The
Pittsburgh Steelers
held onto that spot as long as they could. After a 30-9 drubbing at the hands of the
Jacksonville Jaguars
, Pittsburgh fell out of its top spot and the
New England Patriots
reclaimed the throne as Super Bowl favorites — according to bettors. Per simulations, on the other hand, the key takeaways are that the AFC is better than the NFC, but only in a very top-heavy way. The
Kansas City Chiefs
and Patriots are eating up 44.63 percent of the Super Bowl projections — whereas the top team in the NFC (the
Green Bay Packers
) is sitting at a lowly 6.81 percent. Although the Patriots have struggled at times, they’re still considered by bettors to be an odds-on favorite, and a late-season surge is imminent to many.

It only took an 0-5 start and every one of their receivers getting surgery, but people are finally down on the Giants. With
Odell Beckham
Jr. out for the season and the Giants in a nearly insurmountable hole, they finally fell to 49ers tanking territory. The Jets are trying to wriggle their way up the board, now at 300/1 odds themselves, and in a game against the Patriots this coming week could be a season defining one for them. At the top, the Patriots and Packers are leading their respective conferences, with the Pack looking like they have what it takes to make a deep playoff run.

The Panthers proved their game against the Patriots was no fluke, beating the Lions to move to 4-1 on the season. They face stiff competition in the Falcons, who will be coming off of a bye week. People aren’t ready to trust the Bills or Jaguars just yet, but the signs of life are definitely there for both teams. The Jaguars apparently just need to play AFC North teams every week, because their utter trouncing of the Steelers didn’t go unnoticed. The Bengals have maneuvered their way up to draw even odds with the AFC North rival Ravens after a horrific start to the season.

The Texans and Vikings are two good teams with glaring holes. The Vikings’ quarterback situation remains in question, whereas the Texans are trying to figure out how their already struggling defense can overcome the loss of JJ Watt. They did it last year, and they’ll need to repeat the feat again. Finally, the undefeated Chiefs are continuing to get disrespected by bettors, although perhaps that’s more of a testament to playoff Andy Reid than anything. Simulations love them right now, but they’ll need to stay on the hot streak to turn even more people.
