NFL Online Prop Betting Tips

While most bookmakers will post near mirror lines on straight bets, the prop line prices can vary substantially. For the best prop betting odds, please refer to the online sportsbooks featured in our Top 5 Table. 

Famous NFL Proposition Bets

Betting lore has the origin of proposition wagering tracing back to Major League Baseball in the late 1800’s while the William Hill group is often credited with offering the first “legal” prop betting option. Back in the 1960’s, punter David Threlfal convinced the famous UK bookmaker that they should give him odds on a whether a man would walk on the moon before January 1, 1970. When Neil Armstrong took one small step for man; one giant leap for mankind, on July 20, 1969, Threlfal cashed in with outer space odds of 1000/1.

Perhaps the brightest prop market flash point was launched by Hollywood when bookmakers posted the “Who Shot JR” prop bet in 1980. It took a kitchen appliance to heat up NFL prop betting markets. For Super Bowl XX, William “Refrigerator” Perry, who was huge defensive tackle, opened with 75/1 odds that he would score a TD on offense. Janet Jackson’s Super Bowl 38 halftime show can be credited with inspiring the 20/1 odds on Beyonce having a “wardrobe malfunction” during the SB XLVII halftime extravaganza.

Tips on Betting NFL Player Props

Successfully navigating the basic NFL player props, such as Super Bowl MVP or the first player to score, plus the team props, as well as the sport cross-over and entertainment prop offerings, can be a hectic experience. Hundreds of NFL player props are offered throughout the season and the numbers ramp up considerably on Super Bowl Sunday. For that reason, our expert handicapping crew offers the following tips and advice.

1) Hone in on skill player prop bets

The NFL prop bet “Player to the score the longest TD” is a classic example here. Speedy wide receivers like Torrey Smith, who has QB Joe Flacco’s cannon of an arm tossing him the ball, can easily be researched.

2) Shop for the best wagering lines and prices

Many of the player prop offerings are standard across the board at online sportsbooks – except in line and price value. Getting the Ravens to score first at -110 is better than getting them with a -120 betting line.

3) Research the teams involved inside and out

Based on the Giants always electing to receive when they won the coin toss, and Patriots always deferring, our research team was 99% positive the G-Men would get the ball first in Super Bowl XLVI – and they did.

4) Find bold bookmakers who offer generous limits

Player prop betting offers normally come with some fairly strict and limited wagering caps. While some online sportsbook set prop limits as low as $50 per wager, the bolder books will often offer their standard maximums.

5) Know your cross-over sports like the NBA and NHL

Cross-over sport betting is becoming more popular everyday – especially during the Super Bowl. Players involved on these tickets are normally super stars and bettors need to know how they’re currently producing.
