Cowboys Continue their Climb up the Super Bowl Odds

The Dallas Cowboys were back at 50/1 on the odds to win the Super Bowl at the sportsbooks less than a month ago, but after a 5-1 start to the year they’re on their way up the futures list.
Dallas has gone from 50/1 to 28/1 to a current 14/1 on the odds to win the Super Bowl at the sportsbooks over the past few weeks, following up their season-opening loss to the San Francisco 49ers with five consecutive victories over the Tennessee Titans, St. Louis Rams, New Orleans Saints, Houston Texans, and Seattle Seahawks – on the road as 9.5-point dogs.
And the Seahawks have fallen from their perch atop the Super Bowl odds this week, as they’re now trailing the 4/1 Denver Broncos at 6/1 on those championship betting lines at the sportsbooks. Seattle had been the 4/1 leader on the Super Bowl odds a week ago before they got beaten by the Cowboys. Seattle is just 3-2 on the season, while Denver is sitting at 4-1.
The New England Patriots and the San Diego Chargers are then tied for third at 9/1 on the updated Super Bowl betting lines, with the Chargers boasting the best record in the AFC at 5-1 and the Patriots at 4-2 on the season. Tom Brady and company lost two of their first four games of the season, including that ugly 41-14 defeat at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs, but they’ve bounced back with two straight wins over the Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills.
The Green Bay Packers are at 10/1 on the latest Super Bowl odds, with the San Francisco 49ers at 12/1, the Indianapolis Colts at 14/1, and the Philadelphia Eagles at 16/1. The Eagles are tied with the Cowboys at 5-1 atop the NFC East standings and are coming off a 27-0 blanking of the New York Giants. Philly’s only loss this year came at the hands of the Niners.
The next tier of contenders on the Super Bowl online betting lines at the sportsbooks have the Cincinnati Bengals at 20/1, the Arizona Cardinals and the Baltimore Ravens at 25/1, and the New Orleans Saints at 28/1. The Saints are sliding down the NFL futures after a middling start to the season has them at 2-3 SU and 1-4 ATS. New Orleans has lost to each of Atlanta, Cleveland, and Dallas so far this season, and managed to beat only the Vikings and the Bucs.
The Chicago Bears and the Detroit Lions are both now at 33/1 on the Super Bowl odds, with the lines increasing from there to Carolina at 40/1, the Giants at 50/1, the Browns and the Steelers at 66/1, and the Chiefs at 75/1. The Falcons, Bills, Dolphins, and Texans are all at 100/1 odds, with Houston having lost two games in a row to slide back to 3-3 on the season.
The Minnesota Vikings lead off the true Super Bowl betting longshots at 250/1 right now, with St. Louis, Tennessee, and Washington all at 500/1, the Jets at 750/1, and the Buccaneers at 1000/1. Jacksonville and Oakland, a combined 0-11 so far this season, are both at 3000/1.
