2021 College Football National Championship Odds

2021 College Football National Championship Odds

The current college football national champions are barely a couple weeks old and here are the top 10 teams I am keeping an eye on during the offseason for a potential championship run next season. Click here fo the latest college football national championship odds.

2021 College Football National Championship Odds

Clemson +250

While the Tigers fell to LSU in this year’s national championship game, Dabo Swinney has built a program that has seen some sustained success for nearly a decade now. No matter which players depart from this year’s team, Clemson still has gifted quarterback Trevor Lawrence leading the way, not to mention another incoming class of elite recruits looking to help the Tigers improve on their jaw-dropping 29-1 record in their last 30 games.

Ohio State +350

The Buckeyes will suffer their fair share of losses from this year’s team, including superstar defensive end Chase Young and star running back J.K. Dobbins. Still, Ohio State has supremely gifted quarterback Justin Fields back under center – and the nation’s top recruiting class on the way.

Alabama +700

For the first time in ages, Nick Saban has more question marks than answers, starting with who his new No. 1 quarterback is going to be next season. Still, Saban has fielded perennially-powerful defenses and just missed out on a berth in this season’s CFP.

Georgia +900

Starting quarterback Jake Fromm, fleet-footed running back D’Andre Swift and offensive lineman Andrew Thomas are all off to the NFL Draft, but Kirby Smart has already found his new starting signal-caller thanks to the transfer of former Wake Forest signal-caller Jamie Newman. There will be some rebuilding going on with the Dawgs, but Smart has proven he can field an elite defense every year no matter who suits up.

LSU +1000

The Tigers have suffered a pair of humongous losses with the departure of Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Joe Burrow and offensive coordinator Joe Brady who is off to the Carolina Panthers. Those two losses will test seriously test the Tigers in 2020 and keep in mind, no team has won consecutive national championships in the playoff era.

Oklahoma +3000

Does it even matter anymore who’s under center for Lincoln Riley at Oklahoma? While the Sooners will have their fourth new starter under center in as many seasons, Riley has proven to be one of the best offensive minds in all of football. Still, if Oklahoma never manages to learn how to play competent defense, expect the Sooners to be bridesmaids again in 2020.

Notre Dame +3300

Starting quarterback Ian Book will be back under center for Brian Kelly in 2020 and the Fighting Irish have an All-American candidate in linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, but when it comes to competing with the likes of elite programs like Clemson, Ohio State and Alabama, the Irish simply don’t have the talent across the board that it will take to win a national championship.

Texas +4000

The Longhorns underachieved in a big way despite starting off the 2019 season ranked in the preseason Top 10. While starting quarterback Sam Ehlinger returns, the Longhorns have a bunch of question marks, particularly on defense, as they incorporate a new offensive play-caller and defensive coordinator in 2020.

Texas A&M +5000

Now, heading into Year 3 of the Jimbo Fisher era, Texas A&M returns star quarterback Kellen Mond and star running back Isaiah Spiller as well as the vast majority of their starters on defense. With Alabama and LSU both having a ton of question marks heading into next season, don’t be surprised to see the Aggies take a step forward in 2020.

Penn State +5000

James Franklin has turned Penn State into a perennial national championship contender that has won 11 games in thee of the last four seasons. Franklin has a new offensive coordinator coming in and a new offensive line coach, but quarterback Sean Clifford returns after his first year as the starter and the Nittany Lions have been elite defensively the past several seasons. Now, if only they can get past Ohio State.

Michigan +5750

Jim Harbaugh has another quarterback battle looming and that just doesn’t look good for a Wolverines program that keeps coming up short, mostly because of the pitiful play they’ve gotten under center since Harbaugh took over. I’ve got at least four Big Ten teams (Ohio State, Penn State, Wisconsin and Minnesota) being better than Michigan in 2020.

Wisconsin +6000

I know the Badgers are losing superstar running back Jonathan Taylor to the NFL Draft, but head coach Paul Chryst has fielded an elite defense every year since taking over and starting quarterback Jack Coan should be better in his second year as a start in 2020, even though the loss of Taylor worries me.

Australian Open 1st Round Matches To Watch

Australian Open 1st Round Matches To Watch

Tennis fans rejoice. The first grand-slam of the 2020 season is upon us. The futures odds to win the Australian open are out, for the Men’s and Women’s sides. And for those of you with your sights set firmly on the first round, here are the matches to watch and bet on next week.

