AFC or NFC? One bet to test your loyalty

Chiefs or Bucs? Packers or Bills? Which conference are you putting your money on 🤔 (4 minute read)

One Simple Bet

Instead of betting on one team to win the Super Bowl, why not bet on 16? Each conference has a few powerhouse teams, but the AFC is favored to win this year’s Super Bowl:

  • AFC: -130 (bet $130, win $100)

  • NFC: +110 (bet $100, win $110)

Over the last seven years, the AFC has won five Super Bowls. The conference took home three in a row from 2015-2017, but Brady and the NFC South Bucs are the reigning champs

  • 2015: Patriots beat the Seahawks

  • 2016: Broncos beat the Panthers

  • 2017: Patriots beat the Falcons

  • 2018: Eagles beat the Patriots

  • 2019: Patriots beat the Rams

  • 2020: Chiefs beat the 49ers

  • 2021: Bucs beat the Chiefs

Repeat Winners

Since 1993, only three franchises have won back-to-back Super Bowls:

  • 1993-1994 Cowboys

  • 1998-1999 Broncos

  • 2004-2005 Patriots

Brady is no stranger to repeating, as he’s won seven Super Bowls in ten attempts. He even had a chance to repeat in 2018 vs the Eagles

Of all the NFC teams, the Bucs have the best Super Bowl odds, making them a candidate to do something very few franchises have ever done

  • Bucs Super Bowl Odds: +500

Super Bowl Odds By Conference

Of the top 12 teams with the best SB odds, six are from the AFC and six are from the NFC. However, three of the top five favorites are AFC teams, showing why the line is skewed towards that conference

AFC Favorites:

  • Chiefs: +475

  • Bills: +950

  • Browns: +1150

NFC Favorites:

  • Bucs: +500

  • Packers: +900

If you’re not sure about any of these five teams, the conference bet gives you flexibility. But don’t rule out a Brady repeat 😉

The Sleepers Who Aren’t Sleepers

Not buying the hype on the five best teams? The remaining seven of the top 12 aren’t bad bets at the value their being given. Choose wisely though…

  • Browns: +1150

  • Ravens/49ers/Rams: +1350

  • Seahawks: +1800

The Rams and 49ers have represented the NFC in two of the last three Super Bowls, while Russell Wilson brought Seattle to back-to-back SB appearances in 2014-2015. There’s options with attractive payouts, but they’ll likely have to get by Mahomes, Brady and Rodgers

The Parlay

Heading into last season, the Bucs were +1200 to win the Super Bowl in Brady’s first season with Tampa Bay. If you were a genius and parlayed the Bucs to repeat, you’d be looking at a pretty sweet payout

  • Bucs to win SB 2021 AND SB 2022: +7700 (bet $100, win $7700)
