Patriots Sliding Down Super Bowl Odds at Sportsbooks

The New England Patriots were third on the Super Bowl betting odds as recently as a week ago, trailing only the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos on that list. After their ugly loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 4, however, Tom Brady and company have taken a tumble on the NFL futures chart.
At 8/1 on the Super Bowl online betting lines a week ago, the Patriots are now down at 16/1 on that odds list. The Patriots had no answer for Jamaal Charles and the Chiefs in their 41-14 loss on Monday Night Football in Week 4, with Brady completing just 14 of his 23 pass attempts for 159 yards with one touchdown strike and two interceptions.
And that 16/1 line has New England sitting seventh on the updated Super Bowl lines at the online sportsbooks, behind the Seahawks and Broncos along with the Cincinnati Bengals, San Diego Chargers, San Francisco 49ers, and Green Bay Packers. Seattle is the 4/1 odds favorite, with Denver next at 9/2 odds, and Cincinnati third at 9/1 odds.
The Chargers hold down a line of 10/1 on the Super Bowl odds, with the Niners at 12/1, and the Packers at 14/1. Green Bay had been down at 22/1 on those NFL futures a week ago before rolling over the Chicago Bears in a 38-17 victory in Week 4. Aaron Rodgers had a big game for the Packers in that victory, completing 22 of his 28 pass attempts for 302 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions.
The Detroit Lions, Indianapolis Colts, and Philadelphia Eagles are all at 20/1 on the updated Super Bowl odds at the sportsbooks, with the Eagles slipping from 10/1 a week ago after they lost 26-21 to San Francisco. The Arizona Cardinals, who are undefeated heading into Week 5, and the New Orleans Saints, who have won just once, are both listed at 25/1 odds.
The Baltimore Ravens are at 28/1, with the Dallas Cowboys at 33/1 after improving to 3-1 with a 38-17 win over the Saints in Week 4; the Cowboys had been back at 50/1 on the Super Bowl odds. The Bears and Giants both hold down 40/1 odds, with the Atlanta Falcons, Kansas City Chiefs, and Pittsburgh Steelers all at 50/1 odds, and the Houston Texans, Carolina Panthers, and Miami Dolphins at 66/1 odds. The Minnesota Vikings have seen an improvement from 200/1 odds to 75/1 odds since beating Atlanta 41-28 in Week 4.
The Buffalo Bills then lead off the true longshots at 100/1 on the updated Super Bowl online betting lines at the sportsbooks, with the Cleveland Browns and New York Jets joining Washington at 200/1 odds, the St. Louis Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 300/1 odds, and the Tennessee Titans at 500/1 odds with just one win in their first four games.
The Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders, at a combined 0-8 on the season, are both set at 2000/1 on the Super Bowl odds.
