Which NFL Teams had the Strongest Off-Season?
While North America deals with the up and downs of COVID-19, the National Football League has remained steady with their plans, statements, and transactions leading into the 2020-21 season.
2021 Super Bowl futures betting is the most consistent wager in an interesting sports climate. However, some moves this off-season shifted odds at PayPerHead and breathed life into teams who were previously an afterthought.
COVID-19 2021 Super Bowl Betting Update
The most significant impact COVID has had on the NFL so far is that several Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys tested positive after the Boys’ and Texans’ NFL headquarters opened in early June.
There’s been talk that testing could occur during training camp and in the regular season. Testing could happen up to three times per week.
That could make for some wild injury report updates week-to-week. Bookies have to be on the ball when it comes to NFL and Super Bowl betting futures odds changes. A Monday morning report could completely revise the Super Bowl wagering landscape.
Also, the NFL will likely shorten the NFL preseason to just two games if not cancel preseason altogether. However, bookies should expect a minimal Super Bowl futures impact.
If the Patriots dynasty has proven anything, rust starting the regular season won’t influence which team hoists the Lombardi in February.
2021 Super Bowl Betting Off-Season Moves
The Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs bring bettors to the table. But, they’re not the only ones. Check out other squads who made off-season moves that shook up the 2021 Super Bowl betting futures.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers +1000
COVID or not, Tom Brady leaving New England and joining the Tampa Buccaneers is the most significant news this NFL off-season. Brady plus an unretired Rob Gronkowski, future hall-of-famer Mike Evans, and 1,300-yard receiver Chris Goodwin?
Bettors will wager in droves on the Bucs to win it all. Bookies taking early Super Bowl betting action should keep limits low to prevent having to again pray for Brady’s downfall.
The Bucs aren’t favorites to win it all – that honor goes to the defending champion Chiefs – which makes their +1000 odds an enticing prospect for sports bettors. Though there’s been talk of Tom Terrific’s decline, there’s no doubt the GOAT has more to work with in Tampa for his seventh ring attempt.
New England Patriots +1200
Some would like to argue that Bill Belichick rode Brady’s coattails to his six New England Super Bowls. But Belichick, along with offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, has proven capable of building above-average offenses regardless of the starting signal-caller.
So it’s no surprise that signing 2015 MVP Cam Newton is big Super Bowl betting news. The Pats were fourth in play-action passes last year and have experience with mobile quarterbacks after Jacoby Brissett became a starter in 2017.
Bookies should expect Cam’s signing to attract Super Bowl bets on New England as we get closer to NFL Week 1.
Indianapolis Colts +2200
The Colts made two big moves that should entice bettors. They traded a first-round pick for defensive tackle DeForest Buckner and they signed veteran quarterback Philip Rivers.
Having a vet like Rivers under center after Indy struggled at QB last year is significant. But quietly, the bigger move could be trading for pro-bowl tackle Buckner, a devastating run stuffer.
The COVID situation may also help the Colts more than it hurts. Indianapolis is one of the few states where the virus hasn’t risen to troubling levels. This development could boost the Colts ascent if Indiana remains a low coronavirus impacted state.
Bookies should watch the Colts closely and adjust odds and limits accordingly.
Arizona Cardinals +3000
How do you help your young, Rookie-of-the-Year QB reach Super Bowl LV? Bring in one of the best wideouts in the game.
DeAndre Hopkins went to Arizona for a measly 4th-round pick, giving QB Kyler Murray a HOFer WR duo of Hopkins and Larry Fitzgerald.
The move brought the Cardinals odds to +3000. Bookies have already seen an uptick in future wagering on Arizona to win the 2021 Super Bowl.
Buffalo Bills +2800
The Bills added former Vikings wideout Stefon Diggs for just a 7th-round pick. Not only that, but division rival New England lost Tom Brady, opening the door for Buffalo to make a run for the AFC East title.
QB Josh Allen doesn’t give bettors a ton of confidence. But Allen can now throw the pigskin to Stefon.
That should boost interest from Bowl bettors looking for value in a GOAT-less division.
