American Football Betting
Although only a very distant relation of the beautiful game as played outside of the States, American Football has its fair share of fans here in Nigeria. Teams like the Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears are now household names over here, and a significant number of punters now tune-in to major events in US Football like the Superbowl.
Nigeria licensed betting suppliers have been quick to capitalise on this increased interest in America's most watched sport, and many now supply markets for the main events in the American Football Betting calendar.
American Football Betting Events
The premiere event in the US Football betting calendar is the Superbowl, the championship prize of the National Football League (NFL), which has been running every year since 1967 and now constitutes one of the US's most celebrated annual events. Next to the Superbowl, the NFL is, of course, the top attraction for punters, and betting markets are generally available for its two conferences, the American Football Conference (AFC) and National Football Conference (NFC) and divisions. Besides the NFL, College Football attracts a not insignificant bit of attention, and some betting suppliers offer fixed odds markets for the NCAA.

SUPPLIERS AND MARKETS
American football fans have plenty of choice when it comes to choosing an online bookmaker as most of the sites listed in our directory supply American Football markets of some description. Naturally, some bookmakers don't offer as much choice as much choice as others, but you'll find no difficulty in finding markets for the Superbowl, as nearly all the suppliers we checked offered outright winner betting on the premiere event in the American Football betting Calendar, even as long term markets. This particularly applies to Coral, Sporting Odds, Paddy Power (under "North American Sports"), Stan James, and Betfair. American Football fans should also note the widespread availability of individual match coupons when the NFL season is in play.
