What You Should Know When Betting on the NFL This 2022

Everyone can make a sports bet since it’s relatively easy to do. One only needs to choose the sport they’re interested in, register, decide on the winning team, and ultimately place their bet. 

However, making a spontaneous bet differs from making an insightful one. So, if you want to gain the best odds with your bets, it’s essential to equip yourself with betting tips, especially with the NFL starting. Doing so gives you a better advantage in winning by making an insightful bet. 

Hence, to learn more, read on below and gain these tips:

What’s the National Football League?

The National Football League (NFL) is a professional American National Football league founded in Ohio during the 1920s. The NFL is divided equally into two conferences: the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC). Likewise, each conference comprises 16 teams, and these teams are divided into four in each division (North, South, East, and West).

While the AFC and NFC don’t officially speak for opposing geographical areas, each conference has the same regional divisions of the North, South, East, and West.

Due to this, every team will play against another team of their division twice. Likewise, games become a real thrill as the top six teams from both AFC and NFC compete annually to determine the NFL conference division winner. Ultimately, the conference season winner will meet and compete with each other in its famous championship game, the Super Bowl.

American Football Conference (AFC)

The American Football Conference (AFC) was formerly known as the American Football League. It was a conference merged alongside the NFC during the 1970s into the football league we know today. Before the 1970 merger, the two conferences were direct competitors for years. However, it stands as a unified Football League today.

The AFC currently holds 21 Super Bowl Championships, with the New England Patriots reigning with ten titles. And since it’s composed of 16 teams, there are multiple teams to understand and identify yourself with.

For the North, you’d see the Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, and Pittsburgh Steelers. For the East, the Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, and New York Jets. For the West, the Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, and San Diego Chargers. Finally, the South has the Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Tennessee Titans.

National Football Conference (NFC)

Before the 1970 merger, the National Football Conference (NFC) was known as the National Football League. Moreover, this conference has 24 Super Bowl Championships, with its reigning team being the Dallas Cowboys with eight titles. Like the AFC, the NFC comprises 16 teams divided into four divisions. 

The North Division has the Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, and Minnesota Vikings, while the East has the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, and Washington Redskins. Likewise, the West has the Arizona Cardinals, Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers, and Seattle Seahawks. Finally, the South has the Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Super Bowl Championships

The Super Bowl is the NFL’s official championship game, played annually between the two teams left standing from each conference. It is the nation’s most prominent sports event of the year, perhaps even evolving into an unofficial holiday, complete with viewing parties, extensive media buildup, and a festival-like atmosphere.

In addition, this game is played either in January or February and is held in different cities yearly. The 2021-2022 championship game was held at Inglewood, California, where the NFC’s Los Angeles Rams reigned against the Cincinnati Bengals with a score of 23-20. 

NFL Betting Tips To Remember

If you’re planning to test your luck and wager on the NFL, here are tips that could help you:

Live Betting Offers A Different Thrill

For an extra pack of excitement, live betting is something you must do! Live betting allows you to add more stakes to every game you bet, regardless of the score or football implications. Likewise, live betting isn’t limited to straight bets, which means you can combine all of your live odds into parlays to get that extra bite of excitement and a more significant payout!

In addition, live betting includes placing bets on the spread, money line, from kickoff through the final minutes, and over/under the total. It also needs you to familiarize yourself with online or mobile sports betting. 

Track Your Bets

As much as it’s essential to place your bets, it’s also equally important to track your results. How else are you going to reap your rewards if you don’t? Here, you can create a concise table that lists where your strengths and weaknesses lie when placing your bets. By doing so, you already know where to place your expectations. 

Likewise, documenting your bets will tell you where your strengths lie as a bettor. This will tell you what betting types you’re excellent at and what betting types you have trouble with. It’s also wise to track the amount you’re betting as well. Doing so will help you keep track of your financial gains and losses. It could even help you maintain a financial boundary between how much you can bet.

Final Thoughts

With this guide, you’ll have a complete breakdown of everything there is to know about betting during this season’s NFL conference. Knowing the 32 teams, their history, the Super Bowl championships, and even a few betting tips, you already have enough knowledge to make an insightful rather than a spontaneous bet. So, get your betting odds on, enjoy the game, and earn your betting payout!
