Several teams are starting to establish themselves as top contenders for Super Bowl LVI after grabbing massive victories in Week 8. Others are seeing their odds slip further with underwhelming showings as the season nearly reaches the halfway point. There’s a 17th game, which looks to certainly play an impact on the first round of the playoffs given the standings.
We’re still a ways from the postseason and Super Bowl LVI, but it doesn’t hurt to take a look at championship odds for teams through seven weeks of the season. We’ll track the biggest movers in either direction while also hunting for potential value bets with these lines. All odds are courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
Green Bay Packers: +900 (+1200 entering Week 8)
As long as Aaron Rodgers is under center, it doesn’t matter who is surrounding him offensively. The Packers went into Arizona without its top three receiver and knocked off the undefeated Cardinals in a statement. Even if they were aided by some late-game miscues, the Packers showed they could win on the road. Green Bay’s running game was on point, which will be important as the weather gets colder. Rodgers looks like he’s put the drama of the offseason behind him. It’s time to go get a championship.
Tennessee Titans: +1600 (+1800 entering Week 8)
The Titans have now won three straight games, knocking off the Bills, Chiefs and Colts in the process. That last win might not seem impressive, but Indianapolis has been playing well in recent weeks and tends to have Tennessee’s number. The Titans showed they could win when Derrick Henry has an off day, which happened Sunday. Ryan Tannehill and A.J. Brown are looking like a lethal connection. If Julio Jones can become more involved, this team could be the top seed in the AFC.
Dallas Cowboys: +1000 (+1400 entering Week 8)
The Cowboys just went to Minneapolis and won against a supposed playoff contender with a backup quarterback. This team has something special brewing, and the division looks all but locked up. Once Dak Prescott returns, the Cowboys will be as good as any other Super Bowl challenger. Dallas has some bad playoff memories, so that’s likely to factor a little bit in these odds.
Value Plays: Los Angeles Rams (+750), Arizona Cardinals (+1000)
The Rams continue to chug along nicely, demolishing the lesser opponents while putting together gritty performances against supposed contenders. The loss early in the season to Arizona was an eye opener, so you can bet Sean McVay and Matthew Stafford have added some wrinkles for the next meeting between the two teams. The Cardinals had one of their worst performances of the season and still came an A.J. Green head turn away from winning. That’s the effect of Kyler Murray, who should be the league’s MVP.
Risky propositions: Cleveland Browns (+5000), New Orleans Saints (+3500)
The Browns might make some massive moves at the trade deadline, specifically surrounding Odell Beckham Jr. Baker Mayfield has not improved from his rookie season, which is a concern for the organization. There’s also a lot of injuries, making Cleveland a tough proposition for bettors. The Saints might have lost Jameis Winston for the season and even though their defense has shut down the Packers and Buccaneers, Trevor Siemian and Taysom Hill aren’t going to cut it in clutch playoff game situations.
