NFL Odds: The Odds Manager Guide to the 2020-21 Season

While American Football is arguably the most popular sport in the USA, it also has a massive fanbase worldwide, with the season-ending Super Bowl having transcended the sport and become a genuine cultural phenomenon. 

And with more ways to bet on it than there is padding on your average NFL player, there are plenty of opportunities to boost your bankroll.

Here at Odds Manager, we’ve got some big American Football fans, and that means we’ll always be there with the latest NFL news, views, and NFL betting odds.


Here are all the latest odds for the upcoming matches in the NFL.

What to Watch in 2020

With games each and every week until the end of 2020, NFL fans will have something other than Netflix to watch on a Sunday evening!

Super Bowl champs the Kansas City Chiefs are the star attraction once again, with quarterback Patrick Mahomes spraying passes around like champagne at a Marbella pool party.

But in the Baltimore Ravens, they have a genuine rival with a star quarterback of their own in Lamar Jackson, and he’s trickier than Dynamo.

Over in Florida, quarterback Tom Brady is looking to prove that even at 43 he can add to his six Super Bowl titles, after his move to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

And on the other side of the country, the San Francisco 49ers will be hoping to make an immediate return to the grandest stage of them all, after losing last year’s Super Bowl.

So while the outside temperature may be dropping, you can guarantee the NFL will be bringing the heat in the months ahead.

NFL Odds – What to Bet on

When it comes to betting on the NFL, there’s more choice than a Craft Beer Festival. And that’s thanks to there being at least 13 games every week, each with an enormous range of markets.

But what really singles out the NFL from a betting perspective is the statistics that are available to punters every week, giving you the edge in your battle with the bookies. 

Super Bowl Betting

The NFL season only runs from September to February, so if you’re backing the Super Bowl winner before the campaign starts then you don’t have long to wait to learn your fate!

And with the best prices on offer before the season starts, it pays to act early.

Handicap Betting

Let’s say you don’t just fancy a team to win, but to win comfortably.

So instead of backing them straight up at a very low price, you can back them to win by more than a certain amount of points, for a price that is generally even money or slightly lower.

It works the other way too in that you can bet on a certain team not to lose by more than a certain amount of points, which effectively gives you two ways to make money, either if they win, or lose narrowly.

Points Totals

When it comes to NFL clashes, sometimes you might not be confident of who the winner will be, but you’re convinced it’s going to be a high or low scoring game.

So you can back under or over a certain total and watch the touchdowns fly in with either joy or anger!

Acca 

Among all the handicaps and points totals, let’s not forget the humble Acca, which is still a great way to make some cash, betting on the NFL.

You can mix and match handicaps and points totals for big-priced Acca’s.

But don’t forget that in any given week there are usually at least five or six clear favourites at low prices, just waiting to be added together, maybe with a cheeky Acca boost too!
