The NFL regular season is in the books. The road to Super Bowl 54 begins Saturday, meaning bettors are running out of time to place championship future wagers.

The model and the betting market agree that the most likely Super Bowl winner is the Baltimore. Oddsmakers at PointsBet list Lamar Jackson & Co. as +210 favorites.
Odds as of Jan. 1 at 9 a.m. ET and via PointsBet, where Action Network users can access an exclusive promotion to get a 200% deposit match (deposit $50, bet with $150). No strings attached. No rollover required.
The implied probability of John Harbaugh’s team being crowned champs based on +210 odds is 32.3%. According to our simulations, the Ravens have a 35.3% chance of winning the Super Bowl.
