Since graduating from Davidson (The College That Stephen Curry Built), I have been writing about sports--just about any and all you can think of!--and coaching tennis in Atlanta, Ga. Beyond the four major sports, I am an avid tennis fan and cover the ATP Tour on a daily basis. If I'm not busy writing, you can generally find me on a tennis court or traveling the world wherever a sporting event takes me.

Every week we will track the Super Bowl LV odds to win, examining which teams moved up or down following recent results.

A huge all-undefeated showdown between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Tennessee Titans took place in Week 7 and obviously had a considerable impact on the pecking order. Pittsburgh prevailed to become the only perfect team still left in the NFL, but it has not yet climbed to the top of our Week 8 Power Rankings or the Super Bowl odds. The 6-1 Kansas City Chiefs remain the cream of the crop in both departments.

Let’s take a look at the Chiefs’ odds and at teams who either improved or declined over the past week.

Still the favorite 

Kansas City Chiefs (+400) – The Chiefs continue to hold the title as Super Bowl favorites (not to mention Super Bowl defending champions) at +400. And it’s hard to see that status coming to an end in the near future, because their next two games are at home against the Jets and Panthers followed by a bye. The Baltimore Ravens remains +600 second choices.

Moving up

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+800) – The more things change (Tom Brady is now in Tampa Bay instead of New England), the more they stay the same (he is once again a very realistic Super Bowl contender). The Buccaneers blasted Las Vegas 45-20, improving to 5-2 and enhancing their Super Bowl odds from +1200 to +800.

Pittsburgh Steelers (+850) – Pittsburgh is not far behind as the fourth choice at +850. The Titans are its lone impressive victory this season, but a serious amount of respect can be earned when Mike Tomlin’s team goes up against the Ravens this weekend. AFC North supremacy is on the line.

Los Angeles Rams (+1700) – The Rams are in a tough spot because the NFC West is by far the best division in football. In the NFC East, of course, they would be a lock to win the division and host a playoff game. Still, even in the West this team cannot be discounted; it is 5-2 after beating the previously 5-1 Bears on Monday Night Football.

Moving down

Tennessee Titans (+2000) – Tennessee soared from +2800 to +1500 in the span of two games, but it is down to +2000 following its first loss of the 2020 campaign. Derrick Henry is a force to be reckoned with, but the Titans’ defense (and their kicker) needs to pick up the pace if they want to get back in the focal point of the picture.


New England Patriots (+6000)
– At one point, the new-look Patriots were 2-1 with a loss only to Seattle on the last play of the game. Now they are 2-4 and often not even coming close in games. Cam Newton and company are coming off a 33-6 defeat to San Francisco in which he threw three interceptions. They have scored 28 total points in their last three games.

Dallas Cowboys (+10000) – The Cowboys are falling even faster than New England, with four losses in their last five contests and a starting quarterback (Dak Prescott) who is out for the year. They have lost their last two by a combined 63-13 margin. By default, Dallas still has a real chance in the NFC East—but certainly not anything more than that.
