If you’re a fan of the New York Giants, New York Jets or the Philadelphia Eagles, and you’re looking for some encouragement about your team this NFL season, you might not want to check out the updated Super Bowl odds.

If you’re simply interested in the data from a New Jersey legal sports betting angle, there is some good information.

We focused on three of the 17 available New Jersey sportsbooks for this update on Super Bowl odds. And all three have downgraded the futures for all three of the aforementioned teams winning Super Bowl 2020.

That could mean a great opportunity for bettors though.

Three of New Jersey’s most popular legal online sportsbooks, DraftKings Sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook and PointsBet Sportsbook, offer a full complement of NFL futures.

The odds below were current as of 11 a.m. ET on Wednesday, Nov. 20.

The odds on all three teams hoisting the Lombardi Trophy on Feb. 2 are longer than they were when the season began. The Eagles had the shortest odds before Week 1, followed by the Giants and then the Jets.

  • Eagles: +1400
  • Giants: +7000
  • Jets: +8000

Despite the fact that Philadelphia is currently tied for the NFC East lead, the Eagles are far from Super Bowl favorites. That being said, there’s some consensus on the top five teams right now and some variation as well.

Top five teams to win Super Bowl 2020

DraftKings, FanDuel and PointsBet are in unison that the New England Patriots are currently the odds-on favorite to repeat as Super Bowl champs.

Beyond that, however, there are differing opinions:

Although the NFL playoffs are a crapshoot and history has shown us many times that regular-season records mean nothing, at this point in the season qualifying for the postseason is crucial.

Of the six different teams listed in the tables above, New England has the softest remaining schedule.

The Giants and Jets are both in the running for next season’s top overall NFL draft selection. Cincinnati currently has at least a game “lead” on everyone else in the league at 0-9. With the seventh-strongest remaining schedule in the league, the Bengals seem a strong contender for that “distinction.”

The Giants and Jets’ remaining SOS (Strength of Schedule) rank 31st and 28th, respectively. There’s a good chance they might land a few more wins over the final seven weeks of the regular season. Philadelphia comes in at 29th right now.

Why the schedule strength affects Super Bowl futures

Super Bowl odds are very fluid right now based on information such as SOS. The futures can change based on how each team performs in each game for the rest of the season.

Oddsmakers look to regular-season matchups for information on setting futures bets. Therefore, the better teams perform against the league’s regular-season elite, the shorter those odds become.

The Eagles could shorten their odds tremendously this Sunday by defending their home turf against the Patriots. The regular-season finale against Dallas could be another game that seriously affects the odds.

So OK. New Jersey sportsbooks are none too optimistic right now about any of these three teams winning it all based on various factors.

That could mean a nice payday for brave bettors, however. Everyone loves a risky Super Bowl futures bet, right?
