Best and Worst Sports Books to Place Super Bowl Futures Bets in Las Vegas

0

The NFL playoffs are here. There are 12 teams still alive to win the Super Bowl. Some bettors choose to pick a team with a futures bet and hope they are the Super Bowl winner.

The house edge on futures bets can vary widely from one sports book to another.  We visited four sports books in Las Vegas and pulled other odds from mobile apps to determine which house offers the best return to players.

The odds below were surveyed on Monday between 7pm and 10pm, except for Boyd Gaming, which did not post odds until Tuesday.  We used the futures bet calculator at Wizard of Odds to determine the house edge.

Las Vegas Sports Books Ranked by Vig on NFL Futures

  • Cantor: 15.37%
  • Westgate: 16.62%
  • William Hill: 20.16%
  • Caesars: 20.49%
  • Boyd Gaming: 28.8%
  • Station: 31.47%
  • MGM: 37.64%

Best and Worst Sports Books to Bet Each Team

Just because a sports book has the lowest vig, it may not have the best price on every team.  This could be due to the liability of other bets placed earlier in the year on certain runners or a lack of balance in current action.  The book may need to make a price higher on another team to entice action away from one where it has already accepted a disproportionate amount of action.  Todd Fuhrman expanded on futures markets based on his bookmaking experience here.
