New England Patriots are on track to win their third Super Bowl in four years after a comfortable win over Denver Broncos, by a score of 41-16.
Last season’s champions moved in from $4.50 to $4.33 after winning their fifth game in a row, as their evergreen quarterback Tom Brady continued to defy the test of time.
When the 40-year-old threw a touchdown pass to Dwayne Allen late in the second quarter, the tight end became the 68th target to whom Brady has thrown a touchdown. The NFL record is 70, set by Vinny Testaverde.
Philadelphia had the bye this weekend, but the team with the best record in the NFL remain second pick, at $6, to win hold the Lombardi trophy for the first time since 1960.
Right behind them are their in-state neighbours Pittsburgh Steelers, who are at $8, after they beat Indianapolis Colts, in a close finish, when Chris Boswell slotted a 33-yard field goal to give the AFC North leaders their seventh win from nine starts.
The Kansas City Chiefs also had the bye, but their quote of $10 is not in danger of blowing out anytime soon, with a Week 11 match-up against the lowly New York Giants coming up next weekend.
The Giants lost 31-21 to the San Francisco 49ers, which was the Californian club’s first win of the season, while the New York team drop to 1-8.
The New Orleans Saints are now at $11 to win their first title since 2010, after they pounded the Buffalo Bills 47-10 as Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara combined for four touchdowns.
The NFC North-leading Minnesota Vikings won their fifth game in a row, in what was an entertaining game against the Washington Redskins. The 38-30 result was setup by quarterback Case Keenum, who threw touchdowns to four different receivers, and sees the Vikings come into $17.
Other winners included the Green Bay Packers, who ended a three-game losing streak with a 23-16 win over the Chicago Bears, the Tennessee Titans, who squeezed past the Cincinnati Bengals 24-20 and the Jacksonville Jaguars, who also won a tight one, this time in overtime, over the Los Angeles Chargers 20-17.
