NFL Super Bowl Odds 2021

Betting on the Super Bowl is one of the most popular sports bets that fans make every year. Because it is one of the most-watched and bet on events in the country, oddsmakers are very careful where they place their lines. Understanding NFL Super Bowl odds is important for every budding sports bettor. 

Sportsbooks use a host of different factors to include in NFL odds. Such as strength of schedule, previous season success, additions on the roster, and past history to show the likelihood to win the big game.

For example, before the 2019 season, the Kansas City Chiefs were +600 to win the Super Bowl. They would go on to face the San Francisco 49ers who were +4000 before the season. After a very successful season, the Chiefs would land themselves at -121 before the Super Bowl, where they would land a come from behind victory.

The oddsmakers were once again accurate in their assessments, giving the Chiefs near the top odds before the season and landing them as a favorite before the game that they won. Currently, the Chiefs look poised to push forward again this year especially with Clyde Edwards-Helaire as their sparkly new weapon. NFL Season 2020/21 is underway, and not a moment too soon.

Odds To Win The Super Bowl – Who’s Odds Are Increasing Week 11

Super Bowl odds are always changing throughout the season. Be sure to check continually for updates as well as use our automated chart to track the changes in 7, 14, and 21-day intervals. The NFL futures odds are updated daily. 

Los Angeles Rams +1700

The Rams were heavily slept on coming into this season. Many forget, they made the Super Bowl two years ago. They missed the playoffs last year but are prepared to make a run at the NFC West title and maybe the playoffs. A huge Monday night game against the Bucs looms over their odds. If they win, their odds will skyrocket. 

Arizona Cardinals +2225

Is Kyler Murray the next Michael Vick? Is he better than Michael Vick? He has been flat out electric so far this season. He is an MVP contender and his numbers are better than Lamar Jackson’s were this time last year. Kyler Murray is the best thing about the Cardinals but that’s about where it ends. Their defense struggles and their offensive line is a wreck.

Odds To Win The Super Bowl – Who’s In Trouble Week 11

When looking at Super Bowl odds, bettors would be wise to follow offseason rumors and trends. For instance, Jamal Adams is the Jets’ best overall player on both sides of the ball. He requested a trade during the offseason. The Jets decided to move their star safety, leading to their already longshot odds of +8000 to dip near the bottom of the league at +30000 on DraftKings.

Injuries are also a huge part of Super Bowl futures bets. When star players get injured, Super Bowl favorites can change in a heartbeat. For example, Patrick Mahomes’ dislocated his kneecap in 2019.  The entire team held their breath hoping it was not season-ending.

Baltimore Ravens +1600

From +900 to +1600. Huge “yikes” from the Ravens after they were beaten on Sunday night by the Patriots. They struggled to do anything on offense against the Patriots team that should have lost to the Jets. The Ravens have become a mess offensively and Lamar Jackson has some serious adjustments to make after they get bounced in the postseason. 

Seattle Seahawks +1600

It went from “Let Russ Cook” to “Russ is Cooked”. He cannot do everything for this team. The offensive line is bad, they struggle to run the ball, and their defense is allowing more passing yards than any team in ten years. This team is being held together by a historically great quarterback, Russell Wilson.

Stay up to date on all the latest rumors to make the most educated of picks.

COVID-19 Affecting Gameplay 

The 2021 Super Bowl odds could also change dramatically as the nation learns about how COVID-19 will affect gameplay throughout the season. Before this week, the NFL was off to a fantastic start. This quickly turned as 11 players on the Titans tested positive for COVID-19. The outbreak has ceased in Tennessee but spread to other teams as well.

The NFL has experienced plenty of positive tests this season for COVID-19. They have been proactive in attempting to contact trace to stop the spread and save games. However, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported via Twitter that the NFL could resort to adding a Week 18. The details of how week 18 would be played out are still unknown. What we do know, is that the NFL will only use a Week 18 if they absolutely have to. 

