The best value on the Super Bowl 53 odds right now might be the Chicago Bears.
When the season started, the Bears were not on anyone’s radar as a Super Bowl contender. In fact, they weren’t even considered to be the best team in their division, coming in behind the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers on the NFC North odds.
In Week 2, the Bears were a +900 underdog to win their division. So far, though, the Bears have gone on to prove the experts wrong at 8-3, good enough for first place in the NFC North.
Despite this success the Bears remain sixth on the Super Bowl 53 futures at +1400. That’s up from +1500 a week ago and +6600 near the beginning of the season. If the Bears keep winning, and they should this week with a cupcake matchup against the New York Giants, those odds should continue to improve. If you think a Super Bowl wager on the Bears could pay off, now might be the most profitable time.
Super Bowl 53 Odds: Saints Alone as the Betting Favorite
While the Bears sit stuck at sixth on the Super Bowl odds, a new team has taken over sole possession of top spot. Last week, the New Orleans Saints were co-Super Bowl favorites with the Los Angeles Rams at +320. After winning their 10th straight last week, the Saints are now alone as the favorite at +300. The Rams are right behind them at +320.
The Saints have an interesting matchup this week on the road against a surging Dallas Cowboys squad. That’s the first of three consecutive road games against Dallas, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (the only team to beat the Saints this season) and the Carolina Panthers.
The Rams return from their bye with what should be an easily winnable game this week against the Detroit Lions. In Week 14, things get interesting when the Rams visit the Bears. What will the Super Bowl futures look like if Chicago can hand the Rams their second loss?
Super Bowl 53 Odds: Chiefs, Patriots, Steelers in Top Five
Rounding out the rest of the Top 5 on the Super Bowl futures, ahead of the Bears are the Kansas City Chiefs at +550, the New England Patriots at +650 and the Pittsburgh Steelers at +1000.
Be sure to take note of the odds for the Patriots and the Steelers, because they should look different next week, win or lose in Week 13. The Patriots face the Minnesota Vikings (currently at +2000), while the Steelers take on the Los Angeles Chargers (currently at +1400).
One last team to keep watching on the Super Bowl 53 odds are the Houston Texans. The Texans started the season 0-3, but since then they haven’t lost a game and have had eight straight wins. That has bumped them up to +2000 on the Super Bowl futures. After their 0-3 start they were listed at +5000.
