2020 NFL Offseason Update

The NFL and Players Association have reached an agreement for starting training camp amidst the coronavirus pandemic, but not all players are on board. Green Bay’s thin receiving core was further weakened by Devin Funchess’ decision to opt out of the 2020 season after signing a one-year deal. And the leader on the NFL Vegas odds, the Kansas City Chiefs, have problems of their own after losing two key contributors from last year’s Super Bowl team. Despite the opt-outs having a big impact on rosters across the league, there’s been little movement on the NFL betting lines for the following top-six NFL teams.

NFL Odds to Win the Super Bowl

Kansas City Chiefs: +600 NFL Odds

After leading the Kansas City Chiefs in rushing last year, running back Damien Williams is among the biggest opt-outs in the league for the 2020 season. He scored two touchdowns in their Super Bowl victory over the 49ers to cap off a career year. Fortunately, the Chiefs used their first-round draft pick to snap up highly touted LSU RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire. The Chiefs still have pole position on the NFL lines.

Baltimore Ravens: +650 NFL Odds

The Baltimore Ravens haven’t been overly impacted by player opt-outs, with OT Andre Smith being the biggest loss so far for the team. Smith was going to provide depth to an otherwise veteran offensive line that will be responsible for protecting last year’s MVP, Lamar Jackson.

San Francisco 49ers: +900 NFL Odds

With no reported opt-outs at this time, we’re expecting to see close to the same 49ers roster from last year. The biggest change will be moving on without veteran left tackle Joe Staley, who retired at the end of the 2019-20 season. Pro Bowler Trent Williams was acquired to fill in for Staley.

New Orleans Saints: +900 NFL Odds

One of the other losses for the 49ers is the Saints’ gain; wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders signed a two-year contract with New Orleans this offseason. The double threat of Sanders and Michael Thomas will see QB Drew Brees likely put up another historic season and further pad his stats as the all-time passing yards leader. 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: +1000 NFL Odds

The Buccaneers continued to load up on offense this week when they signed veteran RB LeSean McCoy, who should slot in behind Ronald Jones II and will be a key outlet option in Brady’s passing game.

New England Patriots: +1200 NFL Odds

The Patriots took one step forward with the signing of Cam Newton and one step back with the loss of linebacker Dont’a Hightower, who opted out of the 2020 season due to Covid-19 concerns. Hightower had been the Pats’ primary defensive play caller, so he’ll leave a big hole on the defensive side of the ball.

2021 Super Bowl Underdog Odds

Tennessee Titans +3000

The Tennessee Titans were the story of the NFL in the second half of the regular season and through two rounds of the playoffs that included knocking off the NFL Vegas odds favourite, the Baltimore Ravens. A big part of the Titans’ run was the play of Ryan Tannehill. The QB is a free agent and there’s been no word out of Tennessee regarding their intention to extend an offer to the seven-year veteran. If he and RB Derrick Henry can revive the magic that got the Titans to the AFC Championship game in 2020, Tennessee may be a dark horse contender on the NFL betting lines.

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.