The NFL unanimously approved a proposal to add two playoff teams if games get canceled. According to ESPN’s Chris Mortenson, the NFL is prepared to add the teams creating a 16 team playoff in the NFL. These are extremely uncertain times so this may never come to fruition. And whether it is an 18-week regular season or expanded playoffs, there will be no change to the Super Bowl LV date. In these scenarios, Week 18 would take place on January 10th. The bye week that is typically used after the Pro Bowl will no longer take place. Alas, Super Bowl LV will still take place on February 7th, 2021.

Where Can I Bet On The Super Bowl Online 

If you want to bet on the Super Bowl online you must be located in one of the states that permit legal online sports betting.

The list of states where online sports betting is legalized changes regularly. States like New Jersey and Pennsylvania set the stage for online Super Bowl Betting early on. States like Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Tennessee, Nevada, and West Virginia all recently launched online sports betting. Each of them already has live online sportsbooks ready to take Super Bowl futures bets.

Each state has different sportsbooks that are legally allowed to operate in a given state. For example, BetMGM is legal in New Jersey, Nevada, West Virginia, Indiana, and Colorado.  One of the more widely recognized sportsbooks, BetMGM offers a $500 risk-free bet that can be used while betting on the Super Bowl.

How To Choose The Best Sportsbook For Super Bowl Betting

Many fans would be keen to use this risk-free bet for a free shot at the Super Bowl winner at advantageous odds. For instance, if you bet on the Buccaneers to win the Super Bowl before they signed Tom Brady you would get odds near +3000. These are extremely strong odds and gives your bet of $500 the chance to turn into $15,500. 

It is important to differentiate which sportsbooks have the best odds. Sharps typically have multiple sportsbooks that they are registered with. They will flip between the sports betting apps to make a decision that is the most profitable. For example, if PointsBet has the Buccaneers at +2900 but BetMGM had the odds at +2600, the seemingly small difference in odds is worth $1,500 in this particular bet. 

Each sportsbook is different based on the available odds. Some charge a higher vig and some odds change because big amounts of money are being thrown around. If large wagers are placed on the Chiefs to win the Super Bowl, their odds will begin to change so the books can adjust to the amount of liability.

Where Can I Bet On The Super Bowl In Vegas?

Las Vegas is one of the top cities for betting on sports in the country. Mobile betting is not ideal, however, as fans must go to a casino first before being able to register for a mobile sportsbook.

Vegas is known for its wide array of casinos and resorts that get herds of visitors from across the country. The plethora of options on the Vegas Strip will make the fan experience even more fun whether you are betting on live events already in progress or before gameplay. Going to Las Vegas sportsbooks to place Super Bowl bets is very common.

MGM Grand, Caesar’s Palace, and Golden Nugget are very popular Las Vegas casinos. The Westgate SuperBook, Caesars Palace, Wynn, South Point, Venetian, and many other Las Vegas casinos host sportsbooks. All of these venues offer numerous ways to bet on the NFL.

How Are Super Bowl Bettings Odds Calculated? 

Bettors that understand how odds are broken-down and calculated can make bets more educated.  There are so many different factors that play into the Super Bowl favorites. More often than not, the best teams are going given the best odds. But this is not always the case.

Before the 2019 season, bookmakers placed the Chiefs at +600 odds and the Patriots at +400 odds. Few will deny that the Chiefs have more talent but the reality is that the Patriots have the pedigree and history to make bettors lean their direction. 

Other factors will include the difficulty of their regular season schedule, additions to the roster from the previous year, and of course, the overall talent on the roster. When the Chiefs won the Super Bowl in February of 2020, they were +600 before the start of the season. If you signed up for PointsBet Sportsbook or FanDuel Sportsbook, you were given a $500 risk-free bet. If you placed your risk-free bet on the Chiefs your $500 bet would profit $3,000. 

When looking ahead to the odds for this coming season, the Chiefs drafted a running back in the backend of the first round giving them another playmaker at their disposal. The running back from LSU Clyde Edwards-Helaire will not drastically switch the odds.

However, coming off of a Super Bowl-winning season, the Chiefs brought nearly everyone back and added a running back at their weakest offensive position. Bringing the band back together and adding to it is exactly what oddsmakers look for when declaring favorites. The Chiefs are the favorite again this year and are as high as +600 to repeat as Super Bowl champs. 

