All they had to do was beat the Miami Dolphins at Foxboro and these odds would look much different.
But New England choked away a 27-24 loss as 17-point home chalk and lost the No. 2 seed in the AFC. The result was slumping to 10-1 odds, great value for Patriot believers, but long-shot odds for bettors who see the Pats trending in the wrong direction.
The Ravens remain the top betting pick in Bet on Super 54 futures at +220, according to Bovada sportsbook.
Kansas City and San Francisco, who escaped with the top seed after dramatic goal-line stop against Seattle, are second betting choice at +375. New Orleans is +550 while the Pats and Green Bay Packers are 10-1.
Two long shots meet in Philly this week as the 35-1 Eagles host the 25-1 Seahawks. One of them will be good value after this week. The Eagles limped to the finish line, winning four straight with a makeshift lineup.
Buffalo is in the playoffs for the first time in forever, but remain 60-1 odds because they are the Bills unfortunately.
New England meanwhile will host the Tennessee Titans, who have the type of offense to give New England trouble. If you like the Titans, they are 50-1 right now.
