How To Bet On The Super Bowl In Arizona

Legal Arizona sports betting means that fans will be able to bet on Super Bowl LVI in Arizona. This will be the first year that Arizona will allow in-person and online sports betting thanks to a new bill signed by Governor Doug Ducey in April of 2021. The official launch date is expected to be September 9.

We are coming off of a Super Bowl where Tom Brady and his new team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, dominated returning champs, the Kansas City Chiefs. Arizona’s home team, the Arizona Cardinals, weren’t even close to being in the talks of making the playoffs, let alone the Super Bowl. But with a busy successful off-season rebuilding their roster, the Arizona Cardinals are coming in at +3000 for current Super Bowl LVI odds.

Football fans are looking forward to Super Bowl 56, even though the two top favored teams by nearly all sportsbooks happen to be last year’s match-up, the Bucs and the Chiefs.

1. Kansas City Chiefs

After a horrendous Super Bowl 55 appearance, the Chiefs worked on stacking up their offensive line to protect their MVP quarterback, Patrick Mahomes. After signing Orlando Brown, Joe Thuney, and Kyle Long, the Kansas Chiefs are looking to return to the Super Bowl for their third year in a row. Especially with the return of their all-star offense including Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill.

2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

All of the 22 Super Bowl starters are coming back, meaning the Bucs are favored to return to the big game. Not much has changed with their roster, the team just secured returning players like Rob Gronkowski, Leonard Fournette, and Ndamukong Suh. Not to mention, Tom Brady is back for another season.

3. Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills made it to the AFC Championship last year, so their roster has remained pretty much the same. The team brought back most of their linebackers and offensive line. The Bills did add a new weapon for Josh Allen with the signing of wide receiver Emanuel Sanders. Mitch Trubisky also joined the team, giving the Bills a solid back-up to Allen.

4. Baltimore Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens are bringing back Lamar Jackson, tight end Eric Tomlinson, and defensive end Chris Board. In the off-season, they secured wide receiver Sammy Watkins and guard Kevin Zeitler. The Ravens’ impressive roster will most likely get them to the playoffs again this year.

5. Los Angeles Rams

The Los Angeles Rams underwent major changes when it came to their starting quarterback. As the first blockbuster trade of the off-season, the Rams traded quarterback Jared Goff for the Detroit Lions Matthew Stafford. The team also resigned Leonard Floyd and Darious Williams.

N/A – Arizona Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals haven’t made it to the playoffs since 2015. Their odds of making the Super Bowl weren’t great at the beginning of the season, coming in at +5000 on sportsbooks like DraftKings. But thanks to a successful off-season and the signing of J.J. Watt, A.J, Green, and Rodney Hudson, the Cardinals have bettered their chances, with BetMGM putting them at +3000.

Where Can I Bet On The Super Bowl In Arizona

Just this year, Arizona state representatives approved a bill and Governor Doug Ducey signed the bill in April 2021. The bill allows statewide mobile wagering as well as local casinos and stadiums to allow sports betting.

The bill allows 20 sports betting licenses in the state. Tribes owning local casinos are allowed 10 and local sports franchises are allowed the other 10. Even though they can partner with sportsbooks, sports franchisees are not directly involved in operations.

History Of The Arizona Cardinals Championships

The Cardinals have called Arizona home since 1988, but they have never won a Super Bowl during that time. They did earn a trip to the Super Bowl XLIII though. The 2008 NFC Champions were led by coach Ken Wisenhunt and veteran MVP quarterback, Kurt Warner. With an all-star team behind Warner including Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin, Edgerrin James, and Tim Hightower, they came close to winning the Super Bowl but lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers 27 to 23.

The Arizona Cardinals went on to win the division in 2015 but fell short of making it to the Super Bowl after losing in the NFC Championship against the Carolina Panthers.

Since their appearance in the 2015 NFC Championship, the Cardinals haven’t been able to do much. With the first overall pick in the 2019 draft, they selected quarterback Kyler Murray, paving way for the rebuild of a new team that has yet to make it back to the playoffs.

Off-Season Odds Breakdown For Arizona Cardinals

The NFC West is a tough division, making it hard to get to the playoffs, let alone the Super Bowl. But during the off-season, some major changes were made to the roster, giving the team hope of finally returning to the playoffs and increasing the Arizona Cardinals Super Bowl odds.

