A football oblique shape alllows it to spin through the air, the quarterback puts a spin on the ball with his fingers when he throws it. The best spirals are tightly spinning and take much experince to master

Because it allows the ball to be aerodynamic, and this lets it fly through the air more easily (less wind resistance and friction), and to fly farther.
