We had another wild Sunday when it comes to the top teams in the NFL, as the Tennessee Titans were upset by the Houston Texans, 22-13, the Buffalo Bills were blasted by the Indianapolis Colts, 41-15, and the Green Bay Packers were out-dueled by Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings, 34-31. All of these outcomes have led to shifts in Super Bowl odds, so let's take a look at where we stand.
The Kansas City Chiefs (+550) were the early favorite to win the 2022 Super Bowl, according to Caesars Sportsbook. The Packers (+900), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+1100), Baltimore Ravens (+1200), 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. Buffalo Bills
4. Los Angeles Rams
6. Green Bay Packers
8. Baltimore Ravens
10. Tennessee Titans
The Buccaneers were tied with the Bills as favorites to win Super Bowl LVI last week, but obviously things changed after a dominant win by the Buccaneers over the New York Giants and the Bills' embarrassing loss to the Colts.
One big mover from last week is the Chiefs, as the defense carried them to a 19-9 win over the Cowboys. The No. 1 scoring offense in the league couldn't even manage double digits in what was the Cowboys' season-low point total. The Chiefs have now allowed just 14.5 points per game over the last six contests. Everyone knows this offense has the potential to be one of the most explosive units in the NFL, but the defense waking up is notable. Chris Jones was an absolute monster on Sunday. He had 3.5 sacks to go along with a fumble recovery and a clutch tipped pass. It's difficult to decipher who the true Super Bowl favorite is right now, but if I had to lay money down, I would probably take a flier on the Chiefs.
The biggest mover this week happened to be the Patriots, who blanked the Atlanta Falcons on "Thursday Night Football," 25-0. Mac Jones, the run game and the defense are all playing great ball, and they have quickly become the dark horse when it comes to Super Bowl contenders. While this team is red-hot, I'm not putting money on Jones to lead the Pats to the Super Bowl -- at least not in his rookie season.
