The 2021 NFL season is now in the books but we will be back to continue our battle with the online bookmakers from September onwards. We may even throw a few Draft picks in for your enjoyment in the meantime (pun intended).
As ever, good luck with your NFL bets!
Super Bowl LVI Predictions and Best Bets
Free NFL Predictions
We do not charge you anything for our predictions. Beating the books is tough enough without paying for the advice as well.
We try to post all of our predictions at least 24 hours before kickoff, unless the odds change significantly and a value proposition hits us right in the mouth.
Most of our individual game predictions are against the spread. That means we’ll either pick the favorite to overcome a specific handicap (it might be 7 points) or the underdog to capitalize on one.
Either way we want our pick to cover the spread to land a winning prediction for you.
The spread can change during an NFL week, for example if a team’s quarterback goes down in practice. We’ll monitor the spreads throughout the week and point out anything we think gives you an opportunity to win.
Money line Picks
If you bet the money line, you’re picking a team just to win. Nothing else, no spread, no exotic subplot. You just need the W.

We will advise you to take a money line if we think there is value, but often the odds will just not be good enough. If you take a favorite which has say a seven-point edge and you bet against the spread, your odds will likely be around -110 (bet $110 to win $100).
Now if you want to back that team straight up on the money line the odds will be prohibitive – more like -300 (bet $300 to win $100).
So there’s a reason why most times we’ll tell you to bet against the spread. The odds will be way way better.
Props are terrific fun and are taking the U.S. by storm. They are bets which can be about anything but the final result of the game. It could be a player to score a touchdown either first or anytime, or whether a QB will throw for 300 yards or more.
Online sportsbooks have a mind-bending number of props for the big national TV games, and that is good news for you. Whatever the game, there is likely something that can give you an interest deep into the fourth quarter.
Futures bets and predictions
This is where you bet ahead, and it could be months or years ahead.
We check out all the long-term betting opportunities for you on a regular basis, and if we see something that looks great value we’ll advise you to take it.
Some of the most popular futures markets include betting on the Super Bowl, the eight division races and also the NFL Draft.
We also provide regular updates on the race to become NFL MVP, plus Rookie Of The Year and Comeback Player Of The Year. Again, when there is value in the market we’ll provide predictions for you to review so you can bet if you like them.
Getting the best odds
Okay so this is really important and can earn you a little extra cash. It is worth shopping around to try to get the best odds whenever you can. You can sign up with multiple sportsbooks, so you can go with whichever has the best value.
Best NFL betting sites
There are a ton of options – and like we said, can you open accounts with as many as you want.
The great thing is they all have terrific signup offers, and you can accumulate thousands of dollars in free bets.
Here are just a few of the ones we like, and the current offers they have:
