Written by on October 30, 2018

If you’re thinking about making an NFL Super Bowl futures odds wager on one or two teams that you like to win it all this season, then you’ve definitely got choices. While the unbeaten Los Angeles Rams are currently sitting on top of the futures odds to win Super Bowl 53 early next year, the NFC West title favorites have plenty of company at the top in the forms of the Kansas City Chiefs, New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints.

Now, let’s take a look at the Super Bowl 53 odds for each and every team, followed by some of my thoughts on a handful of the top Super Bowl hopefuls.

Los Angeles Rams

There’s a reason why the Rams (8-0) are the prohibitive favorites and it’s because they’re loaded with elite talent on both sides of the ball and they have a great young head coach that puts them in position to succeed. With L.A. ranking third in scoring (33.0 ppg) and sixth in points allowed (19.4 ppg), I think the Rams are close to being a lock pick to reach the NFC Championship game at the very least.

Kansas City Chiefs

So what the Chiefs are ranked 21st in points allowed (25.6 ppg), Kansas City has an absolute star in second-year quarterback Patrick Mahomes that has helped them put points on the board like they’re going out of style this season (36.2 ppg) to rank first in scoring. I’m thinking a berth in the AFC Championship game is a lock at this point!

New England Patriots

While Tom Brady and the Patriots offense looks fine in putting up 39.9 points per game (fourth), New England defense has been mediocre at best this season and should be cause for some slight worrying. Something tells me the Pats don’t reach Super Bowl 53 this season.

New Orleans Saints

Crew Brees and the Saints (6-1) are looking damned good heading into Week 9. The defense is heating up nicely and looking more and more like the solid unit they were last season and you know all about how New Orleans has been able to put points on the board ever since Brees arrived in the Big Easy. New Orleans is definitely worth a wager and I have them in this season’s NFC Championship game.

Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings (4-3-1) made a big offseason addition by adding veteran quarterback Kirk Cousins, but the move hasn’t paid dividends just yet. Right now, Minnesota is ranked 16th in scoring (24.6 ppg) and 15th in points allowed (24.4 ppg) and that’s just not going to cut it against the Rams or Saints.

Los Angeles Chargers

The Chargers (5-2) have rebounded nicely from their slow start, but there’s something about the Bolts that I just don’t trust despite the fact that they have a real gunslinger in veteran quarterback Philip Rivers and a bunch of talent on the defensive side of the ball. I personally just can’t see the Chargers getting past either New England or Kansas City in the AFC playoffs and possibly Pittsburgh too.

Pittsburgh Steelers

Pittsburgh (4-2-1) is starting to heat up nicely after a slow start. Not only are the Steelers playing excellent football on both sides of the ball, but beloved second-year running back James Conner is suddenly making life without Le’Veon Bell a lot easier. At 20/1, Pittsburgh has ‘must-bet’ written all over them.

Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens (4-4) added a bunch of veteran wide receivers to help Joe Flacco and their uninspiring passing attack, but the fact of the matter is that Flacco is pretty damned awful, which rules Baltimore out as a legitimate Super Bowl contender for me.

Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles (4-4) haven’t been awful this season after winning it all a year ago, but they sure haven’t looked like a Super Bowl favorite either. I’m thinking the Super Bowl hangover they clearly have this season will make them another team in a long line of them that fails to win consecutive Super Bowl titles. Save your money on the Birds folks, it’s not gonna’ happen.

Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons (3-4) have bounced back a bit from their difficult 1-4 start, but the fact of the matter is that injuries to their defense have derailed any chance Atlanta had of truly playing at an elite level this season.

Carolina Panthers

Cam Newton and the Panthers (5-2) aren’t getting any love for being a legitimate Super Bowl contender, but I’m thinking that maybe they should be. Carolina ranks 12th in scoring (25.4 ppg) and 11th in points allowed (21.7 ppg) and they just find ways to keep winning games, even if they are mostly in ugly fashion. At 33/1 odds, they look like a team offering plenty of ‘upset’ value if you ask me.

Chicago Bears

The Bears (4-3) may not get the same amount of national attention as some other teams that have better odds to win it all, but Chicago is looking good as they rank inside the top 10 in scoring (27.7 ppg) and points allowed (20.6 ppg).

Green Bay Packers

In the now immortal words of the fictional character Madea, Hell-to-the No! When It comes to Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers (3-3) I don’t have any faith whatsoever ever that they can leap-frog every other NFC title favorite in an effort to reach Super Bowl 53. No matter how you feel about Rodgers, Green Bay is mediocre at best this season.

Houston Texans

After opening the season with three straight losses, the Texans (5-3) have heated up nicely in winning five straight heading into Week 9. More importantly, star quarterback Deshaun Watson is starting to look and play like the dominant signal-caller that took the league by storm a year ago. I’m thinking the Texans are a fantastic Super Bowl pick at 33/1 odds.
