Patriots Join Packers as Super Bowl 50 Favorites at Sportsbooks

The New England Patriots were idle in Week 4, but that has not prevented them from continuing their rise up the Super Bowl 50 betting odds where they now join the Green Bay Packers as 7/2 favorites at the online sportsbooks.
The Patriots return to the gridiron undefeated, with a 3-0 record, crushing the Jacksonville Jaguars 51-17 in their Week 3 matchup to extend their current straight up win streak to six games and make them 16-2 in their past 18.
The Packers have also been perfect, taking a 4-0 record into their Week 5 date with the St. Louis Rams as 9-point favorites, looking to extend their already intimidating SU win streak at Lambeau Field to 12 games.
The Seattle Seahawks round out the top of the class in Super Bowl 50 betting, with strong 7/1 odds, despite escaping with a narrow 13-10 win over Detroit on Monday to improve to 2-2 SU, but drop to 1-5-1 ATS in their last seven.
Bolstered by an improved defense that has surrendered just 17.3 points per game, the Denver Broncos have gained ground on the Super Bowl favorites, climbing to 10/1 on the strength of their 4-0 record, after opening the season with soft 14/1 odds.
The Cincinnati Bengals’ 4-0 record has lifted them to the top of the AFC North standings, and buoyed their Super Bowl odds to 15/1 from a distant 50/1 at the start of the season.
The high-flying Atlanta Falcons have turned things around this season, opening with four straight victories after posting a dismal 6-9-1 record a year ago, and join the Arizona Cardinals at 18/1.
The Cardinals opened with three dominant victories, but a shocking 24-22 loss to St. Louis has tempered their futures odds, which had peaked at 9/1 last week.
The Indianapolis Colts have struggled to a 2-2 start after opening their campaign leading all AFC squads with 17/2 Super Bowl odds, and have tumbled to 20/1 entering their Week 5 Thursday Night Football matchup with Houston.
The Carolina Panthers have yet to receive a big boost at the sportsbooks since opening the season 4-0, joining the New York Giants at a middling 35/1, while the underachieving Philadelphia Eagles sit alongside the injury-riddled Dallas Cowboys at 35/1.
The Buffalo Bills, who have failed to string together consecutive straight up wins this season, have stalled at 40/1, deadlocked with a pair of AFC North rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens.
The New York Jets own the NFL’s best defense and a solid 3-1 record, but lag at 50/1, joined by the Minnesota Vikings and San Diego Chargers, but ahead of the Kansas City Chiefs at 75/1.
The Rams follow at 90/1, trailed by the Washington Redskins at 100/1, the New Orleans Saints at 125/1, and four clubs at 150/1, including the Lions, Miami Dolphins, Oakland Raiders, and Tennessee Titans.
The Texans have fallen to 250/1, while the Chicago Bears join the Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers at 300/1, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers sport 400/1 odds, and the Jacksonville Jaguars fall to 500/1 longshots.
