General betting rules apply to all NFL football futures bets. In addition, the following rules are specific to betting on NFL futures.
All NFL football games including Super Bowl Betting must go at least 55 minutes of play for futures bets on the game to have 'action'.
Football overtime periods count as part of the wagered game, if played, unless otherwise noted for all NFL futures bets and betting on the Super Bowl.
Futures bets on any Super Bowl or NFL football game that is postponed or abandoned before at least 55 minutes of play will be considered 'no action', unless the outcome of the bet has already been decided at the time of abandonment - i.e. 'first touchdown scorer bets' will stand once a touchdown has been scored in the game.
An NFL college game or superbowl betting must go 55 minutes of play for a futures bet on the Over/Under to be considered 'action', even if the total score in the game is already more than the over handicap offered for that event.
A Winning NFL football Futures Bet Margin: Winning margin betting is from scratch (the start of the game)
A futures bet is a bet on an event where there are many competitors, sometimes made long in advance of the event taking place.
Futures are most common in events like Super Bowl betting, motor racing, NASCAR, or golf, among others. Futures are also posted in major competitions, like Major League Baseball and the NFL, at the start of the season, where players can get better odds on a team in which they have confidence than they would get later in the season or complete early Superbowl betting.
Because of the number of competitors, futures bets offer larger payouts. The larger payoffs are offset by the increased difficulty of picking a winner.
