Will a wild-card team win the Super Bowl?
By Bob Garcia
We’re reached NFL Wild-Card Weekend and while there are six great games to bet on over three days, we also have some special props over at the Americas Cardroom sportsbook.
One of them is whether a wild-card team will win the Super Bowl. The answer Yes is +518 odds and No is -721.
The Wild-Card teams are any of the six non-division winners playing this weekend. They are New England, Pittsburgh and Las Vegas in the AFC and Philadelphia, San Francisco and Arizona in the NFC.
Remember, a wild-card team won the Super Bowl just last year. Not many people remember that New Orleans actually won the NFC South with a 12-4 record. The 11-5 Buccaneers were forced to win road games at Washington, New Orleans and Green Bay before winning the whole thing. The prior wild-card team to win the Super Bowl was in the 2010 season (Green Bay).
Of course, none of the wild-card teams this year have the G.O.A.T. (Tom Brady) on their squad, but a team like San Francisco certainly has the talent to make a solid run.
Note you can also bet on whether a wild-card team will simply just make the Super Bowl. The odds for that are +329 Yes and -418 No.