2020 Australian Open First Round Must Watch Matches

Coco Gauff -170 vs. Venus Williams +150

It’s going to be the youngest versus the oldest when Coco Gauff takes on the legendary Venus Williams in the first round of the 2020 Australian Open. Gauff put herself on the international map by taking out Williams 6-4, 6-4, in the first round of Wimbledon in 2019. For Gauff, the future is extremely bright, but Williams isn’t done and would like nothing better than to extract some revenge in the top opening match in either field.

No. 1 Ashleigh Barty -900 vs. Lesia Tsurenko +600

These two have split two career matches with Tsurenko winning their most recent meeting in Brisbane in 2018. However, since that time, Barty has taken her game to an entirely new level. Could the World No. 1 get upset by the wily, 30-year-old Tsurenko? It’s a must-see match for sure.

No. 2 Karolina Pliskova -550 vs. Kristina Mladenovic +425

Pliskova and Mladenovic have split four career meetings while alternating wins and losses along the way. Mladenovic won the last meetings in straight sets in Dubai in 2017, but Pliskova is looking to make the grand slam breakthrough and she’s looking good after winning it all in Brisbane last week.

No. 3 Naomi Osaka -730 vs. Marie Bouzkova +515

These two have never played, but I think there’s little to no chance the defending Aussie Open champion gets upset here, seeing as how Osaka enters this year’s first grand slam event fresh off a run to the finals in Brisbane.

No. 4 Simona Halep -240 vs. Jennifer Brady +200

Halep got past Brady in three tough sets in their only head-to-head meeting in Canada last year and she reached the finals here in 2018. The explosive Halep should be focused from the outset here against the dangerous, but clearly lesser talented Brady.

No. 8 Serena Williams -2000 vs. Anastasia Potapova +1250

These two have never met, but I feel for Anastasia Potapova because I sense a huge beat-down coming in this one as Williams focuses on tying Margaret Court for the all-time lead in grand slam victories. Williams won it all in Auckland last week to claim her first title in three years.

No. 4 Daniil Medvedev -1500 vs. Frances Tiafoe +1000

These two have met only once with Medvedev claiming a 6-2, 7-5 win in Washington last year. When these two met as juniors, Tiafoe did get the win, so he should have some confidence in what I believe will be the most exciting opening round matchup on the men’s side.

No. 1 Rafael Nadal -10000 vs. Hugo Dellien +4000

While these two players have never met and Rafael Nadal hasn’t won an Aussie Open title since 2009, the only thing that could keep Rafa from routing the 26-year-old Dellien is a natural disaster of epic proportions.

No. 2 Novak Djokovic -5000 vs. Jan-Lennard Struff +2500

The reigning champ has taken on Struff twice in his career and has never dropped a set, including last year’s dominating Round of 16 win in the French Open. The Djoker wins in straight sets and without many theatrics.

No. 3 Roger Federer -3000 vs. Steve Johnson +1500

Federer has faced the former NCAA all-time great twice in his career and Johnson has never managed to take a set off the legend. With Federer looking to get back the title he won here in 2017 and 2018, I don’t think Johnson has any chance whatsoever for the upset, but seeing Federer on court is always a must for even the most casual fan.

No. 6 Stefanos Tsitsipas -5000 vs. Salvatore Caruso +2500

While these two have never met, this opening round match is must-see TV simply because the 21-year-old Stefanos Tsitsipas looks like one of the top up-and-coming young stars that could end the reign of the Big Three.

UFC UFC 246 Fight Card, Odds, Analysis

UFC 246 Fight Card, Odds, Analysis

UFC is starting its 2020 campaign by brining its most infamous fighter back to the octagon.

UFC 246 Fight Card, Odds, Analysis

Conor “Notorious” McGregor (21-4) will fight for the second time since 2016 when he faces veteran Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone (36-13, 1 NC) in a welterweight main event from T-Mobile Arena.

UFC 246 Main Card Odds

Conor McGregor -310 vs. Donald Cerrone +255

The 36-year-old Cowboy Cerrone stands 6’1” with a 73-inch reach and he’s definitely got the edge in experience with a whopping 50 career fights. He’s a well-rounded fighter that has recorded 10 wins via KO, 17 wins via submission and nine victories by way of decision. Unfortunately, Cerrone has dropped each of his last two fights including an embarrassing first round KO loss to Justin Gaethje on September 14.

