Every offseason, there are teams that are being overlooked that turn out to be great. Last season was a bit extreme, with the top-seeded team in each conference, the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens, both having plenty of doubters to begin this year.

This year is no different, but we still need to find the teams being overlooked. With that in mind, these are the three most underrated NFL teams heading into the 2020 season, according to Super Bowl odds provided by FanDuel Sportsbook.

Most Underrated NFL Teams 2020

3. Green Bay Packers (+2500)

No, the Green Bay Packers did not use their first-round pick on someone that directly helps them this season. But the selection is sure to light a fire under quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who plays best with a chip on his shoulder. Green Bay was the NFC's No. 2 seed in 2019 and made it to the NFC Championship Game, yet they are only tied for the seventh-best odds in the conference to make the Super Bowl. Green Bay didn't have the offseason many had hoped it would, but this team is still far more dangerous than its getting credit for.

2. Buffalo Bills (+2700)

The Buffalo Bills are doing absolutely everything right. Their payroll is something that makes other teams jealous, with a center being their highest-paid player this season ($11.6 million). This has given them the flexibility to add playmakers on offense to help take Josh Allen to the next level. This team will go as far as he can take them, with the defense already being elite. If Allen takes the next step, the Bills could be true Super Bowl contenders.

1. Houston Texans (+4600)

The Houston Texans have been given a ton of disrespect due to one man – Bill O'Brien. Yes, he traded away DeAndre Hopkins, but if David Johnson can look better behind an offensive line that is a big improvement from Arizona's, the trade doesn't look so bad. The receiving corps looks more balanced after a couple solid acquisitions as well. Should J.J. Watt find a way to stay healthy on the other side of the ball, the Texans will definitely compete for the AFC South title, and a hot Deshaun Watson heading into the playoffs could be dangerous in the AFC.
