Super Bowl Odds - UPDATED

A look at current Super Bowl favorites, as listed on DraftKings

Super Bowl Odds: Heading Into Week 1

The current Super Bowl odds are as follows (via DraftKings):

1. Chiefs (+600)

2. Ravens (+650)

3. 49ers (+900)

4. Saints (+1100)

5. Buccaneers (+1400)

No matter how much we try to project or predict, we can never say for sure which teams will reach the Super Bowl until they actually play the games. That being said, it’s rare for there to be crazy surprises with the team that ends up winning. Keep in mind that the Kansas City Chiefs had the best Super Bowl odds heading into Week 1 of the 2019 season. Let’s check out the five leading favorites to win Super Bowl LV, according to DraftKings Sportsbook.

Kansas City Chiefs (+600)

Not surprisingly, Patrick Mahomes and company are the leading betting favorites to repeat as Super Bowl champs. With the addition of rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire and the way Mecole Hardman came on last season, one could argue that the Kansas City Chiefs offense is even better than a year ago. Defensively, the Chiefs don’t need to be great, although they were better than they got credit for during the second-half of last season. The bottom line - as long as Mahomes is healthy, Kansas City is a threat to repeat.

Baltimore Ravens (+650)

The Baltimore Ravens aren't far behind Kansas City in the eyes of the oddsmakers. If Baltimore hadn’t been stunned by the Tennessee Titans in the Divisional round, who knows how things would have played out if the Ravens and Chiefs met in the AFC Championship Game. If Baltimore can shore up some potential problems on the offensive line, Lamar Jackson and the Ravens should be just as dynamic as last year. Defensively, the Ravens made some changes, but they also made upgrades along the defensive line, so they won’t lose a playoff game at the line of scrimmage like last season.

San Francisco 49ers (+900)

The San Francisco 49ers hope the same formula that worked last season can help get them back to the Super Bowl. Despite a few changes, the San Francisco defense still looks like one of the best in the NFL, especially if Nick Bosa continues to improve. However, Jimmy Garoppolo is still missing dangerous receiving options outside of George Kittle. The season could come down to Deebo Samuel’s health and the performance of rookie wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk.

New Orleans Saints (+1100)

This could be the last call for Drew Brees, as he and the New Orleans Saints have lost in the playoffs in devastating fashion in recent years. Nevertheless, Brees has shown little signs of decline and still has Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara at his disposal, not to mention Emmanuel Sanders and the unpredictable Taysom Hill. The New Orleans defense will be solid and could potentially rank inside the top-five. In his final shot, Brees and the Saints shouldn't be overlooked.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+1400)

The oddsmakers have spoken, and the addition of Tom Brady makes the Tampa Bay Buccaneers immediate Super Bowl contenders. Unlike his predecessor, Brady is a safe bet to throw fewer than 30 interceptions, especially with the receiving options on the Tampa Bay offense. However, Tampa’s offensive line, running game, and defense were subpar last year, so the Bucs need to be better at more positions than just quarterback. On the other hand, one could argue that Brady has won with less impressive supporting casts during his career, making Tampa Bay a legitimate Super Bowl threat, especially with Super Bowl LV being played at Raymond James Stadium.

Super Bowl Odds - Updated Through Divisional Round

Four teams remain and the current Super Bowl odds (via DraftKings) are as follows:

  1. Chiefs (+135)
  2. 49ers (+160)
  3. Packers (+500)
  4. Titans (+700)

Super Bowl Odds Recap - Playoffs

  • The Titans are coming off of two improbable road playoff wins: 20-13 against the New England Patriots in Foxborough and then 28-12 against the Baltimore Ravens in the Divisional Round.

  • The Chiefs had a first-round bye and despite getting off to a 24-0 deficit to the Houston Texans in the Divisional Round, they rallied back and ended up winning 51-31. 

  • After earning a first-round bye, the Packers took care of business in the Divisional Round, beating the Seattle Seahawks 28-23. 

  • The Niners had a first-round bye as well and easily took care of the Minnesota Vikings in the Divisional Round (27-10).

Super Bowl Odds - Updated Through Regular Season

After the NFL's regular season concluded, the Super Bowl odds (via DraftKings) for the top five contenders are as follows:

  1. Ravens (+220)
  2. 49ers (+400)
  3. Chiefs (+450)
  4. Saints (+600)
  5. Packers (+1000)

Super Bowl Odds - Updated Through Week 16

After Week 16 NFL action, the Super Bowl odds (via DraftKings) for the top five contenders are as follows:

  1. Ravens (+225)
  2. 49ers (+550)
  3. Patriots (+550)
  4. Saints (+550)
  5. Chiefs (+750)

Super Bowl Odds Recap - Week 16

After Week 16 NFL action, the Super Bowl odds (via DraftKings) for the top five contenders are as follows:

  • The Baltimore Ravens (+225) locked up the No. 1 spot in the AFC and earned a first-round bye and home field advantage throughout the playoffs following their 31-15 road victory over the Cleveland Browns. They'll now rest Lamar Jackson and their starters for their meaningless Week 17 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

  • The San Francisco 49ers (+550) eliminated last year's NFC Champion Los Angeles Rams from playoff contention with their 34-31 Week 16 victory. They'll now take on the Seattle Seahawks in Week 17's marquee matchup on Sunday Night Football.

