Now that the 2021 NFL regular season is underway, fans will no longer be restricted to futures wagering when it comes to the NFL. Each week will find a slew of NFL betting markets available for fans to wager on whether it’s the spread, moneyline, total, or props.

Sportsbooks offer Super Bowl futures odds across the entire year, setting lines on the next Super Bowl immediately after a season ends. As the season progresses, sharp bettors can spot bets with value as every team’s Super Bowl futures odds change from one week to the next.

The defending Super Bowl champions, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers got the season started off right with a win over the Dallas Cowboys. While their odds may have seen a slight uptick at some sportsbooks, they are still second best to the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Chiefs remain favored at legal US sportsbooks to win Super Bowl LVI despite their close call to the Cleveland Browns in Week One. Buffalo remains one of the top contenders despite losing to Pittsburgh. The Rams looked promising in their win over the Bears as did the 49ers in their win over the Lions.

But the teams considered contenders are subject to change from one week to the next in the NFL. Now that the season is underway, it is all about how you play. If the Green Bay Packers continue to play poorly, they will not remain in the Super Bowl conversation. However, if a team like the Cardinals, Chargers, Saints, and Dolphins can continue to win, they could soon be considered contenders.

It might pay to keep an eye on Super Bowl LVI odds as the season progresses.

Current NFL Championship Odds

The Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers opened the season as the top two contenders to win Super Bowl LVI according to the NFL betting odds. Among the top contenders were the Buffalo Bills, Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers, Baltimore Ravens, and Green Bay Packers

Of course, the longer the odds, the bigger the payout. But you have to remember this—the odds are long for a reason. But the odds for the current contenders are not:

Kansas City Chiefs (+500 At FanDuel Sportsbook)

The Chiefs opened the season as the favorite to win Super Bowl LVI despite getting dominated by the Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV. However, after a close call to the Cleveland Browns in Week One, they may need a big win in Week Two to remain on top.

A convincing win over Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens would certainly help cement their status as the favorite.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+700 at BetMGM Sportsbook)

Despite beating the Chiefs in Super Bowl LV, the Buccaneers opened the season with the second-best odds to win Super Bowl LVI. In their season opener, the Dallas Cowboys put up a heck of a fight and even held the lead late in the fourth quarter. But they left Tom Brady more than enough time to get the Bucs in field goal range to steal back the win.

If they can continue to play like they did against the Cowboys, the Buccaneers are going to be tough to beat as the season progresses.

Buffalo Bills (+1200 at Caesars Sportsbook)

The Buffalo Bills emerged as contenders in 2020 and look to remain so in 2021 and beyond. While they looked the part of a legit Super Bowl contender in the first half Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, they could not make the right adjustments in the second half and lost their season opener, 23-16.

But the season is still young, and the Steelers are a good team; there is no shame in losing to them. However, to remain at the forefront of the Super Bowl conversation, they need to beat the Miami Dolphins in Week Two.

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+550
Buffalo Bills+1300
Los Angeles Rams+1300
San Francisco 49ers+1300

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.

Immediately after the previous Super Bowl, legal sportsbooks start offering futures odds on the next year’s Super Bowl immediately after the NFL championship game ends.

You can check out a sportsbook the Monday after a Super Bowl and find futures odds on the next Super Bowl.

Where can I find the best Super Bowl odds?

Many states include several different legal online sportsbooks from which to choose. Astute bettors will explore each sportsbook for the best lines on the Super Bowl.

Top online sportsbooks in the US include FanDuel Sportsbook, DraftKings Sportsbook, BetRivers, BetMGM, and William Hill.

Can I find NFL Draft odds at online sportsbooks?

Yes. Futures odds on the NFL Draft are offered around the calendar at legal online sportsbooks.

FanDuel Sportsbook, for instance, installed Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence as the favorite to go No. 1 in the 2021 NFL Draft, and that bet paid off as the Jacksonville Jaguars drafted Lawrence.

Does DraftKings offer NFL odds?

Yes. Note that DraftKings Sportsbook and the DraftKings daily fantasy sports platform function as different products. Only DraftKings Sportsbook offers NFL betting.

Does FanDuel Sportsbook offer live odds during NFL games?

Yes. You can click on the “Live” tab at the top of the FanDuel Sportsbook lobby to bring up all available live NFL odds at a given time.
