NFL Super Bowl Winner Odds

NFL Super Bowl Winner Odds

The NFL playoffs get underway this weekend with the wildcard round in both the AFC and NFC taking place across Saturday and Sunday.

It’s the time of the year that every NFL fan relishes, the postseason, when the chips are down and there’s no margin for error for the 12 teams still in with a chance of liftin the Lombardi Trophy in February.

But who are the favourites? And who should you put your money on to lift one of the most coveted prizes in world sport?

Here’s a useful guide to the teams to look out for in the NFL playoffs, along with each team’s odds of winning the NFL playoffs.

New Orleans Saints – 13/5 with Bet365 – BET HERE

The New Orleans Saints are favourites with good reason. They racked up no fewer than 13 wins in the regular season and that’s enough to get them home advantage until the Superbowl should they reach that far. With Drew Brees on song and Alvin Kamara going strong in the running game, the Saints have every chance. The home advantage could also prove crucial. The Saints have only lost two games at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome this season.

Kansas City Chiefs – Recommended bet at 5/1 with SkyBet – BET HERE

The Chiefs have been mesmerising at times this season. The Chiefs lead the league for passing this season and that’s no surprise given the form of QB Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs managed 12 wins this season, but they did lose three of their last six games. That’s a small concern, but with Andy Reid at the helm and with stars like Mahomes, Hill, Kelce, Ford and others, the Chiefs have every chance of lighting up the playoffs and lifting the Superbowl. The Chiefs have the star quality and the ability to make plays when the chips are down. That’s what will likely carry them to the Superbowl and that’s what makes them a good bet to win it.

Los Angeles Rams – 11/2 with Sky Bet – BET HERE

The Rams have also racked up 13 wins this season with their electrifying offense and no-nonsense defense. The Rams have the second-best passing offense, and the third-best rushing offense. They are a terrific team on the offensive side of the ball and they have plenty of key men on the defensive side. They have a genius coach in Sean McVay and every chance of lifting the Lombardi Trophy. The Rams did, however, lose two of their last four games and suggestions that they may have been worked out are still a concern. Despite that, they are very much contenders, even if they may have to play the Championship final on the road.

New England Patriots – 7/1 with Sky Bet – BET HERE

The Patriots looked as though they may have a slightly disappointing season, but you didn’t write them off, did you? The Patriots won the AFC East for a 10th straight season and ended up with a record of 11-5. With Bill Belichick and Tom Brady, the Patriots always have a chance. New England are very much contenders, even if they didn’t bring the glitz and the glamour during the regular season.

Chicago Bears – 12/1 with Betfair – BET HERE

The Chicago Bears have the third-best defence in the NFL and they aren’t exactly short on offense with the mobile Mitch Trubisky at QB. The Bears are a slight offense, but there’s a lot to be said for Matt Nagy, Mitch Trubisky and that mean defense. They are also armed with Kyle Fuller, who leads the league for interceptions. The Bears topped the NFC North with a 12-4 record, winning all of their last four games. Don’t write them off.

Baltimore Ravens – 18/1 with Bet365 – BET HERE

The Ravens possess the league’s leading defense and that will go a long way in the playoffs. However, they need more on offense and that’s what could really hold them back going into the postseason. The Ravens play the Chargers in the wildcard round and that’ll be an interesting contest with the Ravens being stronger on defense and the Chargers being stronger on offense. Overcoming that obstacle is going to be tough enough for the Ravens, let alone winning the Superbowl.

Los Angeles Chargers – 20/1 with Bet365 – BET HERE

The Chargers are at longer odds than the Ravens, but they probably have a better chance of lifting the Lombardi Trophy in February. They are still a long shot with work to do on defense, but with Phillip Rivers at QB, they always have a chance. Veterans like him get the job done and he will need to find a way to do that against a top defense in the Ravens if they want to progress in the playoffs. If you’re looking for an outside bet, this could be the team for you.

The outsiders – Indianapolis Colts at 30/1 with Bet365, Houston Texans at 33/1 with Sky Bet, Seattle Seahawks at 35/1 with Black Type, Dallas Cowboys at 35/1 with Black Type and Philadelphia Eagles at 45/1 with Black Type

All of these teams are very much long shots to reach the Superbowl, let alone win it. The Colts lead this list and that’s because they came from a 1-5 record to finish 10-6, finishing just one win behind the Texans in the AFC South. With Andrew Luck, the fifth leading passer in the league, and Darius Leonard, the leading tackler in the league, they have a chance. Beyond the Colts, the Cowboys and the Eagles are teams to watch.

The Eagles are last year’s champions and they have this tremendous team spirit, along with a QB the whole team loves and trusts in Nick Foles. Though, they will have to come through a tough test in the wildcard round against the Bears, which could make their route complicated, not that they haven’t overcome adversity to get to the playoffs in the first place.

The Cowboys finished above the Eagles in the NFC East, racking up 10 wins, winning seven of their last eight games to put themselves in this position. Jason Garrett and his team just won’t lie down, and they are likely to show that character in the postseason. If they can beat the Seahawks at home in the wildcard, they’ll have every chance of causing an upset in the playoffs.
