To bet on American Football, you should know that you will not have the choice on the competition in betting apps. American soccer is played in the US and it is the NFL, National League of Football, which represents this sport. It is true that there are teams in India for example, but the championship is semi-professional. Far be it from me to question their qualities and talents, I would not want to be tackled by their line of defense, but today the bookmakers offer only the NFL. In any case, if you want to bet on American soccer, you’ll have to find out about it, and it’s not easy to do so on the number one sport in the US. Culturally,
American sports have a hard time being exported. However, in the US, it’s a ratings machine and let’s say it’s a money maker. It is even a real religion in some states like Texas where college soccer is as important as the NFL. Fans of the Friday Night Light series know what I’m talking about. Before betting on a sport as exotic as American soccer, it is always good to be inspired by its culture and what it represents. It’s like betting on Genoa-Sampdoria in Serie A soccer, without knowing that it’s the hottest derby in Italy. Are you ready to bet on American Football? It’s a tough bet that will require you to really invest in learning about the sport. I’ll tell you straight out: Start by being an observer, play little and sure and learn. This sport requires you to be especially humble if you want to increase your bankroll. Like many exotic sports for us Europeans, it is a real challenge, but it is exciting.
The NFL has 32 teams that are divided into conferences. You will notice that most of the teams are in the North East. The number of games per season is limited. This is rare compared to American sports. It is ‘the intensity of the games and the recurrence of the shocks that limit the number of games to preserve as much as possible the physical integrity of the players. A team plays 8 home games and 8 away games. The season is therefore extremely short and lasts from September to February.
The main difficulty is the lack of reference to estimate the level of the teams. And yes, I told you that it would not be easy! Then the 12 best teams face each other during the play-offs which are played in three elimination games. And then it’s the grail, the Super Bowl, the game that makes legends in front of hundreds of millions of viewers. And maybe even you… The Super Bowl is broadcasted in India, but to tell the truth, the biggest flaw of the American soccer is that it lasts forever. The show side and the cutting of the games are a real brake that you can avoid if you watch the games in replay.
How to bet on American soccer
Handicap betting is allowed for NFL games and is kind of the traditional bet for this sport. You can bet on a team winning by +4.5 points. That means your team will win by at least 5 points. This is a bit of a simple soccer bet, as the Win/Loss odds are often below 2. To optimize the odds, try handicap betting. Once you get used to it, you will complain that it is not available on sportsbooks in India. Statistics are essential. American soccer is a sport that is scrutinized in great detail. Looking at the stats of each team is almost as important as the names of the players. Each team has 53 players on its roster. And if you take away the stars, a player’s injury is often anecdotal. And again, you always have ‘the story of the rookie who comes off the bench to save the team.
