Super Bowl Odds 2021

 


One of the most popular betting markets in all of sports is betting on the Super Bowl, partially because it can be (and is) wagered on all year long. The biggest event after NFL Free Agency in the offseason is the NFL Draft, which causes quite a bit of odds movement for the Super Bowl betting market.

After the NFL Draft, odds have moved for quite a few teams as the bulk of the offseason is over in terms of player movement. Let’s take a look at the latest Super Bowl odds, the movement before and after the draft, and which teams saw the biggest move up on the leaderboard.

Super Bowl Odds Movement after NFL Draft

The 2021 NFL Draft was a great one, as it may quite possibly have been one of those years where the next class of NFL quarterbacks entered the league. With five potential starting quarterbacks being drafted in the first round, some of the better teams in the NFL adding big-time talent, the odds have shifted. Here’s a look at the Super Bowl odds before and after the NFL Draft.

Improvement after the 2021 NFL Draft 

There are nine teams that saw odds movement in their favor after the NFL Draft, for one reason or another. Here they are, with odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Team SB Odds Post-Draft SB Odds Pre-Draft Difference
DEN Broncos +2500 +6600 -4,100
NE Patriots +2800 +4000 -1,200
ATL Falcons +5000 +6000 -1,000
CHI Bears +5000 +6000 -1,000
WAS Football Team +5000 +6000 -1,000
MIN Vikings +3300 +4000 -700
DAL Cowboys +2500 +3000 -500
CLE Browns +1600 +2000 -400
TB Buccaneers +650 +900 -250

As you can see, the biggest mover was the Denver Broncos. That was due to what happened just before the NFL Draft, as rumors of Aaron Rodgers being on the move this offseason. News of the Broncos being potentially the top suitor for Rodgers certainly is the driver behind this movement, as many sportsbooks want to protect against a potential move.

The biggest movers were:

  • Broncos from +6600 to +2500
  • Patriots +4000 to +2800
  • Falcons +6000 to +5000
  • Bears +6000 to +5000
  • Washington +6000 to +5000

The Patriots and Bears Super Bowl odds movement is certainly due to their draft picks, as both teams added quarterbacks. The Patriots drafted former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones, who will compete with Cam Newton for the starting job in New England. The Bears jumped as well, as they traded to get Justin Fields to be their quarterback of the future (and present). In addition, Chicago had a great draft adding some offensive talent to surround Fields.

 

Packers Super Bowl Odds fall after Aaron Rodgers news

The most significant negative movement for the Super Bowl odds was from the Green Bay Packers, as the Aaron Rodgers news sent a ripple effect through the NFL. Before the draft, the Packers were +1000 to win the Super Bowl, now they are +2000. That is just on speculation about Rodgers being on the move.

The Packers were not the only team to see negative movement, but they were the talk of the draft from a team perspective. Without Aaron Rodgers, the Packers really have no chance to win the Super Bowl. Just the speculation caused their odds to be cut in half. Even the Packers’ win total fell.

Here is a look at all the teams that saw negative odds movement after the NFL Draft, including the Texans, Raiders, Lions, Bengals and more.

Team SB Odds Post-Draft SB Odds Pre-Draft Difference
HOU Texans +17500 +12500 5,000
LV Raiders +7500 +5000 2,500
DET Lions +15000 +12500 2,500
CIN Bengals +10000 +8000 2,000
NY Jets +10000 +8000 2,000
CAR Panthers +6600 +5000 1,600
GB Packers +2000 +1000 1,000
PIT Steelers +4000 +3000 1,000
NO Saints +2800 +2000 800
TEN Titans +3300 +2800 500
JAX Jaguars +8000 +7500 500
SEA Seahawks +2500 +2200 300
IND Colts +2800 +2500 300
MIA Dolphins +2800 +2500 300
LA Chargers +3300 +3000 300
BUF Bills +1400 +1200 200
BAL Ravens +1500 +1300 200

The teams that saw the biggest odds drops after the NFL Draft were:

  • Texans +12500 to +17500
  • Raiders +5000 to +7500
  • Lions +12500 to +15000
  • Bengals +8000 to +10000
  • Jets +8000 to +10000

Of course, none of these teams likely had a chance to win the Super Bowl anyway, but this reflects how some legal sportsbooks and the betting public feel about those specific drafts. The largest fall was the Houston Texans, as they did not have a great draft if you read between the lines.

Before the NFL Draft, the Texans were +12500 to win. They had no chance. But with their first pick (in the third round), the Texans took a quarterback. This means one thing and one thing only, it is quite clear with all the needs in Houston that they do not feel that Deshaun Watson will play another snap in Houston. Whether that means a trade, release, suspension or any number of things is irrelevant. Legal sportsbooks have raised the Texans odds to the worst in all of football at +17500 to win the Super Bowl.
