Super Bowl Odds & Ends at SBG Global

December 1st, 2010 NFL Football

Super Bowl odds have the New England Patriots nearly a two touchdown favorite against the New York Giants.

Super Bowl odds show the total at 53.5.  Super Bowl odds also include many different wagering options including propositions.

Super Bowl odds show that New England is a healthy favorite for good reason.  The Patriots are 18-0 and have the best offense in the history of the NFL.  They also have arguably the best quarterback in NFL history on their side along with possibly the best coach in NFL history.  What does that all add up to? In Super Bowl betting it probably adds up to a Patriots’ win. 

Super Bowl betting gamblers have more than just the side and total to consider in Super Bowl odds.  One interesting proposition on the Super Bowl odds board is which player will win the MVP.  In the past 41 Super Bowls a quarterback has won the award just over half of the time (21.)  It makes sense then that Tom Brady is the favorite to win this year’s award in Super Bowl betting.  It also doesn’t hurt that Brady is a two-time Super Bowl MVP already.  If you are looking at value in Super Bowl odds you may not want to take Brady at Super Bowl odds of 1-2 or less.  Keep in mind that receivers have won the award in recent years with Deion Branch and Hines Ward taking honors.  Donte’ Stallworth might be an interesting choice if you are looking at Super Bowl betting in terms of the MVP.

If you are looking at other options on the Super Bowl odds board you may want to look at the quarters.  The last time these two teams played at the end of the regular season they scored 27 points in the second quarter.  Will that be the case in this year’s Super Bowl?  Most Super Bowl odds have the second quarter as the one in which the most points are likely to be scored. The first quarter is the favorite in Super Bowl odds to have the fewest points.  The quarter options are just one of the many Super Bowl props that are on the betting board for Sunday.
