Super Bowl 2022: Latest Vegas Odds for Each Favorite Entering Divisional Round
Seven of the eight top seeds in the NFL postseason are alive heading into the divisional round.
The Dallas Cowboys were the only division winner not to advance out of the wild-card round. The San Francisco 49ers pulled off the lone upset of the first postseason weekend.
San Francisco carries the second-longest Super Bowl odds going into its clash with the Green Bay Packers, who are listed as the favorite to win the title.
Green Bay did not drop from its favorite spot, but the gap on the odds board between itself and the Kansas City Chiefs narrowed after the wild-card round.
Kansas City is viewed as the top title-winning candidate in the AFC despite being the No. 2 seed. The Tennessee Titans are sixth on the futures board.
The Titans have a chance to prove that number should be lower when they play their first postseason contest on Saturday against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Super Bowl Odds
Green Bay (+350; bet $100 to win $350)
Kansas City (+380)
Tampa Bay (+550)
Los Angeles Rams (+750)
San Francisco (+1000)
Green Bay Remains Super Bowl Favorite
The Green Bay Packers were labeled as the Super Bowl favorite when the 14-team postseason field was finalized.
The Packers' futures number did not change between the wild-card and divisional round. They are still +350 for now, but those odds should drop if they beat the San Francisco 49ers.
Green Bay finds itself in the same situation it was in a year ago as the NFC's top seed. The Packers beat the Los Angeles Rams by 14 points to reach the NFC Championship Game, where they lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The biggest challenge for Green Bay on Saturday night will be dealing with San Francisco's diverse rushing attack that is headlined by Elijah Mitchell and Deebo Samuel.
Matt LaFleur's team will be in great shape if it contains the run and forces Jimmy Garoppolo to beat it over four quarters.
Garoppolo almost cost the 49ers their spot in the divisional round, as he threw a late interception versus the Dallas Cowboys.
Green Bay's secondary is its most improved area from 12 months ago, and that could show in its defense of Samuel, George Kittle and others.
The defensive back play could also set the tone for a potential NFC Championship rematch with Tom Brady and Tampa Bay. Brady torched the Green Bay secondary at Lambeau Field a year ago.
Tampa Bay has to get past the Rams to set up that rematch, and if it happens, Green Bay could be better equipped to back up its favorite tag and move on to the Super Bowl.
Tennessee Viewed as Longshot on Odds Board
The Tennessee Titans received little respect from the oddsmakers as the AFC's No. 1 seed.
Tennessee sits sixth on the Super Bowl futures board. It is only ahead of the San Francisco 49ers and the Cincinnati Bengals.
Mike Vrabel's team only needs to win two home games to reach the championship game, where its odds to win will be decidedly lower.
The Titans' futures number is a bit more shocking when you consider Derrick Henry is on his way to being activated off the injured reserve.
Henry is the Titans' top offensive asset, and if he returns to his powerful form after a two-month layoff, they could steamroll the Bengals front seven.
A divisional-round victory should lower the Titans' odds and set up an AFC Championship Game at home versus the Buffalo Bills or Kansas City Chiefs.
Tennessee beat both of its potential AFC Championship Game opponents in the regular season, and it produced a 7-2 record inside Nissan Stadium.
The Titans limited their last three home foes to 20 combined points. They shutout the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14, held the 49ers to 17 points in Week 16 and gave up three points to the Miami Dolphins in Week 17.
Those totals suggest the Titans will at least make it through to the next weekend of play. If you believe that will happen, the Titans are worth the futures bet now before they decrease.