Conor McGregor is 31-years-old and stands 5’9” with a 74-inch reach. The polarizing welterweight hasn’t been in the octagon since suffering a submission loss (neck crack) against Khabib Nurmagaomedov in their lightweight title bout on October 6 of 2018. McGregor has lost two of his last four fights.

Holly Holm 135 vs. Raquel Pennington +115

38-year-old Holly Holm stands 5’8’ with a 70-inch reach. The former bantamweight champ recorded one of the biggest upsets in UFC history by beating the hell out of Ronda Rousey, but she then went on to lose three straight and five of her last seven matches including a humbling first round TKO (head kick) loss to reigning champ Amanda Nunes at UFC 239 in July. 31-year-old Raquel Pennington stands 5’7” with a 67½-inch reach. Pennington went to the fifth round against Nunes back in May of 2018 but followed that loss up with a decision loss against Germaine de Randamie in November of 2018. Pennington did manage to get the split decision win over Irene Aldana in July, but she also lost to Holm via split decision at UFC 184 back in February of 2015.

Maurice Greene -130 vs. Aleksei Oleinik +110

The 42-year-old Aleksei Oleinik stands 6’2” with an 80-inch reach, but he’s lost each of his last two fights including an embarrassing first round KO loss (punch) to Walt Harris in July. Maurice Greene is 33-years-old and stands 6’7” with an 82-inch reach. Greene had his three-fight winning streak snapped in his embarrassing first round KO loss (punches) against Sergei Pavlovich in October, but he looks like the easy pick to get past a past-his-prime Oleinik at UFC 246.

Claudia Gadelha -105 vs. Alexa Grasso -115

Claudia Gadelha is 31-years-old and stands 5’4”. Gadelha comes into this bout having alternated wins and losses over her last four fights, but managed to get past Randa Markos at UFC 239 in July via unanimous decision. Alexa Grasso is 26-years-old and stands 5’5”. Grasso has alternated wins and losses over her last six fights and comes into this affair off a close, majority decision loss against Carla Esparza in September. These two fighters might have even odds, but Claudia Gadelha looks like the pick here based on experience and superior punching power.

Diego Ferreira -245 vs. Anthony Pettis +205

32-year-old Anthony Pettis stands 5’10” with a 72½ inch reach. The former lightweight champion is undeniably one of the most explosive mixed martial arts fighters in the world and he should be highly motivated to get the win here after losing seven of his last 11 fights including a unanimous decision defeat against Nate Diaz at UFC 241 in August. 34Year-ood Diego Ferreira stands 5’9” with a 74-inch reach. Ferreira has won five straight fights including a unanimous decision win over Maribek Taisumov at UFC 242 in September. While Ferreira has a nice winning streak going coming into this affair, he’s definitely never fought a fighter of Anthony Pettis’ caliber. I’m going with the popular Pettis to put on a show to potentially get back in the mix for a title shot in 2020.

  • Maycee Barber -1000 vs. Roxanne Modafferi +650
  • Andre Fili +1-5 vs. Sodiq Yusuff -125
  • Drew Dober +260 vs. Nasrat Haqparast -320
  • Grant Dawson -260 vs. Chas Skelly +220

Men’s Australian Open Odds & Analysis

Men’s Australian Open Odds & Analysis

The 2020 Australian Open marks the start of the tennis grand slam season. Which top tennis stars do you need to keep an eye on? Keep reading to find out.

Men’s Australian Open Odds & Analysis

Novak Djokovic +135

The world No. 2 and reigning Aussie Open champ has won this event seven times. Djokovic went 57-11 last year with five titles, including his fifth Wimbledon title. Djokovic is 68-8 all-time Down Under and my top pick to get it done here – again!

Rafael Nadal +450

The incomparable world No. 1 may be the top seed in this year’s Australian Open, but he’s not the favorite at +450 and nor should he be despite going a stupendous 58-7 last year with four titles including wins at the French and U.S. Opens. Rafa has won the Aussie Open title just once in his career (2009) and although he’s reached two of the last three finals, I don’t see it happening for Rafa who suffered a pair of losses to David Goffin and Novak Djokovic in the recently completed ATP Cup.

Daniil Medvedev +800

The blossoming 23-year-old Russian went a stellar 59-21 last year with four titles while reaching six straight finals and bagging two Masters titles along the way. After nearly upsetting Nadal in the 2019 U.S. Open, I believe the cerebral Medvedev is a grand slam champion just waiting to happen.

