a great way to bet on multiple events to happen.
For example, bookmakers will put together three players in three different games to score a touchdown at anytime in the game and give enhanced odds on the treble to be successful.
This is just one example of what you can expect to see with bookmakers who are creating and promoting these. If you want something unique and completely different, keep your eye out for them during the season.
