NFL Who’s Hot and Who’s Not – Super Bowl LI

2 min read

In my final addition for the 2016 NFL season of “Who Hot and Who is Not” for BetAnySports it is pretty evident that there are only two hot teams left on the list against the other 30 that are getting the early jump on their offseason plans.

The betting futures odds at BetAnySports going all the way back to last spring favored New England making its way back to the Super Bowl this season and the Patriots did not disappoint their fans at 16-2 straight or their bettors at 15-3 against the spread. They made short work of both Houston and Pittsburgh in their first two postseason matchups to extend the team’s current SU winning streak to nine games while going 8-1 ATS. The total went OVER the closing 49.5-point line in Sunday’s 36-17 romp against Pittsburgh as six-point home favorites and it has gone OVER in the Patriots last three games.

Atlanta was a bit further down the list to even win the NFC when the 2016 NFL futures odds were first released, but it put a big exclamation mark on its 13-5 SU (12-6 ATS) run to Super Bowl LI by hammering Green Bay 44-21 in the NFC title game as a 6.5-point favorite at home. The total easily went OVER an already high 60 points in that game and it has now gone OVER in 16 of the Falcons’ 18 games played this year. Their SU winning streak now stands at six games with a 5-1 record ATS. The total has gone OVER in all six outings.

When it comes to this matchup in the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 5 at NRG Stadium in Houston, BetAnySports has opened the Patriots as three-point favorites and the current total line has been set at 58.5. New England has actually failed to cover in four of its last five Super Bowl appearances. This will be Atlanta’s second trip to the Super Bowl in franchise history after losing to the Denver Broncos 34-19 back in the 1998 season.

Both of these teams have been extremely hot both on the field at the betting window behind a pair of quarterbacks that both deserve a great deal of credit for their team’s success this season. Tom Brady had to sit out the first four regular season games due to a league suspension and he still threw for 3,554 yards and 28 touchdowns. Ryan, who is basically a lock to win league MVP honors, was second to Drew Brees in passing yards (4,944) and second to Aaron Rodgers in passing touchdowns (38).
