2018-2019 NFL Betting Power Ranking: Return On Investment
by Doug Upstone Scores & Statson
The time is ticking down to the start of another fantastic NFL season and we cannot wait. Today, we have a look back in order on what teams were the best to worst in terms of return on investment and profit/loss from this past season when breaking the money lines and against the spread.
We also have a multi-faceted look at each team's latest futures numbers for Super Bowl LIV odds, SU and ATS records from last season and where they finished in our Power Ratings for the regular season in 2018. Plus, thoughts on each team for the upcoming season.
Futures Odds: +2800 Record: 10-7 SU and 10-5-2 ATS Last Year's Final Ranking: 5 Profit: $985.00 ROI: 28.1.%
Seattle got back to playing Pete Carroll football last year, running the ball and having Russell Wilson as a play-action passer. If that maintains and the defense improves, the Seahawks are at least a playoff contender.
Futures Odds: +6000 Record: 9-7 SU and 8-8 ATS Last Year's Final Ranking: 12 Profit: $475.00 ROI: 14.1%
Tennessee made a number of off-season moves all designed to make this a year to win the AFC South. However, will it all come together for the Titans and at this point who has much faith in Marcus Mariota?
Futures Odds: +1600 Record: 11-7 SU and 9-8-1 ATS Last Year's Final Ranking: 13 Profit: $578.00 ROI: 11.4%
If you are looking for a mid-priced play to win the AFC and or the Super Bowl, this could be the team. If the defense improves as expected, with Andrew Luck at the controls, Indianapolis is a top-notch outfit.
Futures Odds: +750 Record: 15-4 SU and 9-8-2 ATS Last Year's Final Ranking: 2 Profit: $230.00 ROI: 0.5%
With age in certain spots on the offensive line, this has to be the Rams year to win a Super Bowl. Todd Gurley is probably not going to be the same player he was which means Jared Goff has to step forward.
Futures Odds: +2000 Record: 9-6-1 SU and 8-7-1 ATS Last Year's Final Ranking: 11 Profit: -$112.00 ROI: -3.3%
Pittsburgh has woefully underachieved the last two years. With fewer divas and signings on defense, the Steelers should contend in the AFC, but a lot of pressure is on coach Mike Timlin to control his team.
Futures Odds: +12500 Record: 6-10 SU and 9-7 ATS Last Year's Final Ranking: 22 Profit: -$225.00 ROI: -6.3%
Finally, a new coaching staff in the Queen City! The problem for Cincinnati is they have depended on players who keep getting injured and until they bring in playmakers who can stay on the field, the Bengals are stuck.
Futures Odds: +5000 Record: 7-9 SU and 7-9 ATS Last Year's Final Ranking: 17 Profit: -$483.00 ROI: -12.4%
Pivotal year for Cam Newton and Carolina in determining if he is really their quarterback solution for the next five years or if it is time to make a change at the position and possibly the head coach.
Futures Odds: +8000 Record: 3-13 SU and 9-7 ATS Last Year's Final Ranking: 32 Profit: -$360.00 ROI: -16.2%
Optimism is high in the football desert for the future. Still, you have an unproven head coach who had modest success in college football and a quarterback, though very talented, has a learning curve on a bad team.
Futures Odds: +2800 Record: 8-7-1 SU and 8-7-1 ATS Last Year's Final Ranking: 10 Profit: -$714.00 ROI: -17.6%
It is now or never for Minnesota. Kirk Cousins showed why Washington was unwilling to give him a big contract and if the Vikings don't return to at least the NFC title game, you know who the fall guy will be.
Futures Odds: +8000 Record: 4-12 SU and 5-10-1 ATS Last Year's Final Ranking: 29 Profit: -$974.00 ROI: -23.5%
The Jets have themselves a quarterback and a few other pieces, but new coach Adam Gase has gone from the golden boy to thought of as overmatched at Miami. This year will be extremely important for Gase and Sam Darnold looking towards the future.