Roger Federer +1100

The legendary Federer went a stupendous 53-10 last year with four titles. While the sweet-swinging Swiss got dispatched in the fourth round a year ago, Federer won back-to-back Down under in 2017 and 2018. In 16 appearances since 2004, Federer has six wins, one finals loss and six appearances in the semis. That kind of consistency makes Fed my No. 2 pick to get it done!

Stefanos Tsitsipas +1200

The rising 21-year-old Greek star looks quite dangerous entering this year’s Aussie Open. Tsitsipas went a stellar 54-25 last year with three titles. More importantly, Tsitsipas comes into this year’s Aussie with some newfound confidence after beating Zverev, Medvedev, Federer and Thiem in the season-ending Nitto ATP Finals and reaching the semis at last year’s Australian Open.

Dominic Thiem +1800

The 26-year-old Austrian went 49-19 a year ago with five titles. While Thiem beat Federer, Djokovic and Alex Zverev at the season-ending ATP Finals before losing to eventual champ Stefanos Tsitsipas, he’s never fared well in Australia. Thiem got knocked out in the second round a year ago and has never made it past his fourth round appearance in 2017.

Nick Kyrgios +2800

The 24-year-old Australian is one of the most talented – and immature – players on the ATP World Tour. Kyrgios was knocked out of the 2019 Aussie Open in the first round and has never improved on the quarterfinal appearance he made in 2015. Save your betting bucks on Kyrgios if he does manage to reach the later rounds.

Alexander Zverev +5000

Zverev looked like a guy ready to make the slam breakthrough two years ago and although that still hasn’t happened, the young German definitely has the game and skill set to make it happen. Zverev went 44-25 last year with one title, but he did beat Nadal and Medvedev in the ATP Finals, so there’s some hope, although he’s never made it past the fourth round in Australia.

  • Denis Shapovalov +5000

Karen Khachanov +6600

While the powerful 23-year-old Russian went a modest 30-29 last year, he also reached the third round in Australia and the quarters at the French Open. Just based on pure power, Kachanov will have a great chance to upset at least one big name!

  • Alex De Minaur +6600

Roberto Bautista-Agut +6600

I like the highly skilled Bautista-Agut, but the 31-year-old just doesn’t have the firepower necessary to dispatch any of the prime time players that are seeded above him. The sweet-swinging Spaniard has never made it past the quarterfinal appearance he made last year and almost certainly won’t again this year.

Stan Wawrinka +6600

The 34-year-old Wawrinka battled his way back into the mix of elite players a year ago by going 33-19. Although the powerful Swiss star failed to win a title, Wawrinka did win it all Down Under in 2014 while making a pair of semifinal appearances in 2015 and 2017. The Stanimal has the firepower to blast anyone off the court and he’ll be motivated to get it done after two straight second round ousters.

Matteo Berrettini +8000

The 23-year-old Italian came on strong in 2019 to become a top 10 player after going 43-25 last year. Berrettini is a big dude (6-5) with a bunch of power and he recorded some quality wins over guys like Dominic Thiem, Karen Kachanov, Nick Krygios and Grigor Dimitrov among others. Still, Berrettini looks like a player that at least another year away from contending for a grand slam.

  • Grigor Dimitrov +8000
  • Andrey Rublev +8000

David Goffin +10000

If you like tennis, then you’ve got to love the efficient 29-year-old David Goffin. While Goffin went a modest 36-27 last year with no titles, he’s also recorded wins over Grigor Dimitrov and Rafael Nadal this year. Goffin reached the quarters in Australia in 2017 and could very well get at least that far again in 2020 while upsetting a top seeded player or two along the way.

Jannik Sinner +10000

If you’re not an avid tennis follower, then you might not know who the 18-year-old Sinner is, but I’m here to say that this kid is dangerous with a capital D. Sinner beat all comers in the field in last year’s NextGen ATP Finals and clearly has a maturation that is far ahead of his tender age. After climbing a whopping 450 spots in 2019, Sinner became the youngest player to finish the year in the top 80 since Rafael Nadal in 2003.

Gael Monfils +12500

The 33-year-old Frenchman is undeniable the game’s most entertaining player, but Monfils has never made it past the quarterfinal round in Australia. Monfils has been bounced in the second round in each of the last two years, making him a player that you should save your money on.

