NEW YORK – With the NFL season starting on Thursday, now is a great time to look at the early favorites to win Super Bowl 56.
Sportsbooks have the Kansas City Chiefs as the early favorite team, with the defending Super Bowl Champions Tampa Bay Buccaneers having the second shortest odds.
With futures odds, NFL betting fans can place action on who they think will win even before the season starts.
Super Bowl 56 Odds
- Kansas City Chiefs +450
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers +650
- Buffalo Bills +1100
- Green Bay Packers +1200
- Los Angeles Rams +1200
Kansas City Chiefs Odds
The Chiefs were a top 10 offense and defense in terms of points gained and points allowed for the season. Kansas City also had the best record in the league at 14-2.
Star QB Patrick Mahomes was second in the league in passing yards, throwing for 4,740 while collecting 38 TDs to only 6 interceptions and having the second-best QBR in the league at 78.1.
The Chiefs Super Bowl loss last season is largely credited to the injured offensive line. Kansas City has doubled down in the off-season, strengthening their o-line while also adding more receivers in Marcus Kemp and Gehrig Dieter to improve their already strong offense.
Betting fans are likely expecting this improved Chiefs team to take the win, viewing their loss last Super Bowl to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a fluke.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Odds
The Buccaneers struggled early on in the season last year, leading to a final 11-5 record and a number two spot in the NFC South. The Buccaneers were underdogs in all of their playoff games outside of the Wild Card matchup with the Washington Football Team.
The defense carried Tampa Bay throughout the playoffs and the front office worked this offseason to bring back most of the defensive core.
On the other end of the field, the offense added TE De’Quan Hampton, resigned WR Antonio Brown, and drafted WR Jaelon Darden giving Brady a solid core to throw to.
The Bucs with a new and improved offense and the same strong defense this season can really be a threat to repeat.
Buffalo Bills Odds
The Buffalo Bills held on to LB Matt Milano who is arguably their best defender, re-signed OT Daryl Williams and OG Jon Feliciano keeping their core o-line intact, and signed WR Emmanuel Sanders to give QB Josh Allen another weapon.
What would be standing in the Bills’ way is the improved AFC East which the Bills dominated in 2020.
The Bills are also in the AFC, meaning they could have to deal with teams like the Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens, and of course the Kansas City Chiefs before making it to the Super Bowl.
Buffalo still has a solid roster so taking their +1100 odds at legal sports betting sites to win it all is not that farfetched.
Green Bay Packers Odds
With this being MVP QB Aaron Rodgers last season with the Packers it is understandable why heavy action is being placed, but the front office has not done much to improve the team.
The Packers have gone to two consecutive NFC Championship games but continue to fail to get over the hump. They have brought back TE Marcedes Lewis, RB Aaron Jones, and TE Robert Tonyan to keep their strong offense.
Very little has gone into fixing here defensive lapses, however, so bettors are banking on Rodgers to yet again carry Green Bay as far as he can.
Rodgers was first in TDs throwing for 48, first in interceptions only throwing 5, and first in QBR at 79.8. He will likely put on another MVP level performance this season but unless the Packers defense improves, it will be tough to get past Tom Brady in the NFC.
Los Angeles Rams Odds
The Los Angeles Rams finished the season with a 10-6 record and upset the Seattle Seahawks in the Wild Card Game mainly due to their strong defensive play.
That same defense is returning but the front office has also made some additions to the offense. The Rams signed WRs Landen Akers and J.J. Koski, signed RB Otis Anderson, and signed TE Kendall Blanton.
With QB Matthew Stafford having more weapons and their offense as a whole becoming more diverse, the Rams could potentially see themselves compete for a Super Bowl spot, but the rest of the division has also improved.
The Seahawks have improved on defense and the Arizona Cardinals have boosted their defense through the draft. Even the San Francisco 49ers have improved and could see a new era begin with rookie QB Trey Lance.
