Tips for betting on American Football

OK, we are pretty sure that if you're considering betting on American football, you're in it to win some money and not just throw it away! So we have put together the following tips to assist you in making the correct choices and to help put you and keep you on that winning streak!

Play and place your bets with a reputable sports book; First and foremost you need to know that there are many fly by nights and dodgy sports books that pop up during the NFL season only to disappear in a puff of smoke after the NFL season is over. There again there are some really great ones that have been around for years and that have great reputations and are trusted and secure places to play and place your bet. Make the correct choice of sports book.

Look for the best odds and lines; Make an informed choice and look for the best lines and odds for each game. There are as we have shown you, more than one reputable sports book out there. So do a bit of homework and look at least two of them to determine which is offering the best odds. When you shop for groceries, either online or in a store, you always compare brand prices and placing your bet should work on the same principle, and you should compare betting lines with the sports books. You should always make your bets based on the best line which gives your the best returns.

Your Money Spend ; Decide on how much you are going to spend and stick to it! Most of you do not make a living by gambling on American Football. With playing and placing your bets online you have no-one to impress and the only person that is going to know wether you have won or lost is yourself. Keep it real and determine before you start betting how much you are going to spend and stick to it.

Create a system for yourself; Wether you are betting for fun or betting to make some good money on the game make sure that you have a system in place for managing your betting. Don't go placing bets in a willy-nilly manner as you might blow all your money in a short space of time without even really getting into the season. Do some homework and make informed choices.  

Record your wins and losses; Make sure you keep some sort of record of the bets you have placed. Start looking at the bets you have placed and where you have won and where you have lost. Look for what betting works for you best and stick to it.   

Be a little Cautious; If you are not a professional sports gambler then be a little cautious with the amount of money you place on a bet and go slowly. Slow and steady is the way to go. Remember the sports books know their stuff. This does not mean that they do not make mistakes, and they do, but keep an eye on what they do and take notice of the betting odds they put out there.

Take everything the sportscaster's say with a pinch of salt and make your own decisions. Most of these people have never placed a bet in their lives and what you hear coming from them are stats and information that they are given and that they are reading off from a teleprompter. Use your own judgment.

Lastly, do some homework, as we mentioned above. Betting can be quite a science and if you are looking to profit from it then make sure you place informed bets. Don't place bets based on your gut feel or what your aunt Mary told you she dreamt of last night. Bet with your head and not your heart.

Wishing you many hours, days and weeks of lucrative betting on the NFL, the all American Sport of American Football!
