Super Bowl Underdogs Beating the Spread in Early 2018 Season

The NFL continues to be the predominant sports betting event in all of North America. Did you know that Super Bowl underdogs are coming up big in terms of beating the spread? What does this mean? Today we explain.

A recent article by the Washington Post suggests that NFL underdogs went 10-5 against the spread in Week 2 of the NFL season. This begs a number of questions for sports betting enthusiasts. What does this mean for you?

Which NFL teams are contenders and which NFL teams are pretenders? Are underdogs getting extremely lucky or do the book makers have it wrong? Wrong on a lot of NFL teams?

The early season showdown between the Patriots and Jaguars might be the best example of this theory. The Patriots edged out the Jaguars in the 2017 AFC Championship game. However, the Jaguars dealt the Patriots a decisive loss early in the 2018 NFL season. Could these two teams be headed for another game in the 2018 NFL playoffs? We believe so.

Super Bowl Underdogs 2019

When in it comes to sports betting the Jaguars were slight Super Bowl underdogs and they have been dealing with injuries to key players such as Leonard Fournette. Conventional wisdom tells us that the Jaguars might be a legitimate Super Bowl threat as the Patriots and other contenders in the AFC conference are showing early season woes.

Can the sportsbooks catch up with the trend of underdogs winning football games and adjust the lines or will the 2018 NFL season shape up to be one of the most unpredictable seasons ever?

The Jaguars are a perfect example of this phenomenon. Despite the Jaguars showing tremendous promise in the 2017 season, many sports betting handicappers have snubbed the Jaguars chances at making the Super Bowl in 2018.

Super Bowl 53 might be the year to be a contrarian. If you have trusted the experts early in the season, it’s possible that you’ve been the victim of a few early season upsets. Maybe as the season goes on, point spreads will look at a bit different as some teams emerge as potential Super Bowl 53 champions.
