Super Bowl Odds: Betting Favorites, Historical Point Spreads & Winners
Coming off of free agency and the NFL Draft, teams are fairly set in stone at this point, minus maybe some veteran cuts or a devastating injury during training camp/preseason.
As you can see from the 2020 Super Bowl Odds below, there are clear Super Bowl favorites versus teams that have, borderline, no chance.
Super Bowl 54 Favorites Include The Cleveland Browns
Perhaps one of the most surprising sights is that the Cleveland Browns are among the favorites to win the 2020 Super Bowl at 14/1 odds. That is crazy when you look back at their history, but times have changed and the Browns are for real! While the Browns are the AFC North favorite, they are in a conference with stiff competition, such as the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs.
While it may be a cliché, the Browns are still a young team that could make a run, but have they reached “Elite” status? Only time will tell. The NFL over-under wins for the Browns are set at 9 wins at most sportsbooks.

2020 Super Bowl Predictions
Lets take a look at the 3 possible Super Bowl champions coming from 3 different prediction angles.
1. The oddsmaker’s prediction to win the 2020 Super Bowl.
2. A value team with a “solid shot” to win the Lombardi Trophy.
3. Long shot ROI dark horse pick to win Super Bowl 54.
Kansas City Chiefs: Super Bowl Bound
If you go back to last season, the Chiefs were literally an off-sides penalty away from beating the Patriots and moving on to the Super Bowl.
This season, quarterback Patrick Mahomes is now a veteran, coming off an MVP season. KC has an established running game and their secondary has improved immensely from arguably the worst units in all of football. However, there is some controversy that could impact a Super Bowl run. Wide receiver Tyreek Hill has once again been involved in some off-the-field turmoil that could result in a suspension. While he may not be Hill, the Chiefs did draft Mecole Hardman and Sammy Watkins and Travis Kelce are massive weapons.
The Chiefs are primed for success and their 8/1 odds to win the Super Bowl place them as the #2 favorite at most legal online sportsbooks.
Are The Colts Ready To Be Super Bowl Contenders?
Earlier we talked about the Browns and their competition. Well, the Colts are in the position. A young team ready to pop, but they need to get past the “Elite” AFC teams. Colts QB Andrew Luck is a seasoned veteran at this point who is coming off a great season, going 10-6 with a small playoff run.
The Colts offense has a great set of weapons in T.Y. Hilton, Eric Ebron and young star RB Marlon Mack. They also added Parris Campbell and Devin Funchess for roster depth. The Colts defense has been their kryptonite in the past, but after adding players like Justin Houston to help rush the passer, a deep playoff run is possible..
The Colts look like they could go toe-to-toe with the Patriots, though the Chiefs look like a tall-task. Just look at last season where they only put up 13 points on a suspect Chiefs defense. If things fall the right way, the Colts could have a shot and provide great value at 14/1 odds to win the Super Bowl.
2020 Super Bowl ROI Dark Horse Pick: San Francisco 49ers
When it comes to 2020 Super Bowl odds, the 49ers are clearly a long-shot or better known here as a dark horse. The 49ers odds to win the Super Bowl are 40/1 at FanDuel Sportsbook PA.
The 49ers had the #2 NFL draft pick in May. Are they really ready to contend for the Super Bowl? Well, if you’ll recall, the 49ers lost quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo early to an ACL tear. All reports point to healthy and determined Garoppolo for 2019.
The 49ers have a great offensive line, a bunch of young weapons and a defensive line that has some of the best young talent in the league, including top draft choice Nick Bosa.
Again, this is a dark horse option, but they are a bit of an unknown commodity with a full season of Garoppolo. When looking for surprise NFL teams, you need a division that has some holes. Outside of the LA Rams, a wild-card position is wide open in the NFC West.
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.
Super Bowl Coin Toss Results History
One of the most popular Super Bowl Prop Bets is the coin toss. Quite frankly, it’s extremely popular due to a quick payout potential and the simplicity of the bet.
