With four favorites standing out from the rest of the pack, BookMaker.eu has now opened up wagers on those teams to NOT win the Super Bowl. Of course you can still throw down some coin on the team you think has a shot at hoisting the Lombardi Trophy in early February with the betting window always open. Placing a wager on a team to come up short of the ultimate goal has a much higher probability rate therefore the odds are long on every team.
The Los Angeles Rams remain the favorite to win Super Bowl LIII, coming off this week at +295. It’s a slight increase from last week, but still shorter than any team on the board. Showing an ability to come from behind last week, the Rams dealt a blow to the hopes of the Packers. Kansas City and New England remain the class of the AFC and the recent odds reflect that. KC remains the second favorite at +545 while the Pats are +565. The Saints are the next closest NFC team to the Rams and they can make a statement in their Week 9 tilt that takes place in the Big Easy.
Here’s a look at the current Super Bowl 53 odds at BookMaker.eu after Week 8 of the 2018 NFL regular season.

If anyone was curious as to how the Rams would respond when faced with a deficit, they found out last Sunday. The Rams haven’t trailed in a game often this season, and they’ve never been behind by double digits, until the first quarter of last Sunday’s game. Green Bay jumped out to a 10-0 lead and forced five punts in the Rams first five possessions. Things were looking good for the Pack, except they couldn’t expand on their advantage.
And that’s what makes the Rams so potent. When the offense isn’t clicking the defense steps up. And when the D has issues, Jared Goff, Todd Gurley, Brandon Cooks, Robert Woods, yada, yada, yada. They all make plays to keep the train rolling. The Rams eventually caught up and took the lead then they gave it back. Faced with a fourth quarter deficit, Goff led the team to a game-winning field goal.
Some might say the Rams are living lucky and that luck will dry up soon. That’s one way to view it. Another is to say the Rams are a talented, well-coached group that doesn’t give up and can win games in blowout fashion. They’ve done that on several occasions, and they’ve proven to be just as deadly in the tight games. Four of LA’s last five games have all been one-score contests, and they Rams have won them all.
Two contenders on the odds board have a chance to make a statement against the Rams in the next few weeks. The Saints are riding a six-game winning streak and look like a Super Bowl threat after taking down the Ravens and Vikings on the road in the last two weeks. And showing they aren’t all about Drew Brees, the Saints beat Minnesota with their QB throwing for the fewest yards in his New Orleans career. The NFC powerhouses collide in the Superdome on Sunday in what is the game of the week. But one loss isn’t going to cripple the odds of either team and they’ve both done well in situating themselves for postseason success.
If you’re still waiting for Patrick Mahomes to stumble, stop. Because it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. Mahomes threw four touchdown passes for a third straight game and the Chiefs swept the Broncos with an easy 30-23 win last week. I say easy because the Chiefs had a 30-14 bulge entering the fourth quarter and took their foot off the gas, allowing the Broncos to get the backdoor cover and end KC’s seven-game ATS winning streak.
It’s always more entertaining to talk about the teams that are new to the Super Bowl favorites list since we don’t always see them hanging around up there. So when it comes to the Patriots, we can simply rehash what we said last week, last year, two years ago, three years ago, and so on. Not a lot changes except some of the names. And that guy Brady is still throwing darts, so the Pats are always a force to be reckoned with.
