Getting Ready for the 2022 NFL Season

 

The 2022 NFL season is drawing near, are you ready?

Key Points

Ė Getting ready for the 2022 NFL season starts with understanding some of the basics.

Ė Looking at recent trends can help you prepare for the 2022 NFL season.

Getting Ready for the 2022 NFL Season

The 2022 NFL season is not all that far away. Teams will begin reporting to training camps in late July with the preseason beginning with the annual Hall of Fame game on the first weekend in August.

With the kickoff less than 75 days away, hereís how you can plan on getting ready for the 2022 NFL season.

Understand the 2022 NFL Schedule

Remember, division opponents play each other twice each season. That accounts for six games on the schedule.

Teams then play each team in a division from the same conference. For example, the NFC West plays the NFC South this season. Thatís another four games.

Then, teams will crossover and play each team in a division from the other conference. This year, the Rams will face the AFC West. That adds another four games giving us 14.

Two games are played against a team from the same conference that finished in the same place in their division. First-place teams (from the previous season) play other first-place teams, second-place teams play second-place teams, and so on.

The final game on the NFL schedule is a game against a team from the opposite conference that finished in the same position last year. For example, the Rams will face AFC East winner Buffalo. That makes 17 games and can help bettors as they search for value bets during the 2022 season.

Find a Sportsbook for the 2022 NFL Season

If you donít have one already, now is the time to find your go-to sportsbook. Itís a great time to take advantage of any bonuses or incentives and sign up with a new one.

Itís also wise to keep accounts with a few different sportsbooks so you can shop for the best lines during the season. Finding a better number somewhere consistently could be the difference in a winning or losing season.

Understand Bets & Odds

If you arenít as experienced yet, make sure you understand the different bets and how they work. Be sure you know how to read NFL odds and lines.

There are all sorts of ways to bet on the NFL - moneyline, spread, totals, props, futures, and more. Make sure you understand each bet before haphazardly placing wagers.

Examine NFL Trends

In getting ready for the 2022 NFL season, it would help to familiarize yourself with some betting trends. For example, when betting totals you should be aware that there are a handful of key numbers.

More NFL games end with a combined total of 41 than any other number. That number represents the final total of 3.82 percent of NFL games. Next is 40 which accounts for 3.75 percent of totals. Other top numbers are 51, 47, and 44.

Knowing these common totals can help in betting the Over or Under this season. Also, itís worth looking at teams that have trend history. The Chiefs, for example, have been a high-scoring offense since they inserted Patrick Mahomes at quarterback. Last year They were one of just two teams (Minnesota) with an Over percentage of greater than 60 (12-8 O/U).

In betting against the spread, it may also help to examine some league-wide and team-wide trends. In 2021, the Dallas Cowboys were the best team against the spread with a 13-5 ATS mark. The Detroit Lions were not very successful in terms of wins and losses, but they were a team to back with an 11-6 record ATS.

If you match trends with the many different ways to bet on football, there is profit to be had. With so many wagering options, smart betting is a must.

Betting Week 1 of the 2022 NFL Season

Just like the teams that will play this NFL season, itís important for bettors to get off to a good start in 2022. That means being prepared for Week 1. You can be sure top football sportsbooks are prepared.

History suggests that there are certain teams that fare better than others in the opening week of an NFL season. Since the betting public tends to favor home teams and favorites, there is some value on road underdogsÖbut not all road underdogs.

In narrowing down the field a bit, we find that road underdogs that didnít make the playoffs the previous year are undervalued. The public tends to rely too much on recency, i.e. last year.

Since 2005, road underdogs that failed to make the postseason the previous year are 73-46-4 ATS. You can break it down even further to road underdogs that won between four and six games the previous season. Those teams are 65-33-2 ATS in Week 1 games since 2005. Thatís a 66 percent winning percentage.

Looking for trends like these can help NFL bettors get off to a good start in 2022. Hereís to a successful 2022 NFL betting season!
