How to bet NFL Las Vegas Money Line Odds
If your team wins, you win!
A NFL money line wager means you’re simply picking a side. The betting term Against the Spread (ATS) is not necessary for these types of wagers since the spread is not a factor.
Similar to our Spread and 1st Half Odds, every matchup is listed in order of Rotation and those numbers are preceded by the Date and Time of the NFL game, every matchup is listed in order of Rotation and those numbers are preceded by the Date and Time of the NFL game.
The Rotation for NFL games typically lists them by scheduled starting time as there are normally no more than three games in a day. Home teams are listed at the bottom and will therefore be your even-numbered squad.
The numbers next to the teams are based on a scale where $100 is the key figure. Favorites are the teams with the minus (-) sign next to their figure, which represents what it would take to win yourself $100 with the favored group. The team in the Underdog role has the plus (+) symbol next to the amount you would be able to win by wagering $100.
How to read NFL Las Vegas Money Line Odds
In this example, the Cleveland Browns were listed as a 5.5-point favorite against the Tennessee Titans. Looking at this from a money-line standpoint, Cleveland is a -245 favorite to win the game straight-up, compared to Tennessee at +210 to win the contest.
Cleveland -245 (Bet $100 to win $40.80)
Tennessee +210 (Bet $100 to win $210)
That number is set by oddsmakers after the spread is established but changes throughout the week based on the amount of money coming in on bets.
In this contest, Tennessee actually upset Cleveland, 43-13 in easy fashion to cash at +210 Money Line Odds. If you bet $100 on Tennessee to win the game outright, you receive the $210 for the winning ticket, plus getting back the $100 you placed on the game for a $310 victory.
However, going for it all by taking underdogs on the Money Line instead of taking the points turns out to be a tough pill to swallow.
In the 2019 season opener, Philadelphia closed as a hefty 10-point home favorite against Washington. The Eagles were -500 on the Money Line, while Washington was a juicy +425 to pull the road upset.
Philadelphia -500 (Bet $500 to win $100, Betting $100 wins only $20)
Washington +425 (Bet $100 to win $425)
Washington actually led this game, 20-7 at halftime, but was outscored, 25-7 in the second half to lose to Philadelphia, 32-27. If you took the points with Washington, you were a winner. However, if you backed Washington on the Money Line, you walk away with nothing as it lost the game straight-up.
