Super Bowl Betting Update

After holding on to their pole position on the Super Bowl odds board since the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the Super Bowl, the Kansas City Chiefs have officially tumbled down to third-favourites where they sit at +750. The new second-favourite team is the Bills, who beat Kansas City 38-20 as 3-point underdogs in Week 5. Behind Kansas City on the board are the Los Angeles Rams, who have just one loss on the season that took place in Week 4 against the undefeated Arizona Cardinals. Kyler Murray and the Cardinals have seen their own odds improve to +1200 to make it on to this list of top six teams on the Super Bowl odds board. 

2021-22 Super Bowl Odds

One team that has been steady throughout the season are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who’ve reached a new level of confidence with Year 2 under QB Tom Brady. 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers +500 Super Bowl Odds 

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-1 SU, 2-3 ATS) have looked dominant up to this point of the season, minus a couple of close calls that required field goals in the dying minutes. QB Tom Brady has been outclassing the rest of the league with his arm, leading the way in passing yards (1,767) through five games. At press, he is dealing with a thumb injury incurred against the Dolphins on Sunday and has been a limited participant in practices. He expects to be able to suit up with no lingering problems for the Bucs’ Week 6 matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles.

That’s not the only injury that the Bucs are facing. WR Chris Godwin and C Ryan Jensen were also limited participants in practice, and TE Rob Gronkowski is still sidelined from a rib injury sustained in Week 3. The defensive unit has their fair share of injuries and are down two starting linebackers in Jason Pierre-Paul and Lavonte David.

Buffalo Bills +550 Super Bowl Odds

Questions about the Bills’ (4-1 SU and ATS) soft schedule were answered when they upset the odds in Week 5, taking down the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium as 3-point underdogs. They currently have the No. 1 offense and defense in the league, which contributes to their impressive +108 point differential (the second-highest point differential belongs to the Cardinals at +62). QB Josh Allen has been spreading the ball to four different receivers and has been relying on his own legs, in addition to Devin Singletary’s, to work the ground game. Allen is leading the MVP race at +450. 

The Bills have experienced good health up to this point in the season, and as we enter Week 6, LB Matt Milano is the only questionable starter for Buffalo. However, Milano is expected to return for the Bills’ Monday nighter against the Tennessee Titans.

Kansas City Chiefs +750 Super Bowl Odds

The Kansas City Chiefs (2-3 SU, 1-4 ATS) can’t blame poor health on their 2021-22 struggles. Along with Washington, they’ve been the least injured team this season. QB Patrick Mahomes has been holding up his end of the bargain; he leads the league in touchdowns (16) and QBR (75.0), while WR Tyreek Hill has tallied a fourth-best 516 receiving yards. But Mahomes can only do so much with a porous defense that is allowing the most points of any team in the league (32.6 PPG). 

Ranking fourth-last in run and pass defense and last in sacks, something’s got to give with Kansas City’s defensive. In Week 5, they made life easy for Allen and the Bills’ offense, who managed an average of 12 yards per play. Safety Daniel Sorensen has struggled mightily and was responsible for two Bills touchdowns, drawing the ire of KC fans.

Los Angeles Rams +800 Super Bowl Odds

The Los Angeles Rams (4-1 SU, 3-2 ATS) have soared with QB Matthew Stafford up front. After making his way over from the Detroit Lions, he is averaging 9.2 yards per throw and has racked up 12 touchdowns in five weeks of play. The Rams looked invincible in the first three weeks of action that culminated in a 34-24 victory against the defending champs in Week 3. In that game, Stafford outplayed Brady, tossing for four touchdowns on just 343 yards.

With the exception of blitzes and pass pressure, the Rams’ defense isn’t quite what it was last season. They were left exposed in Week 4 when the Cardinals lit them up for 465 total yards in the Rams’ only loss this season.   

Green Bay Packers +1000 Super Bowl Odds

As usual, the Packers (4-1 SU and ATS) have been heavily reliant on QB Aaron Rodgers this season to earn them wins in tight spots when their defense has been mediocre at best (24.4 points per game allowed). In order to beat the Bengals in Week 5, Rodgers followed the simple pass and repeat formula with Davante Adams as his primary target. Adams caught the ball 11 times for 206 yards and one touchdown. Although it proved successful against the Bengals, the Packers will need other players to step up and make room for a little creativity if they hope to make a push deep into the postseason.

Arizona Cardinals +1200

The Cardinals (5-0 SU, 4-1 ATS) are having the best season start since 2012 when they started 4-0 and then tumbled to 5-11. That kind of result is highly unlikely with QB Kyler Murray running the show. With a proven ability to escape the pocket, Murray is arguably the sharpest shooter in the league, with a league-leading 75.2% completion rate. He seems to have sorted out the interceptions that plagued him earlier on this season and is still running a productive offense that’s scoring an average of 31.4 points per game. Pick him up at +500 on the MVP board if you think he’ll continue on this upward trajectory.

Unfortunately for the Cardinals, three starters are dealing with injuries or illness at the moment, including LB Chandler Jones (Covid-19), CB Byron Murphy, who missed Week 5 with a rib injury, and star centre Rodney Hudson, who left last Sunday’s game with a rib injury.

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.

 

Learn more about NFL Moneyline Betting.

 

 

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.
