The 2017 NFL Season Betting Futures

With training camp and the preseason just weeks away, National Football League (NFL) fans and sports gamblers are busy preparing for yet another year of exciting action. No one is going to soon forget watching the New England Patriots stage one of the greatest comebacks in Super Bowl history last year to beat the NFC’s Atlanta Falcons 34-24 in overtime. Will either of those teams make it back to the big game for Super Bowl LII to be played in Minneapolis, Minnesota?

For anyone who already has an opinion, many of the world’s top online sports books have already posted future book odds. While the odds may vary slightly from on sports book to the next, here’s a look at the future odds board for the 2018 Super Bowl:

New England Patriots 17/5
Dallas Cowboys 10/1
Green Bay Packers 11/1
Seattle Seahawks 12/1
Atlanta Falcons 13/1
Oakland Raiders 14/1
Houston Texans 15/1
Pittsburgh Steelers 16/1
Denver Broncos 18/1
New York Giants 22/1
Kansas City Chiefs 25/1
Indianapolis Colts 30/1
Carolina Panthers 30/1
Minnesota Vikings 30/1
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 30/1
Arizona Cardinals 32/1
Baltimore Ravens 40/1
Philadelphia Eagles 50/1
New Orleans Saints 50/1
Tennessee Titans 50/1
Cincinnati Bengals 55/1
Miami Dolphins 60/1
Washington Redskins 60/1
Detroit Lions 70/1
Los Angeles Chargers 80/1
Buffalo Bills 90/1
Jacksonville Jaguars 90/1
Chicago Bears 125/1
New York Jets 150/1
Los Angeles Rams 150/1
San Francisco 49ers 300/1
Cleveland Browns 300/1

A quick look at the board indicates bettors believe the Patriots and future Hall of Fame QB Tom Brady have at least one more championship run left in them. For anyone with a differing option, the potential reward could be quite significant. Let’s take a look at two teams that represent great value going into the 2017 season.

Dallas Cowboys (10-1) – After cruising through the regular season with a record of 13-3, the Cowboys ran into a red hot Green Bay Packers team and lost in the conference semifinals 34-31. After going 4-12 the prior season, the Cowboys had just completed one of the greatest turnarounds in sports history. With rookies Ezekiel Elliot (RB) and Dak Prescott (QB) having a year of experience under their belts, the Cowboys will be looking to take another step forward. At 10-1, there’s real value in the number.

Pittsburgh Steelers (16-1) – During a season that saw QB Ben Roethlisberger struggle with injuries while All-Pro running back Le’Veon Bell served a 4-game suspension, the Steelers still went 11-5, only to lose to the eventual Super Bowl Champion Patriots in the AFC Championship game. The pieces are still in place and the Steelers still play in one of the weakest divisions. If Roethlisberger can avoid injury and the defense plays just a little better, it may be enough to stamp a ticket to Minneapolis. This is one of the best offenses in football. The gap between the Steelers and the Pats is a lot less that 16-1 versus 17-5. That’s real wagering value.
