Bookies.com NFL Week 7 Betting Power Rankings
Kudos to those who saw something in the San Francisco 49ers before Week 1.
The Niners were +5000 to win the 2020 Super Bowl in the preseason. Fast-forward six weeks, and they’re unbeaten, have an offense and defense ranked in the top five and are now +1100 to take home the Lombardi Trophy for the first time since 1994.
Those odds are tied for the fourth-lowest. New England is the prohibitive favorite to win the Super Bowl at +260. Kansas City, which at one point was tied with the Patriots for lowest odds, is now +900 as it fights through a two-game losing streak.

Odds are current as of publication but subject to change. Here you can compare the latest 2020 Super Bowl odds at top sportsbooks.
1. New England Patriots (6-0) +260
The Pats escaped Buffalo with a six-point win, but that’s the only game New England hasn’t won by at least 16 points. We’ll see if the rejuvenated Jets can keep it close.
2. San Francisco 49ers (5-0) +1100
There’s no dismissing the Niners anymore. Their second-ranked defense humbled Jared Goff and the Rams in a 20-7 victory, and the offense ranks fourth in yards gained. They’ve won their five games by an average of nearly 17 ppg. They travel cross-country to face the Redskins on Sunday.
3. New Orleans Saints (5-1) +700
Teddy Bridgewater hasn’t lost a game since taking over for the injured Drew Brees. Two of those wins the Saints managed just 12 and 13 points, but the defense was shut down in victories. It looks to continue that trend against the points-challenged Bears.
4. Seattle Seahawks (5-1) +1800
Russell Wilson has 16 TDs and zero INTs, and Chris Carson has been a bull to bring down. The value is still there on the Seahawks, who have won three straight since falling at home to the Saints.
5. Green Bay Packers (5-1) +1100
The Packers continue to win and are 3-0 against the rest of the NFC North, the deepest division in the league. Their offense and defense each rank in the bottom half of the league in yards against/allowed but in the top-half in points scored/allowed.
6. Houston Texans (4-2) +2200
Deshaun Watson and the Texans served notice with a big win at Kansas City on Sunday. They’ve tallied 84 points the last two weeks with another road test at Indy looming.
7. Kansas City Chiefs (4-2) +900
The Chiefs have lost two in a row, both at home, and there are questions that the offense isn’t as indestructible as previously believed. They get another challenge Thursday night at Denver.
8. Baltimore Ravens (4-2) +2200
The Ravens have been in some battles (1-5 ATS) but more often than not have emerged victorious. Lamar Jackson had an otherworldly performance against the Bengals. He next leads the NFL’s top-ranked offense into Seattle.
Lamar Jackson’s Week 6 Stats:— NFL Stats (@NFL_Stats) October 14, 2019
• 21 for 33 (63.6%)
• 236 Passing Yards
• 152 Rushing Yards (8.0 YPC)

9. Buffalo Bills (4-1) +4000
The Bills have the third-ranked defense and come off their bye week rested. They host the winless Dolphins before the Eagles come to town for a real test.
10. Minnesota Vikings (4-2) +2000
Kirk Cousins and the offense finally showed up in a big game, rolling the Eagles 38-20. Cousins has eight TDs and one INT in the Vikings’ four wins and one TD and two INTs in the two defeats.
11. Carolina Panthers (4-2) +3000
Carolina hasn’t lost since Kyle Allen took over for the injured Cam Newton at QB. Only once in Allen’s four games has the Panthers finished with fewer than 34 points. They head into their bye week on a high but with a possible QB situation if Newton is deemed healthy on the other side of it.
12. Detroit Lions (2-2-1) +8000
The Lions hung with the Packers until the very end, and let’s face it, were not helped at all by several questionable calls going against them in the fourth quarter. Detroit looks like the real deal, and all of its games have been decided by four points or less.
