Super Bowl Odds Update
Buffalo Bills: It’s rare to not see the defending champions open as Super Bowl favorites, but it makes sense for Buffalo to be priced here. The Bills’ defense, which was the NFL’s best during the regular season, will return All-Pro cornerback Tre’Davious White while further developing Gregory Rousseau, their first-round defensive end, as he enters his second season. Josh Allen will have to adjust to life without Brian Daboll, but his relationship with Ken Dorsey, new OC and former QBs coach will be a positive. The Bills have as much or more talent than anyone in the NFL and should be considered the team to beat in the AFC.
Kansas City Chiefs: The team that eliminated the Bills from the postseason this year, as long as the Chiefs have Patrick Mahomes at quarterback, will be in the top 3 for preseason Super Bowl odds every year. The Chiefs have about the same odds as the Bills on most sportsbooks, and if not for their bizarre second-half collapse against the Bengals, we may be talking about them as defending champions. Nonetheless, with something to prove this season and plenty of talent on both sides of the ball, the Chiefs will be a popular Super Bowl futures pick.
Los Angeles Rams: The defending champions enter this offseason with plenty of unknowns. After providing a massive boost to the Super Bowl campaign, Odell Beckham Jr. and Von Miller become free agents. Aaron Donald has discussed retirement, which would be huge as he’s the best defensive player in football. Even Sean McVay has contemplated his future in the NFL. With Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp playing better than any QB-WR combo in football, this team deserves to be considered the favorite in the NFC until further notice, but keep an eye on offseason news for this group.
San Francisco 49ers: This team is a great value pick at 14-1 odds as they were one win away from playing in the Super Bowl this year, and they have incredible talent on both sides with George Kittle, Deebo Samuel, Nick Bosa, and Fred Warner as the stand-outs. The Niners also have a clear path to boosting their upside depending on what they do at the quarterback position this offseason, as it’s clear Jimmy Garoppolo is not long for San Francisco. If they acquire a big-name veteran or if Trey Lance really hits the ground running, the Niners can easily become the team to beat in a weaker NFC.
Green Bay Packers: Aaron Rodgers continues to struggle to get it done in the playoffs, and now he might be gone from Green Bay. At the very least, the Packers will be integrating a new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Matt LaFleur is a solid head coach, but the playoff disappointments of the past two years can’t be overlooked. I’d wait to bet the Packers to win the Super Bowl until we know more about the respective situations of Rodgers and Davante Adams.
Dallas Cowboys: The Cowboys’ defense became a force this season with Micah Parsons playing outstanding ball as a rookie alongside DeMarcus Lawrence and Randy Gregory. Dan Quinn’s return will help the defense maintain a high level of play, but I have minimal confidence in Mike McCarthy after that penalty-laden fiasco against the 49ers. The Cowboys are as talented as any team in the NFC, particularly in the trenches, but they played soft in that playoff game, and I don’t trust them to elevate this year.
Cincinnati Bengals: It’s rare to have the defending AFC Champion be seventh in Super Bowl odds, but they have an uphill climb this year. The AFC North should be much-improved, with the Ravens and Browns having much better injury luck, especially if the Steelers pick up a proven QB. Cincinnati’s offensive line needs serious work this offseason if Joe Burrow is going to stay healthy long enough to win a Super Bowl for this team.
Los Angeles Chargers: Can Justin Herbert take the Year 3 leap and make the Chargers a serious contender? The AFC is loaded, especially if the Broncos land Aaron Rodgers, and Brandon Staley showed some warts as a head coach down the stretch. However, the Chargers’ roster has plenty of talent, and it’s time we see what Herbert is capable of on the playoff stage.
Baltimore Ravens: Injuries across the board on defense derailed this past season for the Ravens, and they still narrowly missed out on a playoff berth. Lamar Jackson, he’s much more capable as a passer than most gave him credit for this year with the Ravens having their worst run game since he was drafted. With Mike McDaniel taking over as coordinator, the defense should return to being among the league’s best, as well.
Denver Broncos: The Broncos likely wouldn’t have odds this short if there wasn’t the pervasive rumor that Aaron Rodgers might be joining his former offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, the team’s new head coach. If Denver does land Rodgers, they will shoot up this list quickly. This team has drafted quite well with an impressive young nucleus, but they haven’t had the coaching to execute on that talent. Hackett could be the guy to get Denver back into the playoffs for the first time since they won Super Bowl 50.

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.
