Updated Super Bowl 52 Betting Odds – December 16th

Written by on December 15, 2017

With only three weeks of NFL regular season action remaining, including this weekend’s slate of Week 15 contests, now is the perfect time to look at the latest Super Bowl 52 betting odds. From the top favorites and slightly lesser contenders, two teams that will likely end up coming up short in their Super Bowl quests and those teams that are nothing more than straight-up pretenders, I’m going to cover all the bases with my analysis on the latest SB LII future odds.Now, let’s get down to business.

Updated Super Bowl 52 Betting Odds – December 15th

MNF Week 15 Preview: Falcons at Buccaneers NFL Spread & Game Info

The Favorites

New England Patriots

  • Super Bowl 52 Betting Odds: 5/2
Tom Brady and the Patriots are the prohibitive favorites, but right now, I’m thinking they’re going to get beat out by a Pittsburgh team that looks like it has a date with destiny…and no, I’m not talking that local exotic dance with the same name.

Pittsburgh Steelers

  • Super Bowl 52 Betting Odds: 5/1
I like the position the Steelers and their ‘Killer Bees’ of Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell are sitting in right now. I know the loss of starting middle linebacker Ryan Shazier is going to hurt Pittsburgh, but it has also given them some serious emotional fire to get it done for their defensive leader. Call me crazy, but it just looks like the stars are in alignment for Pittsburgh this season.

Minnesota Vikings

  • Super Bowl 52 Betting Odds: 8/1
The Vikings are looking damned good, but their road loss to Carolina this past weekend has me a bit worried. If Minnesota can continue to play offense at a high level and Case Keenum doesn’t revert back into….the old Case Keenum, I think Minnesota has as good of a chance of coming out of the NFC as anyone else.

Philadelphia Eagles

  • Super Bowl 52 Betting Odds: 10/1
Sure, it’s a damned shame that gifted second-year quarterback Carson Wentz went down with a season-ending ACL injury last week, but for some reason, I thinking that Nick Foles isn’t going to do badly at all, especially after seeing him make a huge third-down completion against the Rams in a pressure-packed situation last week that was no doubt, NFL starter worthy.

New Orleans Saints

  • Super Bowl 52 Betting Odds: 12/1
Drew Brees and company (9-4) are looking great as they rank third in scoring (28.5 ppg) and a solid 11th in points allowed (20.2 ppg). Even though I like the Saints as a legitimate NFC title contender, keep in mind, they’ve lost to the Rams and Falcons over the last three weeks.

Los Angeles Rams

  • Super Bowl 52 Betting Odds: 14/1
Despite their narrow loss to Philly last weekend and difficult road date against Seattle on Sunday, I absolutely love what the Rams have done this season and I love the value they are offering as a 14/1 favorite to win it all. L.A. is ranked a stupendous second in scoring (30.5 ppg) and an equally impressive 12th in points allowed (20.4 ppg).

Seattle Seahawks

  • Super Bowl 52 Betting Odds: 16/1
I swear Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks are going to drive me completely nuts this season. One week, I’m like…’yeah, Seattle is looking good.’ The next week, I’m like WTF? Seriously though…Seattle’s 2017 campaign can be summed up by their last two games.The Seahawks put it on Philly in their 24–10 home win in Week 13 that had everyone thinking they were going to be a force in the NFC playoffs. Then, they got smacked around by Jacksonville in their 30-24 road loss this past weekend in a contest that wasn’t nearly as close as the final score indicates.While I’m not counting Seattle out and neither should you. I don’t have a ton of confidence in them either.

Carolina Panthers

  • Super Bowl 52 Betting Odds: 16/1
It’s funny that Carolina (9-4) isn’t getting quite as much national ‘hype’ as a legitimate conference championship favorite, but I’m thinking they should be, especially after seeing them get past Minnesota this past weekend. The Panthers have a quarterback with a skill set unlike any other signal-caller in the league and they’ve got some big-time playmakers in wide receiver Devin Funchess and running backs Jonathan Stewart and Christian McCaffrey.Right now, the Panthers look like a long shot at the Super Bowl 52 Betting Odds.

Atlanta Falcons

  • Super Bowl 52 Betting Odds: 16/1
While it would seem that Atlanta has been an inconsistent mess this season, the Falcons are ranked 16th in scoring (22.6 ppg) and a surprising ninth in points allowed (20.1 ppg). The Falcons have won four of their last five games while beating the Seahawks and Saints during the stretch. Right now, I’m thinking a playoff appearance looks about right and from there, who knows how far the Falcons could go?

My Top Longshots

Jacksonville Jaguars

  • Super Bowl 52 Betting Odds: 16/1
I can not tell a lie. When it comes to the Jacksonville Jaguars, I’m just going to stop being a freaking hater. I’m done dismissing the Jags as some sort of team that has gotten ‘lucky’ on more than one occasion this season and now I recognize them for what they truly are. The Jags are ranked an impressive sixth in scoring (25.3 ppg) and a stellar first in points allowed (15.5 ppg).Jacksonville now has an elite power running back that can wear down defenses in rookie Leonard Fournette and a defense that is shutting down its opponents with alarming regularity. I’ve got to give credit where credit is due. Jacksonville looks like a team capable of upsetting the entire apple cart in the AFC, Patriots, and Steelers be damned.

Los Angeles Chargers

  • Super Bowl 52 Betting Odds: 20/1
Last, but not least, I love the gun-slinging Philip Rivers and the Los Angeles Chargers (7-6 SU, 7-5-1 ATS) as a value-packed longshot selection. The Chargers rank fifth in total offense, third in passing, thanks to Rivers, 24th in rushing, although Melvin Gordon is still clearly underrated with 853 rushing yards and a modest 15th in scoring (22.9 ppg).However, unlike past years, this season, it is L.A.’s defense that has made me a real believer. Despite ranking just 29th against the run, L.A. is ranked 10th in total defense, a stellar third against the pass and…wait for it…a phenomenal second in points allowed (17.3 ppg).The Bolts have won four straight and seven of their last nine at the time of this writing while, limiting five of those opponents to 16 points or less. Call me crazy, but I’m going with Philip Rivers and the L.A. Chargers as my top longshot to upset everyone and bag this season’s Super Bowl 52 title.
