Super Bowl Odds Update: Steelers, Saints Plummet

Super Bowl Odds Updated

It’s not often you see such a large a shift in Super Bowl odds just ten days into the season, but with the high number of quarterbacks being lost to injury, things are definitely in flux. After Antonio Brown was released by the Oakland Raiders I did a quick article about how you should place a bet on the Patriots to win the Super Bowl as the odds were almost certainly going to change if he signs with them. Hours later, the rumor mill was correct and AB became a Patriot. The PAT’s SuperBowl odds dropped from 7 to 1, to 3.5 to 1 almost instantly. Now after two full weeks of football, the odds are shifting again.

With Ben Roethlisberger done for the season and Drew Brees out for at least 6 weeks, the NFL has turned more into a Bet on the Breeders’ cup than anything. It’s a race to the finish line, with the teams with the least about of injuries more likely make the postseason. The following are the latest Super Bowl odds from then and now, just 10 days ago.

Quick Takes

After the Brees injury, the Saints fell from +800 to +1200, which isn’t that bad. Oddsmakers must feel the that Teddy Bridgewater can do enough to manage the ship while Drew Brees recovers from his hand injury. On paper, the Saints schedule isn’t too bad. They head to Seattle next week and take on the Cowboys in week four, but then get to face off against the Bucs, Jags, Bears, and Cardinals. The Saints have a bye week 9. It is possible Bridgewater could go 4 and 2 over the next six games. The team has an excellent rushing attack and a talented roster. It won’t be easy but all hope is not lost for the Saints.

The Steelers dropped from +1800 to +4000 to win the Super Bowl. Without Big Ben, this season looks to be lost. However, it was just two years ago Nick Foles took over the Eagles and won the Super Bowl as a backup. Never say die.

I put my money where my mouth is, I didn’t just recommend you to bet on Patriots for the sake of an article, I placed a wager also. I was lucky enough to find a sportsbook that was offering +750 for the Patriots to win it all, and they’ve now dropped to +333. The scary part about the Pats Dynasty isn’t so much the offense, it’s the defense. Despite the powder puff schedule, the team has early on this season, they have won both their games with a combined score of 73-3. The defense for the Patriots has never looked better making this arguably one of the best rosters Tom Brady has been apart of. I’m not a Patriots fan, which is why having money on them to win the Super Bowl might be the only thing that smooths the rage I feel for them.