  • Marin Cilic +12500
  • Milos Raonic +12500
  • Felix Auger-Aliassime +15000
  • Diego Schwartzman +15000
  • Fabio Fognini +20000
  • Pablo Carreno Busta +20000
  • Borna Coric +20000

Top Picks To Win The Australian Open

Women’s Australian Open Odds & Analysis

The first tennis major of the year kicks off on January 20th under the smoke of the Australian bushfires. The world’s top tennis stars will be playing on the outdoor hard courts of Melbourne Park including defending champion Naomi Osaka. Keep reading to find out who you should bet on win the 2020 Australian Open.

Women’s Australian Open Odds & Analysis

Serena Williams +450

The seven-time Australian Open champion is looking quite dangerous as she gets set for the 2019 Aussie Open. Williams has a ton of motivation as she looks to tie Margaret Court for the all-time slam record of 24. More importantly, the polarizing Williams has reached the finals in four of the last six majors since the birth of her daughter and comes into this year’s Aussie Open fresh off her first title win in three years after beating Jessica Pegula in straight sets at Auckland this past weekend.

Naomi Osaka +700

The reigning Australian Open champ beat five Top 30 players en route to the title a year ago and she reached the semis at Brisbane before falling to Karolina Pliskova in the finals. The bad news for every other player on the WTA Tor is that the 22-year-old superstar still looks like a player that still has a ton of untapped potential and one that can improve on her stellar, 40-11 mark a year ago.

Ashleigh Barty +800

The world No. 1 reached the quarterfinal round in her national home tournament in Australia a year ago and looks poised for even bigger and better things in 2020. Barty won her first major in 2019 (French Open) and comes into this event with a newfound confidence after going a stellar 57-13 last year and beating the world’s top eight players in the 2019 WTA Tour Finals.

Simona Halep +900

The former world No. 1 reached the fourth round in Australia last year before falling to Osaka. However, Halep went 43-17 a year ago with one titles and reached the finals in this event in 2018. Simply put, counting out the 2019 Wimbly champ would be a massive mistake.

Karolina Pliskova +1000

I’ve been waiting for the world No. 2 to claim her first slam title for a while now and although she’s underachieved far too often the last couple of years, Pliskova is coming into this year’s Aussie Open fresh off her third Brisbane International title in four years. Pliskova went 52-17 a year ago with four titles and reached the semis at the 2019 Australian Open before falling to eventual champ Naomi Osaka in three sets in the semis.

Madison Keys +1800

Still, just 24-years-old, American Madison Keys is still searching for her maiden slam. After going a modest 28-15 a year ago with two titles, Keys comes into this year’s Aussie Open off an impressive run to the finals at Brisbane where she fell to Pliskova in a three-set thriller. Keys reached the fourth round a year ago and her best run at the Aussie came in 2015 when she reached the semifinals.

Petra Kvitova +2000

The two-time grand slam champion went 37-16 last year with two titles, but she also reached the finals in Australia before falling to Naomi Osaka. Still, I think it’s best you spend your Australian Open betting bucks on another players seeing as how Kvitova has only reached the semis or better twice here in the last dozen years.

  • Aryna Sabalenka +2000

Elina Svitolina +2500

The world No. 5 struggled a bit in going a modest 39-22 a year ago with no titles after going 44-15 with four titles in 2018, but Svitolina has reached the quarterfinal round in Australia in each of the last two years and comes into this year’s event off consecutive semifinal appearances at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open.

Angelique Kerber +2800

The 2016 Australian Open champion has struggled since winning her third Grand Slam at Wimbledon in 2018 and comes into this year’s Aussie off an opening-round loss to Sam Stosur at the Brisbane International. Still Kerber should be quite motivated and I believe she’s got plenty of upset potential after reaching the fourth round or better in each of her last four appearances in Australia and six times in her last seven.

  • Amanda Anisimova +3300
  • Garbine Muguruza +3300

Belinda Bencic +3300

The 22-year-old Swiss star went 50-22 last year with two titles and comes into this event off a semifinal appearance at last year’s U.S. Open. While Bencic has never made it past the third round appearance she reached in Australia in 2019, she’s clearly a player that has every tool necessary to become a grand slam champion at some point in the very near future.

Kiki Bertens +3300

Bertens went 55-26 a year ago with two titles and she reached the semis at last year’s Australian Open before falling to the eventual champ. Bertens reached the quarters at Brisbane this past week before losing to Naomi Osaka in three sets. This year, Bertens doesn’t get past the quarters.

