Are You Ready For Some Football?

It's getting close and I don't know about you but I am more than ready for pigskin to start flying for this year's NFL season. Rookies have mostly reported and veterans are right behind them on the way for the start of training camp. The NFL preseason officially kicks off in two weeks with the Hall of Fame game in Canton, Ohio when the Denver Broncos will take the field versus the Atlanta Falcons. 

And while I know I am excited to root on my team (The Dolphins, unfortunately) NFL football also kicks off another unofficial season that seems to grow bigger every year. I'm talking about betting, it seems more and more people are betting the NFL on an annual basis and it almost comes off as a rite of passage for some. Now if you are someone that plans on partaking in this activity there is no better place to look then offshore sportsbooks for your betting needs. Bonuses, contests, reduced vig and various other promotions await those willing to look. Let's take a glance at a few things to check out when deciding which books to deposit your hard-earned money for the NFL season. 


Football season is one of the best times of the year for various contest from different offshore books. They are all looking for a hook to bring in punters and will offer some really attractive contests to help earn your business. The smart player knows getting a few extra shots at some free money is always a good thing and will take advantage of these contests. 

Add Football Money Line's To Your Betting Portfolio

One of my personal favorite NFL contest shops is AmericasBookie. They offer some great contest for the football season including a huge last man standing contest that offered over $5k in prizes last year for those that could survive the gauntlet of picking winners in the NFL weekly. They also offer a great NFL deposit bonus and have the 33Club, where you pick a team for the NFL season and if they score 33 points you get free cash. This is a great shop for players looking for somewhere for NFL action as they go out of there way to give you the most bang for your buck. 

Not a free contest but probably worth mentioning as well. MyBookie is running their own version of Vegas's ultra-popular SuperContest. Looks like will have a $150k prize pool with entries costing only $100. Check it out if you're a fan of chasing big prizes for small investments.  

Reduced Vig/Odds

If you are a heavy volume player that knows he will be playing a lot then this is a very attractive option. Reduced vig is exactly what it says, rather than laying your traditional -110 on sides and totals for football games reduced offers a lower number (often -105 or -108). 5dimes made this a must-have offering -105 on football sides and totals on all the games. 

How To Spot Teams That Could Start the NFL Season Smoking Hot

We are all going to lose a few along the way, an example of reduced juice shows a player playing -110s laying $110 to win $100. Using the above-reduced number you only had to lay $105 to win that same $100. Now you may be thinking 5 dollars is not a big "bonus" but for a volume guy, this could be huge. I have 10-15 NFL plays weekly, the savings can really add up. 


There is no better time to deposit at your favorite offshore sportsbook than at the beginning of NFL and football season. The books know player money is at its peak and the pool of players will never be bigger. To entice those players books will offer huge bonus offers that are great bankroll boosters for players of all levels. You are going to be playing anyway, why not get a few extra dollars to the bottom line by taking advantage of a great bonus offer. I have not started seeing specific football promos rolling out yet but keep your eyes open as they will be here sooner rather than later.  

The bottom line is that football is almost here and there is no better time to be a player in the offshore industry. Do a little research and you can maximize the value you get with your deposit dollar no matter what level of player you are. And you should always look for value if you are going to bring home the money in this industry
