Super Bowl LII is only 363 days away, so get your bets in now. The odds are already available via Bovada, and the advantage you have right now is that the Sportsbooks are as clueless as the rest of us. At this point last year, the Atlanta Falcons were listed as a 40/1 shot to win Super Bowl LI.
Value can be found if you think a team is primed to bust out in 2017.
Here are the odds for all 32 teams, along with notes on which teams look like the best extremely early bets to land you a huge future payout.
POOR VALUE: New England Patriots: 5/1 — It’s been over a decade since a team won back-to-back titles. And yes, that team was New England. But Super Bowl hangovers are real and Tom Brady will be 40. Doesn’t seem worth it at 5/1.
POOR VALUE: Dallas Cowboys: 9/1 — This is a sucker’s bet. The Cowboys could be really good, but there’s also a strong chance Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott encounter sophomore slumps.
GOOD VALUE: Green Bay Packers: 9/1 — If you’re going to pounce on a team with a great quarterback that should have a lot of momentum entering the season, this is it.
POOR VALUE: Pittsburgh Steelers: 12/1 — Too much turmoil. Too much uncertainly surrounding their top three players.
POOR VALUE: Atlanta Falcons: 14/1 — With no way of knowing how they’ll react to the most devastating collapse in NFL history, I wouldn’t recommend jumping on these choke-artists with so-so odds.
GREAT VALUE: Denver Broncos: 16/1 — This is intriguing because we’re still likely looking at the best defense in the NFL. If they can get back into a 2015-level groove, 16/1 is enticing.
TERRIBLE VALUE: Minnesota Vikings: 16/1 — Sam Bradford isn’t winning a Super Bowl and we have no clue what’s going to happen with Adrian Peterson and Teddy Bridgewater. Hard pass.
GOOD VALUE: Oakland Raiders: 16/1 — Are we forgetting about the tear this young, stacked team was on before Derek Carr broke his leg?
GREAT VALUE: Seattle Seahawks: 16/1 — You really have to think they’re finally going to address that wretched offensive line. And if they do, a team that is always in the mix could definitely land back in the Super Bowl.
INDIFFERENT: Carolina Panthers: 25/1 — The feels about right. The Panthers were a mess in 2016, but they’ve still got Cam Newton and a lot of talent on both sides of the ball. In a tough division, 25/1 makes sense. It’s the kind of bet I’d happily make if I were a Carolina fan.
TERRIBLE VALUE: Indianapolis Colts: 25/1 — Come on! Same odds as the Panthers, Chiefs and Giants? Andrew Luck or not, they’re a mess.
INDIFFERENT: Kansas City Chiefs: 25/1 — The odds make sense for a better-than-average team. But I still wouldn’t touch it, because they have a potentially rocky offseason ahead.
GOOD VALUE: New York Giants: 25/1 — Never count Eli Manning out, especially with a good defense. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if the G-Men won it all in 2017.
POOR VALUE: Arizona Cardinals: 33/1 — The ship has sailed, man. They’re on the brink of a rebuild.
GOOD VALUE: Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 33/1 — They were a breakout team in 2016. With a young core, they should be even better next season.
GREAT VALUE: Baltimore Ravens: 40/1 — They had one of the best defenses in the NFL in 2016, and they’ve got a quarterback who — despite being overrated — has won a title. 40/1 is silly.
POOR VALUE: Detroit Lions: 40/1 — A lot of folks will be tempted by this because the Lions made the playoffs in 2016, but that was a lucky mirage of a season for Detroit. Back to earth in 2017.
GREAT VALUE: Houston Texans: 40/1 — Did you see how freakin’ good that defense was in 2016? Well, take that and add J.J. freakin’ Watt. This would be a great bet if you think they might go out and get a quarterback like Tony freakin’ Romo. Freakin’.
INDIFFERENT: Cincinnati Bengals: 50/1 — They’re a good team, but does anybody really think they have a Super Bowl in them?
GOOD VALUE: Miami Dolphins: 50/1 — Could Ryan Tannehill become the Matt Ryan of 2017? He’s got a lot of support, and his team made the playoffs in 2016. Even in the AFC East, this team has a better than 50-to-1 chance.
GOOD VALUE: New Orleans Saints: 50/1 — The defense was slightly better this year, and they’ve got Drew Brees. Nothing else really matters when the odds are this long.
GOOD VALUE: Philadelphia Eagles: 50/1 — You’d be betting on some offensive upgrades, but any team with a talented quarterback is a solid bet at 50/1.
GOOD VALUE: Tennessee Titans: 50/1 — See: Philadelphia Eagles.
GREAT VALUE: Washington Redskins 50/1 — They’ve put together back-to-back winning seasons and the underrated Kirk Cousins should be back. I really can’t believe they’re paying 50/1.
INDIFFERENT: Buffalo Bills 66/1 — Seems like an OK $10 bet if you’re a Bills fan. $660 for a miracle, and the team isn’t bad.
POOR VALUE: Jacksonville Jaguars 66/1 — The Jacksonville Jaguars are not winning the 2017 Super Bowl.
GOOD VALUE: Los Angeles Chargers 66/1 — They’re better than this on paper. If you think the move won’t hurt them, this is a good bet.
IGNORE: Los Angeles Rams: 75/1, New York Jets: 75/1, Chicago Bears: 100/1, Cleveland Browns: 150/1, San Francisco 49ers: 150/1: These five teams are in rebuild mode. You’d be wasting your money.
