Following their impressive NFC divisional round win this past weekend, Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints are still the prohibitive favorites to win Super Bowl 53 when it gets underway next month. However, Brees has a trio of other elite signal-callers hot on his heels in pursuit of this season’s Super Bowl hardware in the forms of Patrick Mahomes, Jared Goff and the incomparable Tom Brady.
Let’s take a look at the latest NFL Futures Odds to win Super Bowl 53.

New Orleans Saints (14-3)
The Saints (14-3 SU, 10-7 ATS, 7-10 O/U) have gone 7-2 SU and 4-5 ATS at home this season, but they also beat the Los Angeles Rams by 10 points in Week 9 to cash in as a 1.5-point home dog. The Saints average 31.5 points per game to rank a stellar third in scoring while allowing 22.1 points per game defensively (14th). More importantly, New Orleans has never lost a home playoff game in the Drew Brees/Sean Payton era. The Saints have also recorded quality wins over playoff participants, Baltimore, the L.A. Rams and Philadelphia.
Kansas City Chiefs (13-4)
By now, you probably know that Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs (13-4 SU, 10-6-1 ATS, 1-6-1 O/U) average a league-leading 35.3 points per game this and that they’ve got some seriously gifted players all over the place on offense, starting with their strong-armed second-year signal-caller. You probably also know that Kansas City was super generous in allowing 26.3 points per contest defensively (24th) although it didn’t matter much as they basically outscored everyone on their 2018 regular season schedule to win the AFC West and the top seed in the conference playoffs. Patrick Mahomes became just the third quarterback to throw 50 TD passes in a single season and Kansas City has gone 8-1 SU and 6-2-1 ATS in nine home dates this season. Now, they’re looking to get some revenge against New England for their 43-40 Week 6 road loss against New England.
L.A. Rams (14-3)
The Rams (14-3 SU, 8-8-1 ATS, 9-8 O/U) have gone 6-2 SU and 4-4 ATS in eight road dates this season while putting up 32.9 points per game to rank a stupendous second in scoring and allowing 24.0 points per game defensively (20th). Los Angeles will be looking to extract some revenge for their 45-35 Week 9 road loss against New Orleans and now, they’ve got some added ammunition in the backfield in the form of veteran C.J. Anderson. L.A. has covered the chalk in three straight heading into the NFC Championship game.
New England Patriots (12-5)
The Patriots (12-5 SU, 10-7 ATS, 6-11 O/U) absolutely overwhelmed the Chargers in their stunning 41-28 AFC divisional round blowout win on Saturday and now, Tom Brady and company have the look of a dangerous team that could get the upset over Kansas City in their second meeting this season. While the Patriots went unbeaten in nine home dates this season, you should also know that New England suffered all five of their regular season losses on the road while compiling an identical 3-5 ATS away from home. The Patriots average 27.2 points per game to rank fourth in scoring while allowing 20.3 points per contest defensively (7th). Keep an eye on the fact that the Patriots ranked an uninspiring 22nd against the pass this season (246.4 ypg).
