NFL Betting – 2019 Super Bowl Odds Update Wildcard Weekend

Written by:

With nothing to play for on the final weekend of the NFL regular season, the New Orleans Saints predictably laid an egg in losing to Carolina.


However, that didn’t prevent oddsmakers from tabbing the No. 1 seed in the NFC as the favorite to win Super Bowl LIII on the updated odds board at

It took until the last Sunday but the field is set in the race for the Lombardi Trophy. Not surprisingly the top two seeds in each conference are the four favorites on the board with the Kansas City Chiefs ( +471 ), Los Angeles Rams ( +536 ) and New England Patriots ( +604 ) right behind New Orleans.

And proving how hard it is to maintain success in the NFL, seven of the 12 playoff teams are new to the festivities this season. The Bears exceeded expectations to win 12 games and the NFC North, just missing out on a first-round bye. They are the favorite among the teams playing on Wild Card Weekend with odds of +1104, but they’ll have to knock off the defending champion Eagles, who hold down the longest odds of a repeat at +3900.

Here’s a look at the current Super Bowl LIII odds at as we enter the first weekend of postseason play.

Super Bowl 53 Odds at

New Orleans Saints +245

Kansas City Chiefs +471

Los Angeles Rams +536

New England Patriots +604

Chicago Bears +1104

Baltimore Ravens +1200

Los Angeles Chargers +1565

Seattle Seahawks +3100

Indianapolis Colts +3181

Houston Texans +3200

Dallas Cowboys +3400

Philadelphia Eagles +3900

Having home field advantage isn’t a guarantee that the Saints and Chiefs will get to Atlanta in early February. But it sure is nice knowing that all competitors must come to your barn to try and advance. We saw the top seeds from each conference move to the Super Bowl last season with the Eagles using their edge to get Nick Foles accustomed to playing as the starter. Philly also had a chip on its shoulder playing every postseason game as an underdog.

We also saw how difficult it is to win in New England in January when Tom Brady led his troops to a comeback win over Jacksonville in last year’s AFC Championship. So there is something to be said about playing a 16-game regular season schedule to earn home field advantage.


The AFC race goes through Kansas City and the Chiefs are looking to reverse their recent postseason failures. They dropped a Wild Card matchup to Tennessee last season and they are just 1-10 in the playoffs since reaching the AFC Championship following the 1993 season.

KC stumbled down the stretch and it took them a little longer than they expected to shake the Chargers, but the Chiefs wrapped up the No. 1 seed in the AFC with a win over the Raiders on Sunday. This is the first postseason for Patrick Mahomes, but the league leader in touchdown passes and likely MVP is ready to shine on the big stage.

They are the defending champs until someone beats them and the Eagles showed just how determined they are to repeat. Winning their last three games with Foles behind center, Philly needed Chicago to beat Minnesota on Sunday. And their wish was granted. Now the Eagles get to travel to the Windy City to take on the surprise team of the season.

And we can’t overlook Brady and the Pats, who earned a pass to the Divisional Round by knocking off the Jets. Since Brady’s first full season in 2001, the Pats have reached the Super Bowl eight times winning the Big Game on five of those visits.

It’s not uncommon to see a wild card team reach the Super Bowl. It’s happened nine times since the Wild Card Round was introduced in 1978 and six times that team won the title. The Packers were the last to do it in the 2010 season, winning three games on the road before tripping up the Steelers in Super Bowl XLV. However, winning three games on the road just to get to the Super Bowl is a chore. Oddsmakers listed the Chargers at +1565 as the favorite among the four wild card entries with the Seattle Seahawks ( +3100 ), Indianapolis Colts ( +3181 ) and Eagles ( +3900 ) next in line.
