The NFL standings provide an at-a-glance overview of how individual teams rank within their division, conference, and in the league as a whole. The basics of the NFL standings are straightforward. They provide fans and sports bettors with each team’s win/loss record, and rank them accordingly.
Standings typically provide a breakdown of each team’s record at home and on the road, the total number of points they have scored, and the number of points they have allowed. The standings may also provide details of winning and losing streaks.
In addition to keeping track of how playoff races are going in each division and conference, the NFL standings provide sports bettors with a high-level snapshot of a team’s overall performance. While making betting decisions solely on the basis of a team’s position in the standings is very risky and typically not recommended, the information found in the standings provide a great starting point for looking for value in the gameday odds.
