NFL Playoff Betting Tips


Don't Overvalue Top Seeds


The top seeds from each conference are usually overvalued once seedings are set. Many people assume that they must be the best teams as they’ve got the best records. They also assume that they’ll benefit from an extra week off. That’s not always the case.


Since 2000 only 8 top seeds have gone on to win the Super Bowl. And during that same timespan, 13 top-seeded teams lost in the Divisional Round, including both #1 seeds in last year's postseason. The Titans lost to the Cincinnati Bengals while the Green Bay Packers lost to the San Francisco 49ers.


Avoid Betting Parlays

Parlays to sports bettors are like giant diamonds to jewel thieves. They are very appealing and will make you a lot of money, but the risk is very dangerous.


Parlays allow you to take two or more teams and combine them into one bet. If all bets win, the bettor wins a massive payout, but if any one of the bets loses, then that parlay loses automatically, and there is no payout.


Josh Appelbaum of VSiN explains it perfectly. "To put this in perspective, let's say a bettor wants to risk $100 each on 3 NFL moneyline bets. All three teams are underdogs: the Cleveland Browns +150, the Houston Texans +100, and the Cincinnati Bengals + 200. If you bet $100 on all three teams individually and all three won, you would win $450 total, plus get the $100 back that you risked on each team. But if you bet $100 on a 3-team parlay and all three won, you would win a payout of $1500."


Don’t Bet Every Game


With the NFL Playoffs starting, there will be fewer games, but that doesn't mean you need to bet every game. If you are a new bettor maybe select one game per day throughout the weekend. Sometimes the best bet is the bet you don't make.


As we mentioned at the beginning of this article, the NFL playoffs is one of the best times of the year for all sports fans and betting enthusiasts. Be sure to enjoy it.
