The Steelers are Super Bowl Favorites

Less than a month into the season, the once indestructible-looking Patriots are no longer favorites to win the Super Bowl. Their loss to the Panthers has opened the door for a new favorite…

That’s right, the Steelers are now the +450 favorite to win the Super Bowl at Westgate. Though they haven’t really done anything too impressive this season, the AFC is looking far more up for grabs than one would have imagined at this point. Plus, even if you’re a Patriots fan, you can’t feel comfortable about a potential AFC championship game rematch the way the defense has looked so far.

The Chiefs remain the only undefeated team after their win (and ridiculous back-door cover), but Vegas still hasn’t fully bought into them, yet.

Kansas City’s path to the playoffs may have just gotten a lot easier, though, as the Raiders will be without Derek Carr for at least a couple of weeks. It was looking as if the AFC West had the potential for three playoff teams, but if EJ Manuel can’t get some wins for Oakland while Carr is out, the Raiders may quickly find themselves in a hole too deep for even Zero to dig himself out of. They’ve fallen from 10/1 to 20/1 after losing the game Sunday and their QB for the immediate future.

After the Falcons loss to Buffalo, the top teams in the NFC have swapped spots. I feel that this movement is a bit of an overreaction considering the Falcons lost both Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu during the game. There could be some value at +800 considering these injuries aren’t supposed to be long term.

After their home loss to the Rams, the Cowboys’ odds have dropped from 8/1 to 16/1, a -5.23% swing in implied probability—even worse than the Raiders movement. They’ll have a big test this weekend at home against the Packers in what should be the most popular game of the week.

The Texans continue to climb after destroying the Titans 57-14. They fell to 100/1 after their week 1 loss to Jacksonville, but have creeped all the way back to 25/1 thanks to DeShaun Watson’s stellar play in recent weeks.
