How the Draft Affected Super Bowl Betting

The Patriots were +325 favorites around February, after Super Bowl 52. Then, the Patriots decided to ship WR Brandin Cooks to the L.A. Rams.

The Patriots odds floated up to +600. At that point, New England was still the favorite. Their odds have taken a slight dip because they drafted 2 players in Round 1, guard Isaiah Wynn and RB Sony Michel.

Wynn figures to protect the rush up the middle against Tom Brady. Michel is a highlight film waiting to happen.

The Eagles betting odds didn’t move after the NFL Draft. Why would they? Philly traded their Round 1 pick to the Baltimore Ravens.

The Rams, Steelers, and Green Bay Packers have stood pat. So has the San Francisco 49’ers who were at +1500 before the Draft.

The Minnesota Vikings’ odds did take a hit, though. The Vikings went up from a +1000 choice to a +1200 choice.

The reason? Minnesota drafted UCF cornerback Mike Hughes in Round 1. Hughes is a good player. However, the Vikings could have used any number of available offensive linemen to protect new QB Kirk Cousins.

The Saints’ odds drifted from +2000 to +2200. The reason for New Orleans’ upward odds movement is due to them giving up the farm to draft DE Marcus Davenport.

Most NFL Draft analysts agree that New Orleans spent too much to grab Davenport.

Houston’s odds movement is more a reflection of how both the Atlanta Falcons and Oakland Raiders fell out of favor after the draft. Both Atlanta and Oakland were at +2500.

They’re both now at +3000. Atlanta drafted a wide receiver in Round 1, Calvin Ridley, even though plenty of talented defensive players were on the board.

Oakland drafted offensive Kolton Miller. That means the Raiders passed on two of the most highly regarded defenders in this NFL Draft:  S Derwin James and LB Tremaine Edmunds.

Online bookie agents should pay attention to action on teams to win Super Bowl 53.

As always, agents should set max betting limits depending on what happens in their sportsbooks, not what happens in Vegas sportsbooks.
