Who Will Win The 2019 NFL Super Bowl?
The Philadelphia Eagles will try to become the first team to win back-to-back Super Bowls in 14 years when the 2018-19 season kicks off in early September.
The New England Patriots, who have played in seven of the last 19 Super Bowls, are the favorites (+600) to win their sixth Vince Lombardi Trophy on Feb. 3, 2019 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia (odds provided by TopBet). The Patriots lost Super Bowl LII last year against the Eagles, who are the second pick (+900) among the 32 teams.
There are 12 NFL franchises that have never won a Super Bowl: Atlanta (+2000), Arizona (+10000), Buffalo (+10000), Carolina (+5000), Cincinnati (+10000), Cleveland (+6000), Detroit (+6000), Houston (+2200), Jacksonville (+1600), Los Angeles Chargers (+1600), Minnesota (+1000) and Tennessee (+4000).
The Browns, Jaguars, Lions and Texans have never even reached the NFL championship.
Cleveland has won one game in the last two seasons (1-31) and yet there are six teams with higher odds to win Super Bowl LIII. Those teams must be really bad to be ranked below the lowly Browns.
Future Betting On Super Bowl LIII
Bettors must correctly select a team to win an event that takes place a later time. That is futures betting, and in this showcase it is correctly picking the winner of Super Bowl LIII.
The money wagered will be tied up until there is an outcome on Feb. 3, 2019 and bettors will receive fixed odds when they place the wager. The future odds are normally updated and changed on a weekly basis and wagers can be placed throughout the season.
How much will a winning bet return? That depends on the team you play and what the odds are today (odds provided by TopBet).
For the favorites, the Patriots (+600) would return $700 based on a $100 bet ($600 profit + $100 bet = $700 total return). For the longest shot on the board, the New York Jets are one of a half dozen teams at +10000. The Jets would return $10,100 ($10,000 profit + $100 bet = $10,100 total return).
Top 5 Picks For Super Bowl LIII
5. New Orleans Saints (+1500)
Just three teams scored more points last season than the Saints, who were 7-1 at home and had a +122 point differential.
After two excellent draft classes, the Saints have a bunch of young stars and a future Hall of Famer in Drew Brees to get them the ball. Their defense ranked among the league leaders with 42 sacks and 25 takeaways.
The roster returns 21 starters from a team that won eight straight and claimed the NFC South title a year ago. This may be Brees’ last chance to capture his second ring.
4. New England Patriots (+600)
The Brady-Belichick dynasty enters its 19th campaign. That means the Patriots will be among the major contenders in the AFC and favorites to win it all.
However, there is still one growing concern from last season. The Patriots allowed 41 points and 538 yards to the Eagles in Super Bowl LII last February, and they didn’t do much to fix the defense in the offseason.
An easy road in the AFC East will once again put the Patriots in the playoffs, but there is much better value to bet on a different Super Bowl winner than New England, even though TB12 is the greatest of all time.
3. Philadelphia Eagles (+900)
The Super Bowl champions are a deep, talented squad. The addition of Michael Bennett on the defensive line and the return of Carson Wentz from injury make the champs an even better team. It doesn’t hurt that Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles is still with the club and will start in Week 1.
The ride to the title last year will give them even more confidence as the Eagles face one of the toughest schedules in the league.
Philly is built for success right now with a great coach and young quarterback. Count on another exciting run in the playoffs this season as well.
2. Houston Texans (+2200)
This pick hinges on the health of their young QB and defensive superstar, who are both returning from injuries. An improved performance out of their secondary wouldn’t hurt either.
The Texans have won the AFC South in four of the last seven seasons and defensive end J.J. Watt was named AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award three times in his first five seasons.
For the first time, the Texans now have a franchise quarterback in Deshaun Watson. Even though Houston has never made it to the Super Bowl, the Texans are building a powerhouse around their dynamic leader.
1. Los Angeles Rams (+900)
Sean McVay stunned the league in his first season as head coach by taking the 4-12 Rams to a division champion and playoff contender.
Now, they have all the pieces to take it all. Management swung three trades for All-Pro players and then signed another All-Pro in free agency in the offseason. The Rams were not a Top 10 defense last year, but these new additions should make a huge difference.
The Rams will be tested early, especially since two of their first four games are on a national stage in prime time.
The highest-scoring team in the league last season will steal headlines from LeBron in L.A. and finally win their first Super Bowl in 18 years.