NFL Week 11 Odds Breakdown

An up and down season for the Buccaneers continued as they put up nearly fifty points against Carolina. The Ravens tank job from Super Bowl favorites to wildcard hopefuls came full circle. Lastly, Drew Brees is set to miss multiple weeks for the Saints putting their entire season into limbo. The wild NFL season continues on as their COVID-19 protocols continue to tighten up. Week 11 should give us more information about who is a pretender, and who is a contender.

Odds provided by DraftKings Sportsbook

Kansas City Chiefs (+345) 

NFL Week 11 Odds For The Chiefs

  • The Chiefs did not play in week 10 this was their bye week. They did climb slightly in the odds based on the struggles from other teams. Clyde Edwards-Helaire is questionable this week with an undisclosed illness so that is definitely worth monitoring. 
  • Patrick Mahomes has risen to the top of the MVP odds this week as well. He is hovering around +145 at most sportsbooks. Russell Wilson has fallen victim of many turnovers recently forcing Mahomes to climb during his bye week. 
  • This week is a revenge game for the Chiefs as the Raiders dealt the Chiefs their only loss this year. Expect the Chiefs to come out firing in this one in primetime.

Key Acquisitions Offseason

  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire should get a chance to start immediately. 
  • Extended QB Patrick Mahomes and DT Chris Jones. 
  • Le’Veon Bell (midseason acquisition)

Pittsburgh Steelers (+575)

Steelers Week 11 Odds 

  • The Steelers did not let down against the Bengals this past week. Joe Burrow was under constant duress throughout the game. That defense is the best in football and it is not particularly close. 
  • Ben Roethlisberger shut down the narrative that he is declining. He threw for four touchdowns against the Bengals. It appears as though that James Conner is the issue for the offense. He is unable to keep the defense honest. 
  • Chase Claypool is unbelievably talented. The Notre Dame product is a red zone target machine and is extremely impressive for a wide receiver room that is already top in the league.

Key Acquisitions Offseason

  • Chase Claypool WR: Rookie WR from Notre Dame has been unbelievable so far this year. 
  • Eric Ebron TE: A lacking position for the Colts and has been a welcome addition for Roethlisberger. 
  • Ben Roethlisberger QB: Not really an addition but he was injured most of the year. The Steelers are not nearly the same team when he is not there.

New Orleans Saints (+675)

NFL Week 11 Odds For The Saints

  • “This is why we can’t have nice things.” The Saints lost Drew Brees to injury with a collapsed lung and broken ribs. Brees will be out for at least two weeks maybe even longer. They will hand the reins to Taysom Hill. 
  • Jameis Winston is being passed over by the Saints for starting qb honors. The Saints appear to be experimenting with Hill as their full-time qb for the first time. This will be a fascinating experiment as Brees finishes his last season. 
  • This week’s game against the Falcons has huge implications. If the Saints lose to the Falcons, the Buccaneers have a shot to win the division. Furthermore, there is only one bye week in the NFL playoffs. The Packers, Saints, Seahawks, and Buccaneers need that bye to make a run.

Key Offseason Acquisitions

  • Cesar Ruiz C, Michigan: Bit of a reach here but they did not have many picks to play with. 
  • Zack Baun LB, Wisconsin: Put up huge numbers at Wisconsin and will be a welcomed addition. 
  • Malcolm Jenkins, Safety. Welcoming back the captain of their defense! 4-year contract. 
  • Emmanuel Sanders, WR. Huge addition next to Michael Thomas who will help form one of the best receiving corps in the NFL.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+900)

NFL Week 11 Buccaneers Odds

  • The key to the Buccaneers is to run the football, a lot. Ronald Jones and Leonard Fournette ran all over the Panthers last week resulting in them hanging 46 points on Carolina. 
  • The run game will open up the passing game for Tom Brady. Antonio Brown has been heavily used by the Buccaneers already. If he is able to stay out of trouble, which is far from a guarantee, he will help during the stretch run. 
  • Monday night football against the Los Angeles Rams mother watering. Aaron Donald will be hunting down Tom Brady. Make no mistake, this is a must win for the Buccaneers to win a title.

