NFL Super Bowl Odds: Current Betting Favorites & Updated Predictions
One of the great things about sports is we don’t waste any time moving on to the next season once a champion has been crowned. That couldn’t be more true for the NFL, which just ended yesterday with the Eagles upsetting the Patriots 41-33 in one of the more thrilling final games of the season in recent memory.
No disrespect to the Eagles, but our focus is now on the 2018 season and which team will claim Super Bowl LII in Atlanta next February. Despite just losing the biggest game of the year, the Patriots go into next season as the overwhelming favorite to win it all at +500.
It’s hard to argue with the books making New England the favorites, as they have made the Super Bowl in 3 of the last 4 seasons. However, they have never made it back after losing the previous year. After losing the first Super Bowl to the Giants back in 2008, they didn’t even make the playoffs the next season. They did go 12-4 and reach the AFC Championship Game after the second loss to the Giants in 2012, but lost 13-28 at home to the Ravens. Not to mention they are losing both their offensive and defensive coordinators to head coaching gigs, Gronk is flirting with retirement and the potential feud going on with Belichick and Kraft.
As for the defending champs, the Eagles are tied with the Packers for the second best odds to win it all at +900. That’s the only 3 teams that opened with odds of 10 to 1 or better. For those of you wondering, Philadelphia opened last year at +5000. There were 16 teams who opened with better odds. They were the biggest long-shot to win it all since the Patriots cashed at +6000 way back in 2002 (First title of the Brady/Belichick era). The previous four teams to win the title all had opening odds of 10 to 1 or better.
Not too far back you have the Vikings at +1200 and the Steelers at +1400. You then have the Saints, Falcons, Rams, Cowboys and 49ers all listed at +1800. Note that out of the 10 teams with the bets odds to win the title next year, 8 are from the NFC and only 6 teams can make the playoffs from one conference.
The next tier of teams starts with the Jaguars, Panthers, Seahawks and Texans all sitting at +2500. Kansas City is next up all alone at +2800. We have another small gap until we hit the Chargers, Raiders, Broncos and Colts at +3300. You then have the Ravens at +4000, followed by the Titans, Lions, Redskins, Cardinals, Bucs and Giants all at +5000.
The biggest thing to keep in mind is that these odds are based a lot on how a team just performed the past season and the reputation of the franchise. The makeup of every team is going to be drastically different before you know it with free agency, trades and the draft. That’s not to say the books won’t tip their hand on how they feel about certain teams. For instance, the 49ers just went 6-10, yet are tied for the 6th best odds of any team to win the title next year.

Super Bowl Betting History: Past Champions & Preseason Odds to Win
This page is one of the most popular on our site, and it’s no surprise when you see how much is bet on the big game each year. People love their favorite teams and the NFL in general. When the end of the season gets here they want one last grab for gambling action. Otherwise they will have to wait seven months for a new season to begin.
Once the teams are set we will have a list of game props for those of you who are interested. It doesn’t matter if you like to bet on them or are wanting to put a list together for any parties you might have. We will have you covered.
I like reviewing these odds and comparing them to the game spreads each week. Is there a reason a team is favored that has worse line to win it all? It might be the schedule, some injury, or just a public bias.
Before the season starts we like to find win totals that might be profitable. One way you can do this by comparing teams with similar championship odds. Sometimes you’ll find drastic differences in expected victories. There is more than one way to put a futures bet on a team you like.

Over the previous 15 years the New England Patriots have pulled the biggest upset, that was back in 2002. It comes as no surprise that they were a 14 point underdog in the game, and were not even likely to win the AFC. That championship game was the infamous tuck rule game where Brady and company upset the Oakland Raiders.
You can also check out what the point spreads and totals were for each game on our Super Bowl line history page. We include score results and opponents to give you the complete picture.
The odds on next year’s Super Bowl are typically released the day after the current one is complete. We will keep an archived list so everyone can compare the current ones listed at the top of this page.
Some other key dates are right after the NFL draft, and if there are any coaching changes. The numbers will move during the season when the Vegas odds makers have had a chance to see the teams in action. We will also keep an archived version of the odds after some of these key dates.
