Streaking Chiefs Continue Steady Climb Up Super Bowl 50 Odds

Powered by a six-game straight up winning streak that leaves them atop the AFC Wild Card race, the Kansas City Chiefs continue to climb the Super Bowl 50 odds, now sitting at an intriguing 22/1 in NFL futures betting.
The Chiefs have been dominant since halting a five-game SU losing streak that threatened their season, posting six straight wins against the spread, including five by double-digit margins.
Smothering defense has fueled the Chiefs’ revival, with the club surrendering more than 20 points just once in their last eight, allowing just 14.25 points per game, while scoring over 34 per game in their last five.
With their final four games coming against teams with losing records, Kansas City looks poised to return to the postseason for just the fourth time in 10 years, but with Denver holding a three-game lead in the AFC West, the road to Super Bowl 50 for the Chiefs likely includes a stop on Wild Card Weekend.
While the Chiefs continue to climb the Super Bowl odds, the Minnesota Vikings have plummeted, dropping to 40/1 following a stunning 38-7 loss at home to Seattle last weekend.
The Vikings have been one of the feel-good stories of this NFL campaign, amassing an 8-4 SU record to challenge Green Bay’s dominance in the NFC North.
However, a lack of offense has contributed to two SU losses in their last three, ending a five-game win streak that had lifted them to 12/1 in Super Bowl 50 betting.
Minnesota faces a tough road down the stretch, including this week’s clash with Arizona, followed by dates with Chicago, the Packers, and the New York Giants, and will need more from an offense that has produced just 10 points per game in their last three if they are to end a two-year playoff drought.
The undefeated Carolina Panthers continue to lead the way on the Super Bowl odds, perched at 4/1, ahead of the New England Patriots, who maintain 9/2 odds despite suffering losses in the past two weeks.
The Cardinals’ six-game SU win streak has lifted them to 11/2, while the Seahawks look to have finally shaken off their poor start, winning three straight, including their first two over winning teams, and now sit at 15/2.
The Broncos are currently a 17/2 bet, ahead of the AFC-leading Cincinnati Bengals at 9/1, and the resilient Pittsburgh Steelers, who join the favorites with 10/1 odds despite trailing in the AFC Wild Card hunt.
The Packers join the front of the pack at 12/1, well ahead of the Indianapolis Colts, who sit alongside the Vikings at 40/1, and the Giants, New York Jets, and Dallas Cowboys, each with 50/1 odds.
Philadelphia’s win over New England has lifted them to 66/1, followed by the Washington Redskins, deadlocked with the Houston Texans, Buffalo Bills, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 100/1, the Atlanta Falcons at 150/1, the Bears at 250/1, the Miami Dolphins at 300/1, and the Oakland Raiders at 500/1.
The Baltimore Ravens have fallen to 750/1, while the St. Louis Rams join the New Orleans Saints, Detroit Lions, and Jacksonville Jaguars as 1000/1 longshots.
