Factors to look at when making NFL Bets

December 1, 2010 NFL Football

NFL bets can be made based on a variety of factors. Some of these factors are more important than others when looking at NFL betting. Let’s consider home field and underdogs when making NFL bets.

NFL bets are made by many people on the home team. Gamblers in NFL betting just don’t like wagering on road teams. You need to remember that the home field advantage is one of the most overrated factors in NFL betting. While the general theory is that home field is worth a field goal when considering NFL bets, some home fields command a greater price than others.

Conversely there are some home teams, and venues, that are virtually worthless as far as an edge to consider in NFL bets. When the public is eager to bet on certain home teams either because they are strong clubs, (such as Indianapolis and New England,), or because it is an above average home team in a tough venue, (Such as Denver or Washington), the price of that public demand will be reflected in the odds on NFL bets.

When a good team is on the road, however, and playing at a place such as Detroit, there is no real public demand or respect for the home team which means that the three point home field advantage is not likely tacked onto the price in NFL bets.

The most important thing to remember when you make NFL bets is that the gambling public’s comfort zone is with the home team, as they have been conditioned to believe in that mythical home field advantage as it has been drilled into all of our brains since we began watching and betting on football.

Since the public is inclined to look first towards the home team, (especially when favored), the price of that team is often more than what it actually is worth in NFL bets. This means you can serious consider underdogs when making NFL bets. You don’t even need to look at other factors. Just consider taking the points with your NFL bets. It doesn’t get much easier than that in NFL betting.
