Week 3 of the NFL season saw more teams drop in the Super Bowl futures than climb, putting more distance between the contenders and pretends.
The Seattle Seahawks joined the Denver Broncos as 7-2 (+350) co-favorites to win Super Bowl XLVIII after improving to 3-0 with a 45-17 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday. Seattle was priced at +450 after Week 2. Denver, which is 2-0, plays the Oakland Raiders Monday night.
The most notable moves in the NFL futures involve those teams off to a surprise 0-3 start. The New York Giants, Washington Redskins, and Pittsburgh Steelers all failed to pick up their first victory Sunday. The Giants dropped from 40-1 to 100-1, the Redskins moved from 50-1 to 100-1 and the Steelers slipped from 75-1 to 100-1 after an embarrassing loss to the Chicago Bears Sunday night.
Other significant adjustments were the New Orleans Saints moving from 12-1 to 10-1, New England Patriots going from 10-1 to 8-1, Green Bay Packers 8-1 to 12-1, San Francisco 49ers 6-1 to 10-1, Atlanta Falcons 16-1 to 30-1, Chicago Bears 20-1 to 12-1, Dallas Cowboys 40-1 to 20-1, Houston Texans 10-1 to 20-1, Indianapolis Colts 60-1 to 30-1, and Cincinnati Bengals jumping from 18-1 to 14-1 after knocking off the Packers in Week 3.
