Buffalo Bills Backers Benefit From Shocking Steelers Collapse

  • The Pittsburgh Steelers lost to the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football.
  • This loss dropped their odds to win the Super Bowl heavily, and the Buffalo Bills are taking advantage.
  • Buffalo is now the second favorite to win the AFC, behind the Kansas City Chiefs.

LAS VEGAS - The Pittsburgh Steelers took a shocking loss to the Burrow-less Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football.

This loss marks their third in a row, and opens up a shot for other teams to make a run at being the second seed in the AFC. The biggest beneficiary of this loss, of course, is the Buffalo Bills.

AFC Standings:

  • Kansas City Chiefs 13-1
  • Buffalo Bills 11-3
  • Pittsburgh Steelers 11-3
  • Tennessee Titans 10-4
  • Cleveland Browns 10-4
  • Indianapolis Colts 10-4

AFC Championship Odds:

  • Kansas City Chiefs -150
  • Buffalo Bills +450
  • Pittsburgh Steelers +1200
  • Baltimore Ravens +850
  • Tennessee Titans +1300
  • Indianapolis Colts +1600
  • Cleveland Browns +1900
  • Miami Dolphins +4500
  • Las Vegas Raiders +40000

The Steelers are in freefall, both on the football field and on the Super Bowl odds, and when one team loses ground, another takes that ground.

The Bills have moved upwards significantly on the odds boards since Monday’s awful Steelers loss. They are now second on the boards in terms of odds to win the AFC Championship, and their Super Bowl odds are under +1000, where they have hovered since the Steelers' first loss this season.

Super Bowl 55 Winner:

  • Kansas City Chiefs +170
  • Green Bay Packers +550
  • New Orleans Saints +800
  • Buffalo Bills +900
  • Seattle Seahawks +1200
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers +1300
  • Los Angeles Rams +1400
  • Baltimore Ravens +1500
  • Pittsburgh Steelers +2000
  • Tennessee Titans +2000
  • Indianapolis Colts +2500
  • Cleveland Browns +2800

The Bills have been around +2000 for much of the season, as they are a perennially underrated team on the sportsbooks. However, they seem to be the last man standing in terms of who the second-best team in the AFC is.

At this point, it’s clearly not the Steelers, and it’s probably not any of the Ravens, Titans, Colts or Browns either.

Who else is left other than a resurgent Buffalo team, with an emerging star at QB and an absolute stud at WR? Buffalo Bills fans should feel very proud of their team’s performance this year, but there are still games to be played.

The Bills face off against the New England Patriots on Monday, 12/28/2020, and then the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, 1/3/2021.

If they win those games, their odds to win the Super Bowl and the AFC will only get shorter - up to a point.

At some point, they’ll have to face off with the Kansas City Chiefs, which will put a hard ceiling on the Bills’ odds Still, this must be a fun ride for Buffalo fans.
