Two NFL teams have emerged as serious contenders to meet in this year’s Super Bowl given their recent play starting in the AFC with the 6-2-1 Pittsburgh Steelers. Following a shaky start with a tie against Cleveland and a pair of losses to Kansas City and Baltimore, they have won their last five games both straight-up and against the spread at BetAnySports. This Sunday, Pittsburgh will be on the road as a 5.5-point favorites against the slumping 3-6 Jacksonville Jaguars.
The hottest team in the NFL right now both on the field and at the betting window is the 8-1 New Orleans Saints. Following a Week 1 loss to Tampa Bay, the Saints have won their last eight games SU while also cashing a winner ATS in their last seven contests. New Orleans will play host to 4-5 Philadelphia late Sunday afternoon as an 8.5-point favorite. The Eagles have been a good team to go against with just two covers in their last eight games.
The Kansas City Chiefs are still leading the race for the top seed in the AFC at 9-1 SU, but they did fail to cover on Sunday in a 26-14 home victory against Arizona as heavy 16-point favorites. The Chiefs are still a very profitable 8-2 ATS heading into Monday night’s huge showdown against the 9-1 Los Angeles Rams in a neutral-site game in Mexico City. The Rams have been opened as 2.5-point favorites, but they have posted a 1-5-1 record ATS over their last seven games.
Another team that has cashed multiple winners in recent weeks is the 6-3 Chicago Bears. They have covered in their last three games to match that record ATS. The total has gone OVER in six of their first nine games. The Bears will face the NFC North rival Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night as 2.5-point home favorites with BetAnySports. The Vikings are a half-game back in the division at 5-3-1 and, coming off a bye, they are 3-1-2 ATS in their last six games.
The Houston Texans are also coming off a bye at 6-3 SU and 4-5 ATS after covering in their last three games. They will be on the road against 6-3 Washington as three-point favorites. The Redskins have a two-game lead in the NFC East and they are 4-1 ATS in their last five games.
