NFL picks from Betway Insider

The Betway Insider provides NFL picks and predictions for all the biggest games throughout the season.

As well as picking games throughout the regular season, our NFL picks continue into the postseason and the Super Bowl. 

All NFL predictions provided by the Betway Insider are free. 

What is the schedule for the 2021 NFL season?

The 2021 NFL season will start on September 9, with defending Super Bowl champions Tampa Bay hosting Dallas in the NFL Kickoff Game.

The regular season is scheduled to finish on January 9, before the playoffs start on January 15.

Super Bowl LVI is slated to take place at the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles – home to the Rams and the Chargers – on February 13.

The 2021 season will be the first in which the regular season is expanded to 17 games per team.

How will the new 17-game schedule work?

Under the previous 16-game schedule, teams played divisional rivals twice, one game against four teams from another division in their conference, one game against four teams from a division in the other conference, and one game against the two teams in their conference that finished in the same position in their respective divisions.

The pairings for the initial 16 games in 2021 are:

Intra-conference: AFC East vs AFC South, AFC North vs AFC West, NFC East vs NFC South, NFC West vs NFC North

Inter-conference: AFC East vs NFC South, AFC North vs NFC North, AFC South vs NFC West, AFC West vs NFC East.

The extra 17th game per team will be a fifth inter-conference game. This will be based on finishing positions from the previous season. For example, a team that finished third in their division will play a team that finished third in their division in the other conference.

The divisional pairings are NFC East vs AFC East, NFC West vs AFC North, NFC South vs AFC South, NFC North vs AFC West.

What changes have been made for the 2021 NFL playoffs?

The NFL playoffs will remain the same this season.

They are scheduled to begin on January 15 with the Wild Card Round, with three Wild Card games to be played in each conference.

The Divisional Round is scheduled for January 22 and 23, and will see the top seed in the conference play the lowest remaining seed, and the other two remaining teams playing each other.

The winners will advance to the Conference Championships, which are slated for January 30.

The two Conference champions will then face off at Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles on February 13.

Who are the Betway Insider experts?

Our experts each have several years’ experience in the betting industry, and have a strong track record of producing profit.

When are NFL picks published?

The Betway Insider produce predictions on a weekly basis during the season.

Our NFL tips will be published on our website by Thursday each week at the very latest, in time for the weekend action.

What types of NFL picks do Betway provide?

Our NFL betting experts at Betway Insider produce several different types of predictions across the season.

During the regular season, they will produce a weekly four-fold made up of picks for that weekend's action.

This consists of four teams they believe will win their game that weekend. You are able to back each tip individually or combine them into a four-fold wager.

As well as those picks covering the weekend action, our experts will also produce a #BetYourWay for every edition of Thursday Night Football throughout the season.

This consists of four or five match-specific tips that you are able to back individually or use as part of a multi-leg #BetYourWay.

When the postseason rolls round, our experts will continue to produce tips on a weekly basis, with picks provided for each round of the playoffs.

And finally, for the Super Bowl, we will produce five match-specific tips to build into a #BetYourWay.

We may also ask our traders to price up some novelty bets for the Big Game, which can be related to anything from the length of the national anthem to the number of tweets that Donald Trump will put out during the Super Bowl. 

How do you bet on NFL?

If you are unsure of how betting odds work, read our handy guide which provides you with all the information you need to start betting.

When you’re ready to place a bet, your first option is to head to the Betway Insider website to read through our experts’ tips. Each article will have a link to the sportsbook, where you can then place your bet.

Otherwise you can head straight to the Betway sportsbook to place your bet.

The most popular market on the sportsbook for NFL betting is the match winner market, where you place a bet on the result of a match.

Another popular market is handicap, or spread betting, in which one team is handed an advantage to even the match up. For example, if one team is a heavy favourite they may be given a handicap of -9.5, meaning they must win the match by 10 points or more for the bet to come in. 

Aside from betting on the result of the match, you can also bet on how many points you think will be scored. The sportsbook will display a total, for example 54.5, and you can bet on whether you believe there will be more or less than that number in a specific match. 

You are also able to place bets on player performances, such as picking a player to score a touchdown, or a quarterback to throw a certain number of touchdown passes.

Other than these main markets, there are hundreds of other outcomes that you are able to bet on before an NFL match. Simply head to the Betway sportsbook to discover your options.
