Current Super Bowl Odds 2021
Before the start of the season, sportsbooks post (future) odds for each team to win the Super Bowl. Oddsmakers calculate the odds in large part based on the team’s roster and schedule. As the season unfolds, odds are constantly adjusted and updated.
With the 2020-21 NFL season in full swing, each team’s odds have shifted since the spring of 2020. This year is particularly interesting because of injuries to stars such as Drew Brees and Dak Prescott along with changes to rosters – most notably Tom Brady joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With that said, let’s take a look at the Super Bowl odds for 2021.

NFL Teams With Improving Super Bowl Odds
Los Angeles Rams
It may seem like a long time ago but the Rams are only 2 years removed from the Super Bowl appearance in 2018. This year, the team’s odds have vastly improved since the pre-season (+4000) as they now sit at +1200 to win it all. The team is playing good football headed into December and already has a win over the Tampa Bay Bucs, which was one the favorites in the NFC at the start of the season.
Green Bay Packers
The Green Bay Packers have been quietly flying under the radar this season and are headed into December with an 8-3 record. The team had some pre-season drama as they drafted a QB with their first pick but Aaron Rodgers is playing good ball down the stretch and as a result, the oddsmakers like the Packers chances out of the NFC at +1200.
Russell Wilson and Pete Carroll are poised to make another deep playoff run in the 2020-21 NFL playoffs. Their odds before the season were pretty good but given the team’s play throughout the year the oddsmakers had no choice but to adjust their odds (from +2000 to +1100)
Pre-Season Super Bowl Favorites Who Are Struggling
The Baltimore Ravens were a popular Super Bowl pick from the AFC before the season kicked off at +650. Since then, they’ve dropped to +1800 mainly due to the Pittsburgh Steelers dominating their division and the team’s ongoing battle with COVID-19, which has sidelined star quarterback Lamar Jackson.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The biggest pre-season story was Tom Brady to Bucs, which instantly put them into the Super Bowl conversation (+1500). While the odds have slightly improved (+1200), the team is not playing great football and Brady may be finding out just how difficult the NFC is relative to the AFC East. The Bucs are a team to keep an eye on during the last quarter of the NFL season.
