Latest NFL Predictions
New York have been weak in defense, allowing opponents almost 0.6 points per play — the league’s worst. San Francisco boast the NFL’s best rush attack and, having covered the Spread in 9 of their last 10 games as a home favorite, can pile up a big score against the Giants in prime time.
Philadelphia Eagles blew up in the Super Bowl but have improved what was already one of the best squads in the league during the off-season. They have star quality in quarterback Jalen Hurts and will be eager to avenge their Super Bowl loss.
Atlanta Falcons managed respectable 7-10 records in Arthur Smith’s first two seasons in charge and have built a well-rounded squad, spending big to address their defence in the offseason. The Falcons have drafted a host of offensive talent over the last three seasons, including potentially a generational talent in running-back Bijan Robinson and can dominante a wide-open division.
San Francisco 49ers finished four games better off than the Seattle Seahawks in last year’s NFC West standings and can maintain that gap. If they can keep the likes of Deebo Samuel, George Kittle and quarterback Brock Purdy fit they have a solid offence and their defensive unit is one of the best in the league.
The Detroit Lions recovered from a dreadful to go 8-2 in their final ten games of last season and they are justified favourites ahead of a Vikings side that rode their luck last season and a Green Bay Packers outfit in transition after Aaron Rodgers left.
Buffalo Bills underwhelmed in the play-offs last season but have retained the core of their impressive offence and have a favourable schedule compared to the New England Jets, who may need time to adapt after the arrival of Aaron Rodgers.
The Cincinnati Bengals have topped their division for the last two seasons and, while they may have a tougher time besting the improving Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns, they can call upon the best quarterback in the division in Joe Burrow, who can make all the difference.
The AFC South is one of the worst divisions in the NFL and Jacksonville Jaguars can take the crown for a second straight year. Trevor Lawrence has another full season under his belt at quarterback and the Jaguars have made some solid additions in the draft.
It’s hard to back against a side that have won seven consecutive AFC West titles and are the reigning Super Bowl champions. Once again, Patrick Mahomes will take charge of an exciting offence and Andy Reid remains head coach. This should be business as usual for the Chiefs.
Returning to the Super Bowl after losing the previous year is a huge ask – but Philadelphia Eagles are perhaps a team who have the resolve to get back to the showpiece and go one better. The Eagles went 14-3 in the regular season last year and are projected to have in the region of 13 wins in 2023, despite facing a tougher schedule. If they are able to match those expectations, they could well end up being the number-one seed in the NFC once again – putting them in a strong position for Super Bowl redemption.

NFL Predictions FAQs
When do you post your NFL tips?
Given that most American football matches take place on Saturday, our NFL tips will be posted the Thursday or Friday before each round of games.
What markets do you offer?
Our tipsters cover every game of the 17-week regular season, providing you with a tip and detailed betting preview for each fixture. When the post-season comes around we ramp things up even further, bringing you the absolute best NFL predictions possible for the Super Bowl and other big end-of-season games. Here are some of the markets we cover for all NFL matches:
NFL Accumulators – These are among our most popular bets – who doesn’t love a good acca? To make these, we combine some of the best predictions from our selection of previews, looking to win big from a small stake.
Anytime Touchdown Scorers – This is another type of accumulator for, you guessed it, touchdown scorers. We analyse a handful of the weekend’s games, decide on the best player from each team for an anytime touchdown bet, and then place them all into an accumulator.
NFL handicap betting – Also known as ‘betting against the spread’, this works just like handicap betting in football. It’s simple – if you go for a New England Patriots -2.5 point spread, then they must win their game by at least 3 points for the bet to come in. If the spread is a whole number and the team win by exactly that number of points then the bet is refunded.
NFL Totals Betting – Pretty much what it says on the tin, this is betting on the total number of points to be scored in a match. For example, if you go for Over 57 total match points, then there will need to be more than 57 points scored in the match for the bet to come in. If the match produces exactly 57 points then you will receive a refund.
How to bet on the NFL
So, what should you consider when betting on American football? While our NFL betting tips will cover everything in great detail, it doesn’t hurt to supplement this with a bit of your own knowledge.
Lots of punters like to look at turnovers created, which is a sign of a good defence. In attack, look out for the term ‘offensive efficiency’, which shows you how often a team manages to finish a drive with a touchdown.
Other factors include home advantage, which is a major factor in American football thanks to the colossal stadiums and frenetic crowds. A little more complex, but still useful, is DVOA. These are numbers that indicate how well defences do against certain position groups and how well they perform down the right or left side. There are also numbers on offensive players too.
How best to bet on American football
The most important thing is to be informed. Our tips are given by some of the best experts in their field, while their detailed previews show just how knowledgeable they are. You can also get one over the bookmaker by having a look at some of the statistics detailed in the question above.
Using free bets is another great way to bet on American football, and you can find the best of these on our free bets page. Once there you can compare all the big bookies’ offers and pick the best one for you.
