One of the most fun NFL betting futures bets has to do with who will make it to Super Bowl LII. Even though it’s not quite yet July, you can still find odds as to which teams will win their respective divisions, which teams will break the .500 mark in the regular season — and which teams will show up in Super Bowl LII, set to take place in Minneapolis’ U.S. Bank Stadium. Let’s take a look at some of the matchups that the odds say are more likely to take place. Top Five Predicted Super Bowl LII Betting Matchups Dallas vs New England (15-1, +1500) Get ready to see the Patriots a lot in this list, because the oddsmakers have them as the overwhelming favorite to win the AFC.

The drama in this matchup would be immense, with America’s Team taking on one of the teams that so many people in the NFL nation love to hate.

Although, you might be tempted to start locking down some Week 1 wagers and some NFL betting futures now. But the first few weeks of the NFL season are when a lot of bettors lose a lot of money on wagers they placed back in the summer, only to find out that training camp and the pre-season led to some major injuries (see: Teddy Bridgewater and Tony Romo) or that some teams simply don’t come out of the gate as quickly as others. For that reason, we’ve come up with a list of teams to stay away from as you consider those early bets. Teams to Avoid as NFL Betting Picks This 2017 Season Dallas Cowboys Sure, the Dallas Cowboys previously rolled to an NFC East title and a first-round bye in the postseason, but they folded in the playoffs against Green Bay, […]

This means that it’s time for you to take a look at some of the bets that you can lay on futures for these programs — including total season wins.

If you’re looking to improve your recent betting outcomes, take a look at some of our MLB betting predictions for the rest of this season in National League action. The Central Division looks like it’s still just about anyone’s to take (except for Cincinnati, sitting at 30-40), as the Milwaukee Brewers lead the division — but are just three games over .500. The Chicago Cubs, still not awake from their World Series hangover, are just a half-game back at 36-34 despite inconsistencies at the plate and on the mound. Washington appears to have run away with the East, with Atlanta 10 ½ games back — and six games under .500. Out west, we have some unfamiliar characters — the Colorado Rockies and the Arizona Diamondbacks — contending with the Los Angeles Dodgers for the title.

The games begin just when the cold of winter is fading, and they end when the leaves on the trees are turning red and gold once again, with winter about eight weeks away. Over the course of this long season, some teams will start off red-hot and fade over time (yes, Yankees and Twins, we’re looking at you), while others have what it takes to go all the way into the fall and make noise in the postseason (last year’s Cubs are one example, and this year’s Astros and Nationals could be other examples this year.
