There’s still seven months remaining for NFL fans to bask in the glory of Super Bowl LI.

Congratulations to all the bettors who chose the Patriots and/or the over.

In fact, it’s possible that some of the more astute tipping services and touts will be putting out their best free NFL betting tips on which teams will be expected to make a serious run at next year’s Super Bowl.
In recent years, online bookmakers have been posting early lines on week 1 of the NFL season. If you can get access to some early NFL betting tips for next season, now might be a great time to start putting down some action on the board.
2017 NFL Betting Tips
With the future book odds already posted for next year’s Super Bowl, let’s take a look and a couple of angles that might point out a winner at a nice price. While the Patriots will go into the season as defending champs, it’s looking like they might be ready for father time to take over.
After a fine regular season led by Rookie of the Year Ezekiel Elliott, who accounted for almost 2,000 yards of total offense with 16 TDs, the Cowboys will be looking to plug some holes on defense during the offseason. With the right trade/draft choice, this team would be poised to again dominate the regular season on the way to a very likely Super Bowl victory at very attractive odds.
At late season injury to QB David Carr cost the Raiders all the momentum they had been building up for the playoffs. They made great strides from the 2015 season and another step forward would make them the class of the AFC. They too will need to shore up a defense that gave opponents over 353 year per game, which put the team towards the bottom of the rankings for total defense.
