NFL betting money lines are an interesting option when it comes to football betting online.
Instead of laying or receiving points with NFL betting, you lay or get money. Sometimes gamblers forget all about money lines in NFL betting but they really should not.

You won’t have bad beats on late backdoor covers. You only need to win the game.
