Early Super Bowl Contenders and Upcoming Playoff Picture

The 2018 NFL regular season is approaching its conclusion. There are only few weeks left before we get the full playoff picture and some teams are deeply involved into the hunt for final playoff places. There have been plenty of exciting games in the recent weeks and the postseason outlook is constantly changing week after week. However, some quality teams already established themselves as big favorites to go to the Super Bowl, so get your early Super Bowl free bets ready if you want to get better odds. The following are currently the hottest teams in each football conference, which should give you a general idea who to bet on.

AFC Hot Teams

The Kansas City Chiefs are leaders of AFC West with 10 wins in 12 games. They are leading the conference in front of the Patriots and Texans, but their remaining schedule is not easy as they have tough games coming up against Baltimore, LA Chargers, Seattle and Oakland. As usual, New England Patriots are among the top teams in the NFL with big chances to go all the way. Their current record is 9-3, which puts them at the top of AFC East. They easily won against the Vikings in their last game and remained very close to the Chiefs, fighting for the home field advantage in the playoffs. Apart from the game against Steelers, the Patriots have fairly easy remaining schedule against Miami, Buffalo and NY Jets.

The Houston Texans went top of AFC South after beating Cleveland in their last game. Favorable remaining schedule against Indianapolis, NY Jets, Philadelphia Eagles and Jacksonville Jaguars means that they hold everything in their own hands to finish first in this conference, if they manage four wins. The Pittsburgh Steelers are the leaders of AFC North with 7-4-1 record. There is big possibility they will face either the Chargers or Chiefs in the playoffs, losing against both of them in the regular season. Speaking of the Chargers, at the moment they are at wild card position, but they can go higher with a couple of important wins in their remaining games.

NFC Hot Teams

The Los Angeles Rams are leading the pack from the NFC West, winning in 11 of 12 games so far. If they manage to beat the Bears next week they will likely get the No.1 seed overall in the playoffs. The New Orleans Saints are 10-2 in NFC South, despite losing against the Cowboys in their last game, but they do have a favorable remaining schedule. The Chicago Bears from NFC North and the Dallas Cowboys from NFC East are both in great shape currently, looking certain to go as underdog favorites for the Super Bowl from the NFC. Seahawks and Redskins are close to securing playoffs, but without big chances to go all the way to the Super Bowl.

These were currently the hottest teams from both conferences, but some surprises are possible in the last few weeks of the regular season. Get your bets ready and good luck backing your team for the Super Bowl.
