Chiefs, Packers, Rams, Bills and Buccaneers offer underlay odds
Kansas City, Green Bay, the Los Angeles Rams, the Bills, and the Buccaneers all won their NFL Week 16 games in impressive fashion. But although every one of those teams looked like Super Bowl winners, none of the quartet is worth backing at the odds.
The Bucs beat the worst team in the league right now, the Carolina Panthers. Minnesota bombed at home against the Rams, and Green Bay barely hung on to beat the Browns even though they picked off Baker Mayfield 4 times.
Those four favorites looked good versus inferior teams. The other favorite, the Buffalo Bills, beat a solid New England Patriots’ squad. But unless something changes in the next couple of weeks, Buffalo will have a home game and then must travel.
Also, the home game could be against the 6-seed New England Patriots. In a third battle, it will be tough for the Bills to beat Belichick and the Pats.
Among the teams that have yet to qualify, the Miami Dolphins at +9500 looks best
The Miami Dolphins are a real football team. Yes, on Monday night, the Fins got to beat up a New Orleans Saints squad that had to start fourth-round pick Ian Book and was missing their starting tackles.
But the victory over New Orleans, Miami’s seventh in a row, impressed. If you’re looking for an underdog that has yet to qualify for the playoffs, take a look at the Dolphins.
Offensive coordinator George Godsey is as creative as it gets, Tua has become a reliable passer, and wide receiver Jaylen Waddle is unstoppable. Waddle routinely beat Saints’ Pro Bowl corner Marcus Lattimore.
If they make the playoffs, Miami could upset some teams because they’ve got a solid offense and will boast one of the best defenses in the postseason.
Zona isn’t worth a look while the Cincinnati Bengals are the top overlay bet on the board
Miami is a good bet if you want to take a huge swing. But if you want to back a top underdog overlay that almost certainly will make the playoffs, the Bengals are the play.
Before getting to Cincinnati, let’s put a fork into the Arizona Cardinals. The Cards are done. Forget Zona. Sure, the Cardinals have made the playoffs, but if they couldn’t beat the Indianapolis Colts missing all five starting offensive lineman and their best defensive player in Darius Leonard, what chance do they have of beating the Cowboys, Packers, or Buccaneers?
Yep, zero. Instead of even thinking about the Cardinals, overlay players should consider putting a few dollars behind Cincinnati.
Joe Burrow gets better week-to-week. His rapport with his receivers was already decent. But in the smashing 41-21 win over the Baltimore Ravens, it became great.
Burrow passed for 525 yards and 4 TDs. Ja’Marr Chase caught 7 passes for 125 yards. Tee Higgins caught 12 passes for 194 yards and 2 TDs. Tyler Boyd caught 3 passes for 85 yards and a TD and Joe Mixon caught 6 passes for 70 yards and a touchdown.
Even C.J. Umozah caught 5 passes. Burrow spreads the ball around Drew Brees-like, which means Cincinnati’s offense could be approaching the impossible to stop status.
Cowboys, Patriots, and Colts become top favorites to back
The Dallas Cowboys should be the favorite to win Super Bowl 56. Dallas’ front seven has become one of the best in football while Dak Prescott and the offense are surging. The Boys could have scored 70 in the 56-14 victory against the Washington Football Team.
The New England Patriots’ defense failed to contain Josh Allen, which is the reason the Pats lost 33-21 to the Bills. Expect Belichick to make the necessary adjustments. So at the odds, New England is a top play.
The other team to back are the Indianapolis Colts. Once again, Indianapolis showed why they’re a contender to win the Super Bowl. The offensive line should be fine after clearing COVID protocols.
But even if they don’t, Indianapolis’ ability to rush the football takes pressure off Carson Wentz and allows the Colts’ ball-hawking defense to remain fresh. Because of the overlay odds, the Colts are the best team among the top eight choices to back.
