NFL Picks Against the Spread
Against the spread (or ATS) is the most popular way to bet the NFL. Instead of picking a team to just win the game, Vegas Sportsbooks put up a “line.” For example, the Monday Night Football broadcast for Week #3 will feature the Cowboys and Giants. The Giants are favored by 3 points, and a bet on the Giants’ spread will in if the Giants win the game by more than 3 points. If you bet on Dallas at +3, the Cowboys can win or not lose by more than 3 points.
Spreads making betting on sports more difficult, but luckily VegasInsider and their expert handicappers are here to help. The free picks page is always available with a few ATS winners, but for the full selections of picks from all the experts, check out the buy picks page. VegasInsider employs 30 handicappers who were hand selected to provide the best picks in the business. Some of the handicappers are high volume (many picks daily) and some are low volume (very selective). Choose the best handicapper for your needs.
Moneyline NFL picks are also a popular bet when looking at the NFL. An NFL team that is -3 would be around -150 on the moneyline. A $100 wager would net $66.67. The VegasInsider experts will look for the best value on the board and help find some of the best underdogs available. Grabbing +130 on the moneyline would net $130 on the same $100 wager. A bet on the money line favorite avoids the sweat of covering the spread.
Taking the live underdog to win outright will often be a sweat, but it is worth it. The experts look for the best value and “mistakes” in the line to provide a great bet worth the risk.
Each game will have a line listed for the total number of points to be scored by both teams combined. Sometimes the experts will not like spread or moneyline on either side, but the total is where they see an advantage. An NFL total may be listed at Over/Under 46 with both priced at -110. Admittedly, overs are more fun to cheer for, but sometimes the experts find the under to be the best bet. Betting the total to go under would require good defense, some offensive miscues, dropped passes, and even some missed field goals. Our experts will hand select the best totals to bet on and translate that information to you.
VegasInsider understands the importance of transparency, and that is a big reason that the expert picks will come with analysis and the ever important “why.” It is easy to say who to bet on, but VegasInsider wants to provide the best information as to why you should follow the advice. The free picks provided by the experts will also help provide tips to find the best betting market and where you can find the best line.
