Best bets for Super Bowl XLIX
LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) - Looking at some of the player offseason moves in the NFL can sometime give investors a good team to lay some money on in the offseason to win the Super Bowl.
Really, in my opinion, the draft is where the big game is won each year. Free agent pick-ups, Peyton Manning excluded, rarely determine the Super Bowl winner or even the odds each year.
For instance the Washington Redskins had the biggest additions this offseason adding Desean Jackson, who was cut by the Eagles. The Redskins Super Bowl odds opened at 40-1 and currently sit at 50-1 odds showing us how little a big name player determined the odds.
The Eagles who lost their best wide out went from 25-1 to 20-1 odds. Really the longshot that has the best odds to win it all I think is the Detroit Lions at 40-1 odds there worth a 100* play.
But when it comes down to it what move made by a NFL team creates the most value in the Futures market? I think that team is the New England Patriots they opened at 14-1 odds and now sit at 8-1 odds.
They added key cornerback Darrelle Revis to their defense and with Tom Brady at quarterback and the best coach in the NFL running the show, the Patriots have the most value out there as I recommend all clients place a 300* wager on the Patriots to win the Super Bowl at 8-1 odds.
