When you bet on NFL odds, you are likely considering the location of the game into your online sports betting strategy. And some NFL teams are better at their home venues than others. 

There are 30 NFL stadiums for the 32 NFL teams entering the 2022 season. Which stadiums are the biggest?

Twenty-eight of the venues are occupied by a single team, while two are occupied by two NFL teams; the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers are co-tenants of SoFi Stadium, and the New York Giants and New York Jets are co-tenants of MetLife Stadium.

What is the Largest NFL Stadium?

MetLife Stadium is the largest NFL stadium in the league, with a capacity of 82,500. Other stadiums, including AT&T Stadium, are expandable beyond this capacity but have a lower standard capacity. The giant venue is located five miles west of New York City serves as home to the Giants and Jets. With construction completed in 2010, it was the most expensive stadium ever built in the United States at $1.6 billion.

FedEx Field is home to the current Washington Commanders and their online betting faithful. It is considered the second-largest stadium based on a capacity of 82,000. From 2004 to 2010, it was the largest stadium in the country with a capacity of 91,000 but underwent a renovation in 2011-12, lowering that number.

SoFi Stadium and Allegiant Stadium are the two newest in the NFL, having opened in 2020. SoFi Stadium serves as home to the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers. Its base capacity is listed at 70,420 but is expandable to up to 100,240 for special events such as the Olympics, Super Bowl, or World Cup.

No other venue in the NFL can expand up to that size.

Let’s take a look at all of the NFL stadiums from smallest to largest based on capacity. All capacity numbers are based on base numbers and do not take into account expandable numbers. The cost of construction is based on the era in which it was built.