  • Dayana Yastremska +6600

Jelena Ostapenko +8000

Still just 22years-old, the powerful Latvian wen an unspectacular 27-27 a year ago with one title. Still, after hiring former WTA star and slam winner Marion Bartoli as her coach late last year, Ostapenko quickly went from world No.73 to No.44 after winning 10 of her last 12 matches to end her 2019 campaign. The 2017 French Open champ got knocked out in the first round in Australia a year ago, but she possesses the power to bash anyone in the game off the court.

Super Bowl LIV Final Four Odds

Super Bowl LIV Final Four Odds

The 2020 Super Bowl final four is set, and both home teams are touchdown favorites in the AFC and NFC Championship Games! Click here for live NFL Playoff odds.

Super Bowl LIV Final Four Odds

First, the Kansas City Chiefs opened as 8½-point favorites over the Tennessee Titans in a battle to represent the AFC in Super Bowl LIV. That spread was quickly bet down to 7½ where it currently sits. The AFC Championship game total is 52-points for over-under bets. The Kansas City Chiefs were boosted to the Super Bowl LIV betting favorites after the Titans eliminated the Ravens and remain the favorites after eliminating the Texans.

In the NFC Championship Game, the San Francisco 49ers were installed as 7½-point favorites over the Green Bay Packers. The betting spread is currently 7. The AFC Championship game total is 45-points for over-under bets.

Both of the conference championships are rematches of regular-season meetings. In Week 10 the Titans downed the Chiefs in Tennessee, 35-32, and a week later, the 49ers destroyed the Packers in San Francisco, 37-8.

In last season’s conference championship games, both home teams, Kansas City and New Orleans were both 3-point favorites, and both home teams lost in overtime to the Patriots and Rams.

NFL Divisional Playoff Betting Trends

Minnesota at San Francisco -7

Minnesota has lost six of their last seven road games as an underdog of 7 points or less while going an identical 1-6 ATS during the span. Still, the Vikings have managed to cover the spread in three of their last four road playoff games as an underdog of 7 points or less.

As a matter of fact, Minnesota has a history of struggling on the road as a touchdown underdog or less. Minnesota has lost 12 of 20 such contests while going 3-8 SU over their last 11 contests as a road dog of 7 points or less.

San Francisco has won five of their last six home games as a touchdown favorite or less while going 3-2 ATS over their last five such contests. When it comes to being a home favorite of 7 points or less in the postseason, the Niners went 5-2 SU and 3-3-1 ATS in seven such playoff games from 1989 to 2013.

Tennessee at Baltimore -9½

Dating back to just last season, Tennessee has gone 3-2 SU and ATS in five road dates as a 9-point underdog or less, although one of those wins came just last weekend in New England. The Titans are 5-5 SU and 60-4 ATS in their previous 10 road dates as a 9-point dog or less. In 10 postseason games as a dog of nine or less, Tennessee has gone 4-6 SU, but 6-3-1 ATS. The Titans have won two straight postseason games as a dog of 9 or less while covering the chalk in three consecutive playoff games.

The Ravens have won two straight home games as a favorite of 9 or less, including their Dec. 1 home win over Frisco as a 6-point favorite. Baltimore has gone 5-2 SU over their last seven games as a fave of 9 or less while going an identical 5-2 SU in their previous nine such playoff dates.

Houston at Kansas City -9½

Deshaun Watson and the Texans have won four of their last six games as a road dog of 10 points or less while going 5-2 ATS in seven contests this season as a 10 point dog or less away from home. The bad news is that Houston has lost both of their two road dates in the playoff as a road underdog of 10 points or less, although those losses came back in 2012 and 2013 before Watson was even in the NFL.

The bad news for the Texans is that Kansas City has gone 3-0 SU and 2-1 ATS as a home favorite between 9 and 10 points since Patrick Mahomes became the starter while compiling a commanding 9-1 SU mark and 6-4 ATS mark over their last 10 such contests. The bad news is that the Chiefs have gone 1-2 SU and ATS in three postseason games as a home favorite of 10 points or less, including their crushing 37-31 loss against New England in last season’s AFC Championship game.

