How does American football actually work?

Every sport has its own rules so, before betting on American football, it’s important to understand the rules. In order to get ready to place a sports bet on this sport, we are going to briefly explain the rules and the types of bets or you.

In American football, as in many other sports, the idea is that a team scores more points than their opponents during a match. The battle takes place in four fifteen minutes sections.

In American football, points are scored by getting the ball to the endzone (behind the lines), by catching a ball, also called a touchdown, or by scoring a field goal by shooting the ball between the goal posts. Bonus points can also be earned by a kick (a kick after a touchdown).

There is always an attacking team and a defensive team. The attacking team gets 4 attempts to cross the 10-yard field and reach the endline. After 3 unsuccessful attempts, the attacking team can try to score a field goal.

Have the teams not scored after four quarters? Then the game goes to overtime and the team that scores first wins the game.

Take advantage of several types of bets

Do you want to bet on American football? At Circus you can choose to bet on different aspects. For example, what do you think of:

Betting on the winner or the moneyline

Do you feel like a certain team is going to win? Then place your bet on the winner of the match.

Betting on the number of goals

Do you have a feeling that a certain team is going to get a certain score? Then bet on the number of goals of the match.

Betting on the first half/match

Do you feel like going for something more specific? Then predict the outcome of the first half and the result of the full match.

Betting on the first or last touchdown maker

Are you aware of the strengths and weaknesses of each player and have a feeling about who is going to make the first or last touchdown? Then this bet is for you! Does the player of your choice end up not playing? Then your bet will be refunded.

But that's not all! At Circus you can also place bets on the quarters or a specific half, as well as bet with a handicap, or place an over/ under bet. The possibilities are endless. So, what are you waiting for?
