How to Pick Against the Spread?

There are many different ways for NFL fans to enjoy betting on football. Picking “against the spread” or “betting on point spreads” is a favorite and classic method for football enthusiasts. In every NFL football game, there is a favorite and an underdog to win. Popular sportsbooks and odds makers decide how big a favorite is by a certain amount of points and that becomes the spread for betters.

The easiest way to understand the spread is to think of it like a handicap on certain teams that are perceived as better. If the New York Jets are the underdog versus the New England Patriots, then you can expect a spread similar to +7.5 for the Jets. This means that if the Jets bring the final score of the game within 7.5 points, you would win betting on them as the underdog. In the world of NFL picks, there are many variables that elude even the most seasoned odds makers. That's where OddsChecker comes in. Our team of experts and analysts bring you the most thoroughly researched NFL picks against the spread. Whenever there are value plays, you can be assured that we have posted them for our audience.

How to Pick the Over/Under in the NFL?

Most NFL fans are familiar with another classic way to place bets, the over/under. This method represents the total amount of points allowed in each game. What makes this betting style unique and interesting is the new dimension of the matchup to consider. You must predict how two team’s offensive and defensive lines stack up together. It’s also very simple to understand.

Instead of selecting one team to win, you are betting on the amount of points scored. Take a look at this example:

Kansas City Chiefs vs New York Giants

Over 37.5 (-110)

Under 37.5 (-110)

The oddsmakers have this matchup set at 37.5 total cumulative points. When it's down to the last minutes of the fourth quarter, and the Chiefs are leading 21 - 14 for a cumulative amount of 35 points, fans across the country are on the edge of their seat from a close game. If you bet on the under, your bet is currently profitable and you are hoping neither team scores from here. If a late touchdown or even a field goal is scored, then the total points will go over 37.5, eliminating any under betters.

As you can imagine, this makes games exciting in the later quarters and even one sided games can be thrilling for NFL betters. A commonly asked question is why is there often a half a point added in over/under and spread picks? This is for the bookmakers. The half a point will ensure that there is never a tie in these bets, meaning there will never be a “push”. A push means the bet is a draw and it is not profitable for the oddsmakers or betters.
