Throughout the off-season we’ve been keeping you up-to-date with the latest prop bets and futures from across the sports betting marketplace. Whether it’s a look at the NFL Futures, Divisional Odds, Rookie of the Year Odds, Playoff Odds, MVP Odds, or Win Totals and Projections from the LVH.
Recently, the offshore sportsbook BetOnline posted a unique prop regarding the final standings for the 2014 season. Bettors now have the option to wager on the final divisional finishing position for all 32 NFL teams.
The table below displays the odds for each to team finish between one and four in their respective division. We will continue to monitor these odds and will update this post to reflect major line movements.
|Green Bay Packers||-150||+200||+600||+1600|
|Kansas City Chiefs||+600||+175||+150||+350|
|New England Patriots||-340||+350||+1000||+2000|
|New Orleans Saints||+110||+220||+300||+900|
|New York Giants||+300||+240||+250||+250|
|New York Jets||+700||+225||+180||+200|
|San Diego Chargers||+550||+140||+160||+450|
|San Francisco 49ers||+140||+150||+350||+900|
|St. Louis Rams||+1100||+450||+200||-110|
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers||+600||+350||+225||+120|
It’s interesting to note that although the Seattle Seahawks have the best odds of winning the Super Bowl, it’s actually the New England Patriots (-340) and Denver Broncos (-360) who have the best odds of finishing first in their division. This is largely due to the stiff competition in the NFC West from the San Francisco 49ers as compared to the relatively weak competition in the AFC East and West.
On the flip side, the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans have the worst odds of winning the Super Bowl but it’s the Oakland Raiders (+3000) and Minnesota Vikings (+2000) that have the worst odds of winning their division.
It should be noted that while most prop bets and futures are heavily juiced up, the juice on these NFL Final Standings odds are actually well priced. For a quick example, let’s look at the Arizona Cardinals. If we sync up their odds with the implied probabilities we get the following:
- If we add those four implied odds we get a total of 111.11% — a figure very close to the standard -110 juice that we see posted for most games.
Do you think any teams are being overvalued? Can the New England Patriots win the AFC East for a sixth straight season — and their 11th in the last 12 years? Make sure to leave your thoughts and comments in the section below.
