- Though the Rams beat the Chiefs in a crazy Monday Night Football game, Los Angeles is no longer the favorite to win Super Bowl 53.
- Oddsmakers have instead pegged the Saints as the clear Super Bowl favorites following an easy win over the Eagles.
Those poor Rams got the job done against the 9-1 Chiefs in one of the craziest NFL games ever, but their Super Bowl 53 odds have taken a hit.
Maybe don’t let up 50+ points next time and your odds won’t drop?
Meanwhile, the Chiefs’ odds improved! Rams fans must be wondering what the H is going on with Westgate’s updated numbers.
Here are the latest Super Bowl 53 odds following a pivotal Week 11.
All odds via the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook as of Tuesday at 2 p.m. ET. Click on the date to sort.
New Orleans Saints: +275 to +200 (+6.6% Implied probability)
A lot of folks thought that the Saints game vs. the Eagles would result in a let-down spot for New Orleans. Boy were they wrong.
The Saints dominated Philly. Decimated the Eagles like DDT.
Even though the Rams beat the Chiefs to improve to 10-1, New Orleans’ recent tour of destruction has convinced oddsmakers to make it the new favorite.
Kansas City Chiefs: +450 to +350 (+4.0% IP)
The Chiefs gave the Rams a good fight and were rewarded for their efforts. Also boosting their odds is the fact that the Chargers were upset by Denver.
If the Chargers had won, they would have been tied with Kansas City in the loss column, making a division title for the Chiefs no longer a sure thing.
The Chiefs have proved they can eat with the big dogs, though. Their two losses have both been by three points on the road to the Pats and Rams.
After their bye week, they’ll be eased back into action against the Raiders.
Chicago Bears: +3000 to +1400 (+3.5% IP)
Da Bears picked up a huge divisional win vs. the Vikings that has greatly boosted their chances at a divisional title. They’ve rattled off four straight wins and have two more victories than the Vikings.
The one hairy aspect, however, is that Mitchell Trubisky is dealing with an injury that has kept him out of practice.
He’s expected to play on Thanksgiving, but the Bears definitely need him if they want to stay atop the NFC North.
Los Angeles Chargers: +1200 to +2000 (-2.9% IP)
As I mentioned before, the Chargers had a grand opportunity to gain some ground on Kansas City.
Sure, they didn’t know that the Chiefs would lose on Monday night at the time, but as seven-point favorites, the Chargers were in a must-win spot.
Minnesota Vikings: +2000 to +5000 (-2.8% IP)
The Vikings looked … not good vs. Chicago. It turns out they can’t handle Bear weather as they really struggled offensively.
Minnesota will host Aaron Rodgers and Co. this Sunday, followed by an even tougher test in New England.
Though the Vikes currently hold the sixth playoff spot in the NFC, it’s quite possible they’ll have a losing record in a couple of weeks.
It’s a shame they couldn’t beat the Bills earlier in the year. A real shame.
Green Bay Packers: +2500 to +5000 (-1.8% IP)
Though they’re a game behind Minnesota, the Packers still have a shot to win the Super Bowl, likely because of the Aaron Rodgers factor.
A loss this weekend would all but end their chances, but luckily for them, there are a ton of teams in the NFC within a game or two of a .500 record.
Slip into one of those wild card spots and you never know what will happen.
