Current NFL Championship Odds

NFL betting odds favor the Chiefs and Buccaneers as football fans look ahead to the 2021-22 season. Other top contenders include the Los Angeles Rams, Buffalo Bills, Baltimore Ravens, and San Francisco 49ers.

Longshots to win the NFL Championship pay off at better odds than favored teams.

Kansas City Chiefs (+500 At FanDuel Sportsbook)

Despite a lopsided 31-9 loss to the Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV, Kansas City still goes into next season with the best odds of winning the NFL championship according to the sportsbooks. FanDuel Sportsbook installs the Chiefs at (+500) moneyline odds to win the 2022 Super Bowl.

Franchise quarterback Patrick Mahomes looks to lead the team back to the Super Bowl for the third consecutive year. Offensive stars like running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire and wide receiver Tyreek Hill power one of the most potent offensive attacks in the NFL.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+650 at DraftKings Sportsbook)

The Buccaneers and seven-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady enter next season as one of the favorites to win the 2021-22 Super Bowl. DraftKings Sportsbook sets the line at (+650) for Tampa Bay to go back-to-back with Super Bowl wins.

Brady turns 44 this August, and the ageless NFL icon heads up an offense that includes wide receivers like Mike Evans, Antonio Brown, and Chris Godwin. The Bucs ended the season on an eight-game winning streak, including the playoffs and Super Bowl victory.

Los Angeles Rams (+1300 at BetRivers Sportsbook)

One of the more stunning moves of the NFL offseason saw the Los Angeles Rams and Detroit Lions trade a pair of former No. 1 overall draft picks at the quarterback position. The Rams got veteran Matthew Stafford in the trade, sending Jared Goff to the Lions.

With Stafford at the helm, US sportsbooks see the Rams as one of the strongest teams in the NFC. Los Angeles made it through to the Divisional Round of last year’s playoffs, and appear poised to advance even further this year with their new quarterback.

NFL Super Bowl Betting Odds

Futures bets on the Super Bowl simply task bettors with picking the winner of the next Super Bowl. Sportsbooks offer futures markets on the Super Bowl winner all the way up until the final two teams are determined in the NFL playoffs.

Immediately after the Super Bowl ends, the sportsbooks set odds for the Super Bowl on the following year’s NFL championship. For instance, just days after Super Bowl 55, FanDuel Sportsbook set the following futures odds for the Super Bowl:

Super Bowl LVI Futures Odds (FanDuel Sportsbook)

TeamOdds To Win Super Bowl LVI
Kansas City Chiefs+500
Tampa Bay Buccaneers+650
Buffalo Bills+1200
Los Angeles Rams+1300
Baltimore Ravens+1400

US sportsbooks use American odds to display NFL betting lines. American odds are denoted by a “+” or “-“ sign in front of the odds.

To calculate “+” American odds, divide the odds by 100 and multiply that result by the size of your bet. For example, a $50 bet on the Los Angeles Rams (+1300) line would calculate as (1,300/100)*$50, which yields a result of $650.

A $50 bet on the Rams, if they won the Super Bowl, would return $700 to the bettor ($650 profit plus the original $50 bet).

Bookmakers at each sportsbook set the futures odds on the Super Bowl, which can dramatically change throughout the season. Injuries, trades, acquisitions, and surprise turnarounds can alter the futures odds throughout the regular season.

NFL Playoff Betting Odds

The NFL stands as the most popular sport in the US, and pro football betting activity ramps up when the playoffs come around. You can find NFL playoff odds at all legal US online sportsbooks.

The NFL playoffs use a single-elimination format, unlike the best-of-seven series format used in the NBA, MLB, and NHL. This format leads to some of the most anticipated games on the sports calendar, as each team’s season is on the line in every game.

Sportsbooks often offer NFL playoff odds boosts and other special promotions come playoff time to accommodate the heightened bettor interest.

NFL Game Odds

A typical week in the NFL could include up to 16 games on the schedule. Sportsbooks offer NFL game lines such as point spread, totals, and moneyline bets for each game.

NFL moneyline bets task the bettor with picking the winner of a game, with no point spread involved. Point spread bets add points to the underdog’s final score or subtract from the favored team’s score.

Totals (aka over/under) bets ask the bettor to pick whether the final score will end up over or under a given number.

Parlays allow you to combine multiple bets on one ticket. The potential payout odds on a parlay increase with each added bet, but all bets on the ticket must win for the parlay to win.

Aside from betting on individual games, sportsbooks also offer NFL futures odds throughout the season. NFL futures odds can include bets on the Super Bowl, conference, or division winners. Player futures odds can consist of markets like the NFL MVP and Rookie of the Year.

NFL Live Odds

Live betting, aka in-play betting, allows you to wager on a game that’s already in progress. In-game/live betting lines can change every few seconds, as the sportsbook can adjust the odds after every play.

Many legal online sportsbooks offer live betting. At DraftKings Sportsbook, for example, you can find all available live markets by clicking on the “Live In-Game” tab from the main lobby.

Clicking on that tab brings up all available in-play bets at a given time. You can toggle between sports on the horizontal menu below the “Live In-Game” tab.

While human bookmakers set most of the lines at a sportsbook, the rapidly-changing live betting lines are calculated by computer algorithms.

Placing NFL Prop Bets

NFL player props offer wagers on player statistics, awards, and even where a player is selected in the NFL Draft. A typical NFL player prop on statistics, for instance, could come as a bet on whether a superstar running back like Tennessee’s Derrick Henry will rush for over 100 yards in a game.

NFL Rookie of the Year odds arrive on sportsbook menus immediately following the NFL Draft. NFL MVP odds, like Super Bowl futures odds, come out right after the Super Bowl ends.

BetRivers, for instance, set Patrick Mahomes (+500) as the favorite to win the 2021-22 NFL MVP award immediately following the 2020-2021 Super Bowl.
