The Chiefs’ Week 14 win saw their odds of an NFL Championship shorten from +875 to +650.

San Francisco was the biggest mover in BetAmerica’s Super Bowl market following Week 13, shortening from +800 to +500 on the back of their impressive 48-46 come from behind victory of the New Orleans Saints.

The Ravens continued to tighten their grip at the top of betting, firming from +275 to +240 after their 24-17 victory over Buffalo.

“The Ravens or 49ers would certainly be a fairytale betting result for a number of our players who snapped up their huge pre-season odds of +3300 and +3500 respectively,” said BetAmerica spokesperson Andrew Brown.

The Saints (+550), Seahawks (+1200), Packers (+1600) and Vikings (+2800) round out the top eight in BetAmerica’s market.
