After the Chargers and Raiders capped off the 2021 regular season with an overtime instant classic that had Steelers fans on the edge of their seats on Sunday night, the NFL’s playoff field is set as we head into Super Wild Card Weekend with six games over three days.
Let’s take a look at the odds for the 14 teams still competing for the Lombardi Trophy and outline some potential paths for postseason glory. Also, be sure to check out the top betting sites for NFL football in 2021, as well as tips for how to wager on Super Bowl 56.
Super Bowl 56 Odds Update
|Green Bay Packers||+325|
|Kansas City Chiefs||+500|
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers||+800|
|Los Angeles Rams||+1000|
|New England Patriots||+1600|
|San Francisco 49ers||+2200|
|Las Vegas Raiders||+4000|
With a first-round bye and home-field advantage through to the Super Bowl in Los Angeles, the Packers are +325 favorites to win their second Lombardi Trophy with Aaron Rodgers under center. Things also couldn’t have worked out better for Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs (+500), who host a Pittsburgh team they dominated 36-10 on Boxing Day.
Keep in mind the NFL reseeds after Super Wild Card Weekend so Green Bay, as the NFC’s No. 1 seed, will play the lowest-seeded team to advance to the Divisional Round.

If the favorites all take care of business in the NFC, the Packers will welcome the Rams (+1000) to Lambeau Field, leaving the Buccaneers (+800) and Cowboys (+1000) to battle it out on the other side of the bracket.
Meanwhile, as the AFC’s No. 2 seed, Kansas City will face No. 3 Buffalo (+800) if the Bills defeat New England on Saturday night. And, after being slept on and dismissed all year, the No. 1 seed Tennessee Titans (+850) will host Cincinnati (+2000) or Las Vegas (+4000) in the second round unless Bill Belichick and the Patriots (+1600) prevail over the Bills.
Best Super Bowl Values
Sure, Dallas (+1000) chokes every year and their offense has looked mediocre when not playing defenses that were COVID-ravaged (Washington) or resting for the postseason (Philadelphia). But this is an excellent setup for America’s Team. On Sunday, the Cowboys’ turnover-forcing defense will face the 49ers (+2200) and Jimmy Garoppolo, who has three multiple INT games in his last six.
If Mike McCarthy’s club can avoid the upset, they’ll then travel to Tampa Bay to face a Buccaneers team missing Chris Godwin and Antonio Brown from their receiving corps. The defending champs could be vulnerable.
A rivalry renewed.

Joe Burrow threw for nearly 1,000 yards with eight touchdowns and no interceptions in Weeks 16-17 to clinch the NFC North. Now, after a week of rest, the Bengals (+2000) face a Raiders club they stomped by 19 points in late November.
If their swiss-cheese offensive line can survive a visit from Maxx Crosby and company, Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins could feast on the Titans’ pass-funnel defense in the Divisional Round.
