- BetOnline favors Buffalo (+500) to win Super Bowl 56, with the Buccaneers (+575) and Rams (+600) trailing close behind
- The Cowboys (+850) and Packers (+900) overcame injuries to pick up impressive Week 8 victories
- Derrick Henry’s injury is a huge blow to the title hopes of the Tennessee Titans (+1800)
We haven’t quite reached the midway point of the NFL regular season thanks to the addition of a 17th game on the schedule – but the Buffalo Bills are sitting pretty in the AFC following the Derrick Henry injury news. Meanwhile, the NFC race is foggier than ever after the Packers defeated the Cardinals last Thursday night and the Saints stunned the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Circle those wagons
The Bills (+500) didn’t look overly impressive in their 26-11 home victory over the Dolphins on Sunday, but their odds to win the Super Bowl improved after the announcement that Derrick Henry would undergo foot surgery, derailing a Titans (+1800) team coming off three-straight wins against Buffalo, Kansas City (+1400) and Indianapolis (+8000).
With the Chiefs struggling on both side of the ball, Lamar Jackson’s Baltimore Ravens (+1200) could be the only franchise capable of knocking off Josh Allen’s club in the postseason – however, one wonders if long-suffering Bills fans are worried about Bill Belichick’s Patriots (+4000) after they improved to 4-4 with a 27-24 Week 8 road victory over the Chargers (+2500).

Rams rise in crowded NFC
Tampa Bay (+575) remains the NFC favorite despite suffering a 36-27 loss to a Trevor Siemian-led Saints (+2800) team that lost Jameis Winston to a season-ending knee injury. After committing three turnovers in Sunday’s defeat, Tom Brady has now lost four of six meetings with New Orleans in the Sean Payton era.
Meanwhile, Sean McVay’s 7-1 Rams (+600) have a better record than the 6-2 Buccaneers, beat them handily (34-24) in Week 3, and just acquired Hall-of-Fame linebacker Von Miller from the Broncos. Why isn’t Los Angeles favored to host the Super Bowl in SoFi Stadium this February? Likely, because the No. 1 seed and resulting playoff bye will be extra hard to secure while sharing a division with the 7-1 Cardinals (+1200).
Blockbuster: Broncos are finalizing a trade to send eight-time Pro Bowl linebacker Von Miller to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for two second-day 2022 draft picks, league sources tell ESPN.

Cowboys and Packers impress
Dallas (+850) and Green Bay (+900) elevated into the top five after overcoming injuries to pick up impressive Week 8 wins. With Davante Adams in COVID protocol, Aaron Rodgers handed the Cardinals their first loss of the season on Thursday night before dressing as John Wick for Halloween. And, the Cowboys somehow escaped Minnesota with a 20-16 victory despite starting Cooper Rush in place of Dak Prescott on Sunday night.
One commonality between the two clubs is their dynamite two-headed backfields. The Cowboys’ duo of Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard and the Packers tandem of Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon may give these teams an advantage in January when pass defenses tighten up and the weather turns cold.
