The NFL regular season is (almost) at the halfway point. Most of the favorites are right where we expected them to be and few underdogs are in favorable situations. Also, tough early season schedules have left a few good teams with records of .500 or less. Which teams are legit contenders to win Super Bowl LII and which ones are lucky to still be in the conversation?
Betting odds to make the Super Bowl look a lot different than they did this preseason. Injuries and ‘out of nowhere’ efforts by rookies have scattered preseason Super Bowl favorites all over the board.
It appears the AFC, is once again, is in the hands of the New England Patriots. They manhandled the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday Night Football to prove they will not let go of their spot on the mountaintop.
The NFC is less clear with three or four teams neck-and-neck. I’d put The Eagles ahead of the rest of the pack after winning strong on Monday Night Football.
