While there is still a large gap between the revenues of Iowa and New Jersey bettors, there is one thing in common with the two states.

Well, maybe more than one, since both states grow some pretty good corn (do not sleep on Jersey corn, blueberries, cranberries, or any other fruits and vegetables from the Garden State: I mean, it is called the Garden State for a reason, right?)

Both states also have passion for sports betting, in particular on the National Football League.

And what a first two months of the season it has been for the NFL: after the Arizona Cardinals lost in dramatic fashion to the Green Bay Packers on Thursday Night Football, there are now no more unbeaten teams in the league.

But there sure are a lot of one-loss teams in the NFC (five, to be exact, heading into the Halloween weekend), and seven more two-loss teams, with six of them coming from the AFC.

So basically, the races in each conference heading into Week 8 of the season are all wide open, which is a great thing for bettors in New Jersey, Iowa, and all over the country.

If there is no prohibitive favorite halfway through the season, you are going to get some fantastic value on Super Bowl LVI futures odds. But that also means your wager is riskier at this point, since who knows which team comes from either conference, let alone wins the Super Bowl.

It is no surprise to see that all five of the one-loss teams currently have five of the top six numbers with the sportsbooks. The NFC is very top-heavy, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (defending champions, +500 odds at Pointsbet Iowa), Los Angeles Rams (+750), Arizona Cardinals (+800), Green Bay Packers (+1000), and Dallas Cowboys (+1100) all look like they could win the NFC.

Buffalo (+500) is the lone AFC team in that top six, but teams seven though 13 are all from that conference.

Here are the current odds to win the Super Bowl, as well as their opening odds before the 2021 season began.

Which team would you wager on right now?

I would probably throw a few bucks on the Bucs, and the Bills. If you are looking for a bit of a longshot, take the Titans and Derrick Henry.
