Free bets for the NFL

Unfortunately us Americans don’t have a lot of choice when it comes to betting online. With so many states outlawing online gambling its becoming harder and harder to place a bet on the NFL. Well thanks to online comparison sites like its becoming just a little easier to find the best free bets to place. When signing up to new betting sites its certainly worth checking out any existing reviews from such comparison sites, this allows you to judge whether the site itself will honour your bets. As currently the American betting world is a little like the Wild West there are so many sites that are willing to take your bets then they won’t pay out on them.

Unlike in Britain where all of the sites that are online have to be licensed and regulated to ensure that they are following the rules and paying out on any winning bets.

Types of free bets available

When betting online there are a wide selection of free bets available to choose from. Here are a few of our favourites that we are always on the look out for. Matched deposit bonuses, the big daddies of the betting world very much like claiming casino bonuses in the way that you’ll get a lot of upfront cash to bet with. However you’ll also have a harder time converting any of your bonus money into actual withdrawal cash. We’d only advise claiming these bonuses if you’re an experienced bettor, if you’re new to this then perhaps you should take a look at a welcome offer that is a little less labour intensive such as a risk free bet. These are a great way to get introduced to an online bookmakers without actually having to risk money because if your first bet doesn’t come in well they’ll give you your money back as free bet tokens to use again.

What we’ve found when betting on the NFL though is that a lot of places tend to offer a matched bet instead of any of the other bonuses that we’ve mentioned. This is when the betting website will match your first bet to a set amount. Think 100% up to $40 or something similar, so if you wanted to take the whole $40 bonus then you would have to deposit and wager $40 on what ever odds they have stated the in the sites terms and conditions.

This takes me onto the next bit, make sure you always check out every offers T&C’s just to make sure that the offer is easily achievable. Theres nothing worse than claiming the offer and then not being able to cash your bonus out once you’ve completed.
