Packers, Patriots Extend Lead atop Super Bowl Betting Odds

It is quickly becoming a two-horse race in Super Bowl 50 betting at the online sportsbooks, where Green Bay and New England have extended their lead atop the odds, with the Packers pegged as 17/4 favorites, followed by the Patriots at 5/1.
Both the Packers and Patriots are coming off big Week 2 victories. Green Bay exacted revenge for their 28-22 loss to Seattle in last season’s NFC Championship Game, handing the Seahawks their first loss by double-digits during the Russell Wilson era, a 27-17 victory as 3.5-point home favorites.
The win moves Green Bay to 3-0 on the season, both straight up and against the spread, while extending their SU win streak in the friendly confines of Lambeau Field to an impressive 10 games.
The Patriots looked dominant in  last week’s 40-32 triumph over Buffalo, extending their SU winning streak to five games.
The Seahawks’ Week 2 loss to Green Bay lengthens their SU losing streak to three games, and ATS losing streak to four games, fueling their continued decline in Super Bowl online betting to 10/1, after opening the season at 6/1.
The Denver Broncos are on the rise in the Super Bowl 50 odds, improving to 12/1 following their stunning 31-24 come-from-behind win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday Night Football.
It was the second time in as many outings that the Broncos needed a second-half rally to claim victory. However, they are now 3-1 SU and ATS in their past four contests.
The Arizona Cardinals’ 48-23 thrashing of the Bears last weekend has given their Super Bowl odds a lift to 14/1.
Winners of 11 games last season, the Cardinals languished at 40/1 at the start of the season, but statement wins over Chicago and the New Orleans Saints has quickly earned them a spot among the favorites.
The Indianapolis Colts and Pittsburgh Steelers round out the front of the pack, deadlocked at 16/1, closely followed by the Dallas Cowboys at 20/1.
The Colts have looked sloppy in a pair of losses to start the season, tallying just 21 total points and committing eight turnovers, while the Steelers picked up their first victory of the year on Sunday, a 43-18 beatdown of the San Francisco 49ers, to end a two-game winless streak, SU and ATS.
Dallas improved to 2-0 with a 20-10 win over Philadelphia in Week 2, but serious injuries to pivot Tony Romo and receiver Dez Bryant has contributed to their decline on the Super Bowl odds.
The Cincinnati Bengals join the winless Eagles at 22/1, followed by the Chiefs at 28/1, while six teams join the surging Atlanta Falcons at 33/1, including the Bills, Baltimore Ravens, Carolina Panthers, Minnesota Vikings, Miami Dolphins, and New York Jets.
The San Diego Chargers are next at 40/1, followed by the Niners and St. Louis Rams, each at 50/1, and the Saints and New York Giants, each sporting 66/1 odds.
The Detroit Lions sit alongside the Houston Texans, Tennessee Titans, Oakland Raiders, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Washington Redskins at a distant 100/1, followed by the Bears and Cleveland Browns at 150/1, and the Jacksonville Jaguars, who sit as 200/1 longshots.
