Super Bowl Futures: Patriots Heavily Favoured to Win it All


Bet Now

After enjoying a bye week, the top four teams are rested and ready to enter the playoffs. The New England Patriots are on the top of the totem pole, heavily favoured to win their division, conference and the Super Bowl. Tom Brady and company are inside of 2/1 on the Super Bowl futures market, while only one of the other eight teams is inside 5/1.

Here is a breakdown of each teams’ odds heading into the Divisional Round.


New England Patriots

Odds to Win Super Bowl: +180

After resting on their bye week, the Patriots seem to have an easy path to the AFC Championship Game. They’re the biggest favourite of the weekend, laying 16 points to the Houston Texans on Saturday.


Dallas Cowboys

Odds to Win Super Bowl: +475

The Cowboys’ odds dipped from +400 last week to +475 this week because they now have to face the red-hot Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round. The good news for the Cowboys is that they’re healthy, rested and were 7-1 at home this season. The Packers were just 4-4 on the road.


Green Bay Packers

Odds to Win Super Bowl: +550

Aaron Rodgers shredded a very good New York Giants defense last week to the tune of 38 points. Even though the Packers lost star receiver Jordy Nelson, there’s a lot of optimism that this team can keep rolling. They’ve won seven in a row and are now rated higher than both No. 2 seeds in each respective conference.


Pittsburgh Steelers

Odds to Win Super Bowl: +725

The Steelers beat the Miami Dolphins 30-12 last Sunday and now hit the road to face the Kansas City Chiefs, who they beat 43-14 in Week 4. Will the Chiefs get their revenge, or do the Steelers have their meal ticket?


Atlanta Falcons

Odds to Win Super Bowl: +800

The Falcons are one of the least-talked about playoff teams, and they’ve been overlooked for much of the season. Not only did their offense lead the league in points per game (33.8) this season, but they tied for the eighth-most scoring offense in NFL history. Part of what makes their offense so effective is its unpredictability; the Falcons broke a record for having 13 different players catch a touchdown this season.


Seattle Seahawks

Odds to Win Super Bowl: +900

The Seahawks struggled in December, but looked right Saturday night against the Detroit Lions. Their running game has struggled all season, but Thomas Rawls churned out a season-high 161 rushing yards and a touchdown. We’ll see if they can duplicate the effort on the road, where they’ve struggled all season long (3-4-1 in away games).


Kansas City Chiefs

Odds to Win Super Bowl: +900

Skepticism surrounds the Kansas City Chiefs. They’re the No. 2 seed in the AFC, but are tied for sixth on the Super Bowl futures market. They’ve won 10 of their last 12 games, and will make their playoff debut as 1-point favourites against the Pittsburgh Steelers.


Houston Texans

Odds to Win Super Bowl: +5000

Few people are giving the Texans a chance at a deep playoff run. Even though they’re equipped with the league’s top defense (in terms of yards allowed), their offense is challenged. By almost any measurable, quarterback Brock Osweiler is the worst quarterback of any of the eight remaining starters.
