America’s Most-Watched Sport

The NFL is the top dog in American sports fandom and viewership. Super Bowl LVII between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles drew over 115 million viewers in what was the most-watched event in the history of the sport.

The American Gaming Association also estimated prior to the Big Game that over 50 million Americans would wager $16 billion in total. Basically, there’s no doubt that the gridiron is the premiere location for American sports entertainment.

With that in mind we’ve created this page to have every resource you need to stay on top of the NFL and lock in your bets with the best information available. This page is updated daily with the latest Predictions & Odds, NFL Futures, and the current NFL standings in the league. Consider this your NFL homepage.

NFL Picks Against the Spread

Betting ‘against the spread’ is one of the most popular ways to bet on the NFL. When betting against the spread you are not just picking a winner or loser, you are betting on the win/loss margin. See our weekly NFL picks against the spread!  

For example, if Kansas City Chiefs are -10.5 (-110) and Houston Texans are +10.5 (-110) then you are betting on Kansas City winning by at least 10.5 points, or Houston losing by no more than 10.5 points.

Over/Under NFL Picks

Over/under NFL bets involve predicting whether the total points in a game will be over or under a predetermined number. With an over/under bet you are not picking a team to win, you are only betting on the combined total amount of points the teams will score during the game.

For example, you might have an over/under market that looks like this:

TeamTotal Points
Philadelphia EaglesO 45 (-110)
Washington CommandersU 45 (-110)

In this example, ‘O 45’ means over 45 total points and ‘U 45’ means under 45 total points.

At WSN you can find all the over/under odds for NFL games along with picks and predictions from our resident experts.

Over/under bets can also be made for futures bets. For example:

Saquon Barkley Rushing YardsOdds
Over 1200.5-110
Under 1200.5-110

Here you are betting on Saquon Barkley’s total rushing yards this season; over or under 1200.5 yards.

Our NFL experts cover all the top player over/under specials during the offseason, giving you the best futures picks for the upcoming season.

NFL Odds Moneyline Picks

Moneyline wagers are the simplest form of NFL betting. This market only cares about who wins a particular game, not how it happens, what the context was, or which team was favored. The odds on a moneyline bet reflect the implied probability of each team winning as well as determining your winnings. For example, if a team has odds of -500 then they have a strong probability of winning, but a team with +400 odds would have much thinner chances of winning. 

Using these same odds as a frame of reference, a bettor would need to risk $500 to profit $100 on -100 odds. On the other hand, a bettor would win $400 of profit for a $100 bet with +400 odds.

Moneyline betting is a really easy way to get into NFL betting if you are a beginner. At WSN we provide moneyline odds and picks for every NFL game we cover so you’ll never miss out on a bet!

You can find out more about moneyline betting in our Moneyline Betting Guide.

NFL Parlay & Teaser Picks

Parlay and teaser bets are a great way to add some extra excitement to your betting. NFL parlays and teasers allow you to combine multiple bets into a single wager, vastly increasing the risk/reward of your bet.

Parlays:

An NFL parlay bet stacks multiple single bets in a single wager. In order to win the parlay you must pick the correct outcome for every event in your bet. As you stack more and more bets into your parlay, the probability of winning decreases but the potential winnings increase significantly.

Check out our full video guide on parlay betting here.

Teasers:

Teasers work very similarly to parlays except that they allow you to shift the NFL odds point spread or NFL odds over/under line in your favor. This gives the bettor an edge and as a result the sportsbook will usually give a slightly worse payout on your wager. The more you move the spread, the more the sportsbook will cut your payout.

Teaser bets are extremely popular in NFL betting where ‘teasing the underdog’ and ‘teasing the favorite’ can be profitable strategies. Be sure to check WSN every week for the best NFL teaser bets.

For more in-depth information on teaser bets check out our video guide on teasers.

NFL Futures Picks

As the name implies, an NFL futures bet is a wager placed on an event in the distant future. For example, the winner of the next Super Bowl, or Patrick Mahomes’ total passing yards for the season.

Since a futures bet covers a long period of time the odds can move significantly during the course of the wager. As a result, it is possible to get very favorable odds and win a lot of money if you make a good pick early on.

That’s where WSN comes in. We love futures bets and have an entire section dedicated to NFL futures picks and predictions. Our odds are constantly updated to ensure you have the latest information at all times. From individual honors such as Coach of the Year and NFL MVP, to team triumphs like the AFC Championship and NFC Championship, our NFL experts have got you covered.

Facts About the NFL

  • The NFL consists of 32 teams divided into two Conferences. The two Conferences are made up of the two former leagues before they were joined into the modern NFL in 1967 and held the first Super Bowl that year. The Conference rings that are awarded to the winners of the separate conferences are remnants of the old two-league system.
  • NFL Players didn’t have to wear helmets until 1943.
  • The most valuable franchise as of 2023 was the Dallas Cowboys with a price tag of $7.6 billion.
  • The NFL season is broken into 17 games across 18 weeks of football. The top seven teams in each conference qualify for the postseason, but only the top seed in each conference gets a bye. Those teams then compete in a bracket-style elimination set-up until a Super Bowl champion is crowned.

Where Can You Legally Bet on the NFL in the US?

Betting on the NFL is dependent on whether or not your home state allows sports betting. If you’re in a sports betting friendly state like Nevada or New Jersey then it’s only a matter of downloading and signing up to a sportsbook in your state. However, there are some states that do not have such friendly legislation.

Check out our map of the United States to quickly see what the situation is like in your state. From there navigate to your state page to get a complete breakdown of the legislation in your area and how to sign up for legal sports betting.

What is Fantasy Football (DFS)?

Fantasy Football is a major pastime in the US. In fantasy football fans create their own leagues with each player drafting players from different positions onto their teams. Players get points each week depending on different stats based on the players they chose. At the end of the season, everyone in your fantasy league compares stats and finds a winner.

The “draft” phase of Fantasy Football can be very competitive so be sure to go in with a plan if it is your first time!

DFS, or Daily Fantasy Sports, is a viral betting option based on traditional “Fantasy Football”. DFS is usually classified as a game of chance by most states and is therefore legal in most states.

Get started with DFS with our guide on where DFS is allowed. The guide also has tips on how to get started past account creation.

How Much Money Does the USA Bet on the Super Bowl?

NFL and Super Bowl betting have skyrocketed in recent years as sports betting has expanded throughout the country. The AGA estimated over $16 billion in wagers would be placed on Super Bowl LVII in 2023, and the estimates for future Super Bowls are sure to be even higher.

Biggest NFL Events of the Year

The NFL doesn’t stop after the Super Bowl. Even before the Super Bowl Winner Rings are handed out the NFL is already in motion for next year’s events. Here is a breakdown of the traditional NFL timeline.

The offseason begins (March)

Players typically start to move in March as trades and later free-agent signings are made. The NFL Draft also happens in late April and allows franchises to either plot their respective courses for the future or retool a roster they believe is ready to contend for a title.

Off-season mini-camps and the pre-season are usually reserved for training. However, there are also three preseason games, where coaches can evaluate their players and cut the roster to its 55-man maximum.

Regular Season Begins (Early Sept.)

The NFL regular season is divided into 18 weeks that begin on Sept. 5th. Each of the 32 teams in the league plays a 17-game schedule with an off week known as a “bye week” for each team. The games are played on Mondays and Thursdays including the famous Thanksgiving Day NFL Kickoff Game.

The Playoffs (January)

The playoffs determine which teams will go on to fight for their conference championships. Teams from each conference compete in the Super Wild Card and Divisional rounds, the conference championship, and ultimately, the Super Bowl.
