How does my subscription work?
Once you sign up for a subscription, simply go to the NFL Picks page every Wednesday for the upcoming weeks’ picks. If your access is restricted then your subscription has most likely expired. If you have any issues, please go to the Contact Us page and let us know.
How do I access my picks?
To access your picks, just login to your account and click on the NFL Picks page. We post all of the current week’s picks to that page and archive all previous weeks.
What is a teaser bet?
A teaser bet is when you choose two games against the spread instead of a straight bet, for which you only choose one game. However, with a teaser bet you can add points to the lines of both games to give yourself an advantage. For instance, say the line of the Patriots game is -3 and the line of the 49ers game is +3. If you take a 7.5 point teaser, you can add 7.5 to both lines. Therefore you would now have the Patriots at +4.5 and the 49ers at +10.5. Both teams need to cover the new line in order to win the wager, but with extra points you give yourself a huge advantage!
How do I place a bet?
The Final Line is not a gambling website, and therefore you cannot place bets on our site. However, there are many online sportsbooks or in-person sportsbooks (Nevada only) where you can place bets. We recommend a few online sportsbooks that we’ve reviewed and see as great options in their flexibility, and if you’d like to review those you can see them here. There are also other online sportsbooks that you could search for on the web as well. If you are using our teaser picks each week (which you should use all of our picks!), make sure that your sportsbook allows you to add points ranging from 6 – 9.5 points, as some have limitations. It’s not a bad idea to have a couple different sportsbook options as the initial spread on a team can shift during the course of the week, and getting the best lines (preferably what we recommended) is always a smart, long-term strategy!
If you are placing bets in-person, make sure your local casino has a sportsbook. Currently in-person sportsbooks are only legal in Nevada in the US. This is however the fastest way to place a bet and receive your winnings!
How do I get free picks?
Getting free picks is quick and easy in 2017! All you have to do is sign up here or on the NFL picks tab. Once you’ve signed up you will get a welcome email that describes everything you need to know, along with our weekly newsletter.
How does your system work?
We have spends thousands of hours researching statistics, finding trends and building a system that can find a value advantage against the spread, similar to how a stock broker will see when to buy and sell a stock. Public perception along with other factors can sway the lines, which can find opportunities to pick “undervalued” teams. We’ve worked hard to do the grunt work for you, and all you have to do is sign up to get all of our picks and in-depth analysis!You can read more about how our system works on our System & Strategy page.

How many picks do I get a week?
The amount of picks can vary by week, depending on where we can find value at a given time in the season. However, we will always send at least 2 straight bets and 2 teaser picks for a given week. The range of total games usually fluctuates between 4-8 picks a week.
Why should we get picks from The Final Line?
The first reason in 2017 is very simple, ALL OF OUR PICKS ARE 100% FREE! As a token to our loyal customers and in an effort to show our new customers how much we can do for them, we wanted to thank you by giving it all away this season and prove we’re for real. Most handicappers will charge a steep price for their packages and we understand that our customers want to spend their money on the actual games and not just the information. That’s why we’re committed at The Final Line to always providing affordable insights so that our customers can be using their money towards more profitable avenues!
Our other goal was to make our website as user-friendly and straight-forward as possible, and we hope you have a positive experience! If there’s anything else we can do to improve your time visiting The Final Line please email our customer support line and we will respond swiftly!
