Betting options & Sportsbook rules
The NFL is one of the world's most popular sports and attracts huge amounts of money in betting every season. Therefore, there is a huge variety in betting options for each game played.
Some of the most popular betting options are: money line (picking a winner between the two sides), line handicap (or also known as spread betting, handicap betting, or spread line handicap betting), total points (same as in basketball betting, accumulation of points of both teams in one match).
Other betting options would be divided into period betting, similar to the ones we have in basketball.
Therefore, a punter may choose to make a wager on a quarter winner, quarter spread betting or quarter total points betting. Same goes for all four quarters, as well as for the halftime bets.
Most of the reputable sportsbooks have all of their rules inside the whole sportsbook rulebook. You still need to check these and avoid negative surprise such as a bookie not counting overtime when settling its bets.
