Betting NFL Futures
The NFL futures odds are made up of bets such as who will win the Super Bowl, the Conference and Divisional winners as well as how many games a particular team will win through out the season. These odds will vary between the Leading Online Sportsbooks and it is worthwhile doing your line shopping to get the best odds available. The odds for these markets move around from week to week as each team's chances of prevailing become clearer as the season unfolds. Major injury news will also change prices dramatically and of course the sportsbooks will make changes to try to balance the action they are holding.
