Early Betting on the Super Bowl LIII

The final game which will determine just which team is the outright winner of the Super Bowl LII will be played on February the 3rd 2019, and it is being held at the impressive Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which is in Atlanta, Georgia.
The Super Bowl is one of the most watched sporting events in the USA and it is CBS that have the rights to show it live, and a very high percentage of viewers of that final, whether they are supporters of the final two teams or not, are going to be placing a bet on the team they think will win it.
As there are plenty of matches to be played off before the final, that does open up a huge and very impressive range of different bets and wager types you can play in the run up to this event, and this guide will give you an insight into the many different ways you can bet on the Super Bowl LII, and will also give you an insight into the individual odds on any one team winning it too.
Early Odds on the Super Bowl LIII
It is very true to say that your heart can overrule your head when it comes to betting on the Super Bowl, however by getting your bets placed as soon as the betting markets open, you stand a much greater chance of getting much higher odds than you would when the matches start to play off.
It is of course the New England Patriots that have been pencilled in as the early favourites to win the Super Bowl LIII at 5/1, but not far behind them are the Los Angeles Rams at 8/1 and the Philadelphia Eagles and the Pittsburgh Steelers both of whom are on offer at this early stage at odds of 9/1.
A couple of 12/1 teams include the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers, but any team could win so I wouldn’t put you off betting on the Houston Texans or the New Orleans Saints who can be bet on at odds of 16/1.
There will be money for the Jacksonville Jaguars at 20/1, and the Carolina Panthers, the Atlanta Falcons, the San Francisco 49ers, the Los Angeles Chargers and the Kansas City Chiefs are likely to attract plenty of money at their current odds of 25/1.
All other teams have odds between 33/1 and 80/1 with a few exceptions, and they are of course the outsiders, those being the Buffalo Bills at 125/1, the Arizona Cardinals and the New York Jets both on offer at 150/1, or for a totally speculative bet, if it is the highest odds you are looking for are the Miami Dolphins whose odds are huge currently at 200/1!
Bet on Individual American Football Matches
The additional betting opportunities available on American Football matches can seem quite alien to people who are not familiar with betting on such matches, so below I will give you an insight into the most commonly available bet types you can place on any such match.
The most popular type of bet is a simple money line bet as they are known, as when placing such a bet you will be presented with the win odds of each of the two teams playing against each other and can choose to bet on either team at the odds offered to you via a sportsbook or bookmakers site.
There will also be a point spread betting market too at most betting sites and when you make use of such a betting market it is basically a handicap type of betting market, and as such one team will have a certain number of points added to their score and the other team will have a certain number of points deducted from their score and the odds will reflect that handicap.
Another type of bet you can place is an over or under bet, when making use of such a betting market the betting site will give a predetermine number of points and you have to predict whether the final result will be over or under that number of points.
