  • BookMaker.eu The first week of NFL preseason action is in the books giving bettors a glimpse into what the teams have. Week 2 could offer up a different perspective, though, since this is the time teams would trot out starters for their most extended action. A change in the preseason schedule ahead of last season essentially made this set of games what coaches often refer to... 

  • BookMaker.eu The return of football is a glorious time for those who enjoy wagering on sports. The most popular game on the planet is back this week with the 2022 preseason getting started with a full slate of games. Now, here’s a tip when betting on preseason games: Take everything you know about wagering on the NFL regular season and throw it out the window. That’s because the rules are completely different, the rosters are full of unknowns and coaches are looking to evaluate personnel. In other words, there isn’t much of an emphasis on winning. And that’s why there are some vanilla lines, especially when it comes to the first week. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu At the onset of future market gambling, four teams stand apart as favorites for a dubious distinction. The Atlanta Falcons, Houston Texans, Chicago Bears, and Seattle Seahawks are the top picks of the gambling public to score the fewest points in the NFL this season. While those picks are obvious, they are also well founded. All four teams are facing the prospects of either a poor quarterback or the lack of a quality supporting cast. With the possible exception of the Bears, none of these teams ... 

  • BookMaker.eu To begin with, the Buffalo Bills are one of the most popular brands on the NFL future market. And a big reason why is that they have one of the best offenses in pro football. In fact, the Bills are expected to score the most points in the 2022 NFL season. And there are some understandable choices right behind the Bills. The Kansas City Chiefs are a natural choice with quarterback Patrick Mahomes and a strong high octane football track record. Meanwhile, Tom Brady is back with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and their strong supporting cast. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The wait is finally over. Specifically, on Thursday night, the NFL will open the preseason with a national prime time matchup. The Las Vegas Raiders will face the Jacksonville Jaguars. Despite the revolving door of substitutions with unknown players, fans don’t care. Nor do they worry about not knowing the players' names in the game. Instead, it’s all about the laundry. Two teams will be on a field playing football in NFL uniforms. TV ratings and betting handles will dwarf the regular season num... 

  • BookMaker.eu At the onset of the season, Matt Rhule is on the hottest seat in the NFL. At least according to the gambling public. Rhule is on top of the board to be the first coach fired in the 2022 season. Indeed, Rhule has not moved the needle in two years as the head coach of the Carolina Panthers. But other choices down the board could bring more potential value. And then there are other coaches am... 

  • BookMaker.eu The NFL Preseason is rapidly approaching, with the NFL Hall of Fame Game between the Las Vegas Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars set for Thursday, August 4. With that in mind, it's time to recalibrate with NFL preseason betting strategies.Unlike the teams inv... 

  • BookMaker.eu There is an age-old belief that NFL prop bets are like playing the lottery. Many believe there isn’t much science to prop betting that it’s a lot about random luck. Other players point out that there are so many props listed these days that you can find some in which a handicapping analysis is possible. Further, insiders will often confide that sportsbooks don’t put as much effort into their prop bet lists. Offsetting that is the fact that the house edge is usually higher for prop bets compared ... 

  • BookMaker.eu In the world of NFL gambling, trends are one of the most common go-to sources of information for determining who to bet on. This trait is especially the case for new or casual bettors. Trends give handicappers a simple, digestible breakdown of how both teams have been performing recently. By comparing both teams' head-to-head trends and looking for situations where one team's trend lines up well aga... 

  • BookMaker.eu At the beginning of each season is the importance of a remedial course on NFL key numbers. Many handicappers overdue the research and drill down too far on teams and transactions. But NFL key numbers go a long way to simplifying the law of gravity for pro football betting.When paying attention to discourse in the betting community, you’ll often hear or see people discussing line moves. But, some lin... 

  • BookMaker.eu Did you know that there is NFL live betting on every NFL game during the season? NFL betting is extremely popular and live NFL betting is just the next step in the evolution. There are 16 NFL games each week throughout the season and those games are spread out with action on Thursday, Sunday and Monday nights. NFL live betting does have a few nuances to keep in mind, but overall, the betti... 

  • BookMaker.eu NFL future bets at BookMaker are very popular and they can be very profitable. Picking the right team to win the Super Bowl is great, but there is so much more to betting NFL futures at the sportsbook. You will see the normal Super Bowl future odds, such as betting on a team to win the Super Bowl, conference championship and division. There is so much more to NFL futures than just tho... 

