Why Your Team Won’t Win The Super Bowl
Baltimore Ravens -275
Lamar Jackson might be the runaway MVP winner this season, but veteran running back Mark Ingram II was injured in Week 16. If the underrated vet isn’t back to full health by the time the postseason rolls around, maybe finding a way to slow the unstoppable Jackson is actually possible…maybe.

Kansas City Chiefs -490
The Chiefs might be firing on all cylinders heading into the postseason by reigning MVP Patrick Mahomes, but the lack of a complimentary rushing attack could derail Kansas City’s Super Bowl hopes.
San Francisco 49ers -500
The Niners have an elite defense and they finished a stellar second in scoring, but the 49ers has struggled defensively in ranking 24th in points allowed since Week 9 and oh yeah…there’s the fact that I’m still not going with Jimmy G over any of the conferences other elite quarterbacks, like Drew Brees.
New Orleans Saints -1050
The Saints might be red-hot heading into the postseason and they finished the regular season third in scoring (28.6 ppg), but the Saints are heavily reliant on superstar wide receiver Michael Thomas and the lack of another competent wideout could prove problematic against one of the conference’s elite defenses if anyone figures out a way to neutralize Thomas.
Green Bay Packers -1300
Sure, the Packers won 13 games to lock down the No. 2 seed in the NFC, but Green Bay betting backers should know that Aaron Rodgers has been completely pedestrian this season in ranking 12th in quarterback rating during the regular season. Rodgers will enter the playoffs 10th in passer rating, ranking ahead of only, Tom Brady and Buffalo’s Josh Allen.
New England Patriots -3000
Speaking of passing troubles and Tom Brady is in the midst of his biggest struggles ever. New England’s sure-fire future Hall of Famers finished the regular season ranked 16th in QBR, behind guys like Ryan Fitzpatrick and Derek Carr and that just doesn’t look good for a Patriots team that is looking to go back-to-back.
Seattle Seahawks -4700
The Seahawks have a perennial MVP candidate in superstar quarterback Russell Wilson, but the Seahawks lost their starting left tackle and their top two running backs to injury in December, not to mention the fact that Seattle ranks an uninspiring 22nd in points allowed (24.9 ppg).
Philadelphia Eagles -7500
Carson Wentz and company got hot late to win the NFC East, but the Birds are still dealing with a bunch of injuries and they recorded five of their nine wins this season over the lowly Giants, Redskins and mediocre Cowboys and that just doesn’t inspire a lot of faith in the team I believe has the toughest way to go in the NFC playoffs.
Minnesota Vikings -9000
The Vikings have an elite defense and a superstar in running back Dalvin Cook. The bad news it that the oft-injured Cook was injured in Week 6 with a chest injury and may not be back to full strength by the time the playoffs get underway. Plus, Minnesota hasn’t won a road playoff games since Prince was in his heyday.
Tennessee Titans -10300
The Titans have the look of a dangerous team entering the postseason behind red-hot Ryan Tannehill, but there are some reasons for concern in Tennessee, starting with the fact that it’s going to take a monumental effort to get past Tom Brady and a New England Patriots team that is virtually unbeatable at home in the playoffs.
Buffalo Bills -10300
The Bills have an elite defense and I believe they are the biggest bunch of overachievers in the playoffs. Unfortunately, Buffalo ranks an uninspiring 23rd in scoring and young quarterback Josh Allen is the lowest-ranked quarterback in the AFC playoffs.
Houston Texans -10300
Houston has one of the game’s best young quarterbacks in Deshaun Watson, but the Texans have a ton of issues on the defensive side of the ball in ranking 28th overall, 29th against the pass and 19th in points allowed (24.1 ppg). Will the return of JJ Watt help?
