There are two options you can choose from football betting. One is the college football and the other one is the National Football League (NFL). Football is considered as one of the most heavily gambled on sport in the United States. In fact, in 2009 horse race Malaysia Jay Kornegay, executive director of the race and sports book at the Las Vegas Hilton, reported $92 million drawn to sports books from the Superbowl.In this article you will learn how to achieve a successful football betting.1. Decide for an amount to be bet. A good starting point for a novice gambler is $100. But for some professional bettors, they bet up to an average amount of $20,000 per game. Many online sportsbooks accept wagers as low as $1, so, it would really depend on you.2. Look for an outlet where you could place your bets. If you live in or near Las Vegas, you don’t have to go far to find a sportsbook. But in case you are out of the said city, you can just contact a bookie, an individual who takes wagers just as a sportsbook would, or you could bet online. There are many websites that offer betting on football games.3. After selecting an outlet, it is time now to do football betting. There are many types of bet on a football game that you can choose from. The most basic and commonly bet being the point spread wager. In every football game, one team is favored over another. So if a weak team (let’s say the Miami Dolphins) is playing a strong team (New England Patriots), the Patriots would be favored to win. Let’s say they are favored by 7 points. You have two options here: (1) Bet the Patriots and hope they win by more than 7 or (2) bet the Dolphins and hope they don’t lose by more than 7. If the Patriots win by exactly 7, it’s a “push” and you get your money back.4. If you want to bet the Patriots and you’re in a casino sportsbook, approach a betting window and say, “I’d like the Patriots at minus 7 for 10 dollars, please.” If there are sudden changes, the teller will confirm your bet anyway and give you a slip of paper indicating your wager so you have nothing to worry. Keep the ticket, if you win your bet, you’ll be cashing it in. Procedure is almost the same when in an online, but of course, there is no teller. You just simply go to the “football” tab, click the box next to the Patriots, enter your wager, and click “Place Bet.” Most sites ask you to click a box to confirm your bet. The money is immediately deducted from your account, but if you win you are paid the amount of your bet plus your winnings.Look so easy isn’t it? So, give it a try now. But remember gambling is like a drinking, it can be addictive and a costly one. Be wise in settling money. But never bet more than you can afford to lose. Remember, there’s no such thing as a guaranteed winner when it comes to sports betting.
