Super Bowl LVI Futures Bets: NFL Week 12 Update

on

Happy Thanksgiving and welcome to my debut article here at Fantasy Six Pack. My name is Adam Stark and I am going to be writing about NFL Futures bets.

This week I will be looking into Super Bowl LVI Futures and highlighting three teams that you might want to consider putting some money on.

You can find me on Twitter @EverydayFFB. Let’s talk Futures Betting!

Heading into the season you probably thought you had it all figured out. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+550) and the Kansas City Chiefs (+500) nearly co-favorites were the easy choices, right? We are now entering Week 12 in the NFL and the Bucs and Chiefs are still the favorites, but the gap is now a lot closer with some other teams looking like contenders.

Each update I will break down my two or three favorite teams to win the Super Bowl, and talk about why they are trending up. Let’s break down some of the new challengers the Chiefs and Buccaneers have.

Super Bowl LVI Futures Bets: NFL Week 12 Update

Arizona Cardinals (+850)

The Cardinals stand alone with the best record in the NFL at 9-2 and have climbed from +4800 to +850. Arizona was being slept on this off-season, even as they added legit veterans in J.J. Watt and A.J Green. Kyler Murray has been playing at an MVP level – when healthy. He hasn’t played in the month of November.

This team now has the potential coach of the year and has shown they can win with their backup quarterback and running back and without DeAndre Hopkins.

With a top 10 defense and offense, Arizona opened the season with seven wins before ultimately falling to the Green Bay Packers, when A.J Green ran the wrong route leading to a game-ending interception in the end zone. That was a game the Cardinals had a chance to win, but a simple mistake ruined it. That won’t be the case come playoff time.

Buffalo Bills (+900)

This is the best odds you’ll get for the Buffalo Bills, since Week 1. Yes, Buffalo is on a bit of a skid losing three of their last five, but Josh Allen and the Bills have already proven themselves. In Week 5 the Bills dominated the Chiefs, forcing Patrick Mahomes to throw two interceptions. The Bills also shut out two teams this year and although it was the Dolphins and Texans, a shutout is still impressive in the NFL nonetheless. Only five teams this year have been held scoreless and the Bills defense is responsible for two of those.

These next three games will be very crucial to the Bills as they play Saints on Thanksgiving Day, their division rival, the New England Patriots who currently lead the AFC East in Week 13 and then Tom Brady‘s Bucs in Week 14.

I believe the Bills have what it takes to be champions, as they made the AFC championship game last year. Josh Allen has shown he can win big games and with that being said I love the Bills at +900.

Los Angeles Rams (+900)

Now, here’s a team that should be doing better than they have been. The Rams went out and got Von Miller and Odell Beckham Jr.. Both are former First-Team All-Pro players. It is clear Sean McVay has pushed all his chips to the middle since day one, but this year feels different as he added three big-name players, including quarterback Matthew Stafford in the offseason.

It was just a couple of years ago when the Rams made it to the Super Bowl with Jared Goff so who says they can’t make it with Stafford, OBJ and Von Miller?

Matthew Stafford and the Rams have developed one of the most high-powered offenses in the league. After taking down the Super Bowl champs in Week 3, the Rams became Super Bowl favorites for one short week, before losing to the then-undefeated Arizona Cardinals.

The Rams have a tough test this week as they come off a bye and have to take on Aaron Rodger’s Packers.
