Six undefeated teams are still standing through the first five weeks of the NFL season, but not all are viewed as Super Bowl contenders in the eyes of odds makers. The Packers, Patriots, Bengals, Falcons, Broncos, and Panthers have all seen their chances rise in the last couple of weeks, but only two are seen as legitimate threats.

The 5-0 Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers not only continue to reign atop the rest of the league at 3/1 odds, but they’ve actually improved from 11/2 before the season began. Green Bay’s putting up 27.4 points per game, and Rodgers is tied for the NFL lead with 13 touchdown passes while the defense is second in the league with 20 sacks.

But from there, the rest of the NFL’s undefeated elite have received mixed votes of confidence in the latest batch of Super odds, according to VegasInsider.com.

The Patriots, currently 4-0 after crushing Dallas in Week 5, have seen their odds rise precipitously from 9/1 to start the season to now 7/2 as Green Bay’s potential foe in Super Bowl 50 on Feb. 7 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Otherwise, odds makers are still hesitant to back some of the league’s more surprising clubs. Even following their overtime victory over Seattle on Sunday, the Bengals sit at 12/1 odds behind the one-loss and 10/1 Arizona Cardinals despite owning a healthy three-game lead in the AFC North. However, the Bengals were viewed as 50/1 longshots before Week 1.

The biggest discrepancy between perfect records and odds rests next to the NFC South rival Falcons and Panthers. With a first-year head coach and a defense that was one of the NFL’s worst last season, the Falcons were 40/1 dark horses but have improved to 15/1 odds. But Atlanta still finds itself just back of defending NFC champion and 2-3 Seattle at 14/1.

Meanwhile the 4-0 Panthers and quarterback Cam Newton are in a dead-heat with Atlanta for the division crown, but odds makers have handed them 30/1 odds to win the Super Bowl. Carolina has seen an increase from its 50/1 odds prior to Week 1, but they haven’t been truly tested this season. The Panthers have victories over teams with a combined 5-15 record, and in their last three games they haven’t won by more than a touchdown.

Peyton Manning and the Broncos were just outside the league’s elite at 14/1 odds to start the year, but even with the 39-year-old quarterback struggling the Broncos defense has put the perennial contenders at 12/1. Denver is currently first in the league in yards surrendered (278.0) and second in points allowed per game (15.8).
