- Super 54 concluded less than 24 hours ago with the Kansas City Chiefs taking home the Lombardi Trophy.

SAN FRANCISCO – Super Bowl 54 provided great entertainment and a slew of payouts to millions of sports bettors across the country. But after 3.5 hours of non-stop entertainment, the Kansas City Chiefs left Miami with the title of Super Bowl Champion.
But, what are the Chiefs future odds for Super Bowl 55?
Multiple NFL betting sites have San Francisco as the team with the shortest odds at +500. They are followed by the Kansas City Chiefs at +550, the Baltimore Ravens at +800, the Los Angeles Chargers at +1200, and the Dallas Cowboys at +1400.
Many bettors may want to wait until the 2020 season begins before they place their bets, however, the payouts for certain teams are at an all-time high right now. And while it may be difficult to predict the future, there are certain trends that may aid in betting on Super Bowl 55.
Teams To Keep An Eye On For Super Bowl LV
In the AFC, the first team that should come to the mind of anyone betting on the NFL is the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens displayed one of if not the most prolific offense in the league last season. Led by 2019 NFL MVP, Lamar Jackson, the Ravens have the youth and the depth to be among the NFL’s elite in 2020.
Another team that should spark the interest of NFL bettors in the NFC is the New Orleans Saints. Despite losing in the Wild Card Round of this past year’s NFL playoffs, the Saints still have all the offensive pieces to put together a great run.
The QB situation will likely change over the offseason with all three QBs on the roster looking to get a new contract, but the Saints are in prime position no matter which QB or QBs they ultimately decide to keep. Taysom Hill looks like a front runner and the Saints Super Bowl 55 odds are +1600.
NFL Teams To Stay Away From
When it comes to AFC Teams to possibly stay away from, the Los Angeles Chargers may be that team. The odds indicate that the Chargers are among the NFL’s best teams, however, their 2019 says otherwise.
The team finished the season with a 5-11 record and ranked 20th in terms of total offensive points per game. On the defensive side of the ball, the Chargers ranked 14th in the league in terms of the total points allowed so not terrible but also not great.
The odds for them being so high may come from the fact that the team is rumored to land Tom Brady in the offseason. Before putting action on the Chargers Super Bowl 55 odds, it may be best to wait until Brady has made his decision. One aspect is for certain, Phillip Rivers will not be returning to the team in 2020.
The Cowboys in the NFC are also a team that has let down for those legally betting on sports for the better part of two decades. The last time that the Cowboys won a Super Bowl was in 1996.
The Cowboys do have a great offensive line, great skill position players in Ezekiel Elliot and Amari Cooper, and have landed a Super Bowl-winning head coach in Mike McCarthy.
However, 23 years of letdowns should have sports bettors rightful skeptical.
Both teams that played in Super Bowl 54 should also be looked at with a long hard look. This is especially the case for the loser. Ever since the 16-game regular season era began, the losing team has averaged only 9.57 wins the following year.
Both teams play in a competitive division, and Super Bowl odds aren’t kind for teams who can’t even win 10 games.