  • The New England Patriots (+550) turned up the dial offensively and got by the Buffalo Bills at home by the score of 24-17. Tom Brady looked rejuvenated and New England's offense moved the ball well. They'll host the Miami Dolphins as massive home favorites in Week 17 and clinched yet another AFC East Division title.

  • The New Orleans Saints (+550) earned a solid 38-28 road win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 16. They'll take on the Carolina Panthers, who have completely fallen off the map, in Week 17.

  • The Kansas City Chiefs (+750) are heating up at the right time and their defense has allowed exactly three points in back-to-back games (26-3 win over the Chicago Bears in Week 16). If their defense continues to stifle their opponents, Patrick Mahomes and company will be a nightmare opponent for any AFC team. Kansas City will host the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 17.

Super Bowl Odds - Updated Through Week 14

After Week 14 NFL action, the Super Bowl odds (via DraftKings) for the top five contenders are as follows:

  1. Ravens (+235)
  2. 49ers (+450)
  3. Patriots (+550)
  4. Saints (+600)
  5. Chiefs (+800)

Outside Looking In: Packers (+1400), Seahawks (+1400), Vikings (+2500)

Super Bowl Odds Recap - Week 14

  • The Baltimore Ravens (+235) are 11-2 and earned a gritty 24-17 road victory over the Buffalo Bills and continued their winning streak. They'll look for their 10th-straight win against the New York Jets on Thursday night.

  • The San Francisco 49ers (+450) are 11-2 after they willed their way to an exciting 48-46 road shootout win over the New Orleans Saints and are right behind the Ravens on this list due to their ability to take over a game on either end of the ball.

  • The New England Patriots (+550) are 10-3, but have lost two games in a row, dropping last week's contest against the Kansas City Chiefs in Foxborough. They were thoroughly outplayed on both ends of the ball for the second-straight game (and were coming off a loss to the Houston Texans).

  • The Saints (+600) are 10-3 and hung with the Niners for the majority of their Week 14 game, but ultimately fell. Most importantly, their offense operated at a high level against arguably the best defense in the NFL. Therefore, they're still in the mix.

  • The Chiefs (+800) are 9-4 and took down the Patriots on the road in Week 14, which was quite the daunting task. They're surging at the right time and will be dangerous down the stretch.

Super Bowl Odds - Updated Through Week 11

Super Bowl Odds Recap - Week 11

  • After the San Francisco 49ers (+700) suffered their first loss at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks (+1600) in Week 10, the New England Patriots became massive Super Bowl betting line favorites (+270) heading into Week 11. New England beat the Philadelphia Eagles in a hard-fought, defensive battle and maintained their spot atop the Super Bowl odds list.

  • The surging Baltimore Ravens saw their odds improve (+650 to +500) after another dominant victory (this time against the Houston Texans) and now have sole possession of second place as Lamar Jackson continued to establish himself as a viable MVP candidate.

  • The New Orleans Saints (+600) got back on the right track and took down the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (34-17) on the road and saw their odds improve from +650 last week.

  • The San Francisco 49ers (+700) maintained their odds after taking down the Arizona Cardinals in a close-fought battle.

  • The Patrick Mahomes-led Kansas City Chiefs saw their odds improve (+1200 to +1000), and moved into the fifth slot after their Monday Night Football victory over the Los Angeles Chargers. The Green Bay Packers fell out of the top five as a result and their odds slightly decreased (+1000 to +1100) despite the fact that they were on a bye week.

Who is Favored to Win the Super Bowl? - In Depth Analysis 

Patriots (+270)

The Patriots are 9-1, have an NFL-leading +179 point differential and are coming off a victory, but Tom Brady has vocalized his frustration with New England's lack of offensive production. With the exception of their game against Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens, New England's defense has been historically-dominant this season, which has bailed out their offense at times, but there's really no reason not to expect Brady and Josh McDaniels to figure things out on that end of the ball. They'll take on the Cowboys at home this week, travel to the Texans next week and square off against the Chiefs at home the week after, so we'll learn a lot about this squad after that stretch.

