What are prop bets? 

Proposition, or prop, betting means putting wagers on instances that happen in a specific game. It does not necessarily mean wagering on who wins or loses. More like betting on something that will happen in that specific game or match. 

Different sportsbooks have a variety of NFL team and player prop bets for every game. NFL season prop bets are also available at the start of the regular season. This allows players to wager on what they think the outcome of the season will be. 

Top NFL Season Prop Bets 

Player Props 

NFL player props are all about the player’s performance. Bettors place wagers based on their prediction for that specific player. For example, they can place a wager on how many receptions a receiver will be able to make in a specific game. Another is the total rushing yards a running back will have in a game. The most popular player prop is wagering on the NFL season MVP. Players can place their bets on a player who they think will win the award at the end of the regular season. 

Win Totals 

In this type of prop bet, players can wager on a team’s win totals in the upcoming season. The bookie will set a limit or a line. As an example, the bookie sets the Cowboys at 10.5 wins, players can then wager on either the over or the under. This type of prop betting is less volatile than the others. 

Team Props 

Another type of wager is the Team props. Here, players have the chance to wager on a specific team. There are a variety of props that are available. Players can wager on things like the total number of points in a game, penalties, sacks allowed, total touchdowns made, and many more. 

Draft Props 

A recent type of NFL prop bet that is slowly gaining popularity is the NFL Draft prop bet. In this type of betting, players have the chance to wager on who they think will be the No.1 pick in the NFL Draft. Also, they can bet on the over or under of where a prospect is going to be drafted. Now, even team positions in the first round of the draft can be wagered on. 

Live Props

A newer way to place bets in the NFL is via live betting. Here, players can bet on different NFL prop bets even while the game is ongoing. They can bet on occurrences like which player scores the first touchdown, or will a certain player catch 5 or more passes. There are a lot of these available so be sure to check with your favorite sportsbook and prop bets websites. 

Super Bowl Props 

Perhaps the most exciting time to place a wager on the NFL is during its final game in the Super Bowl. There are numerous Super Bowl prop bets to choose from. These may include occurrences like who’s going to win the MVP, who scores a touchdown, and individual yardage totals for the players.
