How to bet on the XFL- Everything that you need to know

The recently-launched XFL showcases a heavy impact on sports betting odds and XFL spread. Jeffrey Pollack, the president of XFL also recognizes the element of legal sports betting. In an interview, he had said that it is as important as the ball, jersey and helmet are for the game.

The new rules of XFL were specifically built by keeping the sports betting fans in mind. But how is it going to affect the next XFL season? Let’s take a closer look at it:

Where can you bet the next season of XFL?

All the major and popular sportsbook will be up for betting. In week 1 of XFL, Dallas Renegades, Tampa Bay Vipers, Houston Roughnecks, and the DC defenders were opened as favorites. The DC defenders shocked the fans by covering a 31-19 win. On the other hand, Houston Roughnecks covered a 37-17 win.

If we talk about authorizing XFL spread, Rhode Islands, Nevada, Iowa, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey are already ahead of other states. More and more states will authorize betting markets as the season will get underway. There’s nothing to worry about as many sportsbooks did not offer lines until after week 1 during the AAF competition.

What can fans bet on?

Like NFL, fans can bet on XFL spread, season win totals, and odds to win the championship. Furthermore, total wins on individual XFL games will be offered on a weekly basis.

How will it differ from NFL betting?

Betting limits usually vary from book to book, however this time, it will be lower than the typical NFL game’s limits. Moreover, bettors require to expect lines to move promptly as the oddsmakers will work smartly to gauge the new betting patterns and XFL rules.

How will the new rules change XFL betting?

The new rules are specifically designed to speed up the game. This ensures a direct impact on scoring and betting. As announced by the official leagues, 167 plays per game were the absolute average of XFL’s preseason games.

How will the new rules impact betting?

In the XFL’s new season, a play run from the two-yard line gives you 1 point. Similarly, a play run from the 5-yard line and 10-yard line gives you 2 and 3 points respectively. The standard key betting numbers, which are 7 and 3 will become irrelevant and this will open up a whole new angle of XFL betting.

Other than that, the overtime in the XFL season will consist of a team playing to get 5 one-play possessions in order to score from the 5-yard line. This will continue until one of the teams is mathematically eliminated from the equation. If the point spread of the game is 6 or less, the game will always be in play.

Unlike AAF, XFL will not provide insufficient information about the players’ injuries. Therefore, XFL’s injury reports will be the same as that of the NFL’s. The fans will have updates throughout the week. This will help the bettors to bet more whole-heartedly.