Ravens (+500)

Baltimore is the talk of the NFL right now, and for good reason. Jackson is playing on a whole different stratosphere than he did last season and the Ravens offense has scored on 54 percent of their drives this season, which is an historically-dominant number. With a surging defense that just made Deshaun Watson look silly, the Ravens are looking more and more like the team to beat in the AFC due to their recent play, including the dismantling of New England a couple weeks ago. They'll face the Rams in Los Angeles on Monday Night Football this week.

Saints (+600)

After a disappointing loss to the Atlanta Falcons at home in Week 10, the Saints took care of business in Tampa Bay in Week 11, winning easily (34-17). Most importantly, Drew Brees and the offense kicked it back into gear while their defense forced several turnovers against Jameis Winston. They'll host the Carolina Panthers this week.

49ers (+700)

For whatever reason, the Niners haven't been able to dominate the Cardinals this season, but escaped with another win against them in Week 11. They'll face a brutal stretch against the Packers, Ravens and Saints in the next three weeks and will be relying on the health of some of their core offensive players to improve. After this three-game stretch, we will have a more accurate read on this squad.

Chiefs (+1000)

Are they back? Who knows... but the Chiefs earned a victory against the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football and are firmly in the playoff mix once again. They'll host the Oakland Raiders and then travel to New England in the next couple weeks. It's worth mentioning that while he uncharacteristically struggled to rack up passing yards in Week 11, Mahomes looked mobile and rushed for 59 yards on just five carries. The Chiefs need to improve defensively (especially against the run), but it's important not to count out the reigning MVP.

Super Bowl Odds - Updated Through Week 10

After a wild week 10 in the NFL we have seen one of the largest shifts in Super Bowl odds this year. The 49ers are no longer own the best odds to win the Super Bowl after they lost a thriller in OT against the Seahawks. Now the Patriots are back in a spot they know well, the Super Bowl favorites. See the current Super Bowl odds for week 10 below:

  1. Patriots (+270)
  2. Ravens (+650)
  3. Saints (+650)
  4. 49ers (+700)
  5. Packers (+1,000)

Outside looking in: Chiefs (+1,200), Seahawks (+1,600), Vikings (+2,000), Eagles (+2,000)

Super Bowl Odds Recap - Week 10

  • After the San Francisco 49ers (+700) suffered their first loss at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks (+1600), the New England Patriots are massive Super Bowl betting line favorites (+270) heading into Week 11. 

  • The surging Baltimore Ravens (+650) now share the second-highest odds with the New Orleans Saints (+650) as Lamar Jackson continued to establish himself as a viable MVP candidate a dominant Week 10 win while New Orleans suffered a shocking home loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

  • The Green Bay Packers (+1000) improved to 8-2 with their win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 10 and are quietly hanging in the mix. 

  • The Patrick Mahomes-led Kansas City Chiefs (+1200), surging Seattle Seahawks (+1600), Minnesota Vikings (+2000) and Philadelphia Eagles (+2000) could all realistically improve their Super Bowl odds in the coming weeks. 

Who is Favored to Win the Super Bowl? - In Depth Analysis 

Patriots (+270)

Even though the Patriots dropped their last game on the road against the Ravens, their +172 point differential speaks for itself. Not only is that the best mark in the NFL (by far), but only two other teams (Baltimore and San Francisco) have a point differential better than +81. New England is dominant on both ends of the ball and should be recognized as the clear Super Bowl favorite heading into their Week 11 matchup against the Eagles. 

Ravens (+650)

MVP-level quarterback? Check. Dominant offense? Check. Surging defense? Check. A marquee win? Check. This Ravens team is clicking on all cylinders right now and faces a brutal part of their schedule in which they’ll take on the Houston Texans, Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers in consecutive weeks. We are going to learn a lot about this team over that span. If they manage to go 3-0, they’ll see their odds to win the Super Bowl skyrocket.

Saints (+650)

In what might have been the upset of the season, the Falcons manhandled the Saints in New Orleans by the score of 26-9 even after Alvin Kamara returned from injury. No one saw that coming. A road matchup against the league’s worst passing defense should do wonders for Drew Brees and company in Week 11, but if they manage to struggle again, it’ll be concerning to say the least. 

49ers (+700)

Although the 49ers’ perfect season is now a thing of the past, they are still one of the top overall teams in the league. While their running game should continue to thrive moving forward, the health of George Kittle and Emmanuel Sanders will be something to watch. They’re both banged up and questionable in Week 11. If they will be dealing with lingering issues, Kyle Shanahan’s offense will certainly take a hit, and will their Super Bowl odds

Packers (+1000)

Although they’re flying under the radar, the Packers are 8-2, have an elite Aaron Rodgers and the best defense of his tenure as their starting quarterback. They’ll take on the 49ers in Week 11 in what could certainly switch up these odds in the event of a Green Bay victory. The emergence of Aaron Jones, who leads the NFL in rushing touchdowns, has allowed the Packers to operate within a balanced offensive scheme, which has made Rodgers ultra-efficient.
