A trick used by professional football bettors that you can follow

American Football is a sport that lends itself perfectly to the online gambling industry. The speed, drama and excitement of the most popular fixtures in the NFL and the NCAAF games shown live on television are great fun to bet on. Football is one of the most popular sports in the world today with thousands of fans attending matches every weekend during the season and millions more worldwide following the play live on television. That popularity means it comes as no surprise to learn bookies take more bets on American Football than many other sports, including boxing, MMA and golf.

The best Canadian betting sites offer members generous odds on several markets and fixtures. The most popular outright betting market available is the winner of the Superbowl betting. Here you are tasked with predicting the team that will end the season as champions. Each match played in the NFL and College Football campaign also has dozens of pre-game and in-play markets.

Beating the bookie while enjoying a live NFL fixture is a perfect scenario for armchair fans, and, in this article, we explain how you can do that. Read on as we detail how you can register an online betting account in a matter of minutes, then bag a welcome bonus. We also divulge a sports betting industry secret that is used by professional gamblers but the bookies aren’t too keen on you finding out about it.

Register an account

Before betting on football you must check that online gambling is legal in your area and then that the bookie you intend to do it with is licensed by the relevant Gambling Commission. Once you have ensured you are covered and on the right side of the law it’s time to create an account. You can visit a betting app and browse but must have an active account registered with them before you can gamble.

It takes a matter of minutes to sign up, and you only need to complete this process once. When registering, you will gain a username name and password that can be used to access your account on a desktop computer at home or using the mobile app from anywhere in the country. Follow the steps below to register as quickly and securely as possible.

● Visit the homepage of your chosen bookie and click the Join button

● Complete the registration form by filling in all requested information

● Create a username and password

● Your account will be set up and ready to use

Get a welcome bonus

The best online sportsbooks offer new customers a welcome bonus free bet. Why do they do that? It’s a promotion that is used to ensure a site stands out from the competition and drives a constant stream of new players to the app. A generous sign-up bonus will encourage you to choose one bookie over the competition.

These deals come in many different shapes and sizes, including free bets, risk-free bets, enhanced odds cashback and profit boosts. The most popular at present is the deposit matched bet which works well for both the bookie and the bettor. Create an account following the steps above and make your first deposit before placing a sportsbook bet. You’ll then receive a welcome bonus free bet equal in value to your first bet. If you sign up and bet $100 on football, you’ll bank a $100 free bet. Secure your share today.

Take the advantage

The above free bet information leads us nicely onto our top advice to beat the bookies. This is the hack used by all professional bettors that the bookmakers don’t want you to know about, but they can’t do anything to stop you from taking full advantage.

There is nothing in the rules that says you can only bet with one online bookie. Open an account with as many betting apps as you wish and land the free bet from each. The more sites you join, the more free bet bonuses you’ll claim. That means you’ll be betting with the bookies’ money rather than your own.

In addition to multiple free bets, having accounts at different bookies increases your chances of getting the best odds on every bet you place. Check any respected betting odds comparison website, find out which site is the top offer then gamble with them.
