  • TOTAL47.5
  • SUPER BOWL ODDS
3 2 In their straight up and ATS loss versus Miami, Josh Allen threw it 63 times, led the Bills in rushing, took four sacks and had three fumbles with one lost. Allen needs more help or we fear Buffalo runs out of steam down the stretch. 2-1 2-1 1-2

  • MONEYLINE+120
  • TOTAL44.5

Week 4 NFL Odds (vs. New England)

  • SPREAD -10.5
  • MONEYLINE-525
  • TOTAL39.5

Rankings are based on team’s performance against the spread and straight up, as well as roster moves this year and strength of schedule.

GLOSSARY:

ATS (Against the spread): A team’s record versus the NFL pointspread.
SU (Straight up): Essentially the win/loss record or moneyline record.
OU (Over/Under): The team’s record of either Over or Under the total score between two teams.
SOS (Strengths of Schedule): A team’s schedule difficulty based on the opponent’s record the previous season.
HOW THE NFL POWER RANKINGS ARE MADE

Our NFL power rankings are published weekly on Tuesdays but aren’t created in the standard, mainstream way. While the competition ranks teams on wins, the margin of victory, and overall talent, our rankings focus on elements that matter to bettors: the spread, moneyline, and total.

The element we consider the most is a team’s ATS record, AKA record against the spread. As the spread is the most popular bet in American sports, it’s straightforward logic to make it an essential part of our rankings. The margin of victory versus the spread is also a big part of our rankings. A team that consistently covers the spread by a wide margin will rank higher on our list.

As moneyline wagers are simply wins straight up, it’s the second element we look to when making our rankings. If a team is on a roll versus the moneyline, it’s a positive for bettors.

Last but not least is the total – AKA the combined final score of both teams. While the total won’t be taken as seriously as the spread and moneyline, it’s still a big part of NFL betting. When a team’s ATS and win/loss record are close, we look to an advantage in the OVER or UNDER to make our final rankings. Neither the OVER nor UNDER have an advantage. It simply comes down to whichever total is more consistent.

Team talent is taken into account and just like any other power rankings. We’re going to give a superstar like Tom Brady a long leash before burying his team in the rankings. That said, you can be the worst team in football, but if your ATS record is dominant, you’ll rank high.

HOW TO BET ON THE NFL AT BOVADA

You won’t find another sport that meshes with betting better than the NFL. For most games on one day, a conservative 17-game season ensures maximum effort every game, and unlike some sports, it has general win margins of three, seven, and 10.

SO HERE’S HOW IT WORKS.

SPREAD

The most important NFL wager is the point spread or the spread. These NFL odds are created in vegas and are followed by most sportsbooks both online and off.

Here’s how a spread would look at Bovada:
– Detroit Lions +10 (-105)
– Tampa Bay Buccaneers -10 (-115)

The spread in this game is 10. Tampa Bay is the favorite, while Detroit is the underdog. Essentially, the Buccaneers have to win by more than 10 points for this wager to be a win. Meanwhile, the Lions can lose by up to 10 for their wager to be a win.

If Tampa wins by 10, the wager is a push, and your money is returned.

The numbers in brackets beside the spread are the “juice” attached to the bet. Essentially, it’s the commission for a bookie hosting your wagers and the amount of money you have to risk to win $100. You can bet any amount you want, and the odds will adjust accordingly.

If you’re betting on Tampa, you must bet $115 to win $100. If you want the Lions, you must bet $105 to win $100. Besides the spread, the juice is a way that oddsmakers balance action. If they see most of the action on Tampa Bay, they may shift the juice first to ensure bets are being placed easily.

The point for oddsmakers in sports betting is to balance action, so the juice in the middle guarantees a profit.

MONEYLINE

The very bottom: How to Deposit with Crypto section can be removed until I’ve provided the writeup. Instead, that is a “How to Place NFL Parlays” sub-section after “Moneyline”

How to Place NFL Parlays

Now that you know how it all works, you can start placing NFL singles right away. Or, you can risk more to win more with NFL parlays! NFL parlays are combination bets that allow you to combine up to 14 bets – whether it’s the spread, moneyline, or total – to make one giant jackpot bet! We’ve seen $5 14-team parlays with a potential to pay out $10,000 in one shot. The only issue is if one of your 14 wagers lose, the whole bet is a loss.

That’s right, it’s all or nothing. The juice attached to each bet is also a factor in how much you get paid. Either way, it’s an exciting way to watch NFL games, especially if you’re parlay is close to hitting!
