Odds To Win Super Bowl 53: Rams Are Now the Faves in the NFC

You can feel it in the air. The anticipation for the NFL season is reaching a fever pitch with the preseason underway and oddsmakers have updated their board for which team will win Super Bowl 53, with the New England Patriots holding firm as the favorite to win it all.

The Patriots (+650) are in the top spot again for the fourth year in a row prior to Week 1 and are followed by the Rams (+850), Eagles (+1000), Steelers (+1000), Packers (+1100), Vikings (+1200), Saints (+1600), Jaguars (+1800), Falcons (+2000) and Texans (+2000) to round out the top 10.

Should Bettors go in again on the Patriots?

Well, it didn’t work out too well in Super Bowl 52 vs the Eagles but the Patriots are a team that you have to seriously consider if you’re laying big money. For starters, they play in a weaker conference, the AFC East division is a cakewalk, and they’ve won 12 or more games every year since 2010. When betting on a potential Super Bowl winner, you need to feel confident that the team you invest in will actually make it to the finale. Then you can decide if the matchup gives you pause and can still have the opportunity to hedge. As a team that has made the Super Bowl in three of the last four years (won two), the recent track record speaks for itself.

Opposing teams dread having to go into Foxborough to knock off the Pats in the postseason and based on New England’s strength of schedule for 2018 (ranked 10th), they’re in line to have home-field advantage again in the playoffs. This means New England may have a fast track to the title game so the +650 value may be the best value that bettors can get if they plan to back the Patriots to win their sixth Lombardi Trophy.

The Rams are the New NFC Fave

In a surprise development, the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles are no longer the favorites to come out of the NFC as that title has shifted to the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams went into full Madden GM mode in reshaping their roster this offseason with the high-profile acquisitions of Brandin Cooks, Ndamukong Suh, Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters that will give them Pro Bowlers at nearly every position.

While I give them credit for retooling, the fact remains that the NFC is so much deeper than the AFC that even getting to the Super Bowl will be a tremendous accomplishment, let alone winning the whole thing. The NFC has seven teams that could conceivably win the Super Bowl in the Rams, Saints, Eagles, Packers, Vikings, Falcons and Panthers and that’s just the obvious contenders. The 49ers, Giants and Cowboys are all lurking in the weeds to take that top spot so to invest in the Rams at +850 with so many other decent options in the NFC may be a fool’s errand.

Giants May Be the Best Long shot

Based on value alone, the New York Football Giants should catch the eyes of the bettors who like to bet on the big number. At +5000, the G-Men currently have the 20th-best odds to win Super Bowl 53 and considering the way they reloaded in the offseason, you would think their odds would be lower. Injuries and poor play from quarterback Eli Manning submarined New York before Thanksgiving as 2017 was a year where everything seemed to go wrong. But the good news is the Giants running game should be night and day in 2018 after adding running back Saquon Barkley and tackles Nate Solder and Will Hernandez. Pair Barkley with receivers like Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard and the Giants’ +5000 odds to win Super Bowl 53 are very enticing.
