2017 Super Bowl LI Outright Betting Odds And Prediction
Super Bowl LI Outright Betting Odds
Championship futures betting is an important part of a successful wagering strategy. Not only can bettors earn a big payday, with a proper prediction, but they can also set up guaranteed winning wagers as we did with our Super Bowl 50 futures bet. Backing Carolina to win Super Bowl 50 prior to Wild Card Weekend action, with a +475 money line, earned us a guaranteed return on Super Bowl Sunday. That’s despite the fact that the Denver Broncos took home the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Due to shrewd wagering moves – we earned a 890-unit profit off our original wager.
As shown in the odds image below, many of the usual suspects are posted as chalk to claim Super Bowl LI that will play out at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, on February 5, 2017. Despite being without QB Tom Brady, who is suspended for the first four games of the season due to Deflategate, the New England Patriots are early chalk with +600 ML odds. Two National Football Conference squads round out the top three Super Bowl LI favorites as the Green Bay Packers have been tagged with a +850 price while the SB XLVIII winning Seattle Seahawks have a +900 money line.

Super Bowl LI Champion: Arizona Cardinals (+1200)
After the top three favorites on the Bodog Super Bowl LI futures betting board – we get a run of three squads that have all been posted with a +1200 money line price. That group includes the Pittsburgh Steelers who are dealing with injuries and suspensions but should still have a powerhouse offense. Super Bowl 50 finalist, the Carolina Panthers, get star wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin back and will once again be a force in the NFC South. The Arizona Cardinals, who made it to the NFC Championship game last season, round out that group. Out of the top six preseason Super Bowl LI favorites - we like the Cardinals with two units at the Bodog sportsbook.
Bettors who took a leap of faith last fall, with underdog priced Carolina, were rewarded if they weren’t greedy. The Panthers had a +4500 ML preseason price and the one-unit wager was easily turned into a guaranteed winner by backing the Denver Broncos +210 Super Bowl 50 money line. It was just a matter of how even they wanted to make the wager. If you are looking for a longshot with a chance - consider the Oakland Raiders and Baltimore Ravens as decent small wager options. They both have big prices, in the wide-open American Football Conference, at Bodog.

In addition to odds on the Week One preseason games, the Bodog Sportsbook is loaded with futures prices. We’ve discussed the Super Bowl LI futures odds but bettors can also wager on which team will capture the AFC and NFC Championships as well the winner of each of the eight divisions. Lines are also available on the Over/Under season win total for all 32 teams. On those prices we love the 9.5 (-175) win price posted on the Arizona Cardinals. We are backing that line with a five-unit wager at Bodog – a Canadian National Football League wagering legend.
