Futures bet on the Superbowl 2021

Chiefs: +200.
Packers: +380.
Saints: +550.
Bills: +600.
Ravens: +800.
Buccaneers: +850.
Rams: +2200.
Browns: +2800.

So, let's say that you were "gifted" $1,000. And the only stipulation was that you HAD to bet all $1,000 on some combination (or single bet) on the above Super Bowl 2021 outcomes. Each bet costs $100 (as posted). And you can bet more than $100 on any team. For every $100 bet, the winnings is shown beside each team.

Now, how would you bet your $1,000 and give your thinking of why. Any money not bet is lost and there is no juice on these bets.

2ea Chiefs and Packers, 1ea the rest. As I don’t follow football and was given money and would lose it if I did not bet. This way I get something.

I'll put the whole $1,000 on the Saints.

It would be an amazing feel-good story to see Drew Brees win another Super Bowl and then ride off into the sunset.

The Bucs at +850 is tempting

$300 on the Bills because I like the chances to get to the SB
$200 on the Pack for the same as above
$200 on the Saints I think either the Pack or Saints are going
$100 on the Ravens punchers chance
$100 on the Rams very good d-line, good payout
$100 on the Browns hot right now, good payout

yep

Though my logic is

1) It's not my money, so I'm not losing anything

2) The longest shot I think has a chance

Okay. Well, first of all, I don't see anyone beating the Chiefs on the way to the Super Bowl.
$500 on Chiefs (+200) to win $1000

then it comes down to these teams on who plays the Chiefs
$150 on Packers (+380) to win $570
$200 on Saints (+550) to win $1100
$100 on Bucs (+850) to win $850
$50 on Rams (+2200) to win $1100

I think the Chiefs are much more vulnerable this year.

they may be, but you have to admit their side of the bracket is a hell of a lot easier than the other side.

you would still be in it. $200 on the Chiefs (+200). $200 on the packers (+380). $100 on the Bills (+600). And $100 on the Bucs ($850).

Brees really does need to retire, and apparently he knows it.
