NFL Playoff Bets On Your Favourite Team

Loyal allegiance to favorite teams has been around since the beginning of sports. Some fans are hardcore supporters who stick with their squad through thick and thin. Then there are the proverbial bandwagon jumpers who are on for the ride during good times but jump off if the road gets rocky. When it comes to NFL playoff bets on your favorite team – always put your heart on the shelf and wager based solely on facts.

Keep Your Heart Out Of The Gambling Arena

As a die-hard fan, you probably know everything about every player on your team. You’ve read the reports. You’ve watched the pressies. You know the trends. This puts you in an excellent position to clean up on prop bets because you will know what the sports book probably doesn’t. Learn more in the video below.

If we were given a nickel every time we saw a jersey wearing fan lining up to bet on their favorite squad, at the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas, we would have an abundance of nickels. While we understand team allegiance, yours truly has suffered through a bunch of Detroit Lions losing NFL seasons, that doesn’t mean handicappers should blindly bet on the teams they cheer for. Because it makes sense (and a lot of dollars) “just the facts Ma’am” should always be a sports betting mantra.

NFL Playoff Betting Tips

Team loyalty always comes into play and ours was tested during the 2017 NFL Wild Card Weekend. After stumbling and bumbling late in the season, we were faced with the dilemma of wagering on the Motor City Cats who were receiving eight points vs the Seahawks in Seattle. Looking into how the Lions were rolling, which was in a downhill direction, and based on their recent track record on road, we couldn’t find any logical reasons to back QB Matthew Stafford & Co. Although we would have enjoyed a Detroit victory, our research pointed to that having a snowball’s chance in Hawaii of happening. Going with our head, not our heart, we backed the Hawks and cashed in a winner.

Being a supporter of certain teams can also have some advantages. Since a small investment is all that’s required, for a possible big payday, one “homer” option we would never fault anyone on is early season NFL futures wagering. Atlanta fans can attest to that as the Falcons entered the NFL 2016 regular season flying well below the Super Bowl LI radar. In fact, the Dirty Birds were sporting a rich -7500 Championship line after opening with a 1-1 record. Tucked away, down in the Peach State, the Falcons don’t make national headlines all that often so that line was ripe for the picking by optimistic Black Bird fans who ended up with a nice guaranteed pay day on Super Bowl Sunday.

Super Bowl Era Online Sportsbooks and Social Media 

On January 15, 1967, the Bart Starr led Green Bay Packers crushed the Len Dawson led Kansas City Chiefs 35-10 in Super Bowl 1. Known as the AFL-NFL World Championship back then, the first ever NFL title game played out at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, in sunny Southern California. Except for betting with fellow football fans, bar-room bookies, or jetting to Las Vegas to place a wager at the recently opened Aladdin Hotel & Casino sportsbook, Super Bowl wagering paths were limited. Today, whether it’s online sportsbooks, William Hill is a solid NFL book, fantasy football websites, or the much less desirable Canadian Sports Lottery schemes; punters have a ton betting options.

Of the three, bettors are advised to stay well away from the Pro-Line options as making a single bet on the NFL title game is not allowed due to the stone-age wagering laws in Canada. Simple stated, being stuck in Canada on Super Bowl Sunday sucks – ‘nough said eh? On the bright side, Canucks have access to some of the best online betting brands on the planet. Top rated CSB sportsbooks, are always brimming with Super Bowl wagering options – including a heaping pile of prop offers.
