2017 Super Bowl Odds to Win for AFC, NFC Championship Teams

Here are the odds for the New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers, Green Bay Packers, and Atlanta Falcons to win Super Bowl LI in Houston.

 

The AFC and NFC Championship Games are set.

The Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots will square off in Foxboro, while the Green Bay Packers get the Atlanta Falcons in the Georgia Dome.

BookMaker.eu has released each team's odds to win Super Bowl LI:

New England Patriots: +150 (bet $100 to win $150)

The odds-on favorite to win the 2017 Super Bowl, the Patriots have covered four times as double-digit favorites this season, including an impressive 18-point win and cover over the Texans in the Divisional Round. They're six-point favorites against the Steelers in the AFC Championship and beat them by 14 in Week 7, but that was without QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee).

Atlanta Falcons: +275 (bet $100 to win $275)

The favorite to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl, the Falcons demolished the Seahawks in the Divisional Round by a 36-20 score and now face a Packers team they edged in the regular season, 33-32. The AFC Championship has the highest Over/Under of any conference championship or Super Bowl in the modern era.

Green Bay Packers: +450 (bet $100 to win $450)

The Packers stunned the Cowboys in Arlington, Tex., 34-31, and are now four-point dogs against the Falcons. They've won eight straight games (7-1 ATS) and have put up 30 points in six straight. And they could have No. 1 wideout Jordy Nelson (broken ribs) back Sunday after he missed the win over Dallas.

Pittsburgh Steelers: +500 (bet $100 to win $500)

The Steelers' odds would certainly be higher if they didn't have a date with the Patriots on Sunday. They boast arguably the NFL's best running back in Le'Veon Bell, who has set the Steelers' post-season rushing record in consecutive games (167, 170).

We asked several SportsLine experts who'd they'd bet to win it all given the odds. Here's what they said:

Emory Hunt: "I would bet the Steelers. They have an explosive offense that can win multiple ways and a young defense that's playing better, and with confidence."

Larry Hartstein: "I've been touting the Packers since early December when they were 18/1, and now they're the only value play on the board. Aaron Rodgers makes everyone around him better. With its improved defense, Green Bay could easily win two more."

Mike Tierney: "I'd take Pittsburgh because of the hypothetical Super Bowl spreads from Bookmaker.eu. They project the Steelers would be favored by 3 over Atlanta and 3.5 over Green Bay. That means Pittsburgh, the team with the longest odds to win the Super Bowl, would be a 'dog in only one remaining game, while Green Bay, the team with the next highest odds, would be a 'dog in both. Thus, there is value in the Steelers."

Dave Richard: "I'm a sucker for a safe bet, so give me the Patriots +150. I'm assuming they'll dismiss the Steelers next week, so it gives me better than even money they beat either Aaron Rodgers or Matt Ryan in the Super Bowl. In fact, it creates a hedge opportunity since the Pats figure to be favored against the Packers or Falcons."

Nick Kostos: "Atlanta's offense is just too good. They'll score more points against Green Bay than Dallas did (31) and their defense is better than the Cowboys'. I like Atlanta by 10 in the NFC title game. And in the Super Bowl -- probably against New England -- the Patriots won't be able to stop the Falcons either. The Packers present better value at +450, but the problem is they won't get past Championship Sunday. I like the Falcons to win it all."

Mike McClure: "The Steelers seem like the obvious pick at +500, but I'm worried about the matchup with Tom Brady and the Patriots. I'm putting my money on the Green Bay Packers as the hottest team in the NFL. Green Bay has a much easier Championship round matchup than Pittsburgh and they might get a boost with Jordy Nelson returning to the lineup. Don't sleep on that defense. Go PACK Go!"

RJ White: "I'd have to go with the Falcons at their price. Sure, their defense isn't great, but they can go point-for-point with anyone thanks to their historically excellent offense. They'll keep playing in favorable conditions and keep winning shootouts. I don't see how Green Bay is going to slow them down and I like them in the underdog role against whatever team advances out of the AFC."

Josh Nagel: "I think Green Bay provides the best value of the remaining teams at the current prices. The Packers are on a run that is reminiscent of when they won the Super Bowl a few years ago, with a red-hot offense supplemented by an improved defense at just the right time. I think they are capable of beating the Falcons in Atlanta -- as they almost did in the regular season -- and would have a good shot against either team coming out of the AFC."
