After Another Crazy Week of NFL Action, Which Teams Lead the Futures Odds to Win Super Bowl LVI and AFC/NFC?
This content was produced in partnership with Gambler Media.
Does any team actually want to win the Super Bowl?
Who knows at this point, because for the third National Football League week in a row, there was absolute carnage and chaos across the land.
How in the world could you possibly legislate for the one-win Houston Texans finally showing up against the AFC leading Tennessee Titans? Not only did the Texans smash the Titans, but the Minnesota Vikings beat the Green Bay Packers, the Indianapolis Colts crushed the once AFC favorite Buffalo Bills, and the Washington Football Team beat Carolina.
Coming into Week 11 of the 2021 NFL season, the Bills were even with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the futures odds to win Super Bowl LVI, and favored to win the AFC. But how in the world could you look at this Buffalo team right now and think it is the best in the conference?
So who IS going to represent their leagues in the Super Bowl, and who is going to take home the trophy?
Here is a look at some teams you should be jumping on now, before the latest betting offers and odds change even more.
Kansas City Chiefs, +750 to win Super Bowl, +350 to win AFC at Caesars
I have been on this team for weeks, saying that they were going to turn it around and move up the odds boards. Well, well, well, it feels very good to be right. Kansas City’s defense did the job this week at home against a very good Dallas team that many think could represent the NFC, and that is good news for backers of this team. If the defense and offense both get hot down the stretch, look out! Get this team now before the odds drop.
Baltimore Ravens, +1200 to win Super Bowl, +550 to win AFC
As you can see, I am very down on the Bills. But this Baltimore team won without Lamar Jackson and other players-albeit against the lowly Bears-and a win is a win in the NFL. I think this team is going to be peaking heading into the playoffs.
Arizona Cardinals, +900 to win Super Bowl, +425 to win NFC
The other teams in the NFC keep losing, while Arizona picked up a huge road win in Seattle with backups. At 9-2, the Cards have only lost once without Kyler Murray, and he will be back in the fold soon and healthy. I really like this team, and have been backing them since before the season.
Indianapolis Colts, +3300 to win Super Bowl, +1600 to win AFC
How could you watch that drubbing Jonathan Taylor (New Jersey represent!) just put on the Bills and not think this team could do it against any other side in the AFC? The Colts are red hot after a 1-4 start, which saw Indy lose by three to the Rams and six to the Ravens (plus a three-point loss to the Titans in late Oct.). Indy has gone 5-1 since, and Taylor is running into MVP contention. If the Colts can go 3-3 or 4-2 down the stretch, would you want to play them in the playoffs? No way; but I might back them at those huge odds.
Bonus Bet: take Taylor to win MVP at +15000, because those are going to drop like crazy ASAP.
