General NFL Betting Advice
Before we get into the main NFL betting tips for the upcoming campaign, there are some general betting guidelines you can follow to maximize your NFL gambling experience. Firstly, learn what the betting markets mean, so you fully understand your bet. It is surprising how many people will bet on an NFL market without fully understanding how the market works. Secondly, when betting on individual games, check the form of both teams, their head-to-head record, current injuries, and their motivation to win the game. Thirdly, use a sportsbook that has cashout when betting on NFL games because you could make a profit cashing out early or save yourself from a bigger loss by preventing the bet from running until the end of the game. Finally, do not restrict yourself to just one online sportsbook because you can compare odds and use the sportsbook that offers the best value plus take advantage of multiple promotions across the various online betting platforms.
Super Bowl Winner Tips
We begin our tips for NFL betting in the 2023/24 season with a look at the teams who could win Super Bowl LVIII. Cincinnati Bengals have never won the Super Bowl, but they do have recent history of reaching the Super Bowl game, losing to Los Angeles Rams in 2022. Cincinnati Bengals have been to each of the last two AFC Championship games and there is a strong expectation that they will do the same this coming season. In terms of the roster, they have Ja’Maar Chase and Tee Higgins as two-star wide receivers and a strong defense coached by defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo. Joe Burrow is only 26 years old but is already being tipped to become of the great quarterbacks. Everything seems to be in place for Cincinnati Bengals to make history in the 2023/24 NFL season and win their first Super Bowl.
The favorites with the sportsbooks are the defending champions, Kansas City Chiefs, with the Philadelphia Eagles, and Buffalo Bills also featuring high in the odds to win the Super Bowl. Kansas City Chiefs have won two of the last four Super Bowl games, but many onlookers believe Buffalo Bills to be better placed to go all the way from the early favorites.
Regular Season Wins
Regular season wins are an exciting NFL betting market and involves over/under odds. The sportsbook will give each team and total number of games and you must predict if they will win over or under that number of games. The San Francisco 49ers are a good team to back when it comes to regular season wins and they will be playing in what looks like being a weak NFC West division this season. Switching to the NFC South and it was the weakest division last season and that could prove to be the case again in 2023/24. The New Orleans Saints could comfortably be the best team in NFC South this season and that makes them a tempting bet in the regular season wins market. You can also bet on which team will finish with the best overall regular season record and both the San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints offer good value.
Most Valuable Player
Patrick Mahomes won the NFL MVP award for the second time last season and is going to be the favorite with the sportsbooks to win it for a third time in the 2023/24 NFL season. For those wanting to back a potential outsider in the MVP betting, Aaron Rodgers is an interesting pick. Rodgers will be relying on protection from his offensive line but if he gets it, he could be the man to take the New York Jets all the way this season. Rodgers suffered an injury to his hand but should be back to 100% fitness for this season and will be ready to prove the doubters wrong. If you really want to bet on big odds, Jordan Love of the Green Bay Packers is worth considering. Love has looked excellent in preseason games and if he can take that form into the regular season, a bet on the quarterback as MVP could provide handsome reward.
