And get ready to “buy low” if a potential Super Bowl champion sees improved odds due to a rough spell.
Week 3 Super Bowl Odds Report
New England Patriots (+333)
Antonio Brown will apparently not be suspended and his impressive debut in Week 2 moves the Patriots odds from +400 to +333 at DK Sportsbook as the prohibitive favorites to repeat as Super Bowl champions.
While it may seem like adding Brown makes the Pats unstoppable, his off-field issues and potential chemistry problems could subvert the team from the inside. Taking them against the field at +333 at DraftKings Sportsbook is getting a bit ridiculous.
Kansas City Chiefs (+700)
Even with Tyreek Hill (shoulder) absent, Patrick Mahomes lit up the hapless Raiders defense. Mahomes is not experiencing any sort of sophomore slump and the Chiefs appear the biggest threat to the Patriots with an improved defense.
Los Angeles Rams (+900)
The Rams odds moved from +900 to +1100 after a narrow Week 1 win in Carolina, but move back to +900 on DraftKings Sportsbook after handling the Saints with Drew Brees (thumb) out.
The Upper Tier
Dallas Cowboys (+1300)
The Cowboys are rising from +1800 last week and the improved play of Dak Prescott has a lot to do with it. There are no glaring weaknesses on their roster and the NFC East looks winnable with Philly struggling out of the gate.
Philadelphia Eagles (+1400)
The Eagles lost Malik Jackson (foot) for the season and lost Tim Jernigan (foot), Alshon Jeffery (calf), and DeSean Jackson (groin) to injury in a narrow loss at Atlanta Sunday night. Jackson will be out multiple weeks and those other key players could also miss time.
Green Bay Packers (+1600)
Aaron Rodgers came out hot in his second game under new HC Matt LaFleur and the offense should continue to improve throughout the season. Green Bay’s defense is legit, prompting some bettors to place big wagers on the Packers to win it all.
Baltimore Ravens (+2000)
Lamar Jackson has flashed immense upside through two weeks of play against inferior opponents. But will the Ravens be able to hang in Kansas City this weekend?
Cleveland Browns (+2000)
The Browns somehow moved up from +2500 to +2000 after beating an injury-depleted Jets squad. Taking a bet on Cleveland to win it all seems extremely foolhardy.
Atlanta Falcons (+2500)
The Falcons continued their run of success in home openers by edging the Eagles in the final minutes on Sunday night. Atlanta is still a flawed team with a middling defense, so the jump from +4000 to +2500 is a bit unwarranted.
Seattle Seahawks (+2500)
While the Browns and Falcons have almost no shot at a title, the Seahawks are an intriguing longshot at these odds since Russell Wilson is a transcendent talent and he’s surrounded by playmakers.
San Francisco 49ers (+3300)
It appears the 49ers strong defensive showing in Week 1 was not a mirage. San Francisco reloaded on that side of the ball during the offseason and will be a tough draw for opponents if Jimmy Garoppolo can regain his form.
New Orleans Saints (+1400)
The Saints are the most notable slider of the week with Drew Brees (thumb) set to miss six weeks or possibly more with torn ligaments. Another blown call cost the Saints and it seems like a repeat run at the Super Bowl may not be in the cards, leading books to drop them from +750 to +1400. However, if you want to get value on the Saints, now is the time to bet.
Los Angeles Chargers (+2500)
The Chargers should’ve lost to the Colts in Week 1 and fell in Detroit the following week. Clearly, this isn’t a championship-caliber team without Melvin Gordon. And the Bolts aren’t likely to challenge the Chiefs or Pats even if Gordon returns.
Minnesota Vikings (+2700)
Kirk Cousins confirmed the worst fears of Vikings fans by throwing costly picks to cost Minnesota any shot at a late comeback in Green Bay. As a result, the Vikings slid from +2200 to +2700 on DK Sportsbook.
Chicago Bears (+2800)
Since they needed a lucky roughing the passer call and apparent clock operator error to win in Denver, the Bears actually slide from +2500 to +2800 following their first win.
Houston Texans (+3300)
Playing on a short week after an emotional loss, the Texans nearly coughed a division game away against the surging Jaguars. This is an interesting buy-low spot to take Houston to win the AFC South (+140).
Pittsburgh Steelers (+6000)
Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) is done for the season and the Steelers offense has struggled badly without Antonio Brown or Le’Veon Bell. They take a huge slide from +2500 to +6000 following the injury news.
Carolina Panthers (+8000)
Cam Newton might be approaching retirement the way he’s looked so far this season. If Newton can’t run and can’t deliver the ball accurately from the pocket, Carolina is sunk.
