Super Bowl Betting Odds: Steelers closing in on Chiefs

The Baltimore Ravens’ second loss of the season had a significant impact on Super Bowl odds across sportsbooks.

The Kansas City Chiefs’ odds have shortened a bit at most sportsbooks, with the defending champions being offered at +350 by BetMGM and PointsBet, down from +400 from last week.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are now the second betting favorite at +600 at BetMGM and +550 at PointsBet. The Steelers remain the lone undefeated team in the NFL after coming from behind to beat the Ravens on Sunday.

The Chiefs are being offered at +160 to win the AFC Championship by BetMGM, followed by the Steelers (+300) and Ravens (+500).

Baltimore’s Super Bowl odds have lengthened to +1000 by BetMGM and +900 by PointsBet. Virtual co-favorites with the Chiefs by many sportsbooks early this season, the Ravens are now also behind the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+650) and the Seattle Seahawks (+800) at both books.

Tampa Bay is the +260 favorite to win the NFC Championship by BetMGM, followed by the Seahawks (+340), New Orleans Saints (+600) and Green Bay Packers (+600).

The New York Jets remain the league’s lone winless team at 0-7, with PointsBet setting their over (-130)/under (+110) win total at 1.5. BetMGM is offering the Jets at +250 to go 0-16, while the book is offering the Steelers at +1100 to finish the regular season undefeated and +2000 to go 19-0 with a Super Bowl title.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson strengthened his MVP odds with a four-touchdown game in Seattle’s win over the San Francisco 49ers. With 26 touchdown passes through seven games, Wilson is the -164 favorite by BetMGM and -175 favorite by PointsBet.

That puts him well ahead of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who is being offered at +300 by BetMGM and +350 by PointsBet. BetMGM is also offering Wilson at -164 in a prop bet against the field (+135).

While Trevor Lawrence’s Heisman Trophy hopes have taken a hit following the Clemson quarterback’s positive COVID-19 test, he remains the overwhelming favorite to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Despite Lawrence saying last week that there’s a chance he returns for his senior year, the Clemson star is being offered at -1000 by PointsBet to go No. 1 overall. That remains unchanged from last week, with Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields next at +500, followed by Oregon offensive tackle Penei Sewell (+750), who opted out of this season to focus on the draft.
