Updated Odds to win the AFC, NFC and Super Bowl Entering Wild Card Weekend

January 8, 2021 01:04 AM

Happy Friday! We have a loaded slate today with 30-plus college basketball games and 10 NBA games. For an updated breakdown of Friday's betting action, be sure to tune in to the VSiN Market Insights Podcast with Josh Appelbaum. It will be posted at noon ET. I'll also be joining the Lombardi Line with Michael Lombardi and Patrick Meagher at 12:25 p.m. ET to offer a market update.

With the NFL Playoffs about to begin, many sports bettors will be looking to place a futures bet or two. They can spice up the playoffs by providing a rooting interest in the overall outcome, and hopefully another way to pad your bankroll outside of individual playoff game bets. The odds to win each conference and the Super Bowl will surely move based on the outcome of this weekend's games. While many bettors have already gotten much better numbers on these teams by placing futures bets weeks and months ago (or before the season began), there is still time for savvy bettors to lock in some value bets as we head into Wild Card Weekend. For some teams, now is the last shot to get them at their highest payouts. If they advance this weekend, their odds will shorten.

Here are the latest odds via BetMGM

To win the Super Bowl

Chiefs + 240

Packers + 550

Bills + 700

Saints + 750

Ravens + 1000

Bucs + 1100

Seahawks + 1400

Rams + 2500

Steelers + 2500

Of course, when you place a futures bet you hope that team will come through for you and win it all. But it's important to note that futures can also present hedging opportunities. For example, let's say you like the Steelers as a + 1400 longshot to win the AFC. The ideal scenario is that they win the AFC and reach the Super Bowl. However, you could also just cross your fingers that they reach the AFC championship game, where they might be facing the Chiefs or Bills. If that scenario comes to fruition, you could either let your bet ride on the Steelers + 1400 or hedge it by betting their opponent (Chiefs or Bills) on the moneyline, thereby guaranteeing yourself a profit.
