NFL: Nine undefeated teams remaining, which team will be the last?

After two weeks of play, nine teams remain undefeated in the NFL. Last year’s Super Bowl champions Kansas City Chiefs and the Buffalo Bills are already out of the mix after losing their season openers to the Detroit Lions and the New York Jets. On Bet99, you can place a bet on which team will be the last undefeated team this season. At 6-0, the Philadelphia Eagles were the final team with no losses last season. Two teams have the best odds right now.

Quick Take

  • The Philadelphia Eagles and the San Francisco 49ers are the betting favourites
  • The Washington Commanders have the worst odds
  • Dallas Cowboys and Baltimore Ravens in the mix

The betting favourites

The Philadelphia Eagles and the San Francisco 49ers are the betting favourites to be the last undefeated team in the NFL this year. The Eagles and 49ers have +320 odds on Bet99. The Chiefs, Bills, Cincinnati Bengals, and New York Jets — some of the other teams that had a shot heading into the season — have already lost games this season after two weeks. At this rate, only one or two teams will be undefeated when week five comes around. This is a great chance to place a bet while a lot of teams are still in the mix because the odds will be less enticing when more teams pick up a loss. This is a betting market that will not be available all season and could be gone any week on NFL betting sites.

Jalen Hurts and the Eagles will play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on September 25 and the Washington Commanders on October 1. They should be able to win both games, but Baker Mayfield and the Buccaneers have enough talent to pull off the upset. The Buccaneers are 2-0, so one of these teams will fall out of the race after this game. The Eagles schedule becomes difficult after those two games; they play against the Los Angeles Rams, Jets, Miami Dolphins, Commanders again, Dallas Cowboys, Chiefs, Bills, and 49ers.

Christian McCaffrey and the 49ers have a tricky upcoming schedule. They will play against the New York Giants on Thursday, and then against the Arizona Cardinals, Dallas Cowboys, Cleveland Browns, Minnesota Vikings, and Bengals. They should have a great chance to be the last undefeated team if they beat the Cowboys, but they could be upset by one of the three teams that they play after that.

A few other teams worth considering

At +425, the Cowboys are in a similar position as the 49ers. One of these teams must win their game on October 8. If the Cowboys and 49ers tie, both teams will be eliminated from this market unless all the other undefeated teams tie that week according to Bet99. Their schedule will be easier after that, but they play against the Eagles in week nine.

Based on their schedule and odds, the Baltimore Ravens are a great pick here. They have +600 odds. The Ravens do not have to play the Cowboys, Eagles, Chiefs, or Bills. And they do not have to play the Bengals until week 11.

Anything can happen

The Dolphins +850, New Orleans Saints +1000, Atlanta Falcons +1200, Tampa Bay Buccaneers +1400, and Commanders +2700 are all in the mix. The Dolphins are probably the best and most reliable team because they have one of the most talented offenses in the league. They will be a strong choice if they can beat the Bills in week four. But the Falcons and Saints have easier schedules.

The Saints upcoming games are against the Green Bay Packers, Buccaneers, New England Patriots, Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars. The Falcons upcoming games are against the Lions, Jaguars, Texans, Commanders, and Buccaneers. The Saints and Buccaneers play against each other in week four.
