With the NFL season kicking off on Thursday night with a showdown between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Dallas Cowboys, it seems like a good time to look back at some of the most notable bets placed over the course of the offseason.

The Bucs, on the heels of winning Super Bowl LV over the Kansas City Chiefs, were the team that received the two biggest Super Bowl futures bets at BetMGM. One bettor put down $30,000 on the Bucs to repeat at +700, a potential win of $210,000. And when the Bucs were listed at +800 to win the Super Bowl, there was a $25,000 bet that would win $200,000.

Two other five-figure Super Bowl bets were on the Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots. The Packers, potentially in the final season of the Aaron Rodgers era, received a $19,000 bet at +1400. Should that come to fruition, the bettor would win $266,000.

The Patriots bettor would be in for a bigger return. New England is coming off its first losing season since 2000, but one bettor wagered $10,000 on the seventh Super Bowl in Bill Belichick’s tenure. With the Patriots listed at +3000, that bet would return $300,000.
