Super Bowl Liii

NFL Futures, Early Super Bowl LIII Winner & a NFL Week 3 Preview

Before we get into the early pick to win Super Bowl LIII let dabble into a couple of other things.

NFL futures continue to update as the season progresses. If you fancy yourself a NFL prognosticator, there is some great value to be had. Sure, there are a ton of factors to consider. It can include present play to unforeseen injuries to schedule, and many other things.

By looking into your crystal ball, profiting on the Super Bowl LIII winner is a real possibility at this time. Lets take a look at where you can find some value and see where the numbers are heading into Week 3.

Los Angeles Rams +500

At +500, the Rams are currently the favorite to win the Super Bowl. The Rams started the season with a 33-13 win in Oakland on Monday Night Football. They then destroyed the Cardinals 34-0 in Week 2.

That is only the beginning as there are many reasons to be all in on the Rams.

Although it is a small sample size, the Rams are currently 3rd on overall defense and 9th in overall offense. They have a lot of team depth unless the injury bug hits.

With a ground game led by Todd Gurley, and a talented wide receiver core with big play ability, the Rams will be able to score with the best of them. Brandin Cooks leads the team with 12 receptions for 246 yards.

That is good for an average of 20.5 yards per catch.

Not only can their offense move the ball, but they are as deep as any team on the defensive side of the ball. Super Bowl LIII Odds at +500 is not providing much value.

BUT at this point in the 2018 National Football League season, the Los Angeles Rams are a good bet to be representing the NFC in this year’s Super Bowl.

New England Patriots +600

Even with the Patriots Week 2 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, New England is still the second favorite to win the Super Bowl. They are also the favorite to win the AFC at +250.

Oddsmakers take everything into account. With Edelman returning from his 4-week suspension and the addition of Josh Gordon, watching the Pats rise up the power rankings is a near given.

What is a Pay Per Head | What do they offer | How does it Work?

The Pats are 25th in total team defense. They are giving up the 27th most rushing yards per game and 23rd amount of passing yards per game. Knowing Coach Bill, he will find a way to right the ship.

I am fading the Pats in this futures category for now.

Jacksonville Jaguars +850

Right now, the Jags are my favorite to win the AFC. With Odds at +850 I think they are providing some nice value. The Jags are the Rams of the AFC. They have a deep, athletic defense and an offense that is improving.

Vegas Odds vs. Offshore Odds, What’s Better, What’s the Difference?

The Jags’ win last week against the Pats, happened without their star running back. Leonard Fournette is questionable to play in Week 3 versus the Titans due to a hamstring injury.

It will be a surprise if he doesn’t suit up, but the point is they got it done without him.

The Pats put the game in Blake Bortles’ hands and he ran with it. He threw for almost 400 yards with 4 TDs. Bortles added another 35 yards on the ground on 6 carries.

If the Jags keep getting production from all over the defense they will prosper. Keelan Cole should continue to improve as a receiver and get better.

There is no reason to think they will regress from their AFC Championship appearance last season.

Philadelphia Eagles +1150

I could not leave the Eagles off a list that was talking about Super Bowl LIII futures value. Only two short weeks ago the Eagles were a the top of most power rankings. That was mostly by default as returning champs.

They are currently 5th in ESPN’s power rankings, and 6th on the Super Bowl odds list at +1150. It’s true the Eagles offense has been hit early by injuries. With Carson Wentz now back under center, the sky is the limit for this team because of their defense.

This Eagle’s front 7 can get after the QB like few teams can. They have a rotation unlike any other in football. A deep run into the playoffs is very achievable again this season.

Getting $1150 on a $100 bet on the Eagles to repeat as Super Bowl champs is perhaps the best value on the board. They need a healthy Alshon Jeffery and Jay Ajayi after putting Mike Wallace on the IR.

The addition of Wentz’s old buddy Jordan Matthews should add a spark.

It could be time to get onboard the Eagles train now. When they rattle off a couple wins, they will bring that value down with them.
