Patriots, Cardinals and Panthers All Co-Favorites to Win Super Bowl 50
No surprise to see the Carolina Panthers and Arizona Cardinals as co-favorites to win the Super Bowl, but to see the New England Patriots is a bit of a surprise all things considered.
The Patriots stumble into the playoffs losing four of six, yet they sit along side the Panthers and Cardinals as 9-2 favorites to win Super Bowl 50.
The value seems to be with three teams with two coming from the AFC and one from the NFC.
The NFC team is the Minnesota Vikings who sit at 30-1 odds to win. The reason I think there is value is the Vikings not only come into the playoffs with confidence, by winning that final game at Lambeau on Sunday, they won the NFC North and got a home game to start the playoffs.
If they are able to get by Seattle, they would travel to the Cardinals where they narrowly lost a few weeks back.
The two AFC teams that present the most value in my opinion are the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Kansas City Chiefs. We haven't seen the Chiefs lose since the Royals were playing for the World Series and the Steelers have such a potent offense accompanied with experience, they have to be considered dangerous.
The Steelers have 8-1 odds and the Chiefs have 25-1 odds.
Here are the rest of the odds to win the Super Bowl according to the Westgate Las Vegas Super Book.
|New England Patriots||9-2|
|Kansas City Chiefs||25-1|
|Green Bay Packers||30-1|
