With the Wild Card games over, the focus now shifts to the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs and who out of that group has the best chance of winning it all this year.

Gone already are some of the favorites. With eight teams left, the oddsmakers are clear on who they think should be the last team standing at the end of the season.

Below is a breakdown of every team left, their odds to win the Super Bowl and why or why not they should be favored in the eyes of the oddsmakers and you!

New England Patriots +165 – It is no surprise that the Patriots are still the favorites to come out of the AFC. The simple fact that they have home field advantage throughout the playoffs is almost enough to put them over the top. But add in the fact that New England recorded a +27 turnover margin this season and the fact that Tom Brady only threw four interceptions all year long – the Patriots look like money in the bank. Next up is the Jets – a team that they beat 45-3 only a month ago. Add to that, a battered and bruised Ravens or Steelers squad awaits. With an improved running game, an opportunistic defense and a 15 game home winning streak for Mr. Brady, this team is going to be hard to stop.

Atlanta Falcons +500 – Home field is a big reason that the Falcons are second on the list. Matt Ryan has only lost in the Georgia Dome two times in three years, Michael Turner has turned in a Pro Bowl caliber season and Roddy White caught 20 more passes than anyone in the NFL this season. There is plenty to like if you are a Falcons fan! However, Turner’s numbers have declined – 3.4 yards per carry in the last three games and the Falcons have to play the scariest underdog team left in the playoffs – the Green Bay Packers this week. The Packers will score points on the average Atlanta defense, and I am not sure the Falcons will be able to match them.  I like Atlanta but I am not sure they get by Green Bay this week!

Green Bay Packers +550 – It is pretty hard to look at what the Packers accomplished against the Eagles last week and not be impressed. It was the first time all season that Mike Vick was held to under 27 points! In fact, the Green Bay Packers have the league’s 2nd best scoring defense (15 points per game allowed) and they held 13 of 17 opponents this season to 20 or less points. Aaron Rodgers is on fire – efficient and effective and James Starks has the Packers looking like they can actually run the ball. Green Bay is peaking and is good value at +550 to win it all!

Pittsburgh Steelers +600 – The Steelers aren’t getting much love are they? They are 4th on the list after being 2nd just last week. Troy Polamalu should be heeled and ready for their grudge match with division rivals Baltimore this week to set up a meeting with possibly the Patriots. Strong running, superb quarterback play and a defense that ranked #1 in most statistical categories this season should have the Steelers higher in my eyes. If they can get by Baltimore, the sky is the limit for this team.

Chicago Bears +650 – The Bears got lucky in that they will get to face the Seahawks this week. Still, Jay Cutler and the Bears will have to do something that is very difficult for them – string together three straight mistake-free games. The winner of the Packers/Falcons awaits the winner of Chicago/Seattle. I don’t like the chances for either team.

Baltimore Ravens +900 – The Ravens are on quite a run, winning five straight games. They were able to shut a good KC team to 161 yards and seven points last week. They are playing inspired football and generated five turnovers last week as well. I would not want to be the team facing a Ravens team that is 4-2 on the road in the playoffs in their last six. They remain my dark horse team to come out of the AFC.

New York Jets +1400 – The Jets surprised everyone last week by winning on the road in Indianapolis. Now they face a team that beat them 45-3 only a month ago. The fact remains that the Jets are struggling on offense and they can no longer be considered an elite defensive team. The Jets did manage 161 yards on the ground last week which is a good sign heading into New England. Still, they are rightfully near the bottom of the list of favorites. But if they can somehow get by the Patriots, and I don’t think that they will, anything can happen!

Seattle Seahawks +5000 – Seattle shocked the world last week but the Cinderella story may be over. It’s true that they are playing possibly their best football of the season but the reality is that the rest of their games will be on the road where they won just once this season. A win over Chicago this week is possible but a victory in either Atlanta or Green Bay is far, farfetched!

Dave you got your info wrong.

If the Packers win and the Seahawks win then Seattle won`t play at Green bay, the NFC championship will be in Seattle
