What are NFL Futures Bets?

You have tracked all the offseason roster moves, poured over every stat sheet and read every article you could find, leaving you absolutely convinced you know which team is a lock to win the Super Bowl this year. The only thing left to do is check out NFL futures betting at TwinSpires Sports. Oddsmakers are already at work setting odds for all major NFL championship games and awards based on the current outlook, but those odds will be continually adjusted as the season drama plays out. By assessing solid opportunities and locking in early odds, astute bettors gain the opportunity to cash in on big wins nobody else saw coming.

With any futures bets, you'll typically see a "+" number next to any available wager. For example, +1000 odds for a team to win the Super Bowl would mean that a bet of $100 would pay off $1,000 if that team ended up as champions. In general, these teams or players are seen as the "darkhorse" picks - high risk, but very high reward if they shock the NFL. In some cases, you may see a "-" number next to a team or player that is an overwhelming favorite for a championship or award. For example, -200 odds for a team to win their conference would mean that a bet of $200 on that team would pay a $100 win if they ultimately prevailed as conference champions.

National Football Conference (NFC) Championship Odds

The national Football Conference (NFC) was established as part of of the NFL's merger with the rival American Football League (AFL) in 1970. At the time, the AFL had expanded to 10 team while the NFL fielded 16 clubs, so in order to balance out the two new conferences, 3 teams (the Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Baltimore Colts) left the now established NFC to join the AFC and balance the two conferences at 13 teams each.  Historically, the NFC has shown much greater parity than the AFC, who have sent all but one team to the Super Bowl. Below are the latest NFC Championship odds:

American Football Conference (AFC) Championship Odds

As noted above, the AFC was established at the same time as the NFC as a result of the 1970 merger of the two biggest football leagues in America. Of the current 16 clubs in the AFC, the New England Patriots have been far and beyond the dominant team - capturing a record 11 conference titles and 6 Super Bowl titles. Just like with the NFC Championship, odds for the winners of the AFC Championship are set for all 16 teams early on. Below are the latest AFC Championship odds:

NFL MVP Odds

Similar to picking teams to win their respective conference or the Super Bowl, bettors also have the ability to wager on individual players to earn MVP honors for the NFL at the end of the season. The NFL MVP ranks are dominated by Quarterbacks and Running Backs, with the only exceptions being Hall of Fame linebacker Lawrence Taylor and wide receiver Jerry Rice taking home the honors in 1986 and 1987 respectively. Have a good feeling on a darkhorse you feel is poised for a breakout season? Lock in those odds early for sweet payout! Below are the latest NFL MVP odds:

New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman won the Super Bowl MVP award in 2019 after hauling in 10 passes for 141 yards. The Kent State alum is just the seventh wide receiver to receive the Pete Rozelle Trophy and the first since Steelers standout Santonio Holmes in 2009. Here are three more facts you should know about the award:

  • The Super Bowl MVP award has gone to a quarterback 29 times since 1967
  • Defensive players have only won the award 10 times over the past 52 years
  • Dallas Cowboys linebacker Chuck Howley is the only player from a losing team to earn Super Bowl MVP honors