Seattle at Green Bay -3½

Not only has Seattle gone 8-1 SU and ATS in their nine road games this season, but Russell Wilson and company are 6-2 SU and 6-1 ATS in their last eight road dates as a road dog of 4 points or less, including last weekend’s win over Philadelphia where many books had Philly as a 1-point home fave. However, when it comes to the playoffs, Seattle has gone 1-3 SU in four road games as an underdog of 4 points or less. Still, Seattle did manage to snap a three-game postseason skid as a road dog of 4 or less against the Birds in their wild-card matchup last weekend and Wilson has guided the Seahawks to a near-perfect 3-1 ATS mark in four postseason road games as a dog of four points or less.

Aaron Rodgers and the packers have gone a blistering 8-2 SU and 6-4 ATS in their last four home games as a favorite of 4 points or less. The Packers managed to go 2-1 SU, but 1-2 ATS in three such home games this season. When it comes to the postseason, the Packers had won both of their playoff games as a 4-point home favorite. However, both of those wins came way back in 2002 and 1994, respectively, when Aaron Rodgers wasn’t under center.

Why Your Team Won’t Win Super Bowl 54

Why Your Team Won’t Win Super Bowl 54

What a wild Wildcard Weekend. Both Brady and Brees are done. Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson are on a collision course at Lambeau. Ryan Tannehill is living up to his former franchise QB label but has to face Lamar Jackson and the Ravens. Can’t win a big game Cousins has a date with Jimmy G. The top must see TV matchup is between Deshaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes at Arrowhead.

Why Your Team Won’t Win Super Bowl 54

Odds Against Your Team Winning Super Bowl 54

  • Green Bay Packers -1300
  • Minnesota Vikings -1700
  • Seattle Seahawks -2000
  • Tennessee Titans -3450
  • Houston Texans -5400

Baltimore Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens are the clear-cut odds-on favorite to win the Super Bowl and this team has everything. QB? Check. Rushing attack? Check. Big pass catching TE? Check. Speedy wide-receivers? Check. Defense? Check. Experienced coaching? Check, check, check! The only glaring setback? Lamar Jackson’s lack of playoff experience.

Kansas City Chiefs

Kansas caught fire down the stretch run, but the Chiefs have a glaring lack of a rushing attack (23rd) combined with the fact that they struggled to stop the run by allowing 128.2 yards per game on the ground (26th).

San Francisco 49ers

Despite winning an impressive 13 games, San Francisco struggled to pass the ball at times (13th) while also finishing 17th against the run. The Niners are also thin on talent at the skill positions outside of superstar tight end George Kittle.

Green Bay Packers

The Packers might have won 13 games this season, but Green Bay has a serious lack of talent at the skill positions, not to mention the fact that they finished the regular season ranked a modest 15th in scoring (23.5 ppg) while struggling mightily to stop the run (23rd).

Minnesota Vikings

Minnesota has a star in running back Dalvin Cook and an elite defense, but the Vikings also finished 23rd in passing while losing four of nine road games this season and finishing 15th against the pass.

Seattle Seahawks

Simply put, Seattle is far too reliant on Russell Wilson to make plays on offense. The Seahawks are injury-ravaged at running back and they’ve been mediocre at best defensively in finishing 22nd in points allowed (24.9 ppg).

Tennessee Titans

Tennessee has an elite rushing attack and superstar in running back Derrick Henry, but the Titans don’t have a ton of talent at the skill positions and their 24th-ranked pass defense could doom them against the likes of Patrick Mahomes or Lamar Jackson if they do manage to upset the Chiefs in the divisional round.

Houston Texans

Like Seattle, Houston is far too reliant on their superstar quarterback to make plays for them on offense. Oh yeah, and there’s also the fact that the Texans allowed more points per game (24.1 ppg) than they averaged this season (23.6 ppg).

Let’s take a closer look at what’s in store for each possible Super Bowl 54 matchup.

Baltimore Ravens vs San Francisco 49ers +257

The Niners threw everything they had at Baltimore in their Week 13 road dates against the Ravens, but Frisco came up just short in their 20-17 loss that day while getting limited to just three second half points and none in the fourth quarter.

Kansas City Chiefs vs San Francisco 49ers +509

The Niners have an elite defense and they finished a stunning second in scoring (29.9 ppg), but quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo clearly isn’t in the same class of elite signal-callers as Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs can score the ball too (28.2 ppg, 5th) and they caught fire late in the regular season after coming up one play short of reaching last season’s Super Bowl.

