With the NFL playoff race down to the last two weeks, it’s time to place your Super Bowl futures bets if you haven’t already. The Baltimore Ravens took over from the New England Patriots as championship favourites weeks ago and the betting public has been all over them at +220. The New Orleans Saints (+550) and the New England Patriots (+575) are also seeing strong support, as you’d expect. Bettors still like the Kansas City Chiefs at +750 too, and there isn’t a more popular long shot bet on the board than the Green Bay Packers at +1400.
Heading into Week 16, underdogs still have the edge over favourites at 116-101-7 against the spread (ATS), though the gap has closed over the past few weeks. This week features three games on Saturday, headlined by the Los Angeles Rams visiting the San Francisco 49ers in the nightcap. The Niners are set as 6.5-point favourites and are seeing 80 percent of the betting action. On Sunday Night Football the Chiefs visit a Chicago Bears team with little to play for. The Chiefs are one of the most popular picks of the week as 6-point favourites. Week 16 comes to a close with the Minnesota Vikings continuing their playoff push as 4-point home favourites against the Packers, but more than 80 percent of bettors like the Cheeseheads to cover.
College Bowl season kicks off this weekend and runs into the New Year as four teams battle for the National Championship in the College Football Playoff. LSU is the overall favourite at +115 and will face Oklahoma in the Peach Bowl. Ohio State (+200) squares off against Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl.
It’s never too early to look ahead in the schedule, especially when it comes to Christmas Day in the NBA. As usual, the Association has the best of the best matched up for Christmas with the Celtics visiting the Raptors, the Bucks at the 76ers, the Rockets are in Golden State, the Pelicans visit Denver, and it’s a battle of LA when the Clippers tip off against LeBron and the Lakers. As of Tuesday, the Miami Heat are the best bet in the league at 17-9-1 against the spread, while Toronto checks in at a profitable 15-11 ATS. Milwaukee owns the best scoring differential in the show at 12.93 and figures to be a solid favourite most nights as long as Giannis Antetokounmpo stays healthy.
The New York Islanders reeled off 17 straight wins and continue to lead the NHL in team money standings, having earned better than 10 units for their supporters this year. Winnipeg and Washington aren’t far behind at close to nine units of profit each. The Toronto Maple Leafs haven’t met expectations yet and it has cost their supporters dearly. Toronto bettors are down almost eight units, which puts the club third from the league’s basement.
The UFC starts 2020 with a bang as Conor McGregor makes his return to the Octagon in a matchup with Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone on Jan. 18. McGregor is the early betting favourite at -235 with Cerrone at +175. A McGregor knockout/TKO victory is a popular bet at -138 as is the fight going under 2.5 rounds (-190).
