The NFL playoffs are here, with a dozen teams contending for their conference championship and a spot in Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta.
Here’s a look at the current Big Game Sports Betting Odds and how each team play their way to Super Bowl glory – and sports betting riches.
New Orleans Saints 9/4
The Saints have it all: a high-powered offense with explosive passing behind Drew Brees’ Hall of Fame arm and a dependable rushing attack with Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram. New Orleans has also been sound defensively, flexing their muscle on the stop unit in the second half of the schedule. A No. 1 seed has won the Super Bowl in five straight seasons, so the momentum is with the Saints.
Kansas City Chiefs 4/1
Patrick Mahomes has put this team on his young shoulders, making the Chiefs one of the most impressive offensive attacks in NFL history. The offense is loaded with playmakers, including trusted tight end Travis Kelce, and the Chiefs have home field throughout the AFC playoffs, which means opponents must venture into Arrowhead Stadium in January.
Los Angeles Rams 5/1
Much like the Saints, the Rams have a terrific mix of pass and run when they hold the football, with QB Jared Goff and RB Todd Gurley anchoring an explosive unit. Los Angeles also has plenty of playmakers on defense, including Pro Bowl DL Aaron Donald, who can single-handedly take over games with his disruptive pass rush.
New England Patriots 6/1
The road to the Super Bowl in the AFC still goes through Brady, Belichick, and the Patriots. New England knows how to win ball games in the postseason, with a dynamic offense loaded with options. Belichick is a master schemer, and while the Pats may not have home-field on their side, they’re always a solid bet to make the Super Bowl.
Chicago Bears 9/1
The Bears have one of the best defenses in the NFL, headlined by wrecking ball Khalil Mack. Chicago has stuffed plenty of potent offenses during the course of the season and have a fresh and unpredictable offense with Matt Nagy on the sideline. The rushing game is the core of this unit, but second-year QB Mitch Trubisky has made plays in big games for the Bears this season.
Los Angeles Chargers 16/1
The Chargers gained plenty of support to win the Super Bowl from bettors, and why not? The offense is fueled by Philip Rivers, who has a surplus of options around him. This defense has done well, and returned All-Pro LB Joey Bosa for the home stretch of the season, giving them a wild card in the pass rush.
Baltimore Ravens 20/1
The Ravens turned heads with their unconventional offense since giving the nod to rookie QB Lamar Jackson, who leads a rush-heavy attack that has rolled over opponents in the final weeks of the season. That clock-chewing attack complements one of the best defenses in the NFL, which hound opposing passers and don’t give up much in terms of yards per play a game.
Houston Texans 25/1
Deshaun Watson answered any questions about his fragile knee with a fantastic second-year campaign, leading a dangerous Houston offense that includes WR DeAndre Hopkins. The Texans stop unit has some playmakers and thrived on causing chaos and creating turnovers, ranked fourth in the NFL in takeaways.
Indianapolis Colts 25/1
The Colts caught fire in the second half of the schedule, paced by Andrew Luck’s play under center. This offense has been steady and doing enough to support a stop unit that plays a “bend but don’t break” style, snuffing opponents on third downs and in the red zone.
Dallas Cowboys 25/1
The Cowboys pulled a 180 in the second half of the schedule, sparking a stalled offense with the addition of WR Amari Cooper and getting some incredible efforts from a young defense that blossomed into one of the NFL’s elite stop units down the stretch, giving Dallas a mountain of momentum.
Seattle Seahawks 25/1
Sure and steady, the Seahawks rolled over teams with a relentless rushing game and turned to veteran QB Russell Wilson when the chips were down. While having plenty of soft spots, this defense has done enough to keep Seattle in most games.
Philadelphia Eagles 30/1
Could history be repeating for the Eagles, who lost Carson Wentz once again and turned to Nick Foles late in the season? Philadelphia enters the postseason playing very well on both sides of the ball, with a terrific pass pressure from this experienced front seven.
