Since the start of the 2016 NFL Regular Season a lot has happened when it comes to Super Bowl 51 futures. Online bookies should pay attention to the following teams for the next few weeks.
New England Patriots +325
The Patriots were at +800 to win Super Bowl 51 around the time that QB Tom Brady decided to accept the 4 game suspension. Since that time, the Patriots have gone 3-0 straight up and against the spread. Their last win, a 27 to 0 shellacking of the Houston Texans in Week 3, was their best performance yet.
The Patriots are only going to get hotter in the future. Pay per head agents should set max betting limits on the Patriots to win Super Bowl 51 if they haven’t already. Every casual future player out there is going to look to the Pats to win the Lombardi Trophy after Brady returns in Week 5.
Green Bay Packers +750
The Packers remain the favorite in the NFC. The odds have gone down slightly, from +800 to +750 since the regular season started. There’s a good reason for this. Although Green Bay is 2-1 straight up, the Packers’ loss was to the Minnesota Vikings, who also show up on this list.
Green Bay has been able to score points. That’s something that Seattle wasn’t able to do in their first 2 games of the season. The Seahawks’ odds to win Super Bowl 51 have gone from +800 to +1000. Green Bay’s odds, as long as they keep winning and scoring points, should stay at around +750
Carolina Panthers +1400
The Panthers’ odds dropped from +1000 at the beginning of the NFL Preseason all the way down to +750 at the end of the NFL Preseason. Carolina is now the same as Arizona at +1400 to win the 2017 Super Bowl.
That’s what happens when you lose your fist 2 out of 3 games to start the NFL Regular Season. Losing to Denver in Week 1 wasn’t an issue. Dropping a game to Minnesota in Week 3 as a -6 home favorite is.
Bookies and PPH football betting agents shouldn’t buy it. At +1400, Carolina presents overlay odds. The Panthers are about to get into their NFC South schedule, meaning that they could run the table from now until the end of the regular season. Online bookies should make sure that max betting limits are in place at 14 to 1 odds on the Panthers to win the Super Bowl.
Minnesota Vikings +1200
The Vikings went from +2200 odds at the beginning of the regular season all the way down to their current 12 to 1 odds. That’s a huge drop. Minnesota is undefeated both straight up and ATS. 2 of their 3 wins have been on the road, against Tennessee in Week 1 and against Carolina in Week 3. They might be the best team in the NFC.
Max betting limits should definitely be in place on the Vikings to win the Super Bowl at 12 to 1. If per head agents have any trouble setting max betting limits on their own, they should contact a pay per head rep.
