Super Bowl LVI odds: Best team value bets for 2021 NFL season

Originally posted on Sportsnaut  |  By Matt Fitzgerald  |  Last updated 5/15/21

A number of NFL futures bets can be placed well in advance of the 2021 NFL season, but Super Bowl odds are where the real market value is in sports betting.

Yes, trying to pick the Lombardi Trophy winner out of 32 teams is a difficult task, yet a lot of clubs can be ruled out from the jump. Consider that a $100 bet on the No. 1 favorite, the Kansas City Chiefs, would yield a $525 profit at +525 odds.

Let’s take a look at the latest Super Bowl odds from DraftKings, and then break down several teams whose odds present the best value while the numbers are still rather raw.

TeamSuper Bowl odds
Kansas City Chiefs+450
Tampa Bay Buccaneers+675
Buffalo Bills+1300
Los Angeles Rams+1300
Baltimore Ravens+1400
San Francisco 49ers+1400
Green Bay Packers+1400
Cleveland Browns+1600
Seattle Seahawks+2500
New Orleans Saints+2500
Indianapolis Colts+2500
New England Patriots+3000
Los Angeles Chargers+3300
Pittsburgh Steelers+4000
Tennessee Titans+4000
Arizona Cardinals+4000

Best value bets for 2022 Super Bowl odds

Playing a favorite: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+675)

Can Tom Brady lead the Bucs to a Super Bowl repeat? Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Tom Brady completely changed the culture in Tampa Bay in just one season. From the chaotic Jameis Winston era to the greatness of TB12, the Bucs came together late in 2020 and won eight straight en route to a Super Bowl LV triumph.

Picking one of the top two favorites admittedly isn’t the best value, but in Tampa’s case, it’s worth a flier. After all, Brady has played in four of the last five Super Bowls, and the Bucs roster is far more talented than anything he was working with toward the end of his time with the New England Patriots.

Tampa Bay somehow kept all its starters on offense and defense, not to mention its top coordinators. That continuity, and a fuller offseason program in 2021, is going to help the Bucs be more consistent this season.

A longer, 17-game season and the fact that Brady had rather serious knee surgery in the offseason are causes for concern. That said, Brady is the ultimate iron man, and until the wheels actually fall off, history tells us it’s never wise to doubt the GOAT.
