Power Rankings and Projections
Every Tuesday, Tony Mejia offers up his NFL Power Poll and Predictions. After watching the AFC continue its dominance in Week 3, it’s no surprise which group he’s high on.

He explained, "Given San Francisco's early issues and a 1-3 week from the division as a whole, there's a new No. 1 here. Similarly, the NFC East continued to disappoint, going 1-3 as well. Is it true that the Cowboys are the most consistent, dependable team among the league's most visible foursome? That's a scary thought. With three teams in the Top 15, the AFC South suddenly looks formidable in spite of being home to Jacksonville. The Colts made the NFL's biggest statement in Week 3, so with three 2-1 teams, the division gets bumped to No. 1 in spite of Houston's disastrous performance in Baltimore. The AFC East also has three teams with winning records, so despite being rightfully dubious, there's no choice but to move them up substantially."

LVH adjusts Futures

Despite owning the early bragging rights, Jay Kornegay and his staff of oddsmakers at the Las Vegas Hotel and Casino SuperBook believe the NFC has more depth and the conference would be a favorite in this year’s finale.

Super Bowl XLVIII Early Game Line (2/2/14)
NFC -1
AFC         Total 49 ½

Last week, the LVH had this line at a pick ‘em. Along with the NFC getting a slight push, the total also dropped from 50 ½ to 49 ½ points.

The LVH futures have also been adjusted after three weeks of play and most of the attention at the betting counter has been given to the unbeaten teams. New Orleans dropped from 18/1 to 10/1 to win Super Bowl XLVIII and Chicago moved from 25/1 to 12/1. Kansas City (20/1) and Miami (25/1) are two other undefeated clubs that were adjusted.

Below are the current odds at the LVH SuperBook and the Preseason Odds that were offered prior to Week 1.
