NFL Betting Trends – Updated Super Bowl Odds

The 2012 NFL regular season has reached the quarter pole of its 16 game schedule, so it is a great time to check in with Bovada to take a closer look at its updated odds to win Super Bowl XLVII.

The Houston Texans were fourth-favorites at 12/1 to win this season’s Super Bowl in early summer. A rock-solid 4-0 start that has them looking like the most complete team in the league on both sides of the ball which as in turn has elevated the Texans to top spot on the list as the current odds-on-favorite to win it all at 9/2.

Oakland Raiders vs. Denver Broncos Pick

Two of the most hated rivals in football betting action will meet on Sunday afternoon at Mile High, where the Denver Broncos will face off with the Oakland Raiders.

Oakland has had all sorts of success in this series over the course of the last few years, and all of it really spurns around the offense. Even though this is a team that has historically struggled quite a bit on the offensive side of the ball, and the Raiders have been through a ton of quarterbacks, they just keep scoring big time points against the Broncos.

Sure, we’re only a few games into the season, but the Vikings all of a sudden might find themselves in the thick of the playoff race, especially if they can figure out how to win this game. Taking QB Christian Ponder in the first round of the NFL Draft was considered a massive reach, but perhaps Minnesota knew what it was doing.
