How to bet on Football

How do odds work in football? Every game offers a set of football lines, each providing unique opportunities to get involved in the game. Some of these include: over/under betting, moneyline bets, parlays, and prop bets. Betting on football can be a great way to stay more involved in the game.

Keep an eye on Betway Sports to keep up with all the football betting trends. To learn more, visit our How to bet on football guide which provides you with all the information you need to get you started.

How to read football odds?

There are a few key pieces of information to look out for on football betting apps. Look out for figures such as “-6” or “+3.5,” which indicate the spread, or O/U 44.5, which indicates the over/under total. Figures such as -240 or +310 provide the game’s moneyline.

Moneyline Football

A football moneyline is the line on the game’s outcome. Most matchups do not feature teams of identical quality, so a moneyline levels the playing field. Here’s an example:

The 8-1 Philadelphia Eagles are hosting the 2-7 New York Giants. Because the Eagles boast a superior record and home-field advantage, their moneyline for the game might be -400. That means a $400 bet will return just a $100 profit. Meanwhile, the New York Giants would be underdogs of around +400, meaning a $100 bet would yield a $400 profit.

What is a 3-way moneyline in football? A 3-way moneyline is when either a win, loss, or draw/tie is in effect. These can be relevant for NFL overtime games.

Football Point Spread

Football picks against the spread -- similar to moneylines -- are another way to even the playing field of a given matchup. NCAA football picks against the spread are often very dramatic, sometimes as high as -35 (or more). A given Michigan football spread against a non-conference team such as Appalachian State could approach historic highs, although App State did win at the Big House back in 2006.

Spread betting in football means you take points, for example -7 or +6.5, and add it to the total points scored by a given team. A Monday Night Football spread can be anywhere from -0.5 to -14.

Football Over/Under

What is an over/under in football betting? Let’s say the O/U line is set at 44.5. This means that bettors can wager on the total points scored by both teams either exceeding or falling short of that number. Football over/under bets are one of the most popular forms of NFL bets.

Live Football Betting

NFL live betting, college football live betting, and CFL live betting are some other popular types of football betting. A live bet occurs during a game, which means the odds have been adjusted to reflect what has happened since kickoff. You can bet live football on Betway, which offers a full set of betting options even after a game has started.

Football Player Props

NFL player props and College football player props are great ways to get involved in betting without wagering on the actual final score. Here is an example:
  • Eagles QB Jalen Hurts has a passing touchdown O/U of 2.5

If a game is projected to be a blowout, props can be a fun way to stay involved. Thus, player props for Thursday Night Football games are often very exciting.

Parlay Football

What is a football parlay? A football parlay is when multiple bets are combined to form one larger bet, and football-parlay betting is one of the most popular forms of wagering.

Here’s an example:
  • The Philadelphia Eagles are -6.5 favorites to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers at home
  • The over/under for the Washington Commanders and Arizona Cardinals game is set at 44.5
  • A bettor takes the Eagles -6.5 and the over in the Commanders/Cardinals game. For the bet to hit, the Eagles must win by at least 6.5 points AND the total game score must exceed 44.5 points in the Commanders/Cardinals game. Otherwise, the bet will not hit.

Parlays are a fun way to raise and track multiple wagers at once.

Football Same-Game Parlay

A parlay can also be limited to a single game. When there is only one game going on at a given time, this can be a fun way to simulate the feeling of a Sunday afternoon with multiple games at the same time. Thus, a Thursday Night Football same-game parlay, a Sunday Night Football same-game parlay, a Monday Night Football same-game parlay, or a college football same-game parlay can all be great ways to stay engaged with your bets.

Here’s an example:
  • For a Monday Night Football same-game parlay, the Philadelphia Eagles are -6.5 favorites to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers at home
  • The over/under for the Eagles/Steelers game is set at 44.5
  • A bettor takes the Eagles -6.5 and the over. For the bet to hit, the Eagles must win by at least 6.5 points AND the total game score must exceed 44.5 points. Otherwise, the bet will not hit.


Popular Events for Betting on Football

Some football games are more popular to bet on than others. For Sunday football odds or Thanksgiving football odds, the amount of money wagered on individual games should speak for itself. However, many bettors also take interest in odds relating to entire NFL 2023 season. For example: NFL futures, NFL MVP 2023, etc. College football futures are also very popular.

Football Preseason Betting

Preseason football offers bettors a chance to place football bets before the regular season even starts! Ahead of the 2023 football season, the preseason started all the way back with the Hall of Fame Game in the beginning of August. Find NFL Preseason odds at Betway!

Football Regular-Season Games

Betting on football games is available during every week of the regular season. Since 2021, the NFL’s regular season lasts 18 weeks, and each week offers new football weekly odds and new football weekly lines.

