Following their destruction of the Minnesota Vikings on NBC Sunday Night Football coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs blowing three 2-touchdown leads in a loss at the Cincinnati Bengals, the Green Bay Packers have separated themselves as the top pick for Super Bowl Predictions. With just one more week to go before the 2021 NFL Playoffs, the Packers are almost certain to open the postseason in a similar position. Meanwhile, the team that took the biggest hit on the board is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The antics of deranged lunatic Antonio Brown were the final straw for much of the betting public.

Super Bowl LVI will take place on Sunday, February 13, 2022, at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. NBC will provide television coverage.
Green Bay Packers +350
All is well in Mr. Rodgers Neighborhood as the tumult of the summer is a distant memory. Green Bay throttled the hated arch-rival Minnesota Vikings 37-10 to improve their overall Online betting Super Bowl record to 13-3 straight up and 12-4 against the spread. In the process, the Packers clinched the top seed in the NFC. Thus, they will have home field advantage for the entire NFC Playoffs. Further, the slaughter likely marked the end of head coach Mike Zimmer’s tenure with the Purple Gang.
Before everyone gets too excited about the Packers being a Super Bowl Bets lock, keep in mind that the Frozen Tundra of Lambeau Field is no guarantee of success. Last year the warm-weather Tampa Bay Buccaneers came calling to Lambeau Field and controlled most of the game in a 31-26 win that was NOT an upset. Of course, nobody will ever forget the Packers' 2007 NFC Championship Game home loss to the New York Giants in overtime. Big Blue handled the freezing weather better than the Pack on that day.
It also bears mentioning that the last time the Packers won the Super Bowl, in the 2010 season, Green Bay took the hard road with three playoff wins on the road before their 31-25 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Kansas City Chiefs +500
There has been much Super Bowl hype about the Kansas City Chiefs' improved defense over the past few weeks. But gamblers recall the terrible performance of the Kansas City stop-unit in the early weeks of the 2021 campaign. Last week’s 34-31 loss at the Cincinnati Bengals was a frustrating flashback for gamblers. Kansas City led the game by two touchdowns on three different occasions. Such a poor defensive performance hardly inspires confidence for the postseason
Tennessee Titans +1100
The Titans are back on track with two consecutive wins and covers after losing three out of five previous games straight up with four losses to the spread in that span. The Tennessee defense has tightened up, and the NFL’s 3rd ranked rushing offense helps feed into better defensive performance. Of major concern is the play of QB Ryan Tannehill. Tannehill has been woefully inconsistent with an 86.3 QB rating and a 17/14 TD/INT ratio. RB Derrick Henry will likely have to carry the offensive load if Tennessee makes a run. In just eight games, Henry has 937 yards, 4.3 yards per carry, and ten touchdowns.
Cincinnati Bengals +2000
For the first time since 2015, the Cincinnati Bengals are a playoff team. Second-year QB Joe Burrow has proven to be an asset for Odds to win the Super Bowl. After losing almost all of last year with an injury, Burrow has stormed back with a vengeance posting a 108.3 QB rating, 4611 yards passing, and a 34/14 TD/INT ratio.
Nobody was thrilled with the hiring of Zac Taylor as head coach before the 2019 season. But Taylor has proven that a quiet hire can produce far greater results than name brands such as Urban Meyer.
