We are inching towards the end of the 2021 NFL regular season, and it may be time to put in your Super Bowl bets. We are starting to see shorter odds for some of the agreed-upon favorites, and you'll want to grab the best number possible if you're high on Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to repeat, or if you think Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs can complete their turnaround.
The Chiefs (+550) were the early favorite to win the 2022 Super Bowl, according to Caesars Sportsbook. The Green Bay Packers (+900), Buccaneers (+1100), Baltimore Ravens (+1200), Buffalo Bills (+1200) and Los Angeles Rams (+1300) followed them. Things have changed in a big way since then. Here's a breakdown of the 10 teams that currently own the best odds to win Super Bowl LVI, which will take place at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, on Sunday, Feb. 13, 2022.
|Team||Current odds||Last week's odds|
1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
2. Kansas City Chiefs
3. Green Bay Packers
6. Buffalo Bills
8. Los Angeles Rams
9. Baltimore Ravens
10. Tennessee Titans
There was no change in the top three this week, although the Chiefs did see their odds change a bit. The real storyline is the meteoric rise of the Patriots, who were +2500 to win it all just a few weeks ago! I hypothesized Mac Jones and Co. could rise to +900 with a win over the Bills, but they rose even more than that. It's a bit surprising considering the fact that New England bested Buffalo in terrible weather, and that Jones completed just 2 of 3 passes for 19 yards. It's not as though this was a dominant victory that showed the NFL world the Patriots are undoubtedly the best team within their division. The Bills get a chance at revenge in a couple weeks.

Speaking of the Bills, they were a big faller this week with their loss to the Pats. They went from division leader to the last wild-card spot in the AFC! At 7-5, they are going to have to battle for a playoff spot. Another team that suffered a big drop this week were the Ravens, as they fell to the Pittsburgh Steelers, 20-19. It wasn't the only loss they suffered on Sunday, as this defense also lost star cornerback Marlon Humphrey for the rest of the season due to a torn pec. While the 8-4 Ravens still own the division lead, are they trending downwards?
Another note worth bringing up is that we haven't seen any movement with our candidates in the top 10 over the past three weeks. All teams in the top 10 this week have remained in the top 10 since the middle of November.