Key Offseason Acquisitions

  • QB Tom Brady: This one is obvious, the Buccaneers have been looking for a solid Quarterback for twenty years. Why not add the 6-time Super Bowl winner?
  • TE Rob Gronkowski: The band is back together! Who doesn’t want to see Brady and Gronk back in action?
  • Antonio Brown WR (midseason signing): Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Antonio Brown at wide receiver might be the best set we have ever seen.

      Green Bay Packers (+950)

      Week 11 Packers Odds

      • This is a tough team to figure out. They almost lost to the Jaguars who are starting a rookie 7th round qb last week. They’ve also been smoked by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Anyone could guess how this team plays out the season. Their range of outcomes are all over the map.
      • They are missing a weapon at wide receiver. To think that they drafted Jordan Love when Justin Jefferson and Chase Claypool were available is sickening. The Packers have no one to blame but themselves if they do not have the horses to make a Super Bowl run.  
      • The defense on Green Bay is not perfect either. Matt LaFleur drafted running back AJ Dillon in round two. He coached Dillon at Boston College so the connection is obvious. But the first two picks of their draft were spent on luxuries when they had clear needs at wide receiver and defense. 

      Key Acquisitions

      •  Jordan Love, QB, Utah State
        •  was drafted in the first round by Green Bay. This is presumably what upset Aaron Rodgers who believes he could have used a wide receiver or tight end to help him succeed. Instead he got his aire apparent. He did not get good reviews in training camp and has been a healthy inactive so far this season. 
      • AJ Dillon, RB, Boston College
        •  The running back from Boston College who many thought would compete with Aaron Jones for touches. Not only has he not competed for touches but he has hardly seen the field. He was Matt LaFluer’s favorite pick from BC. He even got a compliment saying, “I have never seen a running back built like AJ Dillon.” So far it has been the Aaron Jones show. 
      • LB Christin Kirksey is a former Cleveland Brown who appears to be finally healthy. He has looked excellent so far in Green Bay. Replacing Blake Martinez is tough but he has done an admirable job. 
        • LB Christin Kirksey is a former Cleveland Brown who appears to be finally healthy. He has looked excellent so far in Green Bay. Replacing Blake Martinez is tough but he has done an admirable job. 
      • RT Rick Wagner has filled in admirably for long time cheeser Bryan Bulaga. The offensive line has looked excellent in the short season and he did a solid job guarding the perennial superstar Cameron Jordan.  

      NFL Super Bowl Odds And Betting

      Moneyline

      Also known as a “straight bet” a Moneyline bet just chooses the winner of the game. When betting on the Moneyline, the odds are usually not exact. Typically there are favorites and underdogs. When the Chiefs and 49ers matched up for the Super Bowl, the Chiefs were around -121 and the 49ers +107. 

      When comparing NFL odds, a plus symbol means that the option is an underdog. The minus symbol means the option is a favorite to win. Moneyline betting odds with a “+” notation are relatively simple to calculate. The +195 line on the Giants, for example, means a $100 wager would net $195 in profit. In other words, the $100 bet would return a total of $295 (the $195 in profit and the original $100 bet).

      Point Spreads

      Points spread bets or “handicap bets” are when sportsbooks put teams against a number that they must win or lose by. For the Chiefs, they were -1.5 against the 49ers during Super Bowl LIV. Had they won by 1 point and you bet on -1.5, the bet would lose. Conversely, if the 49ers lost by 1 and you had +1.5, your bet would win. 

      Over/Under (Totals)

      Betting on an Over/Under or total points bet means you are not betting on any team. If you bet over you are betting on the combined number of points between the two teams. Bookmakers set a number. Fans need to decide whether the game will go over or under that number. For Super Bowl LIV, bookmakers set the Over/Under at 54.5. 

