With the NFL season now on its back nine, the division races along with the contenders to win the Super Bowl will begin to become more clear. While the New England Patriots have remained the favorite all season, the Seattle Seahawks took a big leap forward after their 27-24 OT win over the previously unbeaten San Francisco 49ers.

The Patriots (+260) sit atop the odds and the Seahawks jumped from +3000 to +1400 following Monday night's victory. The 49ers' first loss of the season knocked their odds from +500 to +750, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Sandwiched between the Patriots and 49ers are the New Orleans Saints (+650) and the Baltimore Ravens (+700). Just behind the Seahawks are the Green Bay Packers (+900) and the Kansas City Chiefs (+1200).

KC Chiefs Odds

While each of the five teams with the best odds to win the Super Bowl saw some sort of movement coming out of Week 10, the KC Chiefs' odds remained the same (+1200). Despite losing to the Tennessee Titans, the return of star quarterback Patrick Mahomes and a spot atop the AFC West standings were seemingly enough for their odds to hold steady.

Beyond the Seahawks, no other team saw their odds improve coming out of Week 10. However, with plenty of potential playoff matchups on the Week 11 schedule, we could see a change in the odds to win the Super Bowl as teams start clinching and we inch closer to the postseason.
