NFL Second Half Money Line Betting
Betting an NFL second half moneyline exactly what it seems. You are simply picking which team will win the game in the second half. The score from the first half has no impact because betting the 2nd half moneyline only takes into account the score from the second half. When you are looking at the money line for the second half of an NFL game the favorite will be listed as a negative number (ie. -300) that means you will have to bet that amount to win $100. The underdog for the second half will be listed as a positive number (ie. +300) that means you will win that amount on a $100 bet. NFL second half money line bets are the same as a full game NFL money line bet except that they only apply to the second half, again this means that any results from the 1st half does not count towards the bet.
NFL second half money line bets are ideal for teams that have a trend of getting behind early but make comebacks. Second half money line bets are also good for when a large favorite gets behind in the first half to an underdog. There are also options to bet NFL first half spreads. Betting NFL first half spreads is the same concept as betting NFL first half money lines, except you are betting against the spread (ATS).
NFL second half money lines are typically at lower odds than the NFL full game money lines. However, the second half money lines are adjusted based on a combination of the results from the first half with what the lines are for the whole game. This makes NFL second half money line betting popular among bettors who like to target teams who are big favorites in any given matchup and might be down at the first half. Underdogs should not be overlooked in NFL second half money line betting, especially from home underdogs who may be down after halftime but have a good chance for a second half come back.
There are also options to bet on NFL second half totals, as well as NFL second half team totals. These bets are betting on how many total points will be scored by both teams in the first half, or in the case of NFL second half team totals, the amount of points scored by only one of the teams.
