2020 NFL Season Update

The NFL season is in full swing. As we enter Week 5, several franchises are attempting to solidify their position as favourites on the Super Bowl odds board. Sitting at the top of that group are the Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs, who are co-favourites at +450 on the NFL betting lines. We’ll break down the top six contenders (plus ties) to give you the betting edge you’ll need for Super Bowl LV.

NFL Odds to Win the Super Bowl

Baltimore Ravens +450 NFL Odds

A perfect 2-0 straight up and on the NFL lines, the Baltimore Ravens are arguably the most complete team in the NFL. With last year’s MVP Lamar Jackson at the helm and the ability to beat opponents on the ground and in the air, the Ravens’ offense is sure to be among the league leaders again this season. But perhaps more impressively, Baltimore’s defense has looked like a steel curtain through the first two weeks, surrendering just 11 points per game.

Kansas City Chiefs +450 NFL Odds

The biggest question entering this season for the Kansas City Chiefs was how their defense would perform after a major overhaul, and unfortunately for them, their defense has not gotten off to the start they wanted. If they can’t round into form, the weight will once again fall on the shoulders of Patrick Mahomes.

Seattle Seahawks +850 NFL Odds

After two dominant performances, Russell Wilson has catapulted to the front of the MVP race. A good portion of Wilson’s statistical output has come from two stellar games from WR DK Metcalf. If those two can maintain their chemistry this season, the Seahawks will have a banner year and could move further up the NFL Vegas odds.

New Orleans Saints +1100 NFL Odds

There are some questions around the New Orleans Saints early in 2020. Drew Brees has struggled out of the gate and experts are questioning whether the all-time TD leader is over the hill. We may see a traditionally pass-oriented Saints club begin to turn to Alvin Kamara and the run as the season progresses.

Dallas Cowboys +1600 NFL Odds

In a contract year, Dak Prescott is making a case to become the highest-paid QB in the league. However, the health of the Cowboys’ defense remains a concern, so we should look for Jerry Jones to make a splash to bolster his defensive core.

Green Bay Packers +1600 NFL Odds

While it’s still Early, Aaron Rodgers is pacing all other quarterbacks in QBR (90.9) and RB Aaron Jones is leading the league in rushing yards (234 yards). With two wins over divisional rivals in the pocket, the Packers are in good shape for a playoff berth.

San Francisco 49ers +1600 NFL Odds

It appears as though the 49ers may be going through a Super Bowl hangover. Injuries on the offensive and defensive side of the ball have contributed to a poor season start. Getting healthy will be critical if the 49ers expect another shot at the Vince Lombardi in 2021.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers +1600 NFL Odds

The jury is still out on the Tom Brady experiment in Tampa Bay. Surrounded by talent, Brady should be able to find a way to get Tampa Bay the wins needed to have a chance at a Super Bowl appearance. Given that the game will be in their home stadium, you can bet that the Buc’s brass won’t sit by and watch this opportunity slip away.

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.
