For the last two decades, it seemed like Tom Brady and the New England Patriots were the most consistent things in football. No matter what was happening, you could always count on both parties to deliver.
The same scenario appears to be unfolding in an otherwise wild 2021 NFL season, with Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers headlining Super Bowl 56 odds at +500 entering Week 13, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. The Patriots won their sixth straight game and saw their odds climb to +1000. New England’s odds could improve further when they play the Bills Monday in Week 13. Could we see a rematch of Brady and his former team for all the marbles?
The Green Bay Packers bounced back from a loss with a dominant win over the Los Angeles Rams. Aaron Rodgers played through his toe fracture and has the Packers ready for a deep postseason run, along with a ferocious defense capable of wrecking any team’s game plan. Green Bay is +800 to win the whole thing.
The Cincinnati Bengals and San Francisco 49ers could represent value plays at +2800 and +4000, respectively. Both teams are built around strong rushing attacks, and Cincinnati has shown it can throw the ball around well with Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase. The 49ers do have the superior defense, which has flexed its muscles of late.
The Los Angeles Chargers and Minnesota Vikings might be teams to stay away from when it comes to Super Bowl futures. Both looked poised to grab another victory in Week 13 before being smacked in the mouth by the Broncos and 49ers, respectively. These two squads could still make the playoffs but the luster from a few weeks ago has worn off substantially.
Here’s a look at full Super Bowl odds heading toward Week 13.
