    Updated Super Bowl Odds (07/01/13)

    By John Ewing

    In the wake of the Aaron Hernandez saga and with NFL training camps kicking off in less than a month, it is time for a Super Bowl futures update. Lines courtesy of Bovada.lv.

    There has been a shift in the league's perceived power structure since we first posted Super Bowl XLVIII odds. Of the 32 NFL teams, 20 have seen their odds change. Only four teams have seen their odds improve.

    The San Francisco 49ers (6/1) and the Denver Broncos (13/2) remain the favorites to win the Super Bowl. The Jacksonville Jaguars continue to bring up the rear with the worst odds at 200/1.

    Below we look at a few teams with the greatest change in their odds, both good and bad.

    Moving on up

    St. Louis Rams

    Odds Shift: 60/1 to 40/1

    The Rams seem to be making all the right moves. St. Louis signed Jake Long in free agency to sure up their offensive line. The Rams also crushed the draft giving Sam Bradford needed weapons in Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey.

    Bookmakers' take (per Bovada.lv): 49ers, even as favorites at 6/1 odds, have taken twice as much money as Seattle and ten times as much as St. Louis.

    Seattle Seahawks

    Odds Shift: 9/1 to 8/1

    Seattle is no longer a surprise team and with that comes lofty expectation. The Seahawks offseason moves reflect this; the additions of Percy Harvin and Cliff Avril will improve both sides of the ball. Seattle was a top-10 team in both points scored and points allowed last season.

    Bookmakers' take: The noted additions by Seattle have lowered their odds but so to has injuries to the 49ers, like Michael Crabtree.

    In reverse

    New England Patriots

    Odds Shift: 8/1 to 17/2

    New England had two of the best tight ends in the NFL last season but Hernandez is now gone and Rob Gronkowski has had three arm surgeries and a back surgery over the last year. Wes Welker left in free agency and the cupboard that was once full on offense is looking a little thin.

    Bookmakers' take: Bovada.lv was already high on Patriots at 8/1, Hernandez being out hurt but Gronkowski's status is the primary driver.

    Chicago Bears

    Odds Shift: 25/1 to 33/1

    Question marks hover over this team. What will the team look like with a new head coach, their first since 2004? Will the defense remain stout without captain Brian Urlacher? Can the offensive line keep Jay Cutler upright?

    Bookmakers' take: As of this morning the line is back down to 28/1, there has been a lot of money recently on the Bears.

    Where is the money going?

    The 49ers have taken more money then any other team. The rest of the top five backed teams include: Denver, Seattle, Atlanta, and Green Bay. The teams taking the fewest bets: Jets, Bills, Jaguars, Titans, and Raiders.

    05/10/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now into its second month, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides and totals continue to remain extremely profitable despite a recent run of bad variance to start May. The Predictalator's record of 272-250 on sides and totals this season doesn't look all that impressive, but that's because the simulations have sided with underdogs more often than favorites. Through May 9, the Predictalator has generated $547 for an average $50 bettor. "Normal" or better sides, totals, and run lines (our strongest edges) are 14-10 (+$118) season-to-date.

    The NBA Playoffs continue on in the Second Round and the Predictalator has been profitable on both sides and totals in this year's postseason. Despite being just 16-19 (45.7%) ATS in the NBA Postseason, the Predictalator has generated $46 of total profit, which is a testament to our play value recommendations. Totals have been the real moneymaker in this postseason though, as all playabale totals are 19-15 (55.9%) for a solid profit of $168.

    The NHL Playoffs have featured some very tight lines posted by oddsmakers, which has led to lower volume for the Predictalator. That hasn't let to less profits though. The Predictalator has posted 10 NHL positions (ML, O/U, or PL) in May, going 8-2 (80%) on those positions for a profit of $87. It is rare to find a big edge in the NHL this late in the year, but the Predictalator continues to chip away on small edges to provide solid returns.
