NFL Power Rankings Odds
Among the tools that both odds makers and gamblers use the first among equals are NFL power rankings. And while no system or tool is infallible the fact remains that power ratings are a reliable guide to assess not only a team’s ability but most importantly its relative betting value with the odds. One of the tricks that set winning gamblers apart from the losers is utilizing the power rankings early in the season when there is some residue left over from past reputations and seasons. To put it another way, while power rankings are essential that are comprised and calculated by human beings. Therefore biases, even unintentional, are at least part of the overall equation. Roster moves over the off season are a major factor in how the power rankings are adjusted. As is the case with most everything there can be an overreaction over a new player acquisition.

2019 Top NFL Power Rankings
A quick look at the 2019 NFL power rankings show some familiar teams at the top. The Kansas City Chiefs top most power rankings followed by the New Orleans Saints, Los Angeles Rams, and New England Patriots. Perhaps the Indianapolis Colts are a surprise as far as which teams may be higher than expected. The Chicago Bears are ranked seventh best but could be overrated after a surprise season last year. Despite a two year decline the Atlanta Falcons began 2019 within the top ten of most power ranking sets.
2019 Bottom Feeders
It should come as no surprise that the Miami Dolphins are at the bottom of most NFL Power Rankings for 2019. Miami has floundered for well over a decade and can’t seem to get out of its own way from a management perspective. A great example is the hiring of new head coach Brian Flores, who has never been as much as a coordinator during his days as an NFL assistant. In fact, his claim to fame was that he was a linebackers coach for Bill Belichick at New England. So far anyway this has not caused the needle to move for the Dolphins power rankings.
Top 2019 NFL Draft Pick and 2018 Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray has not caused much in the way of upward movement for the Arizona Cardinals. Arizona is near the bottom of the NFL power rankings with the Dolphins in nearly all sets. A big problem that Murray will soon be dealing with is a lack of strong supporting cast.
The New York Giants decline as a serious contender also happens to show in the power rankings. To their credit the G-Men tried to bolster the offensive line to protect Eli Manning in his final seasons as quarterback but its not likely to be enough. Beyond that Manning’s production continues to decline at a rapid level.
With new head coach Matt LaFleur, the Green Bay Packers could outperform their current power ranking that ranges from 12th to 15th in most sets. Aaron Rodgers is still an elite quarterback and the Packers metrics were not awful. With a fresh voice in LaFleur and more focus the Packers could move up in the relatively weak NFC North.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are another team that may move from their current status in the middle of the power rankings. As angry as Steeler fans have been the fact remains their team has been in the hunt every year and the LeVeon Bell controversy is mercifyully over.
