The NFL is arguably the most popular sports league across all sports which are played in the United States of America, and the league is a professional American football league which is played by a total of 32 teams across the Unites States. It will be a huge error to think that the NFL is only popular in the United States, but the popularity of the league goes beyond the United States boarders as millions of fans tune in every week to watch the games live.
Ever since the Supreme Court overturned a federal law that forbade states from authorizing legalized betting on college and professional sports in 2018, the NFL has embraced legalized sports betting and several punters in the United States are now betting on the popular sport legally. This article seeks to list some of the most popular game props in the NFL.
What are NFL Game Props?
A prop or proposition bet is a bet made regarding the occurrence or non-occurrence during a game, in most cases, the prop does not affect the outcome of an event in any way. There are two types of NFL props namely Player props and Game props. It is important to note that game props and player props mostly have the same metrics and the major difference being that team props refers to the entire team while player props refer to the player. A good example of Game prop bets is ‘Division Winners’ whereby a punter will place a bet on who would be the winner of the division, as you can see, this has no bearing whatsoever on any game’s outcome.
