3 Ways Oddsmarket Can Improve Your 2018 NFL Season

3 Ways Oddsmarket Can Improve Your 2018 NFL Season

The draft is over and organizations are loading up on undrafted free agents to fill up their training camps. You know what this means! We are quickly creeping up on preseason NFL football and will be heading into full-fledged, smash-mouthed regular season NFL football shortly after!

But it’s time for a change, something new in your NFL content consumption regimen. Something that goes beyond the basic beat writers and the same tired, old narratives falling out of the mouths of the talking heads on ESPN.

Oddsmarket is that fresh face we’ve been waiting for. It’s got the goods to help us enjoy our NFL season even more than we already do. Here’s how.

Free Game Previews

We all love to know what the ‘experts’ think about given a given matchup. Part of it is ego, we love the feeling of validation we get when a famous talking head delivers the same information to millions of people that we thought of first.

We also love to see the same people proven wrong, and our own game analysis to be correct.

But it is getting harder and harder to find honest previews. The large sites follow the money and beat writers are biased.

Since Oddsmarket is based around the oddsand betting markets, the reviews and previews are less biased in nature because these authors want to win money. Game previews for Football, Soccer, Baseball, and Basketball are going to be pandering to the masses or their hometown crowd.

You’ll get raw data coupled with the gut feel produced by recent momentum or lack thereof to get in-depth analysis of the games.

Data, data, data!

Did I mention data? Oddsmarket is brand new but it is already utilizing its unique algorithms for data aggregation. Since professional bettors rely so heavily on creating models, the historical data gathered is insane. And it is only going to get more comprehensive as time goes on. Sure, your buddy might know Johnny Unitas’s passer rating from his 1973 season with the Chargers  —hint: it wasn’t great.  But you’ll be able to easily find and remember ratios like your team’s points allowed at home vs. the visiting team’s average points scored on the road. And breaking it down further into circumstantial data such as the percentage that Team X covers the spread when playing on the road in non-conference matchups.

No one will be able to challenge your statistical knowledge! Hello Fantasy Football buffs, you’re about to get more useful information to use against your league.

Oddsmarket puts a plethora of useful gizmos at your fingertips.

Live Real-Time Odds

I already know that The Patriots are -300 favorites on the moneyline in their opener against the Texans and are 7.5 point favs against the spread. Plus the line has moved from the open of -265 to where it sits now at -300 meaning money is already coming in on the Pats.

I already know who’s favored in every single Week 1 game and I am already assessing my qualified underdogs. And you can too! Just hit the Sports A-Z drop down at the top next to the Oddsmarket logo and select American Football, choose the market, like Moneyline, Point Spread, Total, or 1st Half markets, Choose the country (USA not Canada) and NFL.

You see all of the odds from the top sportsbooks around the world and they update in real time.

Futures & Outrights

In a similar vein, you can quickly check your team’s probability at winning the Super Bowlor Conference, which is also updated in real time.

Just click ‘Betting Resources’ then select ‘Outright Odds’ from the drop down and follow the same process as before, choose your sport, league, etc.

So if you were say … a Steelers fan, looking across all of the prices on the board, I can see the average odds on Pittsburgh winning the AFC is +400. This gives them an implied probability of 20%. You can apply this information in many ways. Most definitely at the barstool.

Bet Tracker

If you even casually bet on sports this tool is a life-saver! While perusing the NFL odds, simply click on the odds for the team and odds you like and you will get an option to add that to your bet slip and bet tracker. Now you don’t have to place any bets through Oddsmarket but the ability to seamlessly track every bet at the exact price you paid is well … priceless!

For instance, I already took the Texans to cover the 7.5-point spread against the Pats in Week 1 so, on Oddsmarket, I signed in and clicked on the Houston Texans +7.5 and added that play to my bet tracker.

Now, my money management is even easier because Oddsmarket will track my exact win/loss percentage for me!


There are many more features that will help you enjoy your NFL season, like event calendars and calculators, but I would end up going on all day.

Check out Oddsmarket this football season. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose!
