Making NFL picks against the spread can be one of the easiest wagers for football bettors to understand. There's only one thing to focus on when determine whether a wager was a winning one: The final score. When selecting your NFL picks against the spread, keep an eye on these aspects of the game.
The Point spread. The favorite is listed with a "minus" sign and a number of points, called the point spread. The point spread can be a whole number (minus-7) or can include half points (minus-7.5). When making the wager on the favorite, that team must win and win by more than the number of points in the point spread to give the bettor a winning wager. When wagering on the underdog, the underdog must either win the game outright or it must lose the game by fewer points than are in the point spread to give the bettor a winning wager. If the final score exactly matches the point spread with the favored team winning, it's called a push, and the bettor does not win or lose, with the wager refunded. (On occasion, a point spread is listed as "pick 'em". In this case, there is no favorite or underdog as the sports book deems the two NFL opponents as even, and the bettor only has to pick the winner outright.
Line Movement. In the days leading up to the NFL game, you can expect the point spread to "move" a little bit, as bettors make wagers. If more money is being wagered on the favorite, for example, the sports book may increase the point spread for the favorite, thereby encouraging more bettors to wager on the underdog. In NFL games, a movement to the point spread often occurs as injury news is released during the week. Keep an eye on the movement of the point spread as the NFL game time approaches to make the most informed wager.
Home/Away. First, the home team generally receives a benefit of a few points in an NFL point spread. If two teams would be considered evenly matched on a neutral field, one NFL team probably would receive a minus-3 point spread at home.
Second, you can look at past results to help make a pick against the spread. For example, teams from the same NFL division play each other twice per season. You can use results from the first game to help you make a pick in the second game.
Third, make sure you have all of the latest information regarding an NFL game. Check on weather situations, the latest injury news, personnel matchups, and coaching matchups. Look at historical statistics and results to help you make sense of the matchups. With so many print news organizations, TV stations, radio stations, and Web sites devoted to the NFL, you should have no problem finding the information you need to make well-informed NFL picks ats.
