The biggest underdog left in the fight so to speak is the New England Patriots, and they might be the best-valued underdog as well. Last week I mentioned I really liked their future odds price of +750, and that looks like a gold mine compared to their NFL Odds now. The Patriots come in at +425 to win the Super Bowl from Bovada, and if you’re picking your wagers on Super Bowl experience alone, the Patriots are your wager.
Peyton Manning has struggled at times against a Bill Belichick defense. Over their combined careers, the two have faced off against one another 21 times, (with Belichick wither was a defensive coordinator or head coach) and Manning has a SU record of 9-12. Furthermore, since Belichick has been with the Patriots, Manning is only 6-11 SU.
While Manning also has one of his best teams in all of those many years, there are still chinks in the armor. Chris Harris Jr tore his ACL and he will of course miss this game for the Broncos. He was one of, if not their best cornerback, and even though I really like Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, he is not Harris Jr.
This is going to put a huge strain on the Broncos’ secondary against the only quarterback capable of giving the Broncos a taste of their own medicine offensively. I expect Tom Brady to have a good game in Denver, as the weather at this point looks calm. Even though they have lost over 55% of their value since this time last week, the Pats still look ok at +425 to win the Super Bowl. They are currently the only future NFL odds price left that I would even consider taking.
