We’re now six weeks into the regular season and finally getting a feel for how these teams look. Odds to win the Super Bowl keep changing, and while a few of the usual suspects remain, some of our favorite NFL teams have been knocked from the top. Here are the four Super Bowl contenders we think have a real chance to make it to Atlanta as well as their odds to win the big game, straight outta Vegas. We’re also giving you an update on current Super Bowl ticket prices from Fan Hospitality and some of our competitors.
We’ll keep updating our picks, the official odds, and Super Bowl ticket prices each month, so check back in November when things really heat up!
Super Bowl 53 Contenders
We’ve got several weeks of games to make judgments on now, and our top four Super Bowl contenders have been steadily changing. The Jags, Packers, and Vikings have fled the scene, while the Rams remain firmly in first place. The Chiefs have steamrolled into the top (like we said they would), while the Patriots can’t be pushed aside. Drew Brees and the Saints have also made a sneaky appearance as Super Bowl contenders following Week 6. Here’s a quick breakdown of the current favorites to make it to Atlanta and win Super Bowl 53.
Los Angeles Rams
These guys are the undisputed favorites to win the Super Bowl. The Rams are currently 6-0, making them the only remaining unbeaten team in the NFL. Their high-scoring game against the Vikings was a true test of the team’s offense and young quarterback, Jared Goff. Recent close calls against the Broncos (winning by only three points) and the Seahawks (winning by two) show that they’re not perfect, but they can pull it out when it matters. After Week 5, Goff had thrown for the most yards and had a higher passer rating than every QB except Drew Brees. If the Rams can remain healthy, it’s hard to see them falling to any of their NFC West opponents. Guess that’s why they’ve got 3 to 1 odds to win it all!
Kansas City Chiefs
Despite collecting their first L against the Patriots in Week 6, the Chiefs look mighty tough. They’re averaging at least 30 points per game and some of the fewest sacks in the NFL right now. It’s possible that the Chiefs are the best team in the league, and it’s easy to see why: They’ve got Patrick Mahomes, who definitely ranks among the top quarterbacks, while Tyreek Hill might be the best and fastest wide receiver in the NFL. It’s a bold statement, but Stephen A. Smith thinks the Chiefs will be representing the AFC in the Super Bowl this year. They can run the ball and throw the ball, and playing at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City is a tough proposition for opponents. Sure, their defense is horrible, but they score fast and Mahomes is the truth!
New England Patriots
Yup, still here. Critics got down on the Pats after their early losses to the Jags and Lions left them with a 2-1 record, but Vegas never worries about them… for good reason. Brady, Gronk, and company have shown that they’re not worried either after their win against the Chiefs, who honestly appeared unstoppable until Week 6. Brady showed why he’s the GOAT, even at 41 years old, taking his team to victory with great decision-making and a fourth-quarter drive that led to a field goal for the win. Julian Edelman’s return after a four-game suspension and the acquisition of Josh Gordon in Week 4 puts the Patriots back on the map. Don’t doubt ‘em.
New Orleans Saints
This is one you might not have seen coming. But Drew Brees just set the record for most career passing yards this month and the Saints defense has greatly improved in the past few weeks. After Week 6, most outlets and power rankings agree the Saints are a top-four team. At 4-1, they’re on top of the NFC South and coming off of a relaxing bye week before a tough next few games against the Ravens, Vikings, and Rams. (And in 18 years, Brees has yet to beat the Ravens.) But hey, so far, so good. They put up 43 points against the Redskins and the Falcons and an ungodly 48 points against the Bucs. Clearly, Vegas believes.
