Latest Odds for Super Bowl 2021 – December Update With Most Likely Matchups
The NFL season is flying by at a torrid pace. Despite an ongoing global pandemic threatening to disrupt the season at every turn, the league is still on course to get to Super Bowl 55 in Tampa Bay.
Before the season started, Tom Brady and his Buccaneers looked like a decent bet to be the first team to win a title in their own backyard. Almost 14 weeks into the season, and that’s at least questionable now.
Instead, this is a wide-open race, with a few favorites potentially leading the race.
It’s December, and bettors can’t be certain who will hoist the Lombardi Trophy when the dust settles in 2021.
All you can do is reflect on the information presented to you, note the latest Super Bowl 2021 odds, and make the best possible decision when betting on Super Bowl 2021.
To help you do that, let’s break down the current Super Bowl 55 odds and assess which Super Bowl 55 matchups are the most likely to happen this season.
Latest Super Bowl 55 Odds
You can find the most recent Super Bowl 55 odds at BetOnline, which is where I pulled these from. Few sites offer as good of odds and update them as routinely, but as always, look around online before placing a bet.
Kansas City is appropriately priced as the favorite. I’ll dive more into them later in this post, but they have an MVP contender in Patrick Mahomes and the most stacked offense in the league.
The Chiefs are the defending Super Bowl champions, and at 10-1, it doesn’t really look like anyone can beat them but themselves.
"There is no team in football I trust more than the Kansas City Chiefs. They have the best player and plenty of talent around him…The defending champs have done nothing this year to change the perception that they're the best team out there." ?— Kansas City Chiefs (@Chiefs) December 3, 2020
That said, the Steelers are also 10-1, while the Packers, Saints, Rams, and Bills all have just three losses at the time of this writing.
Sportsbooks are getting the pricing right, as the teams near the top of the latest 2021 Super Bowl odds deserve to be there.
It’s funny to see New England priced at +6600 this late in the year, and there are certainly some Super Bowl 55 sleepers to salivate over.
But who is actually getting to Super Bowl 55? Let’s explore that in a look at the most likely Super Bowl 55 matchups.
3 Most Likely Super Bowl 55 Matchups
The Chiefs are probably the best team in the league, and it’s likely they’ll at least get to the big game. Bettors need to ask themselves if KC is going to repeat, though.
Of course, it’s also possible they don’t get there at all. You can bet on the Chiefs to win, you can bet on someone upsetting them, or you can even make money betting on the Super Bowl based solely on getting the matchup correct.
In an effort to help you there, let’s break down the most likely Super Bowl 2021 matchups.
Chiefs vs. Saints
Mahomes and co. were in the big game and won last year. They can’t face the Niners, though. San Francisco has collapsed, and the best bets to get to the Super Bowl from the NFC now figure to be the Saints and Packers.
New Orleans is the complete team on paper. Sean Payton has kept the Saints undefeated despite losing Drew Brees to injury, and that’s the second time in two years he’s managed to do that.
The Saints presently have home-field advantage in the NFL playoffs, and if that sticks, they just might finally break their playoff curse.
Kansas City, of course, is more explosive than anyone offensively. Outside of the Steelers proving they aren’t frauds, I don’t see a team capable of stopping them in the AFC.
Chiefs vs. Packers
The other team in the NFC that has a real shot at getting to Super Bowl 55 is Green Bay. Aaron Rodgers is going toe-to-toe with Mahomes in the 2020 NFL MVP race, and it’s quite possible we get an epic face-off to decide the winner, once and for all.
Green Bay’s run defense is problematic, and the NFC has a lot of strong teams that could knock them out. However, the Packers manage games quite well, and their offense is among the best in the league.
The Packers actually could have a shot against the Chiefs due to that offense. I doubt they’d actually win, but getting to the big game isn’t so far-fetched.
Steelers vs. Buccaneers
I don’t need to re-hash the Chiefs, Saints, or Packers anymore than I have. Obviously, if you’re looking for endless Super Bowl matchup combinations, they also need to be factored into the equation.
That said, Pittsburgh started the year at 11-0, has a nice passing game, good coaching, and an aggressive defense. Said defense has had major injuries bring them down a notch lately, but if they can round back into form, this is a team capable of edging out the Chiefs in the playoffs.
And while they no longer can be perfect, Pittsburgh shouldn’t suddenly be brushed off.
The Steelers’ loss to Washington allows us to stop comparing Pittsburgh to unbeaten teams of the past and start thinking about how the team stacks up against other Super Bowl contenders this year. @RileyMcAtee:https://t.co/jBqGMhT8pk— The Ringer (@ringer) December 8, 2020
Tampa Bay is also loaded on offense and has some very nice pieces on defense. Their secondary is probably too erratic to feel great about right now, but their pass rush and run defense are spot on.
A clash between two aging star quarterbacks in Ben Roethlisberger and Tom Brady would be quite the way to cap a wild 2020 NFL season.
As noted, there are so many other potential 2021 Super Bowl matchups. These teams are just the ones that are most likely to be involved in the season’s final game.
There are sleeper teams like whoever comes out of the NFC East, Miami, and so many more. But the best teams with the best talent tend to win out in the end.
Barring a random wild card run, I think Super Bowl 55 is some variation of the options listed above.
The Team to Beat
It’s one thing to bet on what the Super Bowl 55 matchup will be. It’s another to correctly predict who will win the 2021 Super Bowl.
I said the Chiefs would repeat before the season began and considering their 10-1 start and dominant offense, I see little reason to get away from them now.
Patrick Mahomes is en route to a second MVP nod, and Kansas City really doesn’t have any glaring holes. They proved last year and so many other times that they could win in any fashion, and they’re never out of any contest.
Their one loss on the year required a team to score 40 points against them, and in every other moment of adversity, Kansas City fired back and got the win.
There’s something to be said for a team constantly taking heavyweight style blows from an entire league focused on taking them down a peg or two. It hasn’t always been perfect, but the NFL’s collective efforts to humanize this powerhouse squad simply haven’t worked.
In reality, Kansas City has only (gulp) gotten better.
Kansas City simply has too much talent, and their coaching is on another level. It will be interesting to see the AFC try to slow them down, or someone from the NFC give them a fight.
But when Super Bowl 55 comes and goes, it’s likely the Chiefs will be standing tall.
