By Posted on No tags 0

Who are the Super Bowl 53 betting favorites? Are there any smart picks? Sleepers?

Fake football is almost over. The quest for Super Bowl 53 begins on September 6th, 2018. It is a perfect time to take a look at the current Super Bowl 53 odds, contenders and favorite picks.

Super Bowl 53 Odds & Picks

Picking a Super Bowl winner with 157 days before kick-off is a complicated thing. Preseason football tells us very little about how teams will perform when games count. Plus there are so many unknowns. Injuries. Breakout players. Weather. Suspensions. Let’s take a look at the Super Bowl 53 odds, betting favorites, contenders, and possible sleeper picks.

Super Bowl 53 Betting Favorites

  • New England Patriots +625
  • Philadelphia Eagles +900
  • Pittsburgh Steelers +1100
  • Los Angeles Rams +1150
  • Minnesota Vikings +1200

Every one of the Super Bowl 53 betting favorites has roster issues except for the Minnesota Vikings. More on them later.

The Patriots lost top wideout Julian Edelman for four games after a PED suspension. QB Carson Wentz isn’t a sure bet to start for the first couple of games this season. RB Le’Veon Bell hasn’t reported for the Steelers with a contract dispute. The Rams leagues top defensive player, Aaron Donald, is waiting on a new contract as well.

Now back to the Vikings who are primed to be the best Super Bowl 53 bet. RB Dalvin Cook is back after a knee injury derailed his breakout season last year. Combine that with QB Kirk Cousins arrival and everything points towards the Vikings being the smartest bet to win Super Bowl 53.

Super Bowl 53 Betting Contenders

  • Green Bay Packers +1350
  • New Orleans Saints +1550
  • Atlanta Falcons +1675
  • Jacksonville Jaguars +2200
  • Houston Texans +2250
  • Los Angeles Chargers +2250

Windows for the Packers and Saints to win a Super Bowl are closing. The Falcons had their shot two years ago and lost the Super Bowl to the Patriots.

The Jaguars, Texans, and Chargers are young and hungry but need to get lucky to win Super Bowl 52. Jacksonville won 10 games last year, but Blake Bortles is not a Super Bowl caliber quarterback. Houston has the talent, but injuries have killed their momentum in recent years. Then there are the Chargers who have the talent on both sides of the ball to to be a sleeper Super Bowl 53 pick. The Bolts will pay out a healthy +2250 if they win the Lombardy Trophy.

Super Bowl 53 Bet If You Feel Lucky

  • San Francisco 49ers +2700
  • Kansas City Chiefs +3300
  • Dallas Cowboys +3300
  • Carolina Panthers +4000
  • Oakland Raiders +4000

The 49ers, Chiefs, Cowboys, Panthers, and Raiders all have question marks at talent positions. Do you see any of these teams being a smart Super Bowl 53 bets even with the value odds?
