  • Which Football leagues and events do you cover picks for?

    You can find free NFL expert picks here from our knowledgeable tipsters with these football predictions for today. We cover competitions based in North America. The NFL Picks being the most popular. These will start from pre-season and run all of the way through to Super Bowl LVI which is being held at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California on the 13th of February 2022.

    We also cover the college leagues. Meaning we NCAA predictions and have recently added the AAF to the list of competitions added. The Alliance of American Football is better known as the AAF. It takes place after the NFL season has finished. As a result, you can get Football picks outside of the NFL season! Also, we cover the Canadian Football League (CFL). This gives fans of the league a chance to see who our tipsters are predicting in the CFL.

    If you have any questions or would like to join in the discussions throughout the NFL season, then head over to the forum which has plenty of members sharing opinions over the course of the season. Alternatively, if you want to have a read of any of the blogs regarding this season in the NFL then our bloggers have you covered with weekly blogs.

    Who is predicted to win the 2022 Super Bowl? To see which team the NFL handicappers are predicting to win the super bowl, head over to the dedicated Super Bowl LVI betting picks page.

  • Best NFL Betting Picks

    For all of the predictions on this page, whether it be NFL picks, NCAA predictions, CFL picks or AAF betting picks, they will all cover a total of nine different markets which will cover lines, player props and team props.

    Football Lines

    Money Line: This is a straight win pick, backing either the home team or the away team to win. The majority of sports betting sites will include overtime to decide a winner.

    Points Spread: One team is given a head start, the other given points to make up.

    For example, the home team is set at -5.5, this means they have to win by 6+ points for the wager to be successful. If a team is set at +5.5, it means they can afford to lose by up to 5 points and still be successful.

    Game Total: This is how many points will be scored in the game. So if the line is set at 36, for 'Over' to be successful there have to be 37+ points or no more than 35 for 'Under' to be successful. If it finishes with exactly 36 points then all wagers are pushed.

    Player Props

    First Touchdown Scorer: This will be the player being tipped to score the first touchdown of the game, the coin toss can be vital for this market with deciding which teams gets control of the ball first because the players from that team obviously get the first attempt at a touchdown.

    Anytime Touchdown Scorer: The good factor for this wager is it could be a winner in the first minute whilst at the same time the wager will remain alive until the final whistle, to be successful, the chosen player must score a TD at any point during the game.

    Team Props

    Double Result: Which side will be leading at half-time and then which side will be leading at full-time? That is what this market offers, if you fancy a side to comfortably win a match but the money line is short then this market can offer some value if you think that team will be leading throughout the game.

    Team Points 2-Way (Home & Away): This is similar to the 'Game Total' market but instead of wagering on under or over the total points in the game, you are wager under or over the set lines for the home or away sides.

    Winning Margin: These are where you backing either team to win along with the margin of their victory, for example, if the Saints are playing the Chargers and you think the Saints will win but not by a touchdown or more then the selection would be 'Saints by 1-6 Points', the options are available for both teams with winning brackets coming in increments of six points, ie 1-6, 7-14, 13-18 and so on.

    Each event set to take place is listed above with the best wager highlighted. This is the outcome that has received the most picks from our tipsters.

    You can see the number of NFL tipsters who are supporting the outcome, compared to the total number of picks on the market. This gives you the percentage of NFL picks supporting the outcome. This percentage along with the current odds are used together to generate a 'Value Rating'. Displayed as a five-star rating, this is a guide to how much value there is for the pick.

    Whatever you decide to wager on, you can pick up some great free bets if you want to try out some new legal sportsbooks. We have particularly good lists of NJ sportsbook promos and Michigan sportsbook promos.

  • Who are the best NFL Tipsters?

    Head over to the best football tipsters page to see which of our tipsters are performing well. You can view three sections on here, see how is having a current profitable month.

Additionally, you can sort by the number of profitable months to find consistent tipsters.

  • How often do NFL favourites win?

    A question that is regularly asked is How often do NFL favourites win? so here are some statistics to help you find the answer to that question.

    From the beginning of the 2014-15 season up until the end of the 2020-21 season, the win percentage of favourites ranged from as little as 63% to as high as 70%, the 2017-18 season is the highest win percentage of 70% and the 2015-16 season having the worst record of 63% and during that 2017-18 season, home favourites had a 72% win rate.

    The following table shows the favourite and underdog statistics, only games with an outcome are included and only games when there was a favourite are included:

    Season Games Fav Fav % Dog Dog %
    2014-15 263 176 67% 87 33%
    2015-16 264 165 63% 99 38%
    2016-17 264 173 66% 91 34%
    2017-18 264 185 70% 79 30%
    2018-19 260 170 65% 90 35%
    2019-20 265 172 65% 93 35%
    2020-21 268 176 66% 92 34%

    Top Five Performing Favourites

    For games between the 2014-15 and 2020-21 seasons, these are the top five performing teams when they are favourites to win:

    • Green Bay Packers (63-82 77% - 82% Home Field)
    • Kansas City Chiefs (66-88 75% - 75% Home Field)
    • New England Patriots (81-109 74% - 82% Home Field)
    • Seattle Seahawks (63-85 74% - 75% Home Field)
    • Houston Texans (37-50 74% - 89% on the Road)

    There are two teams who fall under the 50% win rate mark when favourites, St Louis Rams only have a 36% win rate (4-11) and Jacksonville Jaguars have a 48% win rate (16-33) so have not been the most reliable teams to wager on when favourites.

    Is it better to bet on the underdog? In terms of 'Giant Killers', there are only two teams who have played over twenty-five games as the underdogs between the seasons that we are looking at and have gone on to win over 50% of those games as the dogs. The Kansas City Chiefs played 28 games and won 15 of those, that is a win rate of 54% as the underdogs whilst the Pittsburgh Penguins have won 19 from 35 games, a win rate of 54%, two very good figures against the favourites so it is worth watching out for either of those two being picked by our expert NFL tipsters when they are the underdogs.

Experts are OLBG tipsters with high strike rates, current month or 6 month profitability for a particular sport
