    NFL Futures (1/14/14)

    By John Ewing
    After 50,000 simulations of the NFL Playoffs we find value in Super Bowl odds. Odds courtesy of Bovada.lv.


     
    To determine if a team has value we look at what their current odds are to win the Super Bowl and compare that to our projected odds that they win the Lombardi Trophy. For example, Denver is listed at +210 to win the Super Bowl; in order for us to feel comfortable wagering on the Broncos they would need to win it all 32.3% (which is 100/(100+210)) of the time. We project Denver to win it all 28.5% of the time, meaning there is no value in placing a bet at +210 odds.

    Note: All against-the-spread picks for the 2013-14 NFL Playoffs are now 6-1-1 (86% ATS). All-time, NFL Playoff picks are 32-9 (78% ATS). For access to all of our Conference Championship picks please visit the shop.
     
    Seattle Seahawks (13-3, 1st seed in the NFC)
    Current odds: +200, Odds needed in order to place a wager: 33.3%
    Seattle wins the Super Bowl 42.1% of the time
     
    We encouraged you to take Seattle at 11/4 before the playoffs began and then again last week when the Seahawks were 5/2 favorites. Even though the Hawks’ odds have dropped there is still value in betting them to win the Super Bowl.
     
    Not only is Seattle our most likely champion but the bookmakers would currently favor them in either potential Super Bowl matchups.
    • Seattle vs. Denver, Seahawks -2.5
    • Seattle vs. New England, Seahawks -6
    Fun Stat
    In the last 14 years only two No. 1 seed from the NFC have won the Super Bowl: 1999-00 St. Louis Rams and 2009-10 New Orleans Saints.
     
    Below are the odds for each team to win the Super Bowl. Plus, odds needed to place a wager and our projected odds for each team.
     
    Team Super Bowl Odds Odds Needed Projected Odds

    08/09/2017 Highlight: Football season is slowly approaching and as we use our ResultsFinder tool to look back on previous seasons, we can see that ATS picks in the NFL regular season have topped 56% ATS four times in seven years, and have been profitable in all but one season on the site. NFL Playoff picks are also a stellar 50-25 (67% ATS) in our history.

    In college football, "normal" or better totals are 58% all-time and have been profitable in five of the previous seven years. Meanwhile, our strongest ATS pick each week in college football is 69-40 (63% ATS) all-time. With college football season win totals being posted this week, we can also note that last season, playable win total picks in went 28-19 (60% O/U) to turn a profit of $899 for a normal $50 player using our play value recommendations.

    MLB picks have been on a tear for upwards of a month, with our models generating $742 in total profits on ML and RL picks since the beginning of July. "Normal" or better ML and RL plays in that same stretch are a commendable 20-11 (64.5%), producing $331 in profits for an average $50 bettor.
