Cowboys, Seahawks Follow Patriots on Super Bowl 51 Odds

The Dallas Cowboys and the Seattle Seahawks took advantage of a loss by the New England Patriots last week to improve on the Super Bowl 51 odds.
The Cowboys continued their dominant run last week with their eighth win in a row after upsetting the Pittsburgh Steelers as a 3-point underdog. The win vaulted the Cowboys up to +550 on the Super Bowl futures. They sat at +800 a week earlier.
Dallas hosts the Baltimore Ravens this week and faces a tough schedule in the weeks after with a Thanksgiving matchup with the Washington Redskins and road games against the Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants.
Seattle handed New England an upset loss last week and they’ve won five of their last seven games. More importantly they may have finally got their offense back on track after putting up 62 points in their last two games. The upset over New England bumped the Seahawks up to +625 from +800 on the Super Bowl futures.
The Seahawks play four of their next six games at home and their road games both appear winnable against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the struggling Green Bay Packers. If you’re going to make a Super Bowl futures bet on Seattle the time may be now with their odds likely to continue to improve.
While Dallas and Seattle moved closer to the top of the odds list the Patriots remain the Super Bowl favorite despite last week’s loss. New England has dropped slightly and now sits at +230. They peaked at +200 a week ago. They do get what should be three consecutive easy wins with back-to-back road games against the San Francisco 49ers and New York Jets, followed by a home game against the Los Angeles Rams.
Teams headed the wrong way on the Super Bowl futures this week include Green Bay and Minnesota.
The Packers have lost three straight and are far from the Super Bowl favorites that opened the season. Green Bay has dropped to +2500 on the Super Bowl odds, down from +1600 a week ago and +600 where they opened the season. Sitting under .500 at 4-5 and in third place in the NFC North the Packers need to turn things around quick if they’re going to even make the playoffs.
The Vikings downfall continued last week with their fourth straight loss. Their plummet down the Super Bowls odds also continued to +4000. That’s down from +2800 a week ago and well back of the +700 odds they had last month.
One team that bettors may want to keep an eye on right now are the Kansas City Chiefs. Last week the Chiefs won their fifth straight game, but they didn’t move an inch on the futures. Kansas City was stuck at +1600 for the second consecutive week, but with road games against the Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons coming up they’ll get to prove if they are real contenders or not.
