Quarterback Carousel Causes Super Bowl Betting Odds Change

  • Future Super Bowl betting odds give the Denver Broncos a chance to follow recent trend.

  • Green Bay Packer's title odds become shorter with the news of retaining the reigning MVP.

DENVER - Two of the off-season’s biggest questions were answered yesterday when Russell Wilson was traded from the Seattle Seahawks to the Denver Broncos and when Aaron Rodgers announced his return to the Green Bay Packers.

Bronco's Super Bowl Odds Reflective Of Recent Super Bowl Winners

With Rodgers returning to Green Bay and Tom Brady retiring, it is extremely unlikely that a more established quarterback than Russell Wilson changes teams this offseason.

Those betting on the Denver Broncos are surely hoping the team has the same level of success as the 2020 Tampa Bay Buccaneers and 2021 Los Angeles Rams.

Both Super Bowl Champion teams each landed the most established quarterbacks of the prior offseason and proceeded to win the Super Bowl.

Super Bowl Sports Betting sites have had to adjust the Denver Bronco's Super Bowl odds as well, going from +2500 on Monday to +1200 after the trade.

Teams With Significant Changes In Super Bowl Odds Since 2/13

Team: Odds as of 2/13: Odds as of 3/9: Change in Odds:
Denver Broncos +1600 +1200 -400
Seattle Seahawks +4000 +7500 +3500
Green Bay Packers +1600 +800 -800
Carolina Panthers +5000 +6000 +1000
Pittsburgh Steelers +4000 +4500 +500
Tampa Bay Buccaneers +2500 +3500 +1000

The NFL is a quarterback driven league, and looking at Russell Wilson's career statistics it is clear why the Broncos jumped at the chance to trade for him look to continue the streak of teams to change starting quarterbacks and win the Super Bowl that season.

Aaron Rodgers' Decision To Return Makes Packers The Favorite In The NFC

After multiple years of friction between the Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers, it appears that things are back running smooth between the future Hall of Famer and the franchise. With the news of Rodgers' return, the Packers once again have the shortest odds in the NFC to win the Super Bowl.

Shortest Odds In NFC To Win Super Bowl

Team: Odds:
Green Bay Packers +800
Los Angeles Rams +1100
San Francisco 49ers +1200
Dallas Cowboys +1600
Arizona Cardinals +2500

With Rodgers coming off back-to-back MVP's, his importance to the Packers cannot be understated. If Rodgers had decided to leave the Packers, it is believed that the Packers would have tried to rebuild, and potentially would have decided not to bring back All-Pro free agent Davante Adams.

With the news that the Packers are going into the 2023 season with All-Pro's Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams, it is no wonder that Super Bowl odds are now reflective of their ability.
