NFL Futures | Wild Card Weekend

By: Joe Berra

On the eve of the start of the NFL playoffs, we’re all looking for something a little extra to bet on…to make the playoffs that much more exciting. America’s Bookie has everything you’re looking for and more. Let’s have a look at the futures options available for your betting pleasure.

Of course, odds have been posted for all 12 teams to win the Super Bowl, but you can also find odds on who will win the NFC and AFC Championships and possible Super Bowl match-ups. If you’d like to see a comparison of odds from 3-4 weeks ago, have a look at my article, NFL Futures and Props Wagering from December 18th.

Even though the New England Patriots have been decimated by injuries, having lost time from top tight end Rob Gronkowski, five wide receivers, losing the services of their top two running backs for the season, losing tackles and guards (this is just the offensive side of the ball); they are still the favorite to win the Super Bowl. I think someone likes the Brady/Belichick combo.

Following them closely are the 2nd seed in the NFC, the Arizona Cardinals even though the Carolina Panthers finished with the best record this season. The Panthers are the 3rd favored to win according to the odds posted at the world’s best offshore sportsbook.

Rounding out the top 5 are the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks, who met in the big game two years ago, with the Seahawks trying to reach their third straight Super Bowl. Seattle may have a case to win it all after finishing the season strong with a 36-6 road win in Arizona.

Here is a look at how all twelve teams odds look to win the Lombardi:

New England Patriots +250
Arizona Cardinals +270
Carolina Panthers +300
Denver Broncos +350
Seattle Seahawks +450
Pittsburgh Steelers +700
Kansas City Chiefs +900
Cincinnati Bengals +1250
Green Bay Packers +1550
Minnesota Vikings +2800
Washington Redskins +3000
Houston Texans +4200


When looking at who will win the AFC Championship, the Patriots are the favorite, with the Broncos nipping closely at their heels. The Steelers are next, with the Bengals, Chiefs and Texans at the bottom. Many experts are saying the Super Bowl is the NFC’s this year, but these six teams will have something to say about that. Here are the odds for each team in the AFC to win the conference championship:

New England Patriots +150
Denver Broncos +175
Pittsburgh Steelers +250
Cincinnati Bengals +650
Kansas City Chiefs +650
Houston Texans +2000


Odds are quite a bit closer on the NFC side, with the Cardinals, Panthers and Seahawks all paying +200 or less than to win, in that order. Rounding out the NFC Championship odds are the Packers, Vikings and Redskins. Have a look at their odds:

Arizona Cardinals +175
Carolina Panthers +180
Seattle Seahawks +200
Green Bay Packers +950
Minnesota Vikings +1000
Washington Redskins +1500


If you’d like to place a bet on the possible Super Bowl match-up, this is how the odds are shaping up right now:

Cardinals vs Patriots +600
Cardinals vs Broncos +700
Panthers vs Patriots +700
Panthers vs Broncos +700
Seahawks vs Broncos +700
Seahawks vs Patriots +800
Cardinals vs Steelers +850
Panthers vs Steelers +950
Seahawks vs Steelers +950


If you like long shots, here is the other end of the spectrum:

Redskins vs Texans +30000
Vikings vs Texans +30000
Packers vs Texans +30000
Redskins vs Bengals +17500
Redskins vs Chiefs +17500
Packers vs Bengals +17500
