Pro football betting for many people is highlighted by Monday Night Football.

It used to be on ABC but has been on ESPN now for some time. NFL betting on Mondays may not be as huge as it once was, but it is still important.

Pro football betting has become a tradition on Monday nights for over 30 years. The first ever Monday night football game was in 1970 between the New York Jets and Cleveland Browns. Monday night football is known around the gambling world as the biggest bail out game in NFL betting. For many years the best pro football betting trend for Monday night football was to take the home underdog. That trend can still be decent but the oddsmaker is also aware that Monday night home dogs have been profitable in pro football betting. Taking just the home team, regardless of the spread, has produced over 60 percent winners through the years in NFL betting. Usually you will see the pro football betting line adjusted to give more weight to the home team.

When you look at pro football betting on Mondays, the first question to ask is whether the game is even worth playing. The other main question is whether you are treating the game as a bail out or not. The home teams are without question the way to start with you handicapping in Monday night pro football betting. If you are going to go against the home team then you better have a good reason. It would also be nice to have the better quarterback as well in your pro football betting. So first concentrate on the home team. Second, look at the better team. Third, look at the better quarterback.

Another option for Monday night pro football betting is to wager on the total. We can get some value on the under if we have other facts to support that option. The final option for Monday night pro football betting is the parlay. Bettors are known to like the favorite and over. The public always likes the favorite and they love to see points scored in NFL betting. If you want to bet a parlay, remember that the pro football betting line is shaded toward the favorite and the over, particularly if the favorite is at home. Consider these options the next time you wager on Monday Night Football.
