Yes, I know it’s only March 4th. Yes, I know that the Superbowl was only one month ago. Yes, I know the next Superbowl is still 48 weeks away. Yes, I know that we haven’t even had the draft yet. Yes, I know that we still have an entire pre, regular and post-season to play before we know who will be facing off in Superbowl 53. But will any of this stop me from looking at the odds for Superbowl 53? Of course not!
In fact now is probably the best time to take a look, especially at the teams who are chasing Kirk Cousins’ signature. Right now, you can get the Minnesota Vikings at 16/1, tremendous value for a team that was one game from the Superbowl. If they manage to secure Cousins services you can guarantee those odds to be halved.
The same can be said for the Denver Broncos. Right now they look like an unfancied outsider at 40/1. But if Elway gets his man the outlook on this team complete changes in 2018.
The Arizona Cardinals are all the way out at 100/1. Now, this has to be worth a tenner. Why? Well, they could get Cousins and they will get David Johnson back. With these two they automatically become a player in the NFC.
Away from the Cousins situation, the one bet that doesn’t scream value is the Green Bay Packers at 8/1. We all know that A-Rod is a terrific player and that they looked terrible when he went down last season but third favourites? I think someone had the green and gold tinted glasses on here.
Other teams that look worth a few quid at this time of the year:
Texans, Rams, Jaguars and Raiders.
