Whether you’re looking for point spreads, totals, moneylines, quarter and halftime lines, props, or division, conference and Super Bowl futures, FOX Bet is the place to be for online football betting.
NFL betting is available all season long, starting with the 17-week regular season in September (each team has 16 regular-season games with one bye week) and continuing throughout the postseason all the way to the Super Bowl in February.
A point spread represents a number set by oddsmakers to provide a numerical advantage or disadvantage based on the margin of victory or defeat for a given team. The team that is considered the “favorite” (noted with a “-” sign preceding the number) would need to win the game by a certain number of points while the team that is considered the “underdog” (noted with a “+” sign preceding the number) is given a margin by which the team can lose the game but still “cover” the point spread.
To use an example, if the line is Patriots (-3) vs. Rams (+3): a winning against-the-spread wager on the Patriots would require New England to win by more than 3 points. The Rams are the winning wager in this scenario if the team either wins outright or loses the game by 1 or 2 points. The Rams are also the winning wager if the game ends in a tie, which is possible only during the NFL regular season. If the Patriots win by exactly 3 points, the game is considered a “push” and bettors on both sides of the spread get their wagers refunded.
Live betting, which is sometimes referred to as in-game betting, refers to the ability to wager on many of the same types of wagers summarized above after a game has already begun. All of the same fundamentals apply, but with odds, lines and spreads constantly being updated in response to how a game is unfolding.
Future bets are offered for bettors wishing to take a longer view. Odds are updated and available throughout a season in a wide range of categories. Examples of future bets include (but are not limited to):
Wagering options for the Super Bowl expand greatly and allow bettors to use FOX Bet to wager on everything from whether the opening coin toss will be heads or tails and the length of the national anthem to what color of Gatorade will be poured on the winning coach, with literally hundreds of additional betting opportunities in between.
