The Super Bowl 57 odds are out already, and the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills are the co-favorites to win it all next year.
Already trying to get into next year’s NFL betting cycle? We’re off and running.
Over at DraftKings, the Super Bowl 57 odds have been dropped, and the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills are both 7/1 to win the title. Kansas City and Buffalo are not surprising, considering many believed they were the two best teams in football this season.
In the AFC Divisional when they linked up at Arrowhead Stadium, we got one of the greatest games ever played as the Chiefs emerged with a 42-36 overtime thrilled to advance. While both teams have some offseason business to handle, each has a loaded coaching staff, great young quarterback and hoards of talent around them. Suffice to say, both will be in the mix.
After Kansas City and Buffalo, it’s the world-champion Los Angeles Rams coming in at 10/1 while the AFC champ Cincinnati Bengals aren’t far off the pace at 12/1. The Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers — who matched up in the NFC Wild Card round — are both 14/1, while the Green Bay Packers are 16/1. Finally, the Baltimore Ravens and Denver Broncos are both 18/1, with everybody else being at 22/1 and worse.
As for the worst odds to hoist the Lombardi Trophy? A pair of teams who have never done so and another who hasn’t since 1968, with the Detroit Lions, New York Jets and Houston Texans all sitting at 150/1.
Since everybody looks for value, there could be some in the Packers. It seems their odds are low because many are wondering what will happen with quarterback Aaron Rodgers. If he returns, though, they’ll be one of the elite teams, especially in the weak NFC. Rodgers is coming off consecutive MVP performances, giving Green Bay plenty of reason to dream.
Additionally, the 49ers are intriguing at 14/1. If Trey Lance is the player San Francisco believed in enough to trade three first-round picks for, he’s going to be an upgrade over Jimmy Garoppolo. And, despite a litany of injuries this year, the Niners still went to the NFC title game and held a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter before falling short to the Rams.
