Each and every week of the NFL season, the Super Bowl Odds have changed.
As always with a futures market in the NFL at PA online sportsbooks, many things can affect the movement. Whether it is injury, poor play, or just bad luck…factors are aplenty.
Entering Week 12, there has been a plethora of movement for some notable teams in the NFL, including the Philadelphia Eagles dropping…again.
DraftKings Sportsbook provides us with a chart of some notable odds movement from last week to this week, as we enter Week 12 of the NFL. Let’s take a look:
Super Bowl Odds Movement Week 12
|Team||Pre-Week 11||Current||Odds Shift|
(+2000 to +2500 Super Bowl Odds Movement)
It’s not often a loss to the New England Patriots is an “embarrassing” one, but the Eagles had a chance to win the football game.
The Eagles defense played very well, allowing just one touchdown (on a trick play) and limiting the Patriots to under 300 yards of total offense. Tom Brady only had 216 yards passing and threw no touchdowns, Sony Michel averaged just 3.3 yards per carry, and the Eagles were able to get pressure and make one-on-one tackles.
Unfortunately, the offense was to blame for the loss. They averaged just over five yards per passing attempt, Miles Sanders and Boston Scott ran for a total of 64 yards on 18 carries and the Eagles wide receivers were non-existent, including two dropped touchdown receptions from Nelson Agholor.
Due to this loss, DraftKings Sportsbook has reduced the Eagles odds to win the Super Bowl from +2000 to +2500, and it’s likely to move again after this week’s tough battle with the Seattle Seahawks. Time is running out, and the Eagles need to string a bunch of wins together, and quickly, if they want to stay in the playoff hunt.
The Steelers sit at 5-5 after a 21-7 loss to the Cleveland Browns on Thursday Night Football, and are three games out in the division race. Pittsburgh is only one game out in the Wild Card race, so they are still alive for the playoffs.
With that being said, DraftKings Sportsbook does not have much faith in Pittsburgh going anywhere should they make the playoffs, as their Super Bowl odds fell from +5000 last week to +6600 this week.
James Conner re-aggravated a shoulder injury, Juju Smith-Schuster left Thursday’s game, and Ben Roethlisberger is not walking through the door to take the Steelers to the playoffs, as struggling QB Mason Rudolph continues to man the huddle in Pittsburgh. The Steelers have one of the easiest remaining schedules in the NFL, but if they want to make any noise in the playoffs…someone has to step up on offense.
The Steelers‘ divisional rival a few hours south is having quite the opposite season, as the Baltimore Ravens are one of the better teams in the NFL.
Lamar Jackson continues to have a terrific season, as the Baltimore offense still leads the NFL in points scored. The Ravens’ defense has played unexpectedly well, being just one of a handful of AFC teams to allow under 200 points on the season so far. Entering this season, the Ravens were a candidate for maybe a wild card berth with a struggling defense and a young quarterback. Not anymore.
With Jackson at the helm and an offensive scheme that takes full advantage of his abilities, the sky is the limit for the Ravens.
