- BetOnline has updated Super Bowl odds for all 32 NFL teams
- The undefeated Steelers (+1200) face the unbeaten Titans (+1800) in Week 7
- The Cardinals (+3300) and Raiders (+4000) will shorten their title odds significantly if they score upsets over the Seahawks and Buccaneers this Sunday
While the Packers (+1200) resembled Super Bowl contenders heading into Week 6, it’s once again hard to take Green Bay or Aaron Rodgers’ MVP candidacy seriously after they were demolished by Todd Bowles’ Buccaneers defense in front of a national audience on Sunday.
Tampa Bay’s decisive 38-10 win served notice to the entire NFL that Tom Brady could maybe, just maybe, win a seventh Lombardi Trophy without Patriots coach Bill Belichick. The odds of that happening are 10 to 1 according to BetOnline‘s updated board of title favorites.
Heading into Week 7, let’s look at some of the other teams that are trending up and down.
ODDS TO WIN SUPER BOWL 55
|Team||Current Odds||Trending||After Wk 5|
|Kansas City Chiefs||+375||↑||+400|
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers||+1000||↑||+1600|
|Green Bay Packers||+1200||↓||+1000|
|New Orleans Saints||+1400||↓||+1200|
|Los Angeles Rams||+2200||↓||+1600|
|San Francisco 49ers||+3300||↑||+4000|
|Las Vegas Raiders||+4000||↓||+1600|
|New England Patriots||+4000||↓||+2500|
|Los Angeles Chargers||+12500||↔||+12500|
|New York Giants||+100000||↔||+100000|
|New York Jets||+200000||↔||+200000|
Kansas City (+375), Baltimore (+600) and Seattle (+700) form a clear top three of Lombardi favorites ahead of the Buccaneers (+1000) and Packers (+1200). Next up is the Steelers (+1200) who head to Tennessee (+1800) in Week 7 for a battle of two undefeated 5-0 clubs that was originally supposed to take place in Week 4 before COVID ravaged the Titans locker room.
The latest Bovada odds have Mike Vrabel’s team as one-point home-favorites over the Steelers, who then head to Baltimore in Week 8 to face a rested Ravens team coming off a bye week. While Pittsburgh was one of our favorite bets entering the season, there’s a good chance they’ll be available at a better value a fortnight from now.

Meanwhile, if they can survive Week 7, Ryan Tannehill’s Titans have an excellent chance of cashing our bet to be the NFL’s last unbeaten team (available at +2800 before the season) with the Bengals up next.
Sandwiched in between Tennessee and Pittsburgh is New Orleans (+1400), who returns from a Week 6 bye to to host the Panthers. The Saints are being largely dismissed due to the state of Drew Brees’ 41-year-old right arm and two losses in prime-time to the Raiders and Packers in Weeks 2 and 3, but their schedule softens up nicely after upcoming games against two of the best defenses in the NFL in the Bears (+2800) and Bucs.
DESERVING OF MENTION
Arizona (+3300), the latest team to embarrass me for picking the Cowboys in my weekly picks column, host the Seahawks in a matchup of short dudes who make defenders look silly on a weekly basis. A victory by the 4-2 Cardinals would cause their odds to shorten significantly, so get in now if you believe Kyler Murray can get it done on Sunday.
Also at +3300, the 49ers recorded a season-saving 24-16 victory over the Rams in Week 6. However, with shoddy QB play, injuries all over the field and an upcoming murders row of opponents (Patriots, Seahawks, Packers, Saints, Rams, Bills), the defending NFC champion is best left ignored.

Right behind San Francisco are the Raiders and Patriots at +4000. While New England’s sluggish 18-12 loss to Denver makes us look silly for showing faith in the Patriots last week, we believe Cam Newton and company will rebound by running the slate against their next three opponents (49ers, Bills, Jets).
Coming off their bye after a shocking 40-32 upset of the Chiefs in Week 5, Las Vegas has a chance to earn another statement win this Sunday against the Bucs. If Jon Gruden’s team is triumphant again, expect the Raiders’ Super Bowl odds to be no higher than +2000 at this time next week.
