NFL Monday Night Football Betting Halftimes Lines

December 1, 2010 NFL Football

NFL Monday Night Football betting is very popular around the world with sides, totals, parlays and teasers.

What gamblers sometimes forget is that at the half another line comes out that is just as easy to bet, sometimes easier.  NFL Monday Night Football betting halftime lines can provide you with a great chance to make money.

NFL Monday Night Football betting at the half involves a few more factors than original game betting. The professional bettors that bet Monday Night Football lines at the half are almost always ready to attack weak NFL Monday Night Football betting lines.  When making Monday Night Football lines at halftime, the bookmaker or sportsbook has just minutes to take everything into account.  Sometimes the sportsbooks will make mistakes with NFL Monday Night Football betting lines at the half. The mistakes on a NFL Monday Night Football betting halftime line can be very costly to the sportsbooks.

Many sportsbooks wait until one or two other sportsbooks put up a halftime number before posting their own Monday Night Football lines.  This takes the initial risk out of making a 2nd half number.  How do sportsbooks make a halftime line and can you actually make a better line than they do?  Most sportsbooks set the NFL Monday Night Football betting number based on half of the original betting line for the game.  They will make a few adjustments off of this NFL Monday Night Football betting number.  The problem with making a line this way is that oftentimes it is bad.  You can’t just simply divide a number in half and expect it to be a good number for the 2nd half.  The game score, situations, statistics, etc, all factor into making a 2nd half number, but very often sportsbooks don’t use all of this data. 

Good sportsbook bettors that watch the first half, factor in the NFL Monday Night Football betting line, and have a feel are going to make better Monday Night football lines at the half than the sportsbooks more often than not.  That is no guarantee of a victory though.  Just because you make a better NFL Monday Night Football betting line than sportsbooks do, does not mean you will always win the bet.  Betting 2nd halves can be profitable but it is not easy.  You have to be ready. Monitor the games as they go to the half and you may find some great betting opportunities and some weak NFL Monday Night Football betting lines.
