Super Bowl Point Spread Pick 2017
Super Bowl Point Spread Odds 2017
Super Bowl week is finally here. With a great payout on the points spread and a whole lot of alternative spread options. Check out the many options below and get ready for the biggest sporting event of the year.
As the Super Bowl is held at a neutral location, much of the information on how teams perform against the spread at home and on the road can be thrown out the window. Each team will need to devise their best strategy all season to win the big game.
For the Atlanta Falcons to be successful, they will need the offense to be clicking from wire to wire. Getting out to an early lead will allow the pass rush to dial up the pressure and make Tom Brady uncomfortable in the pocket.
For the New England Patriots to be successful, they will need to mix and match their offense to create mismatches and exploit holes. The defense will need to step up in the red zone, limiting the Falcons to field goals instead of touchdowns.
Points spread are the cornerstone of NFL wagering options. While most people are familiar with point spreads, picking the right team remains a challenge. Researching each team, comparing important statistics and reviewing the injury report are the first three steps to making a smart wager. If after looking at those three categories, the decision remains difficult, consider an alternative spread. While the payout may be smarter, most bettors feel comfortable knowing they have a higher chance at being correct.
Super Bowl Point Spread Prediction For 2017
Atlanta Falcons +7.5 (-260)
As sportsbooks are offering a great return on the regular points spread and a great selection of alternative spreads, there is no shortage of options to choose. To avoid the push on the -3 points spread, consider betting on an alternative spread. For bettors looking for the best return on the lowest risk, they are encouraged to take the Atlanta Falcons at +7.5.
The Patriots average margin of victory in the Super Bowl is 3.25, a slightly greater amount than the opening spread. This makes it difficult to predict to predict the margin of victory in a Patriots' win. For the Falcons, 7 points are very reasonable. Even if the Patriots are up by 8 to 14 points late in the game, the Falcons have a great chance to cover with a late score. What also bodes well in the Falcons favour is that the underdog has covered or won 11 times in the last 15 Super Bowls.
