Super Bowl Odds Update
Tampa Bay Buccaneers +700 - With Chris Godwin out for the year and Antonio Brown MIA, the Buccaneers’ depth will be tested in a way it never was during last year’s run to the championship. With Tom Brady leading the way, it’s inadvisable ever to count out this team, but unheralded players have to step up on both sides to fuel a repeat title.
Kansas City Chiefs +500 - The Chiefs’ loss to the Bengals puts them out of the #1 seed if the Titans beat the Texans on Sunday, but they will still be a top contender. Patrick Mahomes has boosted his play in recent weeks, but the defense has to bounce back from perhaps its worst performance of the year last week as the team was embarrassed by Ja’Marr Chase.
Green Bay Packers +400 - Aaron Rodgers is having another MVP-caliber season, and the Packers have already locked up the #1 seed in the NFC with a week to spare. Now, they essentially get two weeks off before their playoff run begins. The defense still has questions to answer, but Rodgers’s elite play is a huge differentiator in a wide-open NFC field.
New England Patriots +1800 - The presence of Bill Belichick will always make the Patriots a threat to make a deep run, but Mac Jones has been inconsistent week-to-week, and it may be too much to ask for him to lead this team far in the playoffs as a Wild Card. The Patriots are not a team to take lightly with a top-notch defense, elite offensive line, and superior coaching.
Buffalo Bills +800 -A win this week clinches the AFC East for the Bills, and while Josh Allen is coming off perhaps his worst passing game of the season, the emergence of Devin Singletary as a reliable rushing threat has been massive for the offense. The loss of Tre’Davious White still hangs over the team, but this could be the year Allen breaks through in a big way in the playoffs..
Arizona Cardinals +1800- The return of DeAndre Hopkins looms large as Kyler Murray isn’t the same quarterback without his top wideout. However, I’ve been very impressed with the Arizona defense, and I believe Vance Joseph may be the best defensive coordinator in the NFL. Kliff Kingsbury can silence his doubters with a long run in these playoffs, and I’m looking forward to watching Murray in the postseason.
Los Angeles Rams +900 - Matthew Stafford’s erratic play has been a problem lately, and the Rams have been winning in spite of their veteran quarterback. That won’t work in the playoffs, but the positive side is that the Rams have improved considerably on defense. The emergence of Sony Michel and the potential return of Cam Akers gives them a physical running presence, as well.
Dallas Cowboys +1200 - A home loss to the Cardinals wasn’t the best way to follow up their thrashing of Washington a couple of weeks ago, but the Cowboys still have the juice to make a long postseason run. However, the ground game has to get better to help Dak Prescott, and there are lingering questions of how good the Dallas defense is when they aren’t getting takeaways.
Cincinnati Bengals +2000 - With Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase leading the way, the Bengals are set to be a contender in the AFC for many years to come. In a wide-open race in the conference, the Bengals are arguably the best value play to win the Super Bowl at around +2000. Zac Taylor is a top Coach of the Year candidate, and Cincy has talent all over the roster on both sides of the field.
Tennessee Titans +1200 - Mike Vrabel is the Coach of the Year frontrunner with the way he has put the Titans in pole position to be the #1 seed in the AFC despite all of the missing players this season. Derrick Henry’s possible return for the playoffs would be massive, and nobody will want to play this disciplined, physical team in January.
Indianapolis Colts +2000 - Jonathan Taylor’s fringe MVP candidacy likely ended with the loss to the Raiders last week, but the Colts are not a team to take lightly in the playoffs. With a healthy defense and offensive line, Indy is very tough in the trenches. The big question for this team will be whether or not Carson Wentz can play turnover-free, efficient football on the biggest stages..

Betting The Super Bowl Odds
Once the big day is settled and we have our matchup of two teams, you are going to see odds for the point spread, moneyline, and total. These are considered the standard for sports betting, and is what you are going to find first among sports betting pages. Now the point spread is going to be a number that looks like, -7 or +7. The team that is sitting with -7 means that they are a touchdown favorite and would need to win by seven or more points for the bet to be considered a win. Now, if they win by three, then the bet is considered a loss. For the team that is +7, a winning bet would be them either winning or losing by less than seven points. If they lose by three, that means they covered the spread, and it is considered a win. The moneyline is going to be a straight-up win or lose, where you are getting odds on the underdog team and the favorite. The total can be broken down to either a team total or overall game total, which you would be betting on the over or under.
You are also going to see player props once the teams have been finalized. You can find odds and bets on things like over/under 98.5 receiving yards for a specific player. For receivers, you can see total receptions and touchdowns, which have the option of an over/under bet. Running backs will have yardage, attempts, and touchdown props as well. Quarterbacks will have attempts, passing yards, touchdowns, completions, and interceptions thrown props tied to their name. Game props are going to be more general game events, and not player focused. You can bet on the first touchdown scorer, total touchdowns, longest touchdown, and other various game events. These are great ways for beginning betters to understand sports betting, and be able to simplify the research that goes into one player or event in comparison to a whole game. Now in most circumstances, you can’t parlay props within sportsbooks, unlike the other types of best. A parlay means you can stack bets on top of each other to increase your payout if both hit. Now, if you take the over on a game and the Chiefs winning by seven, the over has to hit in addition to the Chiefs winning by seven. If the Chiefs win by four and the over hits, then your parlay is a bust. Each bet is called a leg of a parlay bet.
Super Bowl odds before the teams have been finalized is going to be considered a futures bet, meaning you are betting into the future on an event to take place. The most common is simply the Super Bowl winner. You will see odds for each team listed to win the Super Bowl in order of the most likely to do so based on the odds of the sportsbook. You can bet on the Kansas City Chiefs winning the Super Bowl in April, where you are more likely to get better odds. Every week during the season, odds are going to change based on what is happening in the NFL season. They will be adjusted for teams playing well or teams playing poorly, and injuries can also drive odds in the wrong direction.
You are going to be able to get better value for your futures bet when you bet further out. The odds are going to look a lot different in the offseason compared to Week 12 when the Chiefs have lost two games and are currently the one seed. The odds will go more into their favor, and that means the bet won’t be as valuable because the sportsbooks have adjusted. Betting on future bets early is key to getting a healthy return on investment.
