Rodgers injury sacks Pack's Super Bowl 52 Futures Odds

After last week’s colossal season-ending injury to Aaron Rodgers and a few top teams suffering upset losses, it was expected that there would be a lot of movement on the Super Bowl futures odds this week. The oddsmakers didn’t disappoint.
Throughout last week’s chaos, the New England Patriots survived a scare against the New York Jets and remain the Super Bowl favorites at +450. The Patriots have an interesting matchup this week when they face the Atlanta Falcons in a Super Bowl rematch, but win or lose they’ll likely still be the favorite next week.
After the Patriots, everything changes on the Super Bowl futures. Last week the Green Bay Packers had inched up to +500 and were threatening to dethrone the Patriots as Super Bowl favorites. After Rodgers broke his collarbone and the Packers lost to the Minnesota Vikings, they came crashing down to +1600 on the futures. Expect this slide to continue if the Packers continue to lose with Rodgers sidelined.
Also taking a hit this week were the Kansas City Chiefs, Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos.
The Chiefs were also making a move on the top spot, peaking at +650, before suffering their first loss of the season last week. After being upset by the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Chiefs were bumped down to +850. With three big games coming up against the Oakland Raiders, Denver Broncos and Dallas Cowboys, the Chiefs have the opportunity to head back up the odds list or potentially plummet down.
The Falcons are confounding bettors right now after losing their last two games as favorites. That cost them on the Super Bowl odds this week as they dropped from +1200 to +1400. It doesn’t get any easier for the Falcons either with three straight road games against New England, the New York Jets and the Carolina Panthers.
The Broncos appear to be in the same boat as the Falcons after a shocking upset loss to the New York Giants last week. They’ve been knocked down to +2500 after sitting at +2000 last week and also have three straight on the road against the Los Angeles Chargers, Kansas City and the Philadelphia Eagles.
Speaking of the Eagles, they look like the team to watch for bettors seeking to make a Super Bowl futures bet right now. Philadelphia has climbed up to +850 after winning four straight. A month ago, the Eagles were a +4000 underdog on the Super Bowl odds. Philadelphia boasts the top offense in the NFC right now and could easily walk away with the NFC East if they keep it up.
Also making a move on the odds list this week are the New Orleans Saints. New Orleans has quietly won three straight to go from +6600 to +3300 on the Super Bowl odds. With Atlanta floundering, the Saints have a shot at taking the NFC South, which no one would have thought after they started the season 0-2.