Baltimore Ravens vs Green Bay Packers +513

The Packers field a top ten defense, but Green Bay struggled to score this season in ranking 15th in scoring. Not only will the Packers struggle – like everyone else – to stop Baltimore’s Lamar Jackson, but they also won;t be able to keep pace with the league’s highest scoring offense.

Baltimore Ravens vs Seattle Seahawks +875

Seattle has its own superstar quarterback in Russell Wilson and they definitely have a huge edge in postseason experience. However, Seattle’s defense has been lackluster on far too many occasions this season and that just doesn’t bode well if they have to face Baltimore’s Lamar Jackson.

Kansas City Chiefs vs Green Bay Packers +945

The Chiefs have the statistical edge on both sides of the ball, not to mention the fact that Patrick Mahomes is now better than Aaron Rodgers. Andy Reid out-coaches counterpart Matt LaFleur if these two meet in Super Bowl 54.

Tennessee Titans vs Minnesota Vikings +1120

The Titans have a powerful rushing attack and quarterback Ryan Tannehill has elevated their offense with some eye-opening play since becoming the starter in Tennessee. Still, Minnesota has the edge defensively, their own star running back in Dalvin Cook and the slight edge at quarterback after Kirk Cousins showed some serious fortitude in the wild card round.

Baltimore Ravens vs Minnesota Vikings +1255

Minnesota’s stingy defense could potentially force Lamar Jackson to struggle after shutting down the legendary Drew Brees in their wild card opener. However, Baltimore’s defense will also get after Kirk Cousins and if this matchup comes down to quarterback play, 99 percent of football fans are going to back Lamar Jackson if these two teams meet in Super Bowl 54.

Kansas City Chiefs vs Seattle Seahawks +1565

The Chiefs have the edge on both sides of the ball and a big edge in talent at the skill positions. Russell Wilson has been an absolute magician all season long, but Seattle’s inconsistent defense just won;t be able to stop the Chiefs from scoring early and often in this potential Super Bowl matchup.

Kansas City Chiefs vs Minnesota Vikings +2215

Minnesota has a defense capable of making anyone struggle, but stopping Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City’s high-powered offense is a tall task fro anyone. If Kirk Cousins comes to play, the Vikings could make a game out of this potential matchup, but in the end, Minnesota’s lack of big play scoring ability will cause them to come up just short.

Tennessee Titans vs San Francisco 49ers +2850

The Titans won their playoff opener against New England, but Ryan Tannehill was mediocre at best, particularly in the second half. Frisco’s stout defense, combined with their underrated offense will be more than enough to lead them to the emphatic win if these two reach Super Bowl 54.

Houston Texans vs San Francisco 49ers +2975

Houston allowed more points per game than they averaged this season while relying far too much on Deshaun Watson to make plays and that just won’t cut it against a well-balanced 49ers team in this potential matchup.

Tennessee Titans vs Green Bay Packers +4975

If the Packers can’t stop Derrick Henry they could very well fall to Tennessee in this possible Super Bowl matchup. However, I think the likely scenario if these two meet up is that Aaron Rodgers out-duels Ryan Tannehill late to led Green Bay to the Super Bowl win.

Houston Texans vs Green Bay Packers +5200

Deshaun Watson is now better than Aaron Rodgers, but as previously mentioned, Houston has been wildly inconsistent in giving up 24.1 points per contest while averaging 23.6 points per game. Still, the Texans could get the upset here simply because the Texans can apparently beat – and lose – to anyone.

Tennessee Titans vs Seattle Seahawks +8000

Tennessee has the statistical edge defensively and they have a powerful rushing attack, but there’s no way I’m going against Russell Wilson, Pete Carroll and the rest of the battle-tested Seahawks if these two teams reach Super Bowl 54.

Houston Texans vs Seattle Seahawks +8300

Houston and Seattle are eerily identical in the fact that they are both mediocre defensively and rely far too heavily on their superstar quarterbacks to get it done on offense. In the end, experience – and Russell Wilson – will be too much for the Texans to handle!

Houston Texans vs Minnesota Vikings +11700

If Minnesota’s stout defense can shut down Drew Brees and the explosive Saints like they did in their wild card road upset, then they could definitely put the clamps on Houston’s Deshaun Watson and a Texan offense that lacks playmakers outside of superstar wide receiver Deandre Hopkins. The balanced Vikings will get the emphatic win if they face Houston in Super Bowl 54.
