Patriots Betting Odds
When it comes to NFL betting, no matter what you are looking to bet on, odds are you can find it at various Massachusetts sportsbooks. For single-game wagers, the most common bets include moneylines, point spreads, and totals (over/under). But it doesn’t end there. Sportsbooks also have other NFL betting markets that include player props, team props, and both player and team futures.
Common NFL player props for individual games include a QB throwing over or under his listed total for passing yards. For example, consider a game in which Mac Jones’ passing yards total is listed at 210.5. If you bet on the over, you would need Jones to throw for at least 211 yards to win your bet. If you bet on the under, you would need Jones to stay under 210.5 passing yards to win. Other types of player props include rushing yards, receptions, total rushes, and touchdowns. At some sportsbooks, you also may find season-long player total bets that take into account the full season or (potentially) some happenings in the offseason. These are some season-long player prop bets:
- NFL rushing leader and NFL passing leader
- Total passing yards thrown by a specific quarterback (Over/Under)
- Total rushing yards for a specific running back (Over/Under)
- Number of interceptions thrown for a specific quarterback (Over/Under)
- Number of receiving touchdowns for a specific receiver (Over/Under)
- First overall selection in the NFL Draft
Individual bets are great, but if you are looking for more variety, you may also find bets on performances and accomplishments for specific teams as a whole. These are known as NFL team futures bets:
- Over/Under total wins for the season
- AFC Champions
- NFC Champions
- Division Champions
- To make the playoffs (Yes/No)
Bettors can also bet on specific player awards. Here are some potential futures bets on individual players than can be found at Massachusetts sportsbooks:
- NFL Most Valuable Player
- NFL Comeback Player of the Year
- Offensive Rookie of the Year
- Defensive Rookie of the Year
