Super Bowl Odds: When to Handicap Them at SBG Global

December 1, 2010 NFL Football

The Super Bowl odds are released about two weeks before the Super Bowl is actually played, meaning Super Bowl betting enthusiasts have ample time to look for value in the Super Bowl odds.

Consequently, bettors can be especially circumspect when analyzing the Super Bowl odds and ensure that wagers on the Super Bowl odds are placed with complete confidence. Nevertheless, gamblers should not wait too long to wager on the Super Bowl odds or they may discover that the Super Bowl odds have shifted and previous Super Bowl betting value has diminished.

The Super Bowl  odds are available for wagering for a much longer time period than normal NFL odds, simply due to the two week break between the conference championship games and the Super Bowl. As a result, Super bowl betting enthusiasts have about twice as much time as they are accustomed to when handicapping the Super Bowl odds. Additionally, the Super Bowl odds obviously involve only one game, while during the regular season gamblers must handicap more than a dozen games for each Sunday. Therefore, gamblers can devote much more time to handicapping the Super Bowl odds than they would normally spend handicapping a single matchup. This benefit is especially significant because many gamblers risk more in their Super Bowl betting than they would risk on a normal matchup. Because there is so much time to analyze the Super Bowl odds, it is logical to take one’s time and handicap the Super Bowl odds very carefully while considering a range of different factors that may influence the game.

However, it is usually unwise to spend too long handicapping the Super Bowl odds and then only place one’s wagers on Super Bowl Sunday in the hours before the game begins. Even if one wants to handicap the Super Bowl odds extremely carefully, nobody will need a full two weeks to do so, meaning bettors who place their wagers in the final hours before kickoff have likely procrastinated in handicapping the Super Bowl odds. The problem with waiting too long to place one’s wagers on the Super Bowl odds is that the Super Bowl odds may change between the time when they are initially released and the time when the game begins. Depending on which side you will wager on, any changes in the Super Bowl odds may increase or decrease the Super Bowl betting value you receive from the odds.

However, by handicapping the Super Bowl odds early and monitoring any early changes in the Super Bowl odds one can sometimes make predictions about future changes in the odds and use these predictions to choose the best moment to place a bet.
