Super Bowl Favorites
The Packers are the best team in the NFL, and they are one of the two teams to earn a bye week in Round 1. With the NFC playoffs going through Lambeau Field, it’s tough to imagine anyone beating them in Green Bay.
With an MVP quarterback in Aaron Rodgers and a healthy defense, the Packers are going to be favorites in every game they play going forward. All they have to do is win their next three games to hoist the Lombardi Trophy. That’s why they are the best bet to make it to the Super Bowl and win it.
It’s rare to see a No. 1 seed in a conference be +850 to win the Super Bowl. All they need to do is win two home games in order to reach that game. Not only do the Titans have a week off, but they should be getting their All-Pro running back in Derrick Henry back in Round 2 of the playoffs.
This is a physically and mentally tough team that won’t be overwhelmed in any game, regardless of the opponent. The Titans aren’t flashy at all, but they find a way to win games against good teams.
A matchup of the No. 1 seeds would be close, but Aaron Rodgers would eventually prevail.
Super Bowl 56 Prediction: Packers 28, Titans 22
Super Bowl Contenders
Despite a 10-2 record, two other teams have better odds to win the Super Bowl than the Arizona Cardinals. Even with Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins missed time, the Cardinals found ways to win big games.
The Cardinals have a great combination of a dynamic quarterback with a defense that continues to make big plays whenever they need them. If this defense can get J.J. Watt back in time for the playoffs, this team has a real chance of winning the Super Bowl.
They’ll likely be the No. 1 seed in the playoffs, which means they will have a first-round bye and will play at home in Round 2.
The Bengals will host the first game of the playoffs against the Raiders. That is a game the Bengals should win as the Raiders are coming off a short week and have to play early on Saturday afternoon. These two teams met in Las Vegas a few months ago and the Bengals won that game with ease.
If the Bengals can get past the Raiders in Round 1, they can certainly beat any other team in the AFC. And with Joe Burrow playing as well as he is, they are a legitimate contender to win the Super Bowl this season.
I mean, why not? The Steelers were +1400 to make the playoffs going into Week 18 and they somehow did it. They even survived a potential tie in the Chargers-Raiders game that came down to the final second in overtime. Pittsburgh is probably the worst team in the playoffs, but they are starting to feel a little bit like a team of destiny.
At 90:1, Pittsburgh isn’t a bad bet, especially if they can get past the Chiefs in Round 1. They would then take on the Titans in Round 2, who they defeated earlier this season. It’s a long shot, but don’t rule out the Steelers making a run in the playoffs.
