The Odds-On Favorite Bet To Win Super Bowl 52: New England Patriots 3/1
It’s no wonder the Patriots (14-2) are prohibitive favorites to win Super Bowl 52 seeing as how they won Super Bowl 51 despite the fact that Tom Brady missed the first four-game a part of his Deflategate suspension. That Pats ranked a stellar third in scoring (27.6 ppg) and even more impressive first in points allowed (15.6 ppg) despite not having any really big name players besides Brady. Whether you’re a member of Patriots nation or hate them like they’re a lifelong enemy, it’ easy to see why New England is favored to win it all this coming season.
The Smart Pick To Win Super Bowl 52: Seattle Seahawks 12/1
For me, the Seattle Seahawks (10-5-1) are a smart pick to win Super Bowl 52 simply based on the fact that they’ve been a perennial playoff participant and title contender ever since Russell Wilson became their starting quarterback back in 2012. Sure, Seattle’s Legion of Boom defense has lost some of its oomph and their offense often leave a lot to be desired, but lest anyone forget, Seattle finished the 2016 season ranked 12th in total offense while their defense ranked a fantastic fifth overall and third in points allowed (18.2 ppg). If the Seahawks can improve their offense just a bit in 2017, I see no reason why they shouldn’t challenge for a berth – and victory – I upper Bowl 52.
The Value Pick To Win Super Bowl 52: Denver Broncos 20/1
I know the Denver Broncos (9-7) took a step backwards last season after winning Super Bowl 50, but I love the value they’re offering heading into 2017, seeing as how they hired a hotshot head coach in former Dolphins defensive coordinator Vance Joseph and still have an elite defense that ranked fourth overall and fourth in points allowed (18.6 ppg). If the Broncos get some decent play at quarterback out of Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch, they could surprise this coming season.
The Dark Horse Pick To Win Super Bowl 52: Carolina Panthers 30/1
The Panthers (6-10) fell hard last season after reaching upper Bowl 50, but I believe they could challenge for another appearance in Super Bowl 52 if they get back to playing defense like they have for the vast majority of head coach Ron Rivera’s tenure in Carolina and get some better protection for Cam Newton and a rushing attack that fell off in a big way a year ago. Sure, the Panthers would appear to have a long way to go to get back t being a legitimate Super Bowl title contender, but prior to last season, no one, and I do mean absolutely no one, had the Atlanta Falcons winning the NFC last season and stranger things have happened in today’s worst-to-first NFL.
