- The Green Bay Packers are the top favorites for winning the NFL Super Bowl.
- Kansas City Chiefs are second on the list.
- The reigning champs, Buccaneers, and the Titans are third and fourth with similar chances.
The NFL playoffs are a couple of days from us, and the tension is about to hit the ceiling. The oddsmakers are constantly making changes in projections after seeing the injury reports and team news, but we can say that pretty much all of their offers are stable at the moment.
We will run through the NFL Super Bowl race’s current situation and present the biggest favorites for winning the Lombardy Trophy.
Rodgers, Packers Leading the Way
The Packs are +400 win to take back the trophy to Winsconsin. Their chances got a boost because two big names are back on the field again, LT David Bakhtiari and LB Za’Darius Smith, are ready to play in the Divisional round.
This couldn’t be better news for the Packers, who clinched the top spot in the NFC without these three indispensable pieces of their team. So, if everything goes well, Green Bay will be even stronger in the playoffs than now.
We don’t need to mention that Aaron Rodgers leads the way in the NFL MVP race, and that the reigning winner will probably get his fourth such award.
Mahomes and Chiefs Bounce Back After a Slow Start
The Kansas City Chiefs were out of all the title talks after the first, let’s say, six weeks of football. Back then, they were looking pretty mediocre, and Mahomes recorded the same number of interceptions as in the entire 2020.
Of course, if he isn’t playing well, the entire crew is downhill, but the same correlation applies when he is on fire, which has been the case in the last few weeks. That is why the Chiefs are +490 to win their second Super Bowl in three years.
Buccaneers and Titans Leveled
Antonio Brown’s outburst and several injuries slashed Tampa’s prospects to win the title. Despite having Brady, the leader in touchdown passes with 43 of them, the Buccaneers aren’t looking convincing enough. That’s why the odds on them are +790, and as time goes by, they are going down.
Meanwhile, Titans are improving +810, as one of the most powerful running backs seen in the last few decades, Derrick Henry comes back to the field. Julio Jones should be ready to go as well, like several other players who had injury troubles.
Buffalo Bills and the LA Rams are +900; the Dallas Cowboys are +1200, Bengals are +2000, ahead of the 49ers, who sit at +2500. The team from Bay Area looks pretty interesting, and in our humble opinion, they might be a dark horse in this race.
Bill Belichick and the Pats are +2600; the Arizona Cardinals fell down to +2500 after a superb start once they looked unstoppable. The Raiders +5000, the Eagles +6000, and the Steelers +6600 close the list.
The playoffs start on Saturday in Cincinnati, where the Bengals host the Raiders.
