You don't just play to win the game—you play to win the Super Bowl. Thus, if you’re not worrying about your team’s odds of winning the Lombardi Trophy, you’re doing it wrong.
And who knows? You might just find a place or two to make some money.
Each slide presents the Vegas odds for winning the Super Bowl as they stood at the time of publishing. For those who don't fully understand how to read the odds, here's a quick crash course.
If your team has 33-to-1 odds to win the Super Bowl, that means a $1 bet would yield $33 if it won. Therefore, the higher the odds, the worse chance there is of winning, but the higher the payout if you win. And if the odds are too low, Vegas believes your team will win much more than I do.
The key is to find value bets—bets on teams with odds given by the Vegas oddsmakers that are too high compared to what they should be. Those opportunities offer the best chances to make money.