      Parlays

      When placing a parlay bet, you are betting on two or more things to happen. To get paid on your bet, all of the outcomes must occur in a given parlay. If you were to parlay Chiefs to win and Under 54.5 your bet would win. Conversely, if you bet Chiefs to win and Over 54.5 your bet would lose as the score of Super Bowl LIV was 31-20. 

      What Is An NFL Futures Bet?

      The futures market in sports betting is a huge part of the industry. The possible bet types range from championship winners to divisional winners, and even MVP candidates. Fans can even bet on games that have not happened yet. For instance, when the Saints play the Vikings on Christmas Day, odds could be available weeks before this competitive matchup. These are all examples of an NFL Futures Bet.  

      Super Bowl Prop Bets

      Prop bets are becoming more popular in the sports betting world. And there is no more popular betting event than the Super Bowl. Super Bowl prop bets go hand-in-hand because of the creativity involved and the added excitement for a much-hyped game.

      A prop bet is a bet on an occurrence or non-occurrence of an event happening in a game, match, or season. 

      Past Super Bowl Prop Bets

      The WestGate Las Vegas, an oddsmaker, started getting creative with prop bets on the Super Bowl. Now, every sportsbook puts out Super Bowl prop bets. Even websites like CBS Sports, which does not cover gambling regularly, covers Super Bowl prop bets. 

      One popular prop bet for the Super Bowl is how long it will take the singer to complete the National Anthem. Leading up to Super Bowl LIV, singer Demi Lovato sang the National Anthem for the Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather fight in 2018. She clocked in at well over 2 minutes for that performance. The expectation would be that she would do the same at the Super Bowl. Shockingly, Demi Lovato went under 2 minutes at +180 for the performance. This bet is offered every year and will assuredly be offered this year too. 

      Super Bowl Prop Bets 2021

      Most Super Bowl prop bets are set once the teams are decided for the matchup. Until then, sportsbooks might get creative about what prop bets they start to offer before that time. Due to how unique this NFL season is, the prop bets could be more creative than ever.

      Just having a little fun, there could be a prop bet on how many times will players be tested for COVID-19 before the Super Bowl. There may be a bet on how many fans will be present at Raymond James Stadium for the Super Bowl. Although the full capacity is 65,618, it is unclear how many seats will be filled for this particular Super Bowl. 

      NFL Season-Long Prop Bets

      In addition to Super Bowl prop bets, many sportsbooks offer season-long NFL prop bets. These can be bets on a particular team or a particular player’s performances and stats over a season. In football, many of these  NFL prop bets revolve around injuries.

      For example, if at the start of the season, you bet on Dak Prescott to lead the league in passing yards, you are out of luck. He is out for the year and can no longer win the award. It is impossible to bet on who will or won’t get injured. However, it is best to grab a player who is rarely injured that you believe in. Avoid players who are often injured or have soft tissue injuries regularly. 

      Some other season-long NFL prop bets include:

      To pass for the most yards in the  NFL

      Patrick Mahomes +300

      Russell Wilson +350

      Josh Allen +650

      Matt Ryan +750

      Aaron Rodgers +850

      Looking for a QB who can sling it, you could do worse than taking a long shot here. Dak Prescott was running away with this award before the injury. Josh Allen is your best bet here as he is being given no respect as the current leader. 

      Most Receiving Yards in the NFL

      DeAndre Hopkins +500

      Stefon Diggs +800

      DK Metcalf +800

      Calvin Ridley +800

      Robby Anderson +1100

      Most catches, third-most targets, second-most yards per game (Crowder). Hopkins is a very solid value at +500. If you also believe in Josh Allen, Diggs is a potential option. There are not many mouths to feed in Buffalo so Diggs will continue to get fed. Hopkins should stay healthy enough for the opportunity, he has only missed 2 games in his entire career. 

      Defensive Player of the Year in the NFL:

      Aaron Donald +300

      Myles Garrett +400

      TJ Watt +550

      Khalil Mack +600

      All pass rushers here for this prop bet. This is very different considering Stephon Gilmore won it last year for the New England Patriots. Aaron Donald is an absolute force for the Rams. Barring injury I think everyone agrees that he is the best defensive player in the NFL. 

