NFL Betting: Possible Super Bowl Matchups After Wild Card Weekend

Posted by Derrick Harper on January 12, 2021 in

This has been a season of firsts for the NFL. This is the first season that the league has had to play through a global pandemic. Even though there probably should’ve been games canceled, the league was able to play a full schedule. Another first was that there were 14 teams in the playoffs. A Wild Card team was added in each league, so there were six Wild Card games last weekend.

Now that we’ve whittled the playoff field from 14 to 8, it’s time to look at some potential Super Bowl Matchups. Let’s take a brief look at some of the scenarios that could come to fruition in Super Bowl 55 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida so you can start planning your bets and cash in against their Super Bowl odds.

Updated Possible Super Bowl LV Matchups

Green Bay Packers vs. Kansas City Chiefs

This is the matchup that everyone would love to see. This would pit arguably the two best quarterbacks on the planet against each other. These two teams sport two of the best offenses in the game, so this game would see a lot of offensive fireworks. Matt LaFleur is one of the up and coming young coaches in the game and has shown that he has a great offensive mind. Andy Reid will surely be a Hall of Famer, and he has proven that he is one of the best offensive masterminds in the history of the league.

New Orleans Saints vs. Kansas City Chiefs

This would be a matchup between the powerful defense of the Saints against Patrick Mahomes and his high-powered offense. Drew Brees nearing the end of his career, against the top young quarterback in the game would make for some great stories. The Saints offense is finally back to full strength, so this would be a fun game.

Green Bay Packers vs. Buffalo Bills

There’s no hotter team in the NFL than the Buffalo Bills. Josh Allen and company didn’t play their best game against the Colts last week, but they survived and advanced. Allen has become one of the best quarterbacks in the league. He and Stefon Diggs have been a lethal combination this season. Allen was responsible for 46 touchdowns this season, as he threw for 37, rushed for 8, and caught 1 touchdown pass.

New Orleans Saints vs. Buffalo Bills

Buffalo and New Orleans have two of the top pass rushes in the league. The two defenses would play a bigger role in this matchup than most would think. This game probably wouldn’t be the shootout that many people would assume that it would be.
