BET ON THE NFL

Super Bowl Odds Tracker

The first half of the NFL season is nearly complete and it’s time to take stock in what has been a wild season thus far. The NFL has been marked by Hollywood-esque personnel stories; from the Antonio Brown saga to injuries to Drew Brees and Patrick Mahomes, football has steadily held the attention of fans and bettors alike. And then there’s the New England Patriots. They’ve proven to be more than just an excellent football team – they’re a model for success as a franchise in the NFL. While they don’t have the elite offensive weapons that other teams possess, they’ve opted to build their club around a No. 1-ranked defense and the time-tested synergy of Brady and Belichick. It’s not the Patriots team that we were expecting, but here they are at 7-0 entering Week 8.

If you’re looking to increase your chances of making some dough at the mid-point of the NFL season, read on as we break down the major storylines of teams that hold top-5 Super Bowl LIV betting odds and provide you with some betting insight with some Super Bowl 2020 betting tips.

New England Patriots +240 Super Bowl Odds

The New England Patriots have been nothing short of the NFL’s most dominant team this season. Through seven weeks of play, they’ve allowed an average of 6.9 points per game - let that sink in for a second. The Pats may still be undefeated if they had the worst offense in the league, but they don’t. Instead, they have future Hall of Famer Tom Brady calling the shots with Bill Belichick in his ear. 

Acknowledging that they lack some offensive might, New England went out and traded for WR Mohamed Sanu this week. While Sanu isn’t a first-string receiver, he’ll be a nice compliment to Julian Edelman and supply Brady with another target. Following that move, the Pats are now landslide favourites on the Super Bowl 2020 betting odds at +240.  

New Orleans Saints +550 Super Bowl Odds

Despite losing QB Drew Brees in Week 2 to a torn ligament in his thumb, the Saints have gone undefeated during his absence. It’s clear that the Saints have missed Brees, as they rank in the middle of the pack in most offensive categories, but their defense has stepped up in a big way since the QB’s injury, allowing just 18.4 points per game over that period. 

With Brees set to return in Week 8, the Saints are going to get a huge boost. What is arguably the NFL’s most complete team is going to be even better in the second half, and any Super Bowl 54 betting tips guide will tell you that the Saints are the Patriots’ greatest competition for the championship.

Green Bay Packers +900 Super Bowl Odds

As expected, the Green Bay Packers live and die by Aaron Rodgers. Luckily for the Pack, Rodgers has returned to MVP form this season. The two-time MVP ranks in the top-5 in passing yards (2,019) and TDs (13), and sixth in passer rating (103.7). It seems as though the play calling of first-year head coach Matt LaFleur has been good for Rodgers, and so has a drastically improved offensive line. The Pack also rank ninth in team defense, allowing just 19.9 points per game, and are +6 in turnover differential. Green Bay has come a long way since last year (6-9-1), and it seems as though they’re getting stronger as the season progresses. As long as Rodgers stays healthy, Green Bay will be a Super Bowl contender worthy of betting consideration. 

Kansas City Chiefs +950 Super Bowl Odds

No one questions the prowess of the Kansas City Chiefs’ offense when defending MVP Patrick Mahomes is at the helm. The 24-year-old ranks first in passing yards (2,180) and is in a three-way tie for TDs (15). He’s also tied for the fewest interceptions among starters (1) and is third in passer rating (113.1). However, the Chiefs’ Super Bowl aspirations received a shock when the QB needed to be helped off of the field following a knee injury in Week 7. X-Ray results suggest that Mahomes won’t miss significant time, but his injury brings to light how vulnerable KC is without their MVP in the lineup. The Chiefs will need a healthy Mahomes as well as improved defensive performance (13th in the league) if they hope to challenge for the Vince Lombardi Trophy this year.

San Francisco 49ers +1000 Super Bowl Odds

The only other undefeated team in the NFL is the surprising San Francisco 49ers. San Fran was not on the radar at the start of the season, but a stingy defensive core (10.7 points per game against) and adequate play from starter Jimmy Garoppolo has caused the betting world to take notice. The 49ers also added WR Emmanuel Sanders via trade this week and the two-time Pro Bowler will likely slot in as WR1 as San Fran prepares for a deep playoff run.

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:

 

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.
