We have movement atop the odds list! There’s a new Super Bowl favorite in the house and it is the squad formerly known as the Greatest Show on Turf.

Rams: +800 to +450 (+7.1% implied odds)
Talk about a meteoric rise. The Rams are now thee team to beat in the NFL, as they’ve overtaken the Patriots atop the odds list. They thoroughly dismantled the Cardinals with ease and are now 2-0 straight up and against the spread.
The Rams’ +54 point differential is best in the league by more than 20 points and 32 points better than the next-best 2-0 team. These boys can play.
Jaguars: +1400 to +800 (+4.4%)
The Jaguars went out and silenced the mighty Patriots this weekend, doing so with relative ease. The offense looked good. The defense looked good. They once again appear to be a legit team.
If the Patriots aren’t the same team they’ve been for the past decade, the Jags have as good of a shot as anybody in the AFC, especially with the Steelers and Texans, who both also started the season with +1200 odds, winless through two weeks.
Chiefs: +2000 to +1200 (+2.9%)
Patrick freakin’ Mahomes, am I right? Guy’s out there trying to throw for 80 TDs this season. The Chiefs’ defense could use some tinkering, but their offense is absolutely loaded with weapons and has been the most dangerous one in the league so far.
They head home in Week 3 for the first time this season to host another young QB in Jimmy Garoppolo and the Niners.

Steelers: +1200 to +2000 (-2.9%)
The Steelers’ offense was firing against the Chiefs, but their defense was an absolute sieve. They were favored in each of their first two games, but have emerged 0-1-1.
To make matters worse, they have to head to Tampa to take on Ryan “The Second Coming of Peyton Manning” Fitzpatrick and the Bucs’ nuclear offense.
An 0-2-1 start would make reaching the playoffs an uphill battle.
Patriots: +500 to +600 (-2.4%)
The Pats are back to where they started before the season at +600. They seemingly lay an egg early on in the season each year, which is then followed by mass hysteria and panic, only to end up with a Super Bowl appearance/win.
This year is a bit different, though, as they went out and got …
… Josh Gordon.
His acquisition isn’t going to move the odds on its own, but the Patriots could definitely see their odds improve quite a bit over the coming weeks if he forms an instant connection with Brady and their offense starts clicking.
Texans: +2000 to +4000 (-2.4%)
The Texans make the fallers section for the second consecutive week.
They were a public darling this past week against the Titans, who were without a slew of offensive linemen and their starting quarterback.
Their implied odds have dropped from 7.7% at the start of the season to just 2.4%.
