How to Bet the NFL

Last season was as weird as it gets. No fans at an NFL game is almost unheard of and unusual to be on the couch every NFL Sunday. For this upcoming season, the NFL has given the green light for NFL fans to return to the stadium to watch their favorite team. Every fan is itching to make their bets this season while the sports betting market is expanded to more states that host NFL teams. 

On this page, you'll find links to betting team pages for all 32 NFL football teams. Those pages are loaded with team information and betting data, including season schedules, odds for every game, against-the-spread (ATS) performance, injuries, news, depth charts, standings, and much more.

NFL Against-the-Spread  (ATS) Standings

Spread bets are perhaps the most common types of bet in the U.S. betting market, and that's especially true with the NFL. These are margin-of-victory bets, and oddsmakers set the number at sportsbooks.

Here's an example: Say the New Orleans Saints played the Arizona Cardinals, and oddsmakers listed the spread as such.

  • New Orleans Saints (+2.5)
  • Arizona Cardinals (-2.5)

You can determine which team the underdog is by the plus sign, which is the Saints. The Cardinals, with a minus sign, are the favorites. As 2.5-point favorites, an Arizona spread bet would win if the Cardinals beat the Saints by three or more points. If the Saints either won the game outright or kept the margin within a field goal, that side of the bet would cash.

Against-the-spread (ATS) records thus refer to how often a team has covered those numbers in their games. In the 2020-21 season, the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills tied for the best ATS records in the league, going 11-5. The worst team against the spread was the Dallas Cowboys, who went 5-11.

The Dolphins had the best ATS record at home, finishing an incredible 7-1, while three teams went 2-6 at home: the San Francisco 49ers, Carolina Panthers, and Minnesota Vikings.

The Panthers had very stark splits, as they actually went 7-1 ATS on the road -- the best mark in the league. The Philadelphia Eagles had the poorest performance on the road, finishing just 1-7.

NFL Win Totals

Futures bets are also quite common, and they refer to any wager that settles at a later time than the next game. For example, you can bet on which player will win the NFL MVP, which team will win the Super Bowl, and more.

Some of the most popular futures in the NFL are season win totals, in which bettors are given several wins and can wager over or under that number. For example, the defending Super Bowl champions Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a season win total of 11.5. If you bet over that number, you'd win if they finished with 12 or more regular-season wins. In contrast, if you bet under, you'd cash if they finished with just 11 or fewer.

Here are the win totals for every NFL team for the upcoming 2021-22 season:

  • Kansas City Chiefs: 12
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 11.5
  • Baltimore Ravens: 11
  • Buffalo Bills: 10.5
  • Green Bay Packers: 10.5
  • Los Angeles Rams: 10.5
  • San Francisco 49ers: 10.5
  • Indianapolis Colts: 10
  • Cleveland Browns: 10
  • Dallas Cowboys: 9.5
  • Tennessee Titans: 9.5
  • Seattle Seahawks: 9.5
  • Los Angeles Chargers: 9
  • Miami Dolphins: 9
  • New England Patriots: 9
  • New Orleans Saints: 9
  • Denver Broncos: 9
  • Pittsburgh Steelers: 8.5
  • Minnesota Vikings: 8.5
  • Arizona Cardinals: 8
  • Washington Football Team: 8
  • Carolina Panthers: 7.5
  • Chicago Bears: 7.5
  • Las Vegas Raiders: 7
  • New York Giants: 7
  • Atlanta Falcons: 7
  • Cincinnati Bengals: 6.5
  • Philadelphia Eagles: 6.5
  • Jacksonville Jaguars: 6.5
  • New York Jets: 6.5
  • Detroit Lions: 5
  • Houston Texans: 4

It's no surprise that the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- the opponents in last year's Super Bowl -- are expected to lead the league in wins in 2021-22. The Ravens, upstart Bills, and others shouldn't be too far behind. At the bottom of the list are the Lions and Texans, who will enter this season with a ton of uncertainty.
