Buccaneers, Bills, Chiefs Shuffle Among Top 3 Choices
A week ago the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Buffalo Bills, and Kansas City Chiefs had the shortest odds to win the Super Bowl. While that remains true, the odds in which they’re listed have changed a fair amount. Regulated online betting sites now have the Bucs as the odds-on favorites.
Tampa Bay moved from (+600) to (+550) after their easy win and the Chiefs went from (+550) favorites to (+750) as the third choice, after their loss to the Bills. Buffalo’s odds shorted from (+750) to (+600) due to their convincing win.
Looking ahead, the Bills may be the best bet of the bunch as the team has the easiest remaining schedule in the NFL while the Chiefs have the second-toughest.
Movers Among The Rest Of The Field
One of the big movers this week was the Tennessee Titans who jumped from (+4000) to (+2800) after their win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Why beating a team like the Jags is worth the line movement is confusing, but usually, NFL betting sites know best.
A team that is moving in the opposite direction is the Seattle Seahawks. The loss to the Los Angeles Rams moved them from (+2500) and steadily in contention to (+8000) as a true longshot.
A final team worth noting is the Arizona Cardinals, who are the last remaining undefeated team in the league. Despite being 5-0 with quality wins over the Rams, Titans, and Minnesota Vikings, one may expect them to be one of the top five betting options, but that is not the case yet.
At (+1100), the Cardinals have the same odds as the Baltimore Ravens who needed a record-setting field goal to beat the Detroit Lions and a 22-3 comeback to beat the Indianapolis Colts. Arizona could be getting undervalued, making them a good wager to make with these lines.
