Week 9 of the NFL is in the books and the future odds to win the Super Bowl have once again been updated. The usual suspects in the Broncos, Patriots, and Seahawks are the favorites.

Great Value

Pittsburgh Steelers- 20/1
Odds makers really don't give the Steelers enough credit each week. Ben Roethlisberger has won 2 Super Bowls. Now, with the help of LeVeon Bell and Antonio Brown, he's thrown for 6 touchdowns in each of his last 2 games while beating up on the Ravens and the Colts. Antonio Brown is th hottest receiver in the NFL. This team is for real.

 

Dallas Cowboys -25/1 at Bet365
I have stuck by this football team and I'm not about to dessert them now. Let's remember, before Tony Romo injured his back, the Cowboys were 6-1. Now, people are writing them off and thinking that they'll be lucky to make the playoffs. Although Romo hasn't always made the correct decisions, nobody can question his toughness and he'll be back shortly. DeMarco Murray has clearly been the best source of offense in the NFL this season. Because of Romo's injury, Dallas is once again at higher odds. Grab it!

 

San Francisco 49'ers -25/1
This is a football team only 2 years removed from a Super Bowl appearance. Now, they're 4-4 after an embarrassing last second loss to St. Louis, but this is still a very talented football team that can ride a wave of momentum with Colin Kaepernick at the controls. When the 49'ers are good, they're one of the best teams in football and 25/1 are appealing odds. Before placing your NFL pick, keep in mind this is as good as they'll be.

 

Miami Dolphins -50/1
I'm really hesitant to put the Miami Dolphins on a list like this, but they have been destroying the opposition lately and Ryan Tannehill has looked like Joe Montana. The Fins are coming off of a 37-0 destruction of a decent San Diego Chargers team. If Tannehill keeps playing like this, you just never know. That said, if you were to back this team, wager a small amount.

 

The Favorites

New England Patriots -6/1
The Patriots have to be the hottest team in football and after they beat up on the biggest favorite to win the Super Bowl in the Denver Broncos, people have to love them more; 6/1 are great NFL odds.

Tom Brady is proving that he can still dominate in this league when Rob Gronkowski is in the mix. The only thing that worries me about the Pats is the running back position and the fact that New England isn't nearly as good on the road as they are at Gillette Stadium. It doesn't look like the Giants will be in the Patriots way. This is a great chance for the Belichick-Brady regime to win a 4th ring.

 

Not So Appealing

Denver Broncos-7/2
Until the Broncos can prove that they can actually beat Seattle and beat the Patriots on the road,I'm not backing them. Peyton Manning appears to have lost some velocity on his throws and he's known for choking in the big game. When Eli has 2 Super Bowls and Peyton has 1, that's a problem to me when considering Peyton Manning's legacy. He's not the best quarterback in football history until he wins possibly one or two more Lombardi Trophies. People are too quick to anoint him as the best that has ever played.
