LAS VEGAS - The Denver Broncos have hoisted the Lombardi Trophy as Super Bowl 50 champions, and while plenty of winning bettors are cashing in their tickets made these past two weeks, there are also plenty of future-book bettors who are cashing much bigger tickets as they reap the rewards of their foresight.
The Broncos opened at 8-1 at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook last January and were available during the spring and summer at odds of between 12-1 and 14-1 as we waited to see if Peyton Manning would be back in the saddle. They ended up entering the season at 9-1 to win the Super Bowl and 7-2 to win the AFC title.
So, you never know when the best price is going to be available. It's never too early to start looking at next year's future-book odds, which the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook actually opened four weeks ago on Jan. 11.
I'm going to list my best value bets as we sit here in early February and then also some teams who could be worth a flier if they are able to address their needs through the draft and free agency.
