Super Bowl Moneyline Pick 2017
Super Bowl Money Line Odds 2017
The Super Bowl is one of the marvels of the sporting world – a grandiose spectacle for all those watching and involved. For many, the biggest part of the game is betting. For some, picking a place to bet is even trickier than picking the winner. Let’s make betting on Super Bowl LI simple and fun.
Falcons vs. Patriots Chances
With a point spread that opened at -3 for the New England Patriots, the sportsbooks are expecting a close game and both teams have a good chance at winning the Super Bowl.
For the Patriots to be successful, their first priority will be to shut down – or at least limit – Julio Jones. Jones may be the best wide receiver in the NFL. A freakish combination of size, speed and strength – few defensive backs can match up one-on-one against Jones. Shutting him down will force the Falcons to change their strategy and rely more on their running games.
For the Atlanta Falcons to be successful, they will need Matt Ryan to play at an MVP level for one more week. Matt Ryan’s ability to spread the ball around may be his greatest asset. The Falcons set an NFL record in 2016, with 13 players catching registering at least one receiving touchdown. As the Patriots will often have Jones doubled team or maybe a running back shadowed by an extra defender, Matt Ryan will need to continue finding a variety of players on the field for the Falcons to win their first Super Bowl.
How to make smart moneyline bets
When making a moneyline bet the most important thing to consider is the potential returns compared to betting on the point spreads. For Super Bowl LI, the moneyline is the best option for anyone confident in the Atlanta Falcons winning the game or the New England Patriots winning by a very small margin.
Super Bowl Moneyline Prediction For 2017
New England Patriots (-145)
Barring any sudden injuries, Super Bowl LI is shaping up to be a sublime matchup – and a difficult one to pick. Breaking the game down into five facets – offense, defense, special teams, experience and health – one can make a stronger argument for the Patriots over the Falcons. While both teams are relatively even in terms of health and special teams, the Patriots have the edge on defense and experience. The Falcons offense can help make up for some of their deficiencies on the defensive side of the ball, it cannot make-up for six prior Super Bowl appearances from Tom Brady and their coach Bill Belichick.
In the four Super Bowl victories by New England, three have been by three points and the fourth by four points. Outside of their first victory in 2002 - against the Rams - the Patriots have not faced an offense nearly as good as the Falcons. Because of how good the Falcons are on offense and to avoid a push on the points spreads, take the Patriots on the moneyline to win 34-31.
