Betting On The Next NFL Winner.

The new season of the NFL doesn’t actually start for several months yet, but that doesn’t mean the betting hasn’t started yet either. Indeed, the Baltimore Ravens had barely overcome the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl when the speculation started about which teams could be in contention for the upcoming season, and the odds have been available at the sports betting sites for some time now. At this stage the New England Patriots are rated the favourites to win both the AFC pennant and the Super Bowl, with odds of 3/1 and 7/1 respectively.

The beaten Super Bowl finalists also have low odds to go one better in the upcoming season – currently rated just 7/1 to win. However anyone who saw them outclassed for lengthy stretches of the Super Bowl by the Ravens will know that they need serious improvement in certain areas – notably red-zone offence – if they have a chance of claiming the title for a sixth time. The Denver Broncos are likely to prove another popular future bet for the Super Bowl, with odds of 7/1. They are expected to field much the same team as season, but having a motivated and fully fit Peyton Manning at quarterback is expected to make a real difference to their chances.

The odds of 16/1 on the Ravens to defend their title seem a little long given their impressive showing last time out, although it could be a reflection of the fact that they have lost key defensive stars Ed Reed and Ray Lewis, and they could be decent bet for those who want slightly longer odds and the chance of a better payout should their instincts prove correct. Green Bay, at 10/1 are also likely to be a popular futures choice just outside of the favourites – especially if they are able to add a bit of muscle to their defensive and offensive linesmen – which was where their chances suffered last time out.

With the Super Bowl offering upsets most years it could be an idea to wait until preseason to decide on this seasons winner. With the internet offering comprehensive statistics of each preseason game as well as live odds via online bookmakers, this may be the best idea to understand who this years winner may be. As well as offering a chance to bet on the up coming NFL season the online gambling industry also offer something else for fans of the NFL to do whilst waiting for the new season to get underway. By developing sports themed slot games online casinos offer fans of the NFL the opportunity to enjoy some sporting fun whilst making the tough call as to who will be Super Bowl champions this year.

NFL themed slots such as $5 Million Touchdown at are popular amongst fans of the NFL. These games offer plenty of excitement due to the combination of realistic background music, cheering sound effects and a comprehensive graphic display, making for an intense atmosphere. It’s a great way to get fans ready for the arrival of new season.
