While the majority of bets look at the results of today’s or next week’s game, Future bets are wagers on long-term/end of season results. Some common NFL Future bets include the winner of this year’s Super Bowl, regular season MVP, and a team’s win total at the end of the season. Futures are great for a number of reasons. They let you ride your bet for the entire season, the markets for them are usually filled with big plus money options, and watching the odds in the market go up and down as each NFL week passes is always entertaining to watch.
At FlashPicks, we generally share two types of Future bets:
Favorites: Who is the most probable to win a specific Future market
Dark Horses: A future pick that we think has a higher chance of winning than what the sportsbooks are showing
