Price Boost makes Broncos the pick for Superbowl XLVIII

| 29.11.2013

Some Thanksgiving NFL Price Boosts at Ladbrokes have seen added value placed on Denver to win this season’s Superbowl.

The Broncos, who boast an unbeaten home record and a 9-2 ratio so far this term, were joint favourites with the Seattle Seahawks at 3/1 to lift the Vince Lombardi trophy at Superbowl XLVIII.

However following the boosting activity, John Fox’s side – who currently lead the AFC West standings – are now priced at 7/2 to go all the way.

The Seahawks, who have lost just one of their 11 outings this season, remain the favourites at 3/1, but while they boast an impressive points difference of +127 this is bettered only by the Broncos (+140), making the Denver side slightly more appealing at the prices.

Other boosts have seen the Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions move from 40/1 to 50/1 to put together a championship-winning run.

Detroit enjoyed a narrow win over rivals Chicago at Soldier Field earlier this month but two successive losses since have diminished their hopes, while the Cowboys will be confident of going on a run after bouncing back from their New Orleans hammering with a road trip win over the New York Giants.

Both sides top their division at present with records of 6-5 and while their form sits in the shadow of the aforementioned teams, Baltimore showed last year that indifferent form in the regular season can be overcome after finishing 10-6 before going on to win the Superbowl.

The Ravens have also been subjected to a boosted price but their early season form makes them hard to back.

At 5-6 the Ravens could still go on to match their win-loss ratio of last year but a price of 100/1 from 80/1 indicates that their efforts to usurp the 2005 New England Patriots as the last back-to-back Superbowl winners will ultimately end in failure.
