The odds were first impacted by key free agent signings in early March. The next big impact was tied to the release of the official 2019 regular season scheduled followed closely by last month’s draft in Nashville. These same online books have recently updated their Super Bowl futures odds for all 32 teams based on the money coming in since the NFL Draft. Using the posted odds at MyBookie, there are a few teams on the list with quite a bit of value in their updated numbers.
Super Bowl LIV Betting Futures - The Top Favorites
Soon after the Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in last season’s Super Bowl, each team opened as favorites to once again win its conference title and meet in Super Bowl LIV. Flash forward to early May and New England remains the favorite to repeat as champs at +700 betting odds. The Patriots’ betting odds to win their fourth-straight AFC title have been set at +300.
Betting on this team is a logical move given the high level of success it has enjoyed under the guidance of Bill Belichick as head coach along with Tom Brady as the starting quarterback. Even as some of their top players move on to other teams or retire, the Patriots have the incredible ability to plug up the holes to remain the team to beat in the AFC.
The Rams have won the NFC West the past two seasons and they broke through last season with an NFC title run. Their odds to win another conference title are set at +350 as the top favorites and they are +750 second-favorites to win the Super Bowl this time around. Also posted on the NFL futures board are betting odds for the exact matchup in Super Bowl LIV and a Patriots vs. Rams rematch tops the list at +1700.
Los Angeles remains loaded on each side of the ball led by Jared Goff at quarterback and Aaron Donald on defense. Given just how competitive the NFC is as compared to the AFC, betting on the Rams to keep up their end of the bargain does not carry the same value as New England.
Super Bowl Betting Futures - The Top-Valued Contender
One of the most interesting contenders on the list is New Orleans Saints following a pair of devastating losses in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. Two years ago, they lost to Minnesota on the last play of the game. Last season, the Saints lost to the Rams in overtime in a game that was tainted by a no-call on an obvious pass interference on a pivotal offensive drive. It is safe to say that New Orleans will have a huge chip on its shoulder heading into this season.
The Saints are +400 second-favorites to get back to the Super Bowl from the NFC and their betting odds to win that game are +800 as third-favorites. With star power such as Drew Brees at quarterback, Alvin Kamara running the ball and Michael Thomas catching it, the added motivation to get back to the title game for the first time in 10 years adds some solid value to this team’s odds.
The Kansas City Chiefs came up short against New England in last year’s AFC title game and their odds to win the conference this season are set at +375 as second-favorites. Their odds to win the Super Bowl are the third-highest on the board along with New Orleans at +800.
The Chicago Bears, Los Angeles Chargers and highly touted Cleveland Browns are next on the list at +1400 to win Super Bowl LIV followed by the Philadelphia Eagles and Indianapolis Colts at +1600.
