The Los Angeles Rams currently have the most total tickets wagered on them to win the Super Bowl at Westgate, including seeing their odds to win it all drop from 20-1 to 10-1 since opening in January.
After acquiring such high-profile talent as Brandin Cooks, Aqib Talib, Marcus Peters and Ndamukong Suh, it’s hard to blame bettors for jumping on the bandwagon.
In the top three of most total tickets and most money wagered are two NFC North teams: the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers. Green Bay and Minnesota are also the only two teams from the same division with double-digit win totals at Westgate.
The Vikings might finally have their long-awaited quarterback in Kirk Cousins, who signed the highest guaranteed contract ever for quarterback. And with Aaron Rodgers back healthy, expectations are high in Green Bay.
