NFL Futures Odds, Predictions and Betting Lines

Check out the latest NFL futures odds, predictions, and betting lines for the 2021/22 season. All our futures odds are updated as they change to be sure you are getting the very latest odds and the freshest picks. We have covered every NFL futures bet you can think of: from the divisional, conference, and Super Bowl winners to all the individual player and coach awards that you can wager on.

Welcome to the exciting and entertaining world of NFL betting futures, where you can place a wager on a pro football event that will be decided in the future, meaning beyond just the current day or week of action.

Many of these ‘futures bets’ revolve around certain end-of-season results.

For example, you might want to bet on some of these popular futures markets:

  • Your favorite NFL team to win the Super Bowl
  • Your favorite team to win their Conference or Division
  • The number of wins a team will post over the course of the regular season
  • Your favorite NFL player to win an award or to be a top performer

The best part? Futures bets typically come with big payouts because the events you wager on are difficult to achieve — it’s hard to win the Super Bowl or be named a league MVP – so even the best teams in the league will end up being plus-money for you.

NFL Futures Bet Example

Say you want to bet on the first example listed above – your favorite team to win the Super Bowl – then your futures odds would look something like this:

Super Bowl Winner Odds
Tampa Bay Buccaneers +500
BET NOW
Kansas City Chiefs +600
BET NOW
Buffalo Bills +750
BET NOW
Los Angeles Rams +750
BET NOW
Green Bay Packers +1200
BET NOW

Odds taken from DraftKings Sportsbook.

As you can see, even the best teams in the league offer a huge payout if they win.

But to win, first, you must place a bet, which, in the age of legal sports betting now available in over half the states in the US, is a whole lot easier to do than you might think.

Placing a Futures Bet

Placing a futures bet is quite simple to do:

  1. First do your research – get a feel for which teams or players seem most likely to win big, plus find your favorite type of futures bet.
  2. Search for the best odds for your favorite futures wager – keep in mind that different sportsbooks offer different odds, some better than others.
  3. Register at the site/app that you feel will give you the best payout for your favorite futures.
  4. Place your futures bet.
  5. Then, once the season ends, (hopefully) collect your huge winnings!

Futures Payout

Using the above data, say you bet $100 for the Green Bay Packers to win the Super Bowl and they actually win it all!

Since the odds of that happening were listed at +1200, that means you would win $1200 plus your original investment, so as a payout you would receive $1,300 for that winning wager.

NFL Futures Frequently Asked Questions

If you are new to betting futures, chances are you have a lot of the same questions that other bettors have already asked.

Here are a few of those FAQs answered.

What Will I Need to Register for Sports Betting App?

Every sportsbook app is different, but here are some of the most common requirements they use to verify the age and identity of potential players:

  • SSN
  • Driver’s License
  • Full Name
  • Date of Birth
  • Residential Address
  • Email Address
  • Legal acknowledgment
  • Credit/Debit Card to make wagers

What Are the Most Popular Futures Markets?

  • Super Bowl: Which is your favorite team to win it all?
  • Conference or Division: which team will win the AFC? The NFC? Or the NFC North or AFC South?
  • Total Wins: how many wins will a team record over the course of the regular season?
  • Season Awards: which player will be MVP? Which coach will be selected Coach of the Year? Which rookie will be the Defensive Rookie of the Year?
  • Top Performers: Which receiver will catch the most TDs? Which defensive end will record the most sacks?

What Is the “Bet Amount”?

The bet amount is the amount of money that you are risking on a given bet.

What Is My “Payout”?

Your payout includes two amounts: your winnings plus whatever you originally wagered.

What Does the “-” and “+” Mean in Sports Betting?

The ” – ” always refers to the favorite and the ” + ” always refers to the underdog.

The “-“ number represents how much money you need to risk in order to win $100.

So, for odds of -110, you would need to bet $110 to win back $100, and then your total payout would equal $210 for the win (your original investment of $110 + the payout of $100).

The “+“ number represents how much money you will win for every $100 risked.

So, for odds of +110, you would only need to risk $100 to win back $110, and then your total payout would equal $210 for the win (your original investment of $100 + the payout of $110).

See our full guide on “American Odds and the concept of -110“.

What Is Line Shopping?

Line shopping is when the bettor searches for the best odds among the different sportsbooks before placing their bet.

Why Does the Line Move?

Line movement means the betting line changes, and that is typically caused by one team or player getting a majority of the bets.

In that case, oddsmakers will then move the line in an effort to entice bettors to take the less popular side.

Why? This offsets the oddsmaker’s liability for that particular game or performance award.

Can I Bet Futures if I Do Not Live In The Same State as the Sportsbook?

Yes, you can!

There is nothing illegal about sports wagering in a legal state if you are not from there.

However, you DO need to be within the state’s borders while placing that bet.

What Is the Upside to Betting Futures?

The big payouts! Since it’s extremely difficult to, say, win the Super Bowl or be named a league MVP, sportsbooks are willing to pay a lot more for a futures win, so even the best teams in the league will end up being plus-money for you with futures bet.

What Is the Downside to Betting Futures?

With a futures bet, once you make your wager, it is locked in at whatever the odds were at the time you placed the bet.

But say you bet on your favorite team to win the Super Bowl and one of their star playmakers gets injured or they hit a slump in the middle of the season, then suddenly that team’s prospects of winning do not look quite as good.
