Football betting keys don’t have to be complex and they don’t have to be hard. If you want to win money at NFL football betting you can keep things simple and basic and win money. Let’s look at some football betting keys. Let’s look at a few simple keys to winning at NFL football betting.
1 – Defense. Regardless of whether or not you are on the favorite or the dog, if you are wagering on a team without defense you are likely in for a long day of losing action. Just as defense wins championships on the field it also wins wagers in football betting. A team that is helpless at stopping their opponent will make you helpless as well in football betting.
2 – Rushing. Teams that can effectively run the ball will eat up clock, control the game's tempo, and have proven to hit a high percentage against the NFL football betting pointspread. By the same token teams that can stop the run, again, control the tempo of the game and also wear down their opponent's confidence, while often forcing mistakes born from desperation.
A team that can control both sides of the line of scrimmage is a team that you want to have money on in football betting, as they will far more often then not control the games that they are in, dictate the pace, and demoralize their opponents.
3 – Turnovers. Teams that don't beat themselves don't beat you in football betting. You want to find matchups of teams that have excellent turnover ratio stats who are up against those with highly negative turnover ratio numbers in football betting. You really don’t want your money on teams that continually turn the ball over.
4 – Kicking game. Time and again, football betting wagers are decided on this highly overlooked aspect of the game. If you have a solid kicker you will win some games in NFL football betting.
Consider defense, rushing, turnovers and the kicking game as you look at football betting this season.
