A winning streak of eight games can change many opinions.
For the Chiefs, an astonishing turnaround from 3-4 to 11-4 has caused them to return to the top of the stack in the odds of winning the Super Bowl. Currently, Kansas City is a +400 (four to one) favorite to win it all. They are followed in the odds by the Packers with +450.
Next are the Bucs at +650, the Bills and Rams at +800 and the Cowboys at +1000.
The Patriots currently land at +1300, followed by the Colts at +1600 and the Cardinals and Titans at +2000.
The Bengals could be an exciting value game at +2800, along with the 49ers at +4000. (But not the chargers at +4000.)
Chiefs are also the clear favorites to win the AFC crown at +160, followed by the bills at +350. The Packers are +200 to win the NFC, with the Bucs at +300.
In any of these bets, the biggest wild card continues to be the pandemic. It can in one fell swoop wipe out a team’s chances of advancing on the playoff tree.
