The NFL season doesn’t kick off until September 9 when the Dallas Cowboys travel to take on the reigning Super Bowl Champions, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
It isn’t uncommon for sports bettors to start looking at the odds for the season and start to place wagers on who they think will win MVP or the Super Bowl. But sportsbooks are seeing some crazy NFL bets from bettors looking to make money this season.
Chiefs To Win Fewest Games In NFL
The Chiefs have been to the past two Super Bowls, only winning one. But they are the favorites this year to win the Super Bowl. So, a bet on the Chiefs to win the FEWEST games in the NFL is a little risky. Especially since they are expected to win the most games out of every team at 12.5 games.
But a BetMGM bettor threw down $100 on the Chiefs to have the fewest wins in the league this season. The payout would be $50K.
BetMGM Kansas City Chiefs Odds
- Make Playoffs: -1000
- Win AFC West Division: -275
- Win AFC Championship: +200
- Win Super Bowl: +450
- Win Totals: 12.5 games (Under: -145 / Over: +120)
Lions To Win Most Games In NFL
The Detroit Lions haven’t made it to the playoffs since 2016 and are not expected to have a winning record this season. But a bettor at BetMGM feels differently and put down $20 on the Lions to have the most wins in the NFL this season. The payout would be $30K.
BetMGM Detroit Lions Odds
- Win Super Bowl: +10000
- Win Totals: 4.5 games (Under: +125 / Over: -149)
Buccaneers To Go 17-0
The reigning Super Bowl Champs are expected to go to the big game again this year, but one bettor thinks the Bucs could actually go 17-0 before getting to the Super Bowl. Back in 2007, Tom Brady led the New England Patriots to a perfect 16-0 record, only to lose Super Bowl XLII. The league added an extra game this year, so it would be another record for Tom Brady if the Bucs are able to pull this off. The bettor at Caesars placed a $38K bet on the Bucs to have a perfect regular season. The payout would be $1.3 million.
Caesars Tampa Bay Buccaneers Odds
- Win Super Bowl: +650
- Win Totals: 12 games (Under: -120 / Over: +100)
Giants To Win NFC Championship
The New York Giants haven’t won the NFC Championship since 2012, but one bettor thinks the team’s Super Bowl drought will come to an end this season. A bettor at DraftKings put $2.5K on the Giants to win the NFC Championship. The payout would be $102.5K.
DraftKings New York Giants Odds
- Win NFC East Division: +450
- Win NFC Championship: +4000
- Win Super Bowl: +8000
- Win Totals: 7 games (Under: +110 / Over: -130)
A Raiders and Buccaneers Super Bowl Matchup
The Raiders and the Bucs faced off in Super Bowl XXXVII in 2003. Jon Gruden was the coach of Tampa Bay and led them to victory. Now, Gruden is the coach of the Las Vegas Raiders and one bettor thinks the Raiders and Bucs could face off again in this year’s Super Bowl. A bettor at BetMGM dropped $1,000 on a Raiders and Bucs Super Bowl matchup. The payout would be $150K.
BetMGM Las Vegas Raiders Odds
- Make Playoffs: +350
- Win AFC Championship: +4000
BetMGM Tampa Bay Buccaneers Odds
- Make Playoffs: -667
- Win NFC Championship: +300
