Given that the Philadelphia Eagles are the biggest Wild Card weekend underdogs in the 2019 NFL playoffs, you might think they have the worst Super Bowl odds of any remaining team.
That’s not the case.
According to the latest odds from BetOnline.ag, there are four teams with longer Super Bowl odds: the Houston Texans (No. 3 seed in the AFC), the Indianapolis Colts (No. 6 seed in the AFC), the Seattle Seahawks (No. 5 seed in the NFC), and ... the Dallas Cowboys (No. 4 seed in the NFC).

Despite being the No. 6 seed, four teams have worse odds than them.
It’s clear that not everyone thinks this idea that the Eagles are a dangerous team heading into the playoffs is so crazy. They’re certainly getting some more respect than other teams.
Here’s how the Eagles’ potential Super Bowl matchups stack up, from most likely to least:
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Kansas City Chiefs - 40/1
Philadelphia Eagles vs. New England Patriots - 50/1
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Baltimore Ravens - 100/1
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Los Angeles Chargers - 125/1
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Houston Texans - 150/1
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Indianapolis Colts - 150/1
And when it comes to this year’s Super Bowl LIII MVP odds, the reigning title holder ranks around the middle of the pack.
