Super Bowl betting fans should always be careful when betting the team that beat the NFL Super Bowl Odds as they often prove to be one hit wonders rather than dynasties. The 1968 New York Jets scored the most famous Super Bowl betting upset of all time when they beat the NFL Super Bowl Odds in January of 1969 as 18.5-point Super Bowl gambling dogs against the Baltimore Colts.
That was the last great thing the Jets have ever done to this day as they have never returned to the Super Bowl betting board ever since. The 1985 Chicago Bears looked like a certain dynasty after their “Super Bowl Shuffle” win over the New England Patriots to cap off an 18-1 season.
The Bears became overlays thanks to their Super Bowl betting blowout win of 46-10 but they never made it back to the Big Dance. Chicago has to go down as one of the most disappointing Super Bowl betting winners of all time and a classic under-achiever.
The same could be said of the 1996 Green Bay Packers after they too destroyed the New England Patriots 35-21 for an easy Super Bowl betting payout. With a young Brett Favre the Packers were poised for greatness, or so it seemed.
Yet Green Bay suffered one of the biggest Super Bowl betting losses of all time the following year when the Denver Broncos defeated them 31-24 as 12-point dogs. Green Bay never made it back and went down as another Super Bowl betting tease that lacked what it took to sustain success.
The Baltimore Ravens of 2000 looked like a Super Bowl powerhouse for years to come after they dominated the New York Giants 34-7 and yet the Ravens have never been back to another Super Sunday despite having one of the best defenses in all of football.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers of 2002 also looked like a dynasty of the future after they destroyed the Oakland Raiders 48-21 but they allowed it all to go to their heads and were never the same since that day. A past Super Bowl champion is just that. It is not a guarantee for future success!
