LAS VEGAS – The NFL offseason is still in the early stages, however, things have gotten off to a hot start with big news surrounding big-time players. Arguably the biggest news has been that Aaron Rodgers has decided to re-sign with the Green Bay Packers. In other news, Russell Wilson was traded from the Seattle Seahawks to the Denver Broncos.
With that, legal online sportsbooks have seen some major shifts in the odds to win Super Bowl 57 as both the Packers and Broncos have seen their odds heavily jump forward.
Super Bowl 57 Odds
- Buffalo Bills +700
- Kansas City Chiefs +700
- Green Bay Packers +800
- Los Angeles Rams +1100
- Denver Broncos +1200
- San Francisco 49ers +1200

Rodgers Re Ups With Packers
After demanding a trade away from the Packers just a year ago, the relationship between Rodgers and Green Bay has certainly gotten better as he has decided to stay loyal and re-sign with the team. Both sides agreed upon a 4-year, $200 million extension with $153 million guaranteed. This makes Rodgers the highest-paid player in NFL history.
Before his decision to return, the Packers Super Bowl odds sat at +1600 and have since been cut in half to +800. While it is such as big jump, it is reasonable being that Rodgers is the reigning two-time MVP.
Something else to keep in mind is that the Packers also placed their franchise tag on superstar receiver, Davante Adams which will return him to play with Rodgers for at least one more year before an extension is given.
Does Russ Move The Needle For The Broncos?
Russell Wilson is another quarterback that had been rumored to request a trade over the last year and his wish has finally come true as he has been traded to the Denver Broncos. Wilson is coming off of a down year he threw for the least amount of yards in his career at 3,113.

However, many could argue that Wilson will be put in a much better situation with the Broncos than he was with the Seahawks. After all, some might also say that the Broncos are just a quarterback away from contending for a Super Bowl.
Looking at Denver compared to Seattle, last season they finished as a top-3 defense allowing just 18.9 ppg. On offense, even with a worse quarterback under center, the Broncos finished with more passing yards as well.
Following the trade, the Broncos NFL odds to win the Super Bowl shot way down from +2500 to +1200.
