Super Bowl Betting Futures & Odds
The Super Bowl is the most prestigious trophy in American sports, as 32 teams vie for the championship of America’s most popular sport. While there is still plenty of time until the 2023 NFL season kicks off, it is never too early to think about which teams could lift the Lombardi Trophy after Super Bowl LVIII. Here, we look at the odds for the next Super Bowl and which teams could end up winning it.
Tracking The Super Bowl 58 Betting Odds
Early odds have the usual suspects as the Super Bowl LVIII favorites, with teams like the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills at the top of the list of teams expected to win it all. But there is some benefit to looking further down the list of teams on the board as well. This is especially true prior to free agency and the NFL Draft, where teams can really fix their problems and go from also-rans to Super Bowl contenders.
Where Is Super Bowl LVIII Taking Place?
Super Bowl LVIII is set to take place at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. That means the Las Vegas Raiders would need to make it to the Super Bowl for a team to have home field advantage in this game. That will be tough for them to accomplish as they appear to be moving on from Derek Carr at quarterback this season, but it is not entirely impossible either.
Teams To Look At To Win Super Bowl LVIII
As the NFL world turns its attention to the 2023-2024 season, there are several teams that will expect to be in the mix for the Lombardi Trophy. Here, we look at the top teams in the race for Super Bowl LVIII, in an early glance at the NFL landscape going into the 2023 season.
Kansas City Chiefs
The defending champion Kansas City Chiefs will be among the favorites to win the Super Bowl during the 2023 season. Patrick Mahomes will once again lead their explosive offense into battle against the rest of the league, which has still not figured out how to stop them yet. Having won two titles in the last four years, it is entirely possible that the Chiefs could make it three out of five this coming season.
Over the last two years, the Buffalo Bills have easily been one of the best teams in the NFL. However, they have come up short in the postseason in those seasons, falling to the Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals over the last two postseasons. This coming season, Josh Allen will once again lead an offense that will likely be among the best in the NFL, with the question being whether their team can hold up down the stretch in the winter weather.
San Francisco 49ers
One of the most impressive teams last season was the San Francisco 49ers, who may have reached the Super Bowl if not for a mountain of quarterback injuries. This season, they should have Trey Lance, Jimmy Garoppolo, and Brock Purdy back healthy, with the question being who they will trust with steering the ship at the most important position on the field. Either way, they are loaded on defense and at the skill positions, and will be a threat.
The Cincinnati Bengals came a game away from reaching a second straight Super Bowl last season, losing to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game. They will be a serious Super Bowl contender again this season, though, as quarterback Joe Burrow leads an offense that has been able to move the ball through the air at will over the last two seasons. If their offensive line is upgraded at all, they could steamroll the rest of the league in 2023.
Philadelphia nearly had a championship team last season, with the Philadelphia Eagles losing to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII. They were dominant in the trenches on both sides of the ball during that season, and the play of Jalen Hurts and his offensive weapons will be expected to be great once again. But this team does have some decisions to make from a salary perspective, which could impact their ability to compete for another Super Bowl berth.
The Dallas Cowboys were good last season, making it to the second round of the NFL Playoffs. But they were out of their depth against the defense of the San Francisco 49ers, getting eliminated before the NFC title game. This season, the Cowboys have some decisions to make on offense, as their running game and offensive line will need to be better to truly compete with the big boys in the NFC.
Other Teams To Watch
There are a few teams at longer odds worth keeping an eye on going into the 2023 NFL season. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are interesting this year, as they move on from Tom Brady and should be able to upgrade at the quarterback position with someone younger and more mobile. The Detroit Lions are building something interesting, and will compete for a playoff spot once again. And if the Minnesota Vikings can figure out their defense in any way, they could be a sneaky Super Bowl LVIII contender.
