Now that we’ve made it past the official halfway point of this year’s NFL season, all eyes are slowly turning towards the playoffs. Like every other year, the best performers are leading the charts while several of them have emerged as favourites for the Super Bowl.
While it isn’t surprising to find the Steelers and the Chiefs at the top of the board, we plan on delving a little deeper into a few of Tier II and Tier III teams that aren’t in the limelight at the moment but could emerge as a contender within the next few weeks.
The best value in sports betting is when an underdog shocks the world with its performance at the Super Bowl.

Top 3 Sleeper NFL Teams that Could Win Super Bowl 2020/21
- Las Vegas Raiders (5-3) – Jon Gruden has been the Raiders’ backbone so far. And although the side has a balanced team, they’re considered the underdogs at the AFC. While their performance has been inconsistent so far this season, they’re capable of breaking the odds and turning the game at any point.
Case in point, the Raiders broke the Chiefs at the Arrowheads Stadium, a feather in their proverbial hats. The team has also taken down the Saints by 10 points and the Browns by double digits in the past. And if that isn’t reason enough to consider them for the Super Bowl, I don’t know what is!
- 2. Tennessee Titans (6-2) – The Titans can’t be tagged as sleepers anymore. Despite making a dash at the AFC Championship last season and starting this year with six wins from eight appearances, the side is getting very little respect. When you look at the odds of the Titans winning this year’s Super Bowl, the odds are 25-1.
So, while their current performance figures are forcing me to consider them a legitimate threat, the media and sportsbooks seem to disagree. There are quite a few reasons why I like them. Let’s start with Quarterback Ryan Tannehill, for instance. He’s been a force to reckon with, as has been Running Back Derrick Henry.
- 3. Miami Dolphins (5-3) – The Miami Dolphins are a quality football team. There, I said it! After reeling off four straight wins with rookie Tua Tagovailoa under centre, the team has the potential to win the Super Bowl. There was quite a bit of tension when the Dolphins replaced Ryan Fitzpatrick with Tua, but the move seemingly paid off.
Tua’s hip injury is healed completely, and his performance has been consistent so far. While young QBs have to endure their share of pain, there was nothing not to love about Tua’s performance in the last couple of games. Hopefully, the team can shine on through the Super Bowl this season.
