The final week of the season is here. That means the NFL playoffs are right around the corner.
Here’s a rundown of the NFL odds associated with the top three favored teams to win Super Bowl LVI.
Kansas City Chiefs (+500)
- Date: Saturday, Jan. 8th, 2022
- Time: 4:30 PM EST on ABC/ESPN
- Venue: Empower Field at Mile High Stadium in Denver, CO
- Participants: Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos
After last week’s loss, the Kansas City Chiefs (11-5) have fallen to the number two seed in the AFC. They’ll be on the road against their divisional rival Denver Broncos (7-9) in Week 18.
Last week, the Broncos lost 34-13 against the Los Angeles Chargers. It was their third straight defeat.
These two teams last met in Week 13. Patrick Mahomes threw 184 yards with one interception and a rushing touchdown in a 22-9 victory.
After starting the season 3-4, the Chiefs won their next eight games by an average of 16.25 points. Last week, they lost 34-31 on the road to the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Chiefs (-10) are favored this week in Denver. If they win and the Tennessee Titans lose on the road to the Houston Texans, Kansas City can lock up home-field advantage throughout the NFL playoffs.
Green Bay Packers (+400)
- Date: Sunday, Jan. 9th, 2022
- Time: 1:00 PM EST on FOX
- Venue: Ford Field in Detroit, MI
- Participants: Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions
At the start of Week 18, the Green Bay Packers (13-3) are the favorites to win Super Bowl LVI.
Aaron Rodgers (-400) is favored to win this year’s MVP award, which he won last year as well.
After starting the season with a 38-3 road loss to the New Orleans Saints, the Packers have gone 13-2. They’re on a five-game winning streak, averaging 34.6 PPG during that stretch.
Last week, during their final home game of the season, Rodgers threw for 288 yards and two touchdowns in a 37-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Their win over the Vikings secured home-field advantage throughout the NFL playoffs for the second year in a row.
The Packers are 8-0 at home, and it looks like the road to the Super Bowl goes through Green Bay.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+700)
- Date: Sunday, Jan. 9th, 2022
- Time: 4:25 PM EST on CBS
- Venue: Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL
- Participants: Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Carolina Panthers
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (12-4) look to repeat as Super Bowl Champions.
The Bucs clinched the NFC South in Week 16 with a 32-6 win over the Carolina Panthers (5-11). A week prior, they lost in a brutal game at home to the Saints, 9-0.
The Bucs (-7.5) are favored at home against the Panthers in Week 18.
Last week, they beat the New York Jets 28-24 after trailing by seven at halftime. Tom Brady threw for 410 yards with three touchdowns and one interception.
Three of their four losses this season came on the road. With Green Bay clinching home field throughout the playoffs, Tampa may have to travel to Lambeau Field in January, a tall order for any team.
