2020 NFL Super Bowl FuturesThe 2020 NFL Playoffs are just around the corner. Headed into Week 17, we’re taking a look at the Super Bowl Futures bets and how good a chance each team has at winning the Super Bowl.

There are several different ways the seedings could shake out. In fact, the only seed locked in is the Chiefs, who clinched the AFC’s No. 1 seed.

The Favorites

Kansas City Chiefs: +190

Green Bay Packers: +525

The top teams in each conference naturally find themselves with the best Super Bowl betting odds. Both teams have seen success through the outstanding play of their respective quarterbacks.

The latest betting odds have Patrick Mahomes (+350) and Aaron Rodgers (-400) are the favorites to win NFL MVP.

Kansas City is the defending champion and has a target on its back as a result. The Chiefs will be resting starters in Week 17, and with a first-round bye, it’s a good chance to get healthy.

The Packers clinch the No. 1 seed with a win Sunday. They control their own destiny against the Chicago Bears, who are scrapping for a playoff spot of their own.

A bye week would be quite welcome, as Green Bay’s regular-season bye was back in Week 5. With the added playoff spot in each conference, the No. 2 seed no longer gets a bye week.

The Contenders

  • New Orleans Saints: +700
  • Buffalo Bills: +900

New Orleans has worked well through some key injuries this year but is finally looking healthy for a playoff run. All-Pro wide receiver Michael Thomas is expected to return for the playoffs, and Drew Brees is back under center after suffering several broken ribs.

Alvin Kamara’s six-touchdown performance against the Vikings on Christmas Day kept the Saints in contention for a No. 1 seed. But they’ll need to beat Carolina on the road and Chicago to upset Green Bay to have a shot.

The Buffalo Bills were favored to win the AFC East, but few predicted this level of success. Josh Allen has the third-highest MVP odds. Wide receiver Stefon Diggs leads the league in receiving yards, receptions, and targets, and their defense has the fifth-most takeaways.

The Hopefuls

  • Seattle Seahawks: +1000
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers: +1100
  • Pittsburgh Steelers: +2200

Seattle’s defense has finally figured things out down the stretch. Pete Carroll’s squad is back on track, and if it can clinch a home playoff game, Seattle is a tough place to play in January.

Tampa Bay has qualified for the playoffs for the first time since 2007, thanks in large part to Tom Brady. The future Hall of Famer still slings the ball well to a loaded offense. The Bucs defense is in the top 10 in sacks, takeaways, and rushing yards allowed (where it is the best in the league).

Pittsburgh has fallen from grace a bit after starting the season 11-0. The No. 1 seed slipped away, and the Steelers will be resting starters in Week 17. The much-needed time off could revitalize the team, and Pittsburgh will still be hosting a playoff game.

Yet to Clinch, But In the Mix

  • Baltimore Ravens: +1400
  • Tennessee Titans: +2800
  • Los Angeles Rams: +3300
  • Indianapolis Colts: +5000
  • Miami Dolphins: +6000
  • Arizona Cardinals: +8000
  • Chicago Bears: +8000
  • Dallas Cowboys: +10000
  • Washington Football Team: +10000
  • New York Giants: +15000

It’s confusing to see Baltimore as a stronger favorite than Pittsburgh to win the Super Bowl, especially when the former hasn’t clinched a playoff spot and the latter clinched the division. But make no mistake – the Ravens will be coming in hot. They’ve won four straight and would lock up a spot with a win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

Tennessee is also a team to watch come playoff time. Derrick Henry seems to get stronger as the season goes on.

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill is having another excellent season as well. The Titans’ only hangup is if the defense can slow down some of the potent AFC offenses.

As for the other teams on the list, there’s still a lot of work to do. The winner of the NFC East will have seven wins or fewer, and rightfully have the longest odds to win the Super Bowl.

Either the Cardinals or Bears will advance; if both lose, the Bears would clinch the final Wild Card spot with an 8-8 record.

Miami moved quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to the COVID-19 reserve list Thursday and will turn to struggling rookie Tua Tagovailoa to clinch a playoff berth. Indianapolis is the only team to lose to the Jacksonville Jaguars this year, and they’ll face the Jags again in Week 17.
