Here, we’ll take a closer look at the best apps for NFL wagering, highlighting how each can be a great resource for getting your Super Bowl selections right.
NFL MOBILE - THE OFFICIAL NFL APP
The live streaming service, unfortunately, is reserved for Verizon customers only and comes at a cost of $5 per month for live video access to premium games. Users of this app can also subscribe to team-based push notifications, which filter through vital information such as injury updates and all the latest team news, a crucial service for bettors leading into this year’s Super Bowl.

SPORTS INSIGHTS - TIPS, ODDS, LINE MOVEMENTS
The app, available across both iOS and Android mobile devices, is fully customizable, allowing users to choose what information they see and how they see it. The push notification feature is particularly impressive, offering NFL bettors score and odds alerts, as well as breaking news relevant to Super Bowl LI. In spite of the copious amount of data it computes, the Sports Inisghts mobile app is high-performing, fast and easy to use.

BAIT (iOS EXCLUSIVE) - WAGER AGAINST YOUR FRIENDS
The methodology very much resembles a betting exchange such as Betfair, only that Bait pairs up bettors who know each other and can make contact during the course of the bet through the app’s ‘Smack Talk’ feature. This makes for a fun, social and engaging mobile betting experience that is perfect for a major sporting event such as the Super Bowl. Once a match is completed, users are notified and the losing bettor is asked to settle up through Venmo, the mobile payment subsidiary of PayPal. Interestingly, payments are not obligatory, yet they are tracked by the app to measure whether users pay up – those that do not receive a poor rating and risk being shunned by friends on future bets.

FANCRED - PERISCOPE FOR SPORTS FANS
Just like other social media accounts, users can like, comment and repost all the material that pops up in their news feed. This includes the recently added live streaming feature that, similar to streaming apps such as Periscope, lets users live stream video from any stadium in the world. In terms of the app’s value for mobile betting purposes, features such as live scores and match previews allow bettors to stay on top of all the major happenings leading into and during the games they follow. The fact that all information in the news feed is tailored to a user’s preferences is also a big advantage when focusing on individual matches such as the Super Bowl.

DRAFTKINGS - SUPER BOWL FANTASY APP
Importantly, the Super Bowl offering on Draft Kings is tied in with the recently played Pro Bowl, otherwise known as the NFL’s All Star match. Customers were required to play a two-game slate to earn cash prizes, meaning they had to incorporate players partaking in both the Pro Bowl and Super Bowl into their line-ups. The reasoning for this is legal, with US government regulations requiring that at least two games are featured in order for a paid fantasy sports contest to be deemed legal. A high-performing and high-rating app complements the DraftKings desktop site, and is available to both iOS and Android users across Apple’s official App Store and Google Play respectively.
