There's college football, and professional football, and the professional players and teams compete in the National Football League, or the NFL for short.

Americans also like to gamble, but the US government is not so keen on them to do so, and sports betting in the US is heavily restricted and legislated. That does not stop the rest of the world enjoying a spot of NFL betting though, and we're here at {sports betting} to guide you to the best online sports books where you can enjoy a spot of NFL betting.

NFL – a little bit of history

The NFL came into being in 1920 as the American Professional Football Association, before renaming itself in 1922 as the National Football League. Fourteen teams were involved, and the title was won by the Akron Pros, who won eight and tied three of their eleven games.

The NFL remained the top professional American Football league in the US, until the creation of the rival American Football League in 1960. In 1966 the two leagues agreed to merge, and they paved the way for the creation of the 'Super Bowl' – an annual playoff match between the winners of the American and National leagues.

The Super Bowl is the most-watched annual sporting event in the USA. The 2015 Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks was watched by over 114 million US viewers. The first Super Bowl was won by the Green Bay Packers.

The record for Super Bowl wins is six, achieved by the Pittsburgh Steelers, who also hold the joint record with three other teams for the most Super Bowl appearances. Both the Minnesota Vikings and the Buffalo Bills have appeared in four Super Bowls and have lost all four. Of all twenty-four current NFL teams, only the Cleveland Browns (founded in 1946), the Detroit Lions (1930), the Jacksonville Jaguars (1993) and the Houston Texans (2002) have yet to appear in a Super Bowl.

The NFL – how to bet

The NFL season usually begins in the second week in September each year. The regular season runs for seventeen weeks until the end of December, and then the playoffs begin in the second week in January, with the Super Bowl taking place within the first two weeks of February.

Some sites allow straight betting on NFL games, and others use American-style lines betting. This is where the odds for each game are fixed at just over evens, and one of the teams is given a points handicap in order to even up the sides as being competitively equal.

You can also place wagers on season-long wagers too, such as which team will win the Super Bowl, which team will win each conference (American and National), and which team will win their respective divisions, of which there are eight in total across the entire NFL.

If you like your gridiron action, and you like to make it more interesting by placing money on the outcome of matches, then here at latestbettingsites.co.uk we'll keep you abreast of all the latest NFL betting news.