The final weeks of the season are particularly interesting, as teams put it all on the line to compete for a playoff spot.

Football Playoffs

NFL playoff games and the College Football Playoff games offer unique betting opportunities. These games are of greater magnitude, and home-field advantage can make a big difference, giving bettors even more to consider.

NFL Playoff Betting

Bets placed on the NFL playoffs odds involve some of the highest-stakes wagering of all. As a result, NFL playoff odds can swing at the drop of a hat due to a key injury, which is something bettors must pay attention to, since many players are banged up at the end of a long season.

AFC Championship Game odds and NFC Championship Game betting lines are among the most sought-after football playoff odds, often pitting the biggest rivals in each conference against one another.

College Football Playoff Odds

While teams such as Michigan and Ohio State have some of the best odds to make the College Football Playoff in 2023, there are many other playoff-related options to consider when wagering during college football’s 2023 season. College Football Playoff odds swing week to week based on upsets and rivalry games, so keep checking to see which teams are leading the pack.

Super Bowl Odds

Who has the best odds to win the Super Bowl at the end of the 2023 NFL season? The Eagles and Chiefs look to be among the favorites, which means we could see Jason Kelce face his brother Travis Kelce in the big game for a second year in a row!

Keep checking the Betway sportsbook to see how Super Bowl odds and Super Bowl lines change each week.

Football Individual Awards Betting Odds

There are a whole host of odds for the 2023 NFL season involving awards and honors that won’t be revealed until the 2024 NFL Awards Show. These include the NFL Rookie of the Year (both on offense and defense), the NFL MVP award, the NFL Defensive Player of the Year, the NFL Coach of Year, and the NFL Comeback Player of the Year.

Bets on award winners are considered football futures bets.  You can also place futures bets at Betway throughout the NFL and college football 2023 seasons.

Football MVP

Who will be the MVP of football for 2023? Some favorites at Betway include Tua Tagovailoa, Patrick Mahomes, and Jalen Hurts (all quarterbacks).

The football MVP in the 2022 season was Mahomes, who won his second award.

NFL Betting FAQs

When does Football season start?

The college football season kicks off in late August, and the NFL season usually begins in early September. This is important to remember: College football and the NFL are NOT on the same timeline.

How are Football odds determined?

Football odds are determined by Betway’s bookmakers based on a combination of factors, including team performance, player injuries, and public betting trends. Be sure to check Betway every day to see if the betting lines have changed.

What is a moneyline bet in football?

A football moneyline is a bet on the game’s winner. Most matchups do not feature teams of identical quality, so a moneyline evens out the playing field.

Example:

The 8-1 Philadelphia Eagles are hosting the 2-7 New York Giants. Because the Eagles boast a superior record and a home-field advantage, their moneyline for the game might be -400. That means a $400 bet will return just a $100 profit. Meanwhile, the New York Giants would be underdogs of around +400, meaning a $100 bet would provide a $400 profit.

What is a parlay bet in football?

A parlay bet in football occurs when multiple bets are combined to form one larger bet. Football parlay betting is one of the most popular forms of wagering.

Example:

  • The Philadelphia Eagles are -6.5 favorites to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers at home

  • The over/under for the Washington Commanders and Arizona Cardinals game is set at 44.5

  • A better takes the Eagles -6.5 and the over in the Commanders/Cardinals game. For the bet to hit, the Eagles must win by 6.5 points AND the total game score must exceed 44.5 points in the Commanders/Cardinals game. Otherwise, the bet will not hit.

Most parlays have to be locked in before the games start. Otherwise, the bet will be considered a “live parlay.”

What does -1 mean in football betting?

When you see a negative number in a football betting line, for example -1, you are seeing the spread of the game, indicating that the favorite is favored by just a single point.
 
In this situation, if the favorite wins by at least two points, then that team wins the spread bet. If they win by one point, the bet will be a push, and the wager will be returned. Any other outcomes would mean the wager is lost.

What does over/under mean in football betting?

Over/under betting in this context is a bet on the cumulative score of the game (i.e. the total number of points scored by both teams). Let’s say the over/under line is set at 44.5. This means that bettors can either wager on the total score by both teams either exceeding or falling short of that number. Football over/under bets are one of the most popular forms of NFL bets.

What are the top teams in the NFL this year?

Midway through the 2023 NFL season, the top teams in the NFL included the Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles, San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions, and Baltimore Ravens. Betway Super Bowl odds all include these teams among the favorites.

What are the top teams in college football this year?

Midway through the 2023 college football season, the top teams include Georgia, Michigan, Ohio State, Florida State, and Washington. Betway college football odds list some of these teams as some of the favorites to win the 2023-24 College Football Playoff.
