The NFL football betting season is back and that’s a huge deal for fans of the hard-hitting sport. The NFL is the pinnacle of North American sports and it continues to deliver highlight-reel moments, controversy and unabated fandom.
Competitive betting markets and lines are here for those who want to do a little more than just cheer their favorite team on. From picking a long-term selection on the Super Bowl winner to breaking down the latest NFL spreads for the current round of fixtures, 888sport has all the American Football betting coverage you need.
The new season of the NFL swings into action in the early autumn of 2023. Compared to other major sports, an NFL season is fairly short. Teams only play 17 regular season fixtures each as they try and lock down a place in the Playoffs.
The NFL Playoffs is where the magic of the season comes alive and follows on from the regular season. It’s when the campaign shifts over to a knockout format, leaving the qualified teams with no second chances in their bid to win the Super Bowl.
The Kansas City Chiefs are the reigning champions heading into the 2023/24 season. After defeating the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2023 Super Bowl, they are the team that everyone else has to beat.
The Chiefs head into the new season as the favourites to win Super Bowl LVIII in NFL odds. The Philadelphia Eagles, San Francisco 49ers, Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals are among the leading challengers for the title.
Picking the winner of the Super Bowl in American Football betting is the most popular market at 888sport. But there is plenty more variety when it comes to betting on NFL odds like NFL futures and more. Long-term picks on Division and Conference winners can be made.
There are the NFC Championship and AFC Championship winner markets, along with the possibility of making a pick on each of the six Divisional winners for the season. There are also great NFL betting player markets too like Regular Season MVP and Coach of the Year.

NFL spreads at 888sport are hugely popular. The points spread is designed to level out the difference in strength between two teams. A Kansas City Chiefs -5.5 Spread for example means that they would have to win the fixture by at least six points to cover that spread. A +5.5 bet on the New England Patriots would see the wager win as long as the Pats didn’t lose by six points or more.
The Moneyline in NFL odds is a common market predicting the winner of a match. It’s straightforward when looking at Decimal or Fractional odds. In American odds, favourites have negative odds (e.g., -150), meaning you'd have to bet that amount to win $100. Underdogs have positive odds (e.g., +200), meaning a $100 bet would win you $200 if they win.
Another popular NFL betting market at 888sport is the Total Points. This is an Over/Under selection on the total points that you think are going to be scored in a match, for instance Over/Under 45.5 points.
NFL prop bets remain a popular area of NFL odds. Proposition bets largely focus on the performances of individuals, such as the total yards a quarterback will throw or how many running yards a player will tally. Prop bets can add an extra layer of excitement to NFL odds and appear a lot in Super Bowl betting.
