Super Bowl Odds Update After Week 6

  • The Super Bowl 54 odds have been revised following an eventful Week 6
  • The Chiefs have fallen to +800 after suffering a home-loss to the Texans
  • A quarterback controversy could be brewing in Carolina (+2000) after Kyle Allen led the team to its fourth-straight win

While half the franchises in the NFL were busy hiring Sean McVay’s assistants in the offseason, everyone seemed to forget about another offensive genius in the NFC West.

Kyle Shanahan and his San Francisco 49ers laid waste to the LA Rams on Sunday, improving to 5-0 for the first time since the days of Joe Montana (1990).

With a dominant defense line loaded with five first-round picks, an impossible-to-stop running game and the best tight end in football, San Francisco has already eclipsed last year’s win total (four) and emerged as a serious Super Bowl 54 contender.

Let’s look at the latest title odds at BetOnline and call out a few other storylines that caught everyone off guard.

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS

Watching this year’s Chiefs is a sad reminder that all good things must come to an end. While we all knew that Patrick Mahomes would regress after his magical 50-touchdown MVP season, it’s almost shocking how ordinary their offense looks.

Tyreek Hill went for 80 yards and two scores in his return to action this week, but Mahomes’ sprained ankle has made him look mortal in two-consecutive losses to the Colts and Texans.

If the 24-year-old returns to full health and gets left tackle Eric Fisher back from groin surgery, there’s still time for Kansas City to reprise last year’s fireworks, however, the running game and defense have been equally disappointing.

At +800, the Chiefs aren’t exactly a great bargain given the team they just lost to at home (Houston) is still at +2000.

CAROLINA PANTHERS

Considering I picked the Panthers to win the NFC South and begged you to place a 50/1 Super Bowl bet on them in the preseason, I can’t say I’m surprised by the team’s 4-2 start, but I would be lying if I said I maintained faith after Carolina’s 0-2 start.

Since replacing an injured Cam Newton, 23-year-old QB Kyle Allen has thrown for seven touchdowns and no picks in leading the Panthers to four-straight victories.

While the NFL’s leading-rusher Christian McCaffrey has more than a little to do with the club’s offensive output, Allen has a passer rating of 107.9 while leading Carolina to three 30+ point performances in four games.

There’s already talk of a quarterback controversy once Newton returns, but a healthy, running Cam has the potential to make Norv Turner’s attack even more dangerous.

Combine that with a defense that’s currently pacing the NFL in sacks (27) and second in interceptions (nine), with a league-leading 54 points scored off turnovers through six games, and you have yourself a legitimate Super Bowl contender.
