I Live in the United States. How Can I Bet on NFL Football?

Of course bettors in the United States can wager on NFL football at Las Vegas and Atlantic City sportsbooks, but there are some excellent online sportsbooks as well.

We prefer BetOnline for point spreads, money lines, and over/under bets because they post their lines earlier than most sportsbooks, and offer industry standard vig (10%) on all of these types of wagers. We also compare odds at JustBet and Bovada, but their lines usually get posted later. Bovada has industry standard vig on point spreads & money lines, but often charges a higher vig on money line bets.

We recommend for prop bets and live betting. For 2013-2014 playoff games they are offering 20+ prop bets for each game, several days before game time. On game day they’ve been adding more props, and live betting as well. With Bovada’s live betting, bettors can wager on hundreds of things that might happen during a game, including the results of every possession. This is fun stuff for a low price, with live bets starting for as little as $1 per bet.

What are the Best Betting Sites for NFL Football Wagers?

Since the most popular NFL football bets are on point spreads, money lines, and over/unders, BetOnline gets the nod. They post their point spreads and over/under odds incredibly fast – almost right away after both teams have finished playing their previous games. For example, as soon as the AFC & NFC Wild Card games finished on Saturday, BetOnline posted their odds for the divisional playoff games.

Early lines translate into potential value for smart bettors. As we get closer to game time and the public starts betting, the lines move. As the lines move, value is gained on some bets, and lost on others. Value may have been lost on the winning bet – the bet you wanted to make. This is the main reason we rank BetOnline #1, because they can offer value on the most popular bets – value that is difficult or impossible to find at other online sportsbooks.

Where Can I Find 2013 – 2014 NFL Playoff & Super Bowl Betting Lines

At SBL, that’s what we do! For the latest, up-to-date 2011 – 2012 NFL playoff and Super Bowl betting lines, visit our NFL betting lines page. We also post them at the top of the homepage.

The 2013 – 2014 NFL Divisional and Super Bowl playoff betting lines are constantly updated. At this time of the season, there is more betting action than ever. This means that the playoff betting lines are constantly changing, offering value on different bets at different times. If you see a line you think is showing a lot of value, you might be smart to bet on it quickly rather than later. If that line is getting most of the betting action, it’s likely to move in the other direction. Get the value while it’s available.

What Online Sportsbooks Have the Best 2014 NFL Playoff Betting Options?

If you’re a casual bettor just looking to have some fun, the Bovada Sportsbook is probably the best choice. While they post their odds later than BetOnline, they have the widest selection of bets.

2013 – 2014 playoff point spreads and over/under odds are getting posted within 24-36 hours after BetOnline, which is 5-6 days before the games begin. Money lines are getting posted 2-3 days before each playoff game. Although the lines are a bit late, none of the other US books can compete with Bovada’s selection of props and live betting. They offer the typical types of player & team props, along with a good selection of fun prop bets that can’t be found at other betting sites. Some of the prop bets are downright silly, but silly can also be a lot of fun.

They also have the best live betting interface of all the US friendly online sportsbooks. The live betting software is sleek & contemporary, and it only takes a few minutes to get completely comfortable with it. As mentioned above, hundreds of live bets can be made during every 2014 NFL playoff game. For the 2013 – 2014 Super Bowl, this is where we’ll be placing our live bets, and it’s going to be a lot of fun. Load your account with $100, and you can make tons of fun little bets.

Which NFL Betting Sites Accept American Customers?

There are more NFL betting sites that accept American customers than most people realize. There are still dozens of them out there, but which ones are the best? At SBL, we’ve bet at most of them, and have narrowed it down to the three US sportsbooks that you see all over this site. They are, JustBet, and Bovada.

Other US friendly sportsbooks that are not listed on this site aren’t listed for some specific reason. It may be a lack of trust we have for them, late payouts, bounced payout checks, crappy betting software, high vig, or a variety of other things. The NFL betting sites we recommend have proven themselves to us over a long period of time, and tend to get high ratings from most of their customers as well.

What Types of Sportsbook Deposits Options are Available for US Residents?

The types of deposit (and withdrawal) options available are different at every online sportsbook. All of our recommended NFL betting sites accept Visa credit & debit cards for US bettors. BetOnline and JustBet also offer Mastercard & Amex. From there, the types of deposit options vary.

At all of our recommended NFL sportsbooks, a variety of ewallets and direct banking options are available. Some offer Click2Pay, Western Union, Money Gram, bank wires, electronic instant checks (eChecks), and other deposit options. The list continues to change as well, with new deposit & withdrawal options coming and going all the time. For the latest list of deposit options available to American bettors, go to the cashier or banking sections of each online sportsbook.

Do Las Vegas and/or Atlantic City Casinos Have Online Sportsbooks?

No they don’t. If/when official legislation is passed for online sports betting, we won’t be seeing any Las Vegas or Atlantic City casinos developing online sportsbooks. The laws for sportsbook operators in the United States are much clearer than it is for bettors. Bettors in America wager on NFL football every day during the season, but we’re doing it at online sportsbooks operated outside of the United States. If you can’t make it to Las Vegas or Atlantic City but want to bet on the 2013 – 2014 NFL playoffs or Super Bowl, check out our recommended NFL betting sites instead.

Where Can I Bet on the 2013 – 2014 Super Bowl?

Every year, the Super Bowl draws more betting interest than any other single event in the world. Nobody knows exactly how much is wagered on the Super Bowl, but it’s into the billions internationally.

For US bettors who want to wager on the 2013 – 2014 Super Bowl, we recommend the same online sportsbooks you’ve read about above. For the best point spreads, money lines, and over/under bets, we rank BetOnline #1. We also recommend JustBet and Bovada. Bovada will almost certainly offer the widest variety and largest volume of Super Bowl prop bets and live bets as well.
