Super Bowl betting handicappers have seen the underdogs trend as the way to beat the Super Bowl odds as the pups have brought home the cash in six out of the last eight Super Sundays.
Last year was another Super Bowl betting win for the underdogs as the Arizona Cardinals earned a payout with the Super Bowl odds in their heartbreaking 23-27 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers as 7-point underdogs.
In the year prior to that one of the biggest upsets ever with the Super Bowl odds took place as the New York Giants scored an epic 17-14 win over the then undefeated New England Patriots as 14-point dogs.
This year the Indianapolis Colts are 5-point favorites against the New Orleans Saints in a matchup of two teams with outstanding passing attacks and questionable defenses.
Super Bowl underdogs could be paying off at a much better rate in recent NFL betting seasons due to the ever increasing parity of pro football. The teams continue to become more even on the field and this has been reflected on Super Sunday with closer games and more surprising results.
With Drew Brees at quarterback the Saints would certainly figure to be a dangerous dog with plenty of potential bite and always in a game when they take the field.
