The NFL (National Football League) is the best football league in the world. It’s 32 teams, playing out a gruelling 17-week regular-season schedule, with a post-season if you're good enough. The Super Bowl – its championship game – is the most bet-on annual sporting event in the world.
The NFL and sports betting have a very close relationship. NFL betting is a multi-billion dollar industry, with the Super Bowl alone seeing nearly $10 billion in bets last year in America, making it the most profitable league in the world for sportsbooks.
