The teams for the 2017 Super Bowl are set, as the New England Patriots were crowned AFC Champions for their victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, shortly after the Atlanta Falcons claimed the title of NFC Champions in a convincing win against the Green Bay Packers. While plenty predicted that the Patriots would make it to yet another Super Bowl this year, the rise of the Falcons was not one that was easily foreseen. Regardless, Atlanta boasts a great roster and plenty of potential to put up a fight, which is why the Vegas oddsmakers see this as a close game on paper. They have set the spread with New England installed as a slight, three-point favorite to open betting with.
With the Super Bowl being by far the most bet single event of the year on a regular basis, the oddsmakers are under a lot of pressure to get it right. There will be tons of money coming in, and lines will likely shift in one direction or another due to this. Largely due to their ability to move the line to balance out the action, Vegas has won money on 24 out of 26 Super Bowls since the statistics started being tracked by the Nevada Gaming Control back in 1991. Considering the countless prop bets and other ways to bet on a Super Bowl, there is a good chance that they’ll be on the right side of Super Bowl LI as well.
