Can You Really Bet on the Puppy Bowl This Year?

Sports fans across the world have waited an entire year for this upcoming Sunday. Some of the youngest, most agile, and feisty young players are going to take the field for a huge game. Sunday at 2 p.m. Puppy Bowl XVII will kick off with a lineup of some of the most adorable four-legged friends out there. The Puppy Bowl serves as the ultimate pre-game to the Super Bowl and offers a very cute competition. If you aren’t already excited about the Puppy Bowl, offshore sportsbooks are now offering Puppy Bowl XVII betting. 

Who’s Playing in the Puppy Bowl

The only two teams in the PFL (Puppy Football League) meet again in the Puppy Bowl this year as Team Fluff attempts to defend their Championship against Team Ruff. Team Fluff, a high-scoring 63-59 game-winner, hopes to come out strong and defend the coveted Chewy “Lombarky” trophy. When looking at which team to take, something important to note is that both the roster for Team Ruff and Team Fluff is completely known as all of the puppies last year were adopted and no longer are playing in the PFL (Puppy Football League).

What Makes the Puppy Bowl so Special

One of the best parts of the Puppy Bowl each year is the fact that all of the puppies participating in the game are up for adoption and looking for a new home. The Puppy Bowl’s main goal is to bring awareness to these dogs and the shelters all around the U.S that are taking care of these dogs and finding them all a new home. When watching the Puppy Bowl, it is very hard not to fall in love with all of the puppies, and if you want to reach out about adopting one, head to AnimalPlanet.com. In all 16 years the Puppy Bowl has gone on, there is a 100 percent adoption rate. 

What to Watch For

Nothing is more exciting than watching the puppies run out of the tunnel and begin to interact and play with each other. This game is hilarious as puppies battle on a miniature sized football field area that is filled with dog toys, even some that resemble footballs. All of the puppies are monitored by a referee who may even throw a flag if things get out of hand. Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart are hosting Puppy Bowl XVII. The halftime show will consist of the Kitty Halftime Show, where rescue cat DJ Grandmaster Scratch turns down the lights for a party.

Odds for Puppy Bowl XVII

Vegas expects a very even match between Team Fluff and Team Ruff in this bowl game. Snoop Dogg is wearing a Team Fluff jersey in a promotional photo, and Martha Stewart is wearing a Team Ruff jersey.

Winner of Puppy Bowl XVII

Team Fluff Moneyline (+105)

Team Ruff Moneyline (-135)

Team Fluff currently stands as the underdog for this matchup even though they are the defending champions. Either way, both teams are very solid coming in, and it should be a toss-up. When watching the game, look for different colored bandanas on the puppies in order to identify which team each dog is on.

Prediction: Team Ruff Moneyline

I don’t think that Team Fluff will be able to defend the “Lombarky” Trophy in this one. 

MVP of Puppy Bowl XVII

MVP is a Male (-130)

MVP is a Female (-110)

Last year a female labrador-chow chow mix named Gina won Puppy Bowl XVI MVP. It is fascinating to see that the favorite coming into the game is a male.

Prediction: MVP is a Female.
