With betting on the NFL growing in popularity, finding the best Betting apps is a must – if you’re taking it seriously. Even if you’re only treating it as a bit of fun it’s still not a bad idea to have all the best ammunition to go to war with.
The apps we have tested are not dedicated apps purely for American football, they also offer a range of betting markets across a large variety of sports. However, we were interested in knowing which apps were best for the hardcore American football fan.
Below you can find our thoughts, opinions and reasoning on why we consider the following apps to be the best NFL betting apps currently available.
Due to different bookmakers operating across different regions, we have compiled two lists. One for betting apps that accept customers in the USA and one for Europe. The European list can be found below the American list.
Best USA NFL betting apps – 2020
NFL betting in the United States.
America has begun to open its doors to online gambling across states other than Nevada and we are expecting most states to have some sort of gambling legislation included in their law throughout this year and next. Some States are further ahead of the process than others, such as New Jersey and Pennsylvania but we are confident that all states will soon have a legal online betting service that state residents can utilize and enjoy.
Below you will find our list of current American online bookmakers that are live and operational. There aren’t many at the moment available so our list of sportsbook apps is quite limited. However as more and more online bookmakers appear, the more and more we will test. Therefore the more and more this page will be updated.
The bookmakers mentioned may not yet be available in your state. If you are unsure we would recommend reading our full state by state rundown of the latest developments within the United States in relation to gambling.
1 – Betstars app
The Betstars app is our number one choice in the best NFL betting apps list for the USA at the moment mainly due to the fact of its availability. The app is live right now in the State of New Jersey and we expect this to expand out across more states as and when real money gaming becomes legitimized across America.
The Bet Stars App is brought to you by the better known Pokerstars brand, so there’s a lot of previous experience earned here in the online gaming world and it shows. A visually pleasing interface, with easy to read lines and spreads, make the app really easy to get along with. The wagering features and special offers also endure you keep coming back time and time again. Check it out for yourself.
New Jersey Residents only, 21+, Terms and conditions apply.
2 – Playsugarhouse app
The Playsugarhouse app is one of the first American Legitimate casinos to provide a land-based legalized betting sportsbook online. Therefore deservedly gets its place at number 2 in our NFL betting apps list. The Playsugarhouse app is currently only available in New Jersey. However, with Playsugarhouse (and other casinos) applying for an online sportsbook solution in Pennsylvania, we expect the app to be available in PA by early 2019.

3 – Sports Interaction
The Sports Interaction app is also currently available to residents of New Jersey, as well as across Canada.
Sports Interaction is a huge name in Canadian betting apps and already have racked up plenty of experience in the online sports wagering industry. A reliable name and a sturdy, robust app that is easy to use and navigate. There are plenty of NFL options as well as college football and International American football leagues to place wagers on. Point spread, Moneyline bets and over/unders are all available as are plenty of prop bets and alternative lines. This is the case for American football, but the same can be said across all other popular American sports as well.

NFL betting guide
NFL is obviously huge across the states, but it also has a growing worldwide following. More and more exposure is being given to countries such as the UK. So much so that some games are now being hosted in London, known as the NFL London games.
There are now plans to either create an NFL London team or to relocate one of the current NFL teams to the English capital. Last year’s record attendance in London goes to show that the sport is increasing in popularity all across the world.
Gambling on American Football is also a growing market that bookmakers are only too willing to accommodate. There is more choice now than ever before when it comes to wagering on American football from your phone or tablet. The NFL is where the majority of the focus is placed. However, the best US sportsbook apps will also provide wagering options on college basketball and sometimes even other national football leagues from Canada, South America and Europe.
American football betting markets.
Markets are becoming evermore expansive within wagering on the NFL. However, the most popular bets are still on the moneyline and point spread and Overs/Unders. These wagers are simple to understand and make watching the game live a more involved experience – even if you are not a fan of teams in play.
- Moneyline – Wagering on which team will win. prices will be displayed next to the relevant team name.
- Point Spread – A system used to balance the weighting of the two teams involved. Essentially giving the underdog a virtual head start to even the pricing.
- Over/under – betting on whether the game will have over or under a set number of points (both teams combined).
These types of bets are usually the headline bets and will be the first options you see when looking at American football bets. Therefore they are also the most convenient and easiest bets to place.
Head to the Football section on the betting app of your choice, select the wager you want to place and the bet then goes into your bet slip area. This usually creates a number on your wage slip to let you know how many selections you have selected in total. When you are ready to place your bet head to the bet slip, enter your stake amount and then tap on the place bet button. Job done. Wager placed.
The football community seems hellbent on statistics from within every aspect of the game. This has made the rise to a crazy amount of prop bets being offered by the bookmakers. Rule of thumb tends to be that if the bettor can think it, the bookmaker will be prepared to offer it. To give you a taste of what is out there currently, here are a few examples of bets being offered;
- Match betting
- Quarter betting
- Half betting
- Handicap betting
- Player to score
- Player to score first
- Position to score first
- Sack betting
- Field goal betting
- Point betting
- Winning margins
- Penalty betting
- Player betting
- Season betting
- Many, Many more.
Some of the apps will even allow you to create your own wagers. Therefore you are able to combine multiple elements together to create one single line. For example, a player to score a touchdown, a team to win and under a certain amount of points to be scored in the game.
