Chiefs and Ravens Super Bowl odds dive before NFL Season start
Some teams won’t play in front of fans. So far, that hasn’t affected the odds that much. What has is past history.
Last season, the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl with Patrick Mahomes at quarterback. The Baltimore Ravens secured home field advantage with Lamar Jackson at quarterback. It makes sense that the Chiefs and Ravens would go off the two chalks to win the 2021 Super Bowl.
What also makes sense is why Kansas City’s odds dipped to +515 after hovering around +600 to +650 during the entire offseason. The Chiefs are a known commodity. If any squad can weather a coronavirus affected season, it’s the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Baltimore Ravens are also a known commodity. In addition, it’s apparent that the two best quarterbacks in the NFL play for the Chiefs and Ravens. So, future bettors feel safer in the NFL Covid-19 Season going with the Ravens or Chiefs than any other squad.
NFL Championship odds on Patriots rise significantly
Right after the Patriots signed 2015 NFL MVP Cam Newton, odds on New England dropped from +2500 to +1200. The glass half full bettors jumped on the Pats because the belief is that if anybody can help a quarterback rediscover their past glory, it’s Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.
On the eve of the 2020 NFL Season, the glass half empty bettors have spoken. The odds on the Patriots have risen from +1200 back to the original +2500. The reason? Although Cam looks good, the Patriots have yet to play a real game.
Heck, New England, like every team because of the pandemic, didn’t play in a preseason. Also, at Seattle and at Kansas City are on the schedule before New England’s Week 6 bye. That forces the Patriots to beat the Dolphins in Week 1, the Raiders in Week 3, and the Broncos in Week 5 to get to 3-2 before their bye.
After the bye, the Pats take on San Francisco, are at Buffalo, and battle the Baltimore Ravens in 3 of their next 4 games. That’s a tough schedule for a team that must replace the greatest signal-caller of all time.
Never too early, or late, to get down on Super Bowl Futures
Odds could change dramatically. Determining the optimal time to wager on the team you like to win the Vince Lombardi Trophy depends on what you believe happens in Week 1.
If you like the Chiefs, and you have no doubt they blow out the Texans on Thursday, consider backing Kansas City at +515. If Patrick Mahomes and KC dominates Deshaun Watson and Houston, their odds could drop to under +500.
Use common sense to determine if you should wager on the Super Bowl team of your choice before NFL Week 1 kicks off on Sep. 10.
Have a great rest of your week!
