The 2015 NFL regular season begins on Thursday, September 10th as the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots host the Pittsburgh Steelers on NBC television. The regular season concludes with Week 17 action on Sunday, January 3rd. The NFL playoffs begin the following week with Wild Card action and everything culminates with Super Bowl 50 on Sunday, February 7th, 2016 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, home of the San Francisco 49ers.
Super Bowl Odds
Super Bowl 50 takes place on Sunday, February 7th at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. The game will decide the champion for the 2015 regular season. Here is a look at the game, Super Bowl odds and Super Bowl betting. The game will begin at approximately 6:25 pm Eastern Time and be televised by CBS. It will be the first Super Bowl held in the San Francisco are since Super Bowl XIX in 1985. Because it is the 50th Super Bowl, it is not being referred to as Super Bowl L but instead Super Bowl 50 for marketing purposes.
How to Bet on NFL
There are a multitude of choices when it comes to betting on the NFL at BetDSI Sportsbook. You can bet on the side or the total and lay the traditional 11/10 or you can choose to bet the money line where there is no pointspread involved. With side betting you are either laying points or taking points and trying to cover the spread. With the total you are betting whether the amount of points scored will go over or under the total posted at the sportsbook. With the money line you don’t have to worry about the pointspread at all as you just need your team to win. Not to be left out of NFL betting is parlays and teasers where you are putting multiple teams on one ticket hoping that they all win and cover the spread to get a big payout at the online sportsbook.
NFL Quarter Lines
You can choose to bet on each of the four quarters of an NFL game. This is an additional option in NFL betting at the sports book. When you bet on quarters it is just like betting on the full game as you have the side and total and sometimes the money line. The only difference is that your bet is only for one of the four quarters and not for the entire game.
You can bet on teams to win the Super Bowl, their respective conferences and their divisions in NFL futures. The odds to win the Super Bowl will be up throughout the year at BetDSI sportsbook while odds to win the division are available before the season begins. Also available in NFL futures before the season starts are team win totals. This is where you bet over or under the amount of games you think a team will win during the regular season.
NFL Props / Proposition Bets
A great option that is available at the sportsbook on some of the marquee television games including Sunday Night and Monday Night Football are proposition bets (props). These bets are extremely popular in the Super Bowl as people bet on everything from the opening coin toss to who will score the first touchdown. Some of the common props are on which team will score first, what the first score of the game will be (touchdown, field goal or safety) player vs. player matchups and team scoring totals. Betting an NFL prop is just like betting the money line or the total where you are choosing one side or the other and laying money instead of points.
