The final week of the NFL regular season accomplished more than locking in the final playoff field and positioning.

Week 17 also shook up the future odds on teams to win the Super Bowl at Las Vegas sports books. While the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots reclaimed their status as favorites for another week, their prices went further downward after they both clinched a first-round bye.

The Patriots and Broncos are both 5-to-2 to win the Super Bowl and 11-to-10 to represent the AFC in the championship game at the LVH Superbook.

Denver (13-3 straight-up, 10-6 against the spread) and New England (12-4 SU, 9-7 ATS) were 7-to-2 before Sunday’s action, but won by a combined 56-3 against Kansas City (2-14 SU, 5-11 ATS) and Miami (7-9 SU, 8-8 ATS), respectively.

But the real shift in odds came because Houston (12-4 SU, 9-7 ATS) lost its third game in four weeks to relinquish home-field advantage. The Texans were co-favorites to win the Super Bowl less than a month ago, but are now long shots at 20-to-1.

The prices for NFC teams were less volatile. Oddsmakers continue to rank the San Francisco 49ers (11-4-1 SU, 9-7 ATS) as a slight favorite over the Atlanta Falcons (13-3 SU, 9-6-1 ATS) and Green Bay Packers (11-5 SU, 9-7 ATS).

The 49ers are available at 9-to-2 to win the Super Bowl, with the Falcons at 6-to-1 and the Packers at 9-to-1. The LVH took heavy money on San Francisco to win the Super Bowl before the season.

That explains why the 49ers stayed at a chalkier price in the Super Bowl futures, but trail the Falcons in odds to win the NFC. Atlanta is 2-to-1 to reach the Super Bowl with San Francisco 9-to-5.

The Superbook altered their Super Bowl line by a half-point with the Patriots and Broncos earning byes. The AFC is now favored by 2.5 points over the NFC with the over/under listed at 51 points.
