MIAMI – As Super Bowl 54 approaches, the NFL is one step closer to crowning a new champion between the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs. As the anticipation builds for that game, sportsbooks wasted no time putting up the futures odds for Super Bowl 55 in Tampa.
This is the best time to make futures bet on Super Bowl 55 odds because the opening odds are going to provide the best returns for bettors compared to later in the year.
A futures bet gives bettors the opportunity to bet not just on one game but the entire season up until the team is eliminated from the playoffs. When making futures bets keep in mind that the odds fluctuate throughout the season.
NFL bookmakers have already posted their Super Bowl 55 odds with the Kansas City Chiefs being listed as the early favorite to make it to the Super Bowl for the second consecutive year with +600 odds.
They’re followed closely by the San Francisco 49ers with +800 odds. These two teams have most of their key players under contract and if both teams stay healthy in the 2021 season, we could see these two teams battling it out for the Lombardi Trophy in consecutive seasons.
USA sportsbooks lists the Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins with the longest odds of any team to win Super Bowl 55 at +15000 odds and +12500 odds respectively.
These two teams are in the middle of rebuilding their organizations and will likely be competing for the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft so bettors are using caution when placing a futures bets on these teams.
Teams like the Dallas Cowboys (+1600), Green Bay Packers (+1600), Minnesota Vikings (+2500), and Houston Texans (+3300) should all be playoff teams in 2021 which make their current odds even more enticing.
A longshot team to consider placing a futures wager on is the New England Patriots. They’re currently listed at +1600 odds and that’s mostly because Tom Brady has yet to resign with the team.
Brady is an unrestricted free agent this offseason and can sign with whatever team he likes but no team is expected to give Brady the opportunity to compete for a Super Bowl like the Patriots. That’s why the +1600 odds on New England are attractive now because if Tom Brady signs with the Patriots those odds will only get shorter.
Former NFL legend Joe Montana has even recently advocated that Tom Brady should stay with the Patriots. If his advice carries any weight in Brady's decision, then picking the Super Bowl 55 odds could be easier.