Most sportsbooks like FanDuel and DraftKings had the Arizona Cardinals sitting at +5000 to win the Super Bowl. But after some major signings in the off-season, the Cardinals are now at +3000 to win the Super Bowl according to BetMGM.

Top Draft Picks

Round 1 at 16th pick – LB Zaven Collins from Tulsa

Round 2 at 49th pick – WR Rondale Moore from Purdue

Round 4 at 136th pick – CB Marco William from Florida.

The team is looking to win at least nine games to earn a wild card spot in the playoffs. If the San Francisco 49ers stay healthy, they are potentially looking at winning the division, projected to win 10 games. The Cardinals are expected to have the fourth-most wins in the conference, guaranteeing them a spot in the playoffs.

The key is for the Cardinals to stay healthy. If they can’t and fall to under .500 for the season, coach Kliff Kingsbury’s job could be on the line. The good news for the Cardinals is that they have leaders like Larry Fitzgerald and J.J. Watt to lead the young team to victory.

NFL Super Bowl Odds And Betting

Moneyline/Straight Bets

Also known as a straight bet, the moneyline bet is when you simply pick who will win the game. The points don’t matter in this bet. As long as you pick the winner, you receive a payout. 

 

Points Spread

The score does matter with this bet. It works like this, pick the favorite team and if they win by the same amount or more that is listed by sportsbooks, you receive a payout. For example, if the Arizona Cardinals are listed as favorites at -3 ½, to win the payout, the Cardinals need to win by at least four points or more. 

 

If you pick the underdog team, they need to win OR lose within the amount allowed by the sportsbook to receive the payout. For example, if the Seattle Seahawks are the underdog at +3 ½, the Seahawks need to win or lose by fewer than three points. 

 

Totals

Sportsbooks list their guess at the total number of points scored in the game. You can place a bet that the score will be above or below their guess. Totals can be set for quarters and a half as well.  

 

Parlay Bets

Parlay bets include multiple picks, at least on 2 or more different games. A parlay bet can be on the moneyline, points spread, or totals.  

 

A more advanced parlay bet is a teaser. This is when you can change the spread or totals, within 4-10 points. For example, if the Seattle Seahawks are playing the Arizona Cardinals and Seattle is the underdog at +3, you can alter to +9 with a six-point teaser. Meaning, the Seahawks need to win or lose by nine or less instead of three.  

 

What Is An NFL Futures Bet

A futures bet is different than bets on a single game. Instead, it is a bet on a game that will take place in the future, such as the Super Bowl. Not only can you bet on the winner of the Super Bowl with a futures bet, but you can also place a bet on who you think will be in the Super Bowl. 

 

What Is A Super Bowl Prop Bet

A Super Bowl prop bet is when you bet on different outcomes of the game besides just the winner. The bet can be on who will win Super Bowl MVP, who wins the coin toss, the number of sacks in the Super Bowl, the number of completions in the Super Bowl, the points scored at the half, or who scores first. The options are endless and get more creative each year. 

 

During Super Bowl 55, there was even a Super Bowl prop bet about which color of Gatorade that would be dumped on the coach after winning the game. 

How Super Bowl Betting Odds Are Calculated

Super Bowl bets are calculated by using American odds. American odds use plus (+) and minus (-). The plus is how much you will win if you bet $100. Where the minus is how you need to bet to win $100. The favorite is always the team with the highest minus number and the underdog is the team with the highest plus number.

Let’s take a look at an example.

Arizona Cardinals -150

Seattle Seahawks +250

To win $100, you need to bet $150 on the Cardinals. Bet $150 on Cardinals to win $100. If you bet $100 on the Seahawks, you win $250.

What Affects The Odds?

The odds can change at the drop of a hat due to many factors not just throughout the game, but the entire season.

  • Injuries – look at the Chiefs offensive line during the recent Super Bowl as a prime example. They were without two of their best offensive lineman and their quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the rest of the team paid for it.
  • Weather – such as snow and rain. Some cities are known to have extreme weather throughout the season, such as Green Bay and New York.
