The Kansas City Chiefs (12-1) at 2/1 odds and the Green Bay Packers (10-3) at 6/1 odds are the top two favorites to win the Super Bowl, according to a recent update by the Westgate Super Book in Las Vegas.
Will we get to see Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers meet in Super Bowl 55? If you follow the money, the Packers and Chiefs are the public’s betting favorites to meet in the Super Bowl.
After 14 weeks of the 2020 NFL season, the Chiefs are still the consensus favorite to win back-to-back championships. After the Pittsburgh Steelers (11-2) lost two games in a row, Kansas City remains the clear-cut favorite to win the AFC Championship.

The Packers (10-3) and the New Orleans Saints (10-3) are jockeying for position as the top NFC team on the futures board. Right now, the Packers are the top dog in the NFC after the Saints snapped a nine-game winning streak. Rookie Jalen Hurts led the Philadelphia Eagles to an upset over the Saints.
The Packers saw their Super Bowl odds bump to 6/1, while the Saints are right behind them at 7/1 odds.
AFC Playoff Picture: Ravens on Bubble
If the playoffs were to begin today, the Chiefs would earn a bye as the #1 seed in the AFC playoff bracket. The Steelers, Bills (10-3), and Tennessee Titans (9-4) would earn automatic spots as division winners. The three wild cards in the AFC would go to the Cleveland Browns (9-4), Indianapolis Colts (9-4), and Miami Dolphins (8-4).
The Ravens won a shootout on Monday Night Football to beat the Browns and improve to 8-4. The Ravens are currently on the AFC wild-card bubble. The Las Vegas Raiders shot themselves in the foot with a Week 14 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Things got so bad in Sin City that Jon Gruden fired his defensive coordinator.
With Kansas City the team to beat, the Bills offer up the best value from the AFC at 10/1 Super Bowl odds. Don’t sleep on the Tennessee Titans in January, however. Derrick Henry is on the cusp of rushing for 2,000 yards and he shifts to an entirely extra gear in the postseason, which we all witnessed last year. The Titans are 25/1 odds to win the Super Bowl.
NFC Bubble: Slim
The Packers currently own the #1 seed in the NFC and would earn the first-round bye if the postseason started today. The Saints, LA Rams (9-4), and Washington (6-7) would secure automatic bids as division winners. The three wild-card spots in the NFC currently belong to the Seattle Seahawks (9-4), Tampa Bay Bucs (8-5), and Arizona Cardinals (7-6).
The Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears are both 6-7 and outside the bubble looking in. The New York Giants and Washington keep flip-flopping spots as the NFC East division leader. The NFC Least race is still wide open.
NFC West Champ Inside Track to Super Bowl?
Will an NFC West team represent the NFC in the Super Bowl again this season? The Rams lost two years ago against the New England Patriots, while the San Francisco 49ers were upended last season by Kansas City.
Going into last year’s postseason, both the Saints and the Packers had lofty expectations to secure a Super Bowl berth. Neither team failed to rep the NFC because the 49ers were the hot team in the NFC last January.
Heading into this year’s postseason, the Packers and Saints are in the same position as last season. Aaron Rodgers looks his best in years, which is why the Packers are 6/1 odds to win the Super Bowl. Drew Brees isn’t getting any younger, and he’s been banged up with fractured ribs. This could legit be the last season he plays in the NFL, so the Saints are running out of time to win one more Super Bowl for Who Dat nation with Brees under center.
The Seahawks and Rams are still fighting for the NFC West title with a 9-4 record apiece. You get the feeling that whichever of those two teams wins the NFC West will end up in the Super Bowl … just like last year with the Niners.
Don’t count out Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Bucs at 14/1 odds to win the Super Bowl. Brady knows that once he gets the Bucs into the postseason, they’re a legit threat to run the table and secure a spot in the Super Bowl.
