It hasn’t taken long for the predictions and betting on the new NFL season to start, as fans of the Baltimore Ravens (and those who bet on them to win it) will still be celebrating their Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers. One of the most notable things about the odds for teams in the new NFL season is that the Ravens are not the favourites to repeat their triumph – which is unusual and marks NFL betting out as different from most other types of sports betting. Of course there are a number of reasons for this, including form and player issues, but it shows that betting on the NFL itself can be as unpredictable as playing an NFL slot at an online casino.
The 49ers have odds of 7/1 at many sites for the new season – compared to 12/1 for the Ravens. These odds make the side from San Francisco joint favourites along with the Broncos, and much of this is down to the presence of star quarterbacks Colin Kaepernick and Peyton Manning in these sides. However the spectacular form of the Broncos in the latter stages of last season is also a major factor, but it should be remembered that they were the hot favourites last time out – and failed to deliver. These sides are also amongst the favourites for the AFC and NFC divisions, obviously, but the likes of the New England Patriots and the Green Bay Packers are also considered contenders. Many will fancy a bet on the Ravens at 12/1 though, given how good they were in the Super Bowl.
Given the number of teams in the running, and the unpredictable form they often display, some will prefer to get their fix of NFL and betting from playing an NFL slots game at an online casino like www.iphonecasino.com.au. After all, a game like $5 Million Touchdown does provide genuine NFL related thrills – particularly with its Touchdown Bonus Game, where you have to pass the ball between players until you score a touchdown, However beyond this, the reel icons are NFL themed, including key elements like tackles, throws, kicks and footballs, making it both a great slots game and a fantastic game for NFL fans.
