Last year’s Super Bowl matchup between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs was so good, bettors on PlayNow.com are hoping for a Super Bowl encore between the two juggernauts this year.  


With a new season getting underway tonight, the Chiefs (+450) begin as the first choice for PlayNow.com players to win the Super Bowl, commanding 22.4% of the total money wagered versus the defending champion Bucs (+650), who have garnered 19.6%. 


As for who will be this year’s NFL MVP, a quintet of quarterbacks have garnered the most attention from PlayNow.com bettors. Patrick Mahomes (+500), Josh Allen (+1200), Kyler Murray (+2000), Justin Herbert (+2000) and Russell Wilson (+1600) are among the leaders in terms of money wagered on PlayNow.com for the MVP honour.


New this year, with Bill C-218 now in effect, PlayNow.com players can make single wagers on the outcome of every game this NFL season, or single wagers on player props (such as touchdowns and receiving yards). The NFL is the most popular sport for PlayNow.com bettors, with thousands of bets offered every season. 


For players who enjoy parlayed wagers, new this season is the Same Game Parlay (SGP) feature, which allows PlayNow.com players to bet on multiple outcomes for the same NFL game. For example, for tonight’s season opener between the Buccaneers and Cowboys, players can bet on Tom Brady to throw for three touchdowns, the Cowboys to win by +3.5 points, and for Ezekiel Elliott to score a touchdown… all in the same wager.
