Jump Down To: Current Super Bowl Odds
Perhaps the most popular wager made on the NFL today is when fan bet on the winner of the upcoming Super Bowl. This type of wager is known as a "futures" wager and Super Bowl betting lines are available just about year-round - they can even be formed the moment the previous Super Bowl goes final.
Often times, Super Bowl future odds are the only available wager on the NFL during the offseason, and remains relatively constant. However, betting on a team's odds to win the Super Bowl can also be made during the season but know that the odds will shift week to week based on NFL teams' past performances.
Here at NFLSeasonSchedules.com, we have the latest Super Bowl betting odds for the upcoming or current seasons available for you to review and place a wager on. We talk about odds and preview the divisions all season long in our blog plus other interesting topics.
The early Super Bowl line is usually provided by Bovada and only consists of future odds for about 50 weeks of the year - the only exception is the two weeks leading up to the big game when online betting sites typically release hundreds of Super Bowl props and alternate betting lines for the game.
The NFL season is in its final stretch as Super Bowl Sunday approaches, and the final two horses appear to be in a dead heat.
That’s according to the bookmakers for most legal betting sites anyway, who since the betting lines for the Super Bowl opened Sunday night have already backed off from setting the defending champion Seattle Seahawks as two-point favorites to putting the game at an even pick ‘em. In fact, the Patriots may end up with the advantage by the time toe meets leather in Glendale.
For now though, it's only fitting that these two teams enter the game at even odds considering what mirror images they have been of each other throughout the year.
Not only will the two no. 1 seeds play each other for only the fifth time in the last 25 years (and twice consecutively) but the Patriots and the Seahawks each share the NFL’s best record at 14-4 including the postseason.
While each team has been equally good at beating their opponents, Seattle has fared a little better against the spread. In their last seven postseason games, the Seahawks are 5-2 ATS as opposed the patriots who are 4-11 ATS in their last seven postseason games.
When it comes to Super Bowls, the difference is even more glaring. While the Seahawks are 1-1 ATS in previous Super Bowls even though they are 2-0 straight up.
The New England Patriots are 0-4 ATS in their last four appearances...all four times they've been favored to win.
If there’s good news for Patriots fans it’s that their teams puts its best foot forward when facing capable competition. New England is 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games against teams with winning records.
It’s tough to say what talk of these teams beating the spread really means in a game that is perceived as being so close, but it should mean we get a great game to watch and bet on come Super Bowl Sunday.
