2017 Super Bowl Betting Tips PT 2- By A.J. Ryder on February 2, 2017 19:06 GMT
The points total market is set at about 58.5 so they clearly expect this one to be a bit of a barn-burner. I think with this one it's definitely worth favouring the under since Super Bowl's are typically won by defence and organization – not by flashy offense. They seldom devolve into absolute shoot-outs unless the game is particularly lopsided.
Tom Brady is the odds-on favourite to be named as the Superbowl MVP and you can back him to do so at a best price of about 10/11 while Matt Ryan is trading at a listing of around 15/8 with several major bookmakers.
It's worth keeping your eyes on some of the wide receivers, in particular is Falcons receiver Julio Jones who has always looked a class apart in the NFL and you can assume that he's going to be able to be an instrumental part of any Falcons victory. It may not be Ryan who winds up getting all of the plaudits and a 2 or 3 touchdown game by Jones might see him pull off the MVP performance even if they do wind up losing to the Patriots.
In a match that is expected to have a lot of offense played – you can see this pretty clearly just by checking out the game total market – you will always do well to back players in the anytime goalscorer betting odds. Punters will find LaGarrette Blount priced at a 4/5 margin right now to score a TD at any point in the Super Bowl. You'll also find Devonta Freeman available at a 4/5 margin as well to grab a touchdown.
Julio Jones can be backed at an identical price.
A few bookmakers go as high as a 10/1 price tag on Tom Brady to score a touchdown at any point and you have to reckon that it's not a bad wager. If they get far ahead in the match, Brady will likely pull something tricky and pull off a quarterback sneak or a designed run. As a players who doesn't run with the ball particularly often, you have to assume that Bill Belichek will have something up his sleeve for Brady.
