Can you believe we’re already entering Week 4 of the NFL betting season? Last week’s action saw a number of interesting results which opened the door for mass movement in the Super Bowl LVII futures odds market at online sportsbooks. Per usual, I’m here to break it all down!
Be sure to check back every week with my updated breakdown of the Super Bowl LVII futures odds market.

Los Angeles Injury Bugs
At this point, the Chargers should just change their name to the Los Angeles Decrepit since the franchise seemingly never figures out how to avoid the injury bug. First it was Keenan Allen’s hamstring. Then Justin Herbert and Corey Linsley felt the wrath in Week 2 at Kansas City. Now Joey Bosa is out indefinitely with a groin strain while Rashawn Slater is done for the season after rupturing his biceps tendon.
This team just can’t catch any breaks when it comes to season-changing injuries. The loss of so many big names has seen the Bolts odds to win it all fatten up to +2275 since first hitting the board at just over 10-1.
In dropping an ugly 11-10 decision to Denver on the road last week, the San Francisco 49ers odds of hoisting the Lombardi Trophy are the longest they’ve been all season. This represents a prime buying opportunity on a team I thoroughly believe to be the best the NFC has to offer. Snag some NFC shares at +947 as well!
While the roster has also suffered its fair share of injuries, everyone is expected back at some point this year. The high ankle sprain suffered by OT Trent Williams is bothersome to say the least, but it’s not the offense that has me so bullish. It’s the defense and it’s playing lights out evidenced by ranking amongst the top-five in all pertinent defensive categories.
When the Raiders went out and inked Davante Adams to an enormous multi-year contract, it was expected the offense would turn into one of the more lethal the NFL had to offer. Through three weeks, that simply hasn’t been the case with it ranked No. 17 overall and sitting just outside the top-10 in scoring. But that’s not what bothers me the most about the way Josh McDaniels’s offense has gone about its business.
Since going HAM in Week 1 for 141 yards and a touchdown, Adams has managed to secure just seven of 17 overall targets and turned them into 48 yards. While two more touchdowns were nice, it looks like Derek Carr still hasn’t figured out how to get him the ball in space. Once he does, Vegas will likely win a few games and see its SB odds shorten up because of it.
I don’t know about you, but I’m having a hard time deciphering what that huge take back next to the Steelers truly means. Am I to seriously believe the talent in the Steel City is worthy of offering up a 165-1 return on investment to win the Super Bowl? Sorry, but I can’t and won’t accept that rubbish. There’s got to be something holding the team back. What can it be? Oh I know; it’s none other than the QB1’s name that rhymes with Rich Whisky!
How much longer are fantasy and prop bettors going to need to wait before the move to Kenny Pickett is made? We’re sick and tired of watching him miss wide open receivers. We’re sick and tired of watching him mouth “my bad” after making another terrible decision. Nobody in the AFC North has separated itself from the pack just yet. Pittsburgh must make the move, and it must do it now!
Pederson Revenge Game
The Jaguars and Eagles are two of the biggest market movers to this point of the season. Quite naturally, they meet up in the City of Brotherly Love this Sunday with Doug Pederson looking to spring the upset of his former team. Trevor Lawrence has taken giant steps in the right direction under new leadership, while Jalen Hurts is making a push for MVP honors with only Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen ahead of him to take home bragging rights.
It’s hard to believe, but this just might be the game of the week. The betting market looks to be in the corner of the home team, but there was some initial support with the Jags at the opener. This figures to be a heck of a game with both sides going all out to continue the great starts to their respective seasons.
