NFL Blows the Whistle on Sports Betting

NFL Blows the Whistle on Sports Betting

The National Football League (NFL) has taken more steps to distance itself from gambling on games.

The NFL has long opposed sports betting and have recently made that stance known to the public. November 21 marked the release date for 'Silver Linings Playbook' a new movie featuring Bradley Cooper (The Hangover), Jennifer Lawrence (Hunger Games), and Robert DeNiro who plays a die hard Eagles fan and whose performance has an early Oscar buzz fluttering around. Following the release of the film the NFL gave word that they are cancelling an interview with Bradley Cooper on Rich Eisens Thanksgiving Podcast edition because in the movie DeNiro's character plays a part-time Bookie. I don't think it would surprise anyone that NFL sports betting generates billions of dollars annually and there are more and more ways to find a line on the games.

Where to find the hottest bets

With the NFL baring down on sports betting you may think it would be hard to find legal operators to take your action but you would be wrong. Throughout Europe and basically anywhere else in the world outside of the US, there are unbelievably reliable and trustworthy sportsbook operators ready to take your picks before Sunday afternoon. Legendary online gaming operators William Hill and bet365 have decades of experience between them and offer the best in online NFL betting, offer NFL betting advice, and have the hottest nfl betting trends and picks.

William Hill Sportsbook is one of the most reputable and well-known operators in the industry, and the same can be said about bet365. With Week 16 already underway both online Sportsbooks have the best NFL picks betting located by clicking on American Football button on their sportsbook pages. There, you will be blown away by the attention to detail and the many ways to play. You can bet on virtually anything from winning margins, number of total touchdown's, longest field goal made, team to score first and so much more. There is also in-game betting, 3-way betting, and all the game lines for week 16.

Featured Bets

An early game this week saw the Titans beat the Jets 14-10.  Before the rest of the action kicks off, William Hill has got the Falcons at -210 at the Lions at +175, the Browns at +500 at the -700 Broncos, the Patriots are at -1600 at the +800 Jaguars, and the rest of the games are posted as well. Bet365 has all that and more with the Titans +12.5 to the -12.5 Packers in what should be a great game, the Colts are at -7.0 at the +7.0 Chiefs, the 49ers are at -1.0 against the +1.0 Seahawks, and as all the games unwind visit either site for a long list of in-play wagers.

Even if the NFL is against putting your hard earned cash up on the hardest hitting action in sports, there are places all over the world that understand and cater to those of us that make bets. If you haven't watched the game with money on the line you haven't really watched the game.
