Today we are going to look at updated Super Bowl online betting odds for the 2018 New England Patriots for Sunday, January 7th, 2018.

The New England Patriots solidified their role as the best team in the AFC with a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. The win, which came on the road, also gave them the tie breaker over the Steelers if they finish tied with the same record.

After the win, the Patriots odds to win the Super Bowl changed to +240 because they are now likely to have home field advantage in the playoffs.

When the playoffs start, the Patriots, who were already a tough team to beat, will be even tougher because they will have their crowd behind them during their games.

Teams like the Jacksonville Jaguars, who have one of the best defenses in the league, will likely have a chance to pull an upset because they can get pressure on Tom Brady and force him into making bad decisions like the Miami Dolphins did earlier this season.

Even then, the Jaguars will need their offense to put up some points against an equally stingy Patriots defense.

If the Steelers end up being the last team in their way, the Patriots have the psychological advantage over the Steelers because they haven’t lost to the Steelers in the postseason since Brady became their starter, and they just defeated the Steelers in their own house.

Despite the mental edge, the Steelers will have a good chance to win because they will be trying to get some payback for the loss, and will have Antonio Brown available for the whole game if his calf injury isn’t as serious as originally thought.

The Baltimore Ravens are another team that could end up defeating the Patriots in the playoffs because they have defeated them at Gillette Stadium in the past, and won’t be intimidated if they meet again. With Super Bowl 2018 less than one month away all eyes are on the Pats.

The bottom line for any team that hopes to derail the Patriots is this is the NFL and anything is possible, but with Bill Belichick coaching the team with a healthy Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski, their chances don’t look very good.
