Oddsmakers Favor AFC Over NFC To Win Super Bowl 54

  • The San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers combined for a regular-season record of 26-6.
  • Meanwhile, the two AFC teams finished the regular season with a combined record of 21-11.
  • With the Chiefs as the favorite to win the Super Bowl, oddsmakers are favoriting the AFC.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – With only two games left before the Super Bowl, the final NFL bets are being placed on the 2019-2020 season.

Though sports bettors can choose which team they think will win it all with great odds, bettors can also break down the Super Bowl champion by conference in order to make the bet easier.

As the Kansas City Chiefs (+135) are the favorite to win Super Bowl LIV, they keep the AFC atop the favorite conference to win the Super Bowl.

Sitting at -125, bettors have must better value taking a risk on the NFC to win the Super Bowl (-115).

Conference Odds

But, is this the right play? Oddsmakers may lean heavily toward the Chiefs, but the abilities of both teams on the NFC should have bettors reconsidering this.

Betting On The NFC To Win The Super Bowl

The San Francisco 49ers (+165) are the second favorite team to win the Super Bowl, which makes sense as they powered through the regular season being the last team to remain undefeated. They held down the one seed in the NFC and nearly staked their claim as the best team in the NFL before Baltimore’s amazing run.

Somehow, oddsmakers have lost faith in the 49ers, whether that be from the impressive play of the Chiefs of late or from the focus being removed from the Niners in general. However, their defensive abilities, ability to secure and hold leads, and running game keep them as a likely candidate to win the Super Bowl.

Their opponent in the NFC Championship, the Green Bay Packers (+650), may sit as the longshot to win the Super Bowl, but their abilities should never be questioned. Targeted as an unimpressive team from the start, the Packers pulled off a 13-3 season – good enough for the two-seed in the NFC.

With Aaron Rodgers at the helm, this team should never be removed from a gambler’s Super Bowl betting board. Add in Davante Adams and the 20-touchdown season of Aaron Jones, and the Packers are a force to be reckoned with.

Maybe the oddsmakers at online sportsbooks believe that the NFC teams will beat up on each other so much that the AFC victor will stroll through the Super Bowl. Or maybe the sportsbooks think that the Chiefs are so far above the rest, that it is their Super Bowl to lose.

Many other prop bets on the Super Bowl  are available to bettors, but this one certainly deserves a once-over.

With two talented teams in the NFC still in contention, the belief is that the AFC could win the battle, but it will likely fall to the other side. If anything, bettors can take the NFC to win it all and then hedge their bet through live betting once the two teams are established.
