Where Can You Bet On TNF In Arizona?
You can bet on the NFL in Arizona as you watch these Thursday Night Football games on Amazon Prime. All of the traditional bets will be available, as well as prop bets when you visit your favorite AZ sportsbooks.
Popular Bets on NFL's Thursday Night Football
While there are many ways to bet on Thursday Night Football, here are some of the most popular, fun and profitable wagers you should be making:
The moneyline is the simplest bet in the NFL. Players choose which team will win as the final margin of victory does not matter. Here is an example of what a moneyline bet would look like on Thursday Night Football (or during any NFL game):
Las Vegas Raiders (+125) vs. Los Angeles Rams (-150)
In this example, the Rams are the favorites, indicated by the (-) symbol. A $150 bet would win back the original stake plus $100. The Raiders are the underdog, as indicated by the (+) symbol. A $100 bet would pay back the original stake plus $125 in profit.
Live Betting Thursday Night Football
Players in Arizona can live bet on Thursday Night Football, along with every other NFL game. Live betting options include moneyline, point spread and total bets. Some sites may even offer live prop bets, but be sure to check out each site's live betting options.
A parlay bet is when multiple bets are combined into a single bet. For a parlay bet to win, all legs of the bet must hit. But parlay bets have appeal because they offer bigger payouts. Players can parlay the moneyline/point spread with the point total during a Thursday Night Football game for better odds and a higher payout.
A point spread is a way oddsmakers and online sportsbooks balance two uneven teams. Here is an example of how a point spread could look for an NFL game:
Dallas Cowboys +3.5 (-110) at Tennessee Titans -3.5 (-110)
In this example, the Cowboys are a 3.5-point underdog. Dallas would need to win outright or lose by no more than 3 points to cover the spread. Likewise, the Titans are 3.5-point favorites. Washington would need to win by 4 or more points to cover the spread. The payout for each team, in this case, is -110, meaning that a player would need to wager $110 to earn a $100 profit.
Another way to bet on the NFL is by point totals. Online sportsbooks will set a total of points that are expected to be scored in a game and it's up to bettors in AZ to wager on the Over or Under. Here is an example:
OVER 56.5 (-110)
UNDER 56.5 (-110)
In this case, the payout for both bets is the same at -110. Point totals can drastically differ from site to site, so be sure to shop for the best lines before placing a bet. If the two teams combine to score 57 or more points in a game, the Over bettors win. If the teams combine for 56 or fewer points, the Under wagers win.
One of the most fun and popular new ways to bet on the NFL is with proposition, or "prop" wagers. Prop bets are a way to bet on a game, team, or player without the final results of a contest becoming a factor. For example, a bettor can wager on the total amount of passing touchdowns for Kyler Murray in a game. Or, players can wager on the number of made field goals for both teams during a Thursday Night game. Be sure to check out your favorite online sportsbooks to see what prop bets are available for your favorite NFL football game.

Thursday Night Football Betting Tips
Before placing any bet on the NFL, here are a few tips and tricks you should be using to help maximize your chances of winning.
Follow Injury Reports
Injury reports are vital during short weeks. Keep track of which players practiced in the days leading to the game and which ones might be out or be playing at less than 100 percent. Injuries can shift betting lines, so follow the injury report throughout the week.
Bet Primetime Players Instead Of Teams
There are a handful of players that perform better (or worse) in primetime than others. Teams can tend to be a bit inconsistent in this area. But some players, especially quarterbacks, tend to be more consistent under the lights. Before you place a bet, see how the star quarterback for each team performs in primetime.
Pay Attention to Rest Advantages
One of the biggest disadvantages to Thursday night games is the short amount of rest. That can have a major impact on some teams. Be sure to see how much time between games each team has as the fresher team often wins a higher percentage of these primetime contests.
Shop Betting Lines
One of the best pieces of advice we can offer is to shop for the best lines. Online sportsbooks will often offer different lines and payouts, so take a few minutes before placing a bet to see which one makes the most sense for you.
If you are live betting an NFL game, you should actually watch the game. That way, you can get a sense of how the game is flowing and possible momentum shifts that can impact the odds.
Get Started Betting on TNF Games
Betting on Thursday Night Football can be a little less predictable than normal Sunday games because both teams usually have less rest. However, if you follow the tips and tricks listed above, you can enjoy these primetime games in the middle of the week. If you're ready to bet on Thursday Night Football in Arizona, review the legal operators, sign up, claim a promo, and get started. The whole process takes just 5 to 10 minutes.
