Pats Headline Super Bowl 52 Opening Odds
- Updated: February 8, 2017
Now with five Super Bowl championships in their pocket, the New England Patriots enter the NFL offseason as the clear betting favorites on the odds to win the Super Bowl next year too.
The Patriots are listed as the +400 favorites on the Super Bowl 52 odds, after Tom Brady and company mounted a massive comeback to defeat the Atlanta Falcons at Super Bowl 51 on Sunday night. That was the fifth Super Bowl win for the Patriots, all with Brady at the helm, and their second in the past three seasons. New England now trails only the Pittsburgh Steelers in all-time Super Bowl wins; the Steelers have six Super Bowl titles in their history.
Pittsburgh is at +1200 on the Super Bowl 52 odds, putting them in a tie with the Falcons and the Green Bay Packers on those opening betting futures. The Steelers came up short against the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game, falling 36-17 at Gillette Stadium, and might end up with some summer intrigue as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger dances around retirement.
The Falcons will be looking to regroup next season after their Super Bowl collapse, while Aaron Rodgers and the Packers got blasted 44-21 by Atlanta in the NFC Championship Game after upsetting the Dallas Cowboys 34-31 in the Divisional Round of the NFC playoffs.
But Dallas sits second to only the Patriots at +750 on the Super Bowl 52 opening odds despite that loss in the NFC title game. The Cowboys surpassed expectations this past year behind rookies Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott, posting the best record in the NFC at 13-3.
Broncos, Raiders, Seahawks Next on Futures
Looking past those top five teams on the Super Bowl 52 odds, the Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders, and Seattle Seahawks are all listed at +1600 to win the championship next season.
Denver followed up its Super Bowl victory in 2015 by missing the playoffs altogether last season, and might look to upgrade at quarterback from Trevor Siemian in the year ahead. The Raiders turned in a 12-4 season in 2016 but lost starting quarterback Derek Carr to injury and subsequently fell 27-14 to the Houston Texans in their Wild Card Weekend playoff matchup. The Seahawks lost 36-20 to the Falcons in their matchup in the Divisional Round.
From there it’s the Minnesota Vikings at +2000 on the Super Bowl 52 odds, followed by the Carolina Panthers, Indianapolis Colts, Kansas City Chiefs, and New York Giants all at +2500, the Arizona Cardinals at +3300, and the Texans and the Tennessee Titans both set at +4000.
The New York Jets, Chicago Bears, Cleveland Browns, and San Francisco 49ers are the longshots on the early Super Bowl 52 odds, with each of those teams set at a line of +10000.
