Super Bowl Odds & Playoff Update

2018 payperhead01

NFL Wildcard Weekend is in the books. Here's a look at the updated Super Bowl odds for the eight remaining teams and were value could be had for bettors.

Sports bettors should take note that online bookie agents most likely made a killing on the Tennessee Titans when QB Marcus Mariota led the Titans to a 22 to 21 win.

More than a couple of bookies decided not to use their layoff accounts in that situation.

See below for Super Bowl LII odds heading into the Divisional Round. After checking out the odds, keep reading for info on what bookie agents are likely to do to prevent possible future betting losses.

Updated Super Bowl LII Odds

New England Patriots +200

Minnesota Vikings +375

Pittsburgh Steelers +500

New Orleans Saints +550

Atlanta Falcons +700

Philadelphia Eagles +1400

Jacksonville Jaguars +1800

Tennessee Titans +5000

What Will Your Online Bookies Do?

The first thing pay per head agents are going to do is set max betting limits on all Super Bowl LII options.

Don’t freak out if the max betting limits set are lower limits for the Philadelphia Eagles, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Tennessee Titans.

It makes sense for bookmakers to set lower limits on future propositions offering higher odds. Philly, the Jags, and the Titans are likely to be set at a $100 max betting limits. The other choices are likely to have a $200 max betting limit set.

Some bookmakers, depending on the health of their organizations, might set much higher limits. It all depends.

The second thing per head agents likely do is to schedule a limit override on all Super Bowl LII future betting until after the Divisional Round.

The reason bookies do this is to prevent sports bettors from taking advantage of pre-game odds.

All odds above are pre-Divisional Round game odds. Let’s say the Saints head to halftime in their battle versus Minnesota with a 17-point lead.

It makes sense that some bettors might try to pounce on the Saints at the current +550 odds.

To prevent this, bookmakers set an override. They make it impossible for bettors to pounce on pre-Divisional Round game odds.

The New England Patriots at +200 might not even be on the board in some sportsbooks. Depending on action already accepted on the Patriots, bookies might have already cut off betting on New England.

There’s no rule that says an individual bookie must offer all Super Bowl LII future bets.

All sports bettors should consider putting a few bucks on the Titans at 50 to 1. Marcus Mariota might have stepped into elite status with the comeback win over KC.

It’s difficult to know what might happen once they kick it off in NFL Playoff games. Sports bettors should try to take advantage of overlay odds when they see them.

It’s not too late to reap the rewards from the NFL season. Super Bowl LII is around the corner, and with last year’s Super Bowl generating 4.7 billion dollars in wagers, it’s the right time to start your own sportsbook.