      How The NFL Draft Affects Super Bowl Odds

      In some cases, the NFL Draft can shift the odds one way or another. For instance, the Chiefs drafted Clyde Edwards-Helaire at the backend of the first round by the Chiefs. He is expected to be a major contributor and able to help the Chiefs backfield. This is rare, however. Teams that are competing for a title usually do not have top draft picks to get an impact player. The Chiefs would have been the favorites to win the Super Bowl preseason whether they had Edwards-Helaire or not. 

      Strategies For Super Bowl Betting 

      Alternate Lines

      Using Alternate Lines can be extremely profitable when it comes to sports betting. When a line comes out from the sportsbook, it can move in many different directions. If you like the Super Bowl line at the beginning of the week, it could be wise to jump on it early with an alternate spread to increase profitability.

      Fade the Public?

      Super Bowl lines move all over the place because it is one of the most bet on sporting events of the year. Fading the Public is a betting strategy that goes with the initial betting line that oddsmakers put out. The idea is to not follow where the public is betting and to always stick with the professionals.  

      What is Middling in Sports Betting?

      A betting strategy that most casual bettors would not know, Middling is a strategy that mandates multiple wagers on a game. It is not perfect but it can be quite effective. The best way to explain middling is with an example. 

      • You place a bet on the  New York Giants  at -4 vs the Dallas Cowboys
      • *The line moves to Giants -7*
      • You then place a second wager on the Cowboys +7. 
      • It is called middling because the bettor wants the best of both outcomes. They want the Cowboys to lose by less than 7 and the Giants to win by more than 4. 

      This will limit your financial risk and allow you to win in multiple different ways.

      Betting Odds For The Super Bowl FAQ 

      Is it legal to bet on the Super Bowl in the US?

      Yes, in states with legalized sports betting. Currently, 19 US states allow legal sports betting, with 13 of those states offering legal online sports betting.

      Some of the states that offer both land-based and online sportsbooks include Nevada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Indiana, and Illinois.

      Office pools and other types of betting on the Super Bowl outside of legal sportsbooks are technically against the law.

      How old do I need to be to bet on the Super Bowl?

      In most states, you must be 21 years of age or older to bet on the Super Bowl. In New York, Montana, and Rhode Island you are legally allowed to wager at 18 years or older. They have not legalized online sports betting yet.

      Where can I bet on the Super Bowl?

      The top online sportsbooks includes FanDuel, DraftKings, BetMGM, and FOX Bet. Every single sportsbook that you find will offer bets on the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl is the most bet on sports event of the year so any sportsbook that is not offering the Super Bowl is not a reliable online sports betting site.

      Is it safe to place a Super Bowl bet online?

      Yes. Using any of the legal online sportsbooks found on this page will allow you to place any bet legally and safely. Be careful to only use sportsbooks that are legally licensed or partnered with a legal online casino. They are the most reliable for safe deposits and cashouts.

      Do online sportsbooks offer in-game, live betting during the Super Bowl?

      Yes. Live betting on the Super Bowl is an extremely popular and fun way to bet. In-game betting is not limited to the spread or moneyline either. You can bet on a host of prop bets and point totals throughout the game as the lines move.

      Can I bet on events happening off the field?

      Yes. Many sportsbooks have licenses to hold these types of bets. From the length of the National Anthem to the color of the Gatorade at the end of the game, everything can be bet on during the Super Bowl.

      Who is the current Super Bowl odds favorite for 2021?

      The current favorite to win Super Bowl LV is the Kansas City Chiefs. They are the favorite to win it followed by the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers. The Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs are in the same Conference so they will not be able to face off in the Super Bowl.

      When is the 2021 Super Bowl?

      Super Bowl LV is expected to take place on February 7th, 2021 in Tampa, Florida. 

      The Covid-19 Pandemic notwithstanding, the event is still slated to take place in Florida. The Buccaneers are clearly making a push to be the first team to ever host the Super Bowl in their home stadium and play in it. This would be a huge advantage for any team that could accomplish that feat.
