Different Ways to Bet on NFL Games

Moneyline Bets

This is one of the most traditional ways to bet on NFL games. By taking a moneyline bet you're essentially just choosing a winner or loser in whichever game you choose to place a wager on. It's very simple to pair moneyline bets with welcome offers from Tennessee sportsbooks.

Spread Bets

Spread bets take into account the amount of point differential between two NFL teams. Let's say the Titans are 5-point favorites in a matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars. On a sportsbook such as BetMGM TN, under the spread you'll see the Titans are -5 while the Jaguars are a +5. This means if you take the Titans' spread of -5 they have to win by five-or-more points. If you choose to take the Jaguars they have to lose by less than five points or just win the game.

Live Bets

Like futures bets, live bets are simple to understand. Live bets take place in the middle of a live game. There are a number of different live bets available during any given NFL game such as next touchdown scorer, result of the next drive, and more. You can even watch moneyline and spread bet odds move throughout a live game based on how the game's playing out and take advantage of favorable odds which means more money in your pocket.

Futures Bets

Making a futures bet is exactly how it sounds: making a bet for a future outcome. If you bet in July on the Titans Super Bowl odds this year, you're making a futures bet. 

Prop Bets

Prop bets are one of the more popular ways people bet during NFL games. Examples of prop bets include picking the first touchdown scorer, choosing how many passing yards Will Levis will throw in a game, and how many sacks the Titans defense will have.

NFL Events to Bet On

So you want to bet on the NFL but when's the best time to make your first bet? Below are the top times and event to dive into the world of NFL sports betting in Tennessee:

NFL Preseason

The NFL preseason officially kicks off the action on the field each and every August. Betting on NFL preseason games can be a bit tougher due to the unknown of which players will suit up and how many plays each player gets. There are three full weeks of NFL preseason games to bet on plus the Week 0 Pro Football Hall of Fame game.

NFL Regular Season Games

From Week 1 through Week 18 there are 272 NFL regular-season games to bet on, spanning from the beginning of September through the first week of January. In the past you'd just have Sundays and Mondays to catch an NFL game but now you can tune in Thursday-Monday and typically find some action on the NFL field to make bets on especially towards the latter half of the year.

NFL Playoffs

Betting on the NFL playoffs is similar to the preseason and regular season except the stakes are higher (for the teams, at least). You can choose how much or little you want to bet on any game and operators like the FanDuel TN sportsbook offer great promos throughout every slate of games.

Super Bowl

There's not a single event on the sports calendar that brings in more money for Tennessee sports betting apps than the Super Bowl. It's routinely the most bet-on event across the United States every season and tends to increase in volume every single year.

With millions of eyes on the game, betting on the Super Bowl is always a fun way to follow along even for the most casual fans. Not only can you bet on who you think will win but there are many prop bets like the color of the winning-teams' Gatorade and result of the coin toss that are fun to try betting on.

NFL Draft

Predicting who goes where in the NFL Draft every spring is gaining popularity. You can find NFL odds on things like who you think the Titans will draft, how many quarterbacks get selected in the first round, and more.
