NFL Betting: Super Bowl LV Odds Update Jan. 7th Edition

Posted by Derrick Harper on January 7, 2021 in

The NFL regular season is over, and we’ve entered the playoffs. As of right now, we have 14 teams in the playoffs, but after this coming weekend, we’ll be down to eight. Before the odds change, it’s time for bettors to make their value picks and make their early Super Bowl bets. Let’s take a look at the early Super Bowl odds.

Updated NFL Super Bowl LV Odds

Kansas City Chiefs +200

Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs are once again the favorites to win the Super Bowl. The Chiefs have one of, if not the best offense in the league. Mahomes always seems to find a way to win. Andy Reid is a top coach in the league, and he always pushes the right buttons.

Green Bay Packers +433

Aaron Rodgers has played at an MVP level this season. He threw for over 4500 yards with 48 touchdown passes and just five interceptions. He and Davante Adams make up one of the most lethal combinations in the game. The Packers are playing well right now, and look like the best team to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl.

Buffalo Bills +600

The Buffalo Bills are the hottest team in the league headed into the playoffs. Josh Allen has had a great season. The addition of Stefon Diggs has made the Bills offense one of the top units in the league. Combine their offense with a very strong defense, and you have a team that can make a Super Bowl run.

New Orleans Saints +800

If Drew Brees is healthy, Alvin Kamara recovers from COVID, and Michael Thomas returns to form, the Saints can win the NFC. That’s a lot of ifs, but the Saints can do it. They have a very strong defense, they’re experienced, and they have the tools to win.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers +900

Tom Brady is on a quest to win his seventh Super Bowl. He’d especially love to win one without Bill Belichick. Brady and the Bucs offense has been great over the last five games, scoring 37 points per game. Todd Bowles and the defense have been playing better as well. If Mike Evans is fully healthy, the Bucs have a great shot at winning it all.

Baltimore Ravens +1000

Many thought that the Ravens were done at midseason. Lamar Jackson wasn’t playing well, injuries and COVID were hurting the team, and the defense wasn’t playing well. Fast forward a few weeks, and the offense has been revitalized by a powerful rushing game. Jackson has been not only running the ball well, but passing with good accuracy. If the Ravens can put everything together, look out!

Seattle Seahawks +1300

Will we once again see Russ cook? Early in the season, the Seahawks were throwing the ball all over the field. DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett looked like All Pro wide receivers. Later in the season, the Seahawks went to a more conservative offense. Defensively, the team was horrible early on. Seattle has made immense improvements on the defensive side of the ball, as they’ve given up an average of 12.5 points per game over the last five games. If they can keep this up, and Wilson can be the clutch performer that he’s been in the past, anything is possible for Seattle.
