The NFL regular season kicks off next week and offseason action on futures has been pouring in. Let’s look ???? at which teams and players have been getting the most betting interest in various markets before the real games begin.

Here are the teams that have gotten the most action to win the Super Bowl.


1. Jets 9.2% (+1300)
The owners of the NFL’s longest postseason drought have not made the playoffs since 2010 ???? – their last “Hard Knocks” appearance before this season.

2. Bengals 8.1% (+900)
Cincinnati nearly has more Super Bowl tickets than the rest of the AFC North combined (8.6%).

3. Eagles 7.8% (+650)
Super Bowl hangover alert? The previous two Super Bowl losers out of the NFC (2019 49ers, 2018 Rams) missed the playoffs the following season.

4. Bears 7.2% (+4000)
The Bears and Broncos (+4500) are the only teams in the top 14 in Super Bowl tickets that have longer odds than +2500.

5. Lions 6.7% (+1900)
Detroit is one of four teams to have never made a Super Bowl along with the Browns, Jaguars and Texans.


1. Jets 14.7% (+1300)
It’s one thing for the Jets to be leading here, but it’s another that they have actually racked up more than double the Super Bowl handle of 30 of 31 NFL teams ????.

2. Bengals 8.0% (+900)
Number of playoff wins for the Bengals franchise pre-Joe Burrow? Five. Since drafting Burrow? Also five.

3. Eagles 7.0% (+650)
Philly was originally tied for the fourth-lowest Super Bowl odds at +900, however only the Chiefs are ahead of them now.

4. Lions 6.7% (+1900)
The Lions are a very popular bet in general, as they have drawn the most money ???? to make the playoffs (-185) and to win any NFL division (+125 for NFC North).

5. Chiefs 6.6% (+600)
The Patriots were the last back-to-back Super Bowl winners in 2004 and 2005, but we’ve learned not to doubt Patrick Mahomes.


Ariel Epstein is looking to continue her hot streak after going 5-1-1 last week. Daniel Parisi is ready to start off strong for the U.S. Open.


Astros Moneyline (+115) @ Red Sox [7:10 p.m. ET]
“Red Sox starter Chris Sale is 1-4 with a 5.63 ERA in his career against Houston. The Astros have the second-highest OPS facing lefties and are 16-11 as a road dog.”
Royals SP Zack Greinke Over 2.5 K’s (-125) [8:10 p.m. ET]
“Greinke has gone over 2.5 strikeouts in 18 of his 23 starts. Thirteen consecutive righty starters have struck out at least 3 Pirates, a lineup filled with young hitters.”


Games Handicap: Max Purcell -3.5 games (-125) vs. Chris O'Connell [Tues., 11 a.m. ET]
"Purcell is producing some of the best tennis of his career, coming off consecutive deep runs at the Cincinnati Masters and Winston-Salem Open. Meanwhile, O'Connell has won just 1 match since Wimbledon."

PointsBet Data and Insights

Sam Hartman had a memorable Notre Dame ☘️ debut this past weekend in Dublin. The star quarterback had the same number of touchdown passes (4) as incompletions in a 42-3 blowout victory against Navy.

Even with the strong effort and recent action, Hartman’s Heisman odds have not budged off of +1600 ????. We asked trader Wyatt Satre why that was the case.

ASK THE TRADER: “We received quite a few Hartman bets during the game and thought he played slightly above expectation but not necessarily a massive performance. With Navy having a poorly rated defense even before the season kicked off, the trading team didn’t think it warranted a price adjustment.”

As Yogi Berra once said, “It ain’t over till it’s over.” ????

Believe it or not, Acuna Jr. had the same odds to win NL MVP as Shohei Ohtani did for AL MVP as recently as July 21.

So why has Betts taken over the top spot now? We checked in with trader Michael Veneziano to get his read on the market.

ASK THE TRADER: “Prior to August, Acuna had the higher AVG, OBP, SLG and OPS while on pace for a prestigious 40-40 HR-SB season, which has only been done 4 times in MLB history. His HR pace has slowed a bit, but he can still be the first-ever 30-60 player. Betts’ extraordinary August (.464 AVG and 1.328 OPS) has vaulted him past Acuna in multiple categories and he’s tracking for 40+ HRs for the first time in his career. Betts as the new favorite is not a knock on Acuna at all, he is having a tremendous season and the award ???? can still be won. But I think Acuna’s best chance now is reaching one of the historical milestones.”
