Chiefs once again have best odds to win Super Bowl

After Ian Book got his first NFL start against the Dolphins in Week 16, Mike Florio and Chris Simms weigh in on why COVID is the true other opponent this season and how much it influences the outcome of games.

An eight-game winning streak can change a lot of minds.

For the Chiefs, a stunning turnabout from 3-4 to 11-4 has caused them to return to the top of the stack in the odds to win the Super Bowl. Currently, Kansas City is a +400 (four to one) favorite to win it all. They’re followed in the odds by Packers, at +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 intriguing value play at +2800, along with the 49ers at +4000. (But not the Chargers at +4000.)

The Chiefs also are 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 wagers, the biggest wildcard continues to be the pandemic. It can, in one fell swoop, wipe out a team’s chances to progress on the playoff tree.
