NFL Betting is probably one of the most popular pasttimes associated with the fall sports season favorite of many Americans and the world in general. With that said, what makes betting on the games so exciting and enticing? Is it the matchups? The excitement of making some extra cash? Making better picks than your buddies?

For most, it is making Sunday afternoon and Monday evening just a little more interesting with a friendly wager. There's nothing like routing your team on to victory and then collecting after it is all said and done. If you lose, well, there's another week of football action to come.

And, betting online is much more convenient and offers much more variety than going to Vegas to place your bets.

Parlays, teasers, props, 1st half totals, straight bets, and much more can be wagered at most online sportsbooks. In addition, if you win some cash, you can also take advantage of the sportsbook's casino, poker room, or horse race book. You'll also find competitive lines/odds, that are fair and generally unbiased.

Start slowly and always play within your limits. Many sportsbooks have systems in place that monitor a player's deposit activity. If the player suddenly deposits a large amount of money and loses it, many books will hold the transaction and verify the loss with the player before clearing the bet. Also, if a player exceeds his or her "velocity limit", or frequency of deposits, bets are also off.

Play safe and enjoy the Football season!