  • BookMaker.eu The most common way to bet on sports in an online sportsbook is to bet on the Pointspread. The pointspread is set by online sportsbook odds or linemakers in the effort to even out the wagering action for both sides. For example, if the Kansas City Chiefs play the Jacksonville Jaguars, the overwhelming majority of gamblers would bet the Chiefs to win the game. But with the correct pointspread set by the linemaker, the public will bet both sides equally. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu At first glance, betting on Teasers looks easy yet unusual but intriguing and fun. But a deeper dive reveals that teasers offer a land of opportunity for gamblers that want an extra “cushion” against the pointspread. Many more sophisticated gamblers have developed attractive strategies and betting systems to make the most of teasers. For the good gambler, teaser bets can be the difference in the margin between victory and defeat. The problem is that a teaser can become the ultimate sucker bet for many unsuspecting gamblers. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu NFL Parlay betting is when you choose multiple games, totals, or props and combine them to create a higher payout for the wager. You would need to get each bet correct to win. Once considered fun wagers or even ‘sucker bets,’ parlay betting is now considered a smarter way to bet on the favorite in some cases. Parlay betting is a form of football wagering where you pick two or more games on the same ticket and get a better payout. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu For the first time since 2009, the Seattle Seahawks may win fewer than seven games in a season. This franchise has never finished worse than 7-10 under Pete Carroll, but the Seahawks mashed the reset button this offseason by trading franchise quarterback Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos. Seattle received quite a haul for Wilson, getting back Drew Lock, Noah Fant, Shelby Har... 

  • BookMaker.eu It’s now July, and the San Francisco 49ers have yet to make a permanent decision on their quarterback. Jimmy Garoppolo is listed as the starter, but he has been rumored to be on the trading block for several months now. Meanwhile, Trey Lance is still incredibly raw and will need time to grow, but the 49ers took him with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. All Sa... 

  • BookMaker.eu The defending Super Bowl champions aren’t getting the full respect they deserve after last year’s triumph. The Los Angeles Rams have the third-best odds to win the NFC after Tampa Bay and Green Bay even though they are bringing back virtually all of their stars from last year’s Lombardi Trophy winning lineup. Future Hall of Fame defenders Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey are back to pace the defense, while Matt Stafford still has NFL Offensive Player of the Year Cooper Kupp to target in the passing game. They also have one of the game’s best young head coaches in Sean McVay, so this team should contend once more in 2022. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Kliff Kingsbury is in a weird position. Although the Arizona Cardinals have improved by multiple wins in each of his first three seasons at the helm, he is on something of a hotseat entering the 2022 season. The Cardinals won three games the year before he was hired, and they went 5-10-1 in 2019, 8-8 in 2020, and 11-6 in 2021, so you would think his job is safe for the forese... 

  • BookMaker.eu Sean Payton has stepped away from the New Orleans Saints as the most successful coach in the history of the franchise. Payton went 152-89 during his 16 seasons in charge of New Orleans, as Payton and Drew Brees helped make the Saints a perennial contender. The coach was responsible for 9 of New Orleans’ 10 postseason wins, and he is one of two coaches in Saints’ history to finish with a record over .500. Dennis Allen has awfully large shoes to fill in the Big Easy, but the good news is that the cupboard isn’t bare. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu David Tepper bought the Carolina Panthers in 2018. Tepper promised that he would do his best to bring a Super Bowl to Charlotte, and he made a huge splash when he hired Matt Rhule from Baylor and signed Rhule to a seven-year contract worth $62 million in January 2020. Unfortunately, it looks like Rhule might not be cut out for the job as Carolina has now won just five games i... 

  • BookMaker.eu When Tom Brady announced his retirement shortly before the Super Bowl in February, it looked like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ window had closed. Brady made the Buccaneers immediate contenders, as the franchise won the Super Bowl in his first season after a 12-year postseason drought. Tampa Bay was even better in the regular season last year before falling to the Los Angel... 

  • BookMaker.eu The oddsmakers have the Atlanta Falcons pegged to be the worst team in the NFC. Atlanta traded away long-time starting quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason as the franchise looks to rebuild, and the Falcons now have the worst quarterback situation in the NFL. Marcus Mariota, Feleipe Franks, and rookie Desmond Ridder are the three signal callers that will be vying for snaps in thi... 

  • BookMaker.eu Mike Zimmer was fired after eight years in charge of the Minnesota Vikings at the end of the 2021 season. Zimmer had a 72-56-1 record with the Vikes and never finished worse than 7-9, but this team only made the postseason three times under his watch. They hadn’t finished better than 10-6 in any of the past four seasons, so the front office made the move to part ways with Zim... 

  • BookMaker.eu No team has been as bad as the Detroit Lions over the last three decades. Detroit has claimed just one division title since 1991, and the Lions have made just eight playoff appearances over the last 30 years. They lost in the Wild Card Round for every one of those postseason trips, and they haven’t won a playoff game since Barry Sanders was in his third season in the league. Detroit ...
