The 2022 NFL season is entering Week 4, and sportsbooks including DraftKings are dealing odds on whether any team will go undefeated this year, either throughout the regular season or all the way through Super Bowl 57.

After three weeks, the Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins are the only unbeaten teams remaining in the NFL.

For frame of reference, DraftKings offered +1400 odds on any team to go 17-0 before the season started. Those odds rose from +800 last week to +2500 as of this writing.

Prior to the season, the odds on a perfect 20-0 campaign for any team were +4000. They were +2500 last week and lengthened to +4000 as of Sept. 27.

This is an intriguing betting market when you consider the unlikelihood of it happening for just the fifth time in NFL history. The Chicago Bears accomplished the feat twice, but that was back in the 1930s and 1940s.

The Miami Dolphins became the only team to run the table during the regular season and NFL Playoffs during their Super Bowl title season in 1972. Players from that team still toast the accomplishment with champagne when the NFL’s final undefeated team loses each season.

Most recently, the New England Patriots went 16-0 during the 2007 regular season. The Patriots provide the only modern-day blueprint for an undefeated season. New England led the NFL in scoring with 36.8 points per game that year under the direction of league MVP Tom Brady.

The Pats failed to join the Dolphins with a perfect season, however. New England was a 12.5-point favorite against the New York Giants in the Super Bowl but came away from that game with a bitter 17-14 loss.

Philadelphia’s odds remained unchanged from last week. Miami’s odds shortened from +20000 to +8000 at DraftKings.

Philadelphia Eagles (+3500)

The Eagles play an upstart Jacksonville team that’s led by former Philadelphia head coach Doug Pederson in Week 4. Philly opened as a -7 favorite. The Eagles will then face the Cardinals, Cowboys, and Steelers during the remainder of October.

Miami Dolphins (+8000)

Miami’s Week 3 win over Buffalo proved that the Dolphins are for real.

Miami now travels to Cincinnati to face the Bengals on Thursday Night Football. QB Tua Tagovailoa is questionable as he’s reportedly dealing with multiple injuries suffered against the Bills.

If Miami can get past the Bengals, there is a favorable matchup against the NY Jets in Week 5.

Betting Analysis

Is there a viable wager to be had among the NFL’s undefeated betting markets? The suggestion here is to tread carefully and approach these markets with small bets in the spirit of fun.

Today’s NFL either profits from or is plagued by parity, depending on your worldview. That certainly doesn’t help the chances for an undefeated season. All you need to do is examine the implied probability of the two teams above to run the board this season. Your best chance is 2.78% to win on the Eagles. Meh.

In the aforementioned spirit of fun, here is one bet to consider in the NFL’s undefeated betting markets:

  • Dolphins to go 17-0? YES (+8000 at DraftKings)

Put $50 on that and hope for another miracle in Miami. The payout would be $4,000 if the Dolphins duplicate their heroics from the 1972 season.
