6 teams you should keep an eye out for in the playoffs this year
Now that we are reaching the halfway point in the season, it is time to start talking about the Playoffs, the Pro Bowl, and the Super Bowl.
Below we have gathered the bookie’s 6 favorite teams, and we are going to explain to you why they are favorites. We have also included two teams we would put money on this year. You can find the best Super Bowl odds here.
Buffalo Bills (AFC)
The Bills are currently the bookie’s favorites to win the Super Bowl in 2021. The Bills won their division last year (AFC East) and look like they’re on track to do the same this year as long as the Patriots don’t spoil their party.
The Bills are one of the few teams in the NFL that are yet to win a Super Bowl title. For a team that hasn’t won the Super Bowl, they have had the most appearances in the Playoffs.
Kansas City Chiefs (AFC)
Despite currently being third in their division (AFC West), the Chiefs are one of the bookie’s top picks for the AFC side of the draw. They have won the AFC West for the last 5 years in a row and they have been AFC conference champions for the past two years in a row. It would be rude not to put them on this list.
The Chiefs did win the Super Bowl in 2019 but were beaten by the Bucs last year. We would put good money on them making it at least to the AFC finals.
Baltimore Ravens (AFC)
The Ravens are sitting just above the Chiefs in the bookie’s odds at the moment. They are top of their division (AFC North) and have a 6-2 record so far this season. Both the AFC North and West divisions are very tight right now.
Last year they made it into the playoffs through the wild card round but it looks like they may make it naturally into the playoffs this year. While the bookies are giving good odds on the Ravens making it to the Super Bowl this year – we would put our money on the Titans instead.
ONES TO WATCH – Tennessee Titans (AFC)
The Titans currently have the best winning record of the whole AFC – 7-2, the same as the Packers in the NFC and only being beaten in the NFL by the Cardinals with 8-1. The Titans have never won a Super Bowl, but have made it to the playoffs multiple times. They have been knocked out by the Ravens 5 times.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (NFC)
It would be rude of us not to talk about last year’s Super Bowl winners. The Bucs, spear-headed by Tom Brady, are currently sitting on top of the NFC South table. Last year they became the first team to play in a home Super Bowl and they won it too.
Last year the Bucs made it into the playoffs through the wild card round, this year it looks like they won’t have to play that extra game – could they be on for a second win in a row?
Los Angeles Rams (NFC)
The Rams are sitting in second place under the Cardinals in the NFC West but the bookies still have them as the second favorites to win the Super Bowl this year.
The Rams haven’t won the Super Bowl since 1999 and they haven’t played a playoff match for three years. But they have been having an incredible season so far.
Green Bay Packers (NFC)
With Aaron Rodgers at the helm, nobody is shocked to see the Packers on this list. They are happily sitting at the top of the NFC North table (which they have won for the last two years in a row).
They haven’t won the NFC conference or the Super Bowl since 2010 and if they want to do it again this year then they will have some tough competition.
We also worry about the health of the team after the trouble they have been having with COVID-19 over the past few weeks.
ONES TO WATCH – Arizona Cardinals (NFC)
The Cardinals look like they’re on their way to winning the NFC West for the first time in 6 years. If they make it to the playoffs (also for the first time in 5 years), they could win themselves their first Super Bowl.
The Cardinals currently have the best win record in the whole of the NFL.
