After nine weeks, the 2018 NFL season is starting to take shape. As expected, there has been a few surprises along the way.
Among the biggest surprises has been the disappointing play of the Jacksonville Jaguars. One year after coming extremely close to making their first ever Super Bowl appearance, the Jags are now 3-5 and facing must-win games every weekend to keep their postseason hopes alive.
On the flip side, you’d be hard-pressed to find anybody outside of the Kansas City area that would have predicted the Chiefs would enter Week 10 as a one-loss team.
So, who do the Vegas oddsmakers now like to win Super Bowl 53 next February? Here’s a look at the odds-on favorites heading into Week 10.
New England Patriots (+500)
The Patriots got off to a slow start, but they have been as impressive as any other team in the league over the last six weeks. As we all know, you cannot write off the Pats as long as they have Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.
New Orleans Saints (+400)
With their massive win over the L.A. Rams in Week 9, the Saints now control their own destiny when it comes to locking down home field advantage throughout the NFC Playoffs.
New Orleans’ high-octane offense likely just got better with the addition of wide receiver Dez Bryant, and their defense, despite a slow start, is one of the better units in the NFL. And with Drew Brees, who is showing no signs of slowing down, under center, it’s hard not to love the Saints’ Super Bowl chances in 2018.

Los Angeles Rams (+350)
The Rams’ bid for a perfect season came to an end in Week 9 against the Saints, but the Vegas oddsmakers have still pegged Sean McVay’s squad as the odds-on favorite to win Super Bowl 53.
This team is absolutely loaded on both sides of the ball, and will only get better when All-Pro cornerback Aqib Talib returns to action.
Other notable teams:
- Kansas City Chiefs (+600)
- Pittsburgh Steelers (+1000)
- Los Angeles Chargers (+2000)
- Minnesota Vikings (+2000)
- Carolina Panthers (+2500)
- Philadelphia Eagles (+3000)
- Houston Texans (+3000)
- Chicago Bears (+4000)
- Green Bay Packers (+5000)
