2020-2021 NFL Season Update


The NFL needs to get their act together, and quickly. With the coronavirus pandemic already threatening to shut down Major League Baseball’s 2020 regular season restart, more and more football players are choosing to sit out this year’s campaign – including New England Patriots TE Matt LaCosse, the eighth Patriot to opt out thus far. It’s going to take a much better effort from league officials to keep their schedule intact, and keep the NFL lines at Bovada Sportsbook humming this fall.


NFL Odds to Win the Super Bowl

Despite all of those missing players, and the other ones who left during the offseason, the Patriots have still carved out a place among the top teams on Bovada’s Super Bowl odds board – for now. Here are the top six favorites at press time:

1. Kansas City Chiefs: +600 NFL Odds

The defending champions remain the No. 1 commodity on the NFL Vegas odds, and QB Patrick Mahomes might have even more incentive to perform this year after “only” being named the No. 4 player on the NFL Network’s annual Top 100 list.


2. Baltimore Ravens: +650 NFL Odds

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson, the league’s reigning MVP, was given the top spot on the poll – but the pressure will be off Jackson to some extent after Baltimore went to great lengths this offseason to improve their defense. Unfortunately, OT tackle Andre Smith and WR De’Anthony Thomas have both opted out for the Ravens this year.


3. San Francisco 49ers: +900 NFL Odds

Can you beat the NFL betting lines without a superstar quarterback? Absolutely: Jimmy Garoppolo (No. 43 on the Top 100) helped the Niners go 13-3 SU and 9-6-1 ATS last year, and they almost beat Kansas City in Super Bowl 54. Of course, it helps having a tight end as talented as George Kittle, the No. 7 player in this year’s voting.


4. New Orleans Saints: +1000 NFL Odds

It feels a bit strange to see New Orleans QB Drew Brees at No. 12 on the list, but that’s a sign of how well-balanced the Saints are. WR Michael Thomas is ranked fifth this year, and DE Cameron Jordan checks in at No. 23.


5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: +1000 NFL Odds

The Buccaneers hope they’ve got the balance they need after replacing QB Jameis Winston with Tom Brady, but age is definitely an issue here – Brady is two spots behind Brees at No. 14, and Tampa don’t have anyone else in the Top 25.


6. New England Patriots: +1200 NFL Odds

They say the NFL is a coach’s league, and Bill Belichick has a chance to prove that with QB Cam Newton (absent from this year’s Top 100, after placing No. 1 in 2016) taking over for Brady. That’s assuming Newton wins the job; Belichick says the competition is still open for Jarrett Stidham, Brian Hoyer and Brian Lewerke.
