The National Football League is undoubtedly the most attended professional sports league in the US. In fact, during the 2014-15 season, an average of 68,400 fans attended each game.
With 32 competing teams, the NFL offers a lot of matchups and betting possibilities. Here are absolutely the best NFL Betting Tips to help you objectively weigh your NFL picks.
Let's look at this example:
In his first game, rookie quarterback scores a couple of touchdown passes, runs for a couple more, commits no turnovers.
Right after the game he gets into the microscope - his every move is analyzed, every word he says is scrutinized. Media outlets proclaim him as the next big NFL superstar, even a sure hall of famer.
But he's just won one NFL game. A season opener at that. Can he repeat the same performance the next game? Can he perform at that high level for the rest of the season?
A single game performance shouldn't be blown out of proportion and over analyzed. Don't look at athletes like Hollywood stars. Veer away from the glitz and glamour.
All of the hype can sway opinion for, or against, any player or team. So get past the publicity. Objectively weigh the chances of each team against this coming week's matchup.
The NFL is one of the toughest sports in the world. Injuries happen - not just in a game, but also while in practice. Knowing which players is injured, how severe his injury is, is a surgery required, how long he will be, or has been, out affects team performance and ultimately, your chance of winning your NFL bet.
Likewise, suspensions due to on-field antics or off-field distractions can throw-off a team's rhythm.
Careless NFL bettors focus only on the availability of star players like quarter backs and running backs. However, equal attention should be given to the availability of role players such as tackles and line backers (for the defensive line) and guards and tight ends (for the offensive line).
Football, after all, is a team sport. It takes all 22 players working on both the offensive and defensive side of the field to win a game.
Also, suspensions can deflate the morale of a team resulting to lackadaisical efforts. Meanwhile, injuries to players when used as a motivation, can boost team play. So before deciding which team to bet on, check who's playing this weekend - read news articles for player suspensions and look at the injury report, even the official NFL website has one.
