The Panthers are down but not out, so don't count them out of SB 51.

Early Super Bowl LI Picks

Written by on February 9, 2016

It’s never too early to make Early Super Bowl LI Picks for the 2017 season, right? The 2016 Super Bowl ended with the Denver Broncos stuffing the Carolina Panthers all night in a two touchdown win. Peyton Manning now has two Super Bowl titles, which is the same as his younger brother Eli, with the New York Giants. Manning is expected to retire, but that news and much more will make a huge difference in the National Football League landscape for 2016 – 2017. Now with that in mind it is never too early to put your Super Bowl bet on the books especially if there is a smart value pick.

Early Super Bowl LI Picks

Patriots Are the Pick for Super Bowl 51

This list has to start with the New England Patriots first. Until proven otherwise, New England is the class of the National Football League on a year to year basis. Tom Brady still has weapons with Rob Gronkowski and company. The Patriots will need to improve the defense and the offensive line over the offseason. Expect that to happen with a team used to winning. The New England Patriots at 8/1 are a good early Super Bowl LI pick.

Packers Are Next In Line

The Green Bay Packers cannot be counted out. Aaron Rodgers has his best target in Jordy Nelson coming back, and that will be a huge help. Now, he can throw the deep ball again. Eddie Lacy has said he is going to get in better shape, only time will tell for that one. Expect the Packers to have a good off season, and be a strong candidate out of the NFC. The Green Bay Packers at 10/1 are an early Super Bowl LI Pick.

Pick the Panthers to Win Super Bowl 51

The Carolina Panthers will have a chance to get back. Cam Newton was terrific. The MVP will have to make some adjustments to his game, as defenses across the league will figure some things out, but expect that to happen. The Panthers get their best receiving threat back in Kelvin Benjamin, which means the Panthers are still by far the class of the NFC South. The Carolina Panthers at 10/1 odds are an early Super Bowl LI Pick.

Underdog Picks to Win Super Bowl LI

A few teams that come into the season as underdogs may be worth a look as early Super Bowl LI picks. This team was supposed to be improving the last couple years, now with a new look, expect them to compete for players as well. The Los Angeles Rams at 50/1 are not a bad option. What a story that would be, the return to Los Angeles leading to a Super Bowl title. The Rams have talent, and look for them to be in heavy pursuit of a new quarterback.Finally, keep the Philadelphia Eagles in mind. Listed at 50/1 like the Rams, and have a new head coach. They are another team likely in hot pursuit of a quarterback, and we have seen their talent rise up before. The Eagles are a sneaky bet to make when looking at an early Super Bowl LI pick. There is a look at a few Early Super Bowl LI picks for the National Football League. It should be a fun season. Enjoy the offseason with!
