The Baltimore Ravens, and their fans, are still celebrating their victory in this year’s Super Bowl – as are those who bet on them for the trophy – but already speculation and betting odds for the new NFL season have begun to emerge. This is not entirely surprising, as NFL related betting is hugely popular – as are NFL slot games at online casino sites shows – but what may be surprising to some observers and sports bettors, is that the Baltimore Ravens are not the favourites to win this year’s NFL, despite their performance in the Super Bowl.
That game saw the Ravens outclass their competitors, the San Francisco 49ers, for a large part of the game, but this has not translated into them being odds on favourites for the NFL next year. The Ravens are currently rated 12/1 at many of the sports betting sites, which are certainly not long odds, but the favourites are 7/1. Again, despite failing to deliver last time out, the Denver Broncos are one of the favourites, with the beaten Super Bowl finalists the others – presumably their respective impressive quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Colin Kaepernick are the reason for this.
However those betting should remember that last time the Ravens were given odds of 22/1 and came through to win, so it would be foolish to write them off. Another less pressing, but still real issue facing NFL betting fans is what they do between the matches, but the NFL themed slots games like $5 Million Touchdown at online casino sites are a good way of filling in this time. Sites like lucky nugget have plenty of other sports themed games as well. If you are still a bit hesitant, consider that this particular slot is named after the maximum jackpot amount it offers, and then consider the great bonus game that requires you to pass the ball from player to player – to build up your bonus credits – as you try to score a touchdown. It may not be quite as exciting as the real thing, but the jackpots are bigger and you can bet on it whenever you want.
