Betting on American Football and the Super Bowl
The popularity of American Football has continued to grow in recent years but has now hit fever pitch levels since former rugby league star Jarryd Hayne made the successful transfer to the NFL. It is the biggest sporting code in America by a long margin and the commercial dollars are astronomical.
The Super Bowl – the grand final of the NFL season – is more than just a game. It is a spectacle watched by hundreds of millions of fans around the globe and the Super Bowl half time show has featured some of the greatest musicians to ever live including Michael Jackson, Prince, Beyonce and U2.
Part of the allure is the wide range of markets available for NFL betting online. They include Money Line and Total Points, handicap, first touchdown scorer and special player props. Super Bowl betting odds and futures betting markets for Conference and Division winners are also available throughout the season.
Road to glory
As with most American sports the road to glory includes high school and college football. NCAA football is played by over 100 universities, colleges and military academies throughout America. It is spread into conferences with the Power 5 made up of the SEC, Big 10, Pac 12, Big 12 and ACC. College football odds are available for games throughout the season as it betting on the Heisman Trophy which is awarded to the best player in college football.
History in the making
Several players have transferred their success in college to the NFL. Names like Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, John Elway and Joe Montana will forever be etched in the history book of the NFL and all were able to add the title of Super Bowl MVP to their regular season MVP awards. Place your American Football bets and cheer on your favourite team.
