NFL First and Second Half Lines

Betting on the NFL creates the biggest handle for offshore sportsbooks taking action online and while the majority of the weekly action focuses on betting the side on the pointspread for the game as a whole, there are a number of great opportunities to make money betting on the lines posted for just the first half of a game or what takes place in the second half of the game.

The Sports Consensus - Handicapping Football - Does it Work?

The first thing to keep in mind when it comes to betting on the NFL is that there is still a fairly high level of parity between all 32 teams. While it is rare to see a double-digit spread in the first few weeks of a new NFL regular season, by the time Thanksgiving rolls around you pretty much know which teams are true playoff contenders and which teams are forced to ride out the string in another disappointing campaign?

That being said, just because New England is favored by 14 points in this Sunday’s game does not mean it is going to blow its opponent off the field in the first half. You might be able to find some solid value in a first half betting line that makes it attractive to go against the favorite over the first two quarters.

Some online sportsbooks will offer betting lines for just the first quarter which could add even more value to the equation. Studying the scoring trends for all 32 NFL teams, you will quickly identify a few teams that are noted for their fast starts, while also uncovering a few teams that are fast closers. Similar to a horse race, you are looking for teams that like to set the pace for any first quarter or first half bets and you are looking for the fast closers when it comes to betting any second half lines.

Normally, most of the online bookies will wait until later in the week or possibly even the weekend to set their betting lines on first and second half bets for Sunday’s NFL slate in order to gauge where the money is going on the games as a whole.

Traditionally, professional bettors or sharps tend to gravitate towards betting on the first half lines in light of the perceived upfront value as opposed to testing fate with trying to predict what happens in the second half of a game. The top teams in the NFL will usually be able to maintain or even expand a big halftime lead to put a team away. However, there are a number of teams that tend to keep things interesting right until the final gun with an inability to put teams away for good over the final two quarters.

Quite a bit of money exchanges hands almost every week of the NFL season on backdoor covers where the underdog closes the gap just enough to swing the money its way in what appeared to be a sure thing for the favorite. This is what makes second half betting in the NFL all the more exciting and attractive in certain matchups.

Most times when you have a seven-point spread for a game, the number is basically chopped in half to 3.5 for the first half spread. When it comes to spreads in the five to six point range, the first half line is usually set at three. If you are relatively new to the concept of betting first and second half NFL lines, then the first thing you will probably want to do is track all the betting lines and their movement for a week or two before jumping into the fray with an actual bet.
