Super Bowl Betting 

The calendar turning the 2021 means that Super Bowl odds are at the top of sports bettors’ minds. While many teams are worth consideration, football fans need not look past the Kansas City Chiefs and Green Bay Packers for solid betting options. Their respective quarterbacks, Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers, are in a battle for this year’s MVP award and are virtual locks for homefield advantage throughout the playoffs. 

But Super Bowl betting tips often advise looking beyond the top favourites on the  NFL betting lines for greater value. There, you’ll find excellent options, such as the emergent Buffalo Bills and perennial contender New Orleans Saints. We’re showcasing the top five teams in preparation for the playoffs.

NFL Odds to Win the Super Bowl

Any of the following five teams, which top the NFL lines on the futures market, would be solid picks for your Super Bowl LV betting slip. 

Kansas City Chiefs +190 NFL Odds

The Kansas City Chiefs’ (14-2 SU, 7-9 ATS) second-ranked offense (30.1 PTS/G) and top-ranked passing attack (309.1 YDS/G) has benefited from a breakout campaign from Pro Bowl tight end Travis Kelce, who ranks second in the league in receiving yards (1,416 YDS/G). Perhaps the most encouraging aspect of this year’s Chiefs squad is the improvements on the defensive side of the ball, where they rank fifth in defensive takeaways. With the potency of the Chiefs’ offense combined with their sixth-ranked defense (21.5 PTS/G), the Chiefs are well positioned to become the eighth team to repeat as Super Bowl champions.

Green Bay Packers +450 NFL Odds

The Green Bay Packers (13-3 SU, 10-6 ATS) have relied on stand-out performances from key offensive players all season and that’s secured them the No. 1 seed (and home field advantage) in the NFC. The chemistry between Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams has led to the wideout ranking fourth overall in receiving yards; he and Rodgers both have the most touchdowns of any quarterback-wide receiver combo in the league. However, Green Bay’s offense was dealt a blow this week when Pro Bowl left tackle David Bakhtiari went down with a knee injury in practice. That hit to the offensive line is sure to affect Rodgers’ protection and RB Adam Jones’ running room.

Buffalo Bills +650 NFL Odds

Buffalo Bills’ QB Josh Allen has broken out in a big way this season. With the third-most passing yards and third-best QBR, Allen has led the Bills (13-3 SU, 11-5 ATS) to the franchise’s best regular season record in 27 years. WR Stefon Diggs posted a career year in his first in Buffalo and led the NFL in receiving yards as Allen’s No. 1 target. Following their Week 17 victory over the Miami Dolphins, the Bills will host the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Wild Card. With six straight victories to close out the season, and the dynamic duo of Allen and Diggs playing as well as any other QB-WR combo in the league right now, expect to see the Bills up against the Chiefs in the AFC Conference Championship game.

New Orleans Saints +800 NFL Odds

The Saints (12-4 SU, 9-7 ATS) enter the postseason as the No. 2 seed in the NFC and are expected to have their full arsenal of weapons available against the Chicago Bears for the Wild Card game. QB Drew Brees appears to be fully recovered from the broken ribs he suffered in November, as the veteran threw for 3 TDs in Week 17. WR Michael Thomas has been hampered by an ankle injury through much of 2020, but was put on IR for the last three weeks of the regular season to help him heal for the opening game of the postseason. The other key component of New Orleans’ offensive attack is RB Alvin Kamara. The versatile back missed the final game of the season after testing positive for COVID-19, but with their Wild Card game scheduled for Sunday, it’s likely that he’ll be ready to suit up versus the Bears. 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers +1000 NFL Odds

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (11-5 SU, 9-7 ATS) finished strong with a 44-27 victory over the Atlanta Falcons and slid past the Pittsburgh Steelers on the NFL Vegas odds board. They lucked out with their Wild Card matchup that pits them against 7-9 Washington, but once again, they’ll be without LB Devin White, who’s still on the COVID-19 reserve. As long as the offensive line can continue to protect QB Tom Brady, who’s been sacked just 21 times this season, the Bucs could make their first deep run since going all the way in 2002.

How to Bet on the Super Bowl

 

NFL Point Spread Betting
NFL Moneyline Betting
NFL Totals Betting
NFL Prop Betting
NFL Parlay Betting
NFL Futures Betting
NFL Teaser Betting
NFL Buying Points
NFL Round Robin Betting

 

 

Super Bowl Point Spread Betting

 

In most games, there’s one team that has greater odds of winning: the favourite. In order to even the playing field between the favourite and the underdog, point spreads establish a margin of victory that the favourite must win by. The underdog can lose by this spread and still win the bet. In the event of a 3.5-point spread, the favourite must win by at least 4 points to cover the spread, and the underdog can lose by 3 or fewer points and still pay its backers.

Super Bowl Moneyline Betting

 

The moneyline lets you simply pick the winner of a game, with no spread attached. The odds attached to each team are the odds you’ll be paid out with if your team wins.

Super Bowl Totals Betting

 

Instead of predicting the game winner, like you’d do on the moneyline and spread, totals betting lets you bet on how offensive or defensive a game will be. Pre-game, oddsmakers pick a total number of points to be scored between both teams; you guess if the actual number of points will go over or under that number.

Super Bowl Prop Betting

 

Another way to bet on NFL beyond picking the winning team of a game is through prop betting. Proposed by oddsmakers, props are side bets that enrich the betting experience. These bets could be based on something that happens throughout the entire season, like whether or not a team will make the playoffs. They can also be based on individual player stats, like will a star quarterback break passing records this season or whether or not he'll throw for at least one touchdown in a game. When the Super Bowl approaches, the props market explodes with options, so be sure to keep an eye on it to scoop up some value bets.

NFL Parlay Betting

 

There are two types of people in NFL wagering: those who prefer the safety of making individual bets, and those who like to link bets together for a chance to win a massive payout. People in the latter group look to parlays for their bets. A parlay lets you link together up to 12 different lines. They have to all come through for you to win the monster payout in the end.

Super Bowl Futures Betting

 

Delayed gratification certainly pays out in the NFL betting world. Trying to predict a long-term outcome in the futures market, like which team will win the Super Bowl, requires patience, but there’s a lot more value than if you try to pick the winner the day of The Big Game.

Super Bowl Teaser Betting

 

If you like the idea of parlaying lines together, but want the comfort of reduced risk, teasers are for you. This “add on” feature lets you shift the point spread in your favour by 6, 6.5 or 7 points. For example, a 7-point teaser applied to a line where the New England Patriots are 12-point favourites on the spread would make them 5-point favourites, which is much more attainable.  Just keep in mind, in addition to reducing the risk, it also reduces the payout.

Buying Points on the Super Bowl

 

Like teasers, buying points reduces risk by shifting the spread in your favour. But instead of systematically shifting all the lines in a parlay by 6 to 7 points, you are buying a half-point at a time on individual bets. You could take the Atlanta Falcons for —7.5 on the spread, and change it to—7 by buying a half-point.

NFL Round Robin Betting

 

Round robin betting covers all possible outcomes for the lines you want to bet by breaking them into parlays. For example, if you want to include the following three lines on your bet slip: Atlanta Falcons —7, Seattle Seahawks —3, and Cincinnati Bengals —6, you can improve your chances of success by using a round robin. This popular bet breaks the lines into three two-team parlays:

TEAM SPREAD
Atlanta Falcons -7
Seattle Seahawks -3

 

 

Atlanta Falcons -7
Cincinnati Bengals -6

 

Seattle Seahawks -3
Cincinnati Bengals -6

 

With this round robin, hitting just one winning parlay would almost make your money back.
