American Football Betting Online

If you are looking for a way to add some excitement and variety to your sports betting career, american sports betting is an attractive option. In particular, american football betting can be the perfect solution, thanks to the variety of matches and the number of teams available. You can focus on NFL betting, college football betting or arena football betting.

NFL betting is good for those who like a long season with a lot of matches and teams to consider. Running for nearly seven months, the professional football season is one of the longer american sports betting opportunities. The playoffs and the run up to the championship match, the Superbowl, also provides massive volumes for those who enjoy working the betting exchanges.

College football betting is a bit different. The sheer number of teams and players makes this a very data intensive pursuit. However, the massive popularity of college football means that wager volumes are through the roof from September to December. By January, when the bowl championship series rolls around, things have settled down as teams are eliminated, but odds offered can be very attractive as David vs. Goliath style match ups are arranged.

Arena football has slightly different rules and a smaller number of teams. If you are one of those punters who enjoys a smaller scene and the thrills of niche betting, this might be an attractive sport for you. The players and coaches change with alarming speed, so it is a good small sport for those who like a bit of action but not a broad scope.

As with all american sports betting, launching into NFL betting, college football betting or arena football betting mean you will need to re-educate yourself on odds statements. American football betting doesn't use the fractional or decimal systems favored by UK bookmakers. Most american sports betting is only available in money lines.

Reading the money lines is not difficult, and there are a number of online calculators that can help you make the conversions between the odds offered. Nevertheless, the added complexity can be off-putting to some and lead to confusion when it comes time to lay a wager. Take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the ins and outs of the money lines system to be sure you don't make mistakes and fully understand your options.

Unique odds statements, massive volumes and three flavours of football make american football betting interesting. If you are looking for a new challenge it is certainly worth a try. The profit potential is there and you may just find that playing both sides of the pond enhances your sports investment career.
