To be exact it is never too early to discuss NFL betting even with training camps not opening until late July. Concurrently the three things you can count on in life remain the same when it comes to pro football. Death, taxes and the New England Patriots seem like the surest things of all. Indeed, the defending Super Bowl champion Patriots are once again the popular pick to win Super Bowl LIV at 6/1. Following at 8/1 are the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams. Extending top favorites are the New Orleans Saints at 12/1.
Free Agent Signings
Free agent signings have been the biggest NFL betting news since the Patriots beat the Rams in the last Super Bowl. In view of their needs at wide receiver did the Pats make moves. Phillip Dorsett was re-signed. And former Redskins Maurice Harris and Bruce Ellington were brought to the fold. However, looming large for Bill Belichick and crew is the retirement of Rob Gronkowski. Gronk has decided to get out while he can still walk.
Now it’s important to recall that Kansas City took New England to overtime in the AFC championship game. In fact, the Chiefs had the winning Sports betting ticket in hand but had to surrender it due to an offsides call. Former Browns and Jaguars running back Carlos Hyde will arrive at KC to bolster position depth.
New Orleans also signed veteran running back Latavius Murray to take over for Mark Ingram. Additionally, the Saints are still looking for help at tight end. Backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will return after flirting with Miami.
Miami Dolphins and Denver Broncos
On the whole few teams have made more news than the Miami Dolphins and Denver Broncos. NFL Betting futures have the Broncos at 50/1 and the Dolphins as a 250/1 long shot. Ryan Tannehill has departed the Dolphins for Tennessee after a star-crossed career in South Florida. Meanwhile Case Keenum was told to get lost by the Broncos after being proclaimed their savior one year ago. Keenum departed for Washington with Joe Flacco arriving to Denver from Baltimore.
On this occasion its important to look at the landscape of the Mile High City. Certainly, John Elway remains an iconic hero that won two Super Bowl championships as Broncos quarterback. Additionally, he led the acquisition of Peyton Manning, who led them to their only other Super Bowl title in the 2015 season. But since that time Elway has been exposed as a less than thorough executive.
Denver head coach Vance Joseph went bust in two years on the job. As a result, Elway was forced to fire him and bring in Vic Fangio. The Keenum experiment was just as futile as he was overwhelmed as the man charged to save the franchise and its offense. While Flacco has declined badly as Ravens quarterback he is probably an upgrade over Keenum. Owing to all of these problems is a price of 60/1 for the Broncos to win the Super Bowl.
Now Tennessee is a 70/1 choice to win the Super Bowl. The arrival Tannehill is quite peculiar for the Titans. Encompassing that is the fact that Marcos Mariota is projected to remain the starter. Despite his body becoming more brittle in an NFL that mauls mobile quarterbacks. Further, Tannehill has regressed badly in his development.
