The top vegas favorites to win the Super Bowl will not shock anyone, as the Patriots, Seahawks, Steelers, Packers and defending champion Broncos round out the top 5.

A solid draft and free agency period, has made the Raiders a very trendy pick to not only make the playoffs, but possibly shake up the AFC contender picture.

2015 Oscar Odds & Predictions



The nominations for the 2015 Academy Awards have been announced and now the release of Oscar betting odds allow fans to cash in on some potential big underdogs Sunday night February 22, 2015.

Personally, I believe one of the best long-shots worth a wager on Oscar night, is Steve Carrell (Foxcatcher) at 25/1 odds to win best actor. Most people are shocked to see Bradley Cooper at 33/1 odds to win for “American Sniper”, but we all know the liberal bias in Hollywood will never let him win. I like Michael Keaton, but my guy tells me that he will not win Sunday night Feb. 22nd.

Big Super Bowl Upsets

There have been some significant Super Bowl upsets over the years. The biggest was in Super Bowl III when the AFL’s New York Jets stunned the NFL’s Baltimore Colts as an 18-point underdog. The AFL struck again in the following year when the Kansas City Chiefs took down the Minnesota Vikings as a 12-point underdog. It would take nearly three decades before another major upset would occur. In 1997, the Denver Broncos knocked off the Green Bay Packers as an 11-point underdog.

Underdogs have been on quite a run in recent Super Bowl match-ups. Dogs have covered the point-spread in five of the last six Super Bowls, winning 4 of 6 outright. The Baltimore Ravens, New Orleans Saints, and New York Giants have pulled off straight-up Super Bowl upsets.

Evolution of the Super Bowl

The first Super Bowl in 1967 wasn’t even a sellout at the Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles. However, it didn’t take long for the game to become a signature sporting event. The upset in Super Bowl III and the AFL/NFL merger made the Super Bowl a must-see game entering the seventies. In turn, wagering on the game also progressed. One of the most notable Super Bowls in terms of betting was in Super Bowl XIII. The odds on the game between the favored Pittsburgh Steelers and the Dallas Cowboys fluctuated between three and five points. Pittsburgh’s 35-31 victory proved to be a disaster for bookmakers as a dreaded middle. Many bettors were able to win on the Steelers at -3 to -3.5 points while Dallas backers were able to get the Cowboys at +4.5 to +5 points at certain times as well. In 1985, prop bets began to become a big part of Super Bowl betting. A prop bet on whether or not William “the Refrigerator” Perry would score a touchdown for the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XX was a big hit with bettors. It was during this time that another trend was developing that was a problem for bookmakers.

For 13 straight years form 1984-96, the NFC won every Super Bowl. During this stretch, the NFC went 10-2-1 against the spread. Since that run has ended, the Super Bowl has become a mega-event in Las Vegas. There are hundreds of prop bets available on the game for novice and professional bettors to choose from. As a new decade begins, the Super Bowl will continue its growth.
