Super Bowl Odds
Tracking The Super Bowl 56 Betting Odds
They’ll still be cleaning up confetti in Tampa Bay for the next few weeks and it might take a while for Tom Brady’s championship parade day hangover to subside, but it is never too early to look ahead to the odds for the next Super Bowl champion. Super Bowl LVI will be held at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, which is the home of both the Los Angeles Chargers and the Los Angeles Rams. Could we have back-to-back Super Bowls with a true home team?
As unlikely as that may seem, the Rams are +2000 with Matthew Stafford now at the helm and the Chargers are +3000 with what looks like a generational type starting quarterback in youngster Justin Herbert. Those two teams might not be bad investments as you start organizing your thoughts for the upcoming football season.
A lot of moving parts and moving players still have to be figured out, as the league should have COVID-19 concerns well in the past by the time training camp starts, but attendance will still be up for debate and we still have the NFL Draft and Free Agency yet to come.
The Kansas City Chiefs are the rightful favorites at +600 with back-to-back Super Bowl appearances. Are the Green Bay Packers the right team as the second choice? Reigning regular season MVP Aaron Rodgers will be back for another go, but will the Packers give him some help, particularly on the offensive line? Green Bay is +900 and the favorite in the NFC.
The Baltimore Ravens and Buffalo Bills are being given the best chances of slaying the mighty Chiefs with prices of +1200. Could it be the upstart Cleveland Browns at +2500 that do the deed? They had a chance to knock off the Chiefs in the Divisional Round game last postseason, but fell short. The Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins, and Tennessee Titans also find themselves at +2500.
The NFC looks to be a lot more wide open. The Packers are at 9/1, but the reigning champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers are +1200 and Brady says he’ll be back for another run. What will happen with the San Francisco 49ers at +1400? Will they find the right quarterback to pair with Kyle Shanahan and the elite defense that helped them to an appearance in Super Bowl LIV?
What about the New Orleans Saints, who are passing the torch from Drew Brees to somebody else at +1800? Will Russell Wilson get the offensive help he is practically begging for from the Seattle Seahawks?
There are a lot of questions around the league as the offseason process gets underway and you’ll want to follow along with the Super Bowl odds as news breaks to see how the outlooks for these teams change in a betting context.
ATS NFL Odds Explanation: Understanding Odds to Win the Super Bowl
Betting on the Super Bowl winner means betting on the team that will win the Lombardi Trophy and be crowned the champion in the month of February.
No matter how long the odds seem, all 32 teams are going to be listed with a chance to win the Super Bowl until they are mathematically eliminated. As you can see, our odds at ATS list the teams in alphabetical order.
The teams that had the most success the previous season, unless they experienced a lot of losses in the offseason, are going to be among the favorites. Super Bowl odds are up for the entire NFL season and will constantly be changing based on transactions, injuries, and, of course, wins and losses. As the playoff picture takes shape, the teams with an inside track on playoff berths are going to see their plus prices get smaller.
Any championship bet in any sport is a futures bet. That means that you can place the bet at any time and the sportsbook will hold your money until the outcome is decided. If you pick the correct team to win the Super Bowl, your winnings will be available. If you did not pick the winner, then your bet will be graded a loser and no longer show as pending.
The beauty of our odds page here at ATS is that you can compare the Super Bowl odds across multiple sportsbooks in the industry. You never want to settle for +2000 when you could have +2500 or +4000 when you could have +5000. By seeing all of them side-by-side, you can see exactly which sportsbook you want to use in order to place your bet.
For the most part, up until there is a Super Bowl line with a favorite and an underdog, these are going to be plus prices. If you turn the odds into a decimal, like turning +2800 into 28.00 or +750 into 7.5, you can calculate your potential payout very easily relative to your bet amount.
Whether you want to put a bet on your favorite team or you feel like you have a good idea of the team that will win it all, make sure you compare the odds at ATS before you put that bet in!
